PECK of TAITA
I don't know if there is a connection I have a William Robinson Hastwell in my family who was born in Kirkby Stepehn Westmorland and moved to New Zealand he had a coaching stables in Wairarpa excuse spelling. I was sure I had something that mentioned Cobb but cant find it at the moment. I don't know what your connection is with the Hastwell family.
You will see from the Hastwell Web page, that I am a Hastwell. It may be of interest to you, that my cousin Alec Hastwell emigrated to NZ. circa 1949 at the age of 18. He died about four years ago in the hospital at Nelson.
The family were domiciled in the Kirby Stephen area until late 19th. century. The closure of the lead mines made subsistance very dificult. There was a period of emigration to Lancashire; Blackpool and Burnley. I would be willing to discuss further. Please contact me at:[email protected]
Job Vile was a coach and livery stable proprietor. He and his wife Helen Vile are buried at Mangatainoka, Pahiatua.
Job Vile was the first Mayor of Pahiatua and was very influential in getting the Pahiatua bushland opened up for settlement.
Herbert Vile ( Job's son) and his wife Winifred are also buried at Mangatainoka.
Several generations of the Vile family lived in the original Vile homestead in Sedcole Street, Pahiatua over the years. I can provide a contact, he is 'Kitty' Vial's son.
