FOREWOFID This latest reprint of the Williams Family 'Stud Book', has been occasioned by the holding of a family reunion to commemorate the 175th Anniversary of the arrival of Henry and Marianne Williams in the Bay of Islands. It is the latest in a succession of worthy publications, many of them produced by members of the family. In particular, though, it is an update of the book, Faith and Farming, produced

by Evagean Publishing in 1991. In preparing this publication, we have had three main objectives: Firstly to record the arrivals, departures and marriages that have occurred in the intervening years and to include corrections and additions to personal biographies. In this, we have been only partially successful. Although printouts were sent to 1,149 families, only 446 replies were received. Our second objective was to present more of the history of the brothers, Henry and William, and their wives, Marianne and Jane.

Whilst the public aspects of their careers have been dealt with in a number of scholarly works, we felt that this family book could be an appropriate vehicle to present a picture of their private and family lives, in so far as this is known. To do this, we have drawn extensively on the book, Shield of Faith by George Davies for information on the lives of Henry and Marianne. For William and Jane, we have chosen to

reprint the booklet, East Coast (NZ) Historical Records which was compiled by their son, Bishop W L Williams and printed after his death by the Poverty Bay Herald in Gisbome. Whilst it does not deal in depth with their family life, it is an important historical record of a turbulent period in which the family were central figures. We decided to print it in full because of its relative rarity, and because of its

relevance particularly to the many family (nearly one third) who still live in the Poverty Bay area. Our third objective was to utilise new technology that makes practical the inclusion of a much larger number of photographs. We are pleased to say that this part of the project has been particularly successful and we have been able to collect over 600 photographs, many of them historically significant. Besides being produced as printed and bound volumes, we have also brought out a CD-rom version

of the publication for use on computers. Whilst it is unlikely that any further reprint would be undertaken before the 200th anniversary reunion, we do intend to maintain the family database with any new information that is sent to us, and family members are urged to provide us with changes of address and births, deaths and marriages. We wish, also, to continue adding to our archive of photographs. As they

are received, we will copy them and return them to the owners. This additional data will be added to the master CD-rom and available to family members at any time.

The following introduction to the lives of Henry and Marianne Williams is drawn from the Synopsis ofSheild of Faith by George Davies. For William and Jane Williams, we have reprinted the text of the address given by Frances Porter on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the death of Bishop William Williams Rex Evans

evangelisation' had failed. What was needed was strong local leadership which both Henry and Marianne provided. But the barriers were daunting.

The first problem to be overcome was to establish a home and provide food for themselves and their family at Paihia. With the assistance of William Faulkner, they built a hut known as 'The Beehive' out of raupo and canvas. Despite the pleas ofMarsden to build themselves

moved into the latter, Henry expressed his pleasure that for the first time he had a room to himself- a study where he could leave all his papers and do his writing without interruption. By 1844, as well as a comfortable home they also had a well-established garden which attracted favourable comments from visitors of which there were many. It was not at all uncommon for Marianne to have

tension by 'having a good cry.' But such occasions were

was forbidden by both Marsden and Henry. Supplies from Sydney were inadequate and unreliable and the soil at Paihia was poor so they had to resort to farming at Waimate and use the Herald to seek provisions from other parts of the country to supplement their rations from the CMS store at Kerikeri. Next they had to learn the Maori language and, with the assistance of a syndicate led by William Williams, print a Maori Dictionary and translations of the Bible, the Catechism and Church Liturgy. It was also necessary to study Maori customs and religious beliefs, many features of which were antipathetic to the principles espoused by the CMS missionaries. Henry frequently intervened in tribal wars as a Peacemaker, not only in North Auckland but also in the Bay of Plenty, the Thames and the Waikato. While not all of these efforts were successful, his mana was such

that he was frequently asked by the Maoris themselves to assume this role, often under precarious and dangerous

circumstances. The most striking example of his influence in this regard was when his death became known to the warring parties fighting for the possession of the pa at Te Ahuahu. When the news arrived both sides laid down their arms and made peace. On the stone cross erected by the Maoris in his honour are the words: He tangata toa ki ti houhore rongo i roto i nga riri Maori, - 'A courageous man who made peace in the Maori Wars .

Because of his mana and his thorough knowledge of the Ivlaori language and with the assistance of his son, Edward, and the Rev Richard Taylor, Henry played a key role in translating the Treaty of Waitangi and persuading the Maori chiefs to sign it. In this he was supported by all the CMS missionaries in New Zealand. Whatever one may think about the significance of the Treaty of Waitangi and its effect on subsequent MaorV Pakeha relations it is clear that the role of Henry and his

strength occasionally left her tired and depressed; on such occasions she would go off to her room and relieve the rare. As she grew older Henry remarked that she was

beginning to flag but she outlasted him and right to the end retamed all her critical faculties. Sometimes she referred to the dangerous and onerous conditions of her

life in the 1820s with the comparative comfort and even 'sinful' luxury of life in the 1840s and showed little patience with new arrivals who complained that they did not have all the amenities of life in England. Apart from the differences of opinion on Marsden's policy of 'civilisation preceding evangelisation', Henry Williams and the Church Missionary Society were as one on matters of general missionary policy. He followed to the letter the policy of piety, industry, duty, selfquestioning, a strict observance of the Sabbath, an unshakeable belief in life after death, and a literal interpretation of the Bible. During the course ofHeke's War in the North, Henry Williams, then anArchdeacon, interceded atKororareka at great personal risk. For this he was accused by

Lieutenant Philpotts, a nephew of the Bishop of Exeter, of being a traitor. This charge was refuted by Governor FitzRoy but raised again by Grey in his notorious "Blood and Money" despatch. Subsequent enquiries established that not only was the claim false but that Henry and his missionary colleagues had saved the colony from destruction. The controversy over Henry's purchase of land cast

a pall over all their activities from as early as 1837 until Henry's vindication in 1854. It is difficult to dismiss the claim that where there is smoke there is fire but the final reconciliation with Grey, Selwyn and the CMS removes the canard that Henry acted illegally. Unfortunately, doubts still remain concerning the propriety of a missionary taking advantage of his position of trust and high standing with the Maoris to purchase any land at all. To some extent Henry was subjected to the same

seen as an unacceptable environment and neither Henry

and Marianne nor their children wished to be separated from their close-knit family circle. Consequently, all the children were educated at Paihia and Waunate at schools established by Henry, Marianne, Jane and William Williams. After that schooling there were no further educational opportunities. There were no Universities to provide an education for the professions and no opportunities for apprenticeships to trades. In 1834 and at great personal sacrifice an attempt was made to

overcome these deficiencies by sending Edward to England to study for a career as a surgeon but this did not succeed. Edward became seriously ill and returned

to New Zealand in mid-1838. All of the sons of Hem-y and Marianne got their original start in life working on one or more of the original properties, as did the husband of daughter Caroline, Samuel, who started as manager of the Pakaiaka Station in 1837 joined the ministry in 1844 and served with distinction in that capacity at Otaki and later at Hawkes Bay where he purchased and developed large pastoral holdings. The only direct benefit that Henry and Marianne received from Henry's land purchases were

the house and small section at Pakaraka, which they occupied after they left Paihia, and a regular supply of food from the effective farming of their sons. The conclusion from the land affair is that while Henry's actions were legally beyond reproach, the prolonged period of disputation severely reduced his effectiveness as a missionary. The issue did, however,

sti'engthen the love and support of his family. This was especially so in the case of Marianne. She did not hide her sense of the injustice to which Henry had been subjected but she only confessed it to her closest friends and children. Instead she used all her considerable talents for compassion, sympathy and strength of character to support her husband in all he did and to exercise her innate capacity for forgiveness to re-establish cordial relationships with those, such as Grey and Selwyn, who had played such a prominent part in persuading the CMS to take the action they did. Marianne was in eveiy sense

William and Jane Williams Address by Francis Porter (slightly abridged) on the 100th Anniversary of the death of William Williams. St John's Cathedral, Napier, 12 Feb 1978. Kate Heafhcote, William Williams' married sister who lived in England, once asked her brother, by letter, what being a missionary was like. Kate, an indefatigable worker for the New Zealand mission, would not, one

feels, have been surprised to hear of the perils and dangers that matched St Paul's. Instead her brother replied: "There is not much work in the daily or weekly routine of a novel character; my work is more like the unbroken course of a parish schoolmaster. A great deal of work,

but most of it the same character. The object is not the raising of exotics to please the eye, but rather the tree of vigorous growth, prepared to weather every storm."

With his Maori converts, William conversed and catechised. These two words appear again and again.

His journals make rafher dull reading. Ihave often wished that he had his brother Henry's pungent and racy turn of phrase, or that he had Colenso's ability to notice things, or that he had Selwyn's appreciation of the grandeur of the New Zealand scenery. But, to William Williams, it was the arrival, not the journey, that mattered. This 'parish schoolmaster' had an extensive parish to cover on foot. It centred on Poverty Bay, but stretched from

In January 1838, William Colenso was with a missionary party walking down the East Coast towards Poverty Bay. Oh! how sultry it was this day, travelling over the stony beaches at the foot of those eternal cliffs, without the luxury of at least shade. He, and the others of the party which included William Williams, were sustained on their journey by the thought of the immense codfish - gift of the chief of Whareponga - which they intended to have for their supper. But, just before eating, Colenso asked the question - when was

Later, William Williams spearheaded efforts by the missionaries to train a Maori pastorate with the idea that it would take over the Maori mission.

About the resurrection of the body, the evangelicals had not the slightest doubt.

These then were some of the certainties which governed William Williams' life and that of his brethren, and conditioned their missionary approach. To be saved, Maoris had to be changed, and the prototype which they should then conform was the sober, industrious, God-

efforts in the sections of the family to which they contributed.

A data verification programme was commenced in July 1997. By the time the files were closed in August 1998, we had sent draft printouts to 1,149 members of the family for whom addresses had been obtained. Each of these people was sent two printouts, the first when the programme first commenced and the second just prior to closing of the files. Notice of corrections and additional information was received from 446 correspondents. There are many who did not correct and return their draft printouts and, as a consequence, there are likely to be errors and omissions in the record which might otherwise have been avoided. The text notes following each entry in the book include the current addresses for all those family members who received draft printouts. A listing of all these addresses is held by Evagean Publishing for future use and reference by members of the family. It is our hope that their inclusion within the text notes will help the family to maintain contact and assist other researchers to carry on the work that has yet to be done. The

My sincere thanks are extended particularly to all members of the Reunion Committee who encouraged and supported the project in so many ways. Our particular thanks go to Tid Ludbrook who bore the brunt of our requests for help. We also express our sincere appreciation to George Davies for permitting the use of his wonderful book, Shield of Faith, in the historical section of the book. By extension, all those who helped George in his work, also receive our grateful thanks. Many others, too numerous to mention individually, have helped with their own family groups and I extend to them my sincere appreciation. If, despite my best endeavours, mistakes or omissions have occurred, I extend my sincere apologies to those affected. Please inform me of any necessary corrections so that the files can be updated for any future reprints.

His first boats that were involved in an attack on gun American ship, the President, escaped engagement was at Copenhagen in nine French gunboats. In September from the harbour and was pursued by the Endymion. A vigorous action took place

with the loss of eleven British and ninety American lives. The President was dismasted and holed and would have sunk but for continuous use of the pumps. A prize crew, including Henry, was put aboard and, despite atrocious weather conditions and a threatened insurrection by the prisoners, the President was sailed to Bermuda. Jury masts were fitted and the unseaworthy vessel was navigated across the Atlantic through severe storms

to Spithead where she arrived on 28 March 1815. The good news was that Henry learnt of his promotion to Lieutenant; the bad news, which depressed him, was that the 'glorious action' of the Endymion and the associated loss of life had been unnecessary because it had been fought three weeks after the signing of the Treaty

ofUtrecht and its ratification by the United States on 17 February of that year. On 30 August 1815, Henry was retired on half-pay which he drew for the next Model ship carved by Hemy Williams, aged 11.

While all this building of houses, sheds, chapel and ship were going on progress was made in developing the garden. Marianne was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable gardener. She was proud of it and relished the sense of peace which walking around it engendered. In October 1829 she wrote to her sister: 'As Jane and

Marianne wrote: "Our new house consists of four rooms in the main building, and skillions or out-houses with sloping roofs on each side. The doors are so placed that when I choose to open them I can look from one end to the other, and air it in the heat of summer". On 27 August 1830, Henry wrote; "My fingers are stiff after a day of hard labour in mixing mortar and

As the years passed and her children grew up Marianne spent more and more time in the garden planting and manuring. She received many cuttings and 'choice' plants from neighbours such as the Clendons and Busbys and planted pines, willows, cedars, moss roses, kowhais, geraniums, pear trees, asparagus, acacias,

We have hitherto been crowded together in a room not one third of the size. The building itself is as neat in appearance as an English building'. The chapel was a handsome building forty feet by twenty with a school room at the back measuring forty by fourteen feet.

To the right and left of the Chapel there were vacant lots owned by Henry and William on which it was proposed to erect schools of arts and sciences.

Early in 1829 Henry described the physical state of the Mission to his mother: "Our settlement is beginning to assume a very pretty appearance. It is fenced in front towards the sea for about a quarter of a mile and contains

Another man who can make good chairs & tables has also been sent just in time to work for us. Thus are our needs supplied by Him who knoweth all things".

