The Climo's of New Zealand: JAMES CLIMO - OBITUARY

Journal by amber27

"The death of Mr James CLIMO, at the age of ninety-one years, is recorded by the Pelorus Guardian. Deceased, who was a native of Cornwall, arrived with his wife in New Plymouth on 01 April 1841 and their first child - which was also the first white child born in that town - was born on 05 November 1841. Next year he left New Plymouth and went to Kawhia. On returning to Taranaki Mr CLIMO was shipwrecked at the Heads and lost everything. He and his wife had to carry their two children on their backs for ten days, living on native food and fording the rivers. They settled in Taranaki until the war broke out and Mr CLIMO was called out with the militia for defence purposes. In an engagement with the natives on 28 March 1860 he was wounded and suffered more or less ever since from the effects of it. As soon as he was able to leave the hospital, he was invalided to Nelson. After short sojourns in various parts of New Zealand, Mr CLIMO went to the Havelock district and had resided there ever since."

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:

Hi Dianne,

I have had computer problems myself over the last few months and due to these issues I can no longer access my old address, which was amber27@vodafone.co.nz

You can now reach me at amberclarke27@gmail.com

I have been going through the old family photos again and came across a couple that Aunty Maude sent Poppa after her 90th birthday. Did she have a collection of dolls?
I think she hoped that he would be able to visit her but due to his & Nana's ill health they couldn't travel. Poppa died in 1997 - so Aunty Maude survived him by a couple of years. His name was Sylvester John Henry (Jack as he was known to everyone) & his mother was Sylverta Nance Pope.

Look forward to hearing from you. Hope this finds you in good health. All the best for 2013!

Kind regards,

Amber Clarke (O'Donnell)
