  • Notes 


    • The birth of a James Pee birth was registered in the September quarter in Dudley, Worcestershire. The 1861 census , when the family was at Stourbridge, Worcestershire, says that James was born in Salop (Shropshire). Probably he was born in Shropshire and the birth was later registered in Dudley, which is only 6 km from Stourbridge.

      James married Rebecca Scarborough. They had 5 children: Ethel Mary, Clara Emma, Ethel Mary, Olive Winifred and Harold. James passed away in 1938 at his home in Stratford Street, Parnell, Auckland, at age 87. His obituary in the NZ Herald noted that he was one of the oldest and best-known members of the congregation of St Mary's Cathedral. He had been elected to the vestry 44 years ago, and held office continuously until his death. although he was not a carpenter by trade, he built the home in which he lived all his married life.
