Hi all, I was born in New Zealand in 1946 and according to my birth certificate my father William Tunstall was 33 at that time. Born in New Castle England. As a child I remeber meeting an Uncle Tom (Thomas Tunstall) who lived in Australia who came over to New Zealand to visit us. There was also an Aunty living in Napier New Zealand (?? Alice). I am not 100% certain but I think there was another Uncle in New Zealand as well. Can anyone help me learn a little on where my father's family came from and any history on My fathers family.
As I child I remeber someone sending a beautiful dinner set for England with the Tunstall Name on was there any connection with this dinnerset and my fathers family.
It is 40 years since I had any contact with my parents and siblings but now some of my children have been asking me much about the Tunstall side family History these days and it would be nice to be able to tell them something of family so that they too could pass it onto their children.
I send a special thanks to any of you who can help me so I can give my children answers. Regards Lynne (nee Tunstall)