Others crouching on their knees at the water's edge, made hideous faces, thrusting out their tongues and rolling their eyes as they would do to the enemy before battle. The Europeans gave three hearty cheers. The natives on shore broke into a furious war dance, which was answered by those on board, to the no small risk of upsetting the light craft, as she lay unballasted, high in the water. As the vessel was getting into deep water, she touched a sandbank and stuck fast for a few minutes. A line was carried out to the moorings which had been laid for the purpose,

purchased substantial tracts without any reference to them. They had acquired approximately 150,000 acres in total for which the estimated payment in goods was about £8,000. Not all missionaries indulged in large scale land purchases but some, including Ashwell and Octavius Hadfield, were critical. Ashwell, writing to A N Brown in 1839, said, 'I am deeply pained to see

the buying and selling spirit which has crept among us ... is it not true that

Mammon is the sin of the New Zealand mission'. Octavius Hadfield writing to his father, also in 1839, said, 'The persons engaged in the mission are for the most part ignorant men who have been advanced beyond their proper station in life; they likewise, never having possessed any property think it very fine to buy large estates of land at a very low price and have cattle and wheat etc. This grieves me to the heart'.

On 20 February 1853 there was great excitement when the old 'Heathen' chief Kawiti who had played such a significant part in the War in the North, was baptised by Henry.

Paihia on 11 January 1876. The Trinity Church at Pakaraka had been built with European funds but the Maoris wished to provide a tribute of their own. The initiative was taken by Matthew Taupaki,

Mrs Williams proved herself an efficient and zealous fellow labourer worthy of her distinguished husband". Alison Drummond says that in her later years Marianne was concerned when new arrivals to the Mission complained of their hard living. She compared their situation with the fact that she had to face real dangers and hardship. Those who came in the 1840s lived in a state of almost sinful luxury. On the other hand she rejoiced in her large comfortable house, the abundance of food, well-established

garden and the facilities to offer hospitality to the many visitors. When Henry wrote

When Henry told the CMS on his appointment as a missionary to New Zealand that Marianne accompanied him not only as his wife but as a 'fellow helper in the work' what he said was of even greater significance than even he anticipated.

AN ANCIENT TAONGA The hei-tiki, Nga Kahurangi o Nga Rangi Wairua is presently in the possession of a descendant ofHemy Williams and is being held at Te Papa Tongarewa pending a decision on its future. The following information on its histoiy and significance has been supplied by Rawiri Te Puru Terehou (David Simmons).

,"<a>

Ko Nga Kahurangi o Nga Rangi Wairua te hei-tiki, ko te kaitiaki o mua ko Piriama, he rangatira no Ngai Tahu o te Waipounamu me no Te Atiawa no Taranaki, kei te tauihu o te Waka a Maui ra. He mea I hanga mo tera rangatira in nga wa o mua. Ko tana mokopuna ko Noa Huke he ariki nui no Ngati Kahungunu, no Ngati Maniapoto me etahi atu iwi o Aotearoa nei. Ko te mana o te tiki I hoatu ki a Henry Williams, he whakapumau no ia te mana kia korero kia tu ai i runga i nga marae katoa o nga iwi, me kia mam ai tana whanau. Te koha te mana.

t^f

Nga Kahurangi o Nga Rangi Waima (The Treasure of the Spiritual Heavens) is the hei-tiki whose guardian in ancient times was Piriama,

a chief of Ngai Tahi of the South Island and Te Ati Awa ofTaranaki who belonged to the prow ofMaui's canoe (Northern South Island).

IT

It was originally made for him in ancient times. His grandson was Noa Huke ofNgati Kahungunu, Ngati Manapoto and other tribes of New Zealand. He gave a gift of the mana associated with the tiki to

Henry Williams to give him the right to stand on all the marae of the tribes and speak and to safeguard his family. The gift was the mana. (Nga Kahurangi o nga Rangi Waima was the visible symbol that the blood ofPiriama runs m the veins of his descendants. It has gathered much mana from each of the individuals who have held it since it was made some eight or nine generations ago. It cannot be owned but is held by its kaitiaki or guardian). Te Tohu tenei a Rawiri Te Pum Terehou, Kaitiaki o te Whare Taonga Ko Huiarau.

Marianne, d/o Wright Coldham and Anne Temple, b. at Yorkshire, England, d. and bd. atPakaraka. At the age of fourteen Henry joined the Royal Navy as a midshipman and saw action in several battles of the period before retiring on half pay in 1815. He worked for a short time as a drawing master until the time of his marriage when he came under the influence of his brother-in-law, Rev E G Marsh of the Church Missionary Society. In 1820 he moved to Hampstead to study for Holy Orders and was ordained in June, 1822. Later that year he left with Marianne and their three children on the convict ship Lord Sidmouth, spent several months in Sydney, then continued on to New Zealand on the Brampton, arriving at the Bay of Islands on 03 August 1823. Henry assumed leadership of the New Zealand Mission and for the next 17 years he directed the steady extension of Christian influence amongst the Maoris. Shortly after his arrival he built a raupo church, the first in New Zealand, at Paihia. This was replaced by a lath and plaster building in 1827 and by a wooden church in 1856. The present Church of St Paul was built by the Williams family in 1923 on the site of the original raupo chapel as a memorial to the work of Henry and his brother, William. Conversions were slow in the earlier years of the Mission. Warfare amongst the Maori tribes was rife and the sale of firearms was instrumental in making the conflicts particularly bloody. Henry devoted enormous energy to the mediation of differences and by persuasion and courage he was often able to bring a peace, or at least a temporary truce. Known as Te Wiremu, he gained the deep respect of many of the Maori chiefs and, over time, had a considerable influence on their activities. In 1826 Henry built a 55 ton schooner, the Herald, to enable him the better to provision the mission station and to more easily visit the more remote areas of New Zealand. She was wrecked in 1828 near the Hokianga Heads. During the 1830s new mission stations were established atTauranga, Rotorua, Waikato and Otaki and Henry travelled widely in order to minister to them. In 1839 he sailed by schooner with Octavius Hadfield to set up the Otaki mission and on the way they sought shelter at Port Nicholson where he met Edward Gibbon Wakefield. He visited Te Rauparaha on Kapiti island and then travelled overland by foot to Tauranga. When Captain Hobson arrived in New Zealand in 1840 Henry played a pivotal role in persuading the Maori chiefs of the northern districts to sign the Treaty of Waitangi and he later travelled throughout the North Island explaining the Treaty and obtaining additional signatures. Following the establishment of British rule, Henry's advice and assistance was sought by Governor Fitzroy and by Bishop Selwyn who installed him as Archdeacon ofWaimate in 1844. Sir George Grey, however, was jealous of Henry's influence amongst the Maoris and proceeded over the next few years to undermine his position and publicly discredit him. To provide for the future of his children, Henry had purchased 11,000 acres of land at Pakaraka and this became the focus of charges by Grey and others that Henry was involved in land speculation. He was dismissed by the Church Missionary Society in 1849 and he and Marianne left Paihia to live at Pakaraka where his sons were farming. Here he built a church and continued to minister to his very large following of Maori adherents. In 1854 he was reinstated by the CMS but remained at Pakaraka. In his final hours, Henry learned of a bitter dispute between two local tribes over the possession of an old pa. He sent his son, Edward to intervene but fighting continued until the warring parties learnt of Henry's death. A truce was declared and the two sides subsequently made a lasting peace. Before their departure for New Zealand, Marianne trained as a maternity nurse and studied the Moravian Methods of teaching and Organisation. She played a leading role in the establishment and running of the mission schools and provided care and comfort for those of the mission who suffered illness.

ยง Pakaraka From the early 1830s Henry Williams began providing for the future of his children by purchasing land. In a country with few opportunities for employment, farming was the one avenue available to the children of settlers. In 1833 Henry made his first purchase of land at Pakaraka from his friend, Te Morenga ofTaimai who stated in the Deed of Sale, "We, the undersigned Chiefs let go and sell to Henry Williams, to his children and his offspring (cont...)

Descendants of WILLIAMS, Henry and COLDHAM, Marianne WILLIAMS, Henry and COLDHAM, Marianne (cont...) forever..." In 1834, in a letter to E G Marsh, Henry reported that he has "succeeded in purchasing, for the benefit of the children, a good piece of land as a farm". He continued to add to this first area and the last block was bought in 1837. There is no record of the area of land purchased during this period as no surveys were taken and boundaries were established by the Maori custom of designating distinctive landmarks. However, when the Land Commissioners set about reviewing those purchases that had taken place prior to the signing of the Treaty ofWaitangi, Henry applied for 11,000 acres being 1,000 acres for each of his children. He had paid for the land mainly in goods and chattels and the Commissioners estimated the value of these at ÂŁ1,722. This, according to their formula, entitled him to a claim of 22,131 acres. But, in their report of 1844, the Commissioners recommended an award of 7,010 acres. But before the grant could be sealed, Governor Hobson died and, following the issue of an amended Ordinance, Henry's grant was reduced to 2,560 acres. Following the appointment of Governor Fitzroy, some grants, including Henry's, were again reviewed and in 1845 Henry was awarded an extension of 9,000 acres. In confirming the grant, Fitzroy declared it as "testimony of services rendered to the Colony." For the next few years Henry was forced to defend the ownership of his land against a series of persistent attacks from those who wished to see him dispossessed. The strongest attacks came from Governor Grey who mounted a campaign to persuade Henry to relinquish his land at Pakaraka. In 1847 he was joined in this mission by Bishop Selwyn who involved the CMS in the issue. This led to the CMS dismissing Henry from their service in 1849. At the end of May, 1850 Henry left Paihia with his family and took up residence at "Pakaraka" where he remained until his death. Ownership of the land had been transferred to Henry's sons in 1847 and they built him a house named "The Retreat", and from a family endowment, built Trinity Church which was dedicated on 23 April 1851. The property was designated OLC (for Old Land Claim) 54 on Title Deeds. The "Pouerua" block was taken over by Henry Williams jnr about 1847 and the house was built about that time. Edward Marsh Williams, Henry Williams jnr, Samuel Williams and John William Williams all worked at "Pakaraka" during the subsequent years. The sons also owned a boat called The Children, which traded up and down the coast, until it was wrecked in 1857. In 1855 the family were able to buy back from the Government the 4,000 acres which had been deducted from Henry's earlier claim by the Land Commissioner. In 1866 Joseph Marsden Williams farmed the 1,100 acre block known as "Ngaheia" and built a large home there.

A description of the area published in 1884 in the Weekly News describes the estate at that time: "We now reach a bend in the road, about nine miles from Kawakawa, and open upon the very beautiful and fertile plains ofPakaraka, certainly not surpassed in New Zealand. In the distance, guarding, as it were, the plain, rises the extinct volcanic hill ofPakaraka, so named by the Maoris from the peculiar nature of the wide crater being lined with a dense forest ofkaraka tree. To the home visitor, the sudden view of the rich plain before him recalls the view of some pleasant scene in the old country. Here are three gentlemen's handsome, well-built mansions, with a pretty church in the centre, all having the usual adjuncts of our native land - well-fenced, blooming pastures, fine gardens, extensive and well-laid-out shrubberies, with groups of well-remembered trees of old England, oak, elm and sycamore, whilst round the little church is a fine group of towering willows, gracefully bending their weeping foliage over the little graveyard around. These are the residences the Messrs Williams, lords of the soil over some thousands of acres."

During 1886 Thomas Sydney Williams and Henry Edward Williams took over Hansen and Courts' butchery in Kawakawa and supplied meat from "Pakaraka", as a means of selling their produce in a depressed market. In 1891 they tried boring for coal. When 4,000 acres of the "Pakaraka" Estate was sold in 1893, J W Williams, T S Williams and K S Williams left the area. A farther block, "Taratara" was sold to Press in 1894 and in 1903 a farther 4,000 acres was sold to Arthur Close. Two years later the remainder of the Estate was subdivided into farms of between 40 and 400 acres and sold by auction. The Homestead, which was used as a school in the early 1900s, was burnt in 1917, leaving the land to be sold in 1962 to Philip Poore.

Hugh was educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge, then studied Law at Middle Temple, London. After studying classical art in Italy, and travelling for three years, he arrived in Auckland in 1845. He was involved in various trading ventures between New Zealand and Australia and around the Pacific before entering politics. He was elected to the General Assembly in 1853 as representative for the Bay of Islands and served continuously until 1870. He was interested in music and higher education and was a prolific writer. He helped to found the Auckland Choral Society and the University of New Zealand and served as the first Vice-Chancellor of the latter organisation from 1871 to 1878. He was editor of the newspaper, "Southern Cross" and he wrote "A Page from the History of New Zealand" under the pen name ofMetoikos. This was a defence of Henry Williams against the charges of land aggregation being levelled against him at the time. He also wrote "The Life of Henry Williams" in two volumes published in 1874 and 1877. This work was edited and revised by James Elliott in 1948.

