* The David Atchinson, Auckland, New Zealand Family Home Page*

Updated January 28, 2009

I am presently researching the Atchinson, Naylor and Dellow Family Trees.

I am a descendant of William Atchinson, and his second son Harry Ngarie Atchinson. William was born Boston, Lincolnshire, England August 5, 1837. He died April 23, 1923 in Waiuku, Auckland, New Zealand. His second son Harry - ***my Grandfather*** was born in Soo,(now St Saulte Maree), Michigan in 1888. I would be interested to hear from Atchinsons in the United States and Australia as I have family tree details going back to the 1600's of the Lincolnshire, England Atchinsons which is my direct link. I would be interested to find the link between the Atchinsons who lived in Lincolnshire (principally Boston, and Nottingham in the south and the Atchinsons from Northumberland and Durham Counties (Principally Newcastle on Tyne)in the north of England and the link to the United States and Australian Atchinsons. I have made contact with the Northern England Atchinsons but we have not been able to find a common link, other than by name. It appears the name Atchinson originated in Scotland. I am also trying find details of what happened to William's first son Henry and second wife Elizabeth. Henry born in Chorlton, Arwwick, Lancaster, England on October 14, 1860 (his mother Mary Ann died at childbirth) who came out to New Zealand with his second wife Elizabeth to Auckland on the full rigged ship the Matoaka.They are recorded as having landed in Auckland in January 3,1865 but no further records have come to hand whether they died in New Zealand or went back to England or even across to Australia to join a family of Atchinsons in Melbourne, Australia.

The Naylor family - I am also descended from Joseph Naylor and his wife Elizabeth Fox of Kidderminster, Worc, England. Their son Henry Naylor also born in Kidderminster, Worc, England was my Great Grandfather. Henry, along with another brother John came to New Zealand via Canada. ***My Grandmother Gladys Naylor*** - Henry's daughter married Harry Ngarie Atchinson - detailed above. We are presently compiling the Naylor family tree in conjunction with descendants of Henry, John and another brother Charles who also went to Canada. We would be very interested to hear from other descendants of Joseph Naylor, who owned a carpet mill in Kidderminster in the 1800's and was Mayor of the city at one time.We have details of Joseph's other children, along with photographs of their 50th wedding anniversary etc.

The Dellow family - I am also descended from Isaac Dellow and Mary Gapes. Isaac was born in Essex England November 17, 1820; formerly of Bow, Middlesex, England before emmigrating to Canterbury, New Zealand and died June 27, 1890 in Christchurch, New Zealand. My mother Inez Marion Dellow is his great granddaughter. I have extensive details of the Isaac Dellows 965 descendants in New Zealand.
