11 Nov 1916 - WELLINGTON
... George Crowther, John Birch, Hector McLean and Charles Hazeldine, who were recently found guilty of attempting to break out of the Terrace gaol, and for violently assaulting the warder, were to-day each sentenced with hard labor. The three first-named were declared habitual criminals

I have also found 2 STENT boys who were sons of a James Stent, but obviosuly not the above James as they enlisted in 1902 - too old to be his children:

ID: 3600
UNIT: North Island Regiment - B Squadron
SHIP: Surrey 1
DATE: 1st February 1902
RANK: Private
OCCUPATION: Farm Labourer
ADRESS: Pemberton, Feilding, Manawatu
NEXT OF KIN: Father - Mr. James Stent

ID: 3601
UNIT: North Island Regiment - B Squadron
SHIP: Surrey 1
DATE: 1st February 1902
RANK: Private
ADDRESS: Pemberton, Feilding, Manawatu
NEXT OF KIN: Father - Mr. James Stent

Can you please help with who these boys were
They were of the same area in Manawtau, New Zealand as the other Stents.
They enlisted on the same day into the same contingent, their ID numbers follow each other etc etc
I am sure they belong somewhere on the same tree as James Stent above

Where is GEORGE AVERY buried ? (1852-1907)

Where is George Avery buried?

? He was born 17 October 1852 in Taita, Lower Hutt
- a son of George AVERY & Charlotte TANDY
? He married Sarah SCRIMSHAW in 1876
? He farmed in Pahiatua for a number of years then moved to Kaponga, in Taranaki, where he owned the Commercial Hotel about 1900 - he was also a butcher there
? He and Sarah had 12 children
? In 1904 he moved to Hikutaia, near Thames
? He died 26 July 1907

If you read his profile here GEORGE AVERY you will see a newspaper article of how he was buried back on Kaponga...

Because I could not find his grave site I have been in contact with the Council in Kaponga and they told me he is not there !! nor are his two sons Alfred and Hugh although they are reported to have been buried there
... which does not mean they are not there

Because he was a very prominent business man in the town and was given a large farewell with expensive gifts it seemed to me that he should have some record, headstone etc - but no

I thought maybe the town of Kaponga just had a service for him in remembrance BUT the article names the pall bearers ...
His wife, Sarah, died 7 years later and she is buried in Omahu Cemetery in a double plot - the plot was "used" when she was interred but George is not with her there
- so it is not making any sense to me

Can you please help

while looking for Emma STENT I came across this . . .

Emma Stent married my great grandmother's brother and I have just been doing a research on all the women of that family.

I came across this very interesting write up about her father CAPTAIN JAMES HAYTER JACKSON who was one of the first 50 people to emigrate to New Zealand and he set up a whaling station in Marlborough. When he first arrived he spent the early years living with the famous maori chief Te Rauparaha.

BUT, for me, even more interesting is that Emma, his daughter, the woman I was researching, married twice - first marriage (to John Lynds who died in Australia somewhere) she had 4 children to.

The second marriage to Charles Stent she had another 16 CHILDREN TO !!! - (actually 10, see link below)

3 years on and the above info has now been amended after much research and HEAPS of help from Malcolm - read here: Emma JACKSON-LYNDS
