*1875 - 1876 Florence Llewellyn Price
- Florence died 4 Feb 1876 aged 5 months and is buried in Bolton St cemetery, Wellington

*1876 - 1962 Harvey 'Harry' Llewelyn Price
-- Harry married Lillian SIDDERS in 1911
- Lillian was from Kent, England. She was in a de facto relationship with Horace Edwin FERNEE who was still married to Emma Rhoda Palmer (1859-1936). They had a son Horace George Fernee (1896-1963). Lillian emigrated to NZ with 12 year old Horace in 1908. De facto Horace stayed in England and remarried in 1916 after a divorce from Emma.
* Harry & Lillian lived next door to his mother, Martha Price, at 28 Sussex Street, Masterton when Horace served as Private 23818 in WWI

*1878 - MARTHA 'Minnie' PRICE
-- Minnie married William Daniel McKAIN, 4 Jan 1899 at 30 Sussex St (against her mother's wishes who thought she could do better than a brushmaker). William was 1 of 15 children of Daniel McKain & Amelia O'Hara, confectioners in Lower Hutt ... see STORY BELOW

The MURDER/SUICIDE of Minnie Price & William McKain
Minnie Price married William Daniel McKain, 4 Jan 1899
After a month long honeymoon in Dunedin, Christchurch & Auckland, William and Minnie returned to Wellington where William pawned his violin in Johnsonville to buy a ticket to Palmerston North.
They arrived there on Valentine's Day and were staying at the Royal Hotel. Three nights later, on Friday 17 Feb, William was heard in his room dictating a letter for Minnie to write (this later showed premeditation, the contents in link below)
At 4:20 next morning William shot Minnie with a revolver whilst she was in bed. Twenty minutes later he shot her again. An hour and 20 minutes later he turned the gun on himself
-- Minnie was 20 & William was 22 --
more on the Palmerston North tragedy

What is amazing to me and obviously many at the time, is why, when the other hotel guests heard the first and subsequent shots, was something not done at 4:20am?? Instead, later that morning when the housekeeper was unable to get in their room she called the police

Against his wishes in the letter, William is buried at Taita & Minnie is buried at Masterton.

We regret to announce the death of Captain Hercules Anderson, father of Dr Anderson, of this town, which occurred this morning at an early hour at his residence in Walter Street. Captain Anderson, who has been marine superintendent of the Shaw, Savill and Albion Shipping Company for the last fifteen years, was well-known in Dunedin and Christchurch, his home being situated at the latter place, He had been in ill-health for some time past and only arrived in Blenheim at the beginning of this month, having been ordered by his medical adviser to make his home here for a time in the hope that the change would be for the benefit of his health. Up to within a few months ago Captain Anderson enjoyed the very best of health, and he had rarely experienced a day's illness. Recently, however, a form of liver complaint had made serious inroads on his constitution, and it was to seek medical advice from his son, Dr Anderson, who is in partnership with Dr Cleghorn in Blenheim, that he was visiting that place. The family will have much sympathy in their bereavement.

Up to within a few months ago Captain Anderson enjoyed the very best health, and he had rarely experienced a day's illness.

A few days ago he was reported to have much improved in health after a serious operation. The deceased was a native of Forfarshire, and had served his apprenticeship to the sea on the coast of Scotland. He was employed in the Albion Shipping Co's service until it merged into the present Shaw, Savill and Albion line, and in the latter's employ had command of a number of vessels. Later, his employers recognising his business and other abilities, appointed him to succeed the late Captain Anderson was a good seaman, thoroughly well liked and trusted by his employers and those serving below him, and respected by the public with whom he daily came in contact.

