Hello Alastair. We are distant cousins through the Garrick family. Your grandfather Henry Osborne Devenish Meares was married to Eva May Garrick. Apart from your father, they had a daughter Bessie born about 1893, who I understand married a Mr McLoughlan of Tauranga, New Zealand and died in 1952. Your grandfather purchased a law firm in Christchurch in 1891 (still going as Meares Williams) and was Mayor of St Albans before they amalgamated with Christchurch City Council. Eva (known as Mary) died in 1893 and I thought that your grandfather had returned to Sydney and possibly remarried. If you would like to contact me I can send you a lovely photo of your grandmother and would be happy to share my Garrick family history with you
