In reply to Betty - your Edward was the son of Henry Colyer and Mary Easterby both born in Erith, Kent. Henry was the son of John and Elizabeth. Henry is buried in Lymm in Cheshire, England. You will find Mary and most of Edward's siblings in the 1880 census on the LDS site. The eldest brother Henry was in New Zealand at the time. Please feel free to contact me for more information.
