About Emily Rhoda Hawke

Emily was the first born child of James Belcher and Mary Heaven. In 1874 when Emily was only 6 years old she immigrated to New Zealand with her parents and four younger siblings aboard the Merope.

It was there that Emily met Charles Hawke. Charles and Emily were married at the Belcher home in Cardiff.

    Emily must have had a hard working busy life as apart from her 13 younger sibling she and Charles went on to have 12 children of their own and 46 grandchildren.
