Looking for Thomas Marshall of Boxworth, Cambridgeshire and Christchurch, NZ
I am hoping to find any of my Gr Gr Grandfather's family. He was born in Boxworth, Cambridgeshire c1821. Came to New Zealand on the Grasmere in 1854. During the voyage he met an Ann Shaylor, a Ladies Maid from London. They married almost imediately on arrival at Lyttelton and settled in Christchurch. Thomas was a gardener and I believe helped establish Hagley Park. Later he was listed as a Contractor.
He and Ann had six children,
Alexander Elijah b. 1957 Married Annie Richards of Wales.
Alfred b. 1850 Married Clara Jane Davis
Edward b. 1860 Married fanny Maria Davis
Lynda b. 1863 Married John Harrison McMillam
Amelia b. 1865 Married ? Rose
Ellen b. 1869 Married ? Saggers
Alexander and Annie were my gr Grandparents but I know vertually nothing of the others in the family but are very keen to find anyone who may know something of this family.
