My grandfater, Ernest James CHARTERIS was a New Zealander who came on a working holiday to Australia where he Married RUBY HANSON and my father James Seddon CHARTERIS was born in Kalgoorlie, returning to NZ when he was 3 months old after they won 42 guineas on Blue Spek at the Melbourne Cup. They also had Arthur, Bruce and Floss.

Dad returned to Australia in 1926 and married Angela May GLASS and i am their fourth child, so I'm Australian. We are having a family reunion at easter in NZ so trying to get as far back in the family tree as possible.


Have got as far back as James Charteris born 1786 who married Helen Bell. I am stuck at this point.

Ernest James (1870-1926) & Ruby Elizabeth Grace CHARTERIS (1885-1944) also had Walter Bruce Charteris born 10 November 1910 in NZ
- he died in 1983
- is he the Bruce you were referring to?
