Hello Ngaire
My gt grandfather, John Newton was a soap manufacturer in Kaiwarra Wellington from 1886-1965- Caledonian Soap Works owned by John Newton & Son - and the Lynnebergs both Birger and Einer, worked for him and then his son, Alex Newton for many years.
They were highly regarded by the Newtons. In his will he left a bequest to both Lorenz & Mrs Lynneberg. Berger (sic) was an executor of his will along with others.
In my gt grandfathers will it was obvious that he had a high regard for Lorenz, whom I realise lately was an older brother to Birger and not his father.In John Newton's Will it is written:

I DIRECT my trustees if there should be a public crematorium at the time of my death to have my body cremated AND if there shall be no public crematorium at the time of my death I direct that my Trustees shall provide for a simple white pine box or coffin at a cost of no more than ten shillings (10/-) such box to be made by my old and faithful friend Lorenz Lynneberg of Kaiwarra and that a sufficient number of common bricks be placed beside my body in such box or coffin so as to sink it at sea and that a steam launch be hired to convey my body to Cooks Straits to a point ten (10) miles south of Pencarrow Heads and that my body be there committed to the sea

AS it happened there was a crematorium built by the time he died but whether Lorenz ever built the plain simple low cost coffin or not I dont know. I liked the old and faithful friend bit.

Alex Newton also remembered the Lynnebergs in his will. Helga and Ross were left shares in John Newton & Son Ltd. He also left Einar 131 shares in the company. Which number was just below those of Alexs surviving children. I have a photograph which may contain the Lynneberg family so may I send it to you to see if you recognise any of them?
I don't want to put it up here.

thank you for all that info Katherine,
why do you not want to add the photo here? Perhaps you could write your own journal on the family and add the photo then. We would like to read the story :)
