Doidge ancestry - Bere Ferris, Devon

Hi all,

My great-great-great-grandmother was a Georgina DOIDGE, born on the 22nd June 1852 in Bere Ferris (Beertown), Devon, England, to parents John Hancock DOIDGE and Harriet BAILEY.

I have found probable family links back a couple of generations thanks to but would really like to hear from anyone who may be able to verify some of this information or add to it.

Most of the information that I have about Georgina is from an obituary printed in the local papers here in New Zealand at the time of her death in 1936, but I have been unable to find anything about which ship brought her to NZ, though the
obituary states that she came with her father in the late 1850's via South Africa. If anyone has noticed Georgina or John's names on shipping lists leaving Devon, or have links to this family then I'd love to hear from you.

Kind regards,

Debra Emmett
Hamilton, New Zealand
