My paternal grandfather Frederick Henry ADAMS was born at 22 Sherborne Lane, Lyne Regis, Dorsetshire on 10 October 1919.
My parents have his birth certifcate in their possession in Wellington, New Zealand. I am the one interested in the family tree tracing though and I am about to go overseas and plan to visit the area before the year is out.
If people want to contact me directly they can e-mail me on: yvetteadams@yahoo.com
The application number on the certificate is P.A.S.15690/54P
His fathers name was Frederick Henry Adams and his mother Violet Rhoda Adams, formerly COOK.
It is my understanding that Frederick Henry Adams was born in Taradale, New Zealand and was representing NZ in the UK in the first World War when he met Violet.
His rank or profession is listed as Coporal 2nd Canterbury Battalion New Zealand No 4683
My parents also have in their possession the marriage certificate of Frederick Henry Adams and Violet Rhoda Cook.
This application number is: P.A.S.15690/54.F.
In this document Violet's occupation is listed as a laundress.
Fredrick Henry Adams' father's name is given as Frederick Henry Adams also, whose profession was a carpenter. Documents I have found in New Zealand however lead me to believe that Frederick Henry's fathers name was in fact Frederick Charles Adams (according to ship records).
Violet's fathers name is given as William Cook, a general labourer and her mothers name Rhoda Cook.
The marriage took place on 5 August 1919 at the Registers Office at Axminster in the District of Axminster in the Counties of Devon and Dorset.
I would like to hear from anyone who

1) is a relative!
2) has any information related to my ancestors

It is very hard to gain such information from New Zealand.
Yours sincerely

Daniel Bishop (my great-great-great-grandfather) was a carpenter, and was born in Dorsetshire in 1803, his father was John Bishop, a farmer. Daniel married Louisa Coombes in 1827, in St Marys Church, Stoke Abbott. Their first 6 children were all born in Stoke Abbott from 1828 - 1840, and in 1842 the whole family emigrated to New Zealand. I have details of their NZ lives, but would like to hear from anyone who may be able to help me with their earlier life in Dorset, and other possible family contacts of the Bishops. The Dorset Poll Book lists a John Bishop in Milborne, Dewlish, with a wife Ann, at about the right period. If anyone know more about these particular Bishops, I would love to hear from you. I would also dearly love to learn more about the Coombes family - it is likely that they were newcomers to the area, as Louisa was born in Spain. Under what circumstances I have no idea. Mr. Coombes was a tailor. Thank you in anticipation, Marjorie Spicer
