Greetings from New Zealand. We are descendants of Lash connections who emmigrated to New Zealand from Paignton, Devon in 1870. Elizabeth Lash, according to our records was born in 1809, married Thomas Trist in 1830. They had three daugthers, Mary, Susan and Fanny, all born in Paignton Devon. Thomas died on 10 June 1841. Elizabeth emigrated to Guernsey, Channel Islands where she married Thomas Heyward. They emigrated with the three Trist daughters and their own children to Nelson, New Zealand, arriving 19 May 1856. We are descendants of Elizabeth's Brother Joseph Henry who also emigrated at this time. We have family history dating back to mid 1500's and comprehensive history of the Lash connections who came to NZ. Would be great to hear from you, and what country you are enquiring from. Yvonne and Allan Lash Christchurch, New Zealand
