Comment:I descend from John Murfitt who came to New Zealand. Born 1816 to Richard Murfet & Elizabeth Hayhoe. I notice in one sentence you mention 9 children of Richard & Elizabeth. In another you say they had 3 children. Also saying that 4 of their sons came to live in Hadspen-Longford area. No worries. I have a different date of death for Langman Murfet which makes the length of his life 90 years rather than 101 years. 1736-1827 rather than 1736-1837. Regards, from Marion J Hansen.

Comment:Hello, I have a friend who has retired from the U.S. Foreign Service. She collects postcards from travels of places she has been assigned. As a gift, I found a vintage card from 1910 which has a painting called "Fifeshire Coast" of St. Monans.by "A. Young". In researching, I discover just a little more about the artist, Alexander Young. He was an Edinburgh artist and teacher known for marine painting, fishing genre, and Scottish coastal views. He lived in Pittenweem in his later years and painted many village scenes in the East Neuk of Fife - some of which were reproduced as prints and postcards. I believe he was born in 1865 and died in 1923. I found several other works that had sold in various galleries. But most did not provide much about the artist, biographically. There were many works that were similar scenes of Scottish coastlines and harbors. I don't know if you are familiar with postcard history and those printing companies during those early periods. They have become highly collectible. And one of the most successful printers was Raphael Tuck and sons, of London. Tuck was known for using artwork by many established and lesser-known artists. They had competitions to select artwork for the many holiday cards, annually. It's funny that I do not find more about Alexdr Young when I Google him. In fact, that's how I discovered your website....from the various responses to my search. I did receive a short response from the Scottish Royal Academy that didn't provide anymore info than what I had already knew. In a quick ancestry.com record search, I did find an Alexander Young, son of a John Young, of Lower Largo, with an 1876 school admission record in Fife, for the "Kirkton of Largo Public School". Perhaps he is related to your family? Best Regards, Dan Hammond Mentone, AL

Comment:I notice that you have assigned the children of Eliza Jane Wyatt and Alexander Oliver to Walter Oliver and Lily Smith. Lily was my great aunt and had only two children, Joy Kathleen, who did not marry and Gladys Mary who married Loydon Burge (not Laydon.) I knew these people well and Gladys helped me with details of the family some years ago.
