Penrhyn Island (Scott# 25, SG# 32):

The "N.Z." is from when Penrhyn was administered by New Zealand, probably through the Cook Islands at that time.

You might also be able to see Captain Cook there with his sword out. Not very friendly.

Bingo!
I was just trying to crack the Pmk, in your other thread
You have 2 stamps both with ????WORTH

The one here is a Parcel Post Rubber Hammer, too damaged to read exactly, I thought initially KNEBWORTH, but there are oodlies of ??worth Postmarks.

Your other one Blue, has a part X in the CDS, indicating a time code.
Keep up the good work.

I want to think the first letter is a canted S or B. Props to rod for figuring out the WORTH part.

And yes, it counts, Mrita.

Cannot be an "S" only worth with an s, is Strawbridgeworth.

If the preceding letter is an E
it could be either
Fittleworth
Isleworth
Mereworth

Old English.
Worth meant an enclosure or an enclosed settlement (enclosed by a wall of wooden stakes).

I can see HB's "S" here
I think we have cracked it
Source philatelic web

ISLEWORTH originally called Gislheresuuyrth, in the year 695
