My gg grandmother was Ellen NOYCE b 3 Apr 1842. In 1862 she married Mathew WHEELER and emigrated in the 1870s to New Zealand, settling in Gebbies Valley near Christchurch.
I'm very interested in Ellen's family in Wiltshire/Hampshire. But, in a little church in Gebbies Pass is a plaque to one Charles Henry NOYCE who died in WWI and it is the relationship between him and my Ellen that intrigues me. There are so few NOYCEs in the world and Gebbies Pass is very remote.
Any one else looking for NOYCEs in NZ??
Thanks for your time,
