the Manukau Harbour. A reunion to celebrate 150 years of the Garland family
in New Zealand will be held on the Awhitu Peninsula January 24 - 26
(Auckland Anniversary Weekend) 2010. Family movements have led to loss of
contact within some branches. For this reason we are trying particularly to
make contact with the descendants of: Elizabeth (Bessie) Frances Garland
Paxton (née Giffney), Josephine Desprez Souter (née Giffney), Emma (Nemmie)
Garland Bach (née Giffney, Dora (Dolly) Erin Sumner (née Giffney), Winifred

May Holden (née Garland) and Henry William and Eliza Garland (née Cook).
After Henry William Garland's death Eliza married a Mr Reed, who adopted
Louis/Lewis and Henry jnr and moved to Australia.
