The Charles Edwin SHEPHERD obit rests well with his Motherís account, but is his age a little out for a Middlesex birth in late 1852? Perhaps I should also return to MOTAT who hold the best NEW ZEALAND FARMER archive, to see what he published.

Thanks Lu & Minniehaha.

Must up the farm.

Annie SHEPHERD, was still at WAIUKU in January 1863.

https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/DSC18630103.2.19.2   [6th paragraph]

Just love these accounts. Europeans did not have a Manoply on pioneering.

By July 1864 she had shifted her business to Onehunga.  DSC 13-7-1864 page 1 [classified advert] and DSC 4-5-1865, page 1.  So in keeping with her family tale.

PS -  You never know what you are going to find late at night. Was searching Onehunga & Shepherd when I came upon a Railways compensation report. Acquiring land for the Main Trunk Railway, which went through the middle of my Gt Grand Father's farming operations of that time. His name was in clear print, so unsure why my previous hunts had not found it. Recently spent hours searching deeds & title indexes, looking for references to the acquisition, and or land offered in compensation. At that time he was a lease holder of Crown owned land, and no two documents used the same description for the identity which was the trustee for the land. Was unsure if any documentation would have been in the name of the Crown Identity or that of the Lease holder.  But I digress.

Have a great weekend.

Adding to Luís #8 posting.

Marriage registration date for Annie Curme SHEPPERD and Captain Peter IWERSON was 5/12/1865.

1860ís Shipping Intelligence reports see him first entering the Manukau Harbour on the 32 Ton ss Darling 29/8/1864, and then from several other voyages. Then from 19/11/1964 on the 52 ton Schooner Excelsior, for quite a number of calls, mainly from West Coast shipping ports, until 15/8/1866. There was one report of a Captain IWERSON, Mastering the Mary Ann Christina, from Lyttleton to Auckland 7/4/1865.

In the Greymouth River Argus on the 20/9/1866 is reported the enquiry into the loss of the Excelsior, on the river bar. It was claimed that under the prevailing conditions, the tug boat engaged, had insufficient power for the task at hand.

In September 1867 Mrs IWERSON gave notice that she was retiring from her Onehunga business.

By the 1880ís she and Peter were establishing themselves at Whatawhata. Annie started operating a store and agency. In March 1894 they are credited with building a Hall for the Whatawhata community.

After the death of Peter, she sold her Whatawhata business to Mr SIMCOCK in October 1907.

Alan

Have to inform you that a good number of people have already documented the lives of Annie C. SHEPHERD and her sisters Edna BATKIN and Teresa (COAD later MacDOUGALL).   ;)

Also much of the information gathered, has been published.

The "Auckland Waikato Historical Journal - of September 1988 - No. 72" makes mention of the series of articles written for the "Waikato Times".   [These will of course be the 1890 ones you've added here.]
It is said that the articles were re-discovered circa 1970 by one E.S. BEER, who published an abridged version in the "Journal of The New Zealand Federation of Historical Societies" in 1972 and included it in the book "Plough of the Pakeha".
[Note:  This info sourced from "Three Pioneer Sisters" by Margaret SHEPHERD and Rowland GREEN.]

I should maybe have asked earlier ... are you related to this KEET family ??
Just curious.   :)
