Hi Totara,
Alfred Southee was born in Taita, Lower Hutt on 1st March 1856
- he was the 2nd child of William Southee and Elizabeth Mary Daysh.

His older sister Esther Jane Southee was born in 1854 in Taita. She married George Gaskin, they settled in Carterton and had 14 children.

Alfred's grandparents, John & Sophia (nee Sharpe) Southee sailed to New Zealand on the LADY NUGENT in 1840, Alfred's father William was 10 years old at the time

Alfred changed the spelling of the name from Southee to Southey.
He married Rosa Burling in 1882 and they settled in the Wairarapa, around the Tinui/Castlepoint areas.
Alfred and Rosa had (at least) 11 children and his branch of the tree can be viewed here:

Alfred's father died when he was 15 months old. His mother Elizabeth Daysh, 'Betsy' remarried to John Rayner in 1862 at the Christ Church Taita and they had 10 children. One son, Thomas Rayner married Annie Harris, daughter of Edward Harris and Mary Ann Ings-Daysh, whose parents John Ings-Daysh and Eliabeth Clark were early settlers of Taita and who had 14 children that married into the names of Cooper, Harris, Tannahill, Buck, McEwen, Russell, Mabey, Hirst, Hollis, Oxley, Swafford and many other 'old' settlers of the Hutt and Wairarapa
