while looking for Emma STENT I came across this . . .

Journal by ngairedith

Emma Stent married my great grandmother's brother and I have just been doing a research on all the women of that family.

I came across this very interesting write up about her father CAPTAIN JAMES HAYTER JACKSON who was one of the first 50 people to emigrate to New Zealand and he set up a whaling station in Marlborough. When he first arrived he spent the early years living with the famous maori chief Te Rauparaha.

BUT, for me, even more interesting is that Emma, his daughter, the woman I was researching, married twice - first marriage (to John Lynds who died in Australia somewhere) she had 4 children to.

The second marriage to Charles Stent she had another 16 CHILDREN TO !!! - (actually 10, see link below)

3 years on and the above info has now been amended after much research and HEAPS of help from Malcolm - read here: Emma JACKSON-LYNDS

Surnames: JACKSON LYNDS STENT

Search the Ryerson Index in Australia for Death Notices from 133 different Australian newspapers.

There are currently at the time of writing 36 notices for STENT.

And goodness - 20 children - I do sincerely hope that there were a couple of sets of twins.

For the record - Emma had 4 children to John LYNDS (first were twins) and 10 to the second marriage Charles STENT. All children born in NZ.
