About Henry Mankelow

Harry Mankelow History - Submitted by May Hall 16 April 1995

Grandfather Harry was born on August 10 1853 at Mayfield, Sussex, England. His parents were Thomas Mankelow and Sarah Page. (second husband Brown) Harry arrived at Wellington, New Zealand aboard the ship Waikato on July 11 1874. He left Wellington aboard the Government boat vessel Luna and arrived at New Plymouth N.Z. on July 15, 1874 and gave his age as twenty-two. From New Plymouth he went to Inglewood near Mount Egmont and worked with survey parties building bridges.

Grandfather only had a fortnight of schooling but was able to sign his name and do some sums.

On May 20 1880 he married Mary Elizabeth King. After marriage they took up a fifty acre farm. Grandfather still did day work for extra money. In 1903 they took a trip to England to see King Edward VII crowned, they returned before the event took place. While over there they visited with their many relations. Our grandparents had six children.

Grandmother Mary's parents were John King and Elizabeth Kitchen. She was born at Great Grimsby. Lincolnshire, England on May 4 1863*. Her and her parents arrived at New Plymouth N.Z. aboard the ship Chile on September 26 1875 after an one hundred and six day crossing. Their family and others from the ship walked and took bullock cart to Inglewood which was carved out of thick bush.
