thanks Ngairedith we have checked your information against our tree. We were lucky to find some confirmation of Benjamin Wildey a convict who married Elizabeth Wilson in Hobart Town, Tas. then must have travelled up to NZ & married Catherine Wasen Munro?
My email is [email protected]
now don't laugh but I changed my name last year after my hence the milton.

We need information on Catherine Wasen Munro & Benjamin's parent in UK? and Scotland?

also now it is interesting that he had a brother...Edward Milton Wildey...we would like more on this connection also...who are Edward's relatives/descendents...we realise that there are a few family branches around in NZ & Aust. Our father is William Otto Wildey son of David John & Kathleen Lydia (prev. Katherine McAllister Lyon).

dear Ngairedith, thank you again for all these links. We are very surprised that Kathleen Lydia McAllister Wildey's mother you write, may be a McAllister... I have Kathleen's death certificate and it lists her mother as Esther Burns Lyon on her death certificate and her marriage certificate. her father is James Lyon, Harbour Master we think the father of James Lyon is the George Lyon and his wife is a Catherine McAllister...hence why Kathleen is named McAllister as a middle name...this makes sense.

1. Can you find any information on George Lyon and his descendents? We were always told they were connected to the Queen Mother's family ...Bowes Lyon?

2. We are stumped about how to find out about Benjamin Milton Wildey who as a convict did not name any family connections (in Tasmania documents). Where did he come from in the UK and his siblings and parents?

3. we would like to confirm that Benjamin Milton is the father of Alexander Edward who married Annie Angel Thomas...just to be sure. If Benjamin was a carpenter when and how did the family make money following this time...was it the sons in printing & publishing (Alexander Edward) as they then seemed to be well off and had the large home in Antigua St in Chrishchurch (which later burnt down in the 1900s). We were told that David John married to Kathleen Lydia Wildey was quite well off also but went bankrupt a couple of times before they separated just prior to her death on 4/10/1940.
regards Kathleen

I can confirm that Otto William became William Otto and Married Elsie Winifred D'Arcy in Manly, sydney. David JOhn is his brother, Joan, Constance & Robyn Adair. But we did not know that Joan was named Edward Milton Wildey? this is new to us but we do not have the death certificates etc to confirm this as William & Elsie are now deceased. Can you confirm this with her name?

some of the known children of David & Kitty (not verified): *1st born, Otto William Wildey in Christchurch 1910 - died in Sydney, Australia; *David John Wildey (on August 6 1940, the engagement is announced between Joan Katherine, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. Molan, of Wanganui, and David John, second son of Mrs K. L. Wildey, of Sydney); *Robin Adair Wildey; *Constance Wildey; *Joan Edward Milton Wildey.

Benjamin Milton Wildy spent a lot of time on the goldfields & made absolutely no money there.

What proof is there that Benjamin WILDY , married to Elizabeth Wilson in Australia

is the same person as Benjamin Milton Wildey , [both names have different spelling] married to Catherine Munroe in Dunedin a couple of years later?

We believed that Ben came from Germany , to England to NZ.
I have one photograph of him standing outside his wee house in Caversham. He built it himself.

Hi Ngaire
Re Your records for Mary & Thomas Seal

On NZ BDM search two marriages for John Bond & Lavinia Frelan also John Bond & Lavinia Stubbs were registered in 1891.
Percy Randolph Bond has no connection with Lavinia Frelan or her husband John Bond of Thames. Lavinia had three daughters and one son, William Frederick B1901 who were registered with the surname Bond. The remaining 4 or 5 children on the result list for John Bond & Lavinia search including Percy Rendolph must relate to the other family.

As well as personal knowledge of the Bond children because my father lived with and was raised by his grandmother, at least two members of the Bond family have done research.

Hi I am a descendant of of Sarah and Michael . Thomas Butler and Ada Burns are my grandparents. I understood from my aunt that they met on the boat on their way to NZ and her family were opposed to the marriage.
