Looking for YARKER from Lancashire to New Zealand

I am researching the Yarker family who immigrated from Lancashire to New Zealand. I would like to hear from anyone related to the Yarkers listed on my old website - Marking Time - been replaced by http://joannewarbymarkingtime.com

It would be interesting to see if any other Yarker families immigrated and if there are any other Yarkers whom I can place on our tree.

My grandmother was Edith Evelyn Maude YARKER and she married Alexander WINTER in New Zealand. The photograph is of Edith Winter nee Yarker and holding my mother Clara (Claire)Winter.

Regards Joanne

Gupwell of New Zealand

I am researching my NZ Winter family. Sarah Elizabeth Winter immigrated to NZ on the Conflict with her parents and siblings. Sarah was 97 at thet ime of her death on the 1st March 1965 and I have a copy of a newspaper article which tells of this. I would like to find out more about Jabez Daniel Gupwell whom Sarah married. He was a farmer in Kitawa. He had died in 1934. Jabez brought a farm at Waihi Road in Pangaroa. Sarah's family recieved a message of condolence from the Prime Minister and Mrs K J Holyoake.

Can anyone please tell me who Jabez's parent were, where he was from. and did he have siblings?

Regards Joanne Warby nee Hooper.
