Hi Terri,
Sorry it took me a while to reply.

These days there may be a Killip or two that isn't related to my family but they would be newcomers to NZ. Essentially my family is the only line that has survived since 1876 when my ancestors arrived in New Zealand. There is a record of another unrelated Killip arriving here in the late 1870's but it was a Mary killip, obviously the Killip name never went any further there.

However, I do believe your family is distantly related to mine. Would need to invetigate further but there was a Bruce Killip who was the son of "Edward Killip", which made him my grandfathers cousin. Edward was one of the KILLIP migrants who came out on the "Jessie Osbourne" 1876. Bruce Killip was a gate keeper for the Auckland harbour board,possibly lived Mt Albert way in Auckland. I know this courtesy of my Uncle Sam who at 86 is still as sharp as a pin.

Edward by the way is buried in Hillsborough cemetary, details of which I can supply.

I have plenty of info on the Killip's who sailed here 1876, and mostly who is who. We have some blank spots but in the main have it sussed.

let me know if you would like more information.
