New Zealand CENTENARIAN deaths 1870-1943

A centenarian is a person who lives to or beyond the age of 100 years.
Because current average global life expectancies are less than 100, the term is invariably associated with longevity.

A supercentenarian is a person who has lived to the age of 110 or more, something only achieved by about one in 1,000 centenarians.

Even rarer is a person who has lived to age 115; as of June 2012, there are only 27 people in recorded history who have indisputably reached this age.

In 2009, the United Nations estimated 455,000 living centenarians worldwide.

Otago Witness, 22 June 1893 THE FIRST WEDDING THE WAIAU
The Waiau is a vast district in the north-west of Southland. It has hitherto been tenanted chiefly by sheep and rabbits. Now it is becoming more settled, and will soon make its natural advantages tell on the welfare of New Zealand. The first marriage in the district, which took place on June 1, must therefore not pass unnoticed. On that day Miss Annie Scobie, daughter of Mr Scobie, of Eastern Bush, was joined in wedlock with Mr Malcolm Mouat, of Woodlands station, by the Rev A. Macdonald, of Otautau/ Invitations had been issued to 60 guests. The death of a neighbour, however, prevented that number attending. About 40 sat down to dinner, and more dropped in during the evening. Merry speeches were made by the Rev A. Macdonald, and Messrs Gilman, Bradley and Darley. Several of the guests have the unique distinction of having note localities named after them. After one of them the Cameron Range was named. the bridegroom's name is borne by a lake at the head of the Big river, while other enterprising men present were equally deserving of having their names similarly immortalised. Nearly all were pioneers, either as explorers. shepherds, or farmers. In this district ladies are rather scarce as yet, but there were importations from Invercargill and Otautau. In the evening the large granary was cleared for a dance. This, with songs and games, made the night pass pleasantly. At present there are, I believe, only three married couples west of the Waiau, where Mr and Mrs Mouat reside. I exclude the Wilson river goldfields. This district includes nearly half of the Wallace County and the whole of the Fiord County. But population is now running in like a flood, and the country which has been all desolate shall yet be made glad by them. By "them" I mean the wives. I am an advocate of settlement, and how can a man be properly settled unless he acts as Mr Mouat has done?

OBITUARY of GEORGE SCOBBIE

The death has occurred at Otahuhu of Mr George Scobbie, aged 83 years. Born in Scotland, Mr Scobbie arrived in New Zealand 52 years ago on the sailing ship Oamaru after a long and stormy voyage. On two occasions the vessel was so much at the mercy of the elements that a wreck was feared. After a short period in Dunedin Mr Scobbie proceeded with his wife and family to the West Coast and for 16 years he was a mining engineer at Denniston. He then returned to the Waihi district and followed his vocation on the goldfields there for 18 years. Mr Scobbie took up residence in Otahuhu 15 years ago, when he retired. An active and vigorous man all his life, Mr Scobbie never suffered an illness until a few weeks ago. He is survived by his wife, seven daughters and three sons. The daughters are Mrs Gillander of Waihi; Mrs Q. McClung and Mrs Hume of Katikati; Mrs Dunstan of Te Hoe; Mrs Matson of Otorohanga; Mrs Roycroft of Whangarei; amd Mrs S. McClung of Waihi. The sons are Mr Walter Scobbie of Otahuhu; Mr George Scobbie of Onehunga; and Mr John Scobbie of Mount Eded. There are 48 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren

