I have two brothers, one from my mother's first marriage, and the second from her more recent marriage

  2. Daniel Stephens

Medical Issues

Since I was little, I have been subject to asthma attacks. For a time when I was heavy into swimming and hockey - the asthma issue had almost disappeared. However now, it still remains. I am grateful that I have not been hospitalized as a result of an asthma attack


Around about 2008 I started going to a pentecostal church. Around about the 14th of October 2012 during the same weekend as I celebrated my 18th birthday - I was baptised.

Talents and Work...


As far as sports are concerned, I have a degree of skill in most of them; I prefer archery, fencing, soccer, Hockey and cricket. I also have developed a swordsmanship form (which I have yet to formally name)

  • Professionally I am a qualified barista, bartender and waiter having studied (and worked) in the Hospitality industry of New Zealand for a time however this didn't work out.
  • Currently I am in the process of completing an I.T degree majoring in programming.
  • Although untrained professionally, I have acquired adequate skills in a number of the construction trades


Since I joined, I have found a few interesting nuggets of interesting information regarding who my forefathers are, and who some of more notable family members are. To me it is interesting to have found that I have a connection to a number of the US Presidents and 24 out of the 25 Magna Carta Barons. Slowly I have been discovering a growing list of soldiers in the Family both directly related and distantly related.

Maternal Ancestry

The main point of interest here is the Mosley surname associated with a percursing grandfather. As a result, I help Debi where I can with the Moseley One Name Study

Paternal Ancestry

Here I'm looking at the study associated with the Shelley surname as that is my surname and additionally interested to see where it traces back to (currently 17th century England) and also the Lock surname as that surname is attributed to one of my grandmothers (currently traced back to 18th century USA)

National Ancestry

I direct a subproject of the New Zealand Project which takes care of our politicians in regards to fully (or as close to fully) categorizing as we can.


  • First-hand information from myself...
  • Second-hand information from parents and grandparents


  • Campbell Braddock regarding the bones for the tables displayed in the linked free space profile pages - Thank You.
