Looking for information on JOHN OXENHAM born Gisborne New Zealand 1888

Query by ngairedith

Sydenham OXENHAM was born in Somerset, England on 16th October 1854
- he emigrated to New Zealand on the 'INCHINNAN' leaving London on 14th January 1852 arriving into Auckland on the 27th May 1852

- he married Emily TRIMMER on the 18th May 1878 in St John's Napier
- he was a contractor aged 24
- Emily was born on the 21st March 1856 in Howick, Auckland

They had 9 children, all apparently born in Gisborne ..

1879 - 1880 Sydney John Oxenham
- Sydney died aged 10 months

1881 - 1954 Clara Oxenham
- married William MAXWELL in 1911

1883 - 1955 Selena Violet Oxenham
- married Clifton William ROSSER (1880-1966) in 1905

1886 - 1896 Frank Oxenham
- Frank died aged 10

1888 - 1943 John Oxenham
- married Marion Gladys ROBERTSON in 1923
- Marion was born on 23rd May 1891, she died 1975 aged 84
- John died aged 55

1890 - 1967 Mary Ann Oxenham

1892 - ? Sydenham Stanley Oxenham

1894 - 1954 Esther Oxenham

1896 - 1907 David Oxenham
- David died aged 11

There is a John Oxenham buried in the Old Gorge Cemetery in Woodville - buried 28th December 1943 aged 55
This makes a perfect birth year of 1888 as the above John

I want to know if it is in fact the same John

There is also a Marion Gladys Oxenham buried at Woodville, as these are the only two Oxenhams at Woodville (Old Gorge Cemetery) is this perhaps his wife??

Any information on any of these people would be much appreciated

I am in the middle of researching the Robertson family tree of which Marion Gladys Oxenham is a member. Her husband was a John Oxenham so I assume this is the same one buried in the same cemetery. I have found that they had a son Douglas and possibly a son Troy

- research since sjaneo's message reveals that John OXENHAM married Marion Gladys ROBERTSON in 1923

Sydenham died in 1910 aged 56 in Gisborne
Emily died in 1946 aged 90