Jane, d/o Richard Davis (CMS missionary, 1790-1863) and Mary Cracker 1(1788-1837), d. and bd, at Pukehou. Jane's family were descendants of the Irish family of O'Donnell, Kings of Ireland. Her father landed at Paihia on 15.08.1824 as a missionary |agriculturalist and moved to Waimate in 1831 to establish a farm there. He was ordained (deacon by Bishop Selwyn on 11,06.1843 and moved to Kaikohe Mission Station in 1845. He retired to Waimate in 1854. Edward came to Paihia, Bay of Islands in August 1823 with his missionary parents. He was educated by them and later at the Mission School, Waimate North. He returned to England on HMS "Buffalo" in 1834 to complete his education. He became seriously ill in 1839 and was sent back to New Zealand. With his brother, Samuel, he took over the management of the family farm at Pakaraka. He became a brilliant Maori linguist and an expert in the Ngapuhi dialect. In February 1840 he assisted his father to translate the Treaty ofWaitangi into Maori. Later that year he sailed on HMS "Herald" (under Captain Nias) with Major Bunbury of the 80th Regiment, on a voyage to southern Maori districts where he acted as official interpreter of the Treaty to Maori chiefs. The signatures of the chiefs were witnessed by these three men in Coromandel Harbour, Mercury Bay, Cloudy Bay (near Blenheim), Otakou (Otago), the island ofRuapuke in Fouveaux Strait, Kapiti Island and Hawke's Bay. On this voyage Major Bunbury raised the British flag and declared sovereignty over the South Island in Cloudy Bay on 17 June 1840 and in Stewart Island later that same month. In July 1841 Edward was appointed as a Director of the Australia and New Zealand Bank Ltd, opened in New Zealand in 1840. Later he and Jane settled on part of the family farm at Puketona. The house they built is still lived in today. He took services regularly at Pakaraka and frequently acted as mediator between Maori tribes and between Maori and Pakeha in land disputes. Edward became Resident Magistrate for the Bay of Islands extensive district in 1861. He administered the Runanga (Maori court) system with great skill and fairness (refer "A Show of Fairness" by Dr Alan Ward, pp 137-140) and promoted the establishment of Maori village schools. In 1881 he was appointed a Judge of the Native Land Court and moved to Auckland. He retired in the late 1880's and moved to Pukehou, Hawkes Bay where his brother, Samuel, had built a house for him called "Roxton". Here he translated more than 200 A&M hymns (cont...)

In 1893 Edward and Jane celebrated their Golden Wedding with an immense family gathering. They both lived to celebrate their Diamond Wedding.

Puketona

Located about midway between Pakaraka and Paihia, "Puketona" was owned by Edward Marsh Williams some time after 1842. In 1861 his address was given as "Puketona", so he had built a house there by that time (possibly about

1855). It is possible that his farming operations did not prosper as the New Zealand Herald of 24 April 1871 carried a notice of bankruptcy in connection with the Estate ofEM Williams, Bay of Islands. In 1887 the property was sold to James F Choat.

)1> WILLIAMS, Henry Edward m on 12.11.1872 to CONNELL, Isabelle Annie b 17.12.1843 d 06.12.1923 b 13.08.1847 d 08.06.1917 Henry b. at Puketona (between Paihia and Pakaraka) and d. at Dunedin. Henry trained in surveying and had a family background in administration and law. He is known to have been in Poverty Bay in early November 1868 to discuss loan finance (or surveys or insurance) with settlers. He rode out from Turanga (now Gisborne) to visit Messrs Dodd and Peppard on their run at Repongaere. Their discussion was apparently inconclusive and Henry returned to Turanga and took passage to Auckland. A few days later Dodd and Peppard were murdered in their home by some ofTe Kooti's men on their way to the Poverty Bay Massacre. In 1873 the National Insurance Company was founded with its head office in Dunedin and in June 1875 Henry was appointed their Auckland manager. He was also active in the Church in Auckland and, in September 1881, he was presented with a mantle eight-day clock by Friends of St Sepulchres just prior to his transfer to Dunedin as Manager. In 1885 Henry was sent to San Francisco to resolve some problems for the Company and in 1890, by which time he was Assistant General Manager, he was sent on a similar mission to London. When he returned he assumed the post of General Manager of the Company, and in 1892 this was confirmed. Early in 1914 he intimated to the Board that he proposed to retire but, with the outbreak ofWWl, his retirement was delayed until the end of 1918, by which tune he was aged 75. Henry had given 43 years service to the National Insurance Company, 26 of them as General Manager in Dunedin.

Jane WILLIAMS, Henry Edward and CONNELL, Isabelle Annie WILLIAMS, Claud Herbert and EGERTON, Dorothy Lesley WILLIAMS, Claud Herbert and EGERTON, Dorothy Lesley (cont...) him. He joined the 1st Pembroke Yeomanry and saw 3 years active service as 0/C No 5 Light Car Patrol in the Egyptian Desert. He drove Model T Ford cars which, despite (or because of) their spidery appearance, easily outperformed their rival Rolls-Royce and opposing FLAT cars in the desert. He designed, but failed to patent, a radiator water recovery device that extended their desert range considerably. Partly because of frustration at the lack of military opportunity, Claud was led to undertake a detailed survey of routes, vital water sources and topographical features of the NW Desert of Egypt. He compiled all

of this in great detail into a book which was subsequently published in heavily classified form by and for the British Army, During WW2 this information, to which the Axis forces were not privy, played a pivotal role in the marauding activities of the Long Range Desert Group as well as in General Wavell's attack on Benghazi and General Montgomery's strategy which effectively forced Rommel into retreat and later, rout. Claud held the rank of Captain and was awarded the Military Cross with Bar and the Order of the Nile. He earned a DSO but that award was only available to Majors and above. He later compiled a fall manuscript of his life in the desert as a narrative for publication. It presented this period as the all-time highlight of his life and as a deeply satisfying experience. In his later years he was disappointed at his inability to have it published other than by fiinding it outright, but perhaps he failed to realise that there was a surfeit of such books available at the time. After demobilisation he resumed farming with his brother, Carleton. Perhaps the ultimate measure of his success was the establishment, in coordination with Chris Dodgshun as manager, of a Perendale stud flock at "Coventry". Over these years Claud held various public offices. As a President of the Sheepowners' Federation, he was involved in the amalgamation with the Farmers Union to form the Federated Farmers in

1945. Claud and Lesley were both musical, he playing the violin and she the piano. They retired in 1960 to live at 22 Haronga Road, Gisborne.

Agnes, d/o John William Williams and Sarah Busby.Sydney and Agnes both bd. at Kaharau, Ruatoria. After farming for some years on the Williams family property at Pakaraka, Bay of Islands, Sydney came to Ruatoria, East Coast in 1894. He took over the management of "Tuparoa" station for his uncle, Samuel Williams, then took over the lease from Samuel, retaining it until its expiry in 1914. In 1897 Sydney took up "Pakihiroa" station on his own account. Besides being a successfiil pioneer and developer in his own right, Sydney was more than generous with practical and financial assistance for many of the early Maori and European farmers of the East Coast. His contribution to responsible development to the district was acknowledged by Sir Apirana Ngata in a speech to the House of Representatives in 1915. Sydney served for a number of years on the Waiapu County Council and was also a director of the Gisborne

Publishing Co Ltd. Agnes acted as medical adviser in the district, and was responsible for teaching many young girls of the district the rudiments of good housekeeping. She was renowned for her hospitality to travellers.

ยง Tuparoa The leasehold of the "Tuparoa" block of 20,000 acres was first taken up by Sir George Whitmore. He built the original homestead at Kuhirerere. However, Whitmore did not have the expertise to develop the heavy manuka and tauhina which covered this country, so in 1892, the lease was taken over by Samuel Williams. In 1894 Samuel brought his nephew, Thomas Sydney Williams, from the Bay of Islands to manage "Tuparoa" for him. Thomas accomplished the development of "Tuparoa" in about ten years, and had, by then taken over the lease from Samuel. When Thomas arrived "Tuparoa" was covered in manuka, tauhinu and fern, with no roads or bridges or development of any kind. When he handed it back to Ac owners in 1914 it was all clear grassland and in full production. Included in "Tuparoa" was 400 acres of freehold which Whitmore had acquired. This was known as "Kaharau" and it was here that Thomas built his beautiful homestead. Shortly after the return of "Tuparoa', the Williams family was subjected to criticism in the House of Representatives in connection with their land dealings. In their defence, Sir Apirana Ngata spoke as follows: "I was out of the House when the Honourable Member for Grey Lynn made his speech, but I understand that the burden of his remarks was an attack on the land-owning missionaries of this Dominion, and that special reference was made to the Williams family. I cannot allow these remarks to pass without putting on record an appreciation from the Natives of my district - and I think from the Maori people as a whole - of what the Williams family has done for them. I want to disabuse the minds of the honourable members, as far as my district is concerned, of the impression that the Williams family has obtained large areas of land from the Natives of that district by unfair means or the exercise of undue influence. I think I can say that no land was bought by members of the Williams family direct from the Natives of the Waiapu district, except small sections that were the residue of old purchases that were scattered through the lands owned by the Williamses. I can bear testimony to what the Williamses have done, and their relation to the Natives of the Waiapu County. The Tuparoa Run, the leasehold of which expired a few months ago, was acquired from a member of the Williams family from Colonel Whitmore, who held a lease from the Native owners. In the short time he administered that country he affected vast improvements in it, and it reverted to the Natives in good condition. The Tuparoa Run was something to speak about with a good deal of pride, as showing the good work done on it and the class of farming that was carried out by Mr Thomas Sydney Williams. The Matahiia and Taparoa properties were acquired by the Williams family in the same indirect manner. The only land acquired directly from the Natives by way of lease was the Waipiro Run. It was acquired by Mr J N Williams something like thirty or thirty two years ago."

ยง Kaharau Situated on the main road two miles from Ruatoria, "Kaharau" freehold comprised 300 acres of hill country and 100 acres of flat. in addition to other small areas of leasehold land. "Kaharau" was initially used as a finishing property for stock from "Pakihiroa", and as headquarters for the six eight-horse teams of draught horses which serviced "Pakihiroa". Oats for chafffor the horses were grown on the flats. Both Thomas and his wife, Agnes Lydia, were buried in the garden cemetery of their "Kaharau" home. "Kaharau" was farmed as an (cont...)

Harold had built his "Ngamoe" homestead on the property in 1924 when he married. Harold moved to Gisborne in 1958 when Colin married, by which time Colin had taken over "Kaharau". It was here that Colin established the Kaharau Angus Stud in 1954. An annual sale was held on the property with cattle being sold to most cattle breeding countries in the world. In 1991 "Kaharau" was sold and the Angus Stud was moved to "Coventry" station, just south ofGisborne.

Paldhiroa

In 1897 Thomas Sydney Williams purchased "Pakihiroa" from the Maori owners. Located 18 miles inland from Ruatoria in the upper reaches of the Tuparoa Valley, the property comprised approximately 30,000 acres of heavy virgin bush - rimu, matai, totara and beech - much of it too rugged and steep to develop, and including the mountains, Honokawa and Hikurangi. Nearly 15,000 acres had been developed into grass by 1914 when Thomas lost the lease of "Tuparoa".

"Pakihiroa" was very strong, fertile country with a reliable rainfall and wonderful stock water. It never reverted to manuka. Following WW1 "Pakihiroa" was subdivided into three separate stations. "Raparapaririki", known as "The Rip", was farmed by Oswald Temple Williams, "The Gate" was farmed by Harold Edward Williams on his return from the war, and Eva Temple Burnett (nee Williams) farmed "Pakihiroa". The station was to have been divided into four but Thomas' youngest son, Colin Sydney Williams, was killed in action in France in 1917. In 1963 "Pakihiroa" was bought from Eva and her daughter, Peggie Patience Bannister (nee Burnett), by Colin

Sydney Wallis Williams and his brother, Peter Wallis Williams. In 1969 "The Rip" was purchased by the New Zealand Forest Service for planting, and two years later "The Gate" went the same way. "Pakihiroa" was sold to the Crown in 1985 as a prelude to the subsequent return of Hikurangi, the Sacred Mountain, to the people ofNgati-porou.

He learnt his early farming in Hawkes Bay while working on Nelsons' station near Hastings. While there he helped to plant the poplar avenue at Pakowhai Road. He came to the East Coast in the early 1900's and worked on the "Matengarika" station near Cape Runaway until the property was abandoned. He then went to "Pakira" station as manager. He went to Ruatoria in 1920 to manage "Pakihiroa" station for T S Williams and remained there for 20 years until he retired to live at "Kaharau", Ruatoria. Burnie was a committee member of the Waiapu Racing Club and a founding committee member of the Waiapu Industrial & Pastoral Association. He served on the Waiapu County Council, the Tokomaru Bay Harbour Board and the Waiapu Hospital Board.

Ally d. and bd. at Havelock North. Joseph was raised at "Puketona" at Paihia and became a competent Maori speaker. He managed "Frimley" station for J N Williams for about 20 years. Then, with the help ofJN Williams and J H Coleman, he bought into the run-down "Te Apiti" station. Ally came to New Zealand from Edinburgh at age 15 with her father and sister. She wrote her reminiscences in 1928.

