the WWI names on the ROLL OF HONOUR at DOYLESTON memorial library, Canterbury

DOYLESTON is a small Canterbury township in the South Island of New Zealand. It was named after Joseph Hastings Doyle, a publican from Christchurch who moved to the locality
- Joseph Hastings Doyle was born in Scotland and arrived in Canterbury about 1863

Doyleston as it was, a small township twenty-six miles south-west from Christchurch, on the Christchurch-Southbridge railway, and about one mile from the town of Leeston

Doyleston's name was once changed to Cheddar in recognition of the importance of the dairy industry to the area, however the friends of the township's namesake, Mr Doyle, argued against the change and it reverted to its original name.

the list of names was taken from the site Doyleston memorial library

I have put the names into alphabetical order for easier researching

.. The memorial comprises a small brick library with two large white marble tablets in the entrance porch recording the names of 42 service persons who went to WWI. Of these 6 are recorded as casualties.
Of 32 servicemen who went to WWII from the district, one was killed.

the WYCHERLEY family in New Zealand

this journal was written for ejc111 and the query Looking for information regarding Mary Agnes Funnell ... Mary Agnes married Charles Joseph Wycherley in 1892 & they had 1 daughter, Dorothea Mae. I would like to learn more about my great grandparents, especially Mary Agnes who I know died 11 September 1916 at 48 years of age. Charles also died young, 7th January 1907, only 37 years old. I would like to learn what happened to Mary Agnes & Dorothea after his death & more about her family. I know there was a connection with Suckling (another unusual name) but know very little about my mother's early life. She died in 1992, before I was old enough to become interested in my ancestry

ejc has said that Charles Whittingham Wycherley wrote a diary about his voyage to Auckland on the JESSIE READMAN in 1885. This will be added as soon as it is available

Look out for today's BARGAINS - A. J. WYCHERLEY, (late of U.F.C.A.)

In 1921 they were living at 97 Upland Rd, Kelburn

7 June 1923
"I can make no offer; I have only got what I stand up in",: declared Arthur Jefferson Wycherley, key specialist, at a meeting of his creditors held yesterday afternoon. Bankrupt attributed much of his misfortune to loss of time and expenses incurred in trips to London and New York in connection with patents. The meeting was presided over by the Official Assignee (Mr S. Tansley), and there were twelve creditos present or represented. Mr M. F. Luckie appeared for bankrupt.

The debts to unsecured creditors were shown as totalling 1020. The stock-in-trade was estimated at 284 4s 6d, leaving a deficiency of 507 7s

The principal unsecured creditors were:- H.W. Beauchamp 40; Ballinger and Co., 15; Wellington Publishing Co., Ltd., 50; J. Sangster, 90; W.H. Edwards and Son, 93; C. Wycherley, 130; Patterson and Barr Ltd., 136; R.W. Cameron and Co., 40; Hanna and King, 20; J. Mattox and Son, 58 11s 5d; "New Zealand Times," Ltd, 30

Bankrupt, in his filed statment, said that he commenced business in 1918 with a capital of approximately 60. After a year's work the result was entirely satisfactory. Early in the second year he found it necessary to employ labour, and the net result of the second year's work, though not as satisfactory as the first, showed a substantial margin. It was found that more capital was required to carry the business on, and a loan at a low rate of interest was arranged with his brother-in-law.
He pledged as security a portion of his interest in his deceased father's estate. A little later more capital was required owing to the growth of the business, and a further loan was negotiated, the security being of the same character.
Late in 1919 he suffered a nervous breakdown, and was compelled to spend some time in the North and pay a heavy price for labour to carry on the business during his absence.
Towards the middle of 1920 he became assoiated with a private limited company bearing his name, to which for 500 he sold patent rights in connection with locks. This money was merged into the business as soon as it was received.
Late in 1920 he undertook to go to England on behalf of the company, the latter paying all expenses and 5 per week to his wife during his absence. A manager at a salary of 5 per week was engaged to conduct the business while he was away, and his salary was regularly paid till bankrupt returned to New Zealand in April, 1921. The manager's services were dispensed with, and bankrupt assumed control. It was discovered that the business had suffered very considerably as a result of his absence.
Things took a better turn later in 1921, when he was again asked to go abroad on behalf of A. J. Wycherley, Ltd. He left for New York in October. Some time between 15th October and 17th October the premises were entered and a quantity of goods stolen. He left for New York on 17th October, A. J. Wycherley, Ltd., paying all expenses, as well as 10 oer week to his wife, so that the business would not be drawn on for household expenses.
Shortly after he left New Zealand the man he had left to carry on his business left his employ, and started business on his own account. When this information reached bankrupt in New York, in November, he immediately cabled instructions that, failing certain arrangements being made, the business must be closed.

His wife here took charge of affairs, and in order to protect both his creditors and himself kept the business going. The 10 per week which his wife was entitled to was merged into the business from January to June, 1922. Matters in connection with his trip overseas did not turn out as anticpated by the company or himslef, and to-day his share holding in the company was valueless.
Late in July he found that his business was in a very unhealthy condition financially, and he arranged for a further loan from his brother-in-law, giving as security practically the whole of his interest in his father's estate.
An overdraft was guaranteed at the Bank of New South Wales, and the account was operated upon solely by his wife, who at that time was taking an active hand in the business. Much of his time was taken up during this period with matters relative to the patents.
Late in November, Mrs Wycherley became tired of the incessant strain, and went into business elsewhere. Early in January bankrupt suffered a breakdown and went into hospital. After leaving hospital, bankrupt had two private meetings with his creditos. On 14th February a resolution was passed, which, in effect, allowed him to carry on his business for 18 months. Some weeks later Mr Edwards took proceedings against him, and on the advice of his other creditors he filed his petition in bankruptcy.
Mr W.H. Edwards said that he would have been perfecty agreeable to wait 18 months for his money on condition that Wycherley had nothing to do with the finances of the business. On the other hand, Wycherley had come back and had taken charge himself, and had not allowed the supervisors to manage the business.
It was decided to sell the business as a going concern
Bankrupt informed the Assigness that he could make no offer to his creditors, and had only what he stood up in
On the motion of Mr. W. H. Edwards, it was decided to allow bankrupt 7 per week from the date of the filing of the petition until the business was disposed of.
