hi from south wales uk

I am looking for the decendants of William Mathew Holdsworth I think he emigrated to New Zealand on th 20th 7th 1911 with a wife Minnie(nee Bastow) and son named Chas, he left England and never contacted his family again, I don't know what happened but my father must have thought a lot of him as he named my eldest brother after him, my father passed away in 1967 when I was 23 the 2nd youngest of a large family, in the 1901 sensus William was 16 and lived in Lord Street Southport with my grandparants John and Mary and brothers Maurice and Edward and sisters Annie and Mary, William was an apprentice cabinet maker I am hoping I've got this right as I have been searching for a long time, I found shipping records where a William, wife and son Chas were aboard the steamship Tainui emmigrating to New Zealand, I know this is a long shot but it is worth a try, my father was his brother Edward . Hoping to hear from someone Margaret
