Williams/ Pethybridge Family- Australia and New Zealand

I am looking for info on Alfred Williams born 23/7/1887, place unknown. He was married to Mary Jane Pethybridge born 23/12/1891. Mary was born in Mt Morgan QLD Australia, so there is a fair chance that Alfred was also born in Australia. They moved to NZ in 1916 and lived in Auckland. I believe that there are also relatives in Tauranga and recall stories of this part of the family being involved with the local fishing industry.

any help apreciated

Thanks Sharee