ยง Te Apiti Originally of 14,500 acres, "Te Apiti" station lies towards the coast a few miles north-west ofKairakau in Hawkes Bay. The property was purchased in 1878 by the Beetham brothers, George, Charles and Norman and was managed by Norman for some 18 years. In 1896 the Beethams were joined in partnership by Joseph Heathcote Williams who took over the supervision of the property from his home at Havelock North. He appointed Claud

Herbert Williams as manager and he held the position until 1907. By 1908 J H Williams had completed the acquisition of "Te Apiti" from the Beethams. Following his sudden death in 1910 the property was run under the

trusteeship of Alien Marsh Williams ofTe Aute and Frederick Wanklyn Williams ofNapier. It was managed by Charles Pattison then E Pierce until Richard Sunderland took over in 1916. At that time the Maori leases expired and blocks known as "Waimoana", "Kapiti" and "Kokatawai" were relinquished. The remaining freehold was subdivided into two properties, "Te Apiti" of 3,600 acres and "Waipoapoa" of 2,400 acres. Richard Sunderland continued to run both properties until 1950 when Paul Henry Metcalfe Williams took over the supervision of "Waipoapoa" and "Te Apiti" was taken over by Joe Langdale Sunderland who ran it until his death in 1979.

Descendants of WILLIAMS, Henry and COLDHAM, Marianne WILLIAMS, Edward Marsh and DAVIS, Jane WILLIAMS, Joseph Heathcote and BUCHANAN. Sarah Nidra (Ally) WILLIAMS. Joseph Heathcote and BUCHANAN, Sarah Nidra (Ally) (cont...) "Te Apiti" was divided into two separate properties, "Te Apiti" came into the ownership of Sarah Nidra Williams (nec Buchanan) and her daughters, Violet Maud Williams and Norah Williams and "Waipoapoa" became the property

of Cecil Margaret Williams and Marjorie Williams. Rising steeply from the coast north ofKairakau, "Waipoapoa" was originally the western end of "Te Apiti" station. It runs up to a plateau at an altitude of 2,000 feet and is well known for its heavy rainfall. The name in translation means 'eternal mist'. In 1915 when the Maraetotara Road was extended from Havelock North, a woolshed and other buildings were constructed and "Waipoapoa" was farmed as a separate block of 2,500 acres on behalf of its owners. When Cecil Williams died in 1965 her half share of the property went to her two grandsons, Simon Henry Williams and Robert Euan Williams who sold to the P H M Williams family in 1968. Peter William Gerard Williams and his wife, Mary arrived in 1966 to manage the property. Prior to her death in 1970 Marjorie Mackay had transferred her half share to her sons, Denis Handcock Mackay, Colin Keith Mackay, Brian French Mackay and Peter Buchanan Mackay, and the property was farmed as a partnership of the Williams family and the Mackay brothers. Over the ensuing years each of the Mackay brothers sold his share to Peter Williams, the last sale being in 1991.

ยง Cricklewood Located south-west ofWairoa, "Cricklewood" station was farmed by H L Donnelly from 1895 to 1907 when it was sold to William Richmond ofTomoana, Hawkes Bay. At that time about 10,000 acres had been sown in grass and about 1,500 acres was still in virgin bush. Richmond held the property for only a year and in 1908 it was transferred in equal shares to Mrs Dorothy Wordsworth Sunderland, Violet Maud Williams, Norah Williams, Cecily Margaret Williams and Marjorie Williams. In 1911 CM Williams transferred her share to Frederick Wanklyn Williams of Napier and Alien Marsh Williams ofTe Aute. In 1912 V M Williams transferred her share to Alien Douglas Williams of "Clareinch" and Claud Herbert Williams ofMuriwai. In 1915 Marjorie Williams transferred her share to Arnold Beetham Williams ofWaipiro Bay and Edward Heathcote Williams of Hastings. In 1916 Norah, Frederick W, Alien M, Arnold B, Edward H and Claud H Williams all transferred their shares to Sarah Nidra Williams (nec Buchanan), widow ofJH Williams. "Cricklewood" was then owned by S N Williams and D W Sutherland and was later sold to Humphrey May Bayley ofGisborne in 1917.

Alfred's childhood home was Puketona between Paihia and Pakaraka. On completion of his secondary education he attended Bishop Suter's Theological

College in Nelson. His uncle Samuel Williams then paid for him to go to Ridley Hall, Cambridge where he prepared for ordination. He went several times to stay with his great-aunt Catherine Heathcote (nec Williams) at Southwell, Nottinghamshire where she owned a boarding school for 'young ladies'. Here he met and fell in love with a music teacher, Alice Gaster. They were married in 1881 when Alfred was a curate at All Saints Church, Nelson. In 1883 they moved to Gisborne where Alfred (who was a good Maori linguist) assisted his cousin, Archdeacon

William Leonard Williams, to establish Te Rau Theological College for Maori ordinands. In 1885 they moved to the Mission House at Putiki, Wanganui where Alfred took charge of the Maori Mission work for the whole Wanganui River district. In 1905 he was appointed Superintendent of Maori Mission work throughout the five Maori Pastorates of the Wellington Diocese but he continued to live at Putiki until 1913 when they moved to 115 Liverpool Street, Wanganui, and his eldest son, Wilfrid became Superintendent of the Maori Mission in his place. Alfred, who had been made Honorary Canon of Wellington Cathedral, retired in 1920. He continued to help with the Christian ministry in Wanganui and Putiki. He died from pneumonia after catching a severe chill and is buried in Aramoho Cemetery, Wanganui.

Two years later they moved to the Mission House at Putiki, Wanganui and here Wilfrid spent the whole of his boyhood. He attended Wanganui Collegiate School and won prizes in Latin and Greek. In 1902 he enrolled at Canterbury University College to smdy for his BA degree. During his vacations he worked long hours on a dairy farm, milking some 30-40 cows by hand twice a day. In this way he paid for his boarding fees at College House, a residential college for ordination candidates. While at University he won, in 1903, an Exhibition in Natural Science. He also became treasurer of the newly-formed Australasian Christian Union in 1905. In 1906 his great-uncle, Samuel Williams, paid for him to go to Ridley Hall, Cambridge to complete his theological studies. Here he won the Cambridge Divinity Testimonium. He continued his interest in botany

during the long vacations by making a study of (a) the wild flowers of Switzerland and (b) the wild flowers of Iceland. He worked his way to and from Iceland on a British trawler. Wilfrid was ordained deacon in 1908 and for the next two years he was curate at St James', Hatcham, London. Here he was ordained priest in 1909. Like his father, he was a frequent visitor to Southwell and here he met Madeline Chalk, a first cousin, as her mother, Agnes Gaster, was a sister ofWilfrid's mother, Alice. The couple were married in 1910 and sailed for New Zealand soon afterwards. Wilfrid became vicar of the Wanganui Parochial District which included Turakina, Wangaehu, Mangamahu, Fordell and Upokongaro. The vicarage was at Matarawa and they covered their big district in a horse-drawn open trap. An accident with the trap resulted in their first child, a daughter, being still-born. In 1913 Wilfrid, who spoke Maori fluently, was appointed Superintendent of the Maori Mission in the Wellington Diocese, and came to live in Wanganui. During the 1914-18 war he often took services in the Mangaweka, Hunterville, Ohingaiti and Kawhatau district in addition to his Maori Mission work. He travelled great distances in all weathers on a Douglas motorbike.

In 1918 the church at Koriniti on the Wanganui River was destroyed by the Raetihi fire. Wilfrid played an active part in building a new church in 1919 which is still in use today. In 1925 he assisted in the building of a Mission House at Koriniti as a home for a missionary nurse. Sister Beswick pioneered this

work and was followed in 1930 by Sister Elsie. The latter worked indefatigably for the next thirty years riding or walking or canoeing great distances to attend patients, She was awarded the CBE. Wilfrid was the one who saw the need for this and similar projects. In the 1930's he, together with Sir Apirana Ngata, began to plan the building of a new church at Putiki which would be truly representative of Maori worship. He worked tirelessly to raise money for this and was fully supported by the first Bishop of Aotearoa, the (cont...)

Maurice was educated at Hurworth Preparatory School, Wanganui and Wanganui Collegiate School. Here he excelled at swimming and rowing and he continued to row with the E* j Wanganui Rowing Club after he left school in 1931. Because of the depression he had to teke an uncongenial post as junior clerk in Kempthorne Prosser's town office. In 1937 he secured a position as a car salesman with the Merewether Garage. But his heart had always been set on flying. New Zealand had no Air Force so in 1935 his father cashed in Maurice's life insurance policy and gave him the 400 Pounds to go to England. He joined the RAP as an 'erk' or unqualified airman and trained for three years as a bomber pilot. He was commissioned as a Flying Officer in 1939. Along with several other New Zealand pilots who had trained in the RAP, he was to return to New Zealand to form the nucleus of a Bomber Squadron in the newly-established RNZAF. However, when war with Germany was declared they were kept in England 'on loan' to the RAF to form the nucleus of No 75 (NZ) Bomber Squadron flying Wellington bombers. Between then and the middle of 1942 Maurice completed 51 bombing sorties over Germany. He was awarded the DFC in 1941 and was twice mentioned in despatches for showing exceptional skill and courage for carrying out raids in spite of intense enemy anti-aircraft fire. At the end of his second series of 'ops' he was assigned to train a number of Czecho-Slovakian airmen as bomber pilots. For this he was awarded the Czech War Cross by President (in exile) Benes. On completion of his third series of 'ops' he was sent to New Zealand in mid 1942 to take charge of reconnaissance flying at RNZAF Headquarters in Auckland. He was joined here by his wife and three year old son. In June 1943 he was transferred to Ohakea as Commanding Officer of a Bomber Training Squadron and was killed there in a flying accident.

Arthur (Ata Wiremu) b. at Waimate, Bay of Islands, d. at Hastings and bd. at Pukehou. Leslie b. at Cheltenham, England, d. at Hastings, cremated and ashes scattered in the garden at Pukehou. Arthur was educated at the Church of England Grammar School, Auckland, St John's

College and Ridley Hall, Cambridge (BA, 1883). At Cambridge he rowed for Lady Margaret Boat Club in their first boat. He was ordained in 1884 and spent his life working amongst the Maori. He came to Te Aute straight from his Curacy in England and worked with his uncle, Archdeacon Samuel Williams, until 1907. He became the Archdeacon's successor in charge of all Maori Mission work in the Diocese ofWaiapu. He spoke Maori from infancy. Leslie was the daughter of Leslie Thompson, one of three brothers who came out to South Canterbury in 1854 with their maiden aunt, Jeanie Collier, who took up runs 35 and 36 comprising 57,000 acres between the Hook and Otaio Rivers and the Hunter Mills near Timaru. She farmed successfully until her death in 1861 when the property passed to her nephews. Leslie was a trained nurse midwife and used her skills over a wide area around Pukehou, travelling to patients by horse and buggy. She managed to do this and raise her family largely on her own as Arthur was often away from home for long periods of time. After Arthur's death, when she was 73, her old home at Te Aute burnt down and she moved to Havelock North where she successfully re-established her life around her.

A Clerk in Holy Orders, Ernest had been educated at Clifton College and Balliol College, Oxford and had been a Senior Chaplain to the Forces, winning a DSO on the Somme and the MC at Passchendale, and the Italian Croce Merito di Guerra on the Piave in Italy. Appointed Headmaster of Christ's College in 1921, he fell out with the Board of Governors because he complained that the boys were being trained to be 'little gladiators' instead of learning Latin. Banished to Waihi Preparatory School, he resigned and returned to England. After a term as Chaplain to Shrewsbury College, he was appointed in 1933 Headmaster ofArdingly College, Sussex. Although the school had been in debt for ten years when he took over, he left it with twice the enrolment and a ten year waiting list. Despite its location between London and the South Coast, he never evacuated, and Ardingly remained, during WW2, the English boarding school closest to the German lines. Retiring in 1946, he became Rector of HenIey-on-Thames and started their annual Regatta Service. Prebend ofHighfield and Canon ofChichester Cathedral, he was Rector ofGlyndebourne, Firle and Beddingham at the time of his death. Joyce continued to live at Glyndebourne for some years before returning to Ardingly. Later she moved to the Norwich Cathedral Close, Norfolk where she was active in the painting community. A fine water colour artist, she exhibited at the Royal Water Colour Society and earned her first penny teaching art when she was 80 years old.

Descendants of WILLIAMS, Henry and COLDHAM, Marianne WILLIAMS, Marianne and DAVIES. Christopher Pearson 02> WILLIAMS, Man'annem on 09.02.1843 to DAVIES, Chnstopher Pearson b 28.04.1820 d 25.11.1919 b 12.05.1811 d 02.03.1861 Marianne b. at Cheltenham, England, m. at Paihia, Bay of Islands and d. at Napier. Christopher, s/o George and Catherine Davies, b. at London, England, bap. on 22.05.1811 at St Marylebone's Church, Marylebone, London and d. at Paihia. Christopher commenced study at Trinity College, Dublin with a view to entering the service of the Church Missionary Society but ill-health caused him to abandon the course. From August 1833 to June 1834 he managed the pharmaceutical establishment ofDr Phelan and William Malone at Clonmel, County Cork. He then began his studies for the medical profession; from 1836 to 1838 at

the Cork School of Physic and Surgery; then from 1839 to 1840 at the Cork School of Anatomy, Medicine and Surgery; the Cork Institute and Hospital for the Care of Pregnant Women and the Treatment of Illnesses of Women and Children and The Cork North Infirmary. In 1841 he spent three months at the School of Medicine of the Apothecaries Hall.

