I have just joined and I thought I would say hello and mention why I am here. First thing is that I am not religious in any way..... But I am descended from Anglican missionaries who came to New Zealand in 1828 and 1836 as a part of the Church Mission Society. I am writing my family history and I hope to get some incites into there Anglican faith and how it influenced the way they lived there lives and its impact right down to the present generation. My GGG grandparents met whilst working in the Sunday school movement in London in the 1820's. My eight times great grandfather was apparently "Church Warden" in Tytherington. He died in 1696. My family goes back 13 generations to 1560 in the Tytherington area. My family history has a "pivotal couple" in the story. They were born John and Eliza in 1802 and 1803 respectively. John was born around Tytherington and moved to London for work. He led the singing in his church and meet Eliza while they were both working in the Sunday School movement. They married in London and became lay missionary's here in New Zealand in 1836. Kind regards Gavin Bedggood New Zealand.
