Thomas BEVAN married Mary BEAVAN - Shropshire to Otaki

Thomas Bevan was born 1801 in Whitchurch, Shropshire, England

he married Mary BEAVEN, also born about 1801 when thy were 20

They had 8 (known) children in Whitchurch and on Saturday the 10th October 1840 they all set sail on the LADY NUGENT and emigrated to New Zealand.

After three months at sea, on the 6th January 1841, Mary gave birth to a boy whom she name Nugent. He lived for only 9 days.

Six weeks later, on the 27th February, the ship ran short of water so put into the Port at Hobart, Tasmania - it was anchored for 19 days.

During that time, on the 4th March 1841 her son Henry died, he was 12 years old - not known why he died, but there were cases of Typhus on board..??

Just 3 days before the ship again set sail on its final leg to New Zealand, Mary died.

Thomas was to live for another 40 years
As his trade was rope making, Thomas set up a rope walk at Te Aro.
In 1844 some of the immigrants took doubtful possession of land in the upper Hutt Valley.
The Maori owners resented this, so, led by Rangihaeata, resisted and the Hutt Valley War began.
This created a shortage of flax so Thomas went to Waikawa and set up his rope walk there, leaving the children in Wellington, apparently in the care of his capable daughter Margaret ... read more at his link above

Thomas Herbert DODD - Taita, New Zealand

There is a Thomas Herbert Dodd buried alone (as the only Dodd in the cemetery) in plot 74 of the Christ Church Taita Cemetery, New Zealand.

Very few Dodds in New Zealand back in the 19th century.
I would like to know if he was the son of Moses Dodd born 1780 in Berkshire, England who married Elizabeth Newton and had 10 children of which 2, or possibly 3, sons emigrated to New Zealand
(not known at this time which ship),
they were:
William Henry Dodd b.1818
Thomas Dodd b.1824
Richard Newton Dodd b.1829

OR was he the Thomas Dodd that maried Clara Helen Culleton as in allycat's journal on this site
IRELAND->ENGLAND->NEW ZEALAND CULLERTON family

If you know who he was, please leave a message
