26 August 1909 Captain George Frederick Day, who died at his residence, Armagh Street, on Tuesday, at the age of 82, arrived with his father's family at Wellington in the ship Arab, in 1841. They gave the name to Day's Bay. His first visit to Canterbury was made in 1848, in a vessel called the Return. Seeing the possibilities before Canterbury, he returned in the next year as owner and master of the schooner Flirt. This was the first sailing vessel to ascend the Heathcote and Kaiapoi rivers. It was engaged in the timber carrying trade and the lightering of ships in port as well as conveying wool from the small coastal ports to the Home-going vessels. The Flirt brought from Pigeon Bay the piles for the first wharf erected in Lyttelton. By the Flirt Dr Barker and his family, from the Charlotte Jane in Lyttelton, were landed at Sumner and his goods conveyed up the river towards Christchurch. That vessel also conveyed to the ship Mautilus Mr Deans's first shipment of wool for Home. Captain Day piloted over the Sumner bar the brigantine Sea Serpent, the largest vessel that has entered the Heathcote and also took in the first coastal steamer Alma, which arrived in 1855. Captain Day had many experiences in the coastal trade when there were no beacons, buoys, or soundings to guide the mariner. On one occasion he was five weeks making a voyage from Lyttelton to Heathcote, in consequence of heavy seas and through being blown off the land.
In 1855 Captain Day began trading at Kaiapoi, and for some years held the whole of the Kaiapoi island as a grazing run for horses and cattle, and he was for some years licensee of the Kaiapoi hotel.
In January 1864 he was elected one of the first five members of the Kaiapoi Road Board, all of whom are now dead. In December of that year, when a municipal council was formed, he was one of the nine members elected, the only surviving member now being Mr Alfred Weston, who at present is residing in England.
Captain Day at this time was the fifth W.M. of the Southern Cross Masonic Lodge. Taking an interest in the sport of kings, Captain Day raced a number of horse; he owned Alice Grey, Hector Norman, Cobbler, Kohler and a brown filly by Towton, all of which ran at the early meetings of the Canterbury Jockey Club. He was an offical of the local race club, and a starter at the Kaiapoi Steeplechases, held about 1864-65.
For some time before his retirement, Captain Day acted as pilot for the Waimakariri Harbour Board
* from the Wiki site of Eastbourne ... Days Bay was originally called Hawtrey Bay. It was settled by the Day family who had emigrated in 1841 from Kent aboard the Arab. William Tod appears to have employed George Day to look after his interests in the area while he went south. They had permission to cut and sell firewood and timber. The Days built their house in the bay and operated a schooner that ferried early settlers between the Hutt Valley and Wellington. After their house was severely damaged by an earthquake, the Day family left the bay in November 1849 aboard the schooner Flirt, which was captained by their eldest son George Fredrick Day, and sailed to Lyttelton in Canterbury, where the settlement of Christchurch took place. By December 1849 the family had settled in Sumner and George Day had become a road construction overseer, while the rest of the family appears to have continued their firewood, timber and shipping activities.

DAY'S BAY, Wellington

named after the family of George Frederick Day (1827-1909)
The wharf in Days Bay was built by brothers Maurice (aka Morris) and John Kleinjan, who immigrated from the Netherlands and set up a successful construction company. The first step onto the wharf has Kleinjan Brothers carved into the concrete
- Days Bay has particular associations with the young Katherine Mansfield, as her parents owned a holiday house in the bay. The story "At the Bay" was based on her experiences of staying in Days Bay as a child.
