looking for info on Karn marie Jensen or family,families Born Denmark 1859 died Waipawa New Zealand1902

Query by 60chris

HI, I started doing my family tree about 3 years ago
MY GGGRANDMOTHER came to New Zealand from Denmark in 1874 on the Ship Winchester She was born in1859 and died in 1902
I think she came with her Family Her Father was Peder and her Mother was Kristine or Christine Jensen from Vordingborg, Praesto

.On their Wedding Certificate It mentions Bakkenebolle, I think her mother was a Jensen before she married a Jensen ,
She Married my GGGrandfather a Mr George Leonard Loinel Abrahams They lived in Waipawa and run a Hardware store. George was from London from a Jewish family His Father was a Henry Abrahams and his mother Milborough Lewis .
If anyone is looking for the same Families i,d love to hear from you

HI Chris I have the census records from Denmark with them on and I was doing quite a bit of research on them. I believe she was actually born Karen Marie, the daughter of Peder and Kirsten Jensen who emigrated from Denmark on the Winchester. In the ships passenger manifest it shows that they traveled with their two sons - Hans Peter and Carl Julius, the girls traveled on the same ship but as single girls. Her other sisters name was Ane Kirstine Jensen. I have the will of Kirstine Jensen and in it she she leaves her estate to be divided between her 9 grandchildren - one of whom was Walter Abrahams of Waipawa. One of the other grandchildren was my grandmother. I hope I am right or else I am really confused. If you want any of this you can contact me and I will email or post it all to you and then you can decide :-). Sharon
