Home page

The family tree below describes the probable ancestry of Robert Blaymires back to a grandfather, John Blaymires.  Robert was the first of three brothers to leave Eccleshill.   By 1855 he was in New Zealand and owned land at Waitohi (later named Picton).   Robert and Kate had five children, all born at Picton.   After Robert's death, aged 44, in 1871, Kate remarried and Phoebe CREECH became a half sister to the Blaymires family.

Some of the information on this page is from the book: "When They Got There the Cupboard was Bare" by Annette Kerr.
