Charles Rex Herriott/Charles Herbert Small
My paternal great grandfather was born in Riverton, west Southland about late 1880s of Ngai Tahu descent. He also is known as Herrett/Heriot/Herriott or Small, his registered name on my nannys death cert. I am really keen to hear from anyone who may have a similar search from down that way. Noho ora ra.
