burials at KAIKORA North Cemetery, Otane

Journal by ngairedith

Ōtāne, Hawkes Bay, was founded in 1874 on part of runholder Henry Tiffen’s 5140-hectare Homewood estate, which had been subdivided into smaller farms. A township called Kaikora emerged during the 1850s and 1860s near present-day Ōtāne, but this declined after Ōtāne became established.

The cemetery is situated adjacent to the Wellington-Napier railway line, opposite the intersection of Carruthers & Knorpe Street. The first burial occurred on 24 Jan 1876. A meeting was called on 26 Aug 1893 to discuss procuring another piece of land for a new cemetery as the existing one was not suitable due to flooding. On 9 April 1894 a block of land was purchased on the Te Aute Road. The last burial in this cemetery was on 20 Dec 1903. It was gazetted as being closed on 21 Aug 1916.
Most of the headstones were wooden and carved out of local Totara, they were destroyed when embers from a passing steam train started a fire in the grass. What remained of the headstones were removed for safe keeping at the rear of the Otane cemetery

A memorial has been erected on the Kaikora Cemetery site along with two large boards listing the known burials, from which these names were taken

He was supposed to be a man named Gough and a brother-in-law of Thomas Lawless, of Te Aroha, but papers found on the deceased point to his being Walter Adair. The deceased was not seen when approaching the shaft, the doors of which had been left open for the purpose of lowering timber. Thomas Kneebone, braceman, deposed that he did not see anyone about the shaft on Thursday night. The outside gates were closed at the time of the accident and there was plenty of light to enable anyone to see the shaft. On removing the body a purse was found, containing a purse of 15s 7d and a memorandum book showing that his name was Walter Adair and a note written to his wife .. "Dear Annie - I send you £5; don't tell anybody I sent it to you - not even your dearest friend. From your husband W.A." He leaves a wife and three children at Te Aroha.

Daily Telegraph, 23 May 1884 Information reached the police station yesterday that a man had been drowned at Patangata, whereupon Constable Brosnahan proceeded there at once to make inquiries. It appears that Mr Ashton, who keeps a hotel about twenty chains from the river, was standing on the verandah talking with some persons, when they observed a man come by the coast road and enter the river at a point below the usual crossing. When he had got in a little way he seemed to try to turn his horse round to get back, but in doing so got into a sharp rapid and both horse and rider went over and the latter separated from his horse. Mr Ashton and the others ran to his assistance and saw the body floating away down the opposite side of the Tukituki but owing to the river being high they could do nothing. Some school children who were on a hill over-looking the river saw the body floating in mid-stream half a mile further down. Constable Brosnahan proceeded some distance down the river, but saw nothing of the body. The horse struggled out and returned the way it came. The man is supposed to be George Berry, of Kaikora, who worked for Mr Hickey, a contractor and camped at Oero, on his way home to see his wife who is ill.
At the inquest the evidence of Messrs Hickey, Stacey, John Ashton and George Fannin was taken and a verdict of 'Accidentally drowned' was returned, It appears that as soon as the news of Berry's death reached the camp, Mr Hickey and five of his men at once proceeded to search for the body but failing to find it that afternoon continued the search the next morning when the deceased was discovered three miles below here he had attempted to ford the river. George Berry was well known and respected and much sympathy is felt for his family who reside at Kaikora.

Hawkes Bay Times, 27 Feb 1874 In the Resident magistrate's Court on Tuesday, there was a charge of abusive language - Margaret McLennan v Neil Campbell.

The defendant, also addressing the dog in the same language, gave utterance to a still more offensive expression regarding complainant's family - the magistrate dismissed the case on the ground that the complainant had been the aggressor.

* 1 of 12 children of William Cheer & Sarah Ann Crayford
Hawkes Bay Herald, 16 Oct 1888 Mary Saunders and William Cheer went to Court yesterday. It appears that recently Mr Cheer was taking his case in a barber's shop and that the lady entered, also desiring to have her hair cut. Mary bade William good evening but was met with chilling silence. She demanded the reason of such cutting conduct and received a reply to the effect that she did not come up to his idea of good enough. Hot words followed on both sides and, as Mary Saunders alleged, she was knocked down by William. His Worship decided that fining William £3 and ordering him to pay costs and expenses amounting to £1 18s would about suit the case. To meet any difference of opinion on this point an alternative of 14 days hard labor was thrown in. Mr Lascelles appeared for Mary Saunders, William Cheer being represented by Mr Lee.

In 1874 he came to New Zealand in the ship “Winchester” and landed in Napier, where he found employment for about twelve months at the “Herald” office as accountant. He was next appointed master of the Kaikora school. Three years later he was appointed head-master of the Woodville school, where he remained eight years, then retired to establish himself in a general store in Woodville, which business he followed for seven years. He was a member of the Town Board for some years and in the latter part of 1894 was appointed town clerk. In 1860 Mr Crawford married a daughter of the late Mr A.

