Does anyone know if there was a special place in Clifton North Island in New Zealand where maybe unwed mothers had their babies in the later 1800's. Any help at all much appreciated.
I am looking to trace John McGinity - he married Sarah Webb in Greymouth New Zealand on 4 June 1872. He was born in 1840 - other than that I have no further information. He would be my great grandfather.
Alice Jane McGinity shown date of birth 21 June 1870 in family bible. No other info shown. Her mother was Sarah Larcombe née Webb who married John McGinty in 1872 previous husband disapeared in 1869 the youngest child from that marriage being born in that year. Originally it was thought she was born in Dunganville on the West Coast of New Zealand but her marriage certificate (Alice) shows Clifton N I. There is another sister Mary Ann McGinty born 1872 that I can find registered, but nothing for Alice. Any help to find her birth or baptism would be gratefully received.
Looking for Bridget O'Reilly who emigrated to New Zealand in 1879 on the Fernglen.She was a witness at her sister's wedding in 1882 in Greymouth in that year and gives her address as Kumara on the West Coast. In New. Zealand.
I am looking to trace John Heenan born Ireland (we think) about 1813 - he married Margaret surname unknown at this stage - (born about 1815 - probably in Ireland; she died in Hokitika Westland new Zealand in 1898. John died in Hokitika Westland New Zealand in 1895. One child we know of - David Alexander Heenan ( 1866 - 1895) I think they lived in Dunganville, Westland New Zealand before moving to Hokitika. They were in the shoe business. Trying to find how they came to NZ - we are fairly certain they came from Liverpool to Melbourne on the 'Morning Light'. Any info greatfully received
I am looking to trace my great great grandfather John Dooling born Ireland 1810, father of Daniel Dooling born 1844 Baltinglass Wicklow ( I think he had a sister Mary who went to Australia)he eventually came to New Zealand where he married Ellen O'Ryelly (born 1858 in Tipperary) Ellen went to New Zealand with her sisters Bridget and Catherine and disembarked either Napier or Nelson. Also trying to find details of her parents William (born 1835 and Ellen Walsh (born 1838. Am also looking for a marriage for John Dooling (in Ireland).
i am trying to find what happened to my great grandfather John McGinity. He married my great grandmother Sarah Larcombe (Webb) in 1872 they gad two children Alice and Mary Ann. From about 1874/5 he seems to have disappeared. They lived on the West Coast of New Zealand. I also cannot find when he came to New. Zealand. Any info at all most Ppreciated.
I am looking for birth details of Laurence N Smith who married Sylvia Catherine Webb in Hatfield NZ in 1967. Sylvia came to NZ on the Rangitiki in 1954. Any info greatly appreciated
I am looking for further information on Margaret Heenan born 1830 in Ireland and who died 1898 in Hokitika New Zealand. She was the wife of John Heenan - they presumably married in Ireland - I would love to know her maiden name, her parents and where they came from. (I have details of their children) John may have come from Offaly. They left Liverpool for Australia on the Morning Star and lived in Australia for a while.
I am looking for Mary Heenan, the daughter of John Heenan (or Heneghan) and Margaret Kelly, she was possibly born in Australia 1848/9. She was the eldest daughter - I have been able to trace all the rest of her brothers and sister - but can find no trace of Mary.
I am also trying to find when the came to NZ - they settled on the West Coast of NZ. If there are any other Heenan family researchers out there I would love to hear from you. One of their children (Martin) was registered under the name Heneghan so Mary could be registered under either name.
