Looking for RUTHERFURD'S in New Zealand

Journal by evergreen

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.

Information about the RUTHERFURD'S for ngairedith who is also a member of familytreecircles.
THOMAS HENRY RUTHERFURD (1869-?) m EDITH KATHLEEN DAGG (1880-1975) in 1900. They had six children:
1. DOROTHY EVELYN RUTHERFURD m HERBERT HOWARTH. No children.
2. LIONEL CYRIL RUTHERFURD m EVA LOUISA JONES. They had six children
3. NORMAN DOUGLAS RUTHERFURD (1905-2002)m MONICA EILEEN JONES (1910-2006). They had three children. (Monica (monny) and Eva Jones were sisters)
4. MARJORIE FLORENCE RUTHERFURD m LEONARD CHARLES EVELYN PRICE. They had seven children.
5. STUART LYNDSAY RUTHERFURD m ELISE MAY GREENWOOD. They had four children.
6. ERIC ALFRED RUTHERFURD m JOAN MARGARET KENNEDY. They had four children also.

Hope this helps.

Hello, you are my uncle Doug's grandchild. I am Ted Price, sixth of Len and Marjorie's seven children. I used to go to Ahiaruhe and stay with Uncle Doug and Aunty Monnie, helping in the milking shed and then taking the milk in churns to the factory by horse and cart. Uncle Doug was best man at my parents' wedding. I can help you with info on John and Charles Rutherfurd if you should contact me. Your father or mother would have to be Kevin, Ian or Jan, who are, of course, my first cousins. I have contact with Charles' g.g. grand-daughter and can fill you in on details when you contact me. Lots more as well. tprice1@westnet.com.au

Hello,
I am writing from Newfoundland, Canada.
It appears that your great grandfather, Thomas Henry Rutherfurd and my grandfather Arthur Edward Rutherfurd were brothers.
My grandfather was a medical doctor who came from the UK to Newfoundland. He married a Caroline Russell who died. They didn't have any children. Years later, he married my grandmother, Agnes Granter, and they had four children: Mary Wilhelmina (my mother), Henry, Evelyn and Victoria May. I can provide more information and I would be interested in learning more about my grandfather Rutherfurd's family. My email address is bartlettl@nl.rogers.com

I have information regarding the PARSONS line, Harriett Quilliame Parsons, she married Charles Rutherfurd in London in 1859. She is buried at Clareville, died 1886, where is he buried? Ada Llewellyn Cooper is buried at Karori. Wellington. I have more information to share... PentonyGraham@xtra.co.nz (Adele)
