Mary Eliza DALLISON married Matthais Petersen MAI 2/1/1890 and we are interested in where they were married - was it Silverhope near Marton, Rangitikei, New Zealand or was it Feilding??
Mary had five sisters and only two brothers, one who died in Semaphore, South Australia on 18/10/1915 and I don't have any descendants from this line. The other brother Thomas Rought DALLISON had two sons, one died at the age of four and the other William Harold DALLISON had five daughters.
The only other known male member of this family is William DALLISON born or christened 21/3/1802 being the son of William DALLISON and Sarah ALSOPP. No other information has been found to date.
The HART family (Richard b 22/7/1837 and Susan nee Luckham b 22/7/1838) emigrated to New Zealand originally from Devon departing Plymouth in 1879 on "Rakaia" arriving in Wellington on the 9/9/1879 and then travelled north to Foxton.
They sailed on a full-rigger, setting out into the Atlantic and the long journey to the South Pacific. A newspaper account recalls the vovage - "the equator was crossed on the 2nd July and Cape Farewell (New Zealand) on 7th September. The weather throughout was very fine and the winds only moderate. The passengers seemed to have enjoyed themselves very much on the vovage." There were 296 government immigrants on board, 75 for Hawke's Bay and the remainder for Wellington. On 11th September the Evening Post reported "the steamer Stormbird which left for Foxton this morning, took 26 immigrants, ex the "Ruakaia" and the "Tui" left for Wanganui at noon with 14. Tomorrow, 67 others will leave by the "Rotorua" for Napier.
Believe there is some excellent photographs out there of their wedding in Hampshire England on the 24/12/1864 along with some of the early family prints.
Thomas VERRY (b 14/1/1863 Wakefield NZ) d 1/7/1932 at Sanson aged 69 years was buried at Sandon Cemetery. His wife Amelia Mary (nee Knight) b 1870 d 26/8/1946 and buried with him. They had no child but were married at Sanson 21/9/1883.
Can any body help with clarifying Thomas' father's details - Charles VERRY b ? Sherbone, St John, England either 1818 or 1821 d 1/6/1864 after drowning at Wakefield.
They are to celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary on 3rd March 2013 and we as a family are making a party of it on the 23rd March 2013 in Palmerston North New Zealand where they are living. Both are currently in good health and we are very pleased to be sharing this occasion with family and friends.
All family are invited - contact Malcolm - 021 156 2184 or by e-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org
Mary Ann Eliza GIBBS (nee GREEN) born 22/4/1854 London, England and arrived in Sanson aged 17 years old. Believed to have come out to New Zealand and settled in or around the Nelson region. Obviously had family connections in Wakefield Nelson area as she returned there regularly.
She died 3/7/1908 at Nelson and arrived back in Taihape by train (funeral delayed as train running late).
In 1907 she was presented with a Family Bible following work in the Church at Rongotea (Manawatu) before she shifted to Utiku near Taihape where her sons were estalishing sawmills and milling timber.
Husband - John Henry GIBBS born Wakefield Nelson 11/9/1852 and died 3/9/1943.
To assist with full family tree, I am keen to complete this member of our family Harry Herbert STENT (b4/5/1876 d 24/11/1918 Ohingaiti, New Zealand)who was my great Grandfather's (Thomas John LYNDS) younger brother yet registered as a STENT.
My great Grandfather had his name mis-spelt at the time of his wedding ceremony (14/8/1895 "Dacre Ridge" Waitotara South Taranaki, New Zealand) TO LIND. He married Eleanor Agnes PEARSON at her families home.
We do have a considerable amount of detail but are wishing to complete names etc. for a full record.
Any information would be helpful.

Manawatu New Zealand 23 November 1911.
John William HART b 1868 Hull, Yorkshire, England. Believe he died young but this may be wrong.

Alice Beatrice MAI whose mother was Mary Eliza DALLISON (Bulls or known as Rangitikei initially, was born 1890 either Feilding or Pohangina. We have not been able to locate birth date. Alice died 10 December 1966 in Palmerston North and has been uried in Ashhurst Cemetery - Block 10 Plot 3.
Her father - Matthias Petersen MAI born 9/3/1864 and died 20/5/1946.
Her mother - Mary Eliza DALLISON born12/9/1870 and died 8/9/1935.
We are wondering if she was registered as a DALLISON initially. Alice became a missionary in India and then returned to New Zealand to look after her parent before moving to Upper Hutt to house keep for a Mr BENGE.
Parents - William Green b 6/6/1824 and his wife Sarah Hynds (sorry no details). Believe there was a sister to Mary - Alice Sebastian Green.
