I am looking for info on my dads Grandfather and further back.
He was Ernest Chatterton HARROD in 1888 or 1886 in London. Born to parents William Howard HARROD and Sarah.
He married Daisy Maud SPENCELEY b. 1888 in Greenwich, London in 1907
They had Ronald Ernest HARROD b. 1908
and Gladys Daisy HARROD in 1912. (possibly others, but these are only ones we know about)
They emigrated to NZ sometime after the first World war and lived in and around Auckland area.
Rumour has it (like a zillion other people :-)) that he was a bit naughty with black market goods during WWI and shortly thereafter came to New Zealand where they went under the name of HOWARD, (which I thought was a similar name to HARROD but now see it could have been his dads second name and possibly a family name somewhere... )
If anyone has any further info on them, parents etc... that would be wonderful.
