BERRY Family from Caton (?) Lancashire to Auckland, NZ - 1907

Hi, I know just a little bit about my father's fathers side that came from England to settle in NZ back in 1907. My g/father - John Edward 'Ted' Berry was about 15 yrs old when he made the trip on the 'SS Dover" with his parents Edward Thomas 'Ned' and Clara (nee Herrick) Berry and his 8 brothers and sisters. Also when they landed in Auckland there were some family waiting for them but not sure if it was Berry or Herrick family that were already living there. Is there anyone who knows of a Edward Thomas Berry (born abt 1868) and his wife Clara (nee Herrick)(born abt 1867) family that came from Caton (?) or the Lancashire areas. The photo i have added is of the Berry family when living in Auckland as the youngest child (Eva?) was born in Auckland. Also the gentleman on the left top is a brother to either Ned or Clara. Thanks

Looking for any info of Alfred Edward PRIME of Hawera, NZ

My g/father Alfred Prime snr was born around 1869 in either Wales or NZ. He was married to Charlotte Rosanna (nee deMALMANCHE)and they lived in Wellington. Hawera, Levin and Auckland. They had 5 children - Ivy Adeline, Grace, Irene, Josephine (Jo) and Alfred (Alf) jnr. Alfred Prime died in Auckland on May 15th, 1957. Am hoping to find out if he was born in Wales or NZ, the names of his parents and if he had any siblings etc. My late mother and her siblings did not know much about their father but on their mother's side (deMalmanche)they knew plenty!. Thanks if anyone can help. Regards, Judy

Looking for best site/s for passenger lists

I am trying to find the best site for passenger lists of my husband's great great grandparents JOHN and ELIZABETH WALTER and their daughter HANNAH ( who was born abt 1864/65 in Maidstone, Kent - and was aged abt 5 when they sailed out from England for NZ ). I have no idea what ship/vessel they sailed out in or the port of arrival but i think they were based in Wellington. Also there may have been other family members besides John, Elizabeth and Hannah. Hannah married Eric Victor Lundqvist in Wellingon about 1885. Hoping someone may be able to help me finding the best site/s so that i can find the name of the ship they left England in. I have been helped before on family tree circles for my side of the family and was ever so grateful. Thanking you in advance if anyone can help.
Kind Regards, Judy Collins
