Hi. It seems I have some of this family in my tree also.

In researching the BOWICK family, I've discovered that Frances Maud AMADIO born 1879 NZ married William Henry BOWICK.

Small world hey?

For the record - James Hayter should read James Hayter JACKSON.

Emma's first marriage was to John LYNDS and they had four children - the fourth being registered in the name of Harry Herbert STENT instead of LYNDS hence the reason why the LIND / LYNDS / STENT families tend to celebrate family reunions together.

The second union with Charles STENT - they had ten children and after Emma found out that John LYNDS was deceased, she married Charles STENT. They travelled by train from Manawatu to Napier to get married.

re James Jackson

I spent many hours researching James and his name when I added him to the tree and this very interesting read helps (perhaps) to tell the story

a few excerts from that link:

... I have endeavoured to investigate all of the family legends that have existed about the origins of JHJ.
These are some of the notes resulting from my investigations 10 July 2001

... There is no doubt that JHJ lived as, and was called, and died as, James Jackson.

His grave, and death certificate, say simply James Jackson

The mystery of his origins are complicated later on when James Jackson becomes referred to in a New Zealand legal document recording details of the Nelson Packet as James Jackson McKay, and as James Hayter Jackson in other written references. Nevertheless he was writing to the Colonial Secretary in 1840 as James Jackson. He was married in 1843 as James Jackson and all their subsequent children are recorded as Jacksons

He died in August 1877 aged 77 years and therefore was theoretically born between late August 1799 or early August 1800

There has also a familial link with the Putney area

His death certificate states simply - James Jackson birthplace Putney London 1800.

JHJ supposedly kept diaries, there were some 33. Apparently they were scant in detail. We have been unable to locate these diaries. The Picton Museum apparently think the diaries were infact kept by James Jackson junior

The Putney HAYTER family: Was James JACKSON originally known as James HAYTER? Joan Ashford-MARTIN recounted: "I also spoke to a chap many years ago that said JACKSON?s real name was HAYTER and he had only been dubbed JACKSON when he went to sea".

... stories would appear to match up with the birth of a James son of Richard and Ann HAYTER in Putney on the 26th October 1800 - son of Richard HAYTER a labourer and Ann (nee BOULD)

(Note that there was no James JACKSON baptised in Putney around 1800)

The above site is a fascinating read on the origins of James and his name. A HUGE amount of research has gone into it

ps - I added him as James Hayter Jackson, but ??
- you will see his parents are Richard HAYTER & Ann BOULD

you decide after the read
