the 'residents' of MOUNT STREET CEMETERY, Wellington from 1841 ... Me-Mu names

Journal by ngairedith

the Roman Catholic MOUNT STREET CEMETERY is a protected heritage site in Wellington, New Zealand (click link for more). It was the first cemetery in Wellington for Catholic burials and contains the graves of the first nuns and priests in Wellington. It remained open until 1891 although burials continued in existing family plots until 1954. The earliest surviving grave marker dates from 1851, and the latest from 1954. Although only around 200 headstones survive, it is estimated that there could have been as many as 1150 burials. Many of the early markers were simple wooden crosses, which have long since vanished

- anything in italics is my addition
- dates may be of death OR burial


MEAGHER, Patrick - 4 Dec 1859 aged 44
- Patrick was born in Killenaule, Tipperary, about 1814. He came to New Zealand, via Liverpool and Melbourne in 1856/57 with his wife, Mary Dwyer - married about 1841 - and settled in Wellington
NOTE Thank you to Chris Maher for this message 29 July 2017 .. "Since about the beginning of this year I have been tracing my family history. Patrick Meagher was my ggg grandfather. His son Thomas was my gg grandfather. He also had a son Michael who was the Station Master at Upper Hutt. I have a picture of his gravestone which states (hopefully correctly) that he died on Nov 30th 1859 aged 44 years, which is different from your list. The Meagher name was commonly spelt Maher even very early in church records in Tipperary. My great grandfather James spelt his name Maher as did his uncle Michael(Upper Hutt Station Master) but Thomas always spelt his name Meagher

MORIARTY, Patrick - 2 May 1878 aged 22
2 May 1878 A fatal accident accurred this morning, on what is known as Oakes'contract at the Rimutaka tunnel, at which one man was killed and another severely injured. At daylight this morning several men went to work to remove the wooden scaffolding or "centering" placed underneath the roof of the tunnel, about four chains from the face at the Feathersotn side, while the concrete blocks with which it is lined are fixed in their proper places and cemented together. The lining of that portion of the tunnel from which the scaffolding was being removed had been finished about 14 hours, and the concrete blocks were supposed to have set firmly together. The unfortunate sequel, however, proved this not to be the case, for no sooner was the support of the scaffolding removed than the roof of the tunnel suddenly fell in burying the two unfortuate men under a mound of concrete blocks, earth, and stone. Their fellow-laborers promptly set to work to extricate them, which was a work of considerable difficulty and danger owing to the falling stones, and they had literally to be dug out. One of the buried men, Patrick Moriarty, on being got up, was found to be quite dead, having been killed on the spot, and completely crushed by the decending mass. The other, John Matheson, was found to be still living although badly injured and fearfully disfigured, having received the chief force of the blow on his face and neck. He was brought into town as speedily as possible by train, and taken to the Hospital, where his wounds were carefully dressed by Dr Johnston and Mr Monteith. His face is cut and laccerated in a most appalling manner, one fearful gash across his forehead having to be stitched up and he is severely bruised and crushed all over, but it is hoped that his injuries may not prove fatal. He was quite conscious at three o'clock this afternoon, and there are hopes of his recovery. Both Moriarty and Matheson are single men, and about 30 years of age. The unfortunate mishap occurred shortly after seven o'clock this morning
... Moriarty was about twenty-five years of age, single, and as far as is known had no relatives in the province. His body was removed to the nearest building to await an inquest, which will be held to-day. The accident is atributed to faulty construction of the framework
... John Mathieson was severly injured and is expected to lose the use of both eyes
