  • Notes 


    • The Reece and the Pee Families from Shropshire (Alison Honeyfield (compiler), 1997) notes: 'Blanche died at Opotiki after the birth of her third child and is buried in the Opotiki Cemetery. In his sorrow, William placed his three small children in an orphanage and enlisted in the New Zealand Army. On his return he remarried, but the youngest of his children had been adopted. In Opotiki, Blanche's family was known to her Reece relations.'

      This child is probably Violet Alice Heald, whose birth was registered at Opotiki in 1916, as recorded on the microfiche Index of Births. There is no corresponding entry in the on-line NZ Birth Index, but there is an entry in 1917 for a Violet Alice Robertson, parents George Alfred Robertson and his wife Holly Edith, with a birth date of 20 Jun 1916 (calculated by refining the 'from' and 'to' search dates on the website). The logical conclusion is that Violet Alice was adopted by the Robertsons in 1917.
