Midhurst New Zealand Not Midhurst? No, Midhirst in for full size

Cliff shown above from New Zealand and donator of the photograph, writes:- - My wife's Aunt lives in Heyshott, near Midhurst, West Sussex, so I know Midhurst UK fairly well. We saw this road sign when we visited Taranaki and I couldn't resist photographing it.

Midhirst - Midhurst ?
Flag of New Zealand by:- 3D

Midhirst is a small farming settlement situated on the North Island of New Zealand. It is located in the Taranaki region.

There seems to be 2 spellings of the town name.
The local Scouts movement calls itself...Midhirst Scouts, the Guides are called.... Midhurst Girl Guides.
SH3 - Taranaki in backgroundA local cycling guide, describing a route to follow says..."We will follow this more direct route. Heading south on SH3 to Egmont Village, then on through the small farming villages of Tariki, Waipuku, Midhurst, to the larger township of Stratford".(SH indicates an A road).
An official map, shown left, states Midhurst.
A sign on a local Government office also states 'Midhurst area' yet the town sign {photo left}says Midhirst
......confusing. Anyone got any answers?
To make matters worse the dormant volcano, which dominates and names the area, is called Mt. Taranaki...wait for it...or Mt. Egmont.