Daily Telegraph, 28 Sep 1886 HARTSHORN - At Patangata, on 27th inst., Edwin Hartshorn, in his 44th year. The funeral will take place at Kaikora at 3 o'clock to-morrow
Wairarapa Daily Times, 29 Sep 1886 The landlord of the Patangata Hotel, Edwin Hartshorn, who only recently entered into possession of the hotel, fell down suddenly late last night and expired immediately. A post mortem examination was made and an inquest held to-day, when a verdict was returned of death from heart disease
Waipawa This Day, 29 Sep 1886 An inquest was held at the Patangata Hotel yesterday before Mr Samuel Johnson, district coroner, on view of the body of Mr Edwin Hartshorn. Deceased was lessee of the hotel and had been in possession some six weeks, was in his usual good health and spirits. On Monday he went to Lawrence's sale and returned in the evening without showing any signs of ailment. After tea, as he sat reclining on the sofa telling his wife about the sale, he suddenly fell forward dead. The cause was found on examination by Dr H. A. Reed, who testified that the heart was the natural size and to all appearance healthy, the left side was healthy and also the right, but in the right ventricle and in the pulmonary artery was a large clot of blood completely covering the orifice; the clot had been formed before death, probably in some part of the circulation and passing to the heart had there been stopped, causing sudden death through the blood being unable to get to the air. The case was a very rare one and known as pulmonary embolus. The clot might arise from any one of a number of causes, as for instance the kidneys being disordered. Deceased was a very abstemious man and much respected by a large circle of friends and was a member of the Bedford Lodge.

A man named Anthony Hussey, but sometimes going by the name of Bill Davis, was talking to two other men on the verandah of the Kaikora Hotel about 8 o'clock, when Hussey, without warning, dropped down, apparently in a fit.

Hawke's Bay Herald, 19 Aug 1880 The Waipawa Coroner has, somewhat strangely we think, decided not to hold an inquest on the body of James Johnston, who died suddenly at Kaikora a few days since. It appears that deceased, who was a Scotchman, has lived near Kaikora for some years past. His wife and family reside near Glasgow. Johnston was known as a reserved and somewhat proud man, who would not willingly lie under an obligation to another man and in all his dealings he was strictly honorable, never running into debt. On Sunday he had several glasses of spirits with Mr Moffatt and went away apparently all right, though he complained of a pain in his chest, as he had done for several days previously. Early next morning Mr Moffat saw him, when he appeared to be very ill and as he got worse Dr Todd was sent for. In the meantime Mr Moffatt, Mr Taylor and Mrs Collins attended to him, but he died before the doctor arrived. Two letters were found in the house. addressed to Mr Moffat and Mr Taylor. The contents of both are similar and are to the effect that when they were received the writer would be dead and he asked that he might be decently buried, his watch and clothes being sold to defray the expense. These letters were dated 25th July.

Hawke's Bay Herald, 31 Aug 1887 A man was found dead in his bunk at Mr J. Buchanan's station at Oero this morning and it is thought that death may have been due to an overdose of laudanum as a bottle containing some of that drug was found in the bunk. Deceased, whose name was Henry King, had been drinking heavily lately. An inquest was held. The evidence pointed out the same old moral - drink. The deceased, a country hand, makes a cheque, sets to work to spend it in drink, swallows a quantity of brandy, is attacked with insomnia, takes a laudanum as a cure and drinks too much. The verdict of the jury (of which Mr A. Dillon was foreman) was that deceased poisoned himself accidentally.

In 1888 at the Ormondville Road Board meeting to name local roads, the road where Messrs Lycett and Cross' timber-tram line was laid, was named Towers Road. Alfred & Harold bought the sawmill from Mr Rathbone in 1886, which had been laying idle for many years in Waipawa bush, for their works at Makatoku and Dannevirke. It was nearly destroyed by fire in Dec 1886 but was 'substantially rebuilt' by March 1887. In May 1889 Alfred leased the building at Makotuku which was used as a stationery shop and an office of the 'Examiner' and opened it as a general store. Mr Rathbone bought back the sawmill in Aug/Sep 1889. The Lycetts had moved to Sydney by then. Harold Cross was still there in Oct 1890 giving evidence in court as 'a late member of the firm of Lycett and Cross'.

Otago Daily Times, 11 Aug 1904 VENN - On the 7th August, at Dunback, William John Venn, late stationmaster at Dunback; aged 58 years. Deeply regretted.
A Dunback correspondent writes that general regret was felt throughout the district when the death of Mr William J. Venn, the esteemed railway stationmaster at Dunback, became known. He was colonist of 30 years standing. Born in England he became connected with the railway service and on arrival in the colony he received the appointment of stationmaster in the Hawkes Bay district. About 12 years ago he was transferred to Dunback where his kind and obliging disposition made him a very popular officer. Deceased leaves a widow and three sons and two daughters.
Otago, 9 Sep 1904 William's widow
