George Scott & Elizabeth Vickers, Christchurch, New Zealand
I live in Christchurch, New Zealand. I am particularly interested in reseaching the origin of, and descendants of, George Scott and Elizabeth Vickers who arrived in Christchurch, New Zealand, probably about 1865. Elizabeth's Death Certificate in 1922, states they were married in New Zealand but there is no official record of this marrage. George died in 1877 with the oldest of six children, age eleven. They had two sons, Alfred Vickers Scott who married Grace Woolcock (ex Cornwall) and George Litson Scott who married Beatrice Mills. The daughter's married into the following families - Hull, Ball, Harris, Homes. The information of most interest, that I hope to obtain, is the origin of George and Elizabeth. Information on their Death Certificates does not help much. It is possible that George worked his passage as a ships steward as this is his occupation as shown on the Birth Certificate of their first child Emily, born 1866).
