Vivian Family Genealogy Forum
My Great-grandfather on my Mother's maternal side of the family was John James Vivian, born in 1840 in St. Ives, Penzance Cornwall. From what I know his brother, whose name eludes me was a guard for Queen Victoria. The height requirement at the time was 6'2", so my great-grandfather was 1" too short. My great-grandfather immigrated to New Zealand in 1860, and was one of the original pioneers in Christchurch New Zealand. There he met my Great-Grandmother Emily Louise Herbert, 35 years his junior.
I have more information for what happened after that, but would like to know more about my great-grandfather. Do you know anything regarding info for John James Vivian?