Nelson Evening Mail, 27 May 1903 WILLIAM as Acting District Health Officer
Dr Frengley (District Health Officer for Nelson-Westland-Marlborough Districts) who is at present in Wellington, is of the opinion that the consumption of oysters in this locality, has added largely to the cause of so many cases of enteric fever in Nelson. He therefore instructed Dr Anderson (Acting District Health Officer for Marlborough) to investigate the storage-beds of oysters which are on the Boulder Bank within the Nelson Harbour. Dr Anderson comes to the conclusion that the amount of contamination, which was found amongst these oyster localities, is quite enough to convince him that the oysters themselves have been receiving foul matter

The outbreak was due to the upsetting of a kerosene stove, on which the evening meal was being cooked, and in a few moments the building, an old one, was a mass of flames. Kingan was rather severely singed about the face in making his escape, but Renshaw was more unfortunate, his retreat being cut off, and only the timely arrival of the Fire Brigade averted a tragedy

... thanks to the message from Erin on 3-1-2011, I will attempt to work out the marriages I had mixed up
Erin wrote: .. My grandmother was Fiona Marion MacClure Walker who married Albert Victor King. However my Alberts parents were John Thomas King & Elizabeth Hudson. John Kings parents were Thomas King & Ann Belton. I believe you have the wrong Albert connection in your line ...

** there were 5 Albert Victor King mariages in NZ between 1889-1929
- they were:
1/ - 1889 - Albert Victor King (1858-1937)
- married Alice Elizabeth HOMES (1864-1902)
- they had a son, Lauritz Victor King who died of wounds in France 1916. At that time Albert & Alice lived in Tahunanui, Nelson

2/ - 1904 - Albert Victor King
- Albert REmarried to Jemima ESSON (1867-1945)
- they are buried together Plot 125, Block 007 at Seaview Rd Cemetery, Nelson. Not known where Alice was buried

3/ - 1911 - Albert Victor King (1884-1919)
- married Ann PATTINSON

4/ - 1926 - Albert Victor King (1894-1964)
- married Fiona Marion MacGlure WALKER (1905-1990)

5/ - 1929 - Albert Victor King
- married Emily Clara May HAWKEN (1875-1970)

There were only 3 Albert Victor King born in NZ (which of course means little except there was also only 3 deaths BUT one of them was not born in NZ!!!)
This makes for probable remarriages for some (see above)

The years of their births and parents were:
* 1884 - 1919 Albert Victor King
- son of John William KING & Hester Spicer LOVELL
- married Ann PATTINSON in 1911
ALBERT died aged 34 and buried Plot 026, Block 09 at Wakapuka Cemetery, Nelson

* 1894 - 1964 Albert Victor King
- son of John Thomas KING & Elizabeth HUDSON
ALBERT (we know) married Fiona Marion MacClure WALKER in 1926

* 1890 - ? Albert Victor King
- son of Thomas & Anstay ? KING

AND an Albert Victor King (not registered as born in NZ)
1858 - 1937 (see 1)

any help would be appreciated

Auckland Star, 20 February 1896 - Mr Joshua Ockleston
Mr Joshua Ockleston, one of the oldest and most respected settlers in the Hobsonville district, died suddenly yesterday. It appears that he was engaged on his farm as usual, and while lifting sheep into a cart he complained of a pain in his chest. He was immediately removed to his house, when all possible was done for him, but he expired in less than an hour. Deceased was 60 years of age. He was an active member of the Hobsonville Presbyterian Church, and frequently conducted the services, while he was also Superintendent of the Sunday-school. Deceased also took an interest in temperance and worked generally for the good of the district. His sudden end caused a shock to the whole district, for he was loved by all whom he came in contact with. He leaves behind him a widow and three grown-up sons. Deceased was a native of Cheshire, England
Auckland Star, 5 November 1929 - Mrs Elizabeth Ockleston
EIGHTY-FIVE YEARS RESIDENT - A very old inhabitant of Hobsonville, Mrs Elizabeth Ockleston, died on November 3 at the residence of her son, Mr R. Ockleston. She was born in Auckland 85 years ago. Her parents were the late Mr and Mrs Sims, who were among the hardy band of settlers who came from Scotland (on the Duchess of Argyle in 1842) was then a very small place, and in order to provide work for the new arrivals some of the men were employed cutting down Shortland Street at the magnificent rate of 2/6 per day (25 cents). It was not long before they ceased to require work found by the Government. Miss Sims was married in 1873 to the late Mr Joshua Ockleston, who had then been farming for some years at Hobsonville with his brother. Mr Ockleston died 33 years ago and his widow, left with a young family to rear, faced her task with that fortitude that seems to have been a feature of the women who came to make a hone in New Zealand in the early days. Mrs Ockleston was the last of the first generation of the Sims family, her brother, the late Mr Robert Sims, of Franklin, who only died recently (1842-1926), having been well over 80 years (84). The following children survive their parents:- Messrs J. Ockleston of the New Lynn Brick and Tile Co., Richard Ockleston of Hobsonville and W. Ockleston.
The funeral took place at Hobsonville, and was very largely attended, the Presbyterian Home Missioner, Mr E. A. Rimmer, conducting the service

