Births in NZ after 1875 will show the birthplace of the parents.

Have you seen the birth cert of Samuel's two youngest children. Might be worth getting them.

If Samuel was the informant then his birthplace should be listed.

A good thought Ian I will keep that in mind for another angle but I suspect the info will come back "Yorkshire" which will not get us any further

John TANFIELD is not emerging from the shadows leaving Thomas & Mary TANFIELD as front-runners.

Here is a photo of granddaughter of Samuel in Auckland about 1954

Not sure how to correct the title below photo it is not Kate

 Nuffin' wrong with casting a search for the mysterious "John" TANFIELD, Signal ... (indeed, the process of elimination plays - or should play -  a big part in properly researching, anything).   :)

My "money" was always on Thomas and Mary, though.    ;D

Nice photo !

Still waiting for the money Lucy .... who is your bookmaker?

For the rest of you
There are three living persons in NZ,  descendants of Samuel,  who have taken Ance$try DNA tests.   (None of them named TANFIELD)   I'm now hoping the UK connection I have recently found may turn up a match of 4th cousins.   Otherwise John becomes again more likely.

Unhappily, had to sack him some time ago.  ;D

(I feel a song coming on ... )

Oh no John ... no John ... no John ... No  ...

I do so wish you the best with your continuing search, Signal.   :)
