Wonderful book have my own copy to help with research, see Charles Rooking
Carter came up on it. anyone read the latest book about Charles Rooking
Carter, by Parliamentary Historian John E Martin. well worth a read!! have
my signed copy from John himself. as was able to assist him over the years,
here in Carterton and over in Derbyshire etc..
A Colonist's Gaze launched 2018 at Carterton Events Centre.
Through this NZ Rootsweb site, I was able to make contact with Mrs Rooking
Carter's relation here in NZ, never knew she had any until the lady in
person made contact with me, and she has visited Carterton several times..
so I owe a lot to NZ Rootsweb!!
Charles came from Kendal, so we arranged that Kendal Mayor should get a
copy of this very book, also their Library has one now.
