My great grandfather, Richard PORT (1824-1905) was born in Co. Derry Ireland and was buried in the Palmerston North City Cemetery in New Zealand.
Richard married Sarah HUGHEY (1838-1880). I don't know when and where.
My grandmother Rachel Elizabeth PORT was born in Taita, Wellington NZ. in 1868. She married James McQueen MURDOCH, born in Scotland 1870. Were they married in Palmerston North?
I know there is a big family of PORT relations around the Manawatu, NZ. However it is Richard and Sarah PORT I'm wanting information about.
I would be interested to hear any anecdotes of how and why Richard and Sarah PORT came to Taita and apparently moved to the Manawatu.
