The WILKES Family + Peeress Town, Timaru

A journal written for Honeymeade who is looking for her ancestors. On 23 June 2019 she wrote .. Albert & Ann Wilkes and family were sent to Waimate after landing in 1874 off the 'Peeress'. I am a descendant of their second daughter Karen who at some stage changed her name to Carey Ann. She married in Timaru to Edward Newton. My mothers grandparents. Where and for whom did Albert work? ..

* I have first written about the 'Peeress' and the immigrants to Timaru. This will give Honeymeade and everyone else who had ancestors on the 'Peeress', an insight of what their ancestors arrived to, their living conditions etc.
* beneath that I have Albert & Ann Wilkes, their children, grandchildren and lives.

The PEERESS London to Lyttelton
PEERESS TOWN got its name from the ship 'Peeress' which sailed into Lyttelton 23 July 1874, then transported the immigrants destined for Timaru, on the steamers 'Comerang' and 'Wellington'. Living conditions were pretty horrendous, as noted below and those that were able, soon left the area to find better living accommodation.

Timaru Herald, 24 July 1874
.. The Ship Peeress, from London, Captain Miller, with 300 immigrants (164 statute adults) on board for Timaru, arrived at Lyttelton yesterday, 118 days out from Gravesend. Four births occurred during the voyage and six deaths. The telegram from which we obtain this information says that the passengers well be forwarded to Timaru today (Friday) by the Comerang, so that the vessel will not come to this port, as anticipated. The Immigration Officer, Mr LeCren, received a telegram yesterday, stating that Mr March, the Chief Immigration officer, had started for the South to assist in providing accommodation, and in distributing the immigrants and that he would be in Geraldine to-day. An advertisement appears in another column, intimating that persons desirous of obtaining labor will find immigrants open for engagement, after Monday next, at the barracks at Timaru, Temuka, Geraldine and Waimate.

Timaru Herald, 27 July 1874
.. The roadstead presented an unusual lively appearance on Saturday morning last, three steamers arriving pretty nearly together and another riding at anchor at the time. The one at anchor was the s.s.Maori, which arrived on Friday morning from Lyttelton with a large cargo, but owing to the heavy break on shore no communication was affected and she moved out to an anchorage about two miles from the land. The vessels which arrived on the following day were the s.s.Claud Hamilton from Lyttelton, with a small cargo on board for this port and the s.s.Wellington and s.s.Comerang, with the immigrants by the Peeress.
.. On the Wellington there were 35 families, 35 single men and 14 single women; and on the Comerang 16 families, 4 single men and 8 single women; also 5 immigrants from the Eastern Monarch.
.. The sea was, if anything, more boisterous than on the previous day and as there was no possibility of any communication being made with the shore, the vessels cruised about in the roadstead for a few hours. Ultimately the Wellington and Comerang dropped anchors for the night near the Maori and at about noon, after transferring two or three passengers to the Wellington, the Claud Hamilton proceeded on her voyage southwards. The passing of another night on board the steamers was not a pleasant prospect for the immigrants, but by a little scheming very fair accommodation was afforded.
.. The Comerang, as is well known, is well adapted for the conveyance of passengers and on the Wellington good shift was made by giving the married and single women the cabin and the married and single men the steerage.
Early yesterday morning, the sea being pretty favorable for landing, the Comerang and Wellington came to an inner anchorage and steam having been got up at the Landing Services, a cargo boat was despatched from each Service at about half-past seven, to take the immigrants and their luggage, the debarkation being concluded at about 11 o'clock.
.. A large number of persons assembled on the beach to witness the landing, some being friends or relatives of the immigrants. The immigrants, upon landing, were conveyed to the quarters provided for them, the families to the drill-shed on LeCren's Terrace, the single women to the barracks in North street and the single men to the old barracks on the Main road. The Wellington, after parting with her passengers, steamed away for DUnedin

