Mrs J. Prouse Dead - Keen Devotee of Music - Famous Artists' Friend [Portrait included with article] Formerly one of Wellington's best known personalities, Mrs Prouse, relict of the late Mr John Prouse, died at her home in Clifton Terrace (where she had lived for forty-five years) on Tuesday evening, after a long illness. Mrs Prouse's health had not been satisfactory for ten years past, and it had failed noticeably since the death of her husband less than a year ago. The late Mrs Prouse (nee Helen Hardinge) was born in Cardiff, Wales, and came to New Zealand in the ship Salisbury, which arrived here on January 20, 1874. Later she married Mr Prouse, and had, with the exception of trips abroad, resided in Wellington ever since. The love of music, so strong in the Welsh, was deeply implanted in this lady, whose record of achievement in encouraging the best in music in New Zealand is probably unique. This urge was accentuated by her husband's fine talent as a singer, and her constant association with artists and leaders of musical thought. When Mr Prouse toured England with Kubelik years ago, Mrs Prouse accompanied him and became the personal friend of Sir Charles Santley, Sir Henry Wood, Antonia Dolores, and many other famous artists. Distinguished artists such as Mr Andrew Black, Dolores, Mr and Mrs Albert Mallinson (the celebrated composer and singer), made Mr and Mrs Prouse's residence their home while in Wellington. Once when Mr Alfred Hill lay suffering from pleurisy in the hospital here, nothing would do but that he must be removed to Clifton Terrace so as to be under Mrs Prouse's special observation and care. It was Mrs Prouse who first detected exceptional talent in the Ellwood trio, of Christchurch, and who was instrumental in having Mr George Ellwood, now of Wellington, sent to study the cello under Jean Gerardy at the Liege (Belgium) Conservatoire.
Mrs Prouse was particularly keen about orchestral music. She had a knowledge of the best of the world's orchestras through her four or five long trips to Europe, and lost no opportunity of doing all in her power to bring about an improvement in New Zealand. Realising that the Christchurch Exhibition Orchestra was the finest ever assembled in New Zealand, Mrs Prouse sponsored a tour of that organisation when the exhibition closed. Through the failure of the Auckland season, the venture was not a financial success, and Mrs Prouse had to realise on some of her property to meet the deficiency. In sponsoring the first professional orchestra here (under the baton of the late Mr Herbert Bloy) Mrs Prouse had the idea of popularising Sunday orchestral concerts on the lines of those given at Queen's Hall, London and many will remember what a high standard was achieved by that orchestra.
On another occasion Mrs Prouse showed her enthusiasm for music in a remarkable manner. Madame Melba was associated prominently with the musical arrangements in connection with the festivities for the Duke and Duchess of York (the present King and Queen), when they went to Melbourne to open the first Commonwealth Parliament. Melba wanted a good baritone, so cabled to Mr Prouse to go across. Mrs Prouse accompanied him. She heard the band of the Royal Marines on the Ophir, on which the Royal party travelled, and decided there and then that the public of New Zealand should be given a chance to hear it, though the band seldom if ever was allowed to play off the Ophir. Being a woman of great tact and strong in purpose, her representations in the right quarters were successful, and this fine band gave concerts in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Mrs Prouse knew Italian opera thoroughly, having experienced two long seasons in Milan.
The deceased leaves a family of three sons and two daughters. The sons are Messrs W. J. and Oliver Prouse of Wellington and Mr George Prouse of Milan, Italy; and the daughters are Mrs George Anderson, of Buenos Aires, and Miss Constance Prouse, of Wellington. There will be a memorial service at St Paul's Pro-Cathedral at 2pm tomorrow. The interment will take place at the little cemetery at Wainuiomata, the valley associated with the family ever since Wellington was first settled, and where three generations of the Prouses lie at rest.

SUDDEN DEATH - The ploice early yesterday morning received a telegram informing them of a sudden death that had just taken place in the Wainuiomata Valley and requested that a doctor should be sent, but the constable omitted to mention the name of the person
Wellington Independent, 16 Feb 1871
INQUEST - The sudden death we mentioned in our last as having occurred in the Wainuiomata Valley, was that of a child named Herbert Morley Prouse, about 2 years of age. It appeared that some interest was created among the neighbours from the manner of death, the child having passed off while asleep. Dr Grace, after making a post mortem examination pronounced the cause of death to be inflammation of the bowels. An inquest was held on the body before Dr Wilford

