Nation family of New Zealand

News from John and Louisa Palairet of New Zealand: “On Saturday we had a first ever Nation reunion in Auckland.the original purpose of which was to lay a plaque on the grave of my great grandfather, Henry Matthew Nation, father of Henry Innes who married Louisa Emily Green. Henry Matthew was the first mayor of Parnell [Auckland] and for some reason there was no headstone on his grave in a beautiful little old graveyard attached to St Stephens Chapel in Judge St [off end of St Stephens Ave]. Beautiful spot. Anyway the plaque was duly laid at a little ceremony with about 40+ Nation relations present, some from as far as Canada and GB. Followed by a lunch. All very nice indeed.”
