Hi

I'm a descendant of Mathew and Isabella via Elizabeth Ann Fitton who married Walter Haycock. My grandmother was Ivy Elizabeth Butler, nee Haycock.

I have some information from John Alexander Christie's book, based on his research. While there may be some discrepancies, as some dates clash in births and deaths of listed children I have the following:

James Fitton born 24 July 1873 Little River, died 23 July 1947

Joseph Arthur Fitton born 22 December 1890 Beaconsfield, Manawatu, died 4 July 1961.

Margaret Eleanor Fitton born 18 July 1881, Beaconsfield, died 24 May 1967.

Hope this helps.

More from John Christie's book:

George Fitton b 22 May 1885, little River, died 23 Dec 1885 Fielding and buried in Fielding cemetery.

Matthew Fitton born 27 June 1883, died 27 June 1883.

Annie Fitton born 27 Jan 1887 Beaconsfield, died 9 Feb 1887, died at Beaconsfield and buried on the farm.

Isabell Fitton born 22 December 1887, Beaconsfield, died 5 Feb 1888, at Beaconsfield and buried on the farm.

To begin with I thought these dates clashed, but it is possible she could have had another child in the same year. Poor woman!

And more:

Charles Fitton 14 April 1808, died 20 December 1886 Governors Bay Canterbury. Charles is shown on the Electoral Roll of 1853 as being a quarryman of Hemingford, governors Bay.

I have a copy of a letter written to Isabella in 1886 by her aunt, soon after Jessie and George died of diphtheria.

Perhaps I could send some reports via email, and scan any relevant info you might like?

Regards
Rose
