HART'S of Manawatu, New Zealand.
The HART family (Richard b 22/7/1837 and Susan nee Luckham b 22/7/1838) emigrated to New Zealand originally from Devon departing Plymouth in 1879 on "Rakaia" arriving in Wellington on the 9/9/1879 and then travelled north to Foxton.
They sailed on a full-rigger, setting out into the Atlantic and the long journey to the South Pacific. A newspaper account recalls the vovage - "the equator was crossed on the 2nd July and Cape Farewell (New Zealand) on 7th September. The weather throughout was very fine and the winds only moderate. The passengers seemed to have enjoyed themselves very much on the vovage." There were 296 government immigrants on board, 75 for Hawke's Bay and the remainder for Wellington. On 11th September the Evening Post reported "the steamer Stormbird which left for Foxton this morning, took 26 immigrants, ex the "Ruakaia" and the "Tui" left for Wanganui at noon with 14. Tomorrow, 67 others will leave by the "Rotorua" for Napier.
Believe there is some excellent photographs out there of their wedding in Hampshire England on the 24/12/1864 along with some of the early family prints.
