BADDILEY, NEWALL, HOLMES and LYMN families NZ, AUST, ENG, Is of Man

Augustus George BADDILEY (AGB 1st) was born in Castle Donnington Leicestershire England 1828 to Maria BADDILEY. Augustus's father is unknown. Who was the father?
Augustus married Margaret BAIRD in South Australia in 1846. They had a son also called Augustus George BADDILEY (AGB 2nd). There are five genrations of men in the family with the same name. Just to confuse us all! The family eventually moved, in 1861, to NZ after a trip back to England from South Australia. Down the line, AGB the 4th married Roma NEWALL daughter of Joseph NEWALL (his father was from Cheshire and mother from the Isle of Man) and Beatrice MILLER (father from Ireland and mother from Bristol England) both from Liverpool England.

AGB the 1st's mother Maria BADDILEY married widower Joseph LYMN in England but after his death came out with her son (to unknown father) and her daughter Annie (to Joseph LYMN) to NZ in 1861.

Maria BADDILEY's daughter, Annie LYMN, married William HOLMES in 1862. He was a ship builder in Devonport Auckland NZ. There grandson, Reginald HOLMES was murdered (infamous Shark Arm Murders case)in Sydney NSW Australia in 1935.

Margaret BADDILEY nee BAIRD went totally off the radar after 1861 so would really like to know what happened to her.

Love to hear from anyone that has family connections, information or photographs to exchange and share of any of the above.

Missing for years Ella Maude HATCH daughter of Charles Davis HATCH Where are you?

Ella Maude HATCH was born in 1908 in Wanganui New Zealand to Charles and Caroline HATCH nee RITCHIE.

She was a bridesmaid at her sister Dorothy's wedding (to Cecil MCPIKE) in 1927 then nothing was heard of her shortly there after. It was thought she was in Auckland NZ.

Whatever happened to her? Did she marry? Have children? What is her story?

Ella HATCH's father Charles, was the son of Robert Loxdale HATCH (origins unknown) and Harriett HICKS of the Napier area NZ and her mother Caroline, daughter of David RITCHIE and Grace LAING from the Dunedin NZ RITCHIE family who immigrated to NZ from Scotland.

Love to hear from anyone with HATCH, RITCHIE, ... family connections that may have answers or additional information/photgraphs.

Looking for the families of James and Adelaide MILLER nee NOBLE in NZ, IRE, ENG

James MILLER was born in IRE and his wife Adelaide NOBLE was born in Bristol England. They married in Liverpool in 1880. They had 6 sons and 5 daughters (maybe more). They immigated to NZ around 1900 -1910 and James was a grocer in Auckland. The names of the children I know are ... Beatrice, Doris, Nora, Mabel, Irene, Harold, Frank, Lesley, Gordon, Alfred and Sydney.

James MILLER died in 1930 and Adelaide in 1942.

What happened to all their sons and daughters? Have any family photo's survived?

Would love to hear from anyone related to share information.
