A. Phillip Tapsell, a Danish national born Hans Homman Jensen Falk in Copenhagen in the late 1770s, has claimed a place in New Zealand’s history books as one of the first settlers to integrate with Maori tribes of the period. His family members have gone on to become influential on both a local and national political level and are particularly famous in the Tauranga region of North Island New Zealand.
B. Tapsell lived in Copenhagen with his parents Jens Hansen Falk and Maria Dorothea Esmarck until his mother died when he was 8 years old, after which, he was sent to live with his grandparents for a period of two years before returning to his hometown for schooling. His employment in the shipping industry began in the early 1790s and a decade later he joined ships in England. It was there that he changed his name to Phillip Tapsell. It is said that his intention was to rename himself ‘Topsail’ after the topsail of a sailing ship but that this was routinely misinterpreted to Tapsell. His first experience of the southern hemisphere was on early whaling expeditions that regularly took him to the Bay of Islands in Northland, New Zealand.
