A Samuel Family From Wales

A Samuel Family From Wales

Surnames: Samuel
I am looking for my Great Grand Father's family:
His name was James Samuel (1857-1937) He married Ellen (Deegan) Samuel (1861-1917). They lived in New Zealand and James was a bullock driver.
They had 5 children: William, Thomas James, Mary Ellen, Margaret and John Joseph (Jack)
All I really know is James's Father and Mother were Margaret and Benjamin Samuel and they were from Wales and James had one brother and a sister.

You will need to obtain the marriage cert. to 'prove' this iis the correct father by occupation.

Thank you so much for your reply and help! I have been digging (with the info you gave me) and I have found out that there was a James in that family later on. I am still looking into it. Its very promising. Thank you again.

Regards,

Martha
