  • Notes 


    • There was an impression that Bert and his father did not get on. He told a family member that his father was a very hard man and the family had to work on the farm at Waiwera like slaves and he (Bert) ran away at about fifteen. He went up north and had taken a horse saddle and bridle. His father sent the police after him to retrieve the horse and saddle etc. and sent word that he needn't bother to come back. It was some years before he returned, to see his mother, he said.
      The name "Allison" was probably from the Allison family who were involved in shipping - the Devonport Ferries - at the time Bert was born.
