GRANT, John Gildroy VC
born: Aug 26 1889 in Hawera
parents: George & Jane GRANT
volunteered: for the New Zealand Expeditionary Force in June 1915. Served with the battalion throughout 1916 and 1917, and the following year had reached the rank of sergeant. He was 29 years old when he performed the deed for which he was awarded the Victoria Cross. On 1 Sep 1918 near Bancourt, the leading waves of the battalion on reaching a crest of high ground, found that a line of enemy machine-gun posts offered a serious obstacle to further advance. The company, however, advanced against these posts under point-blank fire and when about 18m away Grant, closely followed by a comrade, rushed ahead of his platoon, entering the centre post and demoralising the garrison so that the platoon were able to mop up the positions. In the same manner he rushed the post on the left and the remaining posts were quickly occupied and cleared by his company.
Shortly afterwards he was promoted to second lieutenant and traveled to Cambridge in England for officer training in October 1918. He was wounded in November, within days of his return to the front. His service with the NZEF ended with his repatriation to New Zealand in 1919

burials at ELTHAM cemetery, Taranaki 1898 - 1939

burials ELTHAM CEMETERIES 1898 - 1939 total 904
names taken from South Taranaki Cemetery Database
- a total of 904 recorded burials as at March 2014 -

about ELTHAM Cemetery
In the early days the cemetery was referred to as the RAWHITIROA cemetery & the NGAERE LAWN cemetery. With subsequent local authority boundary changes, it is now the ELTHAM CEMETERY situated at the corner of Rawhitiroa and Anderson Road.
The entrance gate is on Anderson Road:
* The LAWN BURIAL site is on the RIGHT
* The PIONEER cemetery is on the LEFT with stillborn and children in the front
* At the bend of the lawn area, on the LEFT, is the RSA Cemetery, both burial & cremation
* Continuing along the drive way, you come to the original denominational site:
- On your LEFT is the PRESBYTERIAN site rows 1 to 8, followed by the ANGLICAN site rows 1 to 12.
- On your RIGHT, the METHODIST site 1 to 8, followed by CATHOLIC site 1 to 8. There is an extension along the Catholic site to extend the general burial site for all denominations
* At the very far end of the Presbyterian site is the CREMATION site

about the cemetery DATABASE
It was noticed whilst doing this journal, that a number of same death dates kept occurring, 19-5-1916, 24-6-1916 and many others (all 7 Harrison were listed as dying 29-10-1919!). It was also noticed that all those listed as dying on these dates had either no name, or no age, or both.
I presume these dates are used when the information is unknown!
This then required that all people be researched individually & their ages & death dates were added here (if found). Those not found are left as the database has them. If you find exact dates that repeat often, treat with caution

* All (database) deaths & burials are exactly 2 days apart (this seldom really happens) so, as always, use the following as a guide only for your own research
* Database does not show days, weeks or months. If a child died aged 3 months their record will show aged 3 (important to remember)
* Plot numbers here are the 'new' Plot numbers. For the old Plot numbers search at the above database link

FOOTNOTE
a very special thank you to Wai-Yin, Eltham, Kaponga, Library Plus Officer of the South Taranaki District Council who wrote me 21 March 2014:
... "the total number of interments in this cemetery is anyone's guess!
A story I have come across is that people have come into the cemetery to bury their dead (ashes?) at night illegally, no interment cost! Also, at one time, there was a very careless Saxton who buried children/stillborn under bushes/trees. These are all hearsay. The official number I have no occasion to find out either because some of the plots were reserved a long time ago but not used and some plots have burial and ashes interred, that is, multiple interments. Some have double depth interment and lastly memorial only plot. The oldest record was in 1898 and we do have hard copy of about 80% of the plot purchase/interment records"...

Andreas BELDY + Alice Agnes FROST/Stonyer - Timaru

ANDREAS 'Andrew' BELDY (1825-1876)
son of Andreas BELDY & Maria MERSENSKI
was born in Südliche Weinstraße, Germany & emigrated to London about 1850

Andreas married Anne Eliza TIPPLE in London, February 1859. Nothing known of Anne and she may have died prior to his emigrating to New Zealand.

