Her great-grandmother Elizabeth is second from left at rear. Descendants of Captain James Ninnis celebrate 165 years since his arrival at Kawau Island. On January 9, a picnic is planned on the lawn and memorabilia displayed at Mansion House, built for Mr Ninnis, wife Priscilla, and their six children after their arrival on January 14, 1846. The two-storey, 10-room house was occupied in 1862 by later island owner Sir George Grey. Born in 1809 at St Agnes in Cornwall, Mr Ninnis became a mine captain -- hence his title. He was brought to Kawau Island to run its copper mine by the North British Aust- ralian Loan and Investment Company of Aberdeen, which bought the island in 1844. A subsidiary company, The Kawau Company, was then formed. A mining engineer, Mr Nin- nis moved to another mine on Great Barrier Island about the time the Kawau mine closed in 1851. He established a home and store in Onehunga about 1854, and then a flax mill at Waiuku in 1860. The family moved to the Coromandel when gold was discovered there and Mr Nin- nis was superintendent of the Kuranui Mine and Battery in Thames. He died in Coroman- del aged 70 on July 1, 1879, leaving 11 daughters, three sons, 19 granddaughters and 14 grandsons. About 100 people are expected at the reunion, some from Australia, says Marie Le Blanc of Stanmore Bay, a great-great granddaughter of Mr Ninnis. His daughter Elizabeth is her great-grandmother. She says reunion organisers have had difficulty tracking the many family involved. Phone Marie on (09) 424-0349 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the family reunion.
