Hello ngairedith, while looking for information on Knights of Lower Hutt I came upon your posting for Ransomes.
Are you aware of a small publication "William and Mary Ann Knight,Lower Hutt 1840-1990"
It contains information about Mary Ann Knight b 1852 , (to the above William and Mary Ann).She died in 1950.She was married in 1875 to Vincent Christopher Ransom and they had 11 children : Ethelbert,Harold,Myrtle,Roland,Arnold,Oswold ,Hinemoa ,Wilfred,Norman,Allan,and Marion Florence.
Maybe these are different people to the ones you are writing about,but there are some similarities.
Also Mary Ann's brother Joseph,(who was my great great grandfather) called his youngest daughter Jane Frethey Knight.
For what its worth I thought I would let you know that.

M. Knight
