Timaru Herald - South Canterbury’s newspaper
February 1881, Marriages
BLACKMORE - SYMONDSON - At the Congregational Church, on January 29th, by the Rev. Henry Williams, John Blackmore, of North street, Timaru, to Eliza Symondson, late of Christchurch and formerly of New Road, Kings Cross, London.
Timaru Herald, July 1885, Deaths
BLACKMORE - On the 1st July, the wife of J.D. Blackmore, Makikihi, aged 44 years. [If this is the John Blackmore above, and this his is wife Eliza, the age is a match to the Eliza Symondson]
Also possibly connected. In the 2 April 1873 Timaru Herald
Port of Timaru, arrived April 1 -- Maori, s.s., 118 tons, Malcolm from Lyttleton. passengers, Missis LeCren(2), Miss Symondson, Miss White, and 6 in steerage.
[Since Kings Cross is very near St Pancras, it adds credibility to the possibility. Also an Emma Symondson married in 1871 also in Timaru New Zealand, Moses Jonas, they had 9 children.]
