NOTES
... thanks to the message from Erin on 3-1-2011, I will attempt to work out the marriages I had mixed up
Erin wrote: .. My grandmother was Fiona Marion MacClure Walker who married Albert Victor King. However my Alberts parents were John Thomas King & Elizabeth Hudson. John Kings parents were Thomas King & Ann Belton. I believe you have the wrong Albert connection in your line ...

** there were 5 Albert Victor King marriages in NZ between 1889-1929
- they were:
1/ - 1889 - Albert Victor King (1858-1937)
- married Alice Elizabeth HOMES (1864-1902)
- they had a son, Lauritz Victor King who died of wounds in France 1916. At that time Albert & Alice lived in Tahunanui, Nelson

2/ - 1904 - Albert Victor King
- Albert REmarried to Jemima ESSON (1867-1945)
- they are buried together Plot 125, Block 007 at Seaview Rd Cemetery, Nelson. Not known where Alice was buried

3/ - 1911 - Albert Victor King (1884-1919)
- married Ann PATTINSON

4/ - 1926 - Albert Victor King (1894-1964)
- married Fiona Marion MacGlure WALKER (1905-1990)

5/ - 1929 - Albert Victor King
- married Emily Clara May HAWKEN (1875-1970)

There were only 3 Albert Victor King born in NZ (which of course means little except there was also only 3 deaths BUT one of them was not born in NZ!!!)
This makes for probable remarriages for some (see above)

The years of their births and parents were:
* 1884 - 1919 Albert Victor King
- son of John William KING & Hester Spicer LOVELL
- married Ann PATTINSON in 1911
ALBERT died aged 34 and buried Plot 026, Block 09 at Wakapuka Cemetery, Nelson

* 1894 - 1964 Albert Victor King
- son of John Thomas KING & Elizabeth HUDSON
ALBERT (we know) married Fiona Marion MacClure WALKER in 1926

* 1890 - ? Albert Victor King
- son of Thomas & Anstay ? KING

AND an Albert Victor King (not registered as born in NZ)
1858 - 1937 (see 1)

any help would be appreciated

My great grandfather is Thomas Spicer Lovell who was born in 1895 in Motueka,New Zealand, he married Hannah Rogers and Mary Ann Blanchard.

I was interested to read that you mentioned that Thomas quote:

[Thomas Spicer Lovell adopted 2 children in Taranaki:
* William Lewis HART in 1882. William was a 'deserted boy' aged about 3 at the time
* Mary Louisa CARR in 1884. Mary was aged 5 at the time]

My mother was a Lovell, her father was Sydney Roy Lovell, one of Thomas Spicer's sons.

I had never heard or read anywhere before that Thomas Spicer had adopted 2 children and I am intrigued and dying to know where you got this information from.

Hope you can enlighten me.

In the Taranaki District Court...
Taranaki Herald, 7 Sep 1882 William Lewis Hart
Taranaki Herald, 22 Sep 1882 Mrs Danahey also applied to adopt him but later withdrew the application and applied to adopt the child of the late Mr Ody at Waitara

Taranaki Herald, 4 July 1884 adoption of Mary Louisa Carr was granted (scroll to end)

by ngairedith on 2014-09-29 03:27:22

by the way, Thomas was born in 1845 in Motueka, not 1895

Thanks so much for the links to the Taranaki Herald. Yes I did put in the wrong year, must have pushed the wrong keys.

I have recently moved to Motueka and as a 3xgreat granddaughter of Benjamin and Hester, I have been trying to work out where they lived. There is enough evidence to suggest that they lived behind High Street on the area that is now known as the Decks Reserve. (I'm happy to share how I worked this out if anyone is interested.) My next task is to find where they had land in the Moutere. Ngairedith - where did you find the birth and death of Esther Lovell 1851-1860? I assume she is likely to be buried in Motueka, but she is not in the main cemetery. I wonder if she is in the Methodist Cemetery on Street.

by figikk on 2016-05-25 05:14:30

There is information I haven't seen before on nzbdm. I have found Esther/Hester. Benjamin and Hester also look as if they may have had and lost another child called William in 1860. Can anyone confirm this from another source?
