Re: looking for info on CUPPLES in New Zealand

Hi Linda and other "Cupples" re searchers.
My Paternal Grandmother was a June (Najuna) Cupples. Born June 08 1885 in Otautau, New Zealand. As near as I can find out her parents names were Robert Cupples and Annie Matilda Sherwood. I know her parents were Irish and that her father was a very big man.

I am researching from Canada and get very excited when I find anyone else researching Cupples in New Zealand. There does not seem to be too many CUPPLES in N.Z. and I feel that we are probably all related somewhere. I believe that Leslie Frank Cupples, the ALL BLACK must have been a cousin or a nephew of my Nana. He was also born in Otautau 10 years after my Nana. I have been able to find no other information on my Nana. I don't know when her parents died, though I believe it must have been before WW1. I received some information from Coral Cupples Woon that showed my Nana as next of kin for two brothers.

If anyone is also researching CUPPLES and would like to contact me, please do so. My email address is

I look forward to hearing from some researchers.
