Welcome to Rootschat.

You will need to remove your email address, as per Rootschat policy. Use the ‘Modify’ button, next to the ‘Quote’ button.

Also, note that you are not permitted to post names of anyone who may still be living.

After you have made 2 more posts, folk can contact you using the personal message facility.

I’m finding your post a tad confusing. You say,  ‘son Walter c s Harris born 1873’. So, he was conceived when his father was aged around 73?

When did the father die and what was his wife’s name?

I cannot see a Walter Harris born NZ in 1873, on NZBDM.

The marriage: 1929/2592 Tawa PANIORA to Walter Charles Sidney HARRIS

There are 3 deaths of the same name:

1949/26183 Harris Walter Charles Sidney 76Y - This is the man who arrived in NZ with wife and children.

At Karori Cemetery: http://www.rootschat.com/links/01p59/

1978/30589 Harris Walter Charles Sidney 23 December 1932 - a son of Tawa and Walter?

At Waikumete Cemetery: https://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/cemeteries/Pages/RecordDetails.aspx?recordId=AD3E84997167A21C30FCD5CC6088E919

1979/42768 Harris Walter Charles Sidney 11 March 1904 - I can’t see a birth for this one either. Is this the one who married Tawa?

At Kelvin Grove Cemetery (located by Kiwi-terrier, for me): https://www.pncc.govt.nz/services/cemetery-and-cremation-search/warrant/?id=6889

Where have you got your information from?

Do you have the marriage cert for Walter and Tawa?

Do you have the death certs for the Walter who died in 1949 and the Walter who married Tawa?

I think you would be best to have this on the NZ board first.

What makes you think there would be, family still in Isle of Wight? Although the father of Walter, born 1873, was born Isle of White, his family were in West Ham, London by 1881. It is also where Walter Charles Sydney married and had the children, before coming to NZ.

I still can’t see how you have arrived at ‘Walter charlie Sydney Harris born  around 1800 isle wright’.

Your NZ lot arrived sometime after 1901.

You need to find the father of the 1873 Walter, then there will be the father of that father before you get back to 1800.

What exactly are you looking for?

You should note that Rootschat is not a resource for finding living people. It only deals with deceased relatives and ancestors.

You may like the change your heading to Walter Charles Sidney Harris, (currently, it shows the surname as SHARRIS) as it may attract someone connected to the family.
