Tena koe carolp,

Make sure you are in the Whakapapa Club and click on Gull Search, then search for Gage.

When you have had a look at those results and follwed them up, in the Whakapapa Club under the Online Searching menu is Tips for searching Google. Go there, have a quick skim of the info then click on the link at the bottom of the page. Fill in the form - I found results with one of the children's names and just George Gage as the father - and have a look through those.

Good luck and let us knwo how you get on

Also searching for info on George Gage: He was involved with my GGGrandfather Thomas Maxwell. Both were in Bay of Islands around 1836 and later at Manakau and Waiheke Island -1838 -1842+ for Gage,Im interested on where he came from when he arrived and what he did for a living. I suspect it may be the same person. Interested to hear if you know of any early info-regards Joy
