RHODES FAMILY HISTORY
Great, Great Grandfather sailed to New Zealand on what history books in
New Zealand have said, "his brother's vessel". His name was
Richard Rhodes (later always stated himself to be Richard Mark) and he
was born in Pontefract, Yorkshire, 1821.
It is believed he was a bachelor when he
married his young bride but now evidence is emerging he may have had a
wife or two in Milton and surrounds. We do know an Elizabeth sailed on
the George Fyfe to New Zealand and a person in Yorkshire claims that her
Grandmother Charlotte had several children with him also. Any help on
his parents, siblings would be gratefully received.
