Note
Email from Helen Jennings 4 September 2008 William Westley's mother Matilda Wilkins she married twice and apparently the Westley children didn't know about her other children to Charles Lyford. Matilda was born at Charlton , near Malmesbury in 1839 . She arrived in Nelson from England on the ship "INDUS" in 1843 with her parents Thomas and Sarah WILKINS , when she was two years old. Matilda was the only daughter of Thomas and Sarah (nee YOUNG) who married in 1838. Matilda split up with Charles Lyford she co-habited with William Westley [ who happened to be Charles Brother-in-law] and is this William Westleys father
