Family of Thomas Windley and Sarah Ann Oldknow

Journal by ceyes

Thomas Windley and Sarah Ann (Oldknow) came to New Zealand c1862(when they were married) and 1866 (newspaper report on Thomas, and birth of child). They farmed in the Porirua area, north of Wellington, and the family have a school and a street named after them. Link Porirua locations

Before Thomas married Sarah Ann, he fathered Henry Gaskin to Julia Gaskin in c1857. I discovered this through an approach from a descendent of Henry, who contacted me via Genesreunited. Since then another distant relative has posted the record below, with the same information.

I understand Henry married an Amilia Lowe b. 7 Jul 1855, Derbyshire, England, died 1945 in the same area. Henry died on 10/06/1944, also in Debyshire.

Thomas and Sarah Ann were married on 11 April 1862 at St. Paul, Derby.

There is an error in the Marriage Index online through Ancestry. We discovered the error using St Catherines Index.

The correct reference is 7B 571 (which is Thomas' index number on both sources). Ancestry has Sarah Ann's as 7B 573, which is in error, according to St Catherines
