Yes, Robert Hartley UREN was the youngest of 11 children. Robert was born in Christchurch NZ in 1882,died 8 May,1824. Married Annie Philomena GROVES in 1902, born 1883, died 5 July 1974 Christchurch NZ. They had 2 daughters Stella Madeleine and Florence. There may be more family but this is all I have on this family. Cheers Sue

Jane Susannah Walker was born somewhere in England about 1842
She arrived in New Zealand about 1868 when she was 26, possibly after being in Australia (I have not researched Jane, her parents or arrival)

would it help you in your search to know that Jane next married Edmund SMART (1831-1919) as his 3rd wife, on 24 April 1899 in Christchurch (3 years after the death of her 1st husband, John Ellis Uren).
She was then 57 & Edmund was 67

Edmund was also born in Moulton, Northampton and arrived in NZ Dec 1850 on the RANDOLPH

Jane is buried in Plot 149, Block 32 at Linwood cemetery, Christchurch

by ngairedith on 2011-10-18 16:13:02

sorry, should have added that Jane died 19 November 1918 aged 76

Thanks for that information. Yes I did know about her 3rd marriage and also of her death. Like you I have not researched further.

I had a quick look in Parish records for Cornwall and according to the Parish Records he was Baptised on the 16 Feb 1834, he may have been born a few days or even months before hand.

More information about record 1829603 in the Baptisms database
Day Month 16-Feb
Year 1834
Parish Or Reg District Madron
Forename John Ellis
Surname UREN
Father Forename John
Mother Forename Elizabeth
Residence Tregavara
Father Rank Profession Labourer
Transcriber Notes

This is the site for the above reference


There is also marriage between John Uren and Elizabeth Ellis possibly your John Ellis Uren's parents, 17 Oct 1829 Madron.

happy hunting