Andreas Beldy next married in New Zealand on 17 August 1870 to:
Alice Agnes STONYER (nee FROST)
- Alice had first married Richard Stonyer (1835-1869) in Walsall, England in 1865. Richard was born in Belbroughton, Worcestershire, a son of Richard STONYER (1793-1853) and of Martha DOVEY (1804-1884).
NOTES on Richard Stonyer senior (1793-1853)
* the late Trevor Reeves has that Richard was found by his son, John Stonyer, robbed and murdered at the age 60)
* David Dewick has that Richard died of dropsy

Richard & Alice left Gravesend 20 Sep 1865 on the 'Mermaid', arriving into Lyttelton 2 Jan 1866. At least 3 of his siblings emigrated to New Zealand in Oct 1863 but some returned. No children found born in NZ to Richard & Alice. He was working as a miller at the Temuka Mills when he went missing on 20 Oct 1869. Richard was found drowned in the Opihi River. He was 34. The Inquest

Timaru Herald, 27 August 1870
On August 17, at Timaru, Andreas Beldy to Alice Agnes Stonyer
- no children found to Andreas & Alice

Lyttelton Times, 10 December 1868 GREAT FIRE IN TIMARU
Monday last may indeed be called "black Monday" for Timaru, as on that day there occurred one of the most disastrous fires that has ever taken place in New Zealand - a fire that in the short space of a little over an hour swept away over 30 buildings, and destroyed, as far as we at present know, at least £70,000 worth of property
(Dec 2013 equivalent of $7,837,888.). Unfortunately the wind was blowing fiercely from the nor'-west at the time, and to this cause may be assigned the reason that so many buildings, both isolated and in blocks, were destroyed, as the wind carried the burning embers and fired the shingled roofs of houses 200 or even 300 yards distant from where the fire was raging.
As the Timaru Herald office was destroyed, and all our staff were engaged in saving what was possible from the burning building, we cannot give in this issue so full an account of the tremendous conflagration as we should have wished.
The following is a list of the buildings destroyed:-
On the West Side, Main South Road

... There was a small roadway between the stores of Clarkson and Turnbull and the next building, Mr Beldy's shop, but this was covered over by an upper span containing one store room. Mr Beldy's place was of course, next devoured, and as far as we know, he saved nothing and was uninsured. Adjoining Mr Beldy's shop, on the south side, was the chemist and druggist shop of Dr Butler, who resided on the premises ...

Star, 2 June 1870 FIRE AT TIMARU
A fire broke out last night, at Messrs Chandler and Jenkins' grocers shop, by which it, and the small block of buildings adjoining, belonging to Mr Cullmann, were utterly destroyed.
When the fire was nearly over, the shop of Mr Beldy, tobacconist, in another part of the town, was found to be on fire. Failing to awake the inmates, the front door was burst open, and the fire was got under with some little damage to property. Mr Todd was, we believe, the first person in the shop, and assistance being at hand, the fire was soon got under, though not without some little damage to property, some of which seemed quite unnecessary - the smashing of the front windows especially. The proprietor of the shop, Mr Beldy, who was in bed upstairs, was soon present on the scene and was quite unable to account for the fire break out. The origin of this fire is also unknown. It is supposed to have arisen from lucifer matches lying about on the floor which somehow or other got ignited


Timaru Herald, 26 November 1870 ACCIDENT
An accident happened on Wednesday, Nov 9th, which might have proved very serious. Three men were driving in a buggy in the direction of Timaru on the other side of Saltwater Creek bridge. By some accident they all were pitched out somewhere about the hill overlooking the Saltwater Creek flat, and the pair of horses with the empty buggy came galloping down the incline towards the bridge. Just before arriving at the bridge, the horses were turned aside by Mr Beldy of the volunteer corps who was passing at the time, and were at last stopped by him. One of the men pitched out was somewhat hurt about the face and another had some severe abrasions on the leg

Press, 11 June 1875 ALICE BELDY IN LONDON
From our London Correspondent. - The Duke of Edinburgh, a fine vessel of 2000 tons, belonging to the New Zealand Shipping Company, sails to-day or to-morrow from Gravesend, having left the docks on Wednesday; she is commanded by Captain Mosey; she is bound to your own port of Timaru and she conveys about two hundred free-passage emigrants for the New Zealand Government. The young women and girls, to the number of forty, are placed in charge of a matron, whom some of your readers will know, Mrs Beldy of Timaru. She came to England but six weeks ago, arriving by the Nelson on the 26th of June, but found the voyage and the change of air so beneficial to her health, that she is quite ready to cross the sea again without further delay. I had the pleasure yesterday of seeing her in the performance of her official duties at the New Zealand Emigrants Depot at Blackwell. The girls and other unmarried females going out to Timaru by this ship are said to be of a good class and I am sure they will be kindly cared for by Mrs Beldy.


