Dingle Family Genealogy Forum
I hope I will be able to offer help to people who are searching the name
as I have alot of information going back to the 1790's
I live in Auckland New Zealand and am descended from William Dingle, the
son of Edward Dingle and Anne Hoskin Rowe. Most of my descendants
originated from Linkinhorne, Northill and Stoke Climsland in Cornwall.
William Dingle arrived in New Zealand in 1897 on the ship Dallam Towers
from Plymouth.( I think?)
My query is about another Dingle who arrived in New Zealand in 1841 as a
survey assistant with the Plymouth Company to subdivide New Plymouth in New
Zealand for settlement. Nearly all other Dingle 's in New Zealand originate
from this early settler. I am trying to trace his origins to see if I am
related to him.
His name is James Dingle and was born in about 1815 or 1817. His New
Zealand marriage certificate states that his parents were Richard Dingle
and a Margaret Hobbs and he was born in Stoke Climsland. ( I think this is
what it says, it is very faint ) I have searched records but can find no
James Dingle or Richard Dingle marrying Margaret Hobbs. I know he came out
on the ship the Sloanes Castle. Other than that I have very little else.
I would be very grateful for any information you could give me or other
I do hope you might be able to help me and I look forward to hearing from
