Royal Fencible Caption

These Images Represent How The fencibles came to New Zealand

In Ireland there was a Potato Famine. The Potato Famine meant that Irish people couldn't grow there potatoes. One day they packed their belongings, food, potato seeds and their tools. They were promised a new beginning in New Zealand, they were going to be fencible colonists. They went on a boat and arrived in New Zealand. When they arrived in New Zealand they were shown to there cottages. They were angry, it was not the promised cottage. They went back to the people who sent them here and wanted money for a new cottage. They finally agreed to give them money. They built there cottages and planted all the potato seeds they had.
