Bay Road
From Summerfield Farm

New Zealanders call our native forests, bush. The forests are like your forests but with a thick growth of under bush. 
So when James Summerfield (s/o Henry & Rebecca) was killed while felling bush it would have been a tree that killed him.
The early settlers clear felled the native forest - bush to turn the land into farming.