Timaru Herald, 27 July 1874
THE PEERESS' IMMIGRANTS

.. Rarely has there been seen a larger number of persons on the beach at Timaru, than assembled there yesterday morning, to witness the debarkation of the immigrants by the Peeress, from the steamers Wellington and Comerang. A good many of the townspeople turned out and there were also present several people from the country, who had relations or friends among the immigrants.
.. A boat was despatched from the Landing and Shipping Company's Service and another from the Government Service at about half past seven in the morning and by eleven all of the immigrants were ashore, two boats being launched by the former service and one by the latter.
.. Altogether there were landed 51 families equal to 165 adults, 39 single men and 22 single women by the Peeress and five immigrants by the Eastern Monarch. Mr Marshman came down in one of the steamers in charge of the immigrants.
.. Upon landing, the immigrants were conveyed to the quarters set apart for them. The single girls were placed in the barracks in North Street, the single men in the old barracks on the Main road and the families in the drill shed on LeCren's terrace. The single women and men were very well provided for, but the families, as regarded accommodation, fared somewhat roughly in their quarters. A table with forms each side extended along the centre of the room for convenience at meals and two stoves were placed on one corner of the immigrants were obliged to camp for the night on the open floor, the room for cooking, but no sleeping accommodation was provided and the only partitions being one here and there that they erected themselves during the afternoon.
.. The single men look a very useful lot and the single women appear healthy, but the whole of the immigrants have a dingy look, a look however, that only requires a little good water and proper food to remove. They all speak highly of the officers of the ship and of the way in which they were treated on the passage, but stated that not being used to the ship's food, it had a bad effect on them. A number of the immigrants will be forwarded to the various barracks in the outlying districts today.

Timaru Herald, 27 July 1874
... as a rule the man who is not a bona fide laborer, thinks that he is and under this delusion fancies himself quite on a par as regard wages, with the thoroughly well-tried and well-seasoned colonial. He asks 8s per diem, his actual value being 5s and a refusal on the part of the employer causes the applicant to curse the country and vow he would sooner starve than take less than one shilling the hour. New arrivals are generally very conceited of the abilities, very ignorant of the ways of the country and very determined in the matter of wages ... more at link

Timaru Herald, 10 Aug 1874
Several of the newly arrived immigrants ex Peeress, began on Thursday last, the erection of huts on the Government reserve at Patiti Point. The men appear gratified with the help, little as it is, afforded by the Government towards the building of the cottages and naturally enough desire to quit with their families the barracks where they are so inconveniently crowded

Timaru Herald, 1 Jan 1878
.. In the course of some remarks which we made recently regarding the cottages occupied by immigrants on the Government reserves, we ventured a suggestion that the present tenants should be offered an opportunity of acquiring a freehold under certain conditions. We have since made further inquiries into this subject and find that somewhat cogent reasons are advanced for not applying the proposed course of action at least to Peeress Town. The land on which that hamlet stands was originally chosen with great care for a quarantine ground, for which it is admirably suited, by both position and extent.
.. There is no knowing how soon it may be required for its proper purpose and it would manifestly be unwise in the extreme, to alienate any portion of it. It is not by any means too large; but, even supposing it contained a greater area than is ever likely to be needed for quarantine buildings, the proximity of a crowded village in immediate contiguity to the barracks, would render the isolation of the sick practically impossible.
If, however, it is inexpedient to give the people of Peeress Town a permanent tenure of their habitations, on account of the land being part of a quarantine reserve, it is equally injudicious to afford them a prolonged domicile there. In short, if they are not to be allowed to buy their places, the sooner they are removed altogether the better.
.. The accounts which we have received of most of them are not such as to make this course appear in any respect an unmerited hardship. In the first place, it seems to us most unreasonable that able-bodied men should be enabled by favor to the Government to live free of rent and rates, while equally deserving people living just across the road, have to pay both. There is obviously no sense in such a system and it ought never to have been allowed to come into existence.
.. When we speak of the Peeress Town tenants living rent free, we are quite aware that a nominal rent of a shilling a week is payable by them. That, however, is virtually no rent at all, the ruling rate of rent of private property being considered; and yet, in a great many cases, even the shilling a week is not paid.
.. We believe that the Immigration Officer has actually sued for rent in one or two instances and though, of course, he got judgment, has never been able to get the money to this day. Then again, the sanitary condition of the place affords a strong ground for not maintaining the present occupation of it a day longer than is necessary.
.. Peeress Town is neither in the Borough of Timaru, nor in the Levels Road District, so that it is literally outside of any local control whatever. We have reason to believe that many of the tenements there are in an extremely filthy state; that there is no drainage at all and that the refuse and sewage of the whole village has simply been allowed to permeate the soil, ever since the first immigrants took up their abode in it.
.. We need scarcely say what the consequences of this neglect of ordinary sanitary precautions are likely to be. Not only is the neighbourhood already liable to suffer at any time from an outbreak of malignant fever, but it will not be suitable for habitation for a considerable time to come, even though cleanly habits may be observed for the future.
.. It seems then that Peeress Town has been permitted to drift, both morally and physically, into a highly objectionable condition - a condition not compatible with justice or safety to the rest of the community. The Government are solely responsible for this anomalous state of things; and on them alone devolves the task of remedying it.
.. We recognise at once the difficulties which present themselves to removing the population from a spot where they may be deemed to be settle by a kind of left-handed tenure. We do not, however, at all go with those who say that, wrong and foolish as it may have been to allow any kind of right of occupation to grow up, it is impossible to turn these people out of their dwellings now.
.. We say that, if it is just and necessary and for the general good, that they should be turned out, there ought to be no hesitation in adopting that course. House room is both plentiful and cheap in Timaru just now and employment can readily be obtained at high wages; so that the present time seems particularly opportune for breaking up the establishment at Peeress Town.
.. There are, we understand, a few families or individuals, not being immigrants, who are supplied with a house there, avowedly as a benevolence. The position of these, must, of course, be taken into consideration and some arrangement must be made for their protection either at Peeress Town or elsewhere.
.. The rest of the inhabitants should be removed as soon as may be found practicable. It has been represented to us that this cannot be done, for the simple reason that the people will not go, unless compelled by force to do so. We do not think it at all likely though, that the authorities have any cause for anxiety on that score.
.. If reasonable notice to quit, say a month in advance, were given, we have no doubt that all the respectable cottagers would be found to have ensconced themselves in new homes, before the end of that period. The case of those who should persist in remaining, in defiance of everybody, could then be easily met by pulling down all the cottages and removing the debris.
.. This will have to be done sooner or later, because it will never do to have a collection of huts standing empty on the outskirts of the town, the haunt of prowlers and all bad characters. It will be necessary too to make a clean sweep before the reserve can be restored to a wholesome state. We would suggest therefore that the course we have indicated should be recommended to the Government by the municipal body and the Immigration Officer. As soon as it have been completely carried out, the quarantine reserve should be completely fenced and planted and temporarily incorporated with the Domain; thus furnishing a picturesque feature to the town and supplying the public with an additional recreation ground. A very thrifling display of activity on the part of the local authorities would put all these improvements in train and we hope to see the requisite effort made without delay.