Soon afterwards he sailed for New Zealand and arrived early in 1842 on the Kiti Kiti from Sydney. He set up practice as a surgeon in Kororareka and immediately took steps to fulfil his ambition to join the Church Missionary Society. He consulted with Bishop Selwyn, Henry Williams, William Williams, Alfred Brown and the Secretary of the Parent Committee. At the same time he sought the hand of Marianne Williams. Jane Williams wrote to say that she and William "were much pleased with him... he is a very decided character and clever in his profession". Henry also approved of him but wrote to A N Brown to say that "The young man is rather urgent in his demands and wants to carry her off earlier than we approve. We think about the commencement of the year. " Christopher was accepted as a catechist and he and Marianne moved to Waimate where Marianne, with the help of Christopher and Elizabeth Colenso, took over responsibility for the Infant School. In September 1844 Christopher was ordained a Deacon at the Waimate Mission Station in the same ceremony that Henry Williams and Alfred Brown were inducted as Archdeacons. Soon afterwards he and Marianne moved to Te Papa Station at Tauranga where, for the next seven years, he assisted Archdeacon Brown. His pastoral duties included extensive and arduous travel throughout the district to Matamata, Maungatautari, Rotorua, Thames and Taupo. In 1852 Christopher and his family transferred to Opotiki to take over the station established by John Wilson. His work there also involved him in regular visitations to pas and villages as far east as Raukokore and inland to Te Whaiti and Waimana. During his frequent absences, responsibility for the Boarding School rested with Marianne. Christopher's health continued to deteriorate and in 1856 he left Opotiki for Auckland to seek medical advice. The advice was that he should leave Opotiki and move with his family to Paihia. This was nine years before the Rev Volkner was killed at Opotiki by the Hau Haus. He continued his missionary and

medical work until his death in 1861. After the death of her mother, Anna Hutton lived with the Davies for some time. She related to her grandchildren how Christopher had a big bell on the roof of his house which was rung if a patient needed to see the doctor whilst he was out on his rounds. It could be heard from a great distance but, if the doctor did not hear it himself, someone would pass the message on to him.

Rose Alma, d/o the Rev D R Godfrey MA(Oxon) and a "double first" of Queen's College, Oxford, Rector of Stow Bedon, Norfolk, and Rural Dean. George was educated at the school run by his mother and grandmother and at the Church of England Grammar School, Auckland under Dr Kinder. His early education included not only studying the Bible, but memorising much of it. At least one member of his family believed he may have regretted turning down Bishop Suter's request to seriously consider ordination. In late life he often used to walk several miles from his Karori home to Matthias Makara to take the Sunday evening service.

In 1872 he joined the Government Service in Wellington as an interpreter, He had previously acted for some years in this capacity in the Bay of Islands and was licensed by the Government as an interpreter. Upon the promotion of Mr T E Young to the position of judge of the Native Land Court, George became a translator, When Sir Donald McLean was Native Minister, George frequently accompanied him on his journeys in a confidential capacity. He retired in 1907. He taught his sons to speak and write Maori - but not the daughters lest they understood some of the unedifying language heard outside the city pubs. He and Rose Alma would entertain Maori leaders and received gifts from them, including Maori cloaks. He displayed a keen interest in local affairs and was a member of the Karori School Committee for a number of years. As a chess player he was one of the original members of the Wellington Chess Club and was selected to play in inter-provincial matches. (cont...)

George was recognised as a poet, raconteur and wit and an enthusiastic follower ofrugby football. He was also reputed to know the entire history of the Welsh Fusiliers off by heart. The Free Lance recorded that when Wales defeated the All Blacks in 1905 he drew a widely-circulated cartoon of the Billy-Goat of Wales knocking out the Moa of New Zealand. The picture carried the caption, "Nec moa terrent" (not even the moas alarm us); giving a new twist to the motto of the Welsh Fusiliers, "Nec aspera terrent" (not even difficulties frighten us). Rose was actively involved in the affairs of St Mary's Church, Karori.

Edith remembered meeting most of Henry and William Williams' children, and at the 1973 Reunion she was the oldest living descendant present. When she was very young she remembered travelling with Samuel Williams in a horse and trap and him singing at the top of his voice, "What a friend I have in Jesus....", then at the marae,

a

'taking off his jacket and leaping around with the Maoris'. She also visited the

Hukarere great aunts. Edith grew up in Karori, Wellington where she spent most of her 86 years. Her early education was from a governess with the cousins ofKatherine Mansfield, the Waters children, followed by Miss Thornton's School at Napier (Miss Thornton's brother was headmaster at Te Aute College). There she received a lady-like education with great emphasis on deportment, promenading with a book balanced on her head, and learning how to get into and out of carriages.

At university she became Women's Vice-President of the Students' Association, editor of the literary magazine, "Spike", co-author (with Harold Miller) of a capping extravaganza called "Shakleton Out-shacked", and founder of a University Women's Club. On one occasion the feature of the evening was a 30-a-side rugby match and an amazing scrum, the players with their long skirts tucked into their bloomers! They had locked themselves in the gym so there would be no male intruders, who were, no doubt, curious about the shrieks, yells and bumps, Her holidays were spent relaxing with cousins in Hawkes Bay or in a painting class with D Richmond. In 1919 she lectured in English at Victoria University and in 1923, after three years as headmistress of Archerfield, Dunedin, she sailed to England, and stayed with her cousin, Mabel's family at Christ Church, Oxford. Mabel's husband, Samuel Driver, was Regius professor of Hebrew and Canon of Christchurch. She married Harold at Cambourne, Cornwall, and Dorothy Williams (grand-daughter of Samuel Williams) was a bridesmaid. After a long honeymoon in Europe, they returned to New Zealand, spent three years in Timaru, then in 1928 they returned to Karori where they raised three children, and an enterprising organic garden. In the 1950's Edith became a Companion of the Community of the Resurrection at Mirfield, England, and in the late sixties she was influenced by Charismatic Renewal. She enrolled in the Faith Bible correspondence course, "Knowing God in His Word" by Milton Smith, and her Vicar, Edward Norman (later Bishop of Wellington) said, "Mrs Miller, if you speak in tongues we will have to get Dr Miller to interpret". Harold was educated at Masterton District High School and Victoria University College. He was a Jacob Joseph Scholar and a Rhodes Scholar and attended Baliol College, Oxford where he studied in the School of Politics, Economics and Philosophy. He graduated MA in Philosophy in 1920 and conferred with an HonLittD at Victoria University in 1966. Harold was a lecturer at Wellington Teachers' College (1924), Workers' Education Association tutor South Canterbury (1925-27), and librarian at Victoria University, Wellington (1928-66). He was awarded a Carnegie

Fellowship to Ann Arbor University, Michigan in 1931 and in 1962 he was a Visiting Fellow at the Australian National University. He was a Fellow of the NZ Library Association (FNZLA). He served on the Wellington Diocesan Synod (1944-66) and the General Synod (1951-71). Harold's interests shifted to the field of history. In 1958 he spent nine months in Europe, mainly France, furthering his interest in the beginnings of Christian civilisation in Western Europe. He had a special interest in the early days of European settlement in New Zealand. Because of his special relationship with Edith, he changed from being a critic of the Williams family to being one of their most ardent supporters. This led to a study of New Zealand missionaries and to his life-long interest in Maori-Pakeha relations.

Oakbourae

In 1852 John Davis Canning purchased "Oakbourne", a property of 2,000 acres at Porangahau. He later increased this to 8,000 acres freehold and 32,000 acres of Maori lease. Following his death in 1883 the property was leased to John White from 1885 until 1905. In 1906 Davis Canning returned to "Oakbourne", after rebuilding the homestead which had been destroyed by fire the previous year. He introduced Romney and Lincoln crossbred sheep and put 1,500 ewes to Southdown rams for fat lambs, a farther 5,000 ewes being run with pure Romneys. He had a herd of 300 Shorthorn cows and obtained bulls from Samuel Williams' stud at "Te Aute". He also bred Clydesdale draught horses and had a Shetland pony stud. He planted an orchard of 600 fmit trees and exported several hundred cases of fruit each season. He increased the wool clip

from 150 bales in 1904 to 240 bales in 1912 and in the same year he bought out the share of his brother, Charles, After his death the station was reduced to 4,700 acres, the Maori leases having expired earlier. "Oakbourne" was run by managers until 1924 when Davis (Peter) Canning took over and ran the property for

the trustees (K S Williams and later, A B Williams) until it was split up in 1939. Peter started his own Romney stud in 1932 based on six ewes and a ram given to him by A B Williams on the proviso that, if he ever had an outstanding ram, he would give it to A B W. In 1956 he bred a ram that was champion at Hawkes Bay and Palmerston North shows. He offered it to A B W and was relieved when it was not accepted. Peter

sold the Clydesdale stud in 1935 and purchased a Caterpillar 22 tractor that is still going today. In 1939 "Oakbourne" was divided between the four brothers, John Davis (Jack) Canning, Davis (Peter) Canning, Walmsley Canning and Robert Alexander Canning. During World War 2 Peter Canning again managed "Oakbourne" while his brothers served in the Armed Forces. After Jack Canning's death, his farm was managed for his daughters, Dianna Marion Poore (nec Canning) and Elizabeth Barrett Muspratt (nec Canning). It is now owned and farmed by James Canning Muspratt, who has introduced deer to his enterprise. Walmsley and Mary Canning retired at Kerikeri and had a manager on their farm. Robert and Fan Canning are retired and living on "Oakbourne" and their farm is managed by their son, Davis Charles Canning.

Descendants of WILLIAMS, Henry and COLDHAM, Mananne WILLIAMS. Samuel and WILLIAMS, Mary 03> WILLIAMS, Samuel m on 30.09.1846 to WILLIAMS, Mary b 17.01.1822 d 14.03.1907 b 21.04.1826 d 24.11.1900 Samuel b. at Hampstead, England and d. at Te Aute. Mary, d/o William Williams and Jane Neslon, Samuel was educated at the mission schools at Paihia and Waimate. In 1836 he took over his father's farm at Pakaraka until 1844 when he entered St John's College, Waimate, to prepare for holy orders. When the college moved to Tamaki he became senior bursar and assisted with the administration of the College farm and finances. He was ordained deacon in 1846, ten days before his marriage. In 1847 Samuel was appointed to take charge of the Otaki mission during the illness ofOctavius Hadfield. There he organised an extensive educational establishment including boarding accommodation for 100 Maori boys, and a mission farm. Impressed with his work at Otaki, Samuel was requested by Governor Grey to setup a Maori school in Hawke's Bay. The move to Te Aute took place in 1854. An estate comprising some 7,000 acres was created from Government grants and land donated by Te Hapuku and others, and entrusted to the Bishop of New Zealand. The administration of the estate was vested in a board of trustees with Samuel being given power of attorney. The school was opened in 1854 with twelve pupils, but closed again in 1859 due to shortage of funds, and the effects of a ruinous fire. Samuel then concentrated on developing the farm to provide a permanent source of income with which to assist with the funding of the school. During the early 1860s, using his own funds, then borrowing heavily, he cleared and fenced the land, and increased stock numbers. In 1869 Samuel sought to retain control over the management of the estate by leasing it from the trust. The lease was renewed in 1878, 1892 and 1903 with appropriate increases in rental, but Samuel was forced to defend his position against those who criticised the granting of private leases over educational trust land. However his stewardship was subsequently vindicated by a Royal Commission held in 1906. The College reopened in 1872 and concentrated on developing a high level of academic instruction. Samuel also played a role in the establishment of a Maori girls' school at Hukarere, Napier in 1875. Samuel was a fluent Maori speaker and wide knowledge of Maori culture. He had respect for their customs and a sympathy with their aspirations and fought tirelessly for their rights and their advancement. During the Hauhau uprising he challenged their beliefs in open debate and provided a stabilising influence on the unsettled Maori community of the time. To his family, Samuel is remembered as a benefactor who guided and assisted many of his relatives in the purchase and establishment of pastoral holdings in the Hawke's Bay and East Coast districts. When he died in 1907 he left an estate valued at 429,566 Pounds.

ยง Wairakaia Station In the 1860s J Woodbine Johnson arrived in the Poverty Bay and started farming at Muriwai south of Gisborne. He was getting the "Wairakaia" station established when Te Kooti escaped from the Chatham Islands and landed on 10 July 1868 at Whareongaonga about 9 km south ofJohnson's home. By the time of his death about 1898, Johnson had freeholded an area in excess of 10,000 acres most of which was broken in and farmed. In about 1904 his trustees (Johnson's brother, Randall and Cyril White who was the grandfather of June Katherine White, wife of Philip James Murphy) offered "Wairakaia" for sale (part of the property, including Young Nick's Head, had been sold earlier). On the instigation ofArchdeacon Samuel Williams, the property was inspected by his wife's nephew, Heathcote Beetham Williams and purchased for subdivision. Claud Herbert Williams bought "Coventry" and his brother, Henry Carleton Williams took the next block, "Sherwood". The adjoining block to the south was purchased by Muriel Buchanan Faulkner (nec Williams) and retained the name, "Wairakaia" and her husband, Albert Joseph Faulkner took the next block which became known as "Waihina". The fifth block was taken over by Gerald Kemp who was head shepherd at Te Aute and a family friend and was named "Maraetaha". In 1983 "Coventry" was subdivided between Kenneth Christopher Dodgshun, his son, David Christopher Dodgshun and the

remainder was retained by the family of Claud Herbert Williams. In 1989 this part was bought by Colin Sydney Wallis Williams when he moved his Kaharau Angus Stud from Ruatoria. In 1946 Terence Leslie Carleton Williams became a partner in "Sherwood" and in 1977 this block was subdivided between his sons Andrew Carleton (Dan) Williams, Timothy Nolan Williams, retaining the name of "Sherwood" and John Terence Williams who named his block "Puta Awa". "Wairakaia" was taken over by Frederick Edward Faulkner and passed on in turn to his son, Rodney George Faulkner. (cont...)

