Harry Ranston was born in Keighley, Yorkshire, England and his name was Harry Ramsbottom. He went to a theological college in Manchester and then emigrated to New Zealand. Here he changed his name to Harry Ranston.

Harry had several brothers and sisters:- Annie, Frank, Emma, Lily, Maude, Abraham and Joe - all born in Keighley. Joe also emigrated to NZ.

Harry's father was William Ramsbottom and his mother was called Hannah.

Maude (Harry's sister) was my husband's grandmother. She was born in 1891 and was in the Carl Rosa opera company.

Anyone know anythng about any of these people - I would love to hear from them
