Wow, i'm quite blown away by this information. Thank you so much for sharing.
Pilkington is a second name, which was given to the first born only male only, or if a girl was born first, then she will get it as a 2nd name, like my aunt has, but somewhere along the line it became a surname, which is why i'm trying to find this all out.
Sadly, it seems that there was a big family dispute many years ago, and as a result we don't know the rest of the family.
Do you know why they moved to NZ?
I'm assuming that Adrian then brought the kids here to SA, instead of back to the UK?
I don't have a subscription at the moment, is it possible to send me some of the info you have?
