Ripening plums

This year’s Sharps Early crop is lighter than 2007’s bumper one. Far and away my favourite plum – I have known it all my life – harvested, as it is, at this special time of the year. Our tree is a cutting from the tree at Whitehall. Dad is still making relish from fruit frozen last December. His plum relish seasoned meatloaf is very tasty.

The short history of a tree: Dad says he is fairly certain the tree comes from the Scholes farm, next door to ours, at Whitehall (if you have reason to visit Whitehall Quarry – the remnants of this orchard can be seen to your left as you come up the rise from the bridge after leaving Whitehall Road). Trees grown from cuttings from the Leamington tree can, in turn, be found on properties on Mount Pirongia, in Te Puke, at Maungatautari and here in Leamington – if you know where to look.

The Williams line

The following is an extract from Generations of Genes by Phyllis Jeans 2000 ISBN 0 473 03868 4 (page 128 The Williams Line)

Albert George Williams and Minnie Dora Harwood

Parents of Evelyn Margaret Williams

Minnie Dora Harwood was the fourth daughter of Elizabeth and John Harwood. Born at Little River, Banks Peninsula, New Zealand on 5 May 1880 she was baptised in the newly built Anglican church on July 25, when she was nearly three months old. Minnie was the tenth born and eighth surviving child of the family and another eight children were born in the next thirteen years. Minnie’s childhood was in a household of many children with the resultant work, worry and turmoil. The Harwood home would always have been busy and boisterous with chores for everyone. On 27 March 1889, August, the second youngest of this large family was born. Minnie, almost nine when he was born, was to have a special affinity with this younger brother. By the time she was fourteen years old, Minnie had experienced the deaths of five brothers. These deaths are recorded in her parent’s story.
