Seeking WALKER arrived NEW ZEALAND 190?

Journal by KableWalker

My Father Edward Alfred WALKER arrived in NZ from UK between 1905 and 1910 with his Fa: WILLIAM & Mo: Mary Jane nee LAWRENCE. Edward was born in Walsall Staffordshire UK on 16 June 1902 and died in Port Macquarie NSW Australia 1996. Brothers and sisters who also arrived in NZ were: Gladys, Hector Granville, Ivan, Noel, David Corinthic. My GrFa: William WALKER shows in the Parish Register at Ref:6b 182 marriage 1896, page 327 of marriages registered April May and June, page 182. His bride Gertrude LAWRENCE appears at Ref: Walsall 6b 1032 on page 187. Does anyone have anything definite about the WALKERs of Walsall (appearing in Census as of Walsall Foreign in 1871, living at 233 Pleck St)?
I have discovered the arrival of Gertrude and the chldren on the Corinthic in 1906. Several further children were born in Wellington, NZ: Ivan Wilfred (1911), Herbert Constantine (1910). My father's brother David Corinthic WALKER (apparently named after the ship he was born aboard)married Annie Mary DAY and had 3 children: Anne (born 1951, died c.1970 of diabetes), Ruth (born 1952) (married Keith VERNON), two sons Philip and Kevin born in 1980s. and David WALKER who was born about 1955 and is married with 4 children, living in the Sth Island of NZ. Hector WALKER married and had two children, Peter and Patricia (m. Kerse). My cousin Noel(ene)TAYLOR (born 1938) (married to David TAYLOR)is the only child of Ivan Wilfred, but I don't know his wife's name. Noelene has 3 daughters and 1 son, lives in Auckland NZ.
My full name is Margaret Kable WALKER born 2nd February, 1952 (Mo: Coral Rose nee Kable born 17th March 1914, died 4th November 1995 in Port Macquarie, NSW, Australia. She is one of the "notorious" Kables whose ancestor John Henry KABLE helped carry Governor Arthur Philip ashore in Australia in 1788 and was pardoned of his crime of stealing household silver and linen and granted land in Sydney.] He married Susannah HOLMES and had many children who generally populated NSW! My parents weren't very talented at populating anywhere and I inherited this trait- I am an only child with no offspring, so I make family trees easier!
Also, if anyone can show me how I am related to an Alan SIMCOCK/SINCOCK/SIMCOX etc in Auckland, I would be very grateful. I have discovered my fathers aunt, Annie WALKER married an Edmund WHEELDON, produced a daughter, Freda, who married a Fred Simcock in England 1943 and had 2 boys & a girl. Is Alan one of those boys? I met him in 1967, so I know he existed.
