Charles Dent d. 1909 Chamberlain Settlement, NZ
Posted by: penni Brough (ID *****6209) Date: August 30, 2013 at 09:57:33
  of 18152

Looking for the parents of Charles Dent b. 1827 Nettleton, Lincolnshire, Eng., d. 1909 Chamberlain Settlement, NZ at the home of his son-in-law.

He came to NZ in 1875 on the Duke Of Edinburgh and landed in Lyttleton. He then moved to Arowhenua where he farmed until 1880 and then moved to Charing Cross.

Charles was married to Eliza Caunt 1851 Thorganby or Switderly, Lincolnshire, Eng.

I believe his parents were William Dent and Jane Hill, but would like confirmation.

Charles also had a brother David with whom he lived before marrying Eliza. They are in the 1851 census together.

Any help would be appreciated.
