PECK of TAITA
Many thanks ,Ngairedith for the info....There is a lot of information you have provided to add to my already lengthy list of facts.There is a summary of the Hurndell family History from 1825-1973 written by E.C.Mitchell,I have never been able to find a contact or connection with this person. Would really like to find the location of the Hurndell Brick and Pipe Works in Palmerston South,which Cornelius started;and with his eldest son John Henry Hurndell. Again,many thanks for all the extra details you have helped me with....Kind Regards, Chris Howes.
Cornelius Hunrdell was declared Bankrupt in August 1882. He was listed as a 'Labourer' of Palmerston, Otago
His debts were $80 (about $13,000 in 2011) and his assets were $6 (about $950 in 2011) - did he start the Brick Works AFTER this or prior ??
Yes,you always get in the newspapers if you 'mess up in life ..' nothing has changed.From my info. The Brick works was up and going from 1867..I have an early photograph I discovered at the Palmerston Waihemo Museum ...I located his 'unmarked grave' at the Palmerston Cemetery after lots of work...just next to the great Sir John Mckenzie's massive gravesite. I am planning to set up a HeadStone for him....Hope you can help with more info. Be great to have a photo of the family. Kind Regards, Chris Howes.
..I may have a photo of Cornelius Hurndell and Mary Jane, which I located at the Waikouaiti Museum..could that be ID'd by anyone??..The EC Mitchell refered to is Ellen Campbell Hurndell .daughter of Albert Joseph Lee Hurndell and Nellie Groves. Ellen married Norman Stewart Mitchell...Ellen was I think refered to as 'Nellie' also.She had a daughter...Collen Fay, who married Herbert William Fred Fox and a son Leslie Stewart.anyone know of location of info of Collen or Leslie...?...Thanks..From Chris Howes.
Wow this was so good to find...I am the great grand daughter of Selina hurndell and Charles Paterson Cunningham. Thanks for the info
....Hi Nicolag, have a well sorted Hurndell Family Tree up and going at Ancestry.com check it out if you have not already.....any old Hurndell Photos would be great....From Chris Howes..
