New Zealand
Raewyn Vincent Lived in New Zealand.



I was born at the now non-existent Essex hospital in Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand. When I was younger, my mother would say that I was born next to the bun factory (there was a bread factory in the same street. It was Essex bakery). Essex hospital was a small hospital for maternity and was in Essex Street not far from the central city.

I presently reside in Kansas with my family, having left Christchurch a year before the first major Christchurch earthquake.


Every life has its own story. When I'm older, I will share mine. But for now, I look to the past to see what I can find out about some of the traits I have inherited and what contributes in the making of me.

Family Research

My interest in family research came about as a result of a family tree that was given to my father. He looked at it and I looked at it and while I didn't pay a lot of attention at the time, it did pique my interest and I "snagged it". (My father has never complained, so I'm lucky there!) I wanted to know the origins of the Vincent name. Was it French, Italian? Where did my father's family come from? I have yet to find the answers for my specific line, but in the meantime I am looking elsewhere in other parts of the family, because one never knows which family member decides to take interest in their heritage. And that leads into the next part.


I have to give credit to my second cousin Richard L. Vincent of New Zealand for all of his research prior to the advent of home Internet access! Family genealogy research was much more difficult, especially when trying to trace family from one side of the globe to the other before personal computers and online databases. It is he whom sparked my interest in genealogy at all and I am grateful for this. His line of research also involved some rumour we somehow had a relationship to the Vincents of Stoke D'Abernon. A family rumour, which may be little more than that, but some rumours have turned out to be true. Unfortunately, the likelihood is if we were somehow related to them, we may have been the result of some form of illegitimacy. Unless I could get my father's DNA compared to someone of that line, or further information comes to light about Henry Vincent I don't think we'll ever be able to confirm or deny it.

Just so you know... just because sources are all from ancestry.com doesn't mean that the profile is unsourced. I removed your "unsourced" tag from my relative's profile.

Raewyn, thank you for the correction on the death date and spelling issue for Asbury F. Dickinson (Dickinson-4253). I made the correction before seeing your note, but I wish that I had seen it first. I am not sure how I get notified of corrections, but this one was missed. Sorry. However, all is fixed now.

Cheers! Eileen
