Summary: Gilbert MAIR had sailed on the whaling vessel "New Zealander" in 1820. At this occasion he visited New Zealand for the first time. When it returned to England on 2 March 1820, the missionary Thomas Kendall was among the passengers, together with Hongi Hika and Waikato, the two rangatira of Nga Puhi (check) that were the first Maori to come to England. In 1823 he made his second trip to New Zealand. On his first visit to New Zealand, Gilbert Mair had been in contact with the PUCKEY family: William Puckey and his wife Margery, their son William Gilbert Puckey (1805?1878) and daughter Elizabeth Gilbert (1809?1870). When he had first met Elizabeth she was only 11 or 12, but when he returned in 1824 "she had grown into a 15-year-old woman". They married on 12 September 1827 in Sydney, during one of trips of the Herald there. They would raise twelve children.
