Posted by: Barbara Tonks Date: December 17, 1999 at 03:32:06
  of 327

William & Jane (nee Ingram) Tonks left Gravesend London in Oct. 1841 for Wellington NZ arriving Feb 1842. William Tonks was born in Shropshire England in 1806 parents were Jonathon & Hannah Tonks.

William & Jane were early settlers in Wellington and there is a lot of family history available about this branch of the family.

Tonks Ave, Arthur Street and Frederick Streets in downtown Wellington are named after the Tonks family who at one time owned much land in this part of Wellington.
