Acacia Barley - unknown birth date or place at this time, married Leonard Saywell Tarrant in 1910
Leonard at the time was aged 46 which could (or not) mean that it was a second marriage for him
Acacia is reported to have died in 1976 which was 54 years after Leonard so she may have remarried in that time
Any information on her, her paretns or any children would be appreciated
Albert "HENRY" Strawbridge was killed in action in the Boer War.
He was engaged to be married before he left - do you know her name?
There is a (bad) photo of her you can view by clicking the link under his name
I am looking for any information on Alfred Whitehead.
He was born about 1856 - unknown where
He died on the 20th March 1917 aged 61
He is buried in the HERBERTVILLE CEMETERY
He was married to Mary Jane Petherick
I would also like info on her - she is not buried at Herbertville
Charles Griffiths aged 35, with his wife Mary aged 30, emigrated to New Zealand on the ZELANDIA, arriving in Lyttelton on November 14th 1859
In the Geraldine District (Canterbury) in 1876-77 a Charles Griffiths had freehold Section 8202, 80 acres, at Orari
With them were 3 children
* 14 year old Eliza Griffiths (sister or daughter ?)
* 7 year old Ephraim Griffiths born 14th June 1852 died 1915 in Timaru - he married Emma Beckingham
* 2 year old Asaph Griffiths
I would very much like to know what happened to Eliza and Asaph
their spouses, lives, burial details etc
Cannot find Asaph Griffiths in the New Zealand BDM so he may have changed his name or he may have died at sea during the voyage ...

Who was Emily Mary Ann Poole Phelps Roberts?
She was born between 1848 and 1851
I have her as Emily Mary Ann Poole Phelps
the name Poole is unusual and may be a good hint of her mother
I cannot find the Phelps emigrating to New Zealand, maybe you could help
There was a Edgar Phelps from Carterton killed in WW1 whose parents were Charles and Rose Phelps - he was born 1892
But Carterton is a VERY good place for our Emily to be as she married Eli Strawbridge about 1873 and they had 3 children in Carterton from 1872
Emily had a son, Alfred Roberts prior to her marriage to Eli - don't know if she was married to a Mr Roberts or not, but he is reported to have died in 1871
You can find Emily on a couple of sites but nobody mentions anything about her birth place or parents or where she is buried
Most have her written as though Roberts was her maiden name - I don't believe this is true . . as the name Phelps, or even Pool is more likely and that she was using the married name of Roberts when she married Eli Strawbridge
Charles William Hensman BOULD was born in 1873.
He was a son of Thomas Bould and Georgina Saunders.
