Hi Just found your post. I have been researching the Jordan Tree for 30plus years and would love to hear how you know about the arrive of FW Stevens Jordan as I have been unable to find any details of his arrival in NZ. It was his wife Ellen Moore family who were bakers his side publicans. I have a lot of details if you are interested. It was his son who was the livery stable. They owned Matlock Hydropathy Water Cure in Rangiora.

My great-grandmother Ellen Jordan (nee Moore) was born 27 Feb 1845 in the greater London area. She arr at Lyttelton on "Himalaya" in 1873 with three small children, and met up with husband Frederick William Stevens Jordan who had arrived as a ship's baker sometime previously.
They lived for a time in Christchurch before moving to Rangiora.

They had married in West Hackney 14 February 1863. Their daughter Martha had died before they left England.
A further six children were born after they arrived in NZ, and youngest son Benjamin was killed in a WW1 accident in Codford, UK in 1918. My grandfather Noah Stevens Jordan b. 1 August 1881 was their fourth son (and eigth child).

Research shows that Fred Jordan was a baker by trade, but ran livery & bait stables and coaches in Rangiora, with his sons assisting. There are no family members still in Rangiora.

Ellen Jordan died at Rangiora 20 February 1903, not quite 58 years old, and is buried in the C.of E.
cemetery in Rangiora in the Jordan family plot.

I am seeking photographs of this family, as I have nothing to record them by, and I welcome any contacts.