Press, 18 November 1875 ARRIVAL OF THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH

Mr A. Beldy, an old resident in Timaru, died rather suddenly during Wednesday night. He had a severe illness some months ago which it was feared would be fatal and although he recovered sufficiently to attend to his business he was never strong afterwards. He was compelled to abstain from business a few days ago through illness but was walking about on the day of his death. The immediate cause of death was inflammation of the lungs.

We have, with regret, to chronicle the sudden death, on Wednesday night, of a very old settler, Mr A. Beldy, of Timaru. He was well known through South Canterbury in connection with all volunteer movements. He took a very active part in the Timaru Artillery Company, and was universally esteemed by the members of that corps as well as by the townspeople. He had for the last few months been ailing, but no serious results were entertained. He will be remembered by many Christchurch volunteers, being till lately, a regular attender at all camps held here.

The deceased having been a member of the Masonic body and the Oddfellows, a large number of the Brethren of the Lodge of St John, the Caledonian Lodge and the Star of Canterbury Lodge attended the funeral in regalia.

NOTES
* A John Alfred Burmester was a storekeeper of the 'Danevirke Tea Mart' in Dannevirke in the late 1880s (lived in Denmark street).
Bush Advocate, 7 June 1888 The partnership hither existing between James Cumming Fraser and John Alfred Burmester, as storekeepers, is this day dissolved by mutual consent. All debts due to the late firm must be paid to Mr J. A. Nurmester who will also discharge all liabilities.
J. C. FRASER
J. A. BURMESTER
Witness to the signatures - JOHN BARGH, Danevirke, June 2, 1888
* JOHN ALFRED Burmester also had the Mail run to Weber.
Bush Advocate, 7 November 1889 Mr Burmester made his maiden trip with the mail to Weber on Monday, returning next day. He reports that the road is not in the best of conditions for fast travelling, the journey taking him about six hours to accomplish. He considers the district a very fine one indeed - for mosquitoes - which are of a greatly superior variety to those about here.
* In 1890 he was appointed the Returning Officer at Danevirke. In 1901 he was a member of the Ruahine Mounted Rifles, as Sergeant J. A. Burmester, when they competed for the Coleman Shield
John's wife (Ada nee ?) was very involved in the community. She held a dancing class, wrote a couple of 'papers', entitled "Woman's Mission", "Reading', & "Mental Science", played the piano & organ and sung at numerous local concerts. She was on the committee of the Dannevirke Library and a member of the Dannevirke Debating Society.
* They had a daughter 23 July 1893, Vera Burmester. Vera married in New Zealand in 1919 to Morgan Cyprian McMahon O'BRIEN
In 1908 they were living 'back' in England when he wrote this letter, stating he had been a resident of over twenty years in the Hawke's Bay. They appear again in Auckland in 1918. Ada Burmester died 20 May 1926 aged 63 & is buried at Hillsborough cemetery, Mt Roskill Auckland. Her headstone reads: In Loving Memory of ADA, Wife of John Alfred Burmester. Alfred returned to England as did his daughter and her husband Morgan Cyprian Mcmahon O'Brien (1886-) (14 Winchester Road, Worthing, Sussex in 1932. Mays Hill Road, Shortlands, Kent in 1935)

LAWS on running a PUB in Otago 1874

A long, (but interesting) article regarding the rules and regulations on running a hotel/pub in Otago in 1874 appeared in the Otago Witness 25 April 1874
I have included the link here if you wish to read the article in full and have listed below some of the most interesting (and often amusing, compared with today)

ANNUAL LICENSING MEETING
The first sitting of the new Licensing Bench under the Act of 1873, commenced at noon on Tuesday in the Resident magistrate's Court, before J. Bathgate, Esq., Chairman and A. C. Strode Esq., J. Fulton Esq., and W. Mason Esq., Commissioners. Before commencement of the business, Mr Bathgate spoke as follows:-
...In opening for the first time the Licensing Court, established under the provisions of the Licensing Act of last session, a few remarks on the subject may be deemed advisable. Important changes in the law have been made.

1 A permanent Court, consisting of the Resident magistrate and three Commissioners, appointed by the Government, has been constituted for the granting of licenses ...

