Thanks Val.

I didn't know Mary Ann was Julia's sister.

Some of those dates are wrong according to NZ BDM.

Death 19 Jun 1887/239 Wagg Julia 62Y

Death 11 Mar 1917/923 Wagg Mary Ann 87Y

Thanks Val.

Mr Berry.

MARRIAGES
WAGG - CRANE.-July 5, at the residence of Mr. Berry, Wakapuaka, Mr David Wagg, of Richmond, to Miss Julia Crane, late of Hackney, London.

I'm puzzled by the baptisms in post #3. I stared browsing the 654 images but gave up.

I also can't confirm arrival.
