FAMILY HISTORY

          William Cornford (1828-    )  was said to be a Hedge Carpenter and a Gardner. There is mention of him in the book 'Homewood and It's Families'. The family immigrated to NZ on the 'Lord William Bentinck' on 8th Jan 1841 arriving in Wellington on 19th May 1841. His sister Elizabeth (a seamstress) was listed but then marked as 'not going'.

          Caroline Cornford (1821-1896) was a nineteen year old passenger on the 'Lord William Bentinck'. Henry Bentley (1819-1902) trained as a seaman and became a crew member on the same ship bringing settlers, including Caroline, to Port Nicholson. Henry jumped ship in New Zealand along with five of his ship mates. Henry and Caroline married in 1841 shortly after arriving in New Zealand and it is presumed they meet and struck up a lasting friendship on the voyage.
