LANGDON family:
Charles Frederick Langdon was born on 16/5/1849 Leamington, Warwickshire and Emma Sabina Dye was born on 28/7/1850 Leverington, Cambridgeshire. They married on the 25/7/1870 at St. Paul’s, Deptford, London and their first child, Elizabeth, was born in Bermondsey on the 13/7/1871. Charles was known as "Fred" and worked as a baker in England. This young family traveled to New Zealand as assisted passengers and settled in the Upper Hutt area. They had two more children, Rose-Annie was born in the Upper Hutt on 10/4/1875, followed by George on 19/12/1877 at Mangaroa. The hard pioneering life proved too much for Emma, she died aged just 35 years in Upper Hutt on 26/10/1885 and is buried at St. John’s Anglican Church, Upper Hutt. On 27/9/1886 at the Wellington Registrar’s Office "Fred" married Francis Clara Dillon. Frances was from London but knew little of her own parents, possibly she was an orphan and she seems to have left "Fred" within a couple of years. By 1888 "Fred" was living in Wellington and working as a baker. He and Sarah Newson (arrived on the "La Hague" May 1874) were witnesses at his daughter, Elizabeth Langdon’s marriage to Moses Kidd, a bricklayer, on 21/11/1888 in Wellington.   "Fred" and Sarah had six children. The eldest, Joseph, was born in Wellington on 12/5/1890. The other five children, Ellen, Charles, Alice, James and Margaret were born in Bulls where "Fred" and Sarah had settled. "Fred" ran a thriving bakery and Sarah ran a boarding house. Eventually all "Fred’s" children settled in Bulls. Rose-Annie Langdon married William Dwyer (arrived on the "Rodney" August 1875) in Bulls on 27/5/1898. George Langdon married Emily Verry (NZ born) in Waitotara on 10/9/1900. He also worked at the bakery. Elizabeth and Moses Kidd arrived in Bulls from Kilburnie, Wellington, about 1905. Elizabeth became the local midwife and nurse. "Fred" was always a bit of a character and "fond of a drink". Sometime in the latter half of 1903, aged 54 years, he vanished to parts unknown. It continues to be a mystery to both his families as to where he went and where he eventually died. There is no record of his death in NZ. In recent times the two Langdon families have made contact and are sharing family tree information. For information on this family please contact Ms. Annie Reilly (great, great grandaughter of Emma and "Fred" Langdon).

               

BUTLER Family:
Ramus BUTLER [aged 30], occupation carter, wife Martha, née BOURTON [aged 27], and their children: Mary Ann [aged 11], William Ramus [aged 9], Rosina [aged 5], Alfred [aged 4] and Elizabeth [aged 4 months]. Family originally from village of Fritwell, Oxfordshire, England. the ship was held in quarantine at Somes Island for one week after their arrival, during which time the youngest daughter, Elizabeth, died and was buried on the island. The family settled in Hawera, South Taranaki, from 1874 to 1881, when Raymus applied for a Taranaki Crown Grant of 31 acres of land in the newly opened settlement of Manaia. A further seven children were born in Hawera/Manaia: Elizabeth Ellen, born 1875; Thomas, born 1877; George, born 1880; John, born 1881; Jesse, born 1883; Lawrence, born 1885 (killed in France in 1916); and Arthur James, born 1889. Martha ran a stationery shop in Manaia and Raymus, having sold his farm to his eldest son, worked as a contractor. Raymus died in Manaia in 1924 and is buried in the Manaia Cemetery. Martha died in Kaponga in 1940 and was also buried in the Manaia Cemetery. If you have a connection tothis family or wish to know more please contact Michael Butler

               

Elizabeth Katherine VEENMAN
Born 4 Mar 1854 in London to Henry Jacob Veenman and Ann Elizabeth Webb.  Elizabeth was a servant girl and sailed to New Zealand on the ship Cartvale when she was 20 years old.  After arriving in Wellington on the 11th of October 1874, Elizabeth met Hamilton James Wiley.  After a short courtship, they married 1 May 1875 in the Saint James Church in Wellington by the minister Thomas Fancourt.  Elizabeth and Hamilton had 13 children all together.  Only one died as an infant, so twelve children lived to adult, all of which married and had children of there own.  Hamilton and Elizabeth raised their children in Lower Hutt and when the Mormon missionaries came to them, they joined the LDS church.  On the 18th of April 1907, Elizabeth and Hamilton took their youngest 5 children and a grand-daughter and sailed to America.  They arrived at Portland, Oregon and from there travelled to Utah where they joined the Later Day Saints in Logan Utah.  Elizabeth lived to the ripe old age of 81 and was buried in the Logan cemetery on the 13th of September 1935.  Elizabeth was a pioneer at heart and twice started a new life in a new country.  She was loved by everyone who met her and many lives have been enriched by her loving kindness.  Elizabeth now has descendants (including spouses) that number over 1100 in New Zealand, USA, and Canada.

IREMONGER family:
Jonathan Iremonger and his partner Sophia (nee Rendall) left England with two children, William, born March 1872, and Tom, born March 1874. The records on the Cartvale show that Jonathan came to New Zealand with his first wife Hannah nee Driscoll, but we know that in fact Hannah was left in England, and that Sophia was bought out instead. The first wife Hannah and first child, also named Jonathan were left in England, and this first child called Jonathan came out to New Zealand about 7 years later. When they left England for their new home in New Zealand, Jonathan and Sophia were not married, but had been together long enough in England to produce two sons, William and Tom. Once in Wellington Jonathan and Sophia married in the Registry Office in February 1876. The family set up home in the Ohiro Valley, where another 5 children were born to them. These children were Annie (born May 1876), Louisa (born August 1878), Major (born August 1879), Charley (born November 1880) and Ellen (born March 1883). Jonathan worked as a house painter and while he managed to buy up quite large amounts of land in the Ohiro Valley, he was not a success financially, as in February 1882 he was declared bankrupt. The family were members of the Salvation Army. In 1884 the family moved to Blenheim, were a further 5 children were born to them, they were Evalena (born September 1885), Albert (born June 1887), Alfred (born January 1890), then Joseph, my grandfather who was born December 1891. Another child George was born to them in November 1894, but he died as a babe. Again the family were involved with the Salvation Army, in the setting up of a Corp for the church in the Blenheim area. While the family spent some time in the Blenheim area, with the children now marrying and moving throughout New Zealand, Jonathan and his wife Sophia moved to the Hamilton area where a number of the now extended family had moved and settled. Both Jonathan and Sophia died in Hamilton. I have a FULL family tree on all of the above family; if anyone is interested, do please make contact at Laurie Rands
