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 mariages 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