Timaru Herald, 22 Dec 1882
We are informed on good authority that the Government have determined to cause the present residents on the quarantine and fortification reserve to remove to other quarters and to have the cottages they occupy razed to the ground. "Peeress Town" is picturesque from a distance, but the existence of such a set of shanties close to a town like Timaru is an anomaly that has called for removal for some time.

Timaru Herald, 24 Aug 1883
.. The collection of sod cabins which have collectively borne the name of Peeress Town for so many years past, will soon no longer exist and the sooner they are destroyed the better for the moral tone of the town.
.. Mr March, Immigration Officer, has given instructions to raze to the ground all the cabins at present unoccupied and to deal similarly with the others as soon as they become unoccupied. The land will then be sown down in English grass. Peeress Town is a suburb close to Patiti Point and has from time to time afforded shelter to some of the worst characters that ever infested Timaru.

Timaru Herald, 13 July 1886
PEERESS TOWN
The following report has been made on the above township by Mr March, Immigration officer. Mr March visited the township about a fortnight ago and has made the report at the instance of the Minister for Lands. The report is as follows:- "I inspected Peeress Town on June 17th. A number of the cottages have been removed eighteen families still remain there; they appear to be quiet, respectable people. I made private enquiries, through the police and could not find any serious complaint against any of them. The only fault the officer who collects the rent has to find is that some of the occupiers are in a position to pay and will not do so. As we stated in a previous memorandum, I am of opinion that (so far as the Immigration Department is concerned) these cottages have done their duty. It would seem almost a pity, however, in the present depressed state of the labour market, to pull them all down, as several of them have been made comfortable little homes. I found also that of the eighteen families, five are in receipt aid. In one case the husband is in the lunatic asylum. There cannot be a doubt, therefore, that if these cottages were all removed the South Canterbury Hospital and Charitable Aid Board would be called on to expend a considerable sum of money in rents. The reserve on which these cottages is erected is a reserve for military defence and may be required at any time. I mention this because I understand both the Borough Council of Timaru and the South Canterbury Charitable Aid Board are anxious to obtain this reserve. I had an interview with the mayor of Timaru who is also chairman of the Charitable Aid Board and gathered from him that the board would wish the cottages to remain as they are, on condition that the tenants who can pay their rents should do so and that the board should be allowed the use of these cottages which are at present occupied by charitable aid cases. As I ascertained that several of the occupiers were in a position to pay the rent owing, I gave them one month's notice to do so and also informed them that they must now find other quarters.

