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.

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 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

* 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.

She was attended by the Misses Ada Dicker and Alice Dart, young sisters of the bride and bridegroom, as bridesmaids, the two latter wearing white hail spot muslin over pink zephyr, with short voile trimmed with flowers.

'Quite a gloom was cast over the township this morning when it became known that an accident, which terminated fatally, had befallen George Dicker. Deceased was engageed with his brother William scrubbing at Camp Creek. William was felling a myrtle tree, George was working about 20 to 30 yards away, and was warned of the falling tree and jumped behind another close by. It is supposed that he looked out to see where the tree was falling to and was struck on the head by it. Deceased never spoke and died an hour afterwards. Deceased who was only married about last Christmas, leaves a young wife, for whom heartfelt sympathy is expressed.' At the inquest the jury returned a verdict that deceased came to his death accidentally. The deceased was a son of Mr James Dicker, an old resident of Modbury, but now of Wynyard, and about 10 months ago he married Miss M. Dart, of Millbrook.
* 11 Nov 1898 - The sad accidental death of Mr. George J. Dicker cast quite a gloom over the whole district, as he was a very worthy young fellow, who had won the goodwill of everyone.

Advocate, 31 August 1927 DEVONPORT BLAZE
PRACTICALLY ALL STOCK AFFECTED. The damage to the stock as a result of the fire at Messrs. Roe and Paul's yesterday morning proved a great deal more extensive than was at first thought. Mr. W. Whitfield, the insurance assessor, stated that he had not gone thoroughly into the damage, but he estimated it at roughly £4500. The stock was covered by £5400 with the Liverpool London and Globe Insurance Company. The fire, it is thought, originated as the result of a wooden plug in the brick wall igniting through being in close proximity to a fireplace in the premises of A. J. Dicker, bootmaker, next door. On examination, there were several plugs in the wall where tho fire started one of which was burned out. After burning through, the plug caught on to the rolls of material and shelving that was against the wall at this particular spot, when, after smouldering for sometime the cloth and other fabrics evidently burst into flames. The steel ceiling of the shop was severely scorched where the flames played round in a circle in an endeavor to find an outlet. At the opposite end the partitions at the back of the windows were scorched, and lines of cashmere hose and other inflammable articles hung on top of tho counters were burned to cinders, showing how the flames leaped round. Articles in practically all parts of the shop were destroyed and others damaged by water. The section where the conflagration started was where the most expensive goods were and very little was left untouched in the whole row of shelves on this side. After burning for a while a large skylight above the heart of the fire was broken open by the heat and this caused a current of air to enter which fanned the blaze making it increase in volume, and giving it a fair hold. It was at this stage that the fire brigade arrived. The draught caused by the opening of the door for the admittance of men with the hose further increased the blaze, but it was soon under control, and within an hour they were able to leave the premises. Had it been other than a calm night or had the alarm been given half an hour later there would have been little hope of saving the building, in fact, the shops adjoining would have been endangered. The firemen arrived on the scene promptly on receiving the alarm. Articles in the windows of the shop at tho top, where the flames reached, were damaged, while three plate glass windows facing Stewart street were cracked. On the floor above, the rooms occupied by Mr B. C. Wall, dentist, were not affected. It is a remarkable coincidence that this shop was the scene of a fire in January. The outbreak on that occasion occurred on the upper storey, in Mr. Wall's dentistry chambers, but considerable damage was done to the goods in the shop by water.
The Mercury, 25 July 1954
At the Court of Requests
Alfred J. Dicker, of Devonport, sued Aaron E. J. Cowburn, of Eugenana, for the recovery of 10/9 for a pair of slippers which it was stated were sold to the defendant. The plaintiff's case was that the slippers and shoes were purchased, and the latter were paid for by a daughter of the defendant, but the slippers were omitted from the bill by mistake, but an account was rendered later.

Sergeant-Major William Rufus Churchouse, Opotiki 1865

William Rufus Churchouse (1842-1916) was born in Godney, Somerset, England. He enrolled, in Geelong, Victoria, Australia, on 20 Jan 1864 (registration number 41) for the Armed Constabulary. He stated he was 5' 8", an accountant aged 22 and single.
He arrived in New Zealand on the 'Gresham' in 1864 (with 422 other soldier of the Melbourne Contingent Taranaki Military Settlers). He served with the Taranaki Military Settlers Commissariat Transport Corps and was also at Pipiriki, Opotiki

