I dont know anything about William cant find a thing on when he arrived or his death. He married Sophia Anna (or her name could be the other way around)Warburton in 1862 They had already had one son Thomas Francis born under his mothers maiden name in 1859. Have not tracked any other children. I know Thomas moved to Nelson for a long time and Married Miriam Jane Collier 1863-1888.They had 2 Children Emily Louise and Robert Thomas. With the death of his first wife he married again Mary Jane Allen. Same initials that was confusing to deal with. Had another son William Francis. It has been really difficult to track this family.. Thomas was an upholsterer. I cant find any info on Sophia shes a bit of a mystery all i know is she arrived aged 16 with her mother Mary. I think they came from around Birmingham, England
Edmund married Winifred O,Shaughnessy 1813-1861 Her father was John. Not sure if thats the way their name was spelt. A relative thought that the premier of Australia in the 1800s was her father, but the dates dont fit so it could be her brother? That does fit, Edmund and Winifred had 7 children, Mary-Ann ( My line)James, Dennis, Thomas, Edward, John, Micheal. Mary Ann married Joseph Mcgee in 1854, not sure if the marriage survived or what happened, Mary Ann applied for a pension in 1896 in Dargaville and again in 1899 in Mangawhare. At some stage Mary Ann moved to Auckland and lived with her daughter Mary Josephine Robinson where she died in 1914.From the wises directory I have the Robinsons living at 63 Franklin Rd Ponsonby in 1914 in the house was Mary , Mary Ann, Edmund James , Thomas also a Albt Wltr Robinson which I presume was the head of the house a Albert Walter Robinson. In the wises directory of 1919 it is only Mary living there. I would love to know what happen in the missing years. Also if there are many descendants around to see if they have old photos.
James was on the Ship Rattlesnake arriving in Russell i think in 1838 in his company were his wife Anne (nee McCartney)1808-april 1889 3 sons Joseph (my line)1831-1901, Richard 1835-1916 and Owen-Curran 1837-1920. They traveled to an area that was named Auckland on their arrival. They were on the ship Anna Watson that arrived 3 days after the ship the Platina. The very first settlers in those two ships in Auckland harbour.
I would love to have more info on James and his sons. I cannot find anything on Owen Curran McGee just that he had a large family. I would love some more photos. I only have one Of Richard and his bride that was taken in Australia at some stage.
