Hunter & Boyd of Ballyeaston

Post by Anonymous » 10 Dec 2003, 10:11

About 1804 my Great Great Grandmother was born at Old Castle Ballyeaston Antrim. About 1825 she married my Great Great grandfather John Hunter also at Ballyeaston. At present I have managed to track the births of 3 of their sons all listed as at Ballteaston. John Hunter b. about 1826, Samuel Hunter about 1831 and Robert Hunter about 1840. Samuel is my Great Grandfather, he and Robert both came to New Zealand,worked as goldminers, married and had families. Samuel came to NZ in 1861 and Robert a little later. I think Samuel gold mined in Victoria Australia prior coming to NZ. I would like to make contact with any other members of this family.
