  • Notes 


    • Richard (known as Rex) took over the Waiwera farm after his parents moved to Panmure. The Waiwera farmhouse is on the Upper Waiwera road, on the right past the memorial (on the left going from Waiwera) which is below the old school site. The farmhouse is below road level, was moved there from a riverside site due to a flooding problem. According to Dale Wallace in 1997, who as a child stayed there for holidays with her grandparents, the house was well kept but had no furniture at all (though there was always a good car).
      Rex is on Marsden electoral rolls as a farmer at Upper Waiwera from 1922 to 1935.
      Rex and Gladys retired to Napier Avenue, Takapuna.
