Descendants of Stephen Lawrence

Although Stephen was shown in the submitted tree as born in St Helier, some online sources show him born in Deal, Kent, the son of John Lawrence (1776- ) and Mary Cleveland (1780- ). They are shown as having a son Stephen Bendigo Lawrence in 1829, who married Harriet Esther Le Brun and emigrated to New Zealand. Their first child is shown as Stephen Bendigo Lawrence, born in Jersey in 1853.

However, Stephen Bendigo Lawrence was baptised in St Helier in 1852, the son of Stephen Lawrence and Ann Webb. Others shown as children of Stephen and Harriet Le Brun in the online trees were the children of Stephen and Harriet Joyce, as shown in our tree. We believe that the online trees have combined three different sets of children and associated then with Stephen Bendigo Lawrence and Harriet Esther Le Brun

An 1851 census return for the Lawrence family at 28 Providence Street, St Helier, shows the first two generations in this tree, indicating that Stephen and Mary and their first two children were born in England, and Lorenzo in Wales.

We suggest that this tree is treated with extreme caution and ask any New Zealand Lawrence descendants who can throw any light on the anomalies in online descendancies to get in touch with us
