Perhaps also related.

Golden Wedding Anniversary in 1908 of Franz Kroning and Henrietta Henke, married at Colburg, Germany in 1858.  Present address Waihola.

They also arrived on the Sussex that Lucy gave the link for. 
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-DBY8-25?i=16&cc=1609792

Henrietta's death in November 1918.  It's a very long list of death notices, but influenza was rampant in the district.

Carl Henke's death in 1918.

One of the daughters is a Mrs Voight.  Perhaps her husband is related to Louisa?
One of the daughters is a Mrs Lischner, and there were also Lischners on the Sussex.

 Thanks Beg,Crisane, Spades, Lucy2, Hurwoth and Minniehaha for the valuable information you have provided and the links  to your sources. I really appreciate  that you all take the time to give such detailed helpful replies.   

It now looks like the story of the Shetland Isles forebears might be on the other side of the family----the  George Gair Hunter  who is buried at East Tairi cemetery.

 Is there a special website I can make  contact with regarding Shetland Island settlers in New Zealand ? Regards Orkrad.
