Thank you very, very much for you quick response.
Are you able to advise if James (1822-1911) had any siblings?
I do have John Climo as his father and Mary as his mother BUT as her maiden name I have as Mann? Do you think somewhere along the line this has been shortened accidentdly?
And are you willing to advise to which part of the family tree you are part of?
My family tree is with Myheritage. Would you like me to send an invitation for you to join?
So many questions...LOL
Regards

hi again,

have you ben to the James Climo link above?? there is a ton of fantastic reading on each of their lives supplied by a number of sources

I know there are no siblings for James on his tree at present.
I will work on that today and if you keep an eye on that page from time to time you may see any updates

In James's OBITUARY and other newspaper references they all say he was either 91, in his 92nd year, or one even said he was 93 which would mean a birth year of about 1820.
He was 20 on the ships passenger list which mean a birth year of 1820 !!!
BUT, also, in the same newspaper articles they actually write his birth date as 28 January 1822 in Bodmin, Cornwall, which would have made him 89!!! - so much for their proof-reading :)

from his page on the tree

13 September 1911
OBITUARY - MARLBOROUGH EXPRESS
With reference to the death of Mr James Climo, who died in Havelock on Sunday, the Pelorus Guardian says:-

The late Mr Climo, who was a native of Cornwall, arrived in Havelock in August, 1860, comng up the Sound with the Hon. C. H. Mills on that gentleman`s first visit to the town. On landing, he found the site of the present town was covered in snow. He went to work for David Wells, across the Bay. At that time Mr William Wells was keping an accomodation-house in Havelock, and Mr W. Farnell, sen., was living in a lean-to on the section opposite Mr A. Scott`s present residence. Mr John Wilson had an accommodation-house near Canvastown.
There was no road, in those days, between Blenheim and Havelock - only a bridle-track, and Mr Climo and a mate went out to the Kaituna and cut, by means of pit-sawing, the first timber ever cut in that Valley; they cut 20,000 feet of timber for Messrs Bashford and Wylie, having to take the trees only from the Government road, a chain in width.
In December of 1860 he left for Picton, where he had to pay 10s a week for a room about 12 x 10, through the walls of which one could easily push one`s fingers; he could not rest at night owing to the mosquito plague.
Mr Climo was one of the first to work for Captain Dalton, at his mill.

In 1863, Mr Climo came to the Pelorus Sound and lived at Kaiuma, where he worked at the sawmill owned by Messrs Cornfoot, Robertson, and Parker

Mr Climo arrived, with his wife, in New Plymouth on 1st April, 1841, and their first child - which was also the first white child born in that town - was born on 5th November, 1841
Next year he left New Plymouth and went to Kawhia, and whilst there Governor Hobson paid the settlement a visit; the Governor nursed the baby, the late Mrs George Pope, sen., of Havelock

On returning to Taranaki, Mr Climo was shipwrecked at the Heads, and lost everything. He and his wife had to carry their two children on their backs for ten days, living on native food and fording the rivers. They settled in Taranaki until the war broke out, when Mr Climo was called out with the militia, armed, and drilled for defence purposes.
In an engagement with the natives on 29th March, 1860, he was severely wounded, (through the lower part of his right lung) at Waireki and suffered more or less ever since from effects of it. As soon as he was able to leave the hospital, he was invalided to Nelson, and that was how he eventually came to the Pelorus.

In August, 1862, he left Blenheim for Lyttelton, overland, stopping on his way at a place known as "Giggerego", between Flaxbourne and the Clarence. Mr Climo and his son sawed timber at this place for an accommodation-house and school, for a Mr Tittley.
They then went on to Lyttelton, went back to Wellington, and again returned to Picton. Mr Climo also walked from New Plymouth to Auckland; his wife and family went in a schooner, which went ashore on the Manakau Bar; the Rev. Mr Ward, the first Primitive Methodist Minister in New Zealand, was a passenger on this schooner.

Mr Climo remained in the Manakau for three years, working amongst the kauri mills; he was there when the Californian diggings broke out. Shortly afterwards, Mr Climo returned to this district, and had resided her ever since


27 September 1911
from the MARLBOROUGH EXPRESS

The late James Climo, who died recently in Havelock. aged 93 (sic) was no race-suicider (says the Guardian). He left descendants totalling 225, not counting 36 that have died. Details of this imposing list show that there were 14 sons and daughters, 91 grandchildren, 144 great-grandchildren, and 12 great-great-grandchildren; total 261.
The deaths were:
* 8 sons and daughters
* 21 grandchildren
* 6 great-grandchildren
* and 1 great-great-grandchild

30 December 1911
- wife Amelia (formerly Russell nee Kingcome)
- Only four months ago (says the Pelorus Guardian) we had to record the sad death of Mr James Climo at his residence in Havelock, and on Friday last, the widow of that old pioneer passed quietly away at the Havelock Cottage Hospital. The deceased had been failing in health for some time, and on the Tuesday preceding her death, was conveyed by Dr Williams to the Hospital, where she died on Friday at 9 o`clock.
Mrs Climo was of English origin, born in one of the picturesque villages in Devonshire. Along with her sister she landed at New Plymouth in the year 1877, both having left their native village to join their brother, who, sad to relate, only survived their arrival by 12 months.
Her marriage to the late Mr Climo, who was her second husband, took place in 1885, and she leaves one sister, and several nephews and nieces, there being no family to the second marriage.
The body was interred in the Havelock cemetery on Sunday, the Rev. E. H. Pain officiating. The deceased was 73 years of age

Thanks once again.
I have printed all the info and read through it. Much of which I had perused on screen. There is nowhere in the notes that refers to James as James "Booking" Climo.
Also nothing to refer to his parents either.
I have checked through some of the "other family trees" I have joined..
Some have John as his father, Mary as his mother and one has Emily(1852-1902) as his sibling??
I think I need to dunk my head in iced water to clear my mind!! LOL
Do you John Climo as (1799-1847)And is he known by John Saunders James Climo??

by ngairedith on 2011-11-26 23:15:32

there is no reference to James as James Booking Climo because he is NOT James Booking Climo :)

It is VERY possible that James had a sister Emily, in fact, I have only 3 siblings at this time but I bet there were many others. I have yet to do further researh on that. I changed his mothers name from Tarman to Mann for the moment anyway, as nearly all sources list her as that ...

James's father John Climo (1799-1847) was not known as John Saunders Climo who was another Climo from Cornwall.
John Saunders Climo was born 1789 in Bodmin, Cornwall to Matthew Climo and Ann Saunders. This John married a least 3 times and he died in 1966 aged 76

Wow!!
OK, after John Climo...I have his father:

Thomas Climo-1758 (Clymoe) married to Catherine nee Burton

His father:
John Climo-1725(Clemo) married to Joice nee Bunster

His father:
George Petherick Climo-1692 married to Margory nee Goodfellow

Do these names mean anything to you?

Hey, are you in NZ or Aus??