Gerald Kemp died about 1920 and "Maraetaha" was bought by Enid Constance Murphy (nec Williams). After World War 2 this property was divided between their sons, Selwyn Robert Murphy and Philip James Murphy. More recently Selwyn's block, known as "Mapiri" has gone to his daughter. Sally Vera Trafford (nee Murphy) and her husband Hugh Trafford. Philip's place, "Tararau' was taken over by his son, Jonathan Robert Murphy and in the late 1980s it was sold. Part was bought by Rodney George Faulkner, part by Sally and Hugh Trafford and a third part was sold out of the family.

Te Aute Station

ยง

Te Aute station was closely connected in its early years with the management of the Te Aute College Endowment lands. However, as a freehold property, it began with the purchase by Samuel Williams in 1874 of the 1,600 acre "Pukekura" block from William Douglas. In 1867 a disastrous flood had caused the Waipawa River to burst its banks, flooding the surrounding lands. Samuel Williams devised a scheme to dam the river back into its original course in order that these lands might be farmed, In order to do this he bought 3,567 acres comprising the Roto-a-tara lake and surrounding swamp from the Maori owners, Honi Waikato and Puketutu (the only time he ever bought land direct from the Maori), and 1,300 acres from W

Rathbone, which bordered the Waipawa river. After the completion of the 500 yard long (20 ft high in one place) dam in the 1880s, both lake and swamp were able to be drained and the land farmed as "Te Aute" station. The dam

still holds today, For many years (1875-1907) "Te Aute" was managed by Alien Marsh Williams. When Samuel died in 1907 it was then subdivided into four properties named "Drumpeel", "Penlee", "Kutere" and "Te Aute". The "Te Aute" block was

inherited by William Temple Williams and farmed by him from 1907 to 1928. On his death in 1928 the "Te Aute" freehold land was cut in two with the "Pukekura" block of about 1,600 acres being inherited by his two daughters, Dorothy Frances Jackson (nec Williams) and Esther Margarita Avery (nec Williams). The 1,600 acre "Te Aute" homestead area passed to his sons, Charles Athol Williams and Samuel Roy Williams. In 1930 C A and S R Williams sold the property to their wives Mary Russell Williams (nec Burr) and Bessie Joyce Williams (nec Burr). The Roto-a-Tara Land Company bought 785 acres in 1935 and 240 acres was sold in 1947 to F A Hull. C A Williams managed the property until 1948 when management was taken over by his son-in-law, James Nelson Maclean. In 1977 his son, Malcolm James Maclean, took over management, the property finally being sold out of the family in 1989. "Drumpeel" was acquired by Alien Marsh Williams in 1907. It was farmed by his son, Edward Gordon Williams from 1908 until 1946 when it was taken over by his son, David Empson Williams. It was sold out of the family in 1964. "Penlee" was inherited by Lucy Frances Warren (nec Williams). It was farmed for her by her son, Greville Williams Warren from 1925. It was subdivided in 1954 into two blocks, "Penlee" and "Kahotea" and the "Penlee" block was taken over by Greville's son, Geoffrey John Warren in 1961. The farm was sold out of the family in 1981. "Kahotea" Farm comprises 720 acres of which 564 acres was subdivided from "Penlee" station for Mary Williams McBain (nec Warren) and was initially managed by Geoffrey John Warren. In subsequent years 80 acres was acquired from "Drumpeel" station and 76 acres from "Kutere" station. The farm contains 300 acres of the fertile arable land created when Archdeacon Samuel Williams drained Lake Roto-a-tara about 1885. The farm is named after Kahotea Pa which is on the property and overlooks what used to be Lake Roto-a-tara. "Kahotea" has been farmed by Hugh McBain

since 1974 and is now the only remaining part ofTe Aute still being farmed by a member of the Williams Family. "Kutere", 200 acres, was inherited in 1907 by Canon Arthur Frederick Williams and farmed by his son, Brian Leslie Williams until his death in 1979. It was taken over by his son-in-law, Royston Hereaitirangi Seymour. Part was sold to "Kahotea" in 1980 and the remainder was sold out of the family in 1986.

ยง St Lawrence When Edward Curling took up 16,500 acres lying east ofOtane in 1852, the property was known as "Te Kopanga". He died in 1868 leaving the station to his brother, Robert Curling, a solicitor in London. By 1885 Robert's son, Sumner Curling had inherited the property and changed its name to "St Lawrence". In 1901 Samuel Williams

established the Henry and William Williams Memorial Trust with an initial gift of ยฃ98,000. He purchased the 13,413 acre "St Lawrence" station as a means of providing the Trust with a continuing income. George Alexander Williams was appointed as manager. In 1912 the property, excepting the homestead block of 3,000 acres, was leased on Glasgow type leases for 21 years with right of renewal. On the death of G A Williams in 1938 his son, Richard Dow Williams was appointed manager. In 1964 "St Lawrence" developed from extensive to intensive farming and was divided into two blocks. One, named "Paihia", was managed by F B Tombleson and the other by D F Smith. By 1970 stock numbers had increased from 3,000 to 10,300 ewes and to 570 head of cattle. In 1974 the Trust sold its reversionary interests in all but one of the leasehold properties and purchased a 744 acre property at Patoka.

Lucy b. at Te Aute, m. at Te Aute by her Uncle, Bishop Leonard Williams, d. at Hastings and bd. at Pukehou Cemetery. Jack b. at Stike Damerel, Devon and d. and bd. at Pukehou. After Lucy's death, Jack remarried on 30.03.1927 to Elsie Grace Rendall, who had been Matron of Royston Private Hospital in Hastings. Jack's father had been a naval draftsman who died when Jack was aged 11, and his mother struggled to bring up the family. Jack trained with a merchant firm for six years then spent six years in Australia where he worked at sheep farming, surveying and tutoring. He then travelled for a Bordeaux wine merchant (he spoke French fluently) before arriving aged 31 in New Zealand, with a letter of introduction to Mrs Lowry of Okawa. He and Lucy were married five years later and they lived for the next ten years in Wellington, where Jack had established an unport-export business. In 1906 they moved, with their three children, to Hawkes Bay for Jack to assist Lucy's father, Archdeacon Samuel Williams, with the administration ofTe Aute College, and his farming interests. However, the Archdeacon died the following year. In 1914 the family went to England, where, for the duration of the war, Lucy worked at a canteen and social centre for New Zealand soldiers at Hornchurch, Essex. Although over-age, Jack, using the skills developed in voluntary military training in New Zealand, gained a temporary commission as Major in the Royal Field Artillery, and served in the Home Service; as a Battery Commander in France; and, for several months, as Director of the Allies' Hospital atYvetot in France. They returned to New Zealand in 1920. Samples of Lucy's wood carving, and Jack's beaten copper work, resulting from training at night classes in Wellington, can be seen in the old Penlee House (now Langton House) at Pukehou. Lucy was a good pianist, and needlewoman, producing fine embroidery, smocking and church frontals.

For 36 years, from March 1925, he managed "Penlee" station, a family sheep and cattle property near Pukehou, before retiring to Havelock North in 1961. Norah completed her education in Sydney, being admitted to the Degree of Bachelor of Arts, and later attended Oxford University where she was awarded a Diploma in Education. She loved travelling and languages. It was while she was teaching at Woodford House, Havelock North that she became engaged to Greville. Greville was a Synod representative for 11 years, a long term Vestry member and a Lay Reader. He became a member of the Te Aute College Trust Board in 1951, and helped to steer the College through major development stages until he resigned in 1975. He was a member of the Waipawa Hospital Board for 25 years, 15 of them as Deputy Chairman. His main responsibilities were the Waipukurau Hospital and the Pukeora Sanatorium. He was also a long-time member of the Hem'y and William Williams Trust, and a Justice of the Peace.

Greville was a very experienced and talented wood and metal turner. His fully equipped turning and gear

cutting lathe was bought new in 1936 for sixteen Pounds, being originally intended for a British ship that was never built. Between the wars keen fishermen from the Williams family used to camp together under canvas each year near Turangi and fish the Tongariro and surrounding rivers. Greville regularly joined the group, which often numbered as many as 30 men.

Waipari Station Waipari is part of what was the 21,000 acre Mangakuri Station owned by Archdeacon Sam Williams (refer entry for James Nelson Williams in this book, and p 212 of "Samuel Williams ofTe Aute" by Sybil Woods). The original station extended from Kairakau Beach in the North to almost as far south as Pourere Beach. The original 16-stand woolshed built in 1883 is still in use on Waipari.

The Waipari block of 5,225 acres was split off for Lucy Frances Warren (nee Williams) in the early 1900s and was later left to Lucy's sons, Alwyn and Greville and farmed by them in partnership. In 1961, 2,040 acres known as Pukerangi was split off for Greville's family. Waipari is now 1,278 ha (3,200 acres) and is owned by the Warren family and farmed by Mark. It is operated as a diverse agribusiness, running 10,000 stock units and including 210 ha of forestry. Mark has diversified the land use by producing branded bottled mineral water with the plant on site as well as a 4WD training course on 20 acres.

He acquired large pastoral holdings in the Wairarapa which he owned in partnership with his father-in-law, William Beetham. He also had a wide range of other business and pastoral interests. He became well known for his many letters to the newspapers of the day on a wide variety of topics. In 1910 he retired to Cintra, his home in Auckland.

"A Letter to the Right Hon W E Gladstone, Being an Appeal on Behalf of the Ngatiraukawa Tribe", J Hughes,

Wellington (1873). "A Page From the History of a Record Reign", McKee & Co, Wellington (1899). This was written in reply to an article in the New Zealand Times of 3rd July 1899 regarding '..most serious charges against certain old Missionaries, now dead and gone...'

Bibliography "They Came to Wydrop", by David Yerex. Published by Hugh Beetham and Tom Williams.

ยง Brancepeth and Te Parae The Beetham family arrived at Wellington at the end of 1855 and two years later they and the Rev Button took up the lease of a 12,000 acre block of land near Masterton. Following his marriage to Aime Palmer Beetham, Thomas Coldham Williams entered a partnership with the Beethams to develop their property. TC (as he was known) provided finance

to freehold the original block and to develop and expand the area of their holdings. By 1888 the holdings of the partnership comprised "Brancepeth" and "Annedale" with a total area of 66,506 acres and running 80,500 head of stock. The partnership continued until 1903 when it was broken up in the proportion of two thirds to TC and his family and one sixth each to William and Hugh Beetham. TC's share comprised "Annedale", "Kumukumu", "Te Parae", "Mamaku", "Rawhiti", "Poroporo", "Patukawa" and "Longridge". This he divided amongst his thirteen children, with his sons receiving equal amounts, which were one-quarter greater than those received by his daughters. Hugh George Williams inherited "Kumukumu" and appointed Bernard Westmorland as manager. The property subsequently went to his sons, Garthowen Williams and Morvyn (Tim) Williams. Garth had little interest in farming and his share was bought by Tim, who also purchased "Ngatawhai" station. The property is now owned by Philippa Therese Williams (nec

Riddiford). Algar Temple Williams inherited "Longridge" and sold it out of the family shortly afterwards. "Mamaku" was taken over by Erl Temple Williams and later passed to his son, Peter Temple Williams. "Annedale" was bequeathed to TC's five daughters, Elfie Clare Williams, Maude Mary Aime Williams, Hilda Temple Williams, Eila Mabel Williams and Una Mildred Williams. Shortly after WW2 approx 14,000 acres of "Annedale" was acquired by the Government under the Rehabilitation Scheme. The homestead block comprising approx 3,300 acres was later sold to

James William Blyth. "Rawhiti" (1,200 acres) went to Ethel Alice Russell (nec Williams) and Enid Githa Fergusson (nec Williams) received "Patukawa" (1,000 acres). Guy Coldham Williams inherited "Te Parae" and then leased both "Patukawa" and "Rawhiti" from his sisters. Guy's elder daughter, Barbara Hope Deans (nec Williams) inherited "Katatane" station and his younger daughter Joan Elfie Dillon inherited "Wiremu". Te Parae" was later taken over by Alister Coldham Williams and he also purchased "Potaerau" near Masterton, which he renamed "Little Avondale". These properties are now farmed in partnership by his sons, Thomas Coldham Williams and Richard Alister Williams. After the war "Patukawa" was sold for Rehab settlement.

ยง Manako Thomas Coldham Williams bought up land at Kerikeri in the early 1890s through to 1899, and farmed sheep and cattle on 10,000 acres known as the "Manako Estate". It eventually comprised all the land south and west of the Waipapa River, apart from small areas of the Mission Station and others on the Kerikeri inlet down to the Oakura inlet. The Oakura River was its southern boundary and it extended west to approximately the present position of State Highway 1. T C Williams carried on the practice of planting gorse in rows, harvesting when young and chaffing for stock feed. He also grew turnips, swedes, oats and grasses in rotation. The property was managed by Cecil Kemp

from "The Homestead" until it was sold in 1910 to H L Bull. It was purchased by George Riddell in 1914 when it was subdivided and sold in sections.

