Deceased had been seriously ill for several months past, though hopes of her recovery were entertained till a few days ago. Miss Robieson, through her enthusiastic support of all projects having for their object the social and general welfare of the community, earned for herself widespread affection and respect. She was a most indefatigable worker in all patriotic matters, and all through the influenza epidemic this time last year, Miss Robieson worked day and night to relieve the suffering of many victims, and gallantly stayed at her post until the epidemic ceased.

Miss Robieson was also a member of the Tennis Club, and on all occasions did her best to further the interests of the local club.

Hokitika and Kumara are about 50km apart so I feel it is very possible. Delwyn forgot to add names or dates to help in the search, so have written this journal to help her. Would be grateful if anyone knows anything to please write in comments

Masterton's first Church of England was built on the corner of Queen & Church Streets. The first wooden church was replaced by a brick one built on the northern side of Church Street - between Dixon & Archer Sts - and consecrated on 22 Sep 1913. This church was damaged in the 1942 earthquake and demolished. The third church was opened on the site of the second church in 1958. In the early 1990s St Matthew's Church was divided over theological matters, resulting in the resignation of the vicar, Barrie Allom

Masterton's first Church of England was built on the corner of Queen & Church Streets. The first wooden church was replaced by a brick one built on the northern side of Church Street - between Dixon & Archer Sts - and consecrated on 22 Sep 1913. This church was damaged in the 1942 earthquake and demolished. The third church was opened on the site of the second church in 1958. In the early 1990s St Matthew's Church was divided over theological matters, resulting in the resignation of the vicar, Barrie Allom

Arthur William Burrell & Mary Myrtle Holley, Westport NZ

Written for TamaraLee who messaged on 25 Oct 2017...
Hello Ngaire, I was wondering if you would be able to please help me with something.
I have being trying to find a photo of my nana, Mavis Eveline (nee Burrell) for over 25 years now. Our family has no photo of her as a young person before she married granddad Gordon McDonald McRae. Nana and Granddad eloped (I think) and I don't even know if there is a wedding photo of them. We would all love to see what Nana looked liked before her marriage. Apparently she was Miss Westport at some stage - I'm thinking between 1937 and 1940. Can you please help me I would be ever so grateful and appreciative
* If anyone recognises the people in this journal could you please leave a comment which may help Tamara

However, there is indication that as his father's name was not on the birth registration, that he was base born, as Joseph James Hulford, to Susanna Mary Hulford who later married Samuel Birchley. Joseph had a sister, Annie Elizabeth Hulford and siblings William Birchley Hulford, John Hulford Birchley, Charles Birchley (or Hulford) & Frances Martha Birchley. This needs following up.

Evening Post, 15 Feb 1872 - MARRIAGE On the 15th inst., by the Rev Mr Moir, Joseph James Birchly(sic) to Ellen(sic) Shearer, both of Wellington
* Helen was born in Kekerengu, Kaikora Coast, 1 of 12 children of William Shearer (1812-1887), a Mariner, Whaler, Farmer from Scotland, & Mere (Mary) Pikirewa Hine Korako Te Rehu from Taranaki. Hereni Shearer had a moko kauae (female chin tattoo) which indicated her status as a puhi (high-born, unwed woman), wahine rangatira (women of rank), kahurangi (chieftainess) or ariki tapairu (first-born in a family of note), depending on the woman
Helen's mother on birth & marriage certs Mary is listed as Mary Shearer formerly Weki, formerly Miki, formerly Te Tuhi, formerly Hine Korako Te Rehu or formerly Pikirewa Te Hikoi
Helen's father William Shearer drowned at Foxton aged 75. His obit reads ... Mr William Shearer, who was drowned at Foxton recently, was one of the oldest whalers on the coast. Visiting New Zealand in an English whaler the 'Puzey Hall' owned by Mellish & Co., London, in 1830, he then left for Sydney, returning to Lyttelton in 1835 in the bargue 'Australia' commanded by the late Captain W. B. Rhodes, as third mate. He was one of the four who came up from Lyttelton to Queen Charlotte Sound in an open boat. He came over to Wellington and landed in Titahi Bay, Porirua harbour. He was afterwards connected with the Wellington cargo boats as foreman for Mr J. F. Wills. He left Wellington about 20 years ago and has lived at the Chathams, Taranaki and latterly at Foxton, where his death took place by drowning. He was 76 years of age. He could tell a good many tales about the old fighting days with the Maori round Kapiti

