NOTE There is a Samuel (1826-1911) and Susan (1826-1906) Barrell buried at Mangatainoka, Pahiatua. Their headstone reads: In memory of one of the original Canterbury pilgrims by arriving in Lyttleton 1855 on the "Grassmere", the first immigrant ship.(?). Unsure why that is written because of course, the first ship was the 'Charlotte Jane' which arrived in Lyttelton in the morning of 16 Dec 1850 and the Randolph arrived in the afternoon. The 'Sir George Seymour' arrived the following day and the 'Cressy' on 27th. The 'Grassmere' arrived 4 May 1855, there were 29 immigrant ships into Lyttelton before her

Passenger List RANGITOTO, Wellington to Southampton 1954

THE NEW ZEALAND SHIPPING COMPANY (LIMITED)
Passenger List 21 Jan 1954 (needs free sign in)
"RANGITOTO" departed Wellington 21 Jan 1954 for Southampton
NOTE I found that the occupation written on the passenger list was not indicative of what they did, but something was required on the passenger list. An example is Monty Pierard who was simply listed as 'clerk' when he was actually a Canon/Churchman with an MBE and his wife as 'Domestic'. Another is Lieutenant Colonel John W Mckewgow who was simply listed as 'Farmer'. All 252 occupations listed as 'domestic' have been removed (after all, this was 1954, not 1854)
* Estimated Birth Year is what is written at above site. However, the sailing was in Jan so probably out by a year. I have changed those I have researched. Death year will be added as found.
* As with all such lists, it is advised you also do your own research. This is just a help on your ancestors movements.
* All listed as British Nationals unless otherwise stated

Maori Pioneer Battalion, Roll of Honour 1915-1920

Major changes were made to the nature and form of Māori military service in late 1915 and early 1916. The Maori Contingent ceased to exist and Māori troops were incorporated into the New Zealand Pioneer Battalion, sometimes referred to as the Maori Pioneer Battalion. They were not front-line fighting units but a military labour force trained and organised to work on engineering duties, digging trenches, building roads & railways and taking on any other logistical tasks deemed necessary. This was essential and dangerous work that was often carried out under fire

*Major George Augustus King, formerly staff captain of the New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade, was appointed as commanding officer. Te Rangi Hīroa was promoted to major and made second-in-command. Both men were considered to have the leadership qualities needed to pull the battalion together. Neither the Otago Mounted Rifles nor the Māori were happy with this reshuffle. The Otago men in particular resented becoming pioneers.
*Hēnāre Kōhere was a 36 year old Lieutenant, a man of great mana, from the East Coast. On 15 Sep 1916, the first day of the NZ attack on the Somme, 12 Pioneers were killed and 40 wounded. One of those mortally wounded was Kōhere, who told those attending him, 'Ka nui te kino' (Things are very bad). He gave instructions that his cousin, Lieutenant *Pekama Kaa, should take control of his Ngāti Porou platoon. He died the next day and was buried at Heilly. Kaa assumed leadership of the platoon until he too was killed in August 1917.

The PIONEER BATTALION returned from war on 6 April 1919
More than 1000 men of the battalion arrived in Auckland on the Westmoreland on the evening of 5 April 1919. As the ship came in to the wharf the next morning, guns fired a salute, steamers sounded their sirens and bands played patriotic music. Dignitaries, including Acting Prime Minister James Allen, greeted the men with brief speeches. The battalion then marched to a pōwhiri (welcome ceremony) at Auckland Domain, where representatives of iwi (tribes) from throughout the country greeted them. After this initial welcome, the various units returned to their home regions.

the shooting of John Henry Lawrence aged 10

THE FLAXBOURNE FATALITY
- CORONER'S INQUEST -
Marlborough Express, 24 April 1906

At the residence of Mr Christopher John Alexander Lawrence, Flaxbourne, yesterday, an inquest was held concerning the death by shooting of John Henry Lawrence, his son, aged 10 years, which occurred on Sunday afternoon. Mr F. M. Foster, J.P., acted as Coroner; and the enquiry was conducted by Constable Southgate.
The following person comprised the jury:- H. W. Elvy (foreman), Wm. Cobeldick junr., John McGregor, John Hoare, Bernard Chapman and A. T. Neugeschwender.
Christopher John Alex. Lawrence, father of the deceased, carpenter, deposed that he last saw his son alive at 2 p.m. on Sunday. At 4 p.m. he was brough back dead by his cousin, Thomas Lawrence. Mrs Lawrence gave evidence as to the latter coming to ask permission for the deceased to go and help him shift some furniture from Hegglun's whare to Chapman's whare.
Thomas Gabriel Lawrence, aged 13 years, cousin of the deceased, was the principal witness.
.. NOTE Thomas was a son of Christopher's brother William Peter Lawrence & Annie Eliza Boxall, see top link ..
He deposed that deceased and he left on Sunday afternoon to go to Chapman's whare. He was going to shift some of his bed things from Hegglun's whare. They each took a load over and were about to go for another load, when deceased found a box of caps and said, "I used to let them off on a nail at Ashburton." Witness told him they were caps for a muzzle-loader. Witness then went for a load, deceased remaining in the whare. When he came back deceased had a gun in his hand and there was a cap on the nipple. Witness, "The gun may be loaded; you had better give me the gun." Deceased gave witness the gun, turned from him and the gun went off in his hands. Deceased fell, rose again and then fell evidently dead. He did not speak. Witness picked him up and carried him to his home. Witness said he did not notice if the gun was cocked,

To the foreman: I do not know if I had my hand upon the trigger.
To a juryman: When the gun went off he (witness) was standing up; deceased was two or three feet from him.

