Trying to trace Frederic(k) Charles OTTAWAY from Kent, England


My great-grandfather is Federic(k) Charles Ottaway who was born in Kent around 1848 and died in Gisborne, New Zealand on 14 December 1928. He emmigrated to New Zealand around 1863.

Sadly his death certificate and marriage license do not state his father's first name, but his death certficate states he was born in Hungerford, Kent. Hungerford is in Berkshire, so the person providing the details may have meant Headcorn.

I cannot find any records of his journey to New Zealand and without knowing his parent's name cannot progress this research. Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.

Kind regards

Joy Ottaway
