New Zealand Completed Requests / Re: George MOOD, born 1831, Wiltshire, England

Hi BAC3

Was the George MOOD (born 1831) you seek, the same person as Goorge MOOD, (b 1831) - occupation : Baker - convicted 6 March 1844 -- who appears on the Pankhurst* Prison registers ???
[Note:  * Appears on index as Pankhurst ... but should probably read as Parkhurst ?
Some of these juvenile prisoners arrived in New Zealand. ]

The following database has records (not much detail though) showing a George MOOD was a miner in the Thames district (Waikato,. NZ) in 1868 and 1869.

http://www.kaelewis.com/index.htm

An 1880-81 electoral roll listing for Waikato-Waipa, has a George MOOD - contractor resident at Raglan.

In 1896 however, there are a number of "curious" listings showing --

->   a George MOOD, labourer, and a Jane MOOD, storekeeper residing at Eden - Auckland.

->   a George MOOD, miner --  Jane MOOD, Domestic duties -- George Harold MOOD - mine manager.  All are residing at Karaka Road, Thames (residential qualifcation).

[My Note:  My guess ... is that George MOOD and George Harold MOOD are "one and the same".  And although the naturalisation of George Harold MOOD didn't come about until the year 1900, it's probable the man was earlier using, the name he would later be known by.   
It does also look as if the couple, George and Jane MOOD, moved between living in Auckland and Waikato (Thames) over the years.    e.g. in 1905-06 they're at Takapuna, Auckland -- 1919 George Harold MOOD, bush contractor, residing at Huntly (Waikato).   Noting too that the George MOOD (1880-81) had the occupation of contractor ; and in 1896 was a miner :  George Harold MOOD had similar occupations. ]

Hi BAC3

From what I can see, the George MOOD who appears in New Zealand records, possibly goes on to become "George Harold MOOD" by way of naturalisation which occurred in May 1900 ???

There was a block of Maori land called Wakoukou, near modern day Riverhead.

Mmm .. shouldn't that read as "Waikoukou"  ???   :)
