HIKUAI

Ohinemuri Regional History Journal 8, October 1967 http://www.ohinemuri.org.nz/journal/08/hikuai.htm

By MICK LENNAN ......The kauri gum industry was at its peak while timber work and mining employed quite a lot of men in the district. The Patons were there when my people arrived and they became close friends. Fortnightly boats ran from Auckland to Tairua, whence a launch plied to Hikuai Landing. Later my mother married Ben Savage who took up 300 acres of land at the First Branch of the Tairua River. They had 11 children one of whom, my half-sister, Mary, has spent much of her life in the area. She married an Australian, - one Charlie Beach.

Mary and Charlie Beach had the Hikuai Store until the 1st World War when he enlisted and she went to his people in Australia with their son Frank, (now in Paeroa). Charlie was badly wounded and later he and his wife and two young children returned to New Zealand and once more to Hikuai. From Thames they travelled by train to Puriri crossing the hills on horseback via the bridle track through Neavesville, Golden Hills, Broken Hills, and Puketui. Later they took over the Tairua Store and have maintained it ever since though Charlie died in 1944. They had 9 children. The Beaches also acquired a farm property of seventy acres and Mrs. Beach still lives there in the house which was originally the Tairua Police Station in the milling days. The present bath-room was once the lock-up cell. ( see http://www.ohinemuri.org.nz/journal/08/hikuai.htm )
