    • The Reece and the Pee Families from Shropshire (Alison Honeyfield (compiler), 1997) has a note from Stephanie Cullen:
      'I met Thelma Haddock in 1990. She told me a most interesting story of her early life. She was the daughter of Blanche Pee and William Heald. I do not known where Thelma was born but, in 1916, the family was living in Opotiki. A second daughter (third child) was born there. Unfortunately, Blanche died in childbirth. Thelma had some faint memories of that time - she would have been three years old at the time. She recalled sitting with an old lady, on the steps leading up to the front door. Although she had no further contact with Opotiki, Thelma was always aware that 'Granny Reece' who lived there was part of the family and she believed that 'Granny' was the old lady she remembered. Shortly after his wife's death, William Heald joined the NZ forces and went overseas. He put his children in an orphanage, although the baby may have been in the care of a family member. She played happily with a little girl who lived nearby. They had a special friendship and it was not until many years later that Thelma learned that this 'friend' was actually her younger sister, born in Opotiki in 1916.'
