Looking for Thomas Marshall of Boxworth, Cambridgeshire and Christchurch, NZ

I am hoping to find any of my Gr Gr Grandfather's family. He was born in Boxworth, Cambridgeshire c1821. Came to New Zealand on the Grasmere in 1854. During the voyage he met an Ann Shaylor, a Ladies Maid from London. They married almost imediately on arrival at Lyttelton and settled in Christchurch. Thomas was a gardener and I believe helped establish Hagley Park. Later he was listed as a Contractor.

He and Ann had six children,

Alexander Elijah b. 1957 Married Annie Richards of Wales.
Alfred b. 1850 Married Clara Jane Davis
Edward b. 1860 Married fanny Maria Davis
Lynda b. 1863 Married John Harrison McMillam
Amelia b. 1865 Married ? Rose
Ellen b. 1869 Married ? Saggers

Alexander and Annie were my gr Grandparents but I know vertually nothing of the others in the family but are very keen to find anyone who may know something of this family.

Sarah Stinchcombe daughter of Daniel Stinchcombe

I am hoping to find Sarah's family. I have a copy of her second marriage certificate wher she gives Daniel STINCHCOMBE as her father.

Sarah was married twice 1) George WALTER who died in April 1837
2) George NIPPRESS married in 1839.

She had eight children by George WALTER and three to George NIPPRESS. She and George Walter farmed at Littleton Drew, Wiltshire.
Sarah inherited the Farm after George's death and she and George Nippress continued to farm there intil arround 1871 when they passed the farm to their son also George Nippress. Sarah and George N. moved to Nettlton.

What I would really like to know is the connection between Sarah and Daniel Stinchcombe and the rest of the Stinchcommbe family.

Looking for Descendants of William DYER of Nottingham to NZ

The DYER family that I am seeking originally came from Leistershire and moved to Orston, a village near Nottingham. William was born there in c1819 and bacame a Master carpenter. He and his wife, Mary Dorothy plus their five children came to New Zealand aboard the 'Captian Cook' arriving on the 5th Sept 1863.

They settled at Governers Bay, Bank Peninsula Their second son, Thomas married Louisa Jane FIELD 12th May 1882. At one stage he was partner in a Butcher Shop in Lyttelton with a Mr Owens. They took part in a ballot for land at Waikakahi in South Canterbury and moved there about 1895. The farm named 'Beckford' is still in the family.

Thomas and Louisa Jane were my great grandparents but we know little of the rest of the Family that came to New Zealand.
Can anyone help

The DYER family who came to New Zealand 1863

I am hoping to find anyone that is connected with this family both in Uk and New Zealand.
William and his wife Mary Dorothy nee Boyes they were from Nottingham.
William was born in 1815 at Orston and Mary at Radcliffe in 1831.They sailed on the 'Captian Cook' with five children, Mary, John, Thomas, Mahala, and William, who died at sea. Three other children were born after their arrival in New Zealand.
William was a Carpenter and had an older sister Mahala, who was a schol teacher. He had other brothers and sisters including John who is also thought to have come to New Zealand.
Thomas, William's midle child was my gr. grandfather. He started out as a carpenter became a Butcher and on marrying my gr grandmother he took up farming.
I would very like to hear of any history of William's siblings and in New Zealand about or from any of Thomas's siblings.

George WALTER of Littleton Drew, Wiltshire.

George WALTER farmed at Littleton Drew on the Wilts/Gloucs. border He died on the 14th April 1837. His wife was Sarah [unknown] They hs the following children, Louisa Jane, Sarah Ann, Charles, Elizabeth, Henry,Mary and Georgiana Diana. Louisa Jane and Henry came to New Zealand on the 'Charlotte Jane' in 1850, Charles married Mary Ann BEAK and ran a Dairy Farn outside of London for some years, mary married a George RAYNOR, school teacher, she died young and her two girls were sent to New Zealand for Louisa Jane to bring up.

You will think from all of this I know everything but I would love to know what happened to the rest of the family, where George came from before Littleton Drew I have a idea it was a place called Box in Wiltshire and what was Sarah's name before she married. She came fron Biddestone, and what happened to the other members of the family.

The other name that is associated with the family is NIPPRESS.

NIPPRESS Henry 1822 to 1851

I have been looking to find Henry for years He married my 2x greatgrandmother, Louisa Jane WALTER, at Wapley and Coddrington Gloucestershire in July 1850. At the beginning of September of 1850 they sailed for New Zealand on the "Charlotte Jane" arriving on the 16th December 1850. Henry was to manage land purchased by Lady Emily Bathurst. Sadly he died of Thyphoid on the 7th April 1851.
Sadly we can find nothing of him or wich family he came from. Any help would be gratefully recieved.