Taranaki Herald, 7 Jan 1865
CHRISTMAS AT KAITAKE

The Age (Melbourne), 11 Nov 1865 OPOTIKI, New Zealand
We have received from Mr W. E.(sic, William Rufus) Churchouse, Sergeant-Major of the East Coast Expeditionary Force, Opotiki, NZ, the following letter, dated 8th October, relative to the war:- Sir, — Since last writing to you, little has occurred here worth mentioning, till the 5th inst., when a smart engagement took place with the rebels at a native village and pa, about four miles from our camp, which ended in the capture of the pa, and the total rout of the rebels, who left thirty-three men dead on the field, the loss on our side being three killed and nine wounded, a list of whom I have attached below.
Early on the morning of the 5th, Major McDonnell, with four officers and fifty rank and file of the native contingent, left the camp on a reconnoitering expedition. After being out about two hours, a quantity of cattle was seen near an old village we had burnt some days previous, on attempting to drive them off, they were fired on by a party of rebels, who had not before been seen.
The contingent gave chase and followed them about half a mile, into a pa that had been built within the last few days, situated near a river with a swamp on one side. Major M'Donnell, seeing this place could be easily surrounded, sent back a man to camp for reinforcements, and threw out his handful of men in skirmishing order in front of the pa, to prevent if possible, the escape of the rebels till further reinforcements arrived.
About an hour after, the remainder of the native contingent, with about twenty of the cavalry under Lieutenant McPherson, arrived, and shortly after, Captain Newlands and Ross's companies of Rangers, when the pa was completely surrounded. The firing was now kept up heavily on both sides; several of our men were wounded, and one killed. About this time, two p.m., a party of the rebels came down from a neighboring pa, about a mile distant, to attempt the rescue of their men in the pa; and attempted to turn our left flank. This was prevented by our small troop of cavalry, under Lieutenant McPherson, who, dismounting half his men, threw them out in skirmishing order, and gradually retiring, drew the rebels some distance out on the plain, to where the remainder of his troop was stationed, when, suddenly mounting their horses, orders wore given to charge.
This was brilliantly executed. The rebels, panic struck, fled leaving nine dead and one prisoner severely wounded in our hands.
No other attempt was made to rescue them by their comrades aud thinking perhaps that discretion is the better part of valor, they retreated to a pa on the spur of some ranges near to watch the issue of the conflict with their less fortunate comrades in the pa we had surrounded.
Troop Sergeant-Major L. O. Kenrick and Farrier-Major, F. De Courcey Duff, of the cavalry troop, received great praise for the gallant manner in which they led the charge. One trooper only received a slight wound in the heel; several of the horses received gun-shot wounds.
About four p.m., Major Stapp arrived from camp with another company and a six pounder gun, and took command. The firing was kept up till dusk, when the rebels commenced a parley, and demanded the terms of surrender. They were told they must lay down their arms, and surrender unconditionally. On their asking for time to consider, an hour was granted.
At the expiration of the hour, one of them came out and had a conversation with the friendly natives and stated they had all agreed to surrender. At this point, some misunderstanding appears to have occurred amongst our men. The Maories in the pa commenced crying cut 'Haere mai, haero mai, pakeha (come here, come here, white man). Some of the men, thinking they had given in, went up to the pa and commenced shaking hands with them. At this moment, they gave a yell, and rushed out of the pa, threw themselves on our men and made for the swamp, This was so quickly done, and a lot of our men being mixed up with them, a little resistance was made for a moment. Luckily, they took a direction right on to where a party of our men were posted, and forced themselves through the midst of them. A sharp struggle ensued, our men bayoneting them as fast as they could use their rifles.
Twenty three bodies were left dead on the field, and numbers more must be lying in the swamp as our men chased them into it, keeping up a heavy fire on them till they were lost in the gloom of the swamp.
The pa was now destroyed, and the men camped on spot that night. Two of the rebels killed were recognised as Hau-hau priests, having red crosses on their breasts; also one named Heremeta Kunpaera, the man who placed the rope round the neck of the Rev. Mr Volkner, and who afterwards assisted in decapitating him.
NOTE about Carl Sylvius Völkner (1819-1865).
On 2 March 1865 Carl Sylvius Völkner, a German-born missionary, was hanged from a willow tree near his church at Ōpōtiki. Followers of a new religion, Pai Marire, who suspected Völkner of spying for the government, were held responsible.

Our casualties for the day were as follow: —
* Private Thos. Melville Brown, P.R., killed
* Private Charles Ratsay, No. 8 Co., killed
* Private Patrick Parsons, No. 8 Co., killed
* Provost-Sergeant Wm. Constable, P.R., wounded right arm, severely
* Sergeant U. Bourke, No. 8 Co., wounded right leg, severely
* Corporal W. Harris, P.R., wounded right arm, severely
* Private W. Thompson, P.R,, wounded right arm, severely
* Private H. J. Williams, No. 10 Co., wounded right side, slightly
* Private Jas. McEvoy, No. 8 Co., wounded head, severely
* Trooper Lennord, W.Y.C., wounded heel, slightly
* Lieutenant Peta, N.C., wounded groin, slightly
* Private Hare, N.C., wounded right thigh, severely

Early next morning a native came down from the pa on the hill with a flag of truce, and stated they were agreeable to give up the murderers of Mr Volkner. He was sent back with a message to the effect that if they were in earnest it must be done at once, or we should immediately start and attack their pa. Shortly after he came down again, and requested us to return to our camp, and they would follow us back. Major Stapp at one gave orders for the troops to advance. Shortly after starting, the commanding officer, Major Brassey, overtook us, and took command. On arriving near the enemy's position, we found three pas, situated one above the other, on a range of mountains running inland.
The troops having been judiciously placed by the commanding officer, and a party sent round to attack them on the left flank, the first pa was stormed. Immediately we charged the Hau-haus retreated at the back from one pa to the other, and escaped to the neighboring hills, without firing a shot. The whole of these positions were thus taken without resistance. All the whares and palisadings were set on fire and destroyed, as also a large village underneath, at the bottom of the range, in which were stored large quantities of grain, potatoes, kumeras, &c. These were also burnt. After destroying everything in the vicinity of the place, we returned to camp in the afternoon.
The behavior of our men, both English and natives, throughout, was excellent, and our colonial Government cannot but be proud to see that her little army (which has up to the present time met with such marked success) is making rapid strides to justify their expectations of soon being able to put an end to this savage warfare. A few more such lessons as they have received during the last three months, and the Maori rebellion will be a thing of the past, soon forgotten in the advancement of a flourishing colony, blessed with a lasting peace.
