New Zealand - 1
I live in Upper Hutt, a city 35k north of Wellington, the capital of New Zealand.
My Father was Cyril Heenan, born circa 1920 in Blaketown, Greymouth, New Zealand.
Grandfather was Vincent (Snow) Heenan, born Hokitika, New Zealand.
Grandfather was Thomas James Heenan, born Australia, died Hokitika. Married Mary
Kearns of Hokitika. Their eldest son, Thomas, was killed at Chunuk Bhar, Gallipoli,
August 1915. Their second son Vincent (Snow) was twice wounded at Gallipoli and
went on to serve in France. He married Theresa Stevens in Hokitika, then moved
to Wanganui where he was a builder for many years.
It is believed that Thomas
James left Australia hurriedly, and we don't know exactly where he was born. We
are not sure if he came here on his own, or with his parents.
