I have been researching my family tree for over a year now & have a lot of information regarding the Climo's. So I am hoping to connect with any descendants of James and Jane as well as descendants of my 3rd-great-grandfather's family, the Popes. His name was George Whiting Pope. And lastly, I am trying to find information on my 2nd-great-grandmother's family, the Cotton's, who lived in Nelson. I have found some information which I am happy to share here and am ever hopeful that I may connect with descendants of this family also.

Do you know someone who can help? Share this:

I was most interested on the research you have done especially re Twidles Island. Our grandparents were neighbors on this island after WW1 and my mother was born there along with her 8 siblings. They were the Jones family - Elliott Henry Jones and Madge (Margaret). I have quite a bit of information on them. Elliotts father was Richard Jones who was a builder and built the Havelock PostOffice and the school - both buildings still surviving. My parents were married in the Havelock Anglican church. My grandmother, Madge, was descended from the Muller family who came to the Nelson/Marlborough area in the 1848 (I think).
I would love to hear more about Twidles Island and your family and I think I may have a photo of a Mrs Pope that my grandmother referred to often.
Would love to hear from you.
