Looking for family blood lines of Thomas Lewis Le Comte, born 1930 or there abouts, Christchurch New Zealand. Thomas Lewis Le Comte married Gwen Jones and together they had five children, Richard, Gay, Peter, David and Simon.
I wish to research my fathers (Thomas Lewis Le Comte) bloodlines going back into the 1800's. I am told the family was one of the first to settle Akoroa in the South Island of New Zealand. Settlement was between 1840 and 1880's with a Henry Le Comte being born in 1881 (not sure if he is connected).
I was told my father was one of 13 children (he and his brother John were identical twins and the last of the thirteen), their mother died giving birth to them and they were adopted or fostered out to a family called Stribling in Christchurch, New Zealand. I am trying therefore to confirm if this information is true, and if so what was my fathers bloodlines are going back with his father, and his fathers father etc.
