Looking For Martinus "Martin" Jensen who was born January 18 February 1879 in Brønderslev, Nordjylland, Denmark

Father: Willum Marthinus Jensen, (son of Jens Sørensen & Anne Simonsdatter)
Mother: Ane Jensdatter

Children of Willum and Ane Jensen:
Jens Andreas Jensen, b. 06 Jan 1876,
Martinus Jensen b. 18 Feb 1879, (my great grandfather)
Ane Cathrine Jensen
Ansine Othea Jensen, b. abt 1884,
Johanne Jensen, b. 07 April 1886,
Per Gronborg Jensen, b. 20 Jul 1890,
Else Jensen, b. abt 1901
Karen Marie Jensen (no d.o.b)
Carl (Karl) Jensen (no d.o.b)

Martin Jensen immigrated to New Zealand abt 1910 where he met Te Tai Ngunguru Tipene. They were married 24 April 1911 at the Registry Office, Auckland, New Zealand.

Their 3rd daughter is Moana Mary Jensen. Moana is my grandmother.

Moana's eldest child is Harata Matekitawhiti Te Moana. Harata is my mother.

My mother adored grandfather Martinus and she spoke fondly of him, of the holidays she spent with Koro Martin and Nanny Nguru as a child. She remembers him for his kind and gentle manner. The area where they settled in Aotearoa (New Zealand) was Wharekahika (Hicks Bay), in the East Coast of New Zealand where Martinus became a farmer. Martinus Jensen was highly respected in his community.

My mother said he often spoke of his siblings with much affection. She recalls he said his family were farmers and resided around the Manna Tise Furreby area in Hjørring, Danmark. We believe he kept in contact with Jens Andreas, Ansine, Johanne and Per Gronborg and remembers when her grandfather was in very high spirits and very happy after speaking with his sisters Johanne and Ansine by telephone.

We know he took passage by ship from Copenhagen to New York and may have spent 1 year in America along with his brother (not confirmed), from there he jumped ship onto a whaling vessel and travelled to Australia and from there to Auckland New Zealand.

Martin Jensen died at the family homestead in Wharekahika on 11 Oct 1948. He was was deeply mourned.

I would like to find any information on Martin Jensen's siblings. All information would be appreciated.

Kia ora RKH - thank you for your email - it's always a pleasure meeting more whanau and especially so close. My mother is Harata Te Moana daughter of Moana Mary Te Moana and she remembers her Aunty Punky (your nanny) fondly and with much aroha.... I have a research site on MyHeritage.com which I'm using to gather more information on our Danish rellies.... If you would like access to it just send me an email address and I'll send you a link. I'm just heading out now and will chat more later.

Take care
Max Simpson
