I believe that that is his father who is my uncle. Arthur Henry is about 58-60 years old, He has two sons - one Duncan and I can't remember the other, Could you check and see if Arthur Sr. wife Geseline better known as GiGi is still alive? thanks

Found a death record for an Arthur Rodney BAYNE born 30 June 1920 died 2003 New Zealand.

The Reed Family Tree by Rosemary Palmer has quite a few BAYNE family members in it, quite possibly connected to yours.

"...Peter Bayne, along with his wife Catherine (nee Anderson) and four sons and twin daughters named Christina and Isabella sailed to Dunedin New Zealand on the barque "Sir Edward Padget" in 1856, eight years after the founding of the Otago colony and settled in a small valley just below the present Methodist Eventide Home at Company Bay, on the Otago Peninsula. The road is now called McTaggart Road, and a clump of bluegums marks the homestead place.

The Bayne's section of land adjoined that of the land belonging to Catherine's brother John Anderson, and to the Macandrew Bay side, Christie's lay. Each section of land was of forty acres and heavily wooded. Christie's established a sawmill and together the three families felled the bush and cleared the land for farming. Christie put in a wooden tram rail down to the water edge and the logs were pulled along the rails and formed into rafts to be taken up to Dunedin for sale. The three families in effect formed themselves into a Company to dispose of the timber and thus gave the bay the name "Company Bay".

The Bayne land extended up the hill towards the spot where eventually Larnach built his castle and on this section a home was made for the family, which was increased by further children born in New Zealand ( possible eleven in all) although there were only three girls, first the twins and later Ruby, who married a Mr. Brownlie, of Fore. Christina married a McTaggart who had a farm close by, a farm which remained in the McTaggard family until recently and Isabella married Kenneth Williamson. ..."

Papers Past has more than 5,000 search results for BAYNE if interested.

Birth, Death & Marriage - Historical Records of New Zealand Click on 'Search' click on 'Deaths' search for his Registration No.2003/24079. A Death Certificate will cost $26.50 and a Death Printout costs $20.40.

Cannot find his birth in New Zealand so presume he emigrated.

No records in Archway - Archives of New Zealand for your Arthur Bayne.

the father, Arthur Rodney BAYNE was born (as allycat said) on 30 June 1920
- he was a Costings Manager and lived at Seaforth Ave in Palmerston North. He died in Willard Rest Home in Palmerston North aged 83 on 10 October 2003. He was cremated at Kelvin Grove

his son Arthur Henry Bayne is aged about 58-60 (as ddow says) which makes a birth year of about 1953 - 1950, making any records hard to find.
We would have to rely on family members, family trees and/or friends to provide his whereabouts ...

His mother's name is Ghesline Bayne whom I think is still alive in New Zealand. she would be at least 90 yrs old. any thing on her?

I used to know an Arthur Bayne who farmed at Aramoana then moved to Evans flat near Lawrence. Then I heard moved to waitahuna. I'm guessing he would be 70 yrs. as far as I'm aware he never married.

Hi :) This is Duncan. Yes, Arthur Bayne from Trinidad is alive and well. Hopefully I got some of the incredibly good looking genes, I'm one of his two sons :)
