where is the old flagstaff

Not really sure. Suspect it may be where the Devonport esplanade now is, near the Esplanade Hotel (previously Flagstaff Hotel - where the Auckland ferry docks). History regarding the old Flagstaff Cemetery is vague. Auckland City council may be able to help in locating the site.

Victoria Road, bordering the Esplanade (now known also as Windsor Reserve); was previously Flagstaff Road, then Devonport & Lake road before being renamed Victoria.

"Flagstaff Road - Devonport. The original name for the area, the Road later became Devonport (probably after 1886), Lake and then Victoria Road. Note there was also a Flagstaff Terrace before 1886" - this info can be found at http://www.aucklandcitylibraries.com/populartopics/resourcepages/localhistory/streetnames/northshorestreetnames.aspx

LynDC Exciting to find this! I am writing a book about Ngahiraka, who married John Reed and need permission to use some of this info. You can find me on www.jillsjottings.orconhosting.net.nz
I know exactly where the Reeds lived at Stokes Point, around almost to the end of Shoal Bay immediately over Auckland Harbour bridge. John Reed married Ngahiraka after her "husband" Dr. Arthur Saunders Thomson died. JillK.

I have the family back to 1860s JillK

JillK again. Do you have a photograph of James or John Reed? I think I saw a tiny one on the web but it as difficult to see. Sarah Von Sturmer signed John and Ngahiraka's marriage cert as did a Samuel James Moss brick layer 2nd husband of Harriet Anne Reed.
John and Ngahiraka had a daughter (Elisa) Mary Reed, born 5 months after John died.

Have just been informed that Mt. Victoria Cemetery, Devonport, was originally known as Flagstaff.

to my knowledge in my records ,(tucked away somewhere) James and Agnes were buried at Stokes Point,Back then there was a John the Baptist Anglican church at stokes point , and said they were buried there, but no records exist , and there are none of the records for early Devonport either, as the council has lost them ,-as they always do, Rusty,( my grandmother was Rosina Menary,)
