NOTES
* A John Alfred Burmester was a storekeeper of the 'Danevirke Tea Mart' in Dannevirke in the late 1880s (lived in Denmark street).
Bush Advocate, 7 June 1888 The partnership hither existing between James Cumming Fraser and John Alfred Burmester, as storekeepers, is this day dissolved by mutual consent. All debts due to the late firm must be paid to Mr J. A. Nurmester who will also discharge all liabilities.
J. C. FRASER
J. A. BURMESTER
Witness to the signatures - JOHN BARGH, Danevirke, June 2, 1888
* JOHN ALFRED Burmester also had the Mail run to Weber.
Bush Advocate, 7 November 1889 Mr Burmester made his maiden trip with the mail to Weber on Monday, returning next day. He reports that the road is not in the best of conditions for fast travelling, the journey taking him about six hours to accomplish. He considers the district a very fine one indeed - for mosquitoes - which are of a greatly superior variety to those about here.
* In 1890 he was appointed the Returning Officer at Danevirke. In 1901 he was a member of the Ruahine Mounted Rifles, as Sergeant J. A. Burmester, when they competed for the Coleman Shield
John's wife (Ada nee ?) was very involved in the community. She held a dancing class, wrote a couple of 'papers', entitled "Woman's Mission", "Reading', & "Mental Science", played the piano & organ and sung at numerous local concerts. She was on the committee of the Dannevirke Library and a member of the Dannevirke Debating Society.
* They had a daughter 23 July 1893, Vera Burmester. Vera married in New Zealand in 1919 to Morgan Cyprian McMahon O'BRIEN
In 1908 they were living 'back' in England when he wrote this letter, stating he had been a resident of over twenty years in the Hawke's Bay. They appear again in Auckland in 1918. Ada Burmester died 20 May 1926 aged 63 & is buried at Hillsborough cemetery, Mt Roskill Auckland. Her headstone reads: In Loving Memory of ADA, Wife of John Alfred Burmester. Alfred returned to England as did his daughter and her husband Morgan Cyprian Mcmahon O'Brien (1886-) (14 Winchester Road, Worthing, Sussex in 1932. Mays Hill Road, Shortlands, Kent in 1935)
I cannot find any link to the above family...
