This website brings
together the information I have put together on the various branches of both
my own and my husband's family. I have been researching our combined
history for over 25 years. It continues to be a work in progress as I
find new information. The information I have gathered has come from a
variety of sources - official documents -Birth, Marriage and Death
Certificates, Wills etc, transcripts of parish records and information from
other family members.
My husband's mother, Josephine
Bowring, came to New Zealand from Manchester as a small child with her
parents Joseph & Lottie (nee Olney) Bowring in the early 1930s. His
father's family came to New Zealand in the 1860s from England.
grandmothers Sarah Holland and Jane Little both came to New Zealand in the
1870s from Ireland. Her two grandfathers Joseph Sillick and James Salisbury
were from England, Cornwall and Dorset respectively. My father's
grandparents with the exception of his mother's father, all came from
Ireland. His maternal grandfather, Christopher Huett came from East Brent in
Somerset in the 1870s.
