My name is Yvonne June SANTOS (URRY) I have been working hard to try and create a family tree.
The surnames I have been researching are URRY (Wellington area) ODONNELL (Nelson area) GILBERT (Taranaki area) of New Zealand. KILGALLEN (Montreal Canada)
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 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 .