WEDDING BELLS - HARDY-McLAREN
On Wednesday, September 18th, a very pretty and interesting wedding took place at Mr D. McLaren's, "Parkside" Eastern Bush, one of the largest of the kind that has eventuated in this district, many friends from far and near being present. The bride was Miss Annie Gilmour McLaren, daughter of Mr D. McLaren, and the bridgroom Mr Randolph Richard Piggot hardy, son of the late Mr Hardy, of Waimata. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in her bridal robes of cream satin striped silk, with cream roucheings and long bridal veil to match, and orange blossoms. She carried a beautiful shower bouquet of white narcissus. The bridesmaid was Miss Margaret McLaren, sister of the bride, who also wore cream satin striped delaine, and carried a bouquet of egg lilies. The little page was Miss Constance Scobie, cousin of the bride, who was dressed in white and blue, sash and ribbons to match. Mr G. Hardy, of Balclutha, brother of the bridegroom was best man. The bridegroom's present to the bride was a beautiful silver fruit bowl and spoons to match, and the bride's present to the bridegroom a greenstone albert, mounted in gold, and gold pendant. The bridegroom's present to the bridesmaid was a lovely gold brooch set in rubies and pearls, and the bride's present to the best man a pair of gold sleeve links. The father's present to the bride was a handsome gold bangle with a lovely sapphire stone set in, and a handsome cheque. Rev A. MacDonald (Otautau) performed the ceremony, and Miss Hardy played the Wedding March on the piano. After the nuptial knot had been tied, the guests adjourned to the barn, amidst showers of rice and confetti, where the wedding breakfast was served, over one hundred guests sitting down to it. Five long tables were beautifully laid out, and ample justice was done to the good thins provided. The Rev. A. MacDonald occupied the chair, and performed his duties in his usual humorous style. The usual toasts were proposed and duly honoured. The presents were displayed in the sitting-room, and comprised articles handsome, useful and costly, including cheques and notes for a large sum. The young couple and wedding froup were photograped by Mrs J. Beggs. Games were indugled in during the afternoon, and one and all adjourned to the barn, where a sumptuous tea was partaken of, after which the barn was cleared for dancing, about forty couples taking part in the grand march, which was led off by the bride's parents, music being supplied by Messrs Scobie and Livingstone (violins), and W. S. Scobie (piano), while Mr A. Glendinning performed the duties of M.C. in excellent manner. During intervals, Miss Hardy (sister of the bridegroom) played and sang some very pretty pieces. Duets were rendered by Mr D. McLaren, junr., and Miss McLaren, Mrs John Moir and Miss Mouat, and Misses M. Mouat and SImpson, a song by Mr W. McGill and a Highland fling by Mr W. McLaren (uncle of the bride). Dancing was kept merrily going till daylight, when the happy couple left by motor car, en route for Hastings, amidst showers of rice, confetti and old boots and the guests went home well pleased with their day and night's amusement.

OBITUARY of Ann Scobie

There passed away in Invercargill on June 16th, at the ripe age of 76, one of the pioneers of Otago and Southland, in the person of Mrs Wm. Scobie. Her father, Mr Gilmour, occupied the farm of Fulbarr, 1 mile from Paisley, Scotland, where she was born. She was married on June 5th, 1862, in Paisley to Mr Wm. Scobie, and sailed soon afterwards for Dunedin. The young couple lived for some time in Dunedin, and then went to live at Merry Creek, Popotunoa, near Clinton, where Mr Scobie was agricultural manager. They were amongst the first settlers to take up land in Wairuna. They sold out their holding there, and came to Eastern Bush, Waiau district, Southland, where they resided for 28 years. Mr and Mrs Scobie were well-known in the Waiau district, being settled on a large farm, as well as in business as accommodation house keepers and storekeepers. They also kept post-office and telephone. About seven years ago they retired to Invercargill. It is worthy of note that from June 5th, 1862, their marriage day, to June 5th, 1912, make 50 years, so that Mr and Mrs Scobie saw their golden wedding, but were unable to celebrate it on account of the illness of Mrs Scobie, which terminated her life 11 days afterwards.
In the early days in the Waiau district, Mrs Scobie was called on to do a great deal of nursing, all of which she did gratuitously. Before there was a doctor in Otautau, she was looked on as the doctor in the Waiau. Her house was one that was known for its hospitality far and wide. Her house was like "The Auld Hoose" in the song, the rooms were not large, but they were fairly numerous, and it was wonderful how many wayfarers she could stow away in comfort for the night. She had a large sympathetic heart. Hers was not a self-centred existence, but an unselfish one, for she interested herslf in others and delighted to help them. She had great tenacity of purpose and punctuality, If a thing had to be done, there was no hesitation, and it had to be done at the time arranged. There was also a deep reverence for things sacred. She did not tell her children to go to church; she went herself, and they followed. They were set a good example.
One was not astonished at her wonderful end. After the aged couple had read a chapter in the Bible, verse about, before going to bed, she said to her husband: "This will be the last night you and I will be together." Mr Scobie said: "How do you think that?" She said: "I just know it. I am going home." She never spoke after that. She took a sudden seizure which deprived her of speech. Mrs Scobie was laid to rest in the Eastern cemetery, Invercargill, and Re. A. MacDonald, M.A., Otautau, officiated in the house and at the grave.
Mrs Scobie has left behind her husband and four of a family, all settlers in the Waiau, namely, Mrs Donald McLaren, Mrs Mamcolm Mouat, Mr Wm. Scobie jnr., and Mr John Scobie, to whom the sympathy of a wide circle of friends is extended.

