Does anyone know of, or have connection with the family who helped alan loveday and who his mother and father were?

I am a grandaughter of Grace Lydia Ingpen #4. I can give you information on all this family if you are interested.
Grace #9 was only named Grace according to Waipawa birth entry 15 June 1876.
Elizabeth #14 was named Elizabeth May (known as May) according to Woodville birth entry 23 Oct 1884. She died 15 January 1887 age 2 of convulsions according to Woddville death entry registered as May.
I have recently had contact with descendents of George #! and Emily #13.
Very happy to communicate with anyone about these families.
Regards Jan

thankyou Craig for the above info.

I believe that Frederick Kemp 1846-1877 was born Ezekiel KEMP to David and Mary in 1846 in Norfolk and came to NZ as Frederick.
Frederick married Harriet (b.1847) in 1866 in London. Unfortunately I am unable to decipher her maiden name on the documents I have (Fredericks death, births of 2 chn and death of one child). They had two other children from those you mention. Elijah (b.1867/68 london, d.14 March 1879 at Waipawa NZ age 8 years of peritonitis), Willie (b.1869/70 London), Harriet (b.1871/72 London), Elizabeth Schiehallion (b.17 March 1874 at sea registered in Napier NZ, d.1876 NZ age 22 mths), David (b.12 Feb 1875 Waipukurau NZ) and James (b.1876 NZ).

Have you verified that he owned the Belle view Hotel in Lower Hutt? My information says his occupation was farm labourer and bricklayer from when he arrived in NZ until his death and has him living in Waipawa, Waipuurau and possibly Napier but not Wellington. I'm wondering if it was a different LOVEDAY.
Frederick died in New Zealand on 1 March 1877 at age 31 of peritonitis.

Is Alan LOVEDAY still living in London? I have been unable to locate death entries in NZ for either Les or Margaret and note you have dates for them. Am I correct in thinking Alan was their only child and that they emigrated to England with Alan therefore deaths would be there?

I Look forward to further comments from you all.

Regards Jan

Can anyone tell me about Elizabeth Kemp b 1855, I have birth certs for 3 children, Ellen, Elizabeth & William Henry, all born to Elizabeth, no father named on any, but I believe it is a Samuel Burgess, a road overseer based around Kaikora/Waipawa areas at the time the Kemp family arrived in NZ. 1 child was born in Napier in 1880,the other 2 in Wellington in 1878 & 1882. They must have gone to Australia at some stage, as 1 daughter died there in 1889, the other 2 children and Samuel all returned to NZ, and records then showed their names as Burgess rather than Kemp. The daughter that died in Australia (Elizabeth), her death cert noted that her mother was already dead. This means that Elizabeth Kemp must have died between 1882 & 1889, does anyone have any info. I am also unable to find any marriage cert for her and Samuel. They would have been my husband's great grandparents. PLEASE!!!!!
