Hi,

I have some information but not a lot if your interested in it.
Samuel George Peck married Joyce Dalgleish. Samuel died 1988 Joyce is still alive. Their childeren are Barry Peck, Gregory Peck, Lawson Peck (deceased), and Jewel Peck. I have all of their children also if you want to add them. Dororthy Peck died around about 1990 in Napier everyone knew her as Dot but I can probably find out a bit more. Richard Peck I know existed but nothing other than that.
Hope that is of some help.
Kind regards

Hi there

I am a direct descendant of William Peck also, daughter of George Ringrose. I had done some research and got as far as Korina. I work with a Peck and it turns out her family has done quite a bit of work on the Peck family tree. I was able to trace William in it and our grandfathers apx 5 generations ago were brothers. Small world.

Hi

I came on these posts by accident and found them very interesting. A few corrections though. Edna Cleary married Thomas Edward Ringrose (my father)and not Thomas Ewen (thats me :))

Gale Ringrose ( Now Taylor) is Gael.

I am interested in compiling a Ringrose family tree and would like to hear from anyone who has some info.

Cheers
