Looking for RUTHERFURD'S in New Zealand
I have been looking into my RUTHERFURD family ancestory for a while now and have compiled quite a bit of information. My Great Grandfather THOMAS HENRY RUTHERFURD immigrated to New Zealand from Jedbrugh Scotland sometime between 1890 and 1900 supposedly to work on an Uncle's farm, although this is only here say.
THOMAS HENRY RUTHERFURD married EDITH KATHLEEN DAGG in 1900 when she was 19 and he was 31. They had six children of which my Grandfather NORMAN DOUGLAS RUTHERFURD was the third child.
I have all the information I need on their decendents and also who THOMAS HENRY'S family in Scotland were. What I am looking for is information on any of his family members who also came out to New Zealand, for instance the Uncle he was supposedly working for or with in the Wairarapa. His Uncles names were THOMAS WALTER, CHARLES FERDINAND (wife Harriette Guilliam Parsons whose gravesite is in the Clareville cemetery in Carterton Wairarapa),JOHN, WILLIAM, RICHARD CAPEL, EDWARD, JAMES, and GEORGE RUTHERFURD.
There is also a story, again unsubstanciated, that THOMAS HENRY's brothers came out on the same ship with him. His brothers names were ARTHUR EDWARD, ROBERT CECIL, JAMES EDMUND, and WILLIAM MONTAGN RUTHERFURD. They also had a sister called Evelyn Mary. Their parents were HENRY RUTHERFURD of FAIRNINGTON and MARY WILHELMINA BRUXNER.
If anyone could help with any information on either the Uncles or brothers of THOMAS HENRY RUTHERFURD and what happened to them I would be most appreciative.
