Journal by ngairedith

the known GEBBIE marriages in New Zealand 1855 - 1930:
NOTE taken from GEBBIE'S VALLEY (written in 1903) ... is a fine sheep-farming district on the Peninsula, twenty-three miles by rail from Christchurch, on the Christchurch-Little River railway line. A fine road for coaches and bicycles runs through the valley to Governor's Bay. The valley is named after the late Mr. Gebbie, one of the pioneer settlers, and the country is devoted to sheepfarming. On the flats large crops of wheat and other grain are grown, as the land is very fertile. The district is a prosperous one, and the lands are still held by the original owners or their descendants. Fine views of Lake Ellesmere and the neighbouring country are obtainable from the hills, whence the gazer also sees the Pacific Ocean to the east and south, and, away northwards and westwards, the Canterbury Plains stretching to the edge of the Southern Alps. The local post office receives and despatches a mail four times a week, and it has also a telephone service

NOTE from the Gebbie Valley link above: Mr. John Gebbie, of Gebbie's Valley, was born in Ayrshire, Scotland, in 1822, and came out to the Colony under the New Zealand Association in 1840, in the ship Aurora. After passing three years in Wellington he came to Riccarton in 1843. He settled at the head of Port Cooper, (now Lyttelton), in 1845, and leased land from the natives, as he could not get possession of, or a transfer for the land, which he had bought in London. He subsequently took up the valley, which came to be known by his name, and stocked the land with dairy cattle, the produce of which was sold chiefly in Wellington. Mr. Gebbie died in 1850, and the valley became the property of his second son, Mr. John Gebbie, who was born at Petone, Wellington, in 1840. He greatly improved the valley as a property. While doing this he also took an active part in public affairs, and was a member of the Akaroa County Council, and the road board, a director of the Saleyards Company, and chairman of the local school committee. In 1865 he married Miss Cryer, and when he died in 1888 he left a family of four sons and five daughters.

I'm in the process of doing research for dylanbnz (message 2013-08-10 22:37:27) so a number of journals will need to be 'tidied up' & linked to start making sense of the connections ...
