Caroline Garmonsway Descendants

Caroline Garmonsway born 14 Nov 1845 1 at Portsmouth, Hampshire, England;  died 23 Jan 1925 1 at Mt. Eden, Auckland, N.Z. She married  20 Sep 1861 or 20 Apr 1862 3, 4 at All Saints, Howick, Thomas Rogers, born 25 Feb 18411; died 6 Dec 1907 1.
The earliest available N.Z. electoral roll is that for 1865/66. In the electorate which also covered Howick Village Caroline's husband Thomas Rogers appeared in Otahuhu as leasing a "house" known as the Commercial Hotel. Although he had likely moved he remained listed there until after the 1875 electoral redistribution, from when he was listed as a "farmer" and the occupant of a freehold farm of 111 acres at Papatoitoi in the same electorate. Following the 1881 redistribution this electorate became Franklin North, and thereafter until the last checked electoral roll for 1890, he remained listed at Papatoitoi but as a farmer in Manurewa on lots 39 & 40 comprising 201 acres in what was then named the Manahau electorate.
