This is Hannah (nee Longstaff) King, my GG Aunt. She came to New Zealand onboard the "Halcione" in 1875 with her parents Thomas & Betsey LONGSTAFF. Hannah married John Legg in 1875, he died in 1881 and she then married John KING. John King arrived in Taranaki onboard the "Chile" in 1875 with his first wife Elizabeth and 7 children. John died at 72 years old in 1907 and Hannah died in 1919 at the age of 68. Both are buried in Inglewood. They had 3 boys Noble, Maurice & Sydney King.
