My Father was Gordon Wallace McLeod, and a fine Scottish name he had! Gordon was known as Gordy,Mac and Granpa.He was born in Vancouver Canada and migrated to New Zealand with his Father Harry, Mother Hannah and several of his brothers and sisters aboard the SS NIAGARA in around 1918.My Mother is Colleen Isabella McLeod born in Kaikoura New Zealand. She is the daughter of Philip Harvey Woodgate(Joe)of the Woodgates from the Queen Charlotte Sounds and a direct descendant of Maata Te Naihi of the Puketapu People of Te Atiawa. Her Mother was Emily Verna Woodgate(Verna)a Daughter of Walter and Emily Chapman who were pioneers from England and lived out their lives in Kaikoura.
