Lillian Maria "Lily" Rawlinson, born at Tottenham, London, in 1881, married Walter Bint at Birkenhead, NZ. They had eight children. He was christened Walter because he was born in 1876 during his parent's voyage to New Zealand on the "Cardigan Castle" which arrived at Christchurch in February 1877.

Her father, Henry Rawlinson (born 1857), who had been a builder in Tottenham, London at the time of the 1881 census, had arrived at Auckland in 1885 on the "Doric" with wife Emma, and daughters Florence (born 1884) & Lillian (1881-1971). Another daughter Hilda Emma was born in 1886. They lived at Birkenhead, NZ.

Hi Tom, what a nice surprise this email was, didn't think I would find anyone in the UK who would know my family. 
Yes he did marry a Rawlinson, in Auckland NZ in 1900's. 
I have all the birth and marriage certificates except Walter's, there is no record of his birth in NZ, and I haven't had any luck with record offices in the UK. I have all the right information just don't know where to go with it. 
I have been lucky to have 3 of his daughters living close by to give me the info. 
You might be interested to know that my sister also married a Rawlinson, they say are no relation to our side of the family, but you never know do you. 
Anyway my name is Joy Oliver, I live at  Welcome Bay, Tauranga,. My Dads name is Norman Sidney Bint, he passed away 19 yrs ago, 1-12-83. I have been tracing his family for about 5 yrs, it is such a long process.

Hi Tom, greetings from NZ. Yes I did have a quick look at your new web site when I get a bit more free time I'll sit down and go through it in a bit more depth, what I did read made good reading, however what is the association with the "Bint's", and Berkshire? 
Anyway here is what I can tell you . 
My grandmother is Doris Bint, formally Doris Climo and she was married to Henry Charles Bint, Henry served in World War 2 and as I believe died of cancer in the mid Fifties. They had two children, Warwick and Wavenay. Warwick (my father, married Jacqueline Ward, and they had four children, me, Chris, (the oldest), Paul, Andrew, and Joanne the youngest. They separated in 1984, and Warwick subsequently married twice more, the first ending in yet a another divorce and the third his wife died. He lives in Dubbo, NSW, Australia. Myself, Paul and Joanne all still live in Wellington, New Zealand, and our brother, Andrew, left for Australia about five or six years ago and nobody has heard from him in about three years. Wavenay, married Gary Parkinson, and they have no children and still live in Wellington, New Zealand. Doris is getting along a bit in years and age has taken its toll but she still hanging in there at a retirement village close to where we live. 
I have been married twice and have two children, two seven year olds. My brother is also married and has no children. Joanne is married and has no children. 
I haven't included any dates as I'm useless at recalling that sort of information, I'll sit down and work them out and send them along as well. 
All the best Tom, good to hear from """Family'''''' ... 



My name is Ron Bint and I live near Hamilton New Zealand. My father was Norman Sydney Bint - originally from Taranaki. A few years ago his brother, Len, passed away. He had no family as his wife had passed away and he had no children, so we had the job of sorting out his belongings. In among them was the original Passenger Contract Ticket for Philip and Charlotte Bint and their 3 children on the Cardigan Castle. We could not believe our eyes. It has been laminated so is in good condition.
