WATTS family Pottery (General)

Hi Carmel,
My interest relates to Eliza Caroline Watts (1843-1915) whose birthplace in NZ is listed as "Chapmans" ,
Wiltshire. This has posed some difficulty for me as my William Watts family was more closely connected to Newnham, Glos where her father William and mother Charlotte were living. The 1851 census mentions an Eliza born Bromsgrove, Worcestershire in 1843 as a niece. There is an Eliza B Newnham 1844 in the 1861 census, which is more likely for me however Eliza emigrated to New Zealand in 1863 and married shortly after to a Frederick Thorne from Newnham.
I have no knowledge of siblings either in UK or NZ. I have tended to work on the Newnham area particularily as that is where my Thorne connections lie.
Hope this contributes to the search,
Russell Thorne
