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

Who were the children of Adolph Adwin Amundsen & Anna Mara Southee in New Zealand

Adolph Adwin Amindsen was born in Ormondville, in the Manawatu, New Zealand
His father was Amind Amindsen MALDERSEN Amundsen from Grue, in Norway
His mother was Elise LARSDATTER Waalberget also from Norway

Adolph married Anna Maria Southee in Taihape, New Zealand in 1919

Anna Southee's parents were George Southee b.1864 in Lowry Bay, Wellington and her mother was Emma Hedges from Chakrata, India

I believe that Adolph and Anna had at least 10 children
I would like to know who they were

Can you help please

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
I would like to know if she had any siblings and names of any of her children

Ralph Oswald Rayner (1906-1962 )was born & died in Carterton
His parents were:
* 1865 - 1943 Richard Benjamin RAYNER, born in Carterton
* 1871 - 1921 Maria Elizabeth COMPTON, also born in Carterton
- they are Archer Street Cemetery, Masterton

His is the second death in the family of nine sons and six daughters, his brother Frederick having predeceased him a few years ago. Deceased married Elizabeth, (daughter of Mr. Charles McIntyre, a Wellington veteran), who bore him two sons and two daughters, the elder boy having recently left school.
Mr Cottle has been in failing health for some two years, lung trouble having followed upon a severe attack of influenza. He was sitting outside in the sun on Monday afternoon, and at 11.20 the same night was no more. The immediate cause of death was haemorrhage of the lungs.
The funeral took place on Thursday, at the Taita cemetery, the service being performed by the Rev. J. H. Sykes.

Evening Post 16 June 1919 - OBITUARY of George Petoni Carter
Mr George Petone Carter, who it is claimed was the first European child born in the Wellington district, died at his residence in Russell terrace, Newtown, yesterday, aged 79. His parents were among the first lot of immigrants to land at Petone. For many years his father was in the Customs in Wellington. The late Mr George Carter was at one period of his life a builder, and afterwards engaged in farming at Reikiorangi, but for some years before his death he had lived in Wellington. He has left a widow (a daughter of the late Mr George) and eleven children

Evening Post 15 Dec 1931 A FINE COLONIST
Mrs George P. Carter, who celebrated her 84th birthday on Saturday at the residence of her eldest daughter, Mrs Jeffs, Palm Grove, holds a unique family record (says a correspondent). She herself bore a family of ten girls and four boys, two of whom died in infancy. She is now the grandmother of sixty, the greatgrandmother of forty, and the mother of twelve, while sixteen grand children are deceased. Mrs Carter was formerly Miss George, of Tinakori road. She was born on 31st December 1847, but, for the purposes of convenience, celebrated the event on Saturday last, the 12th, in the presence of over 100 of her descendants. It has been the old pioneer's custom for years to give each of her descendants a Christmas present, and Saturday's birthday function was thus a happy opportunity for the custom to be carried out, as well as an opportunity for the large family of descendants to pay their birthday respects to a revered old lady. Mrs Carter was married in 1865 to Mr George Petone Carter, son of the late Mr Joseph Carter, who landed in New Zealand in 1840, and worked in the Customs office, his demise occurring in 1873. His son was born in Petone in November 1840, the first white child to be born there. He went gold digging in 1859, and in 1861 started the pit sawmills at Karori cemetery. At the celebrations on Saturday Mrs Carter was surrounded by her descendants, young and old, and from a Christmas tree came the first present, a gift from her family. A birthday cake was a feature, and the honoured guest also received a handsome bouquet from the hands of a greatgrandchild. Mrs Carter confesses to having been a constant reader of the "Post" ever since its inception.

Evening Post, 25 August 1934 PETONE LANDMARK
OLD CENTRAL HOTEL SOON TO DISAPPEAR
An old Petone landmark, the building at the corner of Jackson and Fitzherbert Street, which used to be the Central Hotel and is now the headquarters of the Petone Relief Committee, will shortly disappear. The Petone Borough Council has been granted permission by J. Staples and Co., the owners of the building, to have it pulled down in connection with the Jackson Street widening scheme ...
... The building is about forty-seven years old. An old resident who came to Petone fifty years ago said that it was built a few years after his arrival. It was first used as a boarding-house, but was afterwards vacant for a considerable time. The builder was Mr George Carter, who also built several shops between the hotel and the present site of the Self-Help grocery shop. Messrs Ward and Williams used to own the building. While it was still vacant a barber named William Scoones had a shop in a corer of it. The first licensee was Mr Thomas Wrigley, who came to Petone from Masterton ... (more at link)

Evening Post 19 Aug 1939 - DEATH OF EMMA
The death occurred recently of one of Wellington's very old residents, Mrs Emma Carter. In the past eight years Mrs Carter had lived with one of her daughters, Mrs Jeffs, 12 Palm Grove, Berhampore. Mrs Carter was born at Willis Street in 1847. Her parents, Mr and Mrs Thomas George arrived at Nelson by the Martha Ridgway in the early forties, later crossing to Wellington, and eventually settling in Tinakori Road, where they lived for many years. Mrs Carter's late husband, Mr George Petone Carter, was born at Petone in 1840, his parents, Mr and Mrs Joseph Carter, having arrived there in September of the same year by the sailing ship ?Aurora?. In spite of her great age Mrs Carter had a wonderful memory and interested many of the younger generation with her tales of old Wellington. Of the 153 descendants of Mrs Carter 140 are still living.
