Thanks. He was my grandfather but died before I was born and no one in the family has knowledge of him except he came from Orange...supposedly. How...why he came to NZ and then married Lucy Anderson are not known.....BRGDS

Again thanks Janilye. The information is much appreciated. The interesting thing would be to know as mentioned above why and how he came to NZ. His children were Gregory (who died as the family story goes by waking in the night covered in blood), Lester (my father), Patrick and Myfanwy (my Aunt). Unfortunatetly as is often the case I have only started to explore my family when my antecedents have died and taken all the family history with them. Again thanks

Be aware when researching James Joseph Norris, that there were two in the same area at the same time. The other James Joseph Norris born Parkes in 1886 and died in Parkes in 1968, His father Benjamin Christopher Norris 1863-1943 and all his syblings were all born and lived in Orange. This family were of no relation having decended from convict from Dublin Richard Norris 1776-1843.

Thank you...I have just been reading your notes on Richard Norris and figured out he was not and antecedent of mine. I suppose it is possible there is a connection in Ireland. I found your journal great reading.....RGDS
