Hello Bev - many thanks for your prompt reply. My relationship with Clarence and Eileen Tonks is a little vicarious, but totally fascinating. I am assisting my sister-in-law, Judy McConnell, in tracing her family heritage. We are focusing on the Watty line - namely Hettie Watty (mother of Eileen Tonks, nee Watty). Our research has recently lead us to a genealogy adventure in Wanganui, where we met a delightful 82 year old lady called Gwen Rod (Clarence and Eileen are her Aunt and Uncle). She suggested I try to trace the Tonks family in Wellington and has given me photographs to pass on to Clarence and Eileen's descendants if I manage to find them. Would it be appropriate for me to contact your cousins Ralph and Brian (their sons) so I can give them the photos and maybe learn more about their Mother Eileen. If you wish to contact me direct, my email address is

Looking forward to sharing information with yourself and your cousins.
Kindest regards
Anne Baxter
