    • BIOGRAPHY

      Maria Litherland was born on 6 March 1828 in Appleby Magna, Leicestershire. Maria was born illegitimately, the daughter of Elizabeth Litherland aged 21. Maria's mother died when she was nearly 3 years old and she was brought up by her aunt Lydia Litherland and her husband Thomas Wilson. Maria, her uncle, aunt and four young cousins migrated from England to New Zealand on the ship Berkshire, arriving in New Plymouth on 18 January 1850.

      Maria married Oliver Spurdle in 1854 in New Plymouth. They lived in New Plymouth until 1867 before moving to Waitara. They had nine children, six children while they lived in New Plymouth, and three were born in Waitara. In 1896 Oliver and Maria moved to Inglewood where two sons also settled. After Oliver died in 1911 Maria moved to Fielding and lived with her daughter Elizabeth. She died 3 months after Oliver in December 1911 and was buried in Inglewood Cemetery.

      Source: Janette Howe and Robyn Spurdle published Spurdle Heritage for the 1992 Spurdle family reunion. Much of the above information, by Carrol Crandall, is extracted from that publication. The book contains considerably more detail. Copies of the book are held at many New Zealand libraries.
