Looking for descendants in New Zealand of Thomas Eustace Green (Tame Eutahi Kirini), William King Green (Wiremu Kingi Kirini), Catherine Green (Katarina Kirini).

Query by linswad

I have recently discovered that I (in NSW Australia) am related to these three who were born in the 1840s in New Zealand. Their father Thomas was brother to my gt-gt-grandfather William Green.

Catherine *may* be the Kate Maud DAVIES who m.1887 to Henry MELLOR in Germanton, NSW.

Would love to contact NZ relatives.

Surnames: CASTLE GREEN GUNNING KIRINI McDONALD MELLOR

Well managed to post that 3 times... William Green brought the first cattle to NZ from NSW. He raised the British flag everyday when the French had ships coming to NZ. He had a hotel and children here, and was given land by the local tribe. Greens point in Akaroa is named after him.

Hello MoiraL

Sorry I haven't answered before this, I haven't got back to this site for a few weeks. Thanks for your (many) messages - when the website is slow to react, you're not sure whether it's been entered, I know.

I am really pleased to hear from you with those details about Thomas Green (not William, I hope). I've read those links you sent me which all refer to William, but Wiremu's death certificate says his father was Thomas. As well as that, I have copies of postcards and letters from NZ sent by Tame, although written by Wiremu's son as Tame's sight was poor by that time. I'm happy to send you copies if you would like to give me your email address.

I was hoping there might be a digital copy of 'To Akaroa and Back', but I'm not seeing one. I might have to come to NZ to read it, and to meet you!