Mr. John Prouse, the well-known baritone singer, is the third son of the late Mr. Richard Prouse, one of the pioneer settlers of Wellington, and was born in 1856 in this district. From a very early age he displayed musical taste and the possession of a good singing voice, and as a lad he was a member of the church choirs at the Wainui and at the Taita, where his family resided. Mr. Prouse, however, was of a rather retiring disposition, and it was not until 1885 that he made his debut upon the concert platform at Wellington. At a bound he leaped into popularity. His rich orotund voice, and his faculty for fine and true expression, at once proclaimed the born artist, and local musicians cordially welcomed the young debutant as an acquisition to the musical resources of the City. At the Wellington Musical Festival of 1888, Mr. Prouse won golden opinions by his splendid singing of the music allotted to the rôle of “Elijah” in Mendelssohn's immortal oratorio. It is only just to observe that Mr. Prouse ascribes much of his success as a singer to the careful tuition he received during two years from Mr. Robert Parker. Acting upon the strong advice of his friends, Mr. Prouse, in 1890, left for England, accompanied by his wife and family, in order to have his voice and method trained and developed under good masters. For twelve months he studied with characteristic earnestness of purpose under Mr. T. A. Wallworth, ex-professor of the Royal Academy of Music, and at the Academy of Mr. Wilhelm Ganz, the well-known song-writer, devoting himself chiefly to oratorio work. During this period he also found time to accept concert engagements at the Crystal Palace, in St. James's Hall, London, and in the provinces, receiving many flattering notices for his performances. Mr. and Mrs. Prouse and family returned to Wellington in 1892, and since then Mr. Prouse has taken part in nearly all the principal concerts given in Wellington, besides filling engagements at Auckland, Christchurch, Ashburton, Timaru, Dunedin, and Invercargill. He was entrusted with the baritone solo parts in several of the musical works produced at the Wellington Musical Festival of 1894, and for oratorio work both here and in the South Island his services are in constant request. Mr. Prouse has a great love for his art, and a deep sense of its grandeur and dignity. As a consequence, he has consistently eschewed its lighter and ephemeral side, and devoted himself almost entirely to high class music, especially oratorio, of which he is one of the best exponents in the Colony. He certainly stands unrivalled in New Zealand as a baritone singer in oratorio, and in the rendering of such songs as “Nazareth” (Gounod), “Thou'rt Passing Hence, my Brother” (Sullivan), “The Holy City” (Adams), and “Les Rameaux” (Faure). Mr. Prouse has derived much advantage in his musical studies from the musical taste and enthusiasm of his wife, and, in this connection, it may be observed that the artistic gifts of the parents have descended to their children.

Evening Post, 12 March 1894
Mr Richard Prouse, another of Wellington's pioneer settlers died last evening in the Hospital, where he had sought relief from an infection of the throat. Symptoms of the complaint only developed themselves within the last week or so, and on the advice of several doctors an operation was performed on him yesterday morning. Although he rallied at first, he was unable to withstand the effects of the operation, and he passed quietly away during the evening. Mr Prouse was only ten years of age when he arrived in the colony by the ship Duke of Roxburgh in 1840. Having undergone the usual vicissitudes of pioneer life, he settled upon land at Wainuiomata, and took a great interest in advancing the interests of the place, where he established a sawmill. He afterwards started another mill at Whiteman's Valley, Silverstream. Eight or ten years ago he retired from business life, and has since lived in Wellington. In his younger days he was an enthusiastic Volunteer, as a lieutenant of the Wainuiomata corps, and was a fine shot. His interest in this sport induced him to pay a visit to the recent meeting of the Rifle Association at Christchurch, where he handled a rifle. He leaves a widow and a family of three sons and three daughters. Two of the sons have established themselves at Levin as sawmillers, and the other is Mr John Prouse, the well-known baritone singer. Two of the daughters are married - Mrs Burdan and Mrs James Wood, of Wainuiomata. The remains of the deceased will be interred at Wainuiomata tomorrow.
New Zealand Mail, 16 March 1894
Another old identity has passed from among us, Mr Richard Prouse. Mr Prouse died at the Hospital on March 11th. He had been suffering for some time past from a complicated disease of the throat, and an operation was performed upon him at the Hospital as late as yesterday morning. Mr Prouse, who was 64 years of age, came out to Wellington in the ship Duke of Roxburgh in 1840, when a boy of 10 years of age, and, after undergoing the privations attendant on settlement in the Colony in those early days, took up land at Wainuiomata, about 40 years ago. While residing in that locality he took a great interest in local affairs, and his death will be sincerely regretted by a large circle of friends and acquaintances. He retired from active life a few years ago, and since then has been living in Wellington. At one time Mr Prouse was an ardent Volunteer, and his love for rifle shooting followed him almost to the end, for it was only the other day that he went to the Rifle Association Meeting at Christchurch. He leaves a widow and a family of three sons and three daughters to mourn their loss. One of his sons is Mr J. Prouse, the well-known baritone singer, and the two others are sawmillers at Levin.

Evening Post, 24 March 1892 FATALITY ON HUTT ROAD
A fatal accident occurred on the Hutt road about half-past 8 o'clock last night, resulting in the untimely death of Mrs May Sandilands Thomson, wife of James(sic) Thomson, a well known farmer of Wainui-o-mata. The accident was discovered by Dr Baker, of the Lower Hutt and Mr Sykes, chemist, of Petone, who were walking to the Lower Hutt, when the came upon an express wagon lying overturned on the roadside, not far from Dr Wilford's residence, whilst a man was vainly endeavouring to release the horse from the shafts. They assisted him to do this, and, learning that his name was William Thomson, and that his mother was with him on the vehicle when the accident happened, search was made, and Mrs Thomson was found lying beneath the express, which contained a load of timber. Finding that they could not raise the express unaided, word was sent to the Lower Hutt, and several of the employees at Cudby's stables hastened to the spot and lent their assistance. When the vehicle and timber were lifted, and Mrs Thomson was released, it was found that life was extinct, she having apparently been crushed to death. The body was removed to a private house near at hand, to await an inquest. The accident is said to have occurred through a wheel of the express getting into the ditch on the roadside, the driver, William Thomson, missing the road in the darkness of the night. Inspector Thomson has forwarded a report of the sad occurrence to Mr Eb. Baker, Coroner, who will hold an inquest on the remains at the Lower Hutt at 4 o'clock this afternoon. The deceased was about 60 years of age and she and her family are well-known in the Hutt district
