Thank you for your interest in my search. My Great Grandfather was very elusive. He has not left any easy clues for me to find, but I will keep searching for Thomas Cook Martin's birthplace.
Everyone on this list is so helpful to researchers like me, who are looking for their ancestors in New Zealand.
Thank you all,
From: John and Sheryl

On the day of your email (was it Wednesday ?), at around 13:30, in passing I
called in to 20 James Road.
It appears to have been subdivided, the original house is still there, being
at the front of the property.
A driveway to the back has gone down the left hand side, with a new house at
the back, being 20A from memory.
I think the original is still # 20.
A resident of # 20 advised they are renting, and moved in only a couple of
months ago. He knew no other details, and being the son (?), he didn't know
who the current owners are.
