A name of interest for me, was that of my Great-Grandmother, Honor PASCOE.
Honor WILLIAMS was born 31/5/1862 at St Just in Penwith, Cornwall in England. The daughter of John and Elizabeth WILLIAMS. After her father died, Elizabeth and her three daughters emigrated to NZ, leaving Plymouth 5 June 1879 and arriving on the "Glenlora" into Lyttelton 30 August 1879. On 15/2/1871 at Timaru, Honor married another lad from St Penwith, Benjamon Eddy PASCOE. They moved to Napier around 1893, then onto Waihi, where Honor died 11/10/1939. Her husband Ben, then moved to Thames where he lived until his death on 23/6/1945.
