Beyond Kaimata, Junction road continues for about five miles, and passes over a most picturesque zigzag to the settlement of Tarata, between which and Inglewood there is daily communication by coach. Originally, the site of the village of Kaimata and of the surrounding settlement was covered by dense bush, most of which had been cleared away by the year 1893. It is undulating well watered country, and is in the hands of industrious and prosperous settlers. The Manganui river flows through the settlement, which is in the Huiroa survey district of the Taranaki land district, and is a part of the Moa riding of the county of Taranaki.

The Bint siblings assembled in older age - I  have yet to identify them all - Catherine is in the centre and Will is the one with the bushy moustache I believe - haven't yet tried matching the other faces but no doubt Lester and or Walter is probably there.       Stephanie



A message from Melanie Rose Bint from Waitara, Taranaki in New Zealand. 
It seems to be that I am a descendant of the late Philip and Charlotte Bint who traveled to New Zealand on the "Cardigan Castle" which left on September 9th 1876. Philip is my Great Great Grandfather. His son William is my Great Grandfather. My Grandad who is Reginald Bint, Williams youngest child of 8, married Gwendoline 'Betty' Bint, who had three boys, James Rodney Bint (1951), Barry Martin Bint (1953), and Neville John Bint (1957).

Barry is my father. He married my mother Fay Joyce Bint  in 1966 my Grandparents adopted a girl Julie Linda Bint. I am the eldest of Barry's 3 children, Melanie Rose Bint (02/02/1983), Phillippa Jane Bint (24/06/1985), and Amanda Fay Bint (04/11/1987).
