Descendants of Joannis Blackwell 1804

What I have been told about at this present stage.
Joannis (John) Blackwell born 1804 in England died 1889 Southampton, married Annae Fraser of Lovatt in 1842 in Alverstoke Isle of Wight.
Children Edwardus White Blackwell born 1843 Portsea. Rodrick F Blackwell born 1847 Portsmouth. Then I have Anna Elizabetha Blackwell born in 1845 in Portsea but with a fathers name as Guliemi Blackwell (William) maybe Joannis brother not sure at all on that one . Hannah Sophia Blackwell born 1848 in Portsea. (She is my Great Gran Mother).
Hannah married Jan Van Englebert Masch born in Holland and died in Portsmouth in about 1878. Hannah then moved to New Zealand with her three daughters. Gertude Annie Marie Masch, Florence Beatrice Sophia Masch and my Gran mother Adelina Hildred Maud Masch. Would love to swap information on this family.

Looking for Daniel Romano David's Family

Im looking for Daniel Romano Davids family. He was born in Italy before moving to New Zealand he may have a daughter living in Australia or New Zealand. Daniel died around 1995 in Wellington any help would be great. He has two daughters one called Jasmine (is oldest in her 20s the other called Chantelle is 19).
Just an update on Daniel, I have found his grave in Mangere Cemetery in Auckland. Also in the plot was Dennis Philo David which we assume is his father. Any information on his living family would be greatfully appricated.

This McGregor has disappeared.

I am looking for a Donald Gordon McGregor born about 1864 possibly in New Zealand and was a farmer in Oamaru. My granmother Adeline Hildred Maud Masch was born in the Isle of Wight 1878, in 1895 she married a James Mitchell Glover in Napier. He died in 1908. In 1914 she named Donald Gordon McGregor on my fathers birth certificate. He was 50 in the year 1914 but her name was listed as Fanny Louisa McGregor I can find no record of a marriage. Also can not find a birth certificate for Donald. In 1916 she marries a David Gordon using Fanny Louisa Glover as her name nee Blackwell which is her mothers maiden name. Im thinking that because of the time he maybe had a connection to the war maybe didnt come back. As she was known as a widow moved away when she became pregant. I cannot seem to find anything for Donald saying he exsisted except the mention on my fathers birth certificate which had a caviet over it. Any help would be wonderful. Many thanks.
