Looking for George Charles Davis

Where did he come from? before 1904
Where did he go to? after 1920

What was his real name:?
George Charles Davis is the kings first names: so we guess the first two name MAY be an alias

WHAT do we know about him:?

He was White, most likley English , Australian, New Zealander or Welsh.
He was good carpenter and a bridge builder. He worked for the New Zealand Railways in Napier, and lived in the "Railway Station Yards Napier" most likley in a Mobile Railway Carriage that could be connected to a train and moved to the next work site; siding on a new bridge being built.
He was born about 1870 give or take ten years.

Does any one have history of "Railway workers in New Zealand" during the 1900 thru to 1930.
In particular Families that lived in these mobile communities?

cheers Ross Davis

Looking for my Grand mother & Grand fathers marriage certificate 1904 Wellington New Zealand

All of the birth certificates of the 10 children born from the union say,
"Marriage, was at Wellington March 16th in the year 1904"

But I canot find and marriage cert in the Marriages , birth and deaths office at lower Hutt.
The names I am looking for are George Charles Davis & Amy Hanham.
(I have Amys certifiactes birth & death , they show nothing.)

The names of George charles may be an alias so we may need to look for

"George Davies"; Charles Davies; "George Davis"; "George Charles Davies" The one thing that seems to be certian is the Date "16 th of March 1904"
maybe a search for marrriages on that date?
Can that be done?

can anyone suggest another place a marriage certiface may be stored other than the registery office?

thanks Ross Davis
