Warwick Hale: Sir William Hale
On a recent visit to the UK and in conversation with two nieces of Sir William (ages 96 and 80+) I undertook to try to find names and address' of any descendant of Sir William who they may contact. I visited Sir William when working in NZ in 1959 and would dearly love to be able to help these ladies in their mission. There is talk of the younger of the two actually visiting Thames if some dialogue is established. Thank you for your time in reading this note. It would be great if something came of it.

Hayley Teesdale: Did the house have a name
As a child in the early 1980s I lived in an lovely old home in Tirohia on the Noble farm opposite side from the school.
My parent shared Milked for the owners.
I would like to know some history of the home as I remember the house and garden to be very special.
It has been replaced with another home on the same position.
Please contact me with any information.

Shane Taylor: Match Boxes
I really enjoyed reading John Tasker's article on the history of matchboxes in New Zealand. I found an actual example of one of the old tin matchboxes in John's article. Is john still with you? The matchbox came from under a basement of a house in central Auckland. It's still in quite good condition with some of the original contents. I will take photos for you and John and post them on a Facebook page called "Old Tin Matchboxes". I will do this within the next few days.
