Hi, Im searching for information on John Sidney (?Sydney) Chard who was born in 1880 (I think) in Sydney Australia - he came to NZ and married Mary Agnes (Mim) Nally - in Levin in 1909. I'm trying to find when he came to NZ, whether he had any siblings (family rumour has it he was an orphan who maybe had a brother), and who his parents were. Ive managed to track Mim's family from Qld but have hit a stumbling block with with anything further on John Sidney. Their marriage certificate says his father is John Sidney & Mother Evelyn but I can't find a anything on them ... Thanks for your asssistance