RENAUT - 3 generations of Sea Captains

written 18 May 1935
When Captain William Renault sailed the immigrant ship 'Blundell' into Otago Harbour on September 21 1848, after a long passage of 140 days from Britain, he began a family association with ships and the sea that has survived in New Zealand to this day. It is an association that comprehends the best part of a century, three generations of sea captains, the change from sail to steam and, indeed, from steam to motor power. But that long association in an official sense - by the retirement of Captain C. M. Renaut, son of Captain C. H. Renaut and grandson of the skipper of the 'Blundell', from the position of Superintendent of Mercantile Marine at Lyttelton.
The record of the Renaut family in New Zealand shipping must be a unique one. The 'Blundell' was the third ship to bring immigrants to Otago - the 'John Wickliffe' and the 'Philip Laing' had arrived earlier in 1848 - and she was the first ship to be entered in the Customs records at Port Chalmers. After landing 140 passengers at Port Chalmers, Captain William Renaut took the 'Blundell' to Wellington, Nelson and New Plymouth, for which places she had passengers

The Second Captain Renaut
With Captain W. Renaut in the 'Blundell' on that voyage was his young son, later Captain C. H. Renaut, who is probably best known in Canterbury as master of the 'Calaeno' and the 'Crusader.'
"The Crusader" wrote Basil Lubbock in his book 'The Colonial Clippers', was a very handsome little ship and she was considered by many to be the fastest in Shaw, Savill's fleet. In 1877, when commanded by Captain Renaut, she ran from Lyttelton, New Zealand, to the Lizard in 69 days and on her next outward voyage in 1878 she went from London to port Chalmers in 65 days, a performance which has never been beaten
Just as Captain C. H. Renaut, who died 20 years ago, worked as a lad on his father's ship, so also did Captain C. M. Renaut, who is shortly to retire, serve on a vessel sailed by his father. When he was seven years of age he was signed on as 'boy' on the Pleione and made a voyage in 1876-77 from Britain to Wellington and back, calling at Calcutta on the way home. He still has the discharge which was issued to him after that trip.

Sail and Steam
After leaving school he served in the sailing ships of the Shaw, Savill and other companies for 11 years. During that time he called at Lyttelton in the barque 'Trevelyan' in march 1886. That was his first visit to Canterbury. Obtaining his second mate's certificate in 1888, he served in that capacity in the barque 'Glenora' and then in the ship 'Cardigan Castle''. He passed for first mate in 1890 and served in the barque 'Annie McDonald' and in the steamships 'City of Cork, 'Avoca', 'Glenedin', 'Whitby Abbey' and 'Neva'. After gaining his master's certificate in London in 1892 Captain Renaut served as third mate in the Shaw, Savill Company's 'Mamari' and as second mate in the same company's 'Rangitira'.
In April 1897, Captain Renaut entered the service of the Union Company, signing on the steamer 'Moana' for her maiden voyage from Glasgow. After his arrival in New Zealand he served as second mate in the company's steamers 'Monowai', 'Tarawera', 'Mahinapua', 'Rotoiti' and 'Waikare' successively and then as mate in the 'Waikare', 'Warrimoo' and again in the 'Waikare'.
The only experience of shipwreck that befell Captain Renaut was when the steamship 'Glenedin', of which he was second mate, was wrecked on the Balaskar Rock on the south coast of Norway in October 1891. The vessel ran ashore in a thick fog at midnight, but the crew were later landed without loss of life.

OBITUARY of Captain Charles Malcolm RENAUT

A unique family association with ships and the sea has been broken by the death in London on Saturday of Captain Charles Malcolm Renaut, formerly of Christchurch. It was an association that comprehended the best part of a century, three generations of sea captains and the change from sail to steam and, indeed, from steam to motor power.
Captain Renaut's grandfather, Captain William Renaut, brought to Otago in 1848 the Blundell, the third immigrant ship to arrive there and the first to be entered in the Customs records in Port Chalmers. His father, Captain Charles Henry Renaut, was famous as captain of the clipper ship Crusader, which made record passages from New Zealand to England and also of the Pleione and other ships of the Shaw Savill's early fleet.
Captain Charles Malcolm Renaut, who was 69 years of age, first served with his father in sailing ships, later transferred to steam and for many years commanded Union Company vessels. He was appointed surveyor of ships in the Marine Department, Auckland, in 1911 and was transferred to Lyttelton in 1923, being appointed superintendent of mercantile marine there in 1919. He retired in May 1935.
Captain Renaut went to England early last year. He and Mrs Renaut, formerly Miss Isabella Ormiston, Dunedin, intended returning to New Zealand in November next. He leaves one son, Mr J. O. Renaut, London and two daughters, Mr R. T. Roberts, Wellington and Mrs L. M. Aitken, Christchurch

