Emiline was the mother of Edith White b.1885 - this is all that is known of her at this time. I am looking for her partner or husband surname White who was the father of Edith

Does anyone know of a Edith White who married Samuel Peck jnr in 1905/6 - maybe in Lower Hutt - but some of the family were in Woodville during this era so that is a possibility
I am trying to find who her parents were thereby tracing her back to Reuben King as it is said he was her grandfather

I have been concentrating my research on Samuel Peck 1875-1946
but he had 3 younger brothers and I would like information on them
if anyone knows anything

They were:
HENRY Peck b.1883 married Violet LAWRENCE d.1971

LEN (probably Leonard) Peck b.1886 married Ida NELSON

JACK Peck b.1889 d.1959 Apparently Jack did not marry


This request is also under WHITE, EDITH of TAITA NZ

I need help to find some information on my brick wall - my grandmother Edith Peck (nee White)

She only died 50 years ago yet I cannot find anything as simple as her parents or siblings even though I can find lots of information on her (I believe to be) grandfather REUBEN KING born 1831

If anyone thinks they can help here is what I have so far:

Edith Peck - nee White was born in Lower Hutt NZ in 1885
- She married Samuel Peck jnr in 1905 and had 4 children
Frances Emmeline

She died in 1958 and is buried in Taita Cemetery
