NASEBY is a small town, formerly a borough, in the Maniototo area of Central Otago, New Zealand. It is named after a village in Northamptonshire, England

Winters in Naseby are very harsh. At its peak, the population of the town was close to 4,000, but by the time administrative boundaries were changed in the 1980s, it had become New Zealand's smallest borough, with a population of only around 100

NOTE There is a Samuel Nicholson Hodgins (1844-1879) buried in Southern Cemetery Dunedin.I believe he may have been a brother of George Hodgins. He was a Railway worker in Dunedin. On the morning of 5 June 1879 he was helping to discharge a truck of timber at the Railway Station. When a log, weighing about 100kg, was being slung, the friction brakes on the crane slipped due to being slippery by the rain and Samuel, who was standing directly under the logs, was crushed to the ground

Re:- "Ethel Alice Hodgins" became a McKay. (She married Charles Edward Stewart ETHON in 1917)
Hi guys I have looked I to this one and found a military history for her husband, with her marrying Charles Edward Stuart Elton 25 Jan 1917 in Trentham NZ, he died in Codford Wiltshire 15 Sept 1918 WWII from illness, the New Zealand Births Deaths Marriages has him as an Ethon, it looks like this was a data entry error as she remarried twice more. Ethel Alice Elton to John Herbert Kinniburgh 1920 and then to George Ernest Fitchett 1927, and she died 1981 in New Zealand
