Hello ngairedith

My name is Barbara Cairns ( nee Burt)...I live in Hawke's Bay New Zealand. My great great grandparents were George and Charlotte(Tandy)Avery. Their eldest daughter Elizabeth married Charles Franklin Smith Burt. I have a copy of the Avery family tree. George and Charlotte had 17 children...Elizabeth Ann 4/3/1849, Mary 5/8/1850,Charles 19/11/1851, George 20/6/1853, John 5/6/1855, William 1857, Thomas 19/9/1858, Ellen 15/10/1860, Eliza 8/9/1861, Harriet 13/8/1862, Stephen 18/12/1864, Deborah 27/9/1866,Bertha Sarah 2/2/1869, Alfred 1869, James 5/10/1870, Charlotte 1874. These are the names I have listed but a photograph in my possession is of twelve of the siblings and a note naming the five members not in the photo. I have a cousin in Hamilton New Zealand who has more information.

Hi becairns,
Thank you for that information which I can now add to the tree - any further info, stories and photos would be gladly added to give a 'bigger picture' of this branch of the family

I'm Barry Smith, Barbara's Hamilton (NZ) cousin. I have much the same info as Barbara. I have a main interest in locating a link between a George Avery of Enderby company fame who did an amazing voyage with Biscoe (ship "Tula") in 1830. Avery was in the "Lively" an accompanying ship. Barbara's mother claimed that Avery was a member of the family and although I don't doubt her, I cant find any documentary evidence proving the link. Although there are several George Averys in our family tree, I cant find one with a link. Biscoe ended up in Australia for a while. One George Avery (b. 1808) went to Australia - his birth date would fit the facts but that is all. Do you have any info which would help?

Hi Barry,
Thanks for your message
That is very interesting and will need a fair bit of research - will contact you when (if) I find anything (and vice versa I hope) :)

Thanks, Ngaire,
The Biscoe/Avery story is quite interesting. If you are interested I'll send you a resume of their journey - it has Australian connections. Please don't spend too much time on it on my account - I've tried unsuccessfully. I can't seem to find anything from the Enderby end as he seemed to have vanished after the voyage.
