    Notes 
    • In New Zealand , according to a grandchild, they were Plymouth Brethren. Whether they followed this religion in England we do not know.

      They came from England as a married couple on the boat “Chile” and are mentioned in a passenger list. According to the book White Wings, Fifty years of sailing the most likely voyage they would have taken would have been 12 September arriving in Napier 30 December 1872.They are mentioned briefly in a book by Prof. Rollo Arnold called “The Farthest Promised Land”. Thomas came out as an agricultural labourer but by 4 April 1878 Thomas had purchased block 21 Makaretu Reserve. By 12 March 1900 he was selling 600 acres freehold land and good house, 1350 Lincoln sheep and about 29 head of cattle and horses by tender – Cash only !! Thomas only learned to read when he was 40 and was taught by his sons and thereafter only read the bible. He built a church at Makaretu.
