Hi my name is melinda cottle ,I,m from gisborne nz .My dads name is rodger cottle his dad was noel harold cottle originaly from sydney australia. We dont know alot about my grand fathers past only that his dad was harold cottle & his wife was valerie collins my dad only knows she was a sorprano singer & harold was a govt auditor in sydney they had 2 boys my grandad noel & his brother norman. My dad says that he thinks his father noel was known as rupert for a nick name.The boys were brought up in neutral bay ,sydney until the age of 13 / 14 , But valerie had passed away & harold left the boys for another women i think , Thats why my grandfather noel was such a hard man he never would talk about his childhod.The boys were sent to gisborne nz to stay with there grandparents, My grandad noel then went to a catholic school dad thinks Campion or old boys til the age of 15/16 then he went to sacred heart college he was a very good sportsman in handball, cricket etc.He finally moved to a little country town up the coast in nz called tolaga bay & met Te raukura alias Lovey Noanoa & married had 3 kids my dad rodger , raymond & valerie . I hope this means somthing to you ,I,d love to be able to find out more for my dad if we are both talking about the same people, My mum started to look into the cottle family tree but we,ve lost here since & cant find the paper work. My grandfather Noel passed away going on 4yrs ago now he was 91,
