Topic: Early Families of Waipawa

Topic type:

Research by Carol Lambert into the early families of Waipawa and surrounding district. Her Grandparents Ancestors were First Pioneer Settlers in Central Hawke's Bay. Makaretu and Porangahau. Beside the Mountains and beside the Sea.

In 1874 the Jensen families emigrated to New Zealand from Denmark. It was probably two brothers aged 45 and 41, their wives and children.

They landed in Napier and proceeded to Makaretu - west of Waipawa.

The daughter Anna Sophia married Adolf Arpard Breuer in Waipukurau, Hawke's Bay on 30th. January 1875.  This couple and their children moved to Waipawa in July 1887 as found in the Makaretu School records.

They attended the Waipawa Primary School and eventually married in and around the district as stated below - Annand, Lambert, Gray that I know for certain - all recognized local names.
