Hi Alan

When time permits, I'll read "Annie's story".   ;)

Just digressing for a moment from Annie ...  had been interested to read her comment about the "Maoris" ...  but it appears her brother-in-law Mr COAD (husband of Teresa), fell victim to "the natives" in 1860.  :'(

New Plymouth - St Mary's Anglican Cemetery :

Block 2 - Side of Church

"Sacred to the memory of Ephraim COAD who was killed by rebel natives, 17 August 1860, aged 43 years :    ALSO  Priscilla, his daughter, died at Auckland 18 May 1865, aged 10 years : "

   ------------

The Native War -  (end of column tells of Mr COAD's demise)

https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/OW18600922.2.16

  ...   similar account - this one, more easily read ...
https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/NENZC18600905.2.12

Of course the newspapers of the day, yield other accounts too.

Morning all.

From a weary eyed researcher. Was well after 1am before I got to bed and what should be a busy day ahead again today, so research time limited.

Lu I have supplied my work in progress WORD file to Minniehaha, as we have exchanged research in the past re an unclaimed body. But only too happy to forward same to any NZ board members who PM me an email address. I've got too many open projects on the go, but this one covers the same teritory as the MYERS research, so I have run with it as well.

No time now, but will read with interest your research into the Taranaki branch and their experience during the Taranaki conflict.

Hopefully there is famly out there that will appreciate our colating some of their heritage and giving it new life.

Thanks.

Alan.

Attached another edited quote with reference to the married sister at new Plymouth that they set out to link up with.

My sister (the unmarried one) was waiting for me on the beach, and my brother-in-law (Mr B.) just arrived as we landed.

… When we arrived at the farm where they lived, my brother-in-law cooed, and my sister and her little boy came out to meet us. How she surprised me, when she left England she was a slight graceful woman, she was now fat and ruddy……………. My brother-in-law was in partnership with Mr 0. B. They have both attained high positions in New Zealand, so I do not mention their names.


Hi again Alan

Not sure if you've been able yet to find details of Annie's "mysterious" brother-in-law ^ "(Mr B)"   ???    So will add further info in case it is of interest.

I believe "Mr B"  was  Charles Thomas BATKIN* who married in 1849 to Annie's sister, Edna KEET*.
  [*  Various spellings to be aware of   ;D   B A L K I N  ...  K E S T  and  K E D, Edna Pmalla  (in place of KEET).   @ancestry - correction since made to index listing ]

Marriage at Christ Church , City of London -- 6 January 1849

Edna Pricilla KEET 
 - fulll age - daughter of Edwin KEET - gentleman


Charles Thomas  BATKIN - of full age - farmer
 - son of Charles BATKIN - vestry clerk of St Leonards :
-------
Interesting to note that Charles T. BATKIN is listed as a "farmer" on marriage cert ?   Once in New Zealand, he goes on to have a career with the government (attained high position in New Zealand - to quote Annie).

On the Juror's List 1858-59 published for the Province of New Plymouth shows Charles as >

BATKIN - Charles Thomas - Carrington Road, Clerk.

Have some More to follow > next post.
