Electoral Roll DUNEDIN Otago 1893 - sunames starting A

Journal by ngairedith

The city of DUNEDIN has played an important role in the history of New Zealand ...
... The discovery of gold inland from Dunedin in 1861 led to the new city becoming the colony's main industrial and commercial centre.
The successful export of frozen meat provided an extra impetus to Dunedin's importance and growth, as did the establishment of the country's first university, founded in 1869 (read more at link above)

This site on Dunedin, the second-largest city in the South Island, includes photos and 'Panoramas' taken from Mount Cargill, Flagstaff and Signal Hill

Dunedin is also famous for the HOCKEN COLLECTIONS which was the vigorous collecting and subsequent generosity of a Dunedin doctor, Thomas Morland Hocken (1836-1910)

A list of all the SUBURBS of DUNEDIN with photos

taken from Hocken Collections above which has links to the collections of maps, pictues and much more
... As a doctor, and coroner for 22 years, T.M. Hocken became one of the city's best-known figures - 'a neat, dapper little man, with a short-clipped beard and dark lively eyes. Bustling, energetic, intensely industrious, he had a winning personality and infectious enthusiasm.'

Hocken applied his drive and talent to the acquisition of books, newspapers, maps, pamphlets, photographs, pictures and artifacts relating to New Zealand, the Pacific and early Australia. He shared his knowledge widely through lectures, exhibitions, his own books and writings and the important Bibliography of the Literature relating to New Zealand, published in 1909.

In 1897, Dr Hocken offered his fine collection to Dunedin and the people of New Zealand. Public subscription lists opened in 1906, and a Deed of Trust was drawn up by which the Hocken Collection was housed in a special wing added to the Otago Museum, and managed by the University of Otago in trust for the nation. Too ill to attend the opening on 23 March 1910, Dr Hocken died two months later.

- the DUNEDIN ELECTORAL ROLLS -

The original list was taken from the "Dunedin Electoral Roll" link directly below and formerly known as the Caversham Project (Class, Gender and the Opportunity Structure in an Emergent Urban-Industrial Society, Dunedin's Southern Suburbs, 1881-1940)
- it was correct to 4 Nov 2010

Visit the above link for your Dunedin Ancestors
It has 169,234 individual Electoral Roll results for the 45 years 1893 to 1938 (from 14 Electoral Rolls over that period) and is viewable with the following results:
YEAR - SURNAME - FIRSTNAMES - STREET NUMBER - STREET - SUBURB - OCCUPATION - OCCUPATIONAL SPECIFICATION - OCCUPATIONAL CLASS - YEAR OF BIRTH - SOURCE OF YEAR OF BIRTH - SURNAME PHONETIC CODE - FIRSTNAME PHONETIC CODE and PROJECT ID NUMBER
... it is very comprehensive and should help you tremendously

The Electoral Roll Results for Dunedin are available (at the above site) for the following years (number on each Roll in brackets):
1893 (1,041) - 1896 (5,020) - 1899 (5,835)
1902 (6,456) - 1905 (6,977)
1911 (13.035) - 1914 (13,075) - 1919 (14,937)
1922 (14,485) - 1925 (15,242) - 1928 (17,665)
1931 (18,481) - 1935 (18,300) - 1938 (18,685)

Of interest, to show how quickly Dunedin grew over those 45 years, I have broken down the surname stats:
(remember, some people may have lived there for the whole 45 years and therefore were counted every year)

SURNAME starts with - NUMBER ON ROLL in 1893 = TOTAL to 1938

A - 36 = 5,375

B - 108 = 15,271

C - 104 = 13,958

D - 17 = 7,572

E - 12 = 2,587

F - 44 = 6,505

G - 33 = 8,102

H - 76 = 13,338

I - 9 = 1,095

J - 26 = 4,371

K - 12 = 4,318

L - 36 = 6,392

M - 158 = 23,587

N - 12 = 2,337

O - 13 = 2,199

P - 59 = 7,925

Q - 0 = 365

R - 54 = 9,551

S - 95 = 14,112

T - 54 = 6,921

U - 4 = 221

V - 1 = 704

W - 73 = 11,817

Y - 5 = 614

Z - 0 = 7

My endeavour is to eventually add all the names from the Dunedin Electoral Roll of 1893 (in alphabetical order)

My lists differ slightly from the original site as I have arranged them into alphabetical order for easier research and will add any personal info as found. The original site has a lot more information like, who was at the same address that night, etc etc
