T surnames on PECK of Taita

The tree, PECK of Taita, contains many early settler families of New Zealand. Started in 2008 as a Family Tree of Samuel PECK, it now contains thousands of people who are not at all related to him, but are still connected (in varying degrees) through generations of marriages. The site has therefore been changed to a 'Genealogy Help Site' for those researching 'Kiwis' in all NZ districts

TAITA school opened 1st March 1859 in Lower Hutt New Zealand

Taita is one of the easternmost suburbs of Lower Hutt City in New Zealand, situated toward the northern end of the city. It is south of the Taita Gorge which separates Lower Hutt City from Upper Hutt City

An Education Act of the Provincial Council passed in 1855 became operative only in such districts as the Superintendent might proclaim. The "rate-payers" therin were organised by means of an initial general meeting, the election of a Committee and subsequent annual general meetings.
The District Committee were entrusted with full responsibility for the management of the school, including the appointment of tears.
It appears that these provisions did not become fully operative until 1866 whn the Superintendant gazetted a notice defining the Taita or Middle Hutt School District. In 1859 however, a committee under the chairmanship of WIlliam Philpot applied to the Provincial Council for a subsidy. The applications, dated 24th June 1859 and 1st August 1859 are held by the National Archives in Wellington. Copies show that the school opened on 1st March 1859, the site of the school being somewhere between Mabey Road and Avalon Park

The building was 12 x 20 feet (which is about 3.66 x 6.1 meters) with a playground and had an attendance of up to 33 children

Taita, June 24, 1859

To His Honor,
J. E. Featherston, Esqr.,
Superintendent,
Province of Wellington

May it please your honour,
We the undersigned inhabitants of this part of the district of the Hutt, having long felt the want of the regular means of School instruction for our children, have recently formed ourselves into a committee for the establishment of a ay School in our neighbourhood.
Our School has already been established upwards of three months (viz) from the first of March of the present year the number of children and youth in the school are 28 - the income of the school during the past three months has been a little upwards of $11 or about 17/- per week, which we consider insufficient to remunerate an efficient schoolmaster and knowing the interest that your Honour has taken in the establishment of schools we beg leave humbly to solicit through you that precuniary assistance from the Government which may be at your disposa that will enable us to carry on and consolidate the school which we trust will be of great benefit to the children of this locality
- We are, Sir,
- Signed Your Humble and Obt. Servants,
William Philpot, Chairman
William Hughey (1802-1878)
David Hughey (1829-1919)

This old Taita school no longer exists but on the site stands the Taita Intermediate School

On the 8th February 1861
TAITA SCHOOL GATHERING - The annual Tea Meeting in connection with the Taita day school, was held in the school room on Thurdsay, January 17th, when there was a full attendance of scholars and their friends. After an abundant tea, cricket and other rustic games engaged the attention of the youngsters until dusk, - and the proceeings of a happy holday, were terminated by a lecture on "The Life and Times of John Bunyan," delivered by the Rev. H. W. Scott. Votes of thanks to the lecturer, and to the choir of the Wesleyan Church, for their efficient vocal and instrumental service were passed, and all separated, gratified, and we hope benefitted, by the enjoyments of the day.

On the 16th August 1864
NOTICE - The Subscribers to the Taita School Building Fund are respectfully requested to pay the amount of the donations to any of the indermentioned members of the School Committee, with as little delay as possible

Winifred Morgan Buck (nee James 1883-1976) wrote in about 1960 when she was then living in Te Kuiti .. "My husband's grandfather, George Green Buck gave the land for the Taita School. Previously he had owned land and a house which became known as Clifton (Clevedon) House School and that, I believe, was the first school at Taita. The large schoolroom was built on the side of the house. This was built on the corner of the Main road and James Lane. I have just discovered the account book of Taita A.D. School instituted 1850. The names on the front page are: David Lyons, William Welch, John Bryce, Alex McLeod, George Buck, Henry Buck, Edward Hart and Job Mabey. The next pages are torn out"

TAOTAOROA, Waikato - school pupils to 1908

Taken from the site: Taotaoroa Schools Cambridge

In September 1885, two 'half time' schools sharing one teacher between them were opened in the district. Taotaoroa No 1 was near Buckland Road and Taotaoroa No 2 at Whitehall. At the end of 1892 No 2 School was closed. Then at the end of 1896 No 1 School also closed but, then moved closer to Cambridge and reopened in 1899. No 2 School was opened again in 1902, and they continued as 'half time' schools until 1907 when they both became full time schools with their own teachers

the Centenary 100 Years of Education in the Taotaoroa Whitehall Karapiro Districts. 1885 1985
... Two of the three districts concerned in our centenary Taotaoroa and Karapiro still retain original Maori Names. Whitehall, an out-station on the Fencourt Estate became the name for the third district. However when the first European settlers came, practically the whole area was known as Taotaoroa. Early settlers whose descendants have had a continuing association with the area were the Bruce family who arrived in 1871 and the Brunskill family who came in 1875. The 1884 Electoral Roll contained 21 names of men who either lived in or had property interests in the Taotaoroa area
