TARRANT from Beechingstoke, Wiltshire to Wanganui, New Zealand

I have some children that do not belong with the people I have put them with - can you please help

On my tree I have a WILLIAM & MARIA (nee Saywell) TARRANT

The children I know that shouldn't be there, but who I have left there for the time being, are
Leonard Matthew Tarrant b.1871 in Lower Moutere, New Zealand
Lionel Kendall Tarrant b.1875 in Lower Moutere, New Zealand
Ida Blanche Tarrant - b.1876 in Lower Moutere, New Zealand

Child that is in doubt is:
Lily Annie Tarrant b.1877 - d.1963 in Whakatane

I have found that the father of the 3 known children was Henry Alexander Tarrant born 1880 in Lower Moutere, Nelson, NZ
I would like to now if he was related in any way to William Tarrant who was born in Beechingstoke, Wiltshire, England in 1824 (of the above link)

Who was Acacia BARLEY - married Leonard Saywell TARRANT 1920

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
