Not sure if I can help. My mother was a Peck from Dannevirke. We had a Peck family reunion at the racetrack at the Hutt valley Wellington approx 37 years ago. A Peck organized the reunion lived in upper hutt. I think they had a furniture factory. It was a huge turnout of relatives. We had a servic in an old very small wooden church in the hutt, on a road that wound around the base of the hills, on the right side of the hutt going north. I believe the church has since been burnt down. I think there was a maori chief buried there at the back of the church with a large monument to him.
the church was internally damaged by fire in 1989 and subsequently restored to its original specifications
you can see the church here after it was lovingly restored and read the history
