The Malones of Makaraka

LETTER

Re: Historic Places Tairawhiti tour of Makaraka, 2017.

Could any of your readers tell me anything about the Malone family? I have an old photograph of them in my grandad’s things. On the back it says it was taken in 1902 and refers to them as grandfather and grandmother with Cissy (who I think is Mary Malone), Ted, Jim, Nellie, Sid, Albert Hardy, Essie and Steve at the Malone homestead at Makaraka, Gisborne. Thank you

Hi, if you look online "Papers Past New Zealand" and search the names - for example Mary Malone Makaraka or just Malone Makaraka - it brings up a number of articles of interest.

There was a Piggy Malone and Charley Farley on British TV some time ago . . . don't think Piggy hailed from Makaraka though.
