Thanks for that lead will follow it up. The birth date for Robert is correct, 13th July and there is some doubt re his year of birth. Was either 1889 or 1890, but could not confirm as no record of his birth recorded in Clarendon, SA. Records I've found state that the two children both took the Appleton name and came to New Zealand. Thanks B

Have to assume that there was no marriage to Jones, however there is a story that Grandfather Robert came to NZ with an uncle Arthur. His marriage in 1913 states his mother is Hannah and father was Henry Appleton? Hannah had a son in 1874 named Henry Hilton Appleton The marriage to Shipway is correct. Hannah died in 1927 and is buried in Clarendon SA.
