First Name:

Penwell's of New Zealand

Updated September 19, 2001

About Our Family Research

My name is Eric Penwell from New Zealand. I am descended from Henry Penwell who came to New Zealand in 1862, from Devon, England. All Penwell's living in New Zealand are descended from him. Henry had a brother called William who stayed in England, and descendants of his currently live in England. I have established a comprehensive database of both families. Should you require further information please contact me by email.
