I am trying to find out information about my grandmother's family. I have very little info myself other than she was born Violet Muriel Ebbett in Ashley Clinton, which is near Woodville. She had one sister who I very vaguely remember we called her Auntie Lizzie so I am assuming her name was Elizabeth and a brother who we called Uncle Norm so I am assuming his name was Norman. I remember stories from my grandmother that the children lived in a different house than their parents on the farm. My grandmother went to Diocesan School in Auckland as a border and as I understand never went back to Ashley Clinton. She married Horace Attwell (was his 2nd wife) and had
(name supplied) in 1936 in Auckland who is my father. I am wondering if she is descended from the same Ebbett family in your web page?

Below is what I have to date. Your help with this family would be appreciated, especially where they were from and were they related prior to marriage (same surname). Also, did they have other children than those below and more spouces required etc ...
