  • Notes 


    • Mary (known as Molly) was born on 31 Mar 1925 at 28 Hanson St, Wellington, before her parents married on 6 Mar 1926. Her birth was registered on 31 Mar 1933 under the Legitimation Act by her father C. F. Andrews, who was then living at 30 Fitzherbert St, Petone.

      Family sources believe that Molly's father was a lawyer. On this basis Judy Sinnott, Molly's daughter, applied in 2015 for her adoption record. In Jun 2016, the Family Court in Wellington advised Judy that there was no record of an adoption.

      Under section 2 of the Legitimation Act 1908 (New Zealand), a child born after the marriage of his or her parents was, on registration under the Act, deemed to have been legitimated by the marriage from birth. Unless evidence to the contrary emerges, it seems that Molly was born to Charles Andrews and Mona Reiche before they married.

      Molly had a double wedding with her sister Patricia.
