Looking for the children of AMIND MALDERSEN and ELISE (nee LARSDATTER, Waalberget) Amundsen from Norway to New Zealand 1874

Amind Amindsen MALDERSEN Amundsen was born in Grue, Hedmark, Norway in 1841 which would make him aged 34 when he emigrated to New Zealand in December 1874 on the Fritz Reuter - the ships passenger list has him as 41, can you help with this date?

He married Elise LARSDATTER Waalberget who was born about 1846 also in Norway.

They had Carl born 1866
Lars born 1869
Anne born 1871
Albert born 1874
Then in December of 1874 they emigrated to New Zealand

The next child I have for them was Adolph who was born in Ormondville in the Manawatu in 1888

I believe there would have been many other children born in this gap between 1874 and 1888
Can you help please?

Carl MALDERSEN Amundsen born Grue 1866 - married twice in New Zealand

Carl MALDERSEN Amundsen emigrated to New Zealand with his parents and siblings on the Frtiz Reuter which left Germany in 1874, arriving in Napier in 1875

He married Margaret Theresa Lorigan in 1893 - she was born in Napier in 1877 and died in 1921.
They were divorced some years later
Carl's second wife was Sarah Dalzell who married him in 1907 in Taihape, New Zealand

I know nothing of Sarah and I have no children for Carl from either marriage

Would appreciate your help

Maisy Edna Minnie KEMPTON of Carterton, Wairarapa

Maisy Edna Minnie KEMPTON
was born 1907 to Frank Valentine KEMPTON & Minnie SULLIVAN
her father was 1 of 16 children of Thomas KEMPTON & Elizabeth Mary HODDER

DEATH of her grandfather Thomas KEMPTON
Dominion, 2 May 1910 A PIONEER SETTLER

Another pioneer settler has passed away in the person of Mr Thomas Kempton, of Elm Grove, Greytown, who died on Friday night. The deceased came to this Dominion in the ship Adelaide, with his parents, in 1840. This is the same boat as Mr T. W. McKenzie, of Wellington, came out in. Mr Kempton lived in Wellington from that date till 1854, when he travelled to the Wairarapa district, which was but little known in those days. He arrived there on march 23, 1854, and one of his first actions was to get a spade and turn what he claims to be the first sod in the Wairarapa. Recently, in going over his experiences, he said the road at that time was formed to the summit of the old Rimutaka Road, and from thence it was only a bridle track to Featherston, from whence it was a poor track to Greytown.
The communication between the Wairarapa and Wellington was abruptly ended for some time by the heavy earthquakes of 1855, which brought down the hillsides and blocked the road. He drove the first four-bullock dray over the road on July 7, 1856, with one tom of merchandise on board and three weeks later the second load was driven over. Regarding the old Queen's Wharf, he claimed cutting the first pule for that contract in 1862, but owing to the difficulty of haulage the piles had to be obtained nearer to Wellington. Among his other experiences he owned for a time the old "Rising Sun" at the south end of Greytown, but in 1860 he left that and took up the homestead bow owned by him, the "Elm Grove," and practically lived there ever since.
As a horticulturalist he was for many years a leading light in the Wairarapa, and kept the association going by his large number of exhibits. He was the first to traverse the Tararuas, and the Natives said he would never come back again. He used to tell of his experience with the Maori, and how he gained their confidence, and could go out and work where no other pakeha dared go. When Dr Featherston came up to the Wairarapa to form a defence corps, he first consulted the deceased, and there was great excitement when the first lot of rifles and ammunition reached Greytown. Mr Kempton was called on to store and protect them till proper arrangements were made.
He married the eldest daughter of Mr W. Hodder, who had the Golden Fleece Hotel at the Pakaratahi (sic, Pakuratahi) in the early days. He was married in June 1859, and the issue of the marriage was eight boys and eight girls, twelve of whom are still living. There are fifty-six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. At the time of his death he was 74 years of age, and his wife had predeceased him some three years.
The deceased had been in bad health for some time. and passed away as stated at a nursing home at Carterton, but will be buried from "Elm Grove," Greytown, in the local cemetery

MAISIE EDNA MINNINE Kempton married Ralph Oswald RAYNER (probably in Carterton) in 1926

His parents were:
* 1865 - 1943 Richard Benjamin RAYNER, born in Carterton

- they are Archer Street Cemetery, Masterton
