  1. I have previously given you the names of some of the Norman family who arrived in Morrinsville prior to the war.

    My aunt,Muriel Norman,still alive in Marton at 96(married name McKinstry) was born in the Morrinsville District around 1913/1914.

    She just misses out by a year or two.

    Roland Norman

  2. Hi Roland,

    I meet with the Manager of the museum and a couple of our volunteers tomorrow (Saturday) and I will pass these details on to them. They will also help you with your enquiry about your grandfather James Francis Norman.

    Many thanks for using our new website, we are all very excited to be able to help with enquires such as yours through the internet.

  5. My grandfather was John Crickett, of Lincoln Street, Morrinsville. He had two sons who went to fight in the 1914-18 war, so they all would have been living in Morrinsville at the time. They are Guy Crickett, Ivan Crickett, and Harold Crickett. My father, Jack Crickett wasn’t born until 1918. John Crickett’s father or grandfather laid out the plumbing for Auckland, having arrived on the second boat to NZ in the 1800’s, so they may have been in Auckland prior to moving to Morrinsville. But Jack was born in Morrinsville.

  6. Hello,

    George William & Annie Rogers are my GG Grandparents, I’d be interested to see any further information you have on them. Do you have any photographs of the Rogers family?

  11. Hi Chris, I have photos of Samuel and Julia if you still need them.

  12. I am trying to find out more about my paternal grandmother, whom I believe lived in Morrinsville as my father was born in Morrinsville. My father was called Allan Edward Barnett.
    My paternal grandmother was Mabel Clarice Barnett (nee Whineray). Sadly she passed away in 1917 when she was just 32 years old. My father was 3 years old. I know little of this grandmother and would love to find out more.

  13. I am looking for any information about Nicol A and Margaret Larney who owned the Lauriston farm. He is my GG grandfather. Can any one please help me with this. I know he died on the 11/06/1915 and his head stone is in the Te Aorha cemetary with his wife

  14. Hakon Bonnevie is listed in ‘Early settlers’ with an asterisk beside his name, indicating you have further information or photos. Hakon is my great grandmother Lena Petersen’s second husband. She lived in Morrinsville with him along with children from her first marriage. Am very interested to know what further information you have?

  15. Hi Sharyn
    We have a newspaper article from the local Morrinsville Star about Hakon reaching his 100 birthday.

  16. Barbara Dobson

    Can you tell me what the reference “ER 13 Oct 1908″means?
    I am trying to trace the places my grandfather Frederick Irwin Hunt lived, and what he did before farming at Te Kawana Rd, Te Aroha.


  17. Hi
    I am researching 10 men who went to WW1 after all working on the same farm in the South Island.

    I note one (or at least his namesake) was resident in your area before the Great War :

    Alexander Beith GEORGE

    Have you any other information on him please which you can share? I would much appreciate this.

    Sarah Flint

  18. Hello
    I am researching Alexander Beith GEORGE, who is on your listing as being a Cook at Annandale Piako.

    Have you anything else on this person please?
    What was ‘Annandale Piako’ – a farm?

  19. Hi Sarah,
    Unfortunately we have no further information on Alexander GEORGE. The information we have listed is taken from the Electrol rolls

  20. Hi Sarah,
    Annandale was and still a farm (Estate) to the east of Morrinsville It is still owned by the descendants of the Allen family who purchased
    it in the mid 1890’s from W.A. Murray who named it Annandale
