New Zealand Eliza Ann Barnett and son John Henry William Barnett. If they did go it would probably bebetween 1871-1873. Eliza and John are in Gloucestershire in1871. Eliza is a widow though no marriage can be found. Husband is also a John Henry William Barnett occ mason, as John’s baptism. Daughter Emily died in 1870. Both GRO index has mmn Sincock. A Eliza Ann Barnett married George Reed 1873 New Zealand. A John Henry William Barnett married in 1896 to Louisa Worthington. Can someone please have a look at the passenger lists.

Thanks ?
 
Hi Julie.

NZ lists are not set up the way Australian ones are. In fact they are a real pain. You virtually have to know the port of arrival and the year or the port of arrival and the vessel to find any list that might have all the passengers on it.

1871 to 1873. NZ BDM can be searched to give the date of the marriage. Voyage will take about 3 months. NZ deaths in BDM don't give a location.

I'm off to the library now so gibbo might have a look before I get back.
 
Hi Julie

Unless I've overlooked something, the only NZ marriage for Reed/Barnett is 1879

NZ BMD:
1879/2741 Eliza Ann Barnett/GeorgeReed

Geoff

EDIT: If that is the case the arrival would be 1871-1879

That fits the possible arrival in 1878.

Im unsure that is the right passenger list?? The passenger lists notes her as single when should have been widowed and should also have a young son with her. Correct me tho please if i am the one wrong :LOL:
There is only a column for single women if widowed she is technically single and she has an 11 year old child with her.eb.jpg

Maybe Eliza's birth but no sign of a marriage to a Barnett only a Mary Jane Sincock marrying a James Barnett in 1869 Redruth.
