WWI ANZACs of MARTINBOROUGH Wairarapa

Journal by ngairedith

MARTINBOROUGH is a town in South Wairarapa, a district in the Wellington region on the North Island of New Zealand
John Martin is regarded as the towns founder and set out the first streets in the pattern of the Union Flag in the 19th century. Many of the town's streets are named after foreign cities visited by Martin. Before Martinborough was established the southern part of the region was known as Waihenga, a point that seems to be lost at times in the history of the district. A feature is the colonial architecture, one example of which is the historic Peppers Martinborough Hotel, built in 1882.

The 1880s depression meant Martinborough grew slowly. The town provided a stopover for workers heading to the coast, so transport and accommodation became key industries.

Unlike in other towns, Maori retained a significant presence. Residents included Niniwa Heremaia, the eldest daughter of Ngati Kahungunu tribal leader Heremaia Tamaihotua (also known as Ngapuruki, the leading chief of Ngati Hikawera of Ngati Kahungunu and Ani Kanaara, one of his 3 wives); and Maata Mahupuku, great-niece of Papawai marae leader Hamuera Tamahau Mahupuku and a childhood friend of Katherine Mansfield

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them
