About Gear Family Tree
Please sign in to see more.
The Gear family tree has its 
 beginnings in Parsons Drove Cambridgeshire, 
 Wisbech England with Hannah Gear(nee Sharpe born 1798) and John Gear  (born 1811) 
 the tree continued in New Zealand when their grandson Joseph Samuel Gear arrived in  the Otago gold fields. 
 Joseph after two years sailed to Australia to try his luck in the  gold fields in the Monaro District. 
 It was there that he met his wife Mary-Anne Huggett in Braidwood and raised  a family. 
 Mary-Anne and their family later moved to Marlborough, New Zealand prior to 1907.  Mary-Anne passed 
 away on 28th October 1907 in Blenheim New Zealand 
 and Joseph passed away 27th August 1932 
 at Waterlea Farm Havelock, New Zealand.
 The dominant families represented on 
 this tree are the Gear Family, Hearfield Family, Leitch 
 Family, Pope Family and the 
 Hawksworth Fawkes Family

During the course of creating this tree I have decided to 
 include as many branches 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 
 into our many family connections,the trials and
 tribulations facing some of those families and some surprising  connections going back through theyears that are connected to the Gear  Family either directly or by marriage.
 I will continue to manage and update the family tree as further information  and data is found or provided. This site is updated by Kenneth  Gear and you are welcome to contact me at 

The Gear family tree is currently linked to 601 other family trees or  genealogy sites.
