Early settlers in Ragland , Waikato .NZ

Journal by edmondsallan

source: -waikato early history - This Journal is a story in brief, of three brothers who came to NZ from Scotland . Some one out there in the Waikato or some where else may be a relative. The early scotch emmigrants were exceptionally hard working people and usually got moving very quickly .

They were the "Stewart " brothers . John , Robert , Thomas . They were born in Rothesay on the Isle of Butt
off Scotland's West coast during the 1820's. Their father was a sea captain of a fishing vessel and at an early age his sons were put to hard work to assist the family make a living The brothers decided to emigrate to New Zealand while still in their twenties . They arrived in Ragland on the west coast of the waikato area , which of interest was then called " Whaingaroa " where a maori settlement had been established over -800 years - before. the first white people there were Wesleyan missionaries.
The " Stewart " brothers soon started making life's for themselves and took up many new challenges.
John - started surveying land thro out NZ on behalf of the New Zealand Government. various roads , bridges , railway lines were constructed under his supervision and when he retired in 1889 , he still took up many public duties in his home town of Wanganui. NZ, Robert became a magistrate and Thomas worked as a labourer around the Waikato and Auckland . John died in 1914 , out living his other two brothers who were both buried in 1902 Thomas the youngest was the first to die and is buried in Waikumete Cemetery in the Presbyterian section . In RAGLAND - Waikato - NZ a street still remains named after them to
commemorate them being one of the early settlers in that area of NZ

Notes

"Of Plymouth Plantation" by William Bradford mentions: "Mr . Christopher Martin and his wife and two servants, Solomon Prower, and John Langmore came aboard the Mayflower." Governor Christopher was the representative of the adventurer s who provided the money for provisions and hiring of the s hip, Mayflower. THE SUTTON FAMILY; AND ALLIED LINES by Marge Waterfield Chr istopher was Governor, the representative of the Adventurer s who provided the money for provisions and hiring of the s hip. He was a large, red faced man, selfl-important, pugnac ious, fat and breathless. At the end of the journey he wa s a changed man--having lost his good red color and such a n amount of flesh his slovernly clothes hung loosely upon h im, his face a sickly yellow, patched with scurfy areas. Tr easusrer Martins accounts were not in the best condition an d he sent for John Carver concerning them the day before h e died. Gov. William Bradford in his history said, "Marti n brought with him his wife and two children, one of whom S olomon died". Title: Brøderbund WFT Vol. 4, Ed. 1, Tree #1639, Date of Im port: Feb 2, 1997 The chronicles of England, through sometimes shrouded by th e mist of time, reveals the early records of the name Marti n as a Norman surname which ranks as one of the oldest. Man y alternate spellings of the surname are found. They are ty pically linked to a common root, usually one of Norman nobl es at the Battle of Hastingts. Surname spellings include Ma rtin, Matin, Mattin, Martyn, and many more. The family nam e Martin is commonly believed to be of French origin, but w as, more accurately, of Viking orgin. The surname emerged a s a notable English family name in the County of Leiceste r where they were recorded as a family of great antiquity s eated as Lords of the mannor and estates in that shire. The y were originally from Staint Martin in Normandy and arrive d in England with the Conqueror. Baron Martin was the Scio n of the family. They became a very strong seafaring famil y represented by Admiral Sir Thomas Martin, Captain Matthe w Martin, and John Martin who sailed around the world wit h Sir Francis Drake. They moved north into Scotland and est ablished a branch at Staint Andrew in the 15th century, an d it was of this branch that Abraham Martin, the King's pil ot, guided Wolfe's forces down the Staint Lawrence. Hence t he battle of the heights was known as "The Plains of Abraha m". In North America, migrants which could be considered ki nsmen of the family name Martin, or varient spellings of th e name, included Christopher Martin and his wife who arrive d on the Mayflower in 1620; Joe Martin settled in Providenc e, Rhode Island in 1635; Elizabeth, Francis, Henry, Jacob , James, John, Joseph, Margaret, Mary, Michael, Peter, Phil lip, Richard, Samuel and Thomas Martin all arrived in Phila delphia between 1840 and 1860; but perhaps the first settle r was John Martin who settled in Virginia in 1606, 14 year s before the Mayflower. From the port of arrival many settlers joined the wagon trains westward. During the War of In dependence, some declared their loyalty to the Crown and mo ved northward into Canada and became known as the United Em pire Loyalists. The ancient family motto was "Sure and Steadfast". Christopher Martin was elected by the members of t he London contingent to be the governor of the Speedwell. However, the Speedwell had to turn back because it was leaking, and the Mayflower went to America alone. Martin transferred onto the Mayflower and he, his wife, and step-son came to America. The passengers on the Speedwell did not for m a particularly good impression of Martin, because he was generally profane and rude, as is recorded in a letter wr itten by Robert Cushman prior to the sailing of the Mayflower.
