Notes for Walter Norgrove
He appears in the Wainuiomata Settlers’ Roll, and Kate has some recollections of him, but I don’t know too much.

W. BURTON vs J. DEMPSEY

At the civil sittings of the Resident Magistrate's Court this
morning, evidence was taken on both sides in an action brought
by W. BURTON against J. DEMPSEY to recover the sum of 100
pounds as damages for the refusal of the latter to endorse a
promissary note of W. NORGROVE, his brother-in-law, in respect
to the purchase of the plaintiff's farm at Wainuiomata. His
Worship gave judgment for the plaintiff for the amount claimed,
to be reduced to one shilling if defendant endorses the note
within seven days. Mr OLLIVIER was for the plaintiff, and Mr
BRANDON for the defendant. The following cases were adjourned:-
W. C. FITZGERALD v A. D. BENNETT, 14s: and W. C. FITZGERALD v
Wm. CORBETT, 2 pounds 15s 6d.

(Note that his sister Gertrude married Joe Dempsey, hence the relationship.)

In 1889, according to the Marlborough Express, Walter applied for a patent for scutching and cleaning flax, entitled “The Anti-friction Scutcher and Cleaner”.
Notes for Hester (Spouse 1)
Lived in Wellington. Kate called her Esther Gain, although I think this is just a transcription from what Kate said, and thus easily misspelled.

According to the Marlborough Express, 30 September, 1882, they had a daughter on that day. No name is given, nor any other details.
