Seeking WALKER arrived NEW ZEALAND 190?
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 Mary Jane 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)? When did the family arrive in NZ? Were there other children on the ship or were more born in NZ? My father's brother David Corinthic WALKER (apparently named after the ship he was born aboard)married Mary (don't know maiden name) and had 3 children: Anne (born 1951, died 1970 of diabetes), Ruth (born 1952) (married Keith IRVINE), 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. Ivan WALKER married and had ? children, of whom I only know Noel(ene)TAYLOR (born abt 1932) (married to David TAYLOR) who has 4 daughters and 1 son, lives in Auckland NZ. There are also twin cousins of mine, Patricia and Peter WALKER in New Zealand (born abt 1952) but I don't know who their father was- I thought it was Ivan, but I must be wrong! 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!
