      Richard Huffam emigrated from West Cowes IOW to New Zealand in 1868 in Barque "Fanny" with his father Timothy and his brothers. The Mother and only sister Mary had died. The father was tired of city life and customs and wealth and he wanted to take his 4 boys away from it all to live a natural life in country surroundings.Richard was then 15 years of age.
      Timothy leased a section of the barque packed what they would take and with the boys started their venture and new life. For boys ranging from 19 to 13 it was very exciting and all they could wish for. For some time they lived away from all human contact living on fish game wild fruit goat milk all of which was abundant. Once in a while they would carry their products to market. This trip took several days.
      At the age of 24 Richard married and moved into civilization, By then his oldest brother was married and had two children.The youngest brother never married and lived to 95 years of age
