I am seeking the descendants of this marriage. My g grandfather wasSAMUEL HOY born 1850 in London, only child of John Hoyand his first wife MARY BENNETT. Mary died soon after childbirth. John then married FRANCES BULL in 1853, they had a large family and lived in London. Samuel was sent to live with relatives by the name of BULLwho owned a grocers shop in Edinburgh Scotland. He first trained as a footman andlater ran away to seaarriving in New Zealand in 1874. Although Sam did not tell his family much about his early life, he did say that his grandmother was a BURNS and that he had an uncle in Canada and another in Africa.
I am trying to trace both Samuel's forebears and his father's second family so would appreciate any help that anyone can give me.
