Looking for any connections with a Mrs Luce living at 14, Clarence Rd , St Heliers around 1901 +/-10. The founder of the town of Waipawa in New Zealand Frederick Sedgwick Abbott was boarding here with his wife Ida. He died in 1901 and she died in 1943, (not sure where she was living)

red mail Lieut General Frederick George Lister
My Great Great Grandfather, born in London 1790, Lieut General Frederick George Lister died in St Helier, Jersey on 28th Feb 1870 at the age of 80. He died at number 6 Norfolk Terrace, St Helier and is buried in Mont à LAbbé cemetery. As far as I am aware, there was no history of his family in Jersey before he moved there (he is still listed as being in the Bengal Army the previous year) and I can find no one of his family remaining there after his death. His family before and after him are centred around London. I know that his half Indian daughter Sophia predeceased him in London, and that the other children by a different Indian local stayed in India (I am from this line, though some of the descendants ended up back here in the UK!). He had two children via his marriage to Hariette (Hamilton) Pearson but they seem to be on the mainland, and even his widow shows up on the 1871 census a year after his death in London. It seems that his stay there in Jersey was very fleeting. In his will, his usual address is given as being in Sussex. So I am intrigued - why did he die in Jersey? It seems that where he died was an affluent area, and it also seems that he had bought his burial plot himself before his death. I wonder if he had perhaps intended to do as many people were doing - being attracted to Jersey's financial perks and newly up-and-coming area there, in Rouge Bouillon, but perhaps his death came sooner than anticipated and his widow decided to move in with her granddaughter in London rather than be alone. I would love to hear of anyone who may know anything about this, or about the general way of this part of the island. Thank you in advance.

red mail James Thomas Smith
On his 1876 New South Wales marriage certificate, my 2nd GG says he was born in Jersey in 1852 to a Joseph and Catherine Smith. There was a St Helier birth to a John Smith and Catherine Finn in 1852. But it casts doubt on his origins. After all, he lists his occupation as mariner and address as "all around the Australian coast". Funny man.
