Auckland Star, 20 February 1896 - Mr Joshua Ockleston
Mr Joshua Ockleston, one of the oldest and most respected settlers in the Hobsonville district, died suddenly yesterday. It appears that he was engaged on his farm as usual, and while lifting sheep into a cart he complained of a pain in his chest. He was immediately removed to his house, when all possible was done for him, but he expired in less than an hour. Deceased was 60 years of age. He was an active member of the Hobsonville Presbyterian Church, and frequently conducted the services, while he was also Superintendent of the Sunday-school. Deceased also took an interest in temperance and worked generally for the good of the district. His sudden end caused a shock to the whole district, for he was loved by all whom he came in contact with. He leaves behind him a widow and three grown-up sons. Deceased was a native of Cheshire, England
Auckland Star, 5 November 1929 - Mrs Elizabeth Ockleston
EIGHTY-FIVE YEARS RESIDENT - A very old inhabitant of Hobsonville, Mrs Elizabeth Ockleston, died on November 3 at the residence of her son, Mr R. Ockleston. She was born in Auckland 85 years ago. Her parents were the late Mr and Mrs Sims, who were among the hardy band of settlers who came from Scotland (on the Duchess of Argyle in 1842) was then a very small place, and in order to provide work for the new arrivals some of the men were employed cutting down Shortland Street at the magnificent rate of 2/6 per day (25 cents). It was not long before they ceased to require work found by the Government. Miss Sims was married in 1873 to the late Mr Joshua Ockleston, who had then been farming for some years at Hobsonville with his brother. Mr Ockleston died 33 years ago and his widow, left with a young family to rear, faced her task with that fortitude that seems to have been a feature of the women who came to make a hone in New Zealand in the early days. Mrs Ockleston was the last of the first generation of the Sims family, her brother, the late Mr Robert Sims, of Franklin, who only died recently (1842-1926), having been well over 80 years (84). The following children survive their parents:- Messrs J. Ockleston of the New Lynn Brick and Tile Co., Richard Ockleston of Hobsonville and W. Ockleston.
The funeral took place at Hobsonville, and was very largely attended, the Presbyterian Home Missioner, Mr E. A. Rimmer, conducting the service
