BAILEYS from TITCHMARSH
One of my great grandmothers was Sarah Scotney b. 1838 in Southwick England.The story is that she was travelling to New Zealand(or Australia) and met John Bailey from Titchmarsh Northamptonshire England in Adelaide Australia.They were married 1/10/1859 at the Wesleyan Chapel,Kongarilla,Adelaide Australia.
They returned to England and then emigrated to N.Z. with the rest of the Bailey brothers and their families.John Bailey died in Auckland N.Z.5/5/1865.Sarah was with child.(Harriet Adelaide)Two houses and a section were left to Sarah,also a section from the Bailey estate at Paparoa.(Although no-one seems to know what happened to that)
John Wilson(one of my great grandfathers) who had met John Bailey and Sarah Scotney on the same ship where they met, married Sarah 24/4/1866 Auckland N.Z.
John and Sarah Wilson had 8 more children.
Edit; According to the birth and marriage certs.Sarah was the illegitimate daughter of Mary b.1817 daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth.
