  • Notes 
    • Long established NZ family of Livonian/Estonian origin.
    • Nicholas von Tunzelmann was one of the first Europeans to settle the Wakatipu area. "It was in [1860] that William Gilbert Rees and Nicholas von Tunzelmann made their way down the Cardrona Valley over the Crown Range and down to the Queenstown Bay. They had been part of a party of men who set out from Oamaru and travelled through Wanaka. Many of the party turned back due to the harsh conditions but Ress and von Tunzelmann liked what they saw at Queenstown Bay and returning to Dunedin they applied for grazing licences for the area."
