Brick wall tumbling. Chater/Chaytor/Austin/Dalziel

After years of knocking on a brick wall I was recently contacted by a G Grandson of my G Grandmother by her second marriage. I now know she went from England to NZ and remarried there and then on to Australia, she had my grandfather to her first husband and four daughters to her her second husband. I am still trying to find out what happened to my G Grandfather Ralph Chaytor, and where and when he died and one day it may just happen. If anyone out there is researching the Chaytor/Chater line, Durham England, New Zealand and Australia I would love to hear from you.
My G Grandmother was Jane Austin, married Ralph Chaytor at Lanchester Registry Office 25/12/1875, Intention to marry Alexander Dalziel lodged at Christchurch New Zealand on 11 July 1885 while both living in Lincoln NZ but may never have legally married. Arrived in Australia before 1888 and died in Sydney Australia in 1936 (death certificate has Jane Dalziel), Alexander may have died in 1928 but not verified as yet.
Thanks Genes Reunited.
