WOODLEY family:
I am researching a branch of the Woodley family which includes William and Mary Ann Woodley who arrived at Lyttelton on the ship "Canterbury" on 10 Jan 1864, accompanied by 4 children, one of whom was born on the ship shortly before arrival. The family settled in Canterbury and in 1866 were living at Fernside and later in various parts of South Canterbury. William Woodley was born 18 March 1830 and died 9 Nov 1909 in Temuka.  His wife Mary Ann was probably born in Essex 1836. She died 4 Jan 1926 in Timaru.   Interestingly, her maiden name appears to be recorded as Flory on all UK documents but as Gray on all NZ documents. Anyone with information about, or a connection with this family please contact Betty Enticott.
