Alfred SETFORD (1851-1916)

and Emily RICH (1856-1906)


Alfred Setford and Emily Rich married on 26 September 1877 in Christchurch, New Zealand.  (They were not my direct ancestors.)

Alfred Setford may have been baptised aged 9 months on 20 June 1852 in Hartfield, Sussex, and have been the son of William Setford (c1815-1884) and Elizabeth Ann Longhurst (1821-?).  Or he may have been born about 1849 and have been the son of Samuel Setford (1819-?) and Mary Ann Ball (c1820-1850).  When the 1871 census was recorded he may have been a convict in Chatham prison.  Alfred died aged 64 years on 30 April 1916 in Porirua.

Emily Rich was born in 1856 on Jersey in The Channel Islands.  She was the daughter of William Rich and Caroline.  She and her parents arrived in New Zealand on 29 June 1874 on board the ship "Stonehouse".  She died on 20 December 1906.
