YEO or COVENEY in New Zealand

I am researching my husband's family tree based around the YEO family, and the COVENEY family. The Yeo's came to NZ from Devonshire about 1872 when John Yeo (or Yaw) emigrated to Southland with his first wife Mary. He later married Alice Jane BULL and had three children: John Sydney, Alice Selina and Arthur Joseph. Arthur later moved to the Hawkes Bay region. The first of the Coveneys to arrive here was James Edwin Coveney about 1877. He married Elizabeth Jane BUTLER from Wexford, Ireland in 1880. Their children were: Mary Jane, Amy, Bertha, Jemima, George Frederick (died as a baby) and James Alfred.

Looking for Moultries of Fife/Aberdeenshire

I am interested in any information about the Moultrie family from Fife, Scotland. My gg-grandparents were George MOULTRIE & Catherine ALLAN. They lived in the village of Saline. George & Catherine had 4 children: William, Christina, Marion & James. James, was my great-grandfather & he was killed during WWI. (George had an earlier marriage to Christian (or Christina) KEIR.) A complicating factor has been the fact that George was illegitimate. His mother, Margaret HUNTER never married. I know his father's name was also George Moultrie. My great-grandfather James married Mary Richardson O'BRIEN from Burghead, Morayshire. They shifted to Aberdeenshire about 1910.
