Hello, my name is Jocelyn Le Noel (nee de Silva). My great great grandfather was William Park who married Jane Tory (2nd wife) in 1897. According to my records William and Jane's children were:- Eileen Norah born 31/12/1897, Gavin Tory born 28/11/1900, Stanley Nelson born 28/5/1902, Kathleen Irene born 20/7/1910.

Myrie Wanaka Park was my grandmother. Her father was William Edward Park.

I have to hand information of research, dated 1984, conducted by Kathleen Irene Eaton (nee Park), on the Park family. I also have a letter written by Kathleen, dated 17/12/1988, signed by Kathy Eaton. This is contrary to other records which state that Kathleen Eaton died 21/5/1961.

Therefore, it would be appreciated if any one who has further information on the Park family to contact me. email address:- [email protected]
Thank you.

Jocelyn Le Noel

Hello, many thanks for your reply and sorry for taking so long to reply back.

Which part of the Park family are you related.

Kathleen Eaton and Jocelyn Donkin wrote to each other and researching the Park family.

I am researching Robert Stewart Park and have seem to come to a dead end after he married Clara Hannah (Hutton) Hurley. Also, I cannot seem to find where Gavin McIntyre Park and Grace Jane Stobie Park are buried. Do you have any info that you could help with.

Look forward to hearing from You.

Gavin Mcintyre PARK (1823-1903) married Grace Jane STOBIE (1827-1894) (both from Scotland) on 3 April 1848 on board the Philip Laing which left Greenock 23 Nov 1847, arriving Port Chalmers, Otago on 15 April 1848

Grace Jane Park died 24 Oct 1894 aged 67
- she is buried Plot 395, Block 28 at Linwood Cemetery
Gavin McIntyre Park died 4 Sep 1903 in Christchurch aged 79
- he is buried with Grace

... a son, also Gavin Mcintyre Park (born 1886), died in Wellington 10 Jan 1967 aged 80 and was cremated at Karori

Robert Stewart Park is rather more complicated !!
do you know the story???
Clara Hannah had some children with Robert, then she married Charles William Hurley and had a daughter. Charles died in 1883 aged 35. Clara then MARRIED Robert and they had more children. Then Clara had 2 base born children she gave the surname Hurley to ???...
I can research all this and write it up if you want or you tell me what you have so far and what you need

That Gavin Mcintyre Park (1886), is not their son, he is the grandson.He is the son Gavin who was born in 185. Their son Gavin-1851 took off for the goldrush in Alaska in 1898 and then died in Washington State. I have a copy of the birth cert. Infact I have over 600 Park family photos, documents and emails. I do my research with Jocelyn Le Noel. She is the GGG granddaughter of Gavin and Grace and I'm the GG grand of them.

The first two girls of Rob Stew(my nickname- to many roberts) went to live with their grandparents. It was written in a family tree that my great grand father had done. James was a lawyer in Hokitika.

I had asked my mom's cousin(born 1920 in Hokitika) about Rob Stew and she said he was not liked in the family. He was a near do well. Lucy and Charlotte were raised with their grandparents. Lucy, his daughter went to Christchurch and lived with Charlotte(Poppy) Eliza Park Russell, her aunt as a housekeeper. Poppy's husband was a MP and they had 16 children. Lucy was a plumb woman.

My mom's cousin remained friendly with Charlotte Ginders until her death 1968.

The cousin knew nothing about the other 6 kids at all! She never even heard of them. She didn't know anything about young Gavin drowning.

Send me your email and I will send you some files. Who are you researching for?

Hello Ngairedith, Thank you for your reply.I do have some information on Robert Stewart Park and Clara Hannah Hutton. They had four children, Beatrice Lucy, Gavin McIntyre, Charlotte Eliza an Grace Jane.

At what point did Robert and Clara separate after these kids were born?? And why did they separate?? At what age did Lucy and Jane go to live with their Grandparents??

Gavin McIntyre drowned in a boating accident.

I would also like to know where did Charlotte Eliza go to live and with whom??

What happened to their marriage and why did they separate for the 2nd time after having two more kids.

Did Clara have the last two kids to someone else?

What was the actual story behind their relationship. And where did Robert go to after they split up........What kind of work did he do??

To know Robert's life story would be much appreciated and I will be able to put a closure to the mystery.

Many thanks
