Here you can see the material held on Ancestry about Joseph Keetley born in Hathern in 1820 to William Keetley and Sarah Harrison. The Keetleys were a very long established Hathern family. After marrying Alice Mary Sturgess he moved to Melbourne Derbyshire and set up as a blacksmith employing three men and three boys before emigrating to Kaiapoi New Zealand to set up a successful foundry. We still do what the connection is, if any, to the site of Kaiapoi cottages on the Derby Road.
