Dear Bryan, Hi. Your grandmother's parents were William PICKETT and Emily Ann (maiden surname unknown). As I can't find their marriage record in NSW, perhaps they came from Victoria?

Your grandmother's brothers and sisters were:-

William J. PICKETT born 1861 Gosford
Luke PICKETT 1862~1935 Gosford
Celina PICKETT born 1865 Brisbane Water
Hugh PICKETT born 1873 Brisbane Water
Mark PICKETT born 1875 Brisbane Water
Thomas PICKETT born 1877 Brisbane Water

Wow! Thanks to you both. I've only been at this ancestral thing for a week and information is booming! I had some of the info but big gaps and was at a dead (sorry about the pun!) end with Rachel. Now to recording it all!
Regards and thanks

Oh another connection I forgot. I found a cemetery record at the Mangatera Cemetery, Dannevirke, Hawkes Bay, NZ of Iris Irene PARROTT b c1888, d 21/7/1966, aged 78, widower. From the info I would surmise she may be Augustus Harold Parrott's wife, but no evidence.
Here is URL for search

Hi again Bryan, Actually Augustine's wife was Louisa Warson. Edward's wife was Elizabeth Pearce. Arthur's wife was Maria Bull. Vincent's wife was Josephine Malone. So Iris may not even be of this family, however we will keep searching. James and his wife Rachel are also at that cemetery but where is everyone else? There was quite a tribe

Have you tried here Bryan

If you look here Bryan, you will see link to First Families Search - NZ Society of Genealogists.

I had a look for MCKEOWEN - nil results, but there are quite a few files on PICKETT and PARROT (note spelling). Click on the DETAILS button and you will see a list of names surrounding that person. It helps if you know the in-laws names also as they might be there.
