About Me


I was born on the 10th of October 1994 in Palmerston North, Manawatu, New Zealand to Andrew Shelley and Angelene McBride.

Relocation Relocation

We lived in Palmerston North for about a year after I was born and then at some point in 1995 we moved onto Whitby, Porirua, New Zealand until somepoint in 1997. We then moved to Timberlea in Upper Hutt of the Wellington Region of New Zealand, and have lived here ever since.


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

  1. James Shelley
  2. Daniel Stephens

Medical Issues

Since I was little, I have been subject to asthma attack. 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 Riverstones an Assemblies of God church. Around about the 14th of October 2012 during the same weekend as I celebrated my 18th birthday - I was baptised.

Hobbies, Talents and Abilities

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 (unnamed)


Professionally I am a qualified Barista, Bartender and Waiter. I also have decent ability as a Builder, Landscaper, Painter, Gardener, Architect, and as a Paver


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 are. To me it is interesting to have found that I have a Connection to the Presidents of the United States, and by that I mean 37 of the past Presidents. Slowly I have been discovering a growing list of Soldiers in the Family both directly related and distantly related and then there is my current to-do list

Maternal Ancestry

The following are things I'm working on through my mother's ancestry:

  • Currently looking into a branch of the Ricketts family whom are connected to my cousin Augusta Sybella Master by marriage
  • Contributing to Debi's Moseley One Name Study as Mosley is the surname of a precursing grandfather
  • Contributing to the McBride One Name Study as that surname is attributed to one of my grandfathers
  • Contributing to the Buchanan One Name Study as that surname is attributed to one of my grandmothers
  • Dealing with profiles on my unsourced profiles list who are related to my mother

Paternal Ancestry

  • Dealing with profiles on my unsourced profiles list who are related to my father
  • Contributing to the Shelley One Name Study as my surname is that.
  • Contributing to the Lock One Name Study as that surname is attributed to one of my grandmothers

National Ancestry

  • Along with others, there is a gradual progression towards connecting The NZ Prime Ministers to the global tree (at the moment we are currently halfway there with 20 out of 40 connected) and 5 of whom I'm related to

Hi Richard,

I noticed that you recently adopted a profile for an unconnected person, then proceeded to change who it was entirely to make it a Shelley profile. It's best if profiles remain who they originally are, and if someone doesn't exist on WikiTree, to create a new profile for them. Recycling profiles with identifying information on them-names, dates, biographical information-is considered damaging to the tree. Thanks for being a member and your understanding! Abby

Hi Richard, It would be really helpful if you would add locations for birth, marriage and death for the profiles you create. Even just the country is helpful, if you don't know the exact city or county. Thanks!

I greatly appreciate the help and expertise. I'm a good writer, but my technical skill suck. I'm excited when I learn a new bit of formatting for profiles.

Finally got to take a look and I love it, thank you so much for your work. Please feel free to make improvements as you see them needed. I'm still trying to find an easy free mapping because I'd like to show distribution. ZeeMaps is nice, but you have to enter every single individual... ugh...

Thank you for adding your profiles to my One Name Study. If you have any insights or formatting skills (of which I am woefully lacking) I would be happy to implement any ideas and suggestions you have regarding how to improve the Moseley page.
