Kezia Baynes (nee Godfrey) (1834-1902).


My third great grandmother Kezia Godfrey was to marry three times. Born in London, she emigrated to South Africa in 1859 aboard the Matilda Atheling. Her first husband died there in 1860. In 1864 she arrived in New Zealand aboard the Steinwarder, her second husband drowning in 1865. Without any sort of assistance Kezia managed on her own with the children in very basic pioneering conditions for five months before being offered a housekeeping position for a Waiuku farmer whom she later married.
