Hi Pat, I've only just spotted your query, so hope you're still searching. I'm interested in a John (Jack) Lewis who emigrated from Eng. on the ship Rakaia to NZ 1874, with a Frank (Francis) and Emma Lewis and George Lewis aged 7. John was aged 4 so born about 1870. Since then I can find no trace of him and when Frank Lewis died the dth cert states 1 living son, which was Francis Rakaia Lewis, born on the voyage out. His other children were daughters. Francis and Emma were married in Norfolk, England 1873 and I can find no record of any children being born to them previously. So who John and George belonged to I have no idea. The dates for the marriage for John that you have seem to tally, and the name Frank, as well. I'd be interested to hear from you if you think any of the above might fit your research. Thanks, Joan.
