About Our Family Research

I have been researching my family for about 10 years. (1994 - 2004) and think I have found all the Vincent relations in NZ. I am interested in finding out about the family in Australia. The name of my relative who emigrated to Sydney Australia was William Woodley Prideaux Vincent. He arrived in Australia in the 1880's and was thought to have been a Pharmacist. Reported to have opened a Chemist Shop in Pitt St Sydney. Friends said that there was a Vincent's Chemist Shop in Pitt Stas recently as the 1980's. Whwen I visited the area in 1996 there was no recollection of this.
My family were/are from Cambourne, Cornwall in the UK. My GGfather was one Thomas Bullen Vincent. He arrived in Invercargill, Southland, NZ in about 1882. Married to Agnes Vint (Veint) in AUGUST 1883 in Invercargill. Agnes and thomas had 9 children. Agnes died in 1920 and Thomas remarried Bella Fairlie in 1921. Thomas and Bella had a number of children most of whom died either at birth or very young.
Agnes is related to the Veint family who owned Paradise Station at the head of Lake Whakatipu (Queenstown NZ)
I am married to Mary and have three grown children. Any contact would be appreciated.
