George DIBBERN

(1889 - 1962)
George DIBBERN (1889-1962)
George DIBBERN was born on 26 March 1889 in Kiel.1

For a full story of George's astonishing life, readers are referred to the superb website at http://georgedibbern.com - but special mention must be made of some details, as these became part of our family folk-lore. He had a wife in Germany (Elisabeth Vollbrandt, married 1921) and daughters Frauke Wahine (1922), Elke Maata (1924) and Sunke Tai (1925) but spent much of his life aboard the 32-foot ketch Te Rapunga (named after the third of eighteen steps in the New Zealand Maori creation myth).1

After winning the Auckland to Melbourne race of 1934 in Te Rapunga, followed by the Melbourne-Hobart race (1935), George DIBBERN returned to Auckland and embarked with a crew of Maurice Black, Roy Murdock and Eileen Edith MORRIS for an extended voyage to Rarotonga and Tahiti.
In 1941 he and Eileen arrived in Napier and George was interred on Somes Island (for the second time) as an enemy alien, not having his yacht returned until 1946.

In 1950 he won £10,000 in a Tattersalls lottery, but gave half to the man who gave him the ticket for covering his work shift. This enabled the purchase of Satellite (Woody) Island, followed by Partridge Island - he and Eileen farmed Woody Island for 3 years before they parted ways.1

He had a defacto relationship with Eileen Edith MORRIS, daughter of Charles Edwin MORRIS and Edith Maud ARMSTRONG, which resulted in the birth of their daughter, but they did not marry due to George's existing family in Germany.

George died on 12 June 1962 in Auckland, Auckland, at age 73 of a heart attack.1
