Some one in Sydney was after this surname some time back, off another site, was he Roman Catholic please... as think she found her one in a Catholic cemetery! Back in 1800s they divided up cemeteries with church of England. Roman Catholic and Presbyterian just to make it harder for folk to search! Am sure she had a John, but am sure the wife was a different name.. if the same man, think he was in Mount Street Cemetery in Wellington. google it and see who is buried there!! good luck

Thank you so much for your information. John McGinity married my great grandmother in 1872. She was previously married and had 7 children, her name was originally Sarah Webb and married in 1858 when she was 18. She also married John MacFie in 1880 having two children with the last two husbands. John and Sarah had two daughters in 1870 obviously before their marriage and one in 1872. I have checked the Mount Street cemetery records, but the John McGinity was buried in 1860. Her husband was still alive at the time of her other marriages and she does not appear to have divorced him. I am just letting you know these facts so you can see that it is all rather interesting. I thought the John McGinity buried in Wellington may have been the right one being a restauranteur, as the John I have Bren finding info on was a head cook on a ship. Once again very many thanks and if you get a response to the email you mentioned I would be thrilled to hear.
Grateful thanks, Janet