Constable Southgate said he had examined Chapman's whare. He found a double-barrelled muzzle-loading gun upon the floor near the stove. The right barrel had been recently discharged, the hammer being down and a cap on the nipple. The cap looked as if it had recently been put on. The left barrel was still loaded. The gun appeared to have been loaded for some time. An examination of the body showed that there was a wound behind the left shoulder blade. He could find no other marks upon the body. The wound was, in his opinion, quite sufficient to cause death.

The jury gave a verdict that the deceased came to his death by misadventure from a gun-shot wound at the hands of his cousin. A rider was added to the effect that more care should be exercised when leaving loaded guns about dwellings within reach of children.

Frank Wilson ARBON (1864-1928)
Komako, Manawatu
Manawatu Times, 1 Aug 1928
General regret was felt throughout the Manawatu district yesterday, when it became known, that one of the oldest and best known settlers of the Pohangina Valley had passed away, in the person of Mr Frank Wilson Arbon. The late Mr Arbon was a gentleman well known outside his own district, his activities in public life bringing him in contact with many. Particularly his interests lay in Pohangina, for which district he had worked for many years, as one of the best known settler "up the Valley" and also as chairman of the Pohangina County Council.
The deceased gentleman was born in Swanage, England and came to the Dominion 42 years ago, when he commenced farming in the Pohangina Valley. As one of the oldest settlers in that locality, the late Mr Arbon was always to the fore in serving its interests on various local bodies concerned with the district. He was also a life member of the Manawatu and West Coast A. and P. Association, this honour being conferred upon him as some recognition of his services as president of that body in 1911 and in previous and subsequent years, as an energetic committee-man.
The late Mr Arbon had represented the Pohangina district on the Manawatu-Oroua Electric Power Board since the inception of that body and through his death, the district has lost a man who represented it worthily, whenever he was called upon. Deep sympathy will be extended the family in their sad bereavement - a widow and two sons, Messrs Geoffrey and Mervyn Arbon, of Pohangina, are left to mourn their loss

Evening Post, 9 Sep 1943
The death has occurred of Mr Benjamin George Henry Burn, a Wellington resident of long standing who had devoted much of his lifetime to serving the interests of the community. Mr Burn, who was 80 years of age, resided in Karori, where his prominent part in district affairs led to his becoming a Wellington city Councillor when the Karori borough became part of the city. Mr Burn was born in Cornwall, England. He was trained as a weaver for four years at Culbert and then sailed from Liverpool for New Zealand, landing in Wellington in 1879, just after the big fire in Manners Street. After two years in the city, he worked for Messrs T. Campbell, of Karori and A, Fitchett of Brooklyn, at farming and dairying, for several years. Later he served with the firms of Messrs W. G. Turnbull and Co and Messrs W. M. Bannatyne and Co., both Wellington firms, with whom he spent 20 years, thereafter starting on his own account as a dairy farmer at South Karori.
After his retirement from business, Mr Burn took an active part in municipal politics. He was elected a member of the Karori Borough Council in 1909 and remained on the council until 1915, when he was elected Mayor of Karori, in which capacity he took an active part in the negotiations leading to the amalgamation of that borough with the city in 1920. Having then been Mayor for five years, he was elected a member of the Wellington City Council and remained a member until he retired in 1931 for health reasons. He took a keen interest in city reserves and besides being chairman of the reserves committee, was a member of the bylaws, lighting, milk and outlying districts committees. For four years he was on the Hospital Board; he was also a member of the Wellington City and Suburban Highways Board. For three years he was a member of the Karori School Committee, acting as chairman for twelve months.
Keen on promoting sports, Mr Burn was for three years president of the Karori Bowling Club and was also president of the Karori Hockey, Ladies Hockey and Tennis Clubs, patron of the Karori ladies Croquet Club, vice-president of the Hockey Association and vice-president of the Karori Rugby Football Club.

His father Myer had been the chairman of directors and managing director since its incorporation in 1892. In Oct 1928 Mr Arthur Bower Knight (1884-1934), as Chairman of the WFCA, stated that "about twelve months ago, it was made apparent to the board that a crisis had been reached and steps were taken to effect an entire change in the management of the association's affairs". Joseph Caselberg then relinquished his position of chairman and managing director and his brothers, David & Alfred Caselberg, retired from the board ... more here on the meeting and outcome. Arthur concluded with .. "In conclusion the directors realise that the association, like several other organisations in New Zealand carrying on similar business, has passed through a crisis and that its interests have suffered severely thereby. The board is of opinion that the interests of the association will best be served by not delving into past mistakes, but by concentrating on future policy and operations. Drastic action has been taken to meet the position and the board looks forward now with confidence to the future. Loyal support of shareholders and firends will assist in quickly restoring the association to a dividend-paying basis"
