From newspaper articles:

July 1883 Jens Christensen Skjoth of Norsewood received a letter of naturalisation

DEATH - At his residence, Rawhiti St on June 9th 1907 at 6.15pm, Peter Hansen Skjoth, aged 62. The deceased was an old settler

OUTRAGE in WELLINGTON - 14th April 1920 (longer story, cropped here) Mrs Caroline Cooper, a widow, who resides with her mother, Mrs L Skjoth and her sister Miss Annie Christina Skjoth (in Aro St) was awakened by the sound of someone forcing an entrance into the scullery.... James Newbury has been apprehended on a charge of attempted murder. It is said he had been on rather friendly terms with Mrs Cooper for some time past but recently she resented his attentions.

DANNEVIRKE SUNDAY SCHOOL 14th April 1891 - Miss Amunda Skjoth from the Second Class won a prize. She also got 50 (points?) for sewing in Standard IV at Dannevirke School in January 1893.
Miss Annie Skjoth of Standard III got 85.
Amunda did well at school - has many mentions in the local paper

In February 1892 Mr Jens Skjoth complained about the conduct of some children rolling stones down the hillside into his property and otherwise annoying his family.

In March 1893 a Miss Skjoth and Mrs Skjoth took first and second prize for fancy needlework at the Norsewood show.

In November 1902 J. Skjoth was granted a hawker's license in Dannevirke.
