I have a number of 'Kjestrup' individuals listed with links to families I am researching. I think some, if not all, must be related and some are probably siblings. I need help in trying to confirm my thoughts.
This is what I know:
>...James Alexander Kjestrup b. abt 1889 in Masterton, NZ d. 2 Oct 1963 in New Plymouth. He married in 1919 to Effie Mary Hopkins. Effie was b. 24 Aug 1890in Carterton, NZ and d. 1988 in Tauranga. She was the grandaughter of Thomas Wilton & Mary Bird and daughter of Fanny Amelia Wilton & William John Hopkins.
>...Nellie Agnes Kestrup b. 28 Sep 1887 d. 7 Jul 1966 in Dannevirke, NZ. She married Frederick Rufus Wilton b. 18 Dec 1882. Frederick was the grandson of Thomas Wilton & Mary Bird also. His parentes were Thomas Wilotn & Anna Evans.
>...Mary Johanna Kestrup b. 8 May 1895 and d. 28 Feb 1987 in Carterton, NZ. She married Laurie William Wilton. He was born 22 Jun 1895 in Masterton, NZ and d. 27 Oct 1974 in Masterton. He, too, was the grandson of Thomas Wilton & mary Bird and his parents were Robert Wilton and Rhoda Compton. Rhoda was sister to my gt grandmother Charlotte Hooper nee Comtpon.
>...Earl William Kestrup b. 27 Feb 1952 in Masterton, NZ and he married Louise Barbara Mackay b. 6 Aug 1956 in Masterton, NZ.
I hope this might help other researchers as I see there are not allot of researching for this surname - but think there must be strong link to the Wilton- Kestrup - Compton family and would like to see just how this 'lot' comes together.
Best wishes Joanne Warby nee Hooper
