Paul, all those Langley's are my direct descendants. There does not appear to be a marriage certificate for Peter Langley and Mary Ford. The latter was previously married in 1841 in Melbourne, to Patrick Clifford. They had two daughters, the first called Mary. Patrick died in 1845 and Mary married Peter in either 1848 or 1847. The marriage certificate of Peter L and Mary Murphy bears what appears to be the same signature of the father, as appears on Henry Francis's death certificate (5 weeks old and mother Mary FORD). The informant on his birth certificate was Mary Clifford. You have my email address if you would like further information. Denise Langley :-)

Thank you Gypsy. William Bluett was my direct ancestor and arrived in Wellington in 1841.

Would somebody be kind enough to look up:

What does it say about him on the record?

Also...
