NOTES - DEATH OF AN OLD SETTLER
20 June 1895 ... On Tuesday last there passed away another of the oldest of the Nelson settlers, and a lady whose goodness of heart will long be remembered by all who had the privilege of her acquaintance. The late Mrs Waters was a native of Bath, but she came to this Colony in the ship Sir Charles Forbes in the year 1842, together with her first huband Mr William Stallard. Shortly after their arrival they went to reside at Wakapuaka, and while living there Mr Stallard invented a machine for dressing flax, in which industry he engaged. At that time troubles with the natives in that district were not infrequent and after residing there some time, Mr and Mrs Stallard removed to town, where Mr Stallard, who was a plumber and glazier by trade, started business in those lines. While thus following his calling he made the lead light windows for he original Church on the hills and which now find a position in the Cathderal. It was about the year 1845, we believe, that Mr Stallard died, and a few years later his widow married the late Mr W. R. Waters (Harriet married William Ridd Waters (1830-1881) in 1857), who succeeded the late Mr Joseph Levien as Mayor of this city and who for many years occupied a seat in the Council. He was too, a prominent member of the Ancient Order of Foresters and there are any who can yet testify to the general interest which he took in the welfare of Friendly Socities. The deceased might have been better known had she been more self-assertive, but she was of a retiring disposition. Her acts of kindness and generosity were numerous, but she permitted not her left hand to know what was done by the right. Mrs Waters experienced her full share of the troubles and anxieies of the early settlers and was able to relate many an interesting and an exciting anecdote of the early days. She has left sorrowing, three sons and one daughter, all of them married, as well as twenty-five grand children and six great grandchildren
the 4 children were:
1840 - 1885 William Arthur Stallard, born in London
- William married Amelia DEMENT

*OBITUARY of Francis Stallard
... On Saturday afternoon there passed away at Nelson a very old and highly esteemed resident of Collingwood in the person of Mr Francis Stallard, who first went to reside in the Golden Bay township some fifty-one years ago. Mr Stallard was born in Nelson seventy-one years ago, his father having been one of the 1842 settlers. At the early age of sixteen years he went to the Waikato as a volunteer, and took part in the fighting there, and was one of those entitled to wear the New Zealand War medal. He learned the trade of a baker, but after his apprenticeship was concluded he had a turn at goldmining, both in Collingwood and on the West Coast, and met with some success. Subsequently he opened a storekeeper's business at Collingwood, and then added a bakery. He became identified with the business and social life of Collingwood, and was one of the best known and most respected of its residents. He was for a long period of years harbourmaster of Collingwood Park. Mr Stallard was a prominent member of Court Aorere, of the Foresters' Order, on a number of occasions representing that Court at the Nelson District meetings. He was also a member of the Southern Star Lodge of Freemasons, and at the time of his death was one of the oldest of the active members. Mr Stallard married Miss James, a member of a well-known Collingwood family, and his widow survives him, as do his two sons, Captain F. J. Stallard, on active service in France, and Private E. G. Stallard, now in Featherston Military Camp. The interment will take place at Collingwood

NOTES
A half brother, Right Honourable Sir Robert Stout, KCMG, MP. was the 13th Premier of New Zealand on two occasions in the late 19th century and later Chief Justice of New Zealand. He was the only person to hold both these offices.
He was noted for his support of liberal causes such as women's suffrage and for his strong belief that philosophy and theory should always triumph over political expediency ... from that link: Stout was born 28 September 1844 in the town of Lerwick, in Scotland's Shetland Islands. He retained a strong attachment to the Shetland Islands throughout his life. He was given a good education, and eventually qualified as a teacher. He also qualified as a surveyor in 1860. He became highly interested in politics through his extended family, which often met to discuss and debate political issues of the day. Stout was exposed to many different political philosophies during his youth. In 1863, Stout emigrated to Dunedin, New Zealand. Once there, Stout quickly became involved in political debate, which he greatly enjoyed.

Mr Beaumont then appeared to be in good health and spirits. Last week, however, he over-exerted himself in the garden, and suffered a collapse from which he never recovered, gradually sinking, until death tool place peacefully this morning. Mr Beaumont married Miss Jagger, and is survived by his widow and an adult family.
