1. Rose Beatrice Curtis (1880 - 1909) married Willie Brunton Nicoll (1879 - 1959) in 1901. During their brief marriage, Rose and Willie had a number of children:
1.1 Willie James Herbert Nicoll (1901 - 1955). Willie married Hilda May Lavinia Batt in 1926.
1.2 Harold Leonard Frederick Nicoll (1902 - 1964). Harold married Dorothy Cecil Vorback (22 February 1906 - 1987) in 1929.
1.3 Rita Violet Ellen Nicoll (1904 -1923). Rita died early, aged just 18 years. It appears that she sadly died as the result of a botched abortion, in the days before abortion was legal in New Zealand. The NZ Truth published this report about the Depositions hearing with respect to the two men charged with her murder - her boyfriend Thomas Viggars, and Richard Hollis - on 26 May 1923:
1.4 Augustus Cecil Neale "Cecil" Nicoll (1905 - October 1943, Marlborough)
The following article appeared in the 19 September 1908 edition of the Marlborough Express:
Eileen Mabel Curtis Nicoll (1909 - 1909). This baby died at the age of just seven weeks.
Probably as a result of the birth, Rose also died in 1909. I think, following Rose's death, Cecil was probably returned to his father's care.
In 1921 Willie Brunton Nicoll married Susannah Maber.
2. Harold Sidney Curtis (1886 - 1965) married Esther Knapp (1886) in Palmerston North in July 1905. However, by March 1906 they had been granted a separation order and later in 1906 there is reference to him not obeying an order of the Court to maintain his wife.
They were divorced in May 1919:
Harold then married Charlotte Alvina Hardy (1892 - 1952)in 1920. Harold and Esther had at least two daughters:
2.1 Leah Ellen Curtis (1905). Leah married Charles James Harrison (8 December 1900 - 1982) in 1927.
2.2 Vera Curtis (1907 - 1956). Vera married Frederick Ralph Lewis in 1928.
