Hi John Martineau,or other possible relatives. Re: your message 310 31/1/00.(hope you found the book! My G.grandmother was Annie Fabian(Anglisised from Febrien, Jersey Channel Is.)nee Giles (shortened from Thornton-Giles )m 22/7/1875 d Greytown NZ 27/8/1882. Her parents were Henry Giles and Annie Elizabeth Martin m Wellington NZ 5/8 /1852 Annie d Sydney Australia 11/6/1905 Her parents were James and Augusta Martin m.c1828 in London. I have only just discovered James surname was originally Martineau! He allegedly had relatives Harriet and Rosaline Martineau, one was an artist of note with paintings in London and Paris and the other an author( presumably Harriet)
Can anyone confirm or add to this information, particularly James details etc.
