Hi Persey, I've taken a rest from GR for the past few weeks so haven't checked out the info. Elizabeth and the children definitely went to NZ and we have details of all their deaths and where they're buried. When I can get my brain back in gear I'll collate all the info and let you know.


Persephone Report 6 Nov 2010 22:44

Is the info I gave you on Annie Elizabeth correct as her later marrying a Kemp seems to tie in somehow with Liz's information. Maybe the family passed through NZ and Annie was the one that stayed?



Jeanie Report 6 Nov 2010 16:36

sorry I haven't been in touch for ages. I discovered that the "William Henry" being "trailed" is the wrong one. It really knocked the stuffing out of me as I thought we were making such good progress. Anyway, now suspect that our WH left London mid-1910 as a passenger to either Oz or NZ to pave the way for Elizabeth and children to follow him when he'd established himself, and didn't realise she was pregnant. I'll keep you posted

Jeanie - my mother told me one of her great uncles emigrated to Australia, their surname was Kemp. The family came from Devon, and my mother met her great uncle about l922 when he came home on a visit.
Wonder if there is a connection? Mum could not remember his name, and she died in 2008 just before her 99th birthday. so there is no one to ask now.


Jeanie Report 28 Jun 2010 18:41

sounds promising - she was born in June 1898. NZ is definitely to be investigated further because I know that Elizabeth already had rellies there (Flint) and William Henry was in Australia at the time she set sail from London (we use "William Henry" because my father, brother and husband are all Williams!!!)


Persephone Report 28 Jun 2010 15:03

The Annie Elizabeth Quicke - here that married Robert Shipp - married again in 1928 to a Richard Kemp. There is a death for Annie Elizabeth Kemp died 01 Feb 1956 which gives hers age as 57 making birth year abt 1899.
Robert Shipp also remarried in 1937. Annie is buried here in Auckland at Waikumete Cemetery.

Cheers Persey

I'm so grateful for all your help down-under. Annie Elizabeth would have been 15/16 in 1913 so might well have married young - further info on that gratefully received. For some odd reason Elizabeth (Flint) Quick added an "e" to the name for the 1911 census, and my mother's birth certificate (Alice May, the baby left behind in London).


Persephone Report 27 Jun 2010 11:55

If I happen to be on the boards and see anyone wanting info regarding us lot down the bottom of the world - I like to show willing.

Makes a change from my own research from time to time!

Good luck Jeanie

Love Perse xx

Thanks for the reply, I am not connected, just saw your request for help.
Regards, Liz


Jeanie Report 27 Jun 2010 08:57

no, we've not found him on the 1911 census but a cousin in Melbourne has found him in Australia on or around that time. is it too nosey to ask your interest in this family?


Persephone Report 27 Jun 2010 00:42

I have checked out marriage/ death records here in NZ for Quicke (as a surname) and no luck with one exception there is a marriage for
Annie Elizabeth Quicke in 1913 to a Robert Ernest Shipp.

(a ship(p) board romance perchance)

Maybe they moved on from NZ to pastures greener or dustier in OZ.

Thanks for the reply - I had looked under every combination I could think of! Have you found him on the l9ll census - I know the Royal Navy at sea were on the census, as I found my Grandad on a ship in Gibraltar.
Kind regards, Liz


Jeanie Report 26 Jun 2010 23:50

don't worry about spellings etc, you won't find him as a passenger - he was a merchant seaman from the docks of London to Oz/NZ

Liz 47

Liz 47 Report 26 Jun 2010 23:22

I still cannot find William on a passenger list, but will try again, using variant spellings or wildcards.

The Thomas Quick you have is not the right one. I have copies of all their birth certificates and he did not have a middle name. Also, he was born in 1904 so would have almost been too young to marry in 1921.


Jeanie Report 26 Jun 2010 14:34

Many thanks, Liz and Persephone,
these details are amazing. However Elizabeth wasn't "single" - her husband was already in Australia. it's definitely the family I'm looking for so please let me know your connection.
with thanks


Persephone Report 26 Jun 2010 12:46

NZ - William Henry Quick died 1941 aged 75.
Elizabeth (without a middle name) Quick died 1950 aged 73.

Richard Quick married 1935 to Doris Chipman Dowdle
Emily Mary Quick married 1924 to David Roderick
Thomas Philip Quick married 1921 to Ivy Grace Campbell.
No marriage for Annie prior to 1956. Could not find a death for Annie Quick (only for one born after 1911)

If you reckon these are the ones Jeanie I can delve further get full dates and do cemetery searches for you.

Pm and let me know
