Hello again Adam -

Here's what I have on the Edward line - if you want to have the rest of the family that I have got so far maybe I should post it to you as it is rather large and might not make too much sense not in 'tree' form! At present it is very much in 'draft' form so you might have a bit of a struggle! Anyway, it goes back to 1750s on the Daniell side and then back to early 1600's on the Allen side. [Thomas Daniell having married an Allen descendant in the 1750s].

I find it all quite intriguing and would love to hear more about your side, arsonic and all! I can give you some history of the Cornish connection, a family that became one of the three most notable families in the country in their time. I am currently trying to put meat on the bones as it were, ie who they were, what they did, etc. and of course your info. is as interesting as well. I wonder what wedding Edward was coming home to?

Right, here it is -

Ralph Allen Daniell married Elizabeth Mason 22/7/1784, Truro. RAD born 19 August 1762
They had 15 (or 18) children.
[I can list these if you want or they'll be in the post if you prefer].
One, Son, Edward b 10/11/1802 (Truro), christened 10/3/1803 (Truro)
Married Julia Penwith Laurance (Lawrance?) daughter of Edward Laurance RN 19/11/1831 Falmouth.
Emigrated to New Zealand 1839/40?
They had four children:
Edward, Lawrence, Juliette and Ralph Allen.
?Lawrence b 1835 married Isabella ? - no issue ?
?Juliette born 1842 married Hugh Deane, had three daughters?
?Ralph Allen born 1845 married Mary Imlay. Issue?

Edward born 1832, christened 13/10/132 Feock
died 17 June 1873 at Wanganui New Zealand
married Ida (ADA) Groves 1858
Percy Edward Daniell
b 1868 Ballarat, Victoria
d. 1950 Palmerston North NZ
= 20 December 1888
Mary McDonell, dau of James and Annie nee Cameron
b 1865 Parewanui, NZ
Percy Dennis Daniell
b 1 October 1896 at Scotts Ferry, Rangitikei
d. 19 May 1990 Lower Hutt, New Zealand
= 30 January 1932
Elizabeth G Fitzgerald, dau of Joseph and Ester Alice
nee Taylor
Megan Ruth Daniell
b 27 February 1935 Wellington
m 6 May 1961
= Bruce Mansell

This information is taken from a sketchy family tree I found in the Truro Records Office, but have found a number of mistakes with regards other information it contains so am not too sure how correct this is. There was no mention who had drawn it up or deposited it - but Megan Ruth Daniell is the latest (and possibly still living?) name given and presume that it was her attempt at tracing the family. She shows Edward (seniors) brothers and sisters, but no issue, and no definite dates.

This was the lady that I was going to try and trace.

Over to you!!!
