thank you very much to JRW45 for this message on 11-5-2011:

... I descend from the Ede family and thought I may be able to fill in a few gaps with Edward and Clara's family.

Some of the latter children I have no data on them.

Margaret Mary born 18 May 1880 and appears to have died 14 Feb 1901 at Sunnyside Asylum. I've still to go to National Archives to view her file to verify this.

Lillian Alice b.15 July 1881 married Ernest Jones and had 10 children.

Ann Elizabeth b.23 Sept 1882 d.7 March 1884

Thomas Edward b. either 22 or 27 Dec 1883 d.1 Apr 1951

Arthur Stephen you have data for this line

Benjamin (John) I think the John was added later in life and his own idea. b. 1 May 1887 m. Bertha Harris. They were a colourful pair who were sometimes in the Court news.

Henry had a twin who was stillborn. 12.April 1889

Alfred James b. 4 April 1890 m. Ada Louise 28 Feb 1920, div. 1941 remarried Janet Irene ? (surname unknown)

Walter Henry b. 28 Aug 1893 m Maud Eva McInnes 9 May 1916 they had 4 children I know about.

Eva Ellen Elizabeth b. 31 Oct 1895

Ruby Clara Amelia b 25 Sept 1897 m. Lawrence Maloney 1917. I have her death date as 2 July 1986 but cannot verify it.

Annie Matilda b.7 Nov 1899 m.1924 to Frank Helmsley and had 5 children I know about

John Ernest b. 1901 m.1930 Mary McGregor and had 3 children I know about

Amy Florence Nightingale b. 1904 I've been told she was also in a mental institution in the Nelson area.

Edward William b.1906

When birth certificates were cheap many years ago I ordered some and a few of them were for Edward's family. It was interesting to see the number of different places given as Clara's birthplace - there were at least 4.

I do have information prior to this going back to 1757 on the Alsop line (Blackbourne, Stilwell, Still, Wright, Ridgebridger, Brewer) and much more on Lilian Alice Ede who married Ernest Jones, my grandparents.

If you have any updates to what I have listed in the previous post please let me know. I understood there were 18 children, I am not sure where Jack fits in however. I have lots of historical stuff on Benjamin Ede from Ashburton where he was a brickmaker (made the bricks for Mt Peel Forest and the Lyttelton rail tunnel)and a farming pioneer. I have photos of him and a number of earlier family members.

I did a lot of work on my family tree in 2004 and have finally got back to it, although it is a retirement project really, end of the year. cheers Bronwen Summers