OBITUARY of William Scobie

The death of Mr William Scobie senior, of Eastern Bush, Southland, at the age of 81 years, is announced. Mr Scobie was born in Scotland, and was married on June 5th, 1862, in Paisley, to Miss Gilmour, and sailed soon afterwards for Dunedin. After living for a short time in Dunedin, Mr and Mrs Scobie went to live at Merry Creek, Popotunoa, near Clinton, where Mr Scobie was agricultural manager. They were amongst the first settlers to take up land at Wairuna. They sold out their holding there, and went to Eastern Bush, Waiau district, Southland, where they resided for 28 years. Mr and Mrs Scobie were well known in the Waiau district, being settled on a large farm as well as in business as accommodation house and storekeepers. Mr Scobie was as keen a farmer as he was a business man. Whilst he did mixed farming he specialised in sheep. Mr Scobie also took a keen interest in public affairs. About 12 years ago he went to Invercargill to live. Mrs Scobie predeceased him six years ago. Mr Scobie has left behind him four of a family, all settlers in the Waiau - namely, Mrs Donald McLaren, Mrs Malcolm Mouat, Mr William Scobie, jun., and Mr John Scobie

the OBITUARY of Edward Phillip KIMMINS was taken from the site:
Ancestors of Trisha
One of the best known residents of Toowoomba, as ex-alderman of the City Council, and a Deputy Mayor, in the person of Mr Edward Phillip Kimmins, passed away at his residence early yesterday afternoon, after a fairly extended illness, at the age of 60 years. For some time past it had been obvious to his intimate friends that the late Mr Kimmins had not enjoyed the best of health, but he was one of those who would not give in until he was compelled to do so. It was as and alderman of the City Council that the deceased was best known, and during the time he was in the Council he endeavoured to do his best for those whom he represented. His experience as a plumber enabled him to accept the position of Chairman of the Waterworks Committee in the Council, to which he did full justice.
Prior to his retirement from the Council, and during the dry spell of last year, teh late Mr Kimmins was untiring in his efforts to ensure for the ratepayers and residents of the city an adequate and constant supply of water for domestic and other purposes.
Apart from his knowledge of water, deceased was a man who kept himself well versed with problems of the day. He was a keen debater on almost any topic, and the views he expressed on any subject, which he brought forward in the Council commanded the general attention ot the aldermen.

The late Mr Kimmins was born in Brisbane, and came to Toowoomba at a fairly early age. At the outset of his career, he envinced an interest in plumbing, and, joining the staff of Mr E Smart, who at one time occupied a seat in the State Parliment, he worked his way up until finally he held the position of foreman.
The late Mr Kimmins had been associated with Mr Smart for 23 years, and finally he decided to launch out in busines on his own account. This he did in premises nearly opposite the Post Office in 1909, and during the intervening years up to the present time he had worked up a connection which affords constant employment to a good number of employees. In pre-war days he had as many as 16 hands on his payroll. During the greater part of the time that he had been in business, the late Mr Kimmins had received the invaluable assistance and support of his eldest son, Mr Victor Kimmins, who really of late years has been acting in the capacity of manager.

Deceased, who married Miss S. A. Moore of Poplar, London, was a prominent Freemason, and at the time of his demise held the rank of Past Master in the English Lodge, after having gone through all the chairs.

The late Mr Kimmins was also a keen supporter of the Friendly Society movement, being connected with the Protestant Alliance Lodge of Queensland, of which on one occasion he was Grand Master. At the recent conference of the Society held in Toowoomba special reference was made to the prominent part deceased had taken in its welfare.

The late Mr Kimmins also took a keen interest in fire brigade matters, and long before the days of the present engines he held the position of deputy superintendant for upwards of 20 years. He took part in fighting some of the biggest conflagrations in those days, and his advice and assistance always proved invaluable.

Of later years he held a seat on the Fire Brigade Board, as one of the Council`s representatives, and anything he considered necessary in the interest of the firemen was advocated by him. For some time past he had held a position on the Tarampa Shire Council, where his knowledge of local aurthority affairs generally proved most useful.

Recently on his behalf his son, Fireman F Kimmins, received a meritorious service medal indicative of more than 20 years` association with the fire brigade.

The deceased, who until recently was a member of the Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce, has left a widow, and a grown up family. The sons are: Messrs Victor, Frank, Edward, Eric, William, and Leslie, and the girls, Mrs S STINSON, of Morven, and Miss Myrtle Kimmins, of Toowoomba.

Immediately upon the receipt of the news of his demise the flag at the Town Hall was flown at half-mast.

The Assistant Home Secretary, Mr F. T. Brennan, last night remarked that he was very sorry to hear of the death of Mr Kimmins, who had always shown that he had the welfare of Toowoomba at heart, and in numerous ways had rendered valuable assistance in securing the advancement of the city.

The funeral will leave his late residence, Victor Street, this afternoon, at 3 o`clock, for the Toowoomba cemetery.
