Hi barbaramickle,

I will just add a little more info for Henry & Sarah Baxter in New Zealand
I know you have a fair bit of info on them but as this journal goes straight to the net, with any luck extra info will attract someones attention and they will recognise better who you are looking for:

their known children were:

1878 - 1966 Henry John Baxter
- married Carolie Clara LAUDALL in 1905

1880 - 1903 Arthur Stuart Baxter
- Arthur died aged 23

Henry's sister Mary Ann Baxter was my Gt Grandmother. I am only just getting back to FH. If you don't already have this..outline
Parents were John Baxter (b c1820) and Mary Ann Robinson 1822 to 1859. John Baxter was eldest child of George B and Ann Keisener married 27 Jul 1819. Issue John above, Elizabeth, William, Mary Ann and George.

Back to John. 1st marriage Mary Ann Robinson 29 Dec 1839 St John the Baptist Shoreditch London.
Rebecca Ann 1840. George 1842-1842. John 1843. George (2) 1845. Josiah 1847. Henry 1850. Arthur 1852. Mary Ann 1854.
2nd marriage to ???GRIFFITHS as far as I can tell, Issue Alfred c1859 (stepson maybe?) Fauster [dau] 1864 and Andrew 1867.
There are several variations of Fauster's name eg. Truster, Frushner and Frusner.

If you have been able to find anything else it would be appreciated. I have some anecdotal family recollections from now departed relations.

Thanks for the inquiry. Jane Griffins was the 2nd wife of John,they married 23rd May 1863.Faurster was born 1865 and Andrew 1869.
Not sure about this but I have Benjamin 1725 and Ann Kiesener as the parents.
I haven't done anything much for a long time so hope this helps.

OK thanks for your reply.
A little more info for you.
Re John Baxter's father. He was George Baxter (from their marriage certificate) a currier as was Mary Ann Robinsons father - Jonathan. [They were all curriers so probably associated]
George B can be traced back to Richard Baxter the famous Hymn writer.
Jane Griffiths married John Soloman PAYNE and had 6 children - the last was Alfred Baxter PAYNE...GRO gives mother as BAXTER birth 1858.
After marriage in 1863, Alfred Baxter Payne was included as a son of John Baxter.
GRO gives daughter as FRUSHER Baxter born 1864 and mother as Griffiths. Son Andrew was born 1867. Jane died in 1868 leaving John a widower once again.
A complex web.
