From the WANGANUI CHRONICLE
- 3rd October 1891

A settler named Thomas Askew, says the Woodville Examiner, who had a section and house in the settlement, died on Sunday night. Mr and Mrs Askew have been living at Ashhurst but deceased came to the settlement to prepare the way for their return.
Mr Goff who lives near, sent a child over for some vegetables and on her knocking at the door she heard groans and opened it, when deceased was found to be dying. He was attended to but died as above,
Deceased had been complaining of being unwell for sometime and a post mortem examination conducted by Dr Davemport revealed the fact that death resulted from cancer. He has four sons occupying responsible positions at Lyttelton

Please leave a comment if you can help with his wife, children and life in Ashhurst and Woodville

After three months at sea, on the 6th January 1841, Mary gave birth to a boy whom she name Nugent. He lived for only 9 days.

Six weeks later, on the 27th February, the ship ran short of water so put into the Port at Hobart, Tasmania - it was anchored for 19 days.

During that time, on the 4th March 1841 her son Henry died, he was 12 years old - not known why he died, but there were cases of Typhus on board..??

Just 3 days before the ship again set sail on its final leg to New Zealand, Mary died.

Thomas was to live for another 40 years
As his trade was rope making, Thomas set up a rope walk at Te Aro.
In 1844 some of the immigrants took doubtful possession of land in the upper Hutt Valley.
The Maori owners resented this, so, led by Rangihaeata, resisted and the Hutt Valley War began.
This created a shortage of flax so Thomas went to Waikawa and set up his rope walk there, leaving the children in Wellington, apparently in the care of his capable daughter Margaret ... read more at his link above