* About 1875 Joseph moved to Foxton where he was a flax dresser, he also ran a Billiard Saloon there
* In 1877 he took over the Foxton & Lower Gorge Ferries and with George Boyd became the Ferrymen
* In Nov 1878 his company Bowe & Buckley were ... "pushing on with their contract for removing the Hydrabad's cargo. They have about 160 tons ready for shipment at Harley's. Six teams are constantly engaged and four more are to join them this week. This lot should make short work of it"
* In Feb 1879 Mr F. Cooper of Wellington, who bought the wreck of the 'City of Auckland,' sold it to Bowe & Birchley, keeping for himself the steering wheel, binnacle, compasses and one bower anchor and chain
* In 1879 he was a Stock Dealer in Palmerston North, in partnership with Thomas Bowe in the firm Bowe, Birchley & Co., until he bought out Thomas's share of the business and ran it with Pat Mangan
* In March 1890 Mr J. S. Morrison, flax dresser of Newtown, Wellington, sued Joseph for breach of contract in failing to deliver 12 tons of best hemp
* In March 1891 he leased the Okaua hemp mill in Shannon
* In Aug 1895 Joseph bought the house and land in Thynne St, Foxton from Mr J. R. McMillan
* In Oct 1899 Helen sold some land she owned in Foxton to Ade Isabel Cook
* In Jan 1901 Joseph asked the Pahiatua County Council for a concession in the toll charged for sheep passing through the toll gate at Upper Gorge Bridge. It was resolved that a concession be allowed of half rates for mobs of 500 and over
* In Oct & Nov 1902 his brother Charles (from outside NZ) put ads in the local newspapers looking for him
* In 1903 he purchased a farm in Taihape and sold his 13 acre property, with 6-roomed house, stables, barns, cowshed etc in Hokowhitu. This went up for auction but was passed in at £1000. It was later purchased by Mr F. Tyer of Palmerston North
* In 1903 his son 'Sid' was charged in connection with an accident on the River bank in which Miss Elizabeth Baker was seriously injured. It was a long, drawn-out trial and because of constant jury disagreement, a new trial began in Sep 1903. Again the jury disagreed and the Crown finally abandoned the case
* In Dec 1903 Joseph put up for sale his well-known property at Hokowhitu, 15 miles from Pohangina & 10 miles from Apiti, consisting of 13 acres with a comfortable dwelling
* On 13 July 1907 his son Jim, who worked in the railway workshops at Aramoho, contracted an illness and died at their home home, 44 Lombard St., Palmerston North, aged 29
* On 28 Feb 1915 his daughter Hilda (Mrs John Dalrymple Oliphant) died in Wanganui giving birth, she was 29. She had only been married 2 years and left 2 sons (her son later died in Dec 1915 aged 10 months)
* In Dec 1917 his son Corporal Malcolm Sydney 'Sid' Birchley, horsebreaker with the Wellington Mounted Rifles, returned to Palmerston North after fighting on the Peninsula. He was the first to offer his services when war broke out & travelled on the transport with 700 horses. He was wounded at Gallipoli. He also took part in the Boer War

Of interest, Joseph bought the gigantic, historic shipwreck 'Hydrabad'
In 1878 the 224-feet long iron-hulled vessel crashed into the coastline 1km south of the tiny Waitarere Beach community in what the papers of the time described as "a furious hurricane". None of the 35 people on board were killed, but the 1350-tonne vessel could not be refloated. Ravaged by fires and rust, she sat in shallow waters out from Waitarere Beach and became a local icon.
Joseph bought the hulk and all the gear etc in 1881 for £5 (equivalent today of $842) when it came ashore at Otaki. He sold a portable engine, a steam winch, a donkey pump, 4 large iron tanks, 2 large cooking ranges (1 suitable for cooking for 60 people) and about 1 ton of old brass and muntz metal. He offered to sell a boiler and steam winch to the Waitara Harbour Board. The 6ft figure head and several of her seats were at one time at his residence, The Avenue, Foxton.

* He had thoroughbred horses and polo ponies. His son Maurice rode a number of the winners. When he was 11 years old he came off his mount 'Black Watch' at the 3rd hurdle but got straight back on and completed his round
