The man on the left is William (Bill) Torkington, the first Torkington in New Zealand. He arrived from Ashton Under Lyne (then a small town but now a suburb of Manchester, England) in 1886 with his three small children (Harold, Arthur, and Joe). Joe's son, Ted, is the young fellow on Bill's knee.
This web site is run by Nathan Torkington, Ted's grandson. My goal is to have information on the family history, the area of New Zealand we all hail from, and links to other Torkingtons online. Until then, check out Roy Torkington's web site for more Torkington goodness.
