FAMILY HISTORY

         (d) Thomas Eli Strawbridge (1799-1867) was born and died in England. In the * 1841 Census (see below) Thomas was a Agricultural Labourer. The family was living in Hill Head, Stockland, Devon. Following Thomas's death his wife, Sarah Strawbridge (nee Showers) accompanied her sons and daughter and their families when they emigrated to New Zealand in 1875 on the 'Dallam Tower'. There were 22 other members of the Strawbridge & Bond families listed as passengers and Sarah at the age of 73 was oldest passenger listed. The surname of Strawbridge had been listed as Shawbridge and this way of spelling the name can be found on many records along with other mistakes such as Stowbridge. Some of the names in the family tree, above, can be found in various records with different spelling.

          (e) Joseph Samuel Strawbridge (1845-1910) married Elizabeth Pavey on the 16th November 1874 as did Joseph's nephew, (f) Henry Albert Strawbridge (1852-1932) , marriage to Emma Berry. Banns were called on the 1st, 8th & 15th Novemeber 1874 for Joseph Strawbridge and Elizabeth Pavey. The UK Census for 1871 shows that Elizabeth Pavey was 19 years old, a dressmaker living with her widowed mother and that Emma Berry was 16 years old, a Dairymaid born in Axmouth and living with her older unmarried brother. Both Joseph and Henry Strawbridge were listed as passengers on the Dallam Tower accompanied by with their new wives. Following her husbands death, Elizabeth was known to have lived at Horsham Downs in Hamilton, New Zealand. This is recorded on her son, Allan's, Military Roll of Honour record (see Allan Joseph Strawbridge below).

          (f) Allan Joseph Strawbridge (1891-1915) is listed in the NZ Military Honour Roll as Gunner 2/567 who died at Malta on the 27th december 1915. He is buried at the Pieta Military Cemetery, Malta. He was decribed as being the son of Elizabeth Strawbridge of Horsham Downs, Hamilton and the late Joseph strawbridge.
