Looking for Norton of Hukerenui NZ
I am a direct descendant of Alice Elizabeth Smith, born 28 March 1882 her Mother was Florence Maud Smith born c 1864 Halstead, Essex England.No father recorded on Alice's birth certificate.
Alice was born before Florence married Edward Rowley on 26 Feb 1885 in the Parsonage of Te Kopuru, they settled in Hukerenui.
Alice married Alfred Nobes 6 January 1898 in Whangarei.Alice had 12 children of which my Father was one. Family names of SMITH, NOBES,ROWLEY, NORTON & LANGMAN were used for birth registrations of her children. I know Alice had later suitors and married John William Langman of Matapouri.
One man whom Alice lived with was Edward Hugh NORTON d. 1963 age 89. Does anyone know anything about his life or children her fathered?
