Looking for YOUNG family of New Zealand - Thomas and Elizabeth Young
Allen Norman Young born 1920, died in 1942 a casualty of WWII.
Son of Thomas Young and Julia Mary Young (nee King).
Known siblings of Allen: Thomas Joseph Young (b 1911),Leslie John Young, (1913-1995) Colin, Nola and Esma.
Family lived in Manurewa, Auckland, New Zealand.
Father Thomas (Tom) Young's parents Elizabeth and Thomas Young.
Known siblings of father Tom Young: Jane Anne Rowe (Ann Young) 1892-1976,Joseph Henry (Joe)Young 1890-1931, Mary Flannagan (Mary Young), Elizabeth Teward/Barnett (Elizabeth Young) Jack Young, Bill Young.
Elizabeth Teward/Barnett was my great-grandmother. Tom Young and his siblings my great-great-uncles and aunts.
The only record I have found of a Thomas and Elizabeth Young arriving to New Zealand:
Queen of the Mersey
Ship: 1227 Tons
Departed London July 3rd 1862 - arrived Lyttelton October 19th 1862
Young, Thomas 27 Berwickshire Farm Labourer
Young, Elizabeth 21
If this is the right record they probably came from Berwick-On-Tweed in Northumberland, Britain. They had no children when they arrived to New Zealand.

I know it's not unusual for families of that time to have many children over up to a thirty year period or more - but most of these names, excepting the last three make no matches with the family tree as remembered by my grandmother, and no corresponding records to be found such as marriage, death etc. I am taking into consideration middle names, being used as forenames, or "nicknames", or just basic errors (I've already found one above with Joseph Henry). At this time I can't tell and Young is not exactly an easy name to narrow down!
Please contact me if you have any further family tree info or can make any connections.
