Fascinated to find your information about the Hare family, I am coming at this from a completely different direction, having been trying to find George Reginald Maldon Hare (10th child of Walter Robert Hare, son of Walter Maldon Hare). He married my great aunt Andrina Christina Jane Duncan in Wellington NZ in 1940, but after moving around the lower North Island for a number of years, they seemed to disappear off the radar, until I located George's death in 1982, in Wellington. After a lot of searching I have now located his wife's death in Bilinga, Gold Coast, Queensland, in 1972 - she died in an airport motel there of a heart attack, possibly while visiting their son Lawrence Hare, who lives in Brisbane. George had a chequered history, having a horse v. motorcar accident in Wellington at the age of 18, appearing in court for a number of motor vehicle offences, working as a taxi driver, and at one stage as a fisherman in Napier, where he worked briefly for my grandfather (Andrina's brother)who owned a fishing trawler.
Their son Lawrence appears to be an only child, although I have identified two births in the 1940s which carry family names, not sure if they belong to George and Andrina, or some other branch of the family - a Raymond Maldon Hare born Lower Hutt, NZ in 1942, and a Christina Jane Hare born Feilding, NZ, in 1949.
Hope this adds to your tree, and thanks for the info I can add to mine. Fraser
thank you freddo,
I am sure that will be of great help to other researchers too
I will update the above posting asap
All rather fascinating... Currently researching a person whose parents are listed as Victor Maldon Clapp and Laurestina Clapp... Perhaps not surprising that finding a birth certificate is proving a tad difficult...
