Hello Ngaire

I have as follows, working from the NZBDM Index of identifiable records. There are clashes with other children born to a contemporaneous "John & Elizabeth" which makes me cautious about who belongs to Elisabeth Wilson.

At least two of the names on your list do not belong to this family, and you have one missing. Dates extrapolated.

Ann DICK: b 05 Jun 1878 does not belong to this family as she does not fit in chronologically (next child only 6 months later).

Margaret Cook DICK: born 30 Dec 1878 NZBDM 1879/; m. Green Island Presbyterian Church, Dunedin, 09 Nov 1899; d. 07 Oct 1939; buried Anderson's Bay. 1911 Electoral Roll: Bruce Electorate, resident Kaitangata.

- Five children in NZBDM up to 1910: Elizabeth (24 Jan 1901); Janet (18 Sep 1902); Margaret Cook (22 Oct 1903); Henrietta Cook (17 Aug 1906); Agnes Janet (03 Jan 1910); Stillborn child (29 May 1920).

William Walker DICK: (I had not previously included him until I saw the last child's name): b. 01 Oct 1880; m. (1) Eliza Mary BOOTH 24 Jun 1903; m. (2) Alice BOOTH 1937 (div. 1939/40) d. 6 Jan 1946; bur Waikumete.

Annie Shaw DICK: born 27 Aug 1882; not married; d. Auckland 03 Oct 1945 buried Waikaraka Park.

Alexander Clark DICK: b. 30 May 1885; m. 26 Aug 1908 Alice Edith TERRY (abt 1888 - 26 Feb 1957) d. 12 Dec 1946; buried Kaitangata. 2 Children known before 1910.

Elizabeth Wilson Clark DICK: 09 Apr 1887; m. 02 Jun 1915 Charles Elliott Emery WORSLEY (13 Aug 1889 - 12 Aug 1959); d. 02 Jul 1953; bur Waikaraka Cemetery, Auckland

John Shaw DICK: b. 27 May 1889; m. 21 Dec 1920 Selina Jane LOMEY (21 Dec 1902 - 13 Jun 1968); d. 03 Jan 1971; bur. Orowaiti.

Janet Priscilla DICK: b. 14 Feb 1892; m. 02 Aug 1916 Benjamin Lawrence/Norris MARTIS (11 Feb 1890 - 13 Apr 1974); d. 25 Feb 1966; bur Kelvin Grove.

Harriet Salter DICK: Not part of this family: b. 13 Mar 1892 to Randolph Douglas DICK and Elizabeth HARRIS. Also chronology does not work (born only 28 days after Janet).

Mary DICK: I have seen no personal evidence to show that Elisabeth Wilson CLARK was her mother, so have listed her only tentatively. If she belongs, b. 01 Apr 1900; m. 18 Jan 1922 Sidney John MELLISH (02 Nov 1888 - 07 May 1961); d. 22 Jun 1977. Buried Featherstone. NOTE: NZBDM shows a 1981 death registration, which probably means that the original record has been changed (usually to hide details such as legitimacy, etc.) and is no longer available for view.

For me: Do you have the birth/death details for John DICK (abt 1850 - ) please? I would most appreciate it. Thank you.

Cheers
Robert

Hi, I am researching this family, I am abit confused about the children. Is Ann born 1878 not part of this family at all. I dont have any copies of BDM certificates but believe John Dick is buried in Hawera and died 1930. The Dick family is one of the hardest to find.

Thanks

Hi Rose,

Oops! Don't often look in here!

They are certainly a messy family to find, sort and get to grips with.

If you want a copy of my database on the family, ask: robert (dot) phillips (at) xtra (dot) co (dot) nz. Not guaranteed, but I qualify doubts.

Neither Ann nor Harriet Salter are part of this family. I have no supporting evidence for Mary because another John and Elizabeth were also producing children at the same time, so I have her as "tentative".

John DICK: born Kilwinning, Ayrshire 1848/1849, died 9 Aug 1930; buried 12 Aug 1930 Hawera General Presbyterian Cemetery.

Cheers
Robert
