ELIZABETH - wife of Joseph LAMBERT married 1851 London, England

Thanks to MarkHassocks I now know the maiden name of my great great grandmother.

Her name was ELIZABETH CAMP (born (baptised 20 Aug) 1820 All Saints, Edmonton, Middlesex, London).

Elizabeth married JOSEPH LAMBERT (born 19 July 1823 in Sprowston, Norfolk) and they had the following children all born in London:

Joseph Lambert born 1851
Denni Lambert born 1852
Elizabeth Lambert born 1855
Louisa Lambert born 1858
Henry Lambert born 1862 - my great grandfather
Henrietta Lambert born 1864

BMD records show that they were married in the St Giles Parish of London in 1851. The page of records shows 4 couples who got married that day; all the females were named Elizabeth (CAMP, DAVIS, HARDY & LANDER).

Looking for Info on Rees, Elizabeth and Phoebe HUGHES - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES to Otago, NEW ZEALAND 1880s

I am trying to fill in some gaps for my cousin on REES HUGHES (born Llansadwrn, Wales 1841) and his wife ELIZABETH nee GRIFFITHS (born about 1844 Merthyr Tydfil). In the ENGLISH and WALES Census of 1881 they are living in Swansea with their daughter Phoebe, born about 1871 Morriston, Swansea.

There's nothing to show the leap from Swansea in 1881 to Central Otago, except a Rees Hughes is on the NZ electoral roll in 1885 at Vinegar Flat.

There is a death registration on NZ BDM for Elizabeth in 1919 and we have attached a photo of the gravestone for Elizabeth at Vinegar Flat, Cambrian's, Central Otago. Husband Rees died 1930 in Dunedin.

Elizabeth's parents were David Griffiths born about 1812 and Grace James born about 1813, both in Merthyr Tydfil .

Rees' parents were Hugh Hughes born about 1812 in Llansawel, Carmarthenshire and Jane Edwards born about 1811 in Llansadwrn.

Questions still to be answered about Rees and Elizabeth

1. Where and when were they married in Wales?

2. When did they arrive in NZ?

3. Why Cambrian's? The Otago Gold Rush was well over.

4. What happened to Phoebe? Lots of questions here depending on whether she came or not.

If you have any information, please let me know. All help will be appreciated.
