[Part of the following, produced using BLGI1912, was first launched as a section of NZmisc03 on 19.03.13. It was reviewed and significantly expanded on 21.12.23 using BFR when it was moved here.]

  Andrew is the only one of this generation named by BLGI1912 which mentions only his marriage to Marianne French and their children. BFR shows an earlier marriage with children as follows. As this is not mentioned by BLGI1912, the later publication, this first marriage & offspring should probably be viewed with some caution.