William Aitken & Elizabeth Towers - Otago

written for DrewMc who wrote on 2019-05-25 ..
Pearl Challis was my great Aunt and lived in Lumsden, NZ. Her father William Aitken, we think remarried after his first wife died, in 1910. Her maiden name was Aitken, she was often called Pearlie. This was a "nickname". Her Father, was William Aitken, born about 1871. William Aitken, married Elizabeth Towers, about 1894 in Dunedin. Elizabeth was born about 1873, in England and died on the 31st Mar, 1910 in Dunedin. Elizabeth Towers was the daughter of; William Arbuckle Towers, who was born about 1850. He died about 1889, aged about 39. Her mother was Ann Elizabeth (Ashwell) Towers, who was born about 1855. Pearl, was born on or around 1913 in Lumsden. We don't yet have conclusive proof, that Elizabeth was her actual mother, as the registration of a birth, had to be done within 6 weeks, of a child being born. However as Elizabeth had just died, this small formality may have been overlooked, after her death.
sorry Drew, you have two families mixed up. Pearl Jessie Gaines 'Pearlie' Aitken was born 19 Oct 1913 to William Aitken and Elizabeth Ann Gaines (1874-1936) not Elizabeth Towers (1873-1910). Pearl married Alfred Challis (1911-1989) in 1932. They died within 3 months of each other in Invercargill. Other children were born to William Aitken & Elizabeth Ann Gaines. One brother of Pearl's was George Ruben Aitken (1902-1985). Registered as George Thomas Mark Ruben Aitken, he used only George Ruben Aitken. You need to follow that line Drew
* I have fully researched both families for you
* Just for now, I will make this one public

Family of WILLIAM AITKEN (1870-1947)
.....~ PARENTS & SIBLINGS ~
ALEXANDER Aitken was born 24 April 1841 in Scotland to Thomas Aitken (1814-1899) & Margaret Cowie (1819-1892).
MARGARET Craig was born 28 Sep 1849 in Lanarkshire, Scotland to William Wright Craig (1813-1898) & Margaret Allen (1807-1901).

Alexander & Margaret married in Lanark, Scotland 22 Oct 1867. They sailed from Greenock, Scotland, 14 Dec 1867, on the 'Viola', with 125+ other immigrants, arriving in Port Chalmers 12 March 1868
OF NOTE One of Margaret's brothers, James Craig (1840-1924) had emigrated from Lancashire to NZ earlier and was probably their sponsor. James married Williamina McDonald (1844-1896) who emigrated into Dunedin on the 'Paria', 15 Aug 1867, in West Taieri, Otago. They also had 14 children

The West Australian, 1 Feb 1912
CORONER'S INQUEST
- SWAMP TRAGEDY. The adjourned inquest concerning the death of Thomas Aitken, who shot himself at Cloverdale on January 17, was concluded before Mr W. H. McCormack, J.P. and a jury yesterday. Alexander Aitken, a brother of the deceased said he was working on a garden property with his brother on the day in question. Early in the morning witness went out to work, but hearing the report of a firearm he returned to the house and discovered the deceased on the floor with his brains blown out. Prior to January 17, Aitken appeared to be despondent and was unable to sleep.
Dr Blanchard, in his medical testimony, said the top of the deceased's head was blown completely off. He was called to the house directly after the affair and found a gun lying across Aitken's legs. He concluded death was due to a gunshot wound and was instantaneous.
Letters put in by the police, one of which was written by the deceased the day prior to his death, indicated a troubled and disappointed mind in connection with financial affairs. One passage read: "What form of lunacy led me to such a God-forsaken place as this, or to think that I could make a success of it."
The circumstances were pathetic, as it appeared that Aitken had taken up 90 acres of swamp land close to Welshpool, but 31 miles from the nearest road. The approach was all the way through sand and in the second note the deceased made reference to "swamp lunacy." The letters also stated that sufficient money would be left behind, he thought, to meet his liabilities. From information in the hands of the police, probably between £930 and £1,000 will remain after all liabilities have been met.
The jury decided that Aitken came to his death as the result of a gunshot wound, self inflicted, whilst temporarily insane.

