Hello everyone my name is Jodi Byles, I am 34 years old and live in Auckland, New Zealand. I am posting this message hoping that I can help anyone wanting to know theancestral side of the 'BYLES' bloodline originating from Ipswich, England.
Here is my bloodline:
Nathaniel Byles (1702-1755) married Elizabeth Coveney (1709-1754)
they had a son John Byles (1736-1785) married Margaret Hodge
who had a son John Curtis Byles (1773-1833) married Bridgette Beuzeville
who had a son John Beuzeville Byles (1801-1870) married Martha Soundy (1808-1888)
who had a son John Byles (1833-1916) married Sylvana Sargent (1847-1928)
who had a son Evelyn Moffat Byles who was a twin (1881-1957) married Ivy Farey
who had a son John Godfrey Byles (1926-2001) married Wikitoria Kumeroa (1930- 2010)
who had a son John Godfrey Byles II (1952) married Judaline Ngaronga (1953)
who had 4 daughters Joann Byles (1970), Jasmine Byles (1974), Jodi Byles (me) (1976), Janessa Byles (1978) and 1 son John Godfrey Byles III (1981)
That is my abbreviated bloodline and I am of Maori descent.
My great great grandparents John and Sylvana left England with their nephew Frank Roussel Byles on the ship called the 'Gladstone' in 1881 and settled in Auckland, New Zealand where Frank settled in Whangarei, New Zealand.
If you are part of this bloodline I would love to hear from you wherever in the world you are. Either reply to this post or you can find me on Facebook.