Caroline Marsh and MORA, Georges WILLIAMS. Caroline Marsh and MORA. Georges (cont...) first individual exhibition from Melbourne University to tour Australia (1997-99). Her works are represented in public and private collections in Australasia, the United States and Europe. In 1986 she was guest curator of The Male Sensibility at the Museum of Modern Art at Heide, Melbourne. Her publications include "Saints", 1980, Bergstrom and Boyle, London, and St Martins Press, New York; "The Independence of Memory", 1996, Robert Lindsay Gallery, Melbourne; and various articles and pamphlets. There are references to her work in numerous publications concerning art and culture in Australasia and Europe, mainly during the 1980s and 1990s. Georges was educated at Leipzig and spent a year at the Berlin University, Faculty of Medicine, before leaving for Paris, France, when the Nazis came to power. As a Jewish refugee in Paris, he worked for his mentor, Monsieur Trilling, the impressario who was a publisher, concert organiser, translator, businessman, inventor and patent dealer. This training prepared him for his future career as a key

catalyst in the Australian culture of the 1950s through until his death in 1992. In 1936 Georges fought with the International Brigade in the Spanish Civil War and was imprisoned in Spain. At the outbreak of war in 1939 he was imprisoned by the French as a German alien, then released. He joined the French Foreign Legion and when the French army was disbanded he travelled from North Africa to Marseilles and there joined the Resistance. He fought in the Resistance until the fall of Paris, his main activity being the smuggling of Jewish children over the borders of Spain and Switzerland. He was wounded twice. After the war, Georges worked for OSEA, the organisation which reunited displace Jewish children with their families. When this operation was completed, he returned to patent dealing. He was made a citizen of France. In 1951 he emigrated to Australia with his first family and settled in Melbourne where he proceeded to change the face of restaurants and eating habits. He also played pivotal roles in the establishment of the Museum of Modern Art and in the Commercial Dealers Association. He started the Balzac and Tolarno Restaurants and also the Tolarno Galleries, all three becoming landmark establishments. He was also a public voice for racial equality, frequently writing and speaking on issues of racism. He became an Australian citizen. Georges changed how Melbournians, and in turn, Australians, understood and ate food. He also brought to Melbourne, key figures of the art world and international art exhibitions while at the same time influencing Australian artists and the art profession so that they started to think of themselves in terms of a world standard of practice. In doing this he created a change in the cultural climate. In 1988 he was made a Chevalier de I'Ordre des Arts et Lettres. There are references to his activities in most publications concerning life and culture in Australia, especially Melbourne, during the 1950s thru 1990s.

Nigel b, at Wellington and m. at Dorchester, Dorset, England. Elizabeth, d/o Dr Lewis Garibaldi Langstaff and Josephine Chadwick, b. atThornhill, Ontario, Canada. Address: 33 Bay View Road, Paihia, Bay of Islands. Nigel was educated at Heretaunga School, Havelock North; Wanganui Collegiate

School; Auckland University College; Victoria University College and Cambridge University. He graduated LLB (New Zealand) and LLB (Cambridge). He was President mdge University Law Society and was called to the English Bar (Lincoln's Inn) in 1939. He started work as a prosecutor for the Motor Trade Association in Birmingham. When war was declared he received an immediate commission in the Royal Army Ordnance Corps and was posted to Iraq. Promoted to lieutenant-colonel in 1944, he became assistant director of ordnance services to the 8th Indian Division as

it made its way up Italy. He was appointed MBE(Military) in 1945. He entered the Colonial Legal Service in 1946 and served in Nigeria as Magistrate (1946-51); Chief Magistrate (1951-55); Chief Registrar of the High Court of the Northern Region (1955-56); Judge of the High Court of the Northern Region (1956-63); Senior Puisne Judge of the High Court of the Northern Region (1963-68) and Chief Justice of the Northern States (1968-75). After independence in 1960, Nigel helped to train barristers at Ahmadu Bella University, and offered guidance when they went into practice. He was appointed CBE in 1967 and knighted on the recommendation of the Nigerian Government in 1970. In retirement he, along with two others, acted as Commissioner for Law Revision in the States of North Nigeria, a gargantuan task which entailed the complete revision of 50 volumes of laws of 1,000 pages each, which had not been reviewed since 1963. As a result, Northern Nigeria has some of the most up-to-date laws in Africa. Elizabeth was educated at Newnham College, Cambridge (Double First in Modern and Medieval Languages, 1937) and was a linguist with the Government Code and Cipher School at Bletchley Park (1939-45).

ยง Extracts from Obituary published by the Daily Telegraph, UK. Reed was a tail, distinguished-looking New Zealander whose fine manners, robust common sense and manifest honesty earned him the Hausa nickname, "dan Kirki" - "Excellent Upright One". Before independence in 1960, Northern Nigeria's High Court functioned in parallel with the Sharia Court -

which dealt with Muslim laws dating back to the arrival of the Emirs in the Middle Ages. Reed was in the thick of efforts to consolidate the two codes in the run-up to self-government. Mindful of the need to satisfy Northern Nigeria's tough and charismatic Muslim premier, the Sardauna of Sokoto, he was more ready to compromise than some of his colleagues. As Nigeria moved towards independence, opposition to the Sardauna was growing in the Christian and pagan south. It was a tribute to Reed's standing that the Sardauna accepted without demur Reed's acquittal of his rival, the leader of the Tiv tribe, on charges of treason. Reed stayed put after the coup of 1966, when the Sardauna and many of Northern Nigeria's senior officers and politicians were assassinated. In the resulting vacuum, he and his fellow judges were a crucial stabilising influence, especially during the Biafran Civil War, which began in 1967."

Descendants of WILLIAMS. Henry and COLDHAM. Marianne WILLIAMS. John Will 1am and BUSBY, Sarah WILLIAMS, John Wmiam (Jack) and WILLIAMSON, Jessie Mackte WILLIAMS, Nancy Mary and CACCIA-BIRCH, Anthony wmiam Fabto (Tony) WILLIAMS. Nancy Mary and CACCIA-BIRCH, Anthony William Fabio (Tony) (cont...) church work, amateur dramatics and was a keen gardener. Nancy was loved and respected for her wit, humour and her great concern for other people. Tony was educated at Huntley School, Marton and at Marlborough College in England. After training at Royal Military College, Sandhurst, he served as a Lieutenant in The Rifle Brigade regiment in WW1 and was awarded the Military Cross for gallantry in France in 1917, during the Battle of the Somme. He returned to New Zealand after the war and spent several years working in the bush, planting extensive areas of trees up and down the Gisborne East coast. He was directly involved in the formation and running ofHawkes Bay Forests, Waikoau, of which he was a director for 45 years until it was sold to Robert Holt Ltd. Tony inherited "Thoresby" farm, Marton from his great-uncle, William John Birch, and farmed there until his retirement. He specialised in the breeding ofAyreshire cattle. He was Liaison Officer with the Rangitikei Home Guard during WW2. He later served as a warden at St Stephen's Anglican Church, Marton, and was an active member of the Forest and Bird Protection Society, He loved nature and bush walking and was a keen conservationist.

In 1992 Tony retired to Gisborne with Nancy, where he was instrumental in planting and caring for hundreds of native plants in Lysner Reserve, Wainui, Gisborne.

ยง Erewhoa Tony's father was born at the Villa Caccia in Florence, Italy, and christened William Charles Birch Caccia. His grandfather was Fabio Julian Caccia, descended from the ancient noble family, del Caccia ofAsciano in Tuscany, Italy, dating from 1012AD. His grandmother was Pauline Birch, elder daughter of William John Birch of "Pudlicote" estate in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom, Pauline's two brothers, Azim and William John

Birch came to New Zealand in 1860 and leased 120,000 acres bordered by the Rangitikei River in the hill country of western Hawkes Bay, from a Maori chief. After ten years, they bought the land and called it "Erewhon" after Samuel Butler's book of the same name, meaning 'Nowhere'. Azim and William John Birch developed the land into a thriving sheep station, then divided it into two parts, "Erewhon" and "Oruamatua". Their 30-year partnership was later dissolved. Azim returned to England, but his son Reginald and grandson Jonathan Birch have farmed "Hapua" in the Wairarapa to this day. William John had no heirs, so he adopted his nephew, William Charles Birch Caccia, Pauline and Fabio Caccia's eldest son, who had come out in 1884 to learn farming. In 1891 William Charles took the name Caccia-Birch by deed poll. He took over the running of "Erewhon" in 1897, and his uncle William John Birch, retired to Marton. He bought land and built a house called "Thoresby" after a Birch ancestor who had lived in South Thoresby, Lincolnshire, UK. "Erewhon" was sold in 1919 but has since changed hands several times.

William Charles Caccia-Birch and his wife Maud retired to Palmerston North in 1921 and bought "Woodhey" which the family later presented to the Nation as a war effort after William Charles' death. Maud then moved to Marion and built "Guernsey Lodge", where she lived until her death in 1943. Tony and Nancy Caccia-Birch then lived at "Guernsey Lodge". Tony still farmed "Thoresby", although the Thoresby House was

destroyed by fire in 1957. "Woodhey" in Palmerston is now owned by the Palmerston North City Council and is maintained as a convention centre. It is known as "Caccia-Birch House".

Lillian, d/o Samuel Blomfield Ludbrook and Caroline Elizabeth Williams, was a cousin to Ken. Ken was educated at Heretaunga School and Christ's

College (1884-88). He played for three years in the 1st rugby XV and was captain in 1888, and was also in the 1st cricket XI. Ken arrived on the East Coast in 1894 and farmed sheep and cattle at "Matahiia", Ruatoria. In the early years ofWWl Ken, along

with T S, H B and A B Williams, formed and financed the Waiapu Trust with the intention of financing the settlement of returned servicemen on the land. The Trust purchased the Whakaangiangi Block not far from Ruatoria and a number of ex-servicemen, selected by ballot, settled there, with the provision that repayment of advances made to these men should be used to benefit others less fortunate. Ken also personally financially assisted a significant number of men, both Maori and Pakeha, in the years following WW1. A fluent speaker of the Maori language, Ken was keenly interested in, and highly esteemed by, the Maori ofNgatiporou. Ken was chairman of the Waiapu County Council and a member of the Tokomaru Harbour Board and the Waiapu Hospital Board. He won five elections, three of them unopposed, as Bay of Plenty Member of Parliament

(1920-35) and was Minister of Public Works (1926-28), He was awarded the King's Jubilee Medal in 1935. Ken was a Poverty Bay rugby representative in 1903. Lillian took little part in community affairs, but had a deep faith in God and was always a regular church attender. She was also a gracious hostess and welcomed a continuous stream of visitors at "Matahiia". She was a prolific letter writer and kept in regular contact with her constantly expanding extended family until she was well into her eighties,

Matahiia Station

ยง

In 1883 Archdeacon Samuel Williams through the agency of Col Porter bought extensive land interests in the Waiapu district. Included was the "Matahiia" Block. Francis James Kemp came from the Bay of Islands to manage it, and in 1885 he married Samuel's niece, Marianne Elizabeth Georgina Hutton. From 1886 to 1898, "Matahiia", along with other Williams properties, was administered by Mr A H Wallis who lived at Waipiro Bay. In 1892 Samuel Williams was in debt on the property and so he brought his two nephews, Thomas Sydney Williams and Kenneth Stuart Williams, from the Bay of Islands. He offered them the chance to start off on some land on their own account if they could clear the debt. In the 1880s Samuel built a kauri woolshed on "Matahiia". It had twenty stands and held 1300 ewes and 1500 lambs in the night pens. It had a large wool floor capable of holding enough bales for three to six horse wagons. At this time the wool was carted to "Tupuroa" where it was shipped by surfboat out to coastal steamers. Sheep from much of the surrounding country were brought to "Matahiia" to be shorn - up to 60,000 sheep in a peak year. In 1897 ten machine stands were installed. "Mokoiwi" which adjoined the back of "Matahiia" went to Gerard Temple Williams, and when he died on a hospital ship at Gallipoli, his sister, Sarah Catherine (Kitty) Taplin, sister ofKS Williams, took over "Mokoiwi". In 1917 "Matahiia" was offered to the Government for soldier settlement but the erosion problem meant that it was considered unsuitable. In 1918 Kenneth Stuart Williams gave his wagoner, Jimmy Arnold, a section of land, and he also gave his plowman, "Nob' Walter Cousins, some land comprising 250 acres of flat and 150 acres of hill. Eventually the Taplins took over Cousins' farm, which the Government bought and subsequently leased and called it "Mangarewarewa". After the Taplins died, this property was bought by John William Stuart Williams, elder son of John Dow Williams, who was Charles Kenneth Williams' younger brother. In 1924 the management of "Matahiia" was taken over by Charles Kenneth Williams, the eldest son ofKS Williams. In 1938 the old homestead was burnt down by a fencer on the property. C K Williams built a new homestead on a different site, and a smaller house was built in the old gardens for Kenneth's widow, Lillian Mary Williams. Until 1932 the only access to "Matahiia" was across the Mata River, subject to heavy flooding. In 1957 the last of the waterways were bridged giving almost all weather access after 74 years of ownership. In 1950 Kenneth Sydney Williams, eldest son ofCK Williams took over stock management on "Matahiia". In 1960 the two brothers, Charles and John, agreed to divide "Matahiia" and John called his block "Taitai" station, which was subsequently taken over by his elder son, Stuart, in 1971. Kenneth Sydney then took over full management of "Matahiia". In 1963 C K and Phyllis Williams moved to Gisborne and Ken and his wife, Jose, and their five children moved into the Matahiia homestead. "Matahiia" is now managed by Ken and Jose's two sons, Jeremy Kenneth Williams and Timothy Charles Bentham Williams. The "Matahiia" Partnership has purchased two soldier settlement farms in the valley in the last ten years and (cont...)

