A Good Deed.

Caption

My great grandfather and his wife arrived in New Zealand November 1859 on the Zealandia. Parents told me John Hepworth did a good deed for a Maori chief and was presented with a Huia feather.  The feather was in the possession of my father's older brother .. in about 1940 ... [but]  the  ... family can no longer find the feather.     I believe but am unable to confirm that the European man with the hat on in the photo is my  G[reat] Grandfather.– John Hepworth, Christchurch, 2010.

Date: 1800s.

File reference: HW10-UR-155.

Entry in the Christchurch City Libraries 2010 Photo Hunt.