OBITUARY of Harry Arthur Ashwell Aitken. Harry was born at Dunedin, New Zealand, on November 30th, 1905. He studied at Otago University 1924-7 and graduated M.Sc. with honours in Chemistry. After holding a post-graduate bursary and working on the essential oils of Podocarpus species he obtained in 1929 a National Research scholarship of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research; during its tenure he investigated the sulphur in organic and inorganic combination in pasture grasses. From 1930 to 1932 he was chemist to the Goitre and Cancer Research Department of the Otago University Medical School and with C. E. Hercus and others, published papers on iodine in goitre, a paper with A. M. Begg on tumour regression and, by himself, papers on a continuous dialyser and on the determination of iodine in blood and butter. In 1933 Aitken was granted a University Free passage for research in this country, where he at first continued his work on sulphur in grasses in the laboratory of Prof. G. Barger and then migrated to London to take the Institute of Chemistry Fellowship examination, which he passed. Unfortunately, application to study had undermined a somewhat delicate constitution, leading to an illness from which he died in London on March 23rd 1934. Aitken was of a shy and retiring disposition and hardly became known to British biochemists as he deserved to be.
Otago Daily Times, 28 March 1934
Mr Harry A. Aitken
The friends of Mr Harry A. Aitken will learn with regret of his death in London on March 23, news of which was received in Dunedin by cablegram yesterday. Mr Aitken was a brilliant student at the Otago Boys' High School, from which he won a junior University scholarship in 1923, a distinguished graduate of the University of Otago and acted for some time as chemist in connection with cancer research. He passed the examination for F.I.C. only a few months ago. The deceased was a younger brother of Dr. A. C. Aitken, a distinguished mathematician on the staff of the University of Edinburgh and also of Mr L. M. Aitken, of the sub-editorial staff of the Christchurch 'Press'.

burials at KAIKORA North Cemetery, Otane

Ōtāne, Hawkes Bay, was founded in 1874 on part of runholder Henry Tiffen’s 5140-hectare Homewood estate, which had been subdivided into smaller farms. A township called Kaikora emerged during the 1850s and 1860s near present-day Ōtāne, but this declined after Ōtāne became established.

The cemetery is situated adjacent to the Wellington-Napier railway line, opposite the intersection of Carruthers & Knorpe Street. The first burial occurred on 24 Jan 1876. A meeting was called on 26 Aug 1893 to discuss procuring another piece of land for a new cemetery as the existing one was not suitable due to flooding. On 9 April 1894 a block of land was purchased on the Te Aute Road. The last burial in this cemetery was on 20 Dec 1903. It was gazetted as being closed on 21 Aug 1916.
Most of the headstones were wooden and carved out of local Totara, they were destroyed when embers from a passing steam train started a fire in the grass. What remained of the headstones were removed for safe keeping at the rear of the Otane cemetery

A memorial has been erected on the Kaikora Cemetery site along with two large boards listing the known burials, from which these names were taken

* GEORGE BERRY
Born: 1839 in Woodstock, Oxfordshire
Died: 22 May 1884 aged 45
husband of Eliza (nee Watts)
Daily Telegraph, 23 May 1884 Information reached the police station yesterday that a man had been drowned at Patangata, whereupon Constable Brosnahan proceeded there at once to make inquiries. It appears that Mr Ashton, who keeps a hotel about twenty chains from the river, was standing on the verandah talking with some persons, when they observed a man come by the coast road and enter the river at a point below the usual crossing. When he had got in a little way he seemed to try to turn his horse round to get back, but in doing so got into a sharp rapid and both horse and rider went over and the latter separated from his horse. Mr Ashton and the others ran to his assistance and saw the body floating away down the opposite side of the Tukituki but owing to the river being high they could do nothing. Some school children who were on a hill over-looking the river saw the body floating in mid-stream half a mile further down. Constable Brosnahan proceeded some distance down the river, but saw nothing of the body. The horse struggled out and returned the way it came. The man is supposed to be George Berry, of Kaikora, who worked for Mr Hickey, a contractor and camped at Oero, on his way home to see his wife who is ill.
At the inquest the evidence of Messrs Hickey, Stacey, John Ashton and George Fannin was taken and a verdict of 'Accidentally drowned' was returned, It appears that as soon as the news of Berry's death reached the camp, Mr Hickey and five of his men at once proceeded to search for the body but failing to find it that afternoon continued the search the next morning when the deceased was discovered three miles below here he had attempted to ford the river. George Berry was well known and respected and much sympathy is felt for his family who reside at Kaikora.
NOTE His widow Eliza next married William Megson in 1890. See notes under his daughter Emma Haycock below

The defendant, also addressing the dog in the same language, gave utterance to a still more offensive expression regarding complainant's family - the magistrate dismissed the case on the ground that the complainant had been the aggressor.

* 3rd of 12 children of William Cheer & Sarah Ann Crayford
Hawkes Bay Herald, 16 Oct 1888 Mary Saunders and William Cheer went to Court yesterday. It appears that recently Mr Cheer was taking his case in a barber's shop and that the lady entered, also desiring to have her hair cut. Mary bade William good evening but was met with chilling silence. She demanded the reason of such cutting conduct and received a reply to the effect that she did not come up to his idea of good enough. Hot words followed on both sides and, as Mary Saunders alleged, she was knocked down by William. His Worship decided that fining William £3 and ordering him to pay costs and expenses amounting to £1 18s would about suit the case. To meet any difference of opinion on this point an alternative of 14 days hard labor was thrown in. Mr Lascelles appeared for Mary Saunders, William Cheer being represented by Mr Lee.

