Our maternal family history has taken me on a crazy journey that's no-where near over yet. I knew next no nothing regarding the Bush line when I started but here is quick run-down of what I have found so far.
Abraham Bush (bc 1800 in England)he married Mary Tinker in Kent in 1825. They had 5 children and ended up in New Zealand in 1856. The family line that leads to me is as follows:
Thomas Bush (bc 1827, Surrey, England) married Eliza Clark in 1846 in Surrey, England.
Thomas James Bush (b 1852, Kent, England) married Mary Ann Nathan in 1876 in Wanganui, NZ
Sidney Francis Bush (b 1883, Christchurch, NZ) married Muriel Augusta O'Grady in 1907, NZ
Eric Charles Harold Bush (b 1908, Auckland, NZ) married Mona Adeline Zeppel in 1939, Vic
Eric and Mona (Zeppel) Bush were very well known dancers/actors/singers for theatre company J. C. Williamson's for many years touring Australia and New Zealand. Eric was in a film - with his mate Peter Finch, jumped into radio - he was Jack Davey's producer for many years and got to meet all the stars of the day. Then advertising - involved in ads like "Mr Sheen", "Louie the Fly", "Coca Cola" and many more. Eric's uncle (Sidney's brother) Ernest 'Pirie' Bush made a name for himself in theatre in New Zealand and Australia.
This family history obsession all started when I was about 6 years old when my Mother opened up an old box, filled with family treasures...............
I have alot of information on all the families listed, and would love to hear from you.
