do you have a birth date for the girls ofg?

Thank you for getting back to me. The sister were born in England. Emma was born 1828,Lydia 1836 and Eleanor 1841.
Lydia married Jeochim Heinrick Henning in 1863 in Nz and they came to live in Australia shortly after. Eleanor married William Huson Pay in 1863 also and he had a leather and shoe business in Dunedin. There is a incomplete entry in Ancestry for a Emma Hawes(?) marrying Alexander Maule and a later newspaper entry 1894, for a bankruptcy notice for a Emma Harriet Maule in Wellington.

* There was a Miss Emma Hayes who was a school teacher in and around Otago, moving through the ranks until she was the 'mistress' in Sawyers Bay around 1901. This is the district that is obvious
There was an Emma Hayes who died in Dunedin 8 Aug 1904 aged 39 and is buried in Northern cemetery, Dunedin, but that makes a birth year of around 1865 and she was the daughter of Attiwell & Emma Hayes. This is very possibly school teacher Emma above

* Emma Harriet Hayes married Alexander Moule in 1886 (BDM has his surname as Maude!). They lived in Wellington. Alexander died in Australia. Emma Harriet next married Patrick O'Halloran in 1895 and she died in 1940 aged 84, making a birth year of about 1856

Yes, I did find Emma, daughter of Attiwell and Emma. As you say, all the wrong dates. i hadn't found any death date for Alexander or Emma Harriet so that all new info for me. Maybe she went back to Uk or went to Australia. Thank you for all your help.

FYI
Lithgow Mercury, Mon 24 May 1948
WALLERAWANG
Widespread regret will be express
ed at the death of a very old and
respected resident of Wallerawang
in the person of Mr. Fred Henning.
The late Mr. Henning was born at
Lone Pine, between Wallerawang
and Piper's Flat 78 years ago and
resided in the district all his life.
In his earlier years, he was engag
ed in the carrying business and
carted coke from Rydal and Piper's
Flat to the. Silver King mine, which
was in production at Sunny Corner
at that time. Later, he was engag
ed in carting coal from Wallerawang
collieries to the railway station and
also log drawing from the Wolgan
Valley for use at the Lidsdale saw
mills.
In his younger days, the late Mr.,
Henning was a noted athlete, being
a wonderful axeman, a specialist
with, the squaring axe and a rough-
rider of undoubted ability. Until his
health began to fail he could be. seen
at work with his team of horses in
and around the town and he enjoyed
the confidence and esteerm of all with
whom he came in contact.
Of a retiring nature, he was wide-
ly respected and the sympathy of
all the district Is extended to his
widow, Mrs. Dora Henning, sons
Lewin and Will and stepsons Charles
and James Blewett, who survive him
