Grafters All : Our Otago Families

Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa

Welcome, whanau, to this site! It outlines the genealogy of the Rylance, Allan, Kiry, Moss, Dick, Cunningham and associated families in New Zealand, from their roots in England and Scotland and Wales to New Zealand.

The whakapapa (family tree) starts with myself, Allan Sargison and Dr Patricia Rylance, my wife.

There are now some 16,500 entries but for all that it is very much a work in progress. Any input is welcome: just email

Please note that most photos are missing – i am currently revising the content and will be republishing progressively.
