OLD HUTT FAMILIES
The following list of names includes those of many families who arrived in Wellington before the end of 1842 and settled in the Valley.
As the roads were opened to Taita in 1843, Upper Hutt in 1844, Wairarapa in 1847 and Wainui, several of these went further afield.
Again in 1872 others migrated to the Rangitikei District where they founded Sanson.
Most of the names, however, will be familiar to the older residents of the Valley and adjoining districts, whilst a large number of the descendants of these pioneers still reside in the Valley.
