Fantastic to hear from you Jane.
Thank you for your reply, and I'm sorry for your loss.
My husbands family is descended from Ann (nee Derrom ) Kelly.
She was born in York, Canada in 1814. What a well traveled family! Her parents are the big mystery, as well as a few others in the family, esp those who went to Caracas.
We know that her mother was Mary (nee Winder) Lucas and her father was Richard. We have a copy of their marriage Banns from 1812 or 13. They all died in NZ as well as several other Derrom's. I have quite a bit of info about other descendants from the NZ clan. Love to share.
