A search for "Fitzhenry" and "Fitz-Henry" shows that there aren't many of us there.
And if there are any Kiwi Fitzhenrys out there who recognise any of these names and want to tell us their story or would just like to say hello, drop us an email!
I apologise for the layout which isn't particularly special, and when I find out how to put tables into Blogger without the right hand side being cut off, I'll re-do it.
We've got a grand total of:
(Year and registration number, Surname, Given names, Mother's name, Father's name)
|1894/6155||Fitz-Henry||Dorothea Tighe||Isabella||George William|
|1889/14090||Fitz-Henry||Barbara Eleanor||Isabella||William George|
|1872/4148||Fitz Henry||Mary Ellen|
|1983/84456||Fitzhenry||James Joseph Kilmartin||Bridget||-|
|1906/13014||FitzHenry||Gordon Oriel||Alice||Ernest Edward|
|1887/14575||Fitzhenry||William Cooper||Isabella||William George|
The birth of William Cooper Fitzhenry (properly spelt Fitz-Henry) in 1887 to William George and Isabella finally fills in that last child that I was pondering over in the 1911 census. It was this William Cooper Fitz-Henry who was the Chief Engineer and Surveyor of Roads in Rhodesia and featured in the "Out of Africa" series of posts last year.
I'd like to find out who Louisa and William were, with their gallant attempt to populate New Zealand with Fitzhenrys, and wonder if the four children with no attributed parents were also offspring of this couple.
