The Pope Family of Marlborough, NZ - RICHARD WHITING POPE - OBITUARY
The Pelorus Guardian 08/12/1891
HAVELOCK NEWS: Our Havelock correspondent writes: - "I have to record the death of another old settler, viz Mr Richard Whiting POPE at the advanced age of 85, he died on Sunday the 6th instance. Deceased arrived at Taranaki in 1841 but in April 1860 he migrated to Nelson, consequent of the breaking out of the Taranaki War in the month of March in that year. Deceased had served in Her Majesty's Amy in Portugal and at Gibraltar. He has left a number of sons and daughters and grandchildren."

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.
