I am researching the surname of URRY. Winifred Ann Jones URRY who was (my G Grandmother) married John Henry GILBERT. After John's death she married William LOONEY, The Ancestory of the URRY family goes back to Isle of Wight ENGLAND. Edward URRY (My G Grandmother's Father) Immigrated from Isle of Wight - IOW. In 1881 at Fielding NZ Edward married Ann JONES and their daughter Winifred was born the same year. Winifred had a son Llewellyn in Nelson with her partner John ODONNELL. Llewellyn's Grandfather was Tiemi Te PUKE /John ODONNELL (My Paternal GGGrandfather)of Waikawa. Tiemi married Sarah PARKES nee BARKE in Picton .
