Looking to fill in some blanks in my family tree. I have:-

married 26 Jun 1867 New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand (source: IGI) Mary Jane GRYLLS (IGI has CRYLLS!) born 1846 New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand. Parents names not yet known for the couple. William COTTIER died aged 65 years and was buried 1905 New Plymouth Cemetery, New Zealand. Details of wife's death/burial not yet known.
Seven (7) Children:-
1. Henry William COTTIER born 10 Feb 1868 New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand died 11 Nov 1947 New Plymouth (source: IGI), buried 1947 aged 79 years New Plymouth Cemetery, New Zealand, married 1895 Priscilla Ida COWLING born 1871 New Plymouth died 1948 New Plymouth, daughter of William COWLING and Mary HAWK.

a) Can anyone find when/where William & Mary COTTIER died or are buried?
b) I have spousal names for two of their children. Can anyone find marriage records for their other five children?
c) When did the COTTIERs and GRYLLs come to New Zealand?

GRYLLS family burial records New Plymouth, New Zealand
A Roll of Honour : Book Collectors mentions a Rev. William GRYLLS, Vicar of Crowen, Cornwall Bequeathed to Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1863. The Grylls family appear to have belonged to Tavistock, Devonshire, where they were found in the reign of Elizabeth. But the name and stock are traceable back to Edward I.
