Laurenson of Tingwall, Shetland, Scotland

Gilbert Laurenson born 10 January 1770 in Tingwall, Shetland, Scotland, married Catherine Omand.

Looking for Gilbert's parents. I don't have much on his father, but his name was James Laurenson born probably about 1740-1750. I have no information on his mother.

Catherine Omand's parents were John Omand and Barbara Clark.

Their descendant James Laurenson (1838-1884) moved to New Zealand and then to Samoa, where he died.

Appreciate any help in locating Gilbert's parents and if he had any siblings.

Frederick and Kate Stockley

Hi,

Looking for any information on Frederick George Stockley and his wife Kate Evelyne Grace Carseldine of New Zealand.

I believe Frederick was born in New Zealand and Kate was born in Queensland, Australia.

Update 20 Dec 2009: Thanks to Allycat...I found alot of useful information about the Carseldine family of Queensland through the Queensland Historical Records. Also found some useful info on the Stockleys in NZ Historical Records. This information led to other findings and I was able to trace both families back to the 1700s. For so many years, this line was difficult for my family to trace, but thanks to Allycat she pointed me in the right direction.

Now I'm searching for any information on Frederick and Kate's children. I have a connection through their daughter, Lynette, who married my uncle Eric Wesche. They lived in Helensville, NZ and are both deceased. Just want to know about Lynette's siblings. I was told that she had a twin brother...don't know his name. I was told she also had other brothers and sisters.

Appreciate any information please.

Thanks for reading,

Sandy

Charles Fruen/Fruean

I am looking for any information on Charles Fruen/Fruean, who is my g.g.g grandfather born about 1810 in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, USA.

According to family folklore, Charles and his two brothers (names ??) were professional shipwrights and whalers in their time. They traveled to South America and the South Pacific and ended up in Samoa, South Pacific, about the 1830s. Charles remained in Samoa while the two brothers returned back to sea, their whereabouts are unknown.

Appreciate any information regarding this family and also the names of his parents and siblings.

Thanks for reading,

Descendant of Julius Schwencke

Hi,

Julius Schwencke is my great great grandfather, and I am just one descendant out of many.

Julius was born 8 Oct, 1830 in Hannover, Germany and died 12 Jan 1887 in Apia, Upolu, Samoa. I descend from his marriage to Peleise Gagae/Nanai Se'e, through their first born son Charles(1863-1918).

His father was Carl/Karl Schwencke born 7 Mar 1797 in Hamburg, Germany and died 7 Jan 1870, Vienna, Austria.

I am searching for Julius's mother. She is the missing link in my research. I would appreciate any information about her.

Also would love to hear from other descendants or relatives of Julius Schwencke. Please feel free to leave a message.

Thanks for reading,

Sandy