Wairarapa Daily Times, 29 Sep 1886 The landlord of the Patangata Hotel, Edwin Hartshorn, who only recently entered into possession of the hotel, fell down suddenly late last night and expired immediately. A post mortem examination was made and an inquest held to-day, when a verdict was returned of death from heart disease
Waipawa This Day, 29 Sep 1886 An inquest was held at the Patangata Hotel yesterday before Mr Samuel Johnson, district coroner, on view of the body of Mr Edwin Hartshorn. Deceased was lessee of the hotel and had been in possession some six weeks, was in his usual good health and spirits. On Monday he went to Lawrence's sale and returned in the evening without showing any signs of ailment. After tea, as he sat reclining on the sofa telling his wife about the sale, he suddenly fell forward dead. The cause was found on examination by Dr H. A. Reed, who testified that the heart was the natural size and to all appearance healthy, the left side was healthy and also the right, but in the right ventricle and in the pulmonary artery was a large clot of blood completely covering the orifice; the clot had been formed before death, probably in some part of the circulation and passing to the heart had there been stopped, causing sudden death through the blood being unable to get to the air. The case was a very rare one and known as pulmonary embolus. The clot might arise from any one of a number of causes, as for instance the kidneys being disordered. Deceased was a very abstemious man and much respected by a large circle of friends and was a member of the Bedford Lodge.

ELSTHORPE
The remains of the late Mrs Haycock, wife of Mr T. Haycock, store keeper and postmaster, Elsthorpe, were interred in the cemetery here on Tuesday afternoon. A short service was held in the church. The Rev G. W. Davidson, Otane, officiated and Miss Gilmour played the 'Dead March in Saul'. The large assemblage of mourners and sympathisers proceeded in motor cars, traps and on horseback to the local cemetery, where the last rites were performed. The weather cleared somewhat during the proceedings. The deceased's husband and six sons and five daughters were present, also several of their husbands and wives and a number of grandchildren. The only member of the family who could not be present was Private C. F. (John) Haycock, who left for the front some time ago. Private Sam Linton, who is also at the front, was married to Miss Maud Haycock before he left. A large number of beautiful wreaths were received. The deceased and her husband have been resident in this district for 37 years. The late Mrs Haycock's death has evoked much sympathy for her husband and family and also for her aged mother, Mrs Megson, of Otane. The deceased was an active worker in connection with the Red Cross and made many comforts for the soldiers in hospital. She was most helpful to those in sickness and those who were requiring help. She was a member of the Anglican Church and attended church services regularly. Of a jovial disposition, she will be greatly missed in the district.

He was buried 'here' in old Kaikora North Cemetery (see notes under his burial above).

* JAMES JOHNSTON
Born: 1807 in Scotland
Died: 16 Aug 1880 aged 73
Hawke's Bay Herald, 19 Aug 1880 The Waipawa Coroner has, somewhat strangely we think, decided not to hold an inquest on the body of James Johnston, who died suddenly at Kaikora a few days since. It appears that deceased, who was a Scotchman, has lived near Kaikora for some years past. His wife and family reside near Glasgow. Johnston was known as a reserved and somewhat proud man, who would not willingly lie under an obligation to another man and in all his dealings he was strictly honorable, never running into debt. On Sunday he had several glasses of spirits with Mr Moffatt and went away apparently all right, though he complained of a pain in his chest, as he had done for several days previously. Early next morning Mr Moffat saw him, when he appeared to be very ill and as he got worse Dr Todd was sent for. In the meantime Mr Moffatt, Mr Taylor and Mrs Collins attended to him, but he died before the doctor arrived. Two letters were found in the house. addressed to Mr Moffat and Mr Taylor. The contents of both are similar and are to the effect that when they were received the writer would be dead and he asked that he might be decently buried, his watch and clothes being sold to defray the expense. These letters were dated 25th July.

Died: 30 Aug 1887 aged 53
Hawke's Bay Herald, 31 Aug 1887 A man was found dead in his bunk at Mr J. Buchanan's station at Oero this morning and it is thought that death may have been due to an overdose of laudanum as a bottle containing some of that drug was found in the bunk. Deceased, whose name was Henry King, had been drinking heavily lately. An inquest was held. The evidence pointed out the same old moral - drink. The deceased, a country hand, makes a cheque, sets to work to spend it in drink, swallows a quantity of brandy, is attacked with insomnia, takes a laudanum as a cure and drinks too much. The verdict of the jury (of which Mr A. Dillon was foreman) was that deceased poisoned himself accidentally.

