About The New Zealand Sheppard Family
Please sign in to see more.
This website documents the descendants of Thomas Sheppard [1633-1680] and his wife Jane Fry [dates unknown] and follows nine  generations of Sheppards to the children of Joseph Westby Hadfield Sheppard  [1885-1954] and his wife Edith Croxton [1886- 1965]. Their five children were:
 Aubrey Croxton Sheppard
 John Croxton Sheppard
 Marjorie Croxton Sheppard
 Nancy Croxton Sheppard
 Peter Charles Croxton Sheppard.

When I started researching the Sheppard family, I came across various spellings of the name such as SHIPPARD, SHEAPARD,  SHEPPERD, SHEPHERD and SHEPPARD. Today the family use the SHEPPARD spelling. For ease and convenience I have used this  spelling throughout this website.

Trawling through various websites, I came across a book - They came from Chilcompton written by Donald Clyde Sheppard in 1980 in  which he gives a history of Edward Sheppard and his wife Sarah Chard Oram and their seven children, the first family  of  Sheppards to settle in New Zealand in the late 1860s and early 1870s. Donald Clyde Sheppard's book became the base for this  website and using modern technology that was not available to him I was able to expand and in some cases correct his well  researched work. I have used some of the information from his book for the stories section of this website.

To maintain privacy you will not be able to view  information on living people throughout this site.

I hope you enjoy this website.  If you have any queries or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks to Brenda Sutherland and Jeanne Moody for providing photos for this site.

Remember that when a family member passes away, they take a library of memories with them. It’s a genealogist’s duty to record  them before that happens.
