Sandy Franklin Lived in Motueka, Tasman, New Zealand.
Alexander Franklin was born about 1832 in England. He was the son of Benjamin Franklin and Mary Ann Godsall. At the time of the 1841 census, he was living in Rotherhithe with his mother, brothers and sisters. They were awaiting their emigration to New Zealand on the ill-fated "Lloyds". This ship was one of the first four ships to Nelson, carrying the wives and children of the preliminary New Zealand Company party. She sailed from Gravesend on 11 September 1841. Alexander was 10 when he arrived on 9 February 1842 and spent his early years in New Zealand in the Nelson and Motueka areas.
Alexander married Frances Lovell, probably at Motueka in 1851.  He worked as a sawyer and must have had a small piece of land as he was levied rates by the Motueka Roads Board. By May 1869, he had left Motueka as he was no longer eligible to be on the electoral roll there, probably for Greymouth.
He later moved to Taranaki. Alexander passed away at Inglewood, Taranaki on 6 Aug 1883.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Sandy by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Sandy:
