Hi Ngaire, I am a descendant of Ellen Edna Kyra Nesbit. I have her death date as 25 Nov 1962, Panmure, Auckland, New Zealand. I'm puzzled as to why Isabella Maria Margaret is also referred to as Isabella Maria Matilda, maybe you can shed some light on that for me. In recent google activity I see a Terry Taylor has a lot of information regarding the Diamanti/Diamante line. Do you have any information about the Nesbit line? Looking foward to hearing from you.
