Hi Sandy, Thomas and Henrietta are my great x3 grandparents. One of their sons moved to Samoa and we are from that line. I was born on NZ and currently reside in Australia. At the moment I am working on our Penn family tree starting from Thomas and Henrietta's son John Herbert Penn. There are still Penn's in Taranaki NZ. We are a large family from Samoa. John Herbert had six children, unfortunately I don't have any other information on his siblings or parents.

Hi Sandy and fredapenn,

Elinor Lucy Penn, a daughter of Henrietta and Thomas was the wife of my gt gt Uncle William George Malone. So that makes us all related somewhere down the track doesnt it. I have nothing so far in my tree regarding Henrietta's background but
I have come across this reference to some Hope's in South Africa, but dont know if they are "ours" so might or might not be a lead.

I am looking for more information on the following Hope ancestor: George Robert Hope (1800s) - (I assume that his father's name was Joseph Arthur Hope)
I have the following information: He came to South Africa somewhere in the second half of the 1800s. His son Joseph Arthur Hope (my grandfather) was born in South Africa in 1883. I was told that he (George Robert Hope) came from Scotland to South Africa with port of entry either Port Elisabeth, East London or Durban.
This is unfortunately all I have to go on for now.

PS I can help with the siblings of John Herbert Penn, if you want any info let me know
