We have been looking up my husband’s family. George Ratt came to NZ in 1841 on the “Clifford” to Nelson. He died in Spring Grove on the 30th April 1873.
His son George Wratt came as well aged 20. He was given 12 acres plus five acres of Section 34 in the Spring Grove, Waimea West area.
William farmed the land as the Georges were carpenters known as Waimea West Carpenters and Undertakers. George and with Hannah moved to Canvastown, Marlborough.
Any more information about this family would be welcomed. Contact Brenda directly at the address below.
