Hi Philippa, how wonderful to hear from you. Your great grandfather George Drury and my grandfather James Arthur were brothers. I'm in touch with quite a lot of members of the Drury family all round the UK and I've known for a long time that there was a branch of the family in New Zealand, but not how to contact you so this is brilliant.
I grew up in the village of Staunton in Nottinghamshire which is where James Drury settled in 1873 and raised his family, including George & Arthur. I'm not sure how much you know about the family & how much you want to know, but I have lots of photos and information if you're interested.
I'd love to know more about you're family too. If your father & uncle are interested in sharing their memories with me, I'd love to hear from them.
I'll stop for now and wait to hear from you. If you'd like to e-mail me directly my address is email@example.com
Very best wishes
Jill Wilbraham (nee Drury)
