Olwyn Kearvell (1928-  ) pictured at her wedding on 19th February 1949 in St Aidan’s Church, Hamilton, New Zealand to Richard Thomas McDonagh (1925-2007).


Olwyn is  a daughter of Leslie Kearvell (1901-1985) and Florence Myfanwy Jones (1903-1992). Her father had emigrated to New Zealand in 1909 from Maidenhead, Berkshire, England as an 8 year old youngster with his sister, Mildred, and parents Francis George Kearvell (1876-1936) and Edith Rogers (1880-1963).


Olwyn and Richard (“Dick”) had three daughters, Beverley, Lesley and Margaret,  and they are pictured below (left to right)  in 1999 helping celebrate their parent’s  50th Golden Wedding Anniversary.


Olwyn still lives in Hamilton, New Zealand and has always been a keen supporter of KEARVELL Family History.
