New Zealand history

The Cutten family arrived in New Zealand in 1948 from Perth, Western Australia and settled in Wellington. We are descendants of Charles Cutten 1810-1869 and Eliza Furnell 1807-1869 who lived in Sandhurst, Victoria, Australia pre 1860. They had 6 children and Walter Claude Cutten 1846-1912 married Eliza Harriet Jessup 1836-? and they had 7 children. Walter was stationmaster at St Kilda, Victoria Australia. Harry Beechworth Cutten (1879-1956) married Alice Christina Bridge (1898-1969) and they had 3 children. Ron, Len and Harry. Len (James Leonard Beechworth) was my father. Len Cutten ( 1.5.11-1998) married Jean Dorothea Armstrong (19.3.14-2005) in Perth.


Growing up in Hataitai, Wellington, New Zealand

I grew up in Matai Rd, Hataitai and this painting is done very near where our family swam at Evans Bay Beach, every summer. I love this painting and I remember fondly those long hot summers at the beach.
James Nairn was a founding member of the Wellington Art Club and I recently joined the club.