New Zealand Herald, 8 February 1924 FATALITY AT HOBSONVILLE
A sad drowning accident occurred at Hobsonville this week, the victim being the 15 month-old daughter of Mr and Mrs W. A. Sinton. The infant, Olive Merle Sinton, crawled into a bath of water sunk in the ground in the back yard and was drowned almost immediately.

The Sydney Morning Herald, 4 November 1902 DEATH of Mr GEORGE CATER
BULLI, Tuesday - Much regret is expressed at the news cabled from New Zealand of the death of Mr George Cater, manager of South Bulli and Bellambi Mines, who left here about ten days ago to recruit his health after a severe illness. His wife and children accompanied him.
The Sydney Morning Herald, 5 November 1902
Word was received here to-day that Mr. George Cater, manager of South Bulli and Bellambi Colliery had died at Auckland. Mr. Cater who was between 35 and 40 years of age had not enjoyed good health for some time past, and a couple of weeks ago his medical adviser ordered him complete rest and change. He decided to visit New Zealand. The news of his death naturally came us a great shock to his parents, the directors of the collieries of which he had charge, and his many friends. Mr. Cater was a prominent member of the Woonona Bowling Club and a member of the Wollongong Masonic lodge. He was one of the managers who worked all night on rescue work in connection with the Mount Kembla disaster, and his efforts on that occasion were very highly spoken of.
His widow is the fourth daughter of Mr Phillip Pryor and sister to the present Mayor
South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus, 8 November 1902
On Tuesday the sad news reached Woonona by cable from Auckland, of the death of Mr George Cater, manager of the South Bulli and Woonona collieries. He had been ailing for some time from a serious affection of the ear, and was in a very weak state when last Monday week he left with Mrs Cater and the family (two), for a trip to Auckland, where a sister resides. On Monday a cable came through stating he was not expected to live, and on Tuesday the news of his death, so far nothing more is known. Mr Cater came from Burwood, Newcastle, to this district to the management of the Woonona mine, and has been here about 11 years. Of Him it can be sincerely said that he had the esteem of all his friends, and the respect of all as a straight-forward man. His father, Mr T. Cater, took his place when he left for the trip. Mr Cater was about 34 years of age and was treasurer of the local Masonic Lodge

* 1st SETTLER OF HOBSONVILLE. Originally from Buckinghamshire. He emigrated to New Zealand arriving in Port Nicholson 39 Oct 1841 on the 'Gertrude'. In 1854 he bought land in Hobsonville becoming one of the first European settlers in the area. It was there that he set up a prosperous business making drain pipes, bricks and tiles for the increasing number of settlers. Much of the clay he used was being sourced from Limeburners Bay, which is now an archaeological site. When he was 33 years old, Clark was accused of bigamy at the Wellington Supreme Court (go to his link above), but he was sentenced not guilty. In 1908 Clark's Potteries became R.O. Clark Limited. His great grandson, Thomas Edwin 'Tom' Clark (later Sir Thomas Clark), inherited the business setting up a ceramics company which eventually became known as Crown Lynn Potteries Ltd.
