  • Notes 


    • When James married Julia Augusta Nelson in 1899, the witnesses were Ernest Walter Nelson (brother of Julia) and Minnie Elizabeth Barham. Minnie married at West Ham in 1900, most probably Henry Joseph Rowland. She was possibly a friend of Julia.

      The Andrews family emigrated from England to New Zealand by ship, leaving England on 13 Nov 1908 and arriving at Wellington on 25 Dec 1908. The immigrants were James, 38, a mariner, his wife Julia, 28, and 4 children:
      William, age 8;
      Charles, age 6;
      Albert, age 2;
      Stanley, an infant (less than 12 months old).

      James and Julia Augusta first appear on New Zealand electoral rolls in 1911 in Aro Street, Wellington. Their children Hilda (1913) and Horace (1914) were born in New Zealand. According to James' death entry, he also had a daughter born about 1917 and a son born about 1919 - these two have not yet been identified.

      It appears that the family first lived in Wellington, and moved to Lower Hutt about 1914. They lived in Korokoro. James died in 1935, his Evening Post 21 Oct 1935 death notice of 21 Oct 1935 read:

      'Andrews - on October 10, 1935, at Wellington Hospital, James, beloved husband of Julia Augusta Andrews, of Normandale, Lower Hutt.'
