Sorry Jean cannot help you with William Caskey Croy.I am decended from James Peace Croy who came to New Zealand about 1868? His brother William Corston Croy (ploughman) came to New Zealand in 1863 on the ship David G Fleming.

Thanks for your response Merv.There must have been family ties between the Croy and Peace families at some stage for my Great Great Grandfather to have been given Peace as a second name.

Graeme.

Hi, Marcena.
According to the 1841 census Robert and Mary had a James Croy aged 75 years living with them.However as Mary's maiden name was also Croy I do not know whether James was the father of Robert or Mary. James Croy was christened on 21 May 1764. Until the parentage question is sorted out I cannot go back further with any certainty.

Regards
Graeme.
