Also the same details as above, these used to alter the surname from KASBEYto CASEBY in all related records.
A letter from Noel J. Ross, 118, Hillside Road, Papatoetoe, Manukau City,New Zealand, dated 17/05/1993, gave the following information. "My greatGrandfather was Samuel Caseby who we believe was born at Newtownard,County Down, Northern Ireland about 1835. They came to New Zealand on the"Conflict" arriving at Lyttleton on 27/01/1876 and settled in theChristchurch area. there were 14 children in the family 10 girls and 4boys, of the 4 boys only one married and had two daughters, the CASEBYname came to an end in New Zealand. The eighth child was my grandmother, Isabella CASEBY. she married Thomas Edward Nixon, on of their daughterswas my mother, Dorothy NIXON who married my father Robert Jardine Ross."

Ronald Caseby managed to contact Noel J. Ross by email on 24/12/1999 and had the following reply;
"Thanks for your e-mail, after the phone call from Kevin of Otahuhu itarrived over the Christmas break. We have had great weather with none ofthe rain predicted with the change to La Nina, time for gardening,watching cricket and activities with grand children. I have spent some ofthe time since your e-mail trying to decipher what has happened to the earlier information I had on the Caseby's. During the year I changed computers to an HP pentium and passed over all thefiles en bloc. Somehow or other I seem to have lost some of the information and cannot read it all, my son thinks it is because I am using Works but I had Works in the old computer. Still working on this. I have not done much with genealogy since we last corresponded. The information that I have on Samuel and Sarah Caseby is from a second cousin in Christchurch and is :- Arrived Lyttelton on "Conflict" 27 January 1876, having left Liverpool 28 October 1875 to Belfast, left 4November 1875. Samuel 38, ploughman, Sarah 37, Mary 17, Margaret 15,Agnes 13, Anna 12, Hugh 9, Isabella (my grandmother) 6, Samuel 3, Sarah1.All from County Down. The eldest daughter arrived Lyttelton on "Rakaia"10 December 1877 - Eliza Jane Caseby, 21 Parlourmaid from Antrimtravelling with her cousin Sarah Jane Wright 20, Housemaid.
The family lived at Irwell, a country district close to Christchurch .Sarah Caseby died 3 August 1904 and was buried at Leeston nearChristchurch. Samuel apparently then went to live with his son Hugh who was farming near Eketahuna in the North Island and died 8 March 1911.Unfortunately Samuels death certificate gives no information on who his mother and father were. Kind Regards, Noel Ross".

Donald Lewis SMITH in New Zealand bought a computer and entered his name in a Search Engine and was led to Ronald Rodger CASEBY's Family Tree Maker site and my Homepage. He contacted me and soon had his mother, Grace Margaret COULTARD, supplying me with information about her maternal ancestors, Samuel CASEBY and Sarah FERGUSON. It transpired that Grace had been the source of her family data to Noel Jardine ROSS. Grace sent me a copy of her Family Tree by Airmail. It arrived in Chichester on 18/02/12000 and the details contained in it are entered into this programme accrediting the source to Donald Leais SMITH, as requested by Grace. The Tree qoutes the following in its introduction for Samuel and Sarah;
"Descendants of Samuel CASEBY and Sarah CASEBY (nee FERGUSON), of Newtownards, Northern Ireland, who sailed from Liverpool, England with 9 children, on the "Conflict", November 4th 1875. They arrived at Lyttleton January 27th 1876. Samuel was listed as a Ploughman. Eliza Jane CASEBY, the eldest of the family came from Antrim, Ireland, as a Parlourmaid, the following year. leaving Greenock, Scotland, September 7th 1877 on the "Rakaia" which arrived December 10th 1877. The CASEBY family settled in Irwell, Canterbury, New Zealand."
