Looking for E S CLARK/E of Dannevirke NZ

Query by Huia

I am trying to find my gg grandfather Edward Saunders Clark/e. I know Edward Saunders Clark/e and his wife Susan...nee Murley came to Dannevirke from Hokitika about 1880. He was a shopkeeper and the name of his shop was E S Clarke Traders. I believe William Gaylor who was married to Sarah Jane Hird also worked there. Sarah Jane was a niece to Edward Saunders Clark/e.
Edward Saunders Clark/e died in 1900 and Susan died 1904. They are both buried in Dannevirke
Any information would be so greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Wow ngairedith, you are amazing.
Until recently Edward Saunders Clark was just a far off name. I am wanting to learn where he came from. On the Mitchelmore family-tree they have him as the illegitimate son of Elizabeth Clark of Batson, Devon, UK.
His first wife Ann Mitchelmore of Churchstow, Devon, is my gg grandmother, who died not long after having my great grandmother Mary Mitchelmore Clark. Four children were born to this marriage, Elizabeth Ann, William, Henry, and Mary. I recently learned that Elizabeth Ann, William and Mary immigrated to NZ. William Clark settled in Ross, Mary married and settled in Reefton till the death of her first husband, then she moved to Taranaki. Elizabeth I have not looked for yet.
On his wedding certificate to his second wife, Susan Murley, he names his father as John Clark, occupation Gardener and his mother as Elizabeth Saunders. Unfortunately he has only named England as his place of birth.
My biggest wish if possible would be to obtain a copy of a photo of him and family. I am so amazed at how fast you replied, thank you, so very much
