Hi Jenny, just learning how to use this message board so typed in John Loveridge who is my 3x great grandfather. Your message came up from back in 2003. Just in case you haven't found an answer to your question yet, I have a William Birdling Loveridge born in 1873 married to Ethel Arnold, and his parents are William Loveridge and Mary Ann Forster. John Loveridge who came out on the Timandra in 1842 parents are a mystery. My sister and I are trying to find them too. I got his death cert from NZ but there was hardly anything on it and certainly no parents. We are still working on this mystery.
