Dear ngairedith

Mabel Ivey "May" Benge who is the daughter of Mary Ann Mabey and Edward Benge is my grandmother. She was married to Charles Horrocks (not Herrick). They had 3 sons - Bernard, Jack and Keith. Jack Horrocks was my father born 11 April 1914 in Manaia, Taranaki and died 8 May 1977 in Eltham, Taranaki) and he married Joan Russell Shepard (my mother).

I'm trying to find some more information on Henry Dyson Shepard (Joan Shepard's father). Are you able to help?

Kind regards
