In Reply to: Re: NATTRASS LUKE (ENGLAND TO NZ C1839) by peter john nattrass of 345

Do you know Doug Nattrass now in Whangarei NZ whom is married to De. They had 4 sons, Chris, Martin, Tim, John and one daughter, Grace. ....?
I was married to John Nattrass and have three of his children!

Doug Nattrass told me that Luke Nattrass was his great grandfather, brother of mathew mark luke and john,
and his son was Nelson Luke, first whiteman born in Nelson NZ...
so i thought he was pulling my leg as he also said that Nelson Luke from England who married to a french refugee called Marie Antionette in 1840 and immigrated to Nelson NZ...

I thought, "hang on, Marie Antionette, the one who told masses the joys of eating cake, 1840-around the time of the French revolution, and this wife of his was a French refugee... ???? and then this mathew mark luke and john...hang on...Is Doug trying to tell me something else here??? like bugger off! I never wrote to him again"

So if Luke Nattrass was your grandfather...
is this the Luke Nattrass who had a son in Nelson, called Nelson Luke Nattrass, the first born white man in Nelson, so your father one of the other siblings...? so...
you're related to Doug..somehow...???
So Howard was one of the very youngest of Lukes children then and that must make you doing very well in your years so to say, as Doug is doing pretty well himself...
otherwize my leg is about to come out of it's socket!
