Thomas Power Decedents visit from New Zeeland

Thomas Power Decedents visit from New Zeeland

We Were delighted to host a visit from a group of Maori from Hamilton New Zealand who are descended from Thomas Power who left County Waterford in the 1830S . Robbie Neha and his Family are Trying to trace their Waterford ancestors . Robbie is a television producer / Director and he is making a documentary on their Power ancestor.  Tom Roa gave a PowerPoint presentation on the families history in New Zealand . Conner Power of Waterford county council brought them then to Dunhill Castle and they also met with the county and city archivist , Joanne Rothwell.
Willie was presented with carvings and paintings as donation to the Waterford County Museum . It was a most unusual and enjoyable evening and we wish them luck in finding more about Thomas Power’s origins.
