Re: John Ings m. to Sarah Wickham
John Ings DAYSH married Elizabeth CLARKE on the 9th Feb 1833 in Wickham, Hampshire. The IGI record of John's christening shows his parents as John INGS and Sarah. I cannot confirm the surname WICKHAM as you suggest. John Ings DAYSH and his siblings were born in Wickham, Hampshire - I wonder if the surname has become confused with the place - i.e. Sarah of Wickham.
John Ings DAYSH and Elizabeth CLARKE emigrated to New Zealand on the "SS Gertrude", 19 Jun 1841, sailing from Gravesend in Kent.

Daysh John Ings 33 Shepherd
Mary Ann 2
John 3 months
I am also trying to figure out the INGS/DAYSH connection - the parish records for the children of John INGS and Sarah show the childrens surnames as INGS (Alias DAYSH).
Are you able to confirm Sarah's surname?
Please also see the guestbook on my web site, www.daish.net, for an email address of someone in Hamilton, New Zealand who claims his great great grandfather as John Ings Daysh.
