The Gear family tree has its 
in Parsons Drove Cambridgeshire, 
England with Hannah Gear(nee Sharpe 
1798) and John Gear (born 1811) the 
continued in New Zealand when their 
grandson Joseph Samuel Gear arrived 
the Otago gold fields. 

Joseph after two years sailed to 
Australia to try his luck in the 
fields in the Monaro 
It was there that he met his wife 
Anne Huggett in Braidwood and raised 
family. Joseph,
Mary-Anne and their family later 
moved to 
Marlborough, New 
Zealand prior to 1907. 
away on 28th 
October 1907 in Blenheim New Zealand 
Joseph passed away 27th August 1932 
Waterlea Farm 
Havelock, New Zealand.
The dominant families represented on 
tree are the Gear Family, Hearfield 
Family, Leitch 
Family, Pope Family and the 
Fawkes Family

During the course of creating this 
tree I 
have decided to include as many 
and twigs as 
I can depending on the information 
received from all family members and 
information sourced from 
the internet and other family trees.
This provides an interesting insight 
our many family connections,the 
tribulations facing some of those 
families and some surprising 
going back through the
years that are connected to the Gear 
Family either directly or by 
I will continue to manage and update 
family tree as further information 
data is found or 
provided. This site is updated by 
Gear and you are welcome to contact 
me at

The Gear family tree is currently
