what is it that you want to know PML

by PML on 2019-06-29 06:00:57

We are trying to find and confirm his date of birth as there is no record of him being born anywhere. We are not even convinced that is his actual name!

by ngairedith on 2019-06-29 06:05:03

Edward was born 1861 in Islington, London

The death took place this morning, after a long illness, of Mrs Lawrence, wife of Mr E. Lawrence, of Feilding. Mr and Mrs Lawrence came to New Zealand 30 years ago from England and had resided at Taonui, Rewa and Feilding. To mourn the loss of their mother there are five sons and two daughters. The sons are: Messrs Stanley (Wanganui), Gilbert (Levin), Ralph (Waituna), Victor and Roy (Feilding) and the daughters Mrs Shirley (Palmerston North) and Mabel (Feilding)
Her Headstone reads
In Loving Memory Of
Our Darling Mother
Amy Lawrence
Died May 11th 1922
Aged 62 Years
* very little mention of Edward

Edward was buried Block 3, Row 6 20 Jan 1939, Feilding cemetery as Laurence
* His Obituary read:
Manawatu Standard, 21 Jan 1939
The death of Mr Edward Ernest Lawrence, of Feilding, occurred suddenly yesterday morning, at the age of 78 years. The deceased gentleman, who had complained of pains in his chest, was walking along the footpath in Bailey Street, Feilding, in company with a friend when he apparently suffered a heart attack and collapsed. He passed away almost immediately, before medical aid could be summoned.
Born in England, Mr Lawrence came to New Zealand many years ago and at various times was engaged in farming activities at Taonui, Coal Creek and Rewa prior to coming to Feilding to live in retirement. Mrs Lawrence predeceased her husband some years ago. Deceased leaves four sons and two daughters - Messrs Stanley Lawrence (Wanganui), Victor Lawrence (Feilding), Roy Lawrence (Martinborough), Ralph Lawrence (Rangiwahia) and Mesdames J. Stewart and Shirley (Feilding). The funeral took place today at the Feilding Cemetery.

Have built up a journal on the family but now BDM is down for maintenance. Cannot go much further until they are back online.

You will be the first to know when it's finished (tomorrow I hope) 😊

Children of Amy Lewis Lorigan/Lawrence

Thankyou SO much for that information. Although we have the info on the children etc, we did not have Edward's about his death and the date Amy and James were married.
I shall hope and look out if you come up with anything else and I appreciate you help very much.
