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).

Be aware of "facts" ------- a journey to find lineage for HENRY LUCE d. May 1687 Tisbury, Massachusetts

This was to be another branch (the LUCE connection) of my wife's family to be completed from NZ via USA to UK.

This was what I had - I always start with JEREMIAH CROWELL NORTON as he is the link between NZ & USA ancestry.

WILLIAM born 1681 Tisbury; married ANNE CROSBY
DAVID born 1683 Tisbury; married ELIZABETH BEASE (PEASE)
JOSIAH born 1685; married SARAH ALLEN
SAMUEL born 1667

I then started looking for Henry's parents.

NOW HERE IS WHERE I FOUND THAT I RAN INTO "FACTS"

1. According to many internet ancestry sites - Henry Luce was born 1644 Horton/Gloucester/Bristol, Gloucestershire, England and that his parents were ISRAEL LUCE (b. 9 Oct 1605 Horton, Gloucestershire, England) and REMEMBER MUNSON (b. 16 Mar 1604/1605 Horton, Gloucestershire, England or Rattlesden, Suffolk, England)

2. REMEMBER MUNSON has been given as the child of John MUNSON and Elizabeth SPARKE.

3. I started looking into the family of John and Elizabeth. What I found was parish records for children born to them and in every case they were born in Rattlesden. Eldest one born 1595 (Elizabeth) and the youngest 1612 Thomas. No record of Remember but that's not unusual.

4. The distance between Rattlesden and Horton is just about 250 km (150 miles). This was a huge distance in those days. No reason I can find to state a child of John and Elizabeth Munson was born in the Gloucestershire area.

5. Examining further - Rattlesden was a Puritan stronghold so why would Israel Luce marry Remember in Horton in 1627 when her family lived in East Anglia where usually the bride would have been married.

6. No evidence I can find that Henry Luce was born 1644 or in Gloucestershire except what somebody gave to the LDS. I actually found a Parish record of a Henry Luce that would fit just as easily as the one being presented. Henry LUCE (christened 27 Dec 1642 Great Yarmouth, Norfolk). A much closer distance to Rattlesden.

This has taught me to be aware of "facts" as presented on sites.

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.