In 1888 at the Ormondville Road Board meeting to name local roads, the road where Messrs Lycett and Cross' timber-tram line was laid, was named Towers Road. Alfred & Harold bought the sawmill from Mr Rathbone in 1886, which had been laying idle for many years in Waipawa bush, for their works at Makatoku and Dannevirke. It was nearly destroyed by fire in Dec 1886 but was 'substantially rebuilt' by March 1887. In May 1889 Alfred leased the building at Makotuku which was used as a stationery shop and an office of the 'Examiner' and opened it as a general store. Mr Rathbone bought back the sawmill in Aug/Sep 1889. The Lycetts had moved to Sydney by then.

Hello ngairedith. I have just enjoyed reading this journal and would like to tell you how much I enjoyed it. I have lived a few kms east of Waipawa since 1967 having moved here from Topgrass Road Dannevirke. Many names are still familiar in this district. Patangata Hotel gets a mention or two - the hotel is still in business and seems to be well patronised despite its relative isolation. The top storey was removed about the time we moved into the district and it now trades as a tavern. Similarly, the Otane hotel. Women had very difficult lives back in those days. My mother, who was born at Dyerville in 1914, spoke of the hardships her mother endured having twelve children and a hard man for a husband. Thanks for the history.
* Thank you barbidoll, such feedback makes all the research worthwhile

Troopship 'AYRSHIRE' into Lyttelton 1919

RETURNING HOME ~ AYRSHIRE'S DRAFT
Expected at Lyttelton 19 Sep 1919
The Ayrshire left Liverpool with 30 officers & 639 men on the passenger list, (but.. Alfred Curtis died before embarking & George McNicholl drowned at Panama. See both below)

Dominion, 20 Sep 1919 Ayrshire at Lyttelton. The Ayrshire from Home, with troops, arrived in the stream at Lyttelton at 10.20 to-night. The troops will disembark in the morning. She has on board a large English mail. There are 831 receptacles, 523 being bags of ordinary mails and 308 bags of parcels. It is probable that a special counter delivery will be made at the G.P.O. between 7.30pm and 8.30pm of all correspondence usually delivered by letter-carriers. There are 452 details for the North island and 219 for the South Island. This will mean a delay of from one to two days in the return of the North island troops to their homes, a delay which could easily have been obviated by making Wellington the vessel's first port of call.

* The Auckland portion of 184 men, reached home by the steamer Monowai 6 days later, on 26 Sep 1919 and were welcomed on the wharf by a large crowd
* In Nov 1919 several members of the crew were charged with embezzling the ship stores

The bride was attended by Miss Washer, of Te Puke, in a pale blue dress with hat to match, and by Miss Katie Cook, who wore a pretty cream silk costume, trimmed with lace, and hat to match. The bridegroom was supported by his brother, Mr John F. Lemon, of this town. The bride wore a handsome costume of cream lustre, trimmed with cream satin, with veil, and wreath of orange blossoms, the whole effect being most recherche and artistic and reflecting great credit on the taste and skill of her sister, Miss Margaret Cook, whose creation it was. After the ceremony the happy pair, amid an extra heavy shower of rice and similar tokens of good will, embarked on a coach drawn by four spanking greys with wedding favours in their headstalls, from Mr M. P. Stewart's stables, the ribbons being held by Mr G. Leggett, who drove them to the residence of the bride's father, where a large gathering of relatives and friends took place to partake of the wedding breakfast. Later in the day the bride and bridegroom took their departure for their new home at Te Puke, amid many expressions of good wishes for their future happiness and prosperity

Andrew Lemon
married Ellen Parr in 1855
note Possible? that the following article was this Andrew Lemon .. On the 22nd January 1866, as Mr Hebberly and Mr Beauchamp, surveyor, were surveying the coast in the Straits, on the north shore of the Middle Island, between George's Rocks and Lucky Point, they found the wreck of the missing schooner 'Sarah'. The whole of the vessel was there, but smashed to pieces. The clothes of the two unfortunate men, Andrew Lemon and Curly George, were strewed about the rocks, but all torn to pieces. A necktie was sent to Mrs Lemon, to be identified; but it was known by Mr Hebberly to be the one he usually wore. Mr Hebberly picked up a leaden pump and some bits, made of blue gum, and conveyed them to his place in Queen Charlotte's Sound, where they can be seen. Nothing was seen of the remains of the poor fellows, who had met with a watery grave.