Jeremy returned home in 1980 and became manager in 1985. On the night of his wedding, 08 November 1986, the Matahiia Homestead was burnt down by Rastafarian arsonists. In 1984 Stuart Williams sold "Taitai" station to the Government for forestry and in 1987 he sold "Mangarewarewa" to "Matahiia", which became the new "Matahiia" homestead. This meant that this block became once again the property of "Matahiia". In March 1988, "Matahiia" station, like many other East Coast properties, was hit by Cyclone Bola causing extensive damage to the land. A month later a group ofRuatoria arsonists burnt down the old kauri woolshed and various other buildings. Jeremy and Jane Williams now live on the "Matahiia "block, and Tim and Samantha Williams live on the "Karewa" block which is run in conjunction with "Matahiia" station.

He was also a keen tennis player. He was Head Prefect in 1921. On leaving school he worked on three well-known properties on the East Coast before returning to "Matahiia" Station to help his brother Charles with the management of the property. After his marriage to Nancy, they lived at "Matahiia" until 1945, raising two sons and two daughters. John took a keen interest in district affairs and held senior office in many organisations. He and Nancy were tireless workers for the war effort, supporting many patriotic shop days. Although he moved to near Gisborne, John continued to maintain a major interest in "Matahiia" Station. After their move they developed a new home and started a citrus orchard on a section of Nancy's inheritance. John served as an Anglican Church Synodsman and was involved in the planning and building ofTe Wiremu House. He was chairman of the National Party which elected Mrs Esme Tombleson in 1960. Their new home was called "Okaihau" and was situated at Haxton near Gisborne. In 1960 Charles and John, the two major owners of "Matahiia", decided to divide the property and John called his block "Taitai" Station. He farmed it with a manager until 1971 when his son, John William Stuart, took over the property. In 1967 John and Nancy retired to town and sold the orchard to outside interests, and a portion of the bare land was left to their elder daughter, Philippa Broad.

After leaving school and completing his Compulsory Military Training, he started his farming career on an agricultural property near his parents' home. He then went on to a typical breeding property in Hawkes Bay for two years. In 1958 he took over the lease of "Mangarewarewa", a 400-acre block next to "Matahiia" Station which belonged to his great uncle and aunt, the Taplins. After his marriage to Joanna in 1964, they continued farming on the Coast until 1987 and raised their sons there. In 1971 Stuart took over his father's block, "Taitai" station and bought out all the other family members. He joined in many of the district activities and held senior positions in some organisations. Because of inherent erosion problems, Stuart sold "Taitai" to the Government for forestry in 1984, and in 1987 he sold "Mangarewarewa" to "Matahiia" and left the Coast to take up deer farming on a property known as "Sunninghill" in the Ashley Clinton district near Waipukurau. In 1996 Stuart and Joanna sold this property and they presently live at Kinloch on the shores of Lake Taupo.

After her primary schooling at Te Puke, Joanna attended Samuel Marsden Collegiate in Wellington where she was a very successful student. She went on to train as a dental nurse, a career she followed until her marriage. She has been involved in charity work.

London to study engineering and qualified as MIMechE and MIEE. He was articled to Sir Frederick Bramwell and Graham Harris, Consulting Engineers, of London in 1893, and on completion of his articles in 1897 received his practical training with Messrs Haslam and Co of Derby. In the following year he returned to Bramwell and Harris as their principal assistant, and remained with them until 1900. He then entered into partnership with Professor Henry Adams, practising as Adams and Williams until 1903 when

he joined with Walter Ridgesunder under the title, Hal Williams and Bridges. In 1910 he established the firm of Hal Williams and Co. He became a specialist in the design of cold storage and refrigeration installations. In addition he designed many large factories and, for WW1, a hospital at Hampstead. He planned the refrigeration section of the New Zealand exhibit at the Wembley Exhibition. This featured a glass fronted freezer containing frozen exhibits. At the time this was thought to be technically impossible. Later he designed the New Zealand Pavilion at the Glasgow Exhibition. During WW1 Hal was one of the prime movers in the creation of the British sugar beet industry and designed and built factories at Newark, Ely, Ipswich and Kelham in Nottinghamshire, During WW2 these factories kept Britain supplied with sugar.

In an article in the "Cold Storage and Produce Review" (April 1923) Hal laid stress on the deficiencies in methods of handling meat in the UK after it was landed from overseas liners. At a time when New Zealand farmers were involved in developing the frozen meat trade to Britain, his comments make interesting reading. He quoted (cont...)

Descendants of WILLIAMS, Henry and COLDHAM, Marianne WILLIAMS, John WHHam and BUSBY. Sarah WILLIAMS, Henry (Hal) and WILLIAMS, Cecil Margaret WILLIAMS, Henry (Hal) and WILLIAMS, Cecil Margaret (cont...) a speech by Captain Darling at the London Chamber of Commerce: "He would never forget his first visit to Smithfield Meat Market where he saw meat dropped down in sawdust, thrown into a filthy handcart, shot onto a dirty cart with a dirty boy sitting on top of the load. The meat produced under excellent conditions in Canada had suffered more within 36 hours of its arrival in Liverpool and London's Smithfield than in ten or twelve days from the time it was killed in Canada and delivered at Liverpool." He went on to suggest that, if the general public had the ghost of an idea of the conditions in British slaughterhouses, they would eat only cleanly produced and properly inspected imported meat.

In 1929 he designed and supervised the construction of the Sheffield Corporation meat abattoir and wholesale meat market. This was a milestone in meat abattoirs and public health, embodying the latest principles of modern meatworks practice. By the time of Hal's death the Government had replaced some 16,000 slaughterhouses with 800 larger killing centres. Hal was appointed Consulting Engineer to the New Zealand Government on food refrigeration and transport in London. From 1940 until his death he was in charge of the design and construction of 24 underground emergency cold stores for safeguarding Britain's perishable food supplies for the Ministry of Food. He was the author of "Mechanical Refrigeration", the standard text on the subject. It was first published in 1903 and ran to five editions before his death. He was also the author of the refrigeration section ofKempe's Engineers' Year Book. Hal was a member of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers from 1897 when he was elected a Graduate. He was transferred to Associate Membership in 1899, and to Membership in 1905. He was also a member of the Institute of Electrical Engineers. He took a lively interest in the Cold Storage and Ice Association which later became the British Association of Refrigeration. He served as its Vice President for a period and supported the International Institute of Refrigeration from its first Congress in Paris in 1908. Hal's firm was also interested in arbitration work in connection with technical disputes; Hal himself served on the panel of arbitration for the American Chamber of Commerce in London. He was also prominent in the formation of the Secret Commissions and Bribery Prevention League and was for many years a member of its Council. Cecil went to England in 1911 to marry Hal. She had become engaged to Hal in New Zealand on his only return visit here. She was given away by Sir William Russell. They lived at No 6 Holly Place, Hampstead until 1914 then moved to 28 Frognal Lane, Hampstead. Later they moved to 43 Bedford Square and lived over the offices, with the pressure of Hal's work. After the war Cecil lived at 27 Lindfield Gardens, Hampstead and latterly, at Durrants Hotel, Manchester Square. Hal and Cecil played an active part in providing a home away from home for many New Zealand servicemen and New Zealanders studying in Britain. Hal was involved with the Church of St Lawrence Jewry, the New Zealanders' church in London. Cecil presented the New Zealand flag at a commemorative service of the signing of the Treaty

ofWaitangi on 06 February 1934. He played a leading part in the New Zealand Association (Chairman in 1928). He used to organise Christ's College gatherings in London and was a founder of the New Zealand Masonic Lodge there.

Cecil played a leading role in the New Zealand Women's Association, being Vice President in 1934 and, with Hal, was prominent in the formation of the New Zealand War Services Association at the outbreak ofWW2, Cecil always entertained many visitors from New Zealand and kept in touch through a large correspondence. Hal was an active member of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel. He gave a spirited performance in a celebration pageant in the Albert Hall, according to the Times of 10.07.1930. He was awarded the King's Jubilee Medal in 1935. His obituary in "The Engineer" states that "His death robs the world of an engineer of exceptional experience and sound practical judgement." It may be added that his work in both wars, and between them, was of the utmost strategic importance to Britain's survival.

He served under Pr St John Groser in Stepney, London in early 1941 during the Blitz. The family lived first at 20 Carlton Avenue, Hayes, then Stepney, then moved to 43 Temple Sheen Road in late 1941. Derrick joined HM Forces and trained as a commando but was assigned to the Royal Army Chaplain's Department when it was discovered that he was ordained. He was attached as a Chaplain to No 45 RM Commandos for the D-Day landing. The Commandos were attacking Ouistreham on the Eastern flank on 5th June, the eve ofD-Day and Derrick was killed in the action. He is buried in the military section of the Southampton Cemetery. Anne's father was killed on 06 November 1916 in the Battle of the Somme and she was sent to a boarding school at age five.

Thomas Biddulph b 26.02.1829 d 05.04.1866 b 13.04.1824 d 16.02.1886 >arah b. at Paihia, m. at Lower Hutt (the Rev Henry Williams officiated) and d. at Paihia. 'homas, s/o John Hutton (clerk-curate ofSproxton) and Jane Burton, b. at Sproxton, sicestershire, England, d. Hoylandswaine, Yorkshire and bd. under the east window of St Fohn's Church, Hoylandswaine. He was the tenth of twelve sons (there was also a daughter, inna Maria). The Huttons came to England from Ireland where the family were well known and >rosperous. John's father, Henry (1754-1808) had been Lord Mayor of Dublin. Thomas arrived in New Zealand in 1844 and became a student at St John's College, Auckland. Later he was a master at the Upper English Collegiate School under Mr Cotton. He was artistic, hard-working, clever and rather 'moody'. In 1847 he was ordained Deacon. He illustrated Mr Cotton's diary, and hotly defended Henry Williams against a newspaper attack in 1848 concerning the Land Issue. Due to overwork he fell very ill and went to the Williams' home in Paihia to recover. In 1849 Thomas was made Inspector of Schools in the Wellington district. He went to live in Wellington to assist Mr Cole and in May he married Sarah at the Church of St James in the Hutt. A few days after the wedding he and Sarah attended a levee in Wellington to celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday. In 1853 Thomas was ordained a Priest by Bishop Hadfield in the same ceremony as Samuel Williams. On 23 Feb 1855, while he was visiting Sir David Munro in the Hutt Valley, the Great Earthquake occurred and he assisted the Munros to escape from their home as the chimney fell down. Due to continued ill health, Thomas had to leave the Hutt Valley on 20 Oct 1858 and he went to live in Paihia. A testimonial letter from his parishioners was published in the newspaper and he received a gift of 130 sovereigns. Shortly after Sarah's death in 1866, Thomas returned to England. He served as Curate in Tankersley and Chapeltown in Yorkshire (1869-79) and as Vicar at St John's, Hoylandswaine, Yorkshire (1879-85). At some time he married Sarah Marriott from the Barnsley district of Yorkshire. In 1885 Thomas retired due to ill health and died a year later. Thomas wrote two books, "Maori Legends and Records" and "Reflections of Life and Character at Home and Abroad". He was also a fine artist and his works can be seen at several locations in New Zealand, especially at the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington (E137) which has a collection of his sketches around the Purewa area in 1845. Some of his work is also in the British Museum.

Harry b. at Tottenham, England. Anna was 15 when her mother died and her father, who was in poor health, returned to

England. She lived with her uncle, Hugh Carleton and helped him in the writing of his book on the life of Henry Williams. She also lived for a time with another uncle, Christopher Davies, who was a doctor, and from him she learned much about the care of the sick. In 1879 she was at Pakaraka caring for her grandmother, Marianne, and was present at her death, which she describes in great detail in a moving letter to her Aunt Lydia, wife of Hugh Carleton (letter in the Auckland Institute and Museum Library, Ms 335 Williams from Letters '73'). In 1884 Anna went to England with a cousin to accompany a boy to an English boarding school. On the ship she met Harry who was ship's engineer and they were married shortly after their arrival in England. Her stepmother was one of the witnesses. Harry founded the firm of Henry Branch & Sons, engineers and ironfounders at Runcorn, Cheshire. Anna's granddaughter, Joan Watson remembers her as a 'perfect lady'; very like the portrait of her mother; tail, good-looking even in old age, straight-backed with beautiful hair and always well groomed. She had a great sense of fun and was a fine storyteller to her grandchildren, relating her early life in New Zealand with love and nostalgia. Her life with Harry had many ups and downs - he was a volatile and chauvinistic man - but she was calm, strong and resourceful and seemed to be able to cure all ailments, cook all foods and make anything that may be needed. Always dependable, she was a true 'survivor'. The one big disappointment of her life was that Harry never fulfilled his wedding promise to take her back to the land of her birth to see her family.
