Can i just question your details about William Brocklebank - married to Frances Hodgman Tyree ( who i just started researching, Thanks for the info!!) I think you may have the wrong William Brocklebank though. I think the Wm B'Bank who died in 1914 age 52, therefore born in 1862, was the William B'Bank that died in the Sept 19 1914 Ralph's Huntly Mine Disaster? His wife - according to her obituary in 1937 - was called Margaret, she was born in England, came to NZ to join her husband in 1889 and had 5 daughters ( names - Eliz, Mabel, Lily and Clara) and 2 sons. Wm and Frances married in 1881 and had kids with different names than these. Thanks! Lisa

The William Brocklebank who died in the Ralph's Mine Disaster in 1914 was my great grandfather. He is buried in Huntly alongside his wife Margaret nee Graham, who died on 19 May, 1937. They did have 5 girls, Elizabeth, Clara, Mabel, Lilly and Linda. They had 2 boys, William and Thomas. William jnr, was also in the mine that day and was the only survivor at the actual blast site. William was the only one of their children born in England. He was born at St Bees Head in Cumbria.
Hope this clarifies things.
Bill Brocklebank
