===================

There is at least one record of a KENYON family living near Nelson in the 1860s:

Nelson Evening Mail
August --- 1868
births:
KENYON, 25 Aug, at Dovedale, Mrs H Kenyon, a daughter

==================
Emigration date included in J T Norcross military record.

================================

From a granddaughter of Frederick:

The family in Preston, Lancashire were,
Thomas Norcross, wood merchant
his wife Alice Elizabeth (nee Kenyon)
Their children at the time they left:

John, who went to America and was your ancestor.

Those who came to New Zealand in stages:

David, with his wife Sarah and three daughters
Elizabeth, with her husband Tom Gardner and at least two of their children
Margaret, with her husband Jack Hartley, no children
Tom, single, wood merchant/music teacher. Killed in World War 1
Mary, who died at about 21
Alice, who was the mother of Tommy Dunn, Linda Schrom"s father-in-law
Frederick, who was my grandfather.

I believe the three youngest came out with their widowed mother after the others were established here.
