ABLEY, Frederick - 20 Jan 1905 aged 36
Otago Witness, 25 Jan 1905
The body of a man named Fred Abley, aged thirty-six, missing since Saturday week (7th Jan), came out to the colony as a fireman and greaser on the Tokomaru two months ago, was found alongside the wharf at Bluff on Thursday after the departure of the Theresa Ward for the island. He was last seen on the evening of the 7th inst; walking down the wharf with a parcel under his arm and it is supposed that he fell between the wharf and the cutter variance when trying to get on board. Apparently the body was churned up from the bottom by the Aotea, which took its departure on Wednesday and carried underneath the wharf to the other side by the action of the waves. Deceased leaves a wife and two children in County Essex, England

BUTCHER, Frederick - 29 July 1914 aged 65
Mataura Ensign, 30 July 1914 THE BLUFF FIRE One of the biggest fires that has ever occurred at Bluff for over a decade commenced in the Club Hotel Buildins at midnight on Tuesday. By the fire at Bluff in the Club Hotel buildings in the early hours of Wednesday (29th) morning three lives were lost namely Peter MONSON (55), Fred BUTCHER (66) and John Thomas BROOK (22)
Brook, a Private in the Bluff territorials, was a fireman and lodged at the hotel. He was due at his work in the railway shed at six o'clock and as he did not turn up inquiries were made. Brook had only arrived from Lumsden the previous week to take up his duties at the Bluff. He was a single man, 22 years of age. On the night preceding the fire he arrived at the hotel from a hard day's work and his remark to one of the hotel staff was, "I am dead tired and I am going to have a good sleep." He went straight to his room and from that minute nothing was seen of him again. A careful search of the place failed to reveal any human remains under the bedroom he occupied (room 6) but it is possible that the unfortunate man had groped his way out into the corridor and had been overcome by the heavy smoke.
Monson was an American Swede and had been employed on the barque Irene as ship's carpenter. His charred body was found in a bent-up tangled wreckage of the bedstead (room 15), where he was evidently suffocated in his sleep.
Butcher, the third victim, commonly known as "Blucher", was a well-known identity, an old character of both Invercargill and Bluff, being an ex man-o'-warsman.
There were many heroic actions during the progress of the fire. Two of he maidservants were rescued in the nick of time, one being unconscious with her night clothes on fire. Another became stupefied and was unable to move when a man caught hold of her and carried her down the fire escape. The fire brigade rendered excellent service under trying circumstances

* James Clark was born Edward McGraw. Born in Liverpool, Lancashire, he emigrated to Otago c1857-1862. Edward married Harriett Jubber in Dunedin in 1863. After the death of their son John in 1866 Harriet left Edward to go back home to her parents. While she was there she found out she was pregnant with Margaret and her parents sent her back to NZ. Around this time, for some reason, Edward McGraw changed his name to James Clark. He then started working for the Marine Department as a Lighthouse Keeper and all records from then onwards are under the name of James Clark. He was first appointed to the Lighthouse Service on 1 May 1867 as a Probational Assistant Lighthouse Keeper at Taiaroa Heads.
He later served at the Nuggets and then Dog Island until his death by a fall down Dog Island Lighthouse, 23 May 1883.

COBBETT, William H - 30 May 1894 aged 20
Western Star, 2 June 1894
On Wednesday about 1.30pm, a body was observed floating close to the wharf at the eastern end at the Bluff. Messrs F. Fordham, A. Beaton and Smith took a boat and brought it ashore, when it was found to be that of the young lad Cobbett, who was supposed to have deserted from the barque Lochnagar during her recent stay at port. He had acted as a cabin boy and was a smart young fellow, fairly well educated, steady and popular among his shipmates. As he had left letters for London in his berth, also clothes &x., his shipmates thought he had probably fallen overboard. Captain Gasson thought he had deserted and, after acquainting the police, wrote him off the articles as having deserted. The body was much decomposed and it seems that the skull was fractured across the crown from side to side, indicating that deceased when falling overboard must have struck something. The night was very dark when he was lost and it is supposed that he walked over the wharf when returning to the ship. He was rather shortsighted and this may have had a good deal to do with the accident which caused his death. It is understood he has a mother living in London and that he was her only son.
