TUKU 24 - Early Settlers Revisited

Monday 8th April 2024

Speaker: Peter Millward.

Nelson’s early settlers who arrived between 1841 and 1850 came mostly from the UK as part of the New Zealand Company scheme, but some came via Australia with some leaving New Zealand for Australia within a few years of arrival.

Peter’s project brings together the range of different lists that exist, including databases at Ancestors Attic, Papers Past, Shipping Manifests and the 150 Anniversary Wakefield Quay list. These
lists provide a fascinating insight into the sociology of the times, such as the tragedy of the ill-fated Lloyds, which carried the families of the men who came earlier on Whitby and Will Watch.
