Edward John Edwards
Date Posted
My Grandfather ( Edward John Edwards } died in 1952 when I was about 4/5, so my memories are quite vague. I do remember specific incidences of my time with him, but it does not include a whakapapa of any kind. My maternal grandmother was divorced from him long before I was born, and my mother never filled any gaps, so his memory was not kept alive and any knowledge of him withered, apart from what I can remember as a 4 y.o. As there are no other Edward John Edwards recorded in returned services records, so I have to assume that this man is the Grandfather I never got to know anything about. I do believe he left land to my mother somewhere between Whangarei and Dargaville, which would make him linked to Ngati Hine. I also believe he had links to Ngati Whatua, but this is unconfirmed. I do have in my possession a photograph taken of him, my Grandmother, and my mothers sister as a baby,
