Some Notes for the Reader

These short forms are used for easy reference to two major sources:
Star Hawera Star
‘Our Own’ A local resident recruited to provide a regular letter of local news. Standing alone, ‘Our Own’ refers to the Star's Kaponga ‘Our Own Correspondent’.
Eltham [Manaia, &c] ‘Our Own’ The Star's ‘Our Own Correspondent’ of the place named.
Star (12/7/96)
‘Our Own’ (1/3/06)
Dates thus bracketed refer to publication date. For any event &c dated in the text even these short forms of reference will be omitted—the source will be contemporary Star files, where it can easily be located.
Farmer New Zealand Farmer (Auckland, 1882-)
Other abbreviations:
DP Deferred payment (on land sold by the Crown).
‘Kaupokonui’ The bush settlements of the Kaupokonui Survey District Blocks in the 1880s (see p. 20 below). (Not today's locality of this name, east of Manaia.)

Biographical material

For settlers prominent in our story, brief biographical summaries are provided in Appendix 1, pp. 34752. They mainly cover significant aspects that do not relate to Kaponga and other important details that will not appear in the main text. An asterisk following a name in the text informs the reader of these notes.

Referencing. Biographical material has been collected by the usual methods of genealogical research, but is not referenced. The references may be found in:

Elizabeth (‘Betty’) Arnold, Kaponga People 1881-c.1920, which is lodged in appropriate libraries.
