Can someone please do a look up for me on Stephen Jones (born Worcestershire in 1933) and Mary Ann Hodgkiss (born Staffordshire in 1835). They emigrated to New Zealand on the "Hereford" in 1879.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Rose

Did they marry each other and if so, did they marry before they emigrated?
