News and updates, October 2018

Updates are made to this site as new information comes to hand. Several changes have recently been made, particularly to the posting on the Honeyfield migration to New Zealand. Additional material was sourced from a substantive research paper on the North Dorset Honeyfields authored by Ann Pearce and Frances Toogood that Anne Hodgson kindly sent me.

I would welcome any new material or feedback on this site so please do feel free to contact me.

Anne Hodgson has also set up a Barrett Honeyfield NZ Facebook group. The group has been set up for descendants of Richard (Dicky) and Wakaiwa Rawinia Barrett through their daughters – Caroline (Kararaina) and her husband James Charles Honeyfield, and Sarah (Hera) and her husband William Henry Honeyfield. If you would like to be added to the group please let me know.

Kevin and Jackie Honeyfield are hosting a celebration in January 2019 to mark 150 years of the Honeyfield family farm down Timaru Road, Tataraimaka. Part of the preparations is the collaborative development of  the ‘If Walls Could Talk’ document setting our accounts of the life and times of the extended Honeyfield family centered on the old Homestead and its antecedent Maori history.  Please let me know if you would like more information about these developments.
