Wish to contact any male Dove descendants of George and Sarah Dove. George from New Zealand, Sarah from U.K. 1886 onwards.


Looking for Ringross of New South Wales 1855

A Mary Bourne married Thomas Conry in N.Z. in 1845. Thomas, a solicitor, died in Auckland in 1850. Their first son died at seven months but a daughter was baptized in 1849.

I have not found the death of the daughter, but on 2nd December, 1852 in the paper "New Zealander" the entry shows Mrs. Conry left Auckland by the brig, "Raven" for Sydney. No child is mentioned.

I found a marriage in the New South Wales Records V1855496 101/1855 for Thomas Ringross to Mary A Conry.
The ceremony seems to have been Catholic and Thomas Conry was a Catholic.

I am interested in information.


Mary Hurst, daughter of Stephen and Jane BULLBROOK was baptised 13th May, 1731 at Hurst.

Married to James WALTER OR WALTERS on 5th December, 1770 at the Parish Church, Hurst.

The couple finally settle in Shiplake, Oxfordshire. Some of these Walters' families were still living in this little parish in 1943. The village was Binfield Heath.

George died 1892 aged 50 yrs. His sons had many children including sons so there could be numerous descendants. His daughter, known as Dolly married Robert James BRIGHTWELL. Robert died in Durban in 1945 and Dolly in 1946 while she was living with a daughter, Clare STEENKAMP.
