There were no Nettles born or died in New Zealand but there were a number of Nettle and Nuttal. Can you please verofy that name

There were a lot of Wade (many I have known personally) from the Waikato and Wairarapa areas
A name similar to what you are looking for was:
John Charles Waterford WADE - he was born ABOUT 1829 and died in 1871 aged about 42. He was born in Rangiriri which is just north of Huntly, Waikato. He married Harata Kaipono who I think may also have been from that area. They had a son William 'Willie' Wade born in 1855 in Rangiriri. Willie married Ellen Kaiwharu of the King Country and they had 9 children in the King Country.

There was a Thomas Waterford Wade born in 1886 in the Waikato. He married Lucy Gibb. They named a son, born in 1908, Thomas Waterford Wade.

John WADE married Jane HARVEY in 1873 and they had:
1875 - Alfred John Rochford Wade
1876 - Waterford Charles Rochford Wade
1878 - George Henry Rochford Wade
1881 - Ethel Waterford Wade
1883 - Mildred Waterford Wade
... apart from the Waterford named running through the generations there is also that of Rochford. More research would reveal where that came from

A Charles Wade was born in 1870 in Yorkshire, England. He emigrated to New Zealnd and is buried at the Makaurau Marae in Ihumatao, Mangere, Auckland. It is a mana whenua marae of Tamaki Makaurau - Charles married Mihi Ngawari Whinui who I believe was born in Mourea, a lovely little settlement on the east side of Lake Rotorua (where I lived for a time)

There were Wades in Woodville and Thames and as distant as Invercarill to Dargaville

If you could perhaps supply a name for Mr Nettles and perhaps a town in New Zealand we may find more info.
Do you have more info on your George Waterford Wade Nettles ?

Hi folks, I have photos of what remains of the headstone for Clara Matilda & Earland Edward WADE, children of Thomas Henry WADE & Harriet Polly MacKAY. It's on private property down the end of Hampton Downs Rd, Te Kauwhata. I'm related by marriage through another daughter, Amy Charlotte.
