Looking for Descendants of William DYER of Nottingham to NZ

Query by EAGHB

The DYER family that I am seeking originally came from Leistershire and moved to Orston, a village near Nottingham. William was born there in c1819 and bacame a Master carpenter. He and his wife, Mary Dorothy plus their five children came to New Zealand aboard the 'Captian Cook' arriving on the 5th Sept 1863.

They settled at Governers Bay, Bank Peninsula Their second son, Thomas married Louisa Jane FIELD 12th May 1882. At one stage he was partner in a Butcher Shop in Lyttelton with a Mr Owens. They took part in a ballot for land at Waikakahi in South Canterbury and moved there about 1895. The farm named 'Beckford' is still in the family.

Thomas and Louisa Jane were my great grandparents but we know little of the rest of the Family that came to New Zealand.