2 Full power is conferred on the Court to grant or refuse any certificate in its discretion ...

3 The police are required to be present at the Court, and report to the Court on the conduct of every licensed house and upon the accommodation provided

4 Two-thirds of the adult residents in a district may memorialise against the granting of any certificate. The power is thus placed in the hands of the people themselves to shut up any house not wanted ...

5 Any householder within the district may appear in person and state objections to the granting or renewal of any license applied for

6 The provisions in the Provincial Ordinances in regard to accommodation and other matters are not repealed ...

...The purpose of these laws being to regulate the liquor traffic ...
* to take care that the traffic is kept under proper control and to lessen the temptation to the weak, the reckless and the improvident, by restricting the number of licensed houses strictly to what is found to be necessary ...
* to deal rigorously with those who encourage drunkenness, gambling, prostitution or crime ...

...In order that the princilpes which will regualte the decision of the Court may be fully known, I will conclude by giving a summary of them:-
I The accommodation prescribed in the Provincial Ordinance to be rigidly required

II The law as regards Sunday traffic to be declared to be operative. Any infringement will operate to prevent renewal

III Unnecessary competition to be discouraged by the refusal or withdrawal of licenses where the accommodation is apparently not required

IV No license to be granted to an unmarried man, unless in exceptional cases. The law assumes that licensed houses are for the benefit of travelers. No house for the use of travellers can be properly conducted unless under the management of a matron

V Licenses to be granted to widows only in very exceptional cases

VI Any licensee who may be reported as showing incivility or refusing to give information to the Police, or as keeping a dirty house, or allowing disorderly conduct on his premises, or being intoxicated himself, will be refused a renewal

VII Any licensee permitting gambling on his premises will be refused a renewal. No, I may state, that the character of a house will not save them if gambling has been carried on ... a fine young man's prospects in life blasted and himself sentenced to twelve months imprisonment in consequence of gambling in a house in Dunedin, apparently respectable

VIII A list of person thrice convicted of drunkenness in one year will be made up by the police and supplied to licensees. Any licensee supplying such confirmed drunkards with liquor will be refused a renewal

IX Licensees allowing prostitutes to assemble or meet other persons on their premises will be refused a renewal

X No license shall be granted to or renewal given, to any person who is the owner of houses let as brothels or to prostitutes

XI The granting of bottle licenses will be conferred with great caution, and only in cases where the Court is satisfied there will be no abuse of the privilege. None of those shams about clapping a piece of tin foil on a bottle will be allowed now ...
(Tin foil was used as a filling for tooth cavities prior to the 20th century !)

Nelson, Marlborough - January 1854

Looking for ancestors in very early New Zealand? Perhaps they were in Nelson

NELSON, is the second-oldest settled city in New Zealand and the oldest in the South Island. Itwas proclaimed a city by royal charter in 1858. It was named in honour of the Admiral Horatio Nelson who defeated both the French and Spanish fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Many roads and public areas around the city are named after people and ships associated with that battle. Trafalgar Street is the main shopping axis of the city. Nelson's Maori name, Whakatu, means 'build' 'raise' or 'establish'

Te Puke Times, 7 July 1916 ARTHUR PRUDEN writes home from the front
We have been given permission by Mrs A. F. Pruden to publish the following extract from a letter she received this week from her husband, Sergt-Major A. F. Pruden, who is "somewhere in France" -
"We are billeted at present in a French village, just where, of course, I cannot say. The men are all in barns, bedded down with straw, etc. It is fairly cold weather just now, very much like Taranaki spring weather, a good deal of rain, mostly at night, with dull days and a cold wind. We go on a route march every afternoon, with packs up, and that warms us up, I can tell you. But it is pretty cold at night. I am living in a house with our Major and two sergeants, the acting quarter-master-sergeant, and Major's batman, and am very comfortable. We have a nice room to sit in, furnished with a warmer that sends heat out all around. By the time you get this I expect we will be in the trenches doing our bit and about time too. It is about eight months now that I have been in camp, and nothing done. We passed through a good bit of France coming here, and it is, without doubt, a beautiful country. No wonder the Germans wanted it. It was a great sight to see hundred of acres of grape vines. The whole country seems to be under crop, but in such small patches. A field of about ten acres will have in most cases about a dozen patches of crop, all in different stages of growth. They use every yard of ground right up to the doors of the houses, and also up the slopes and to the top of the hills. It must be all spade work, as the patches they have in are too small for a plough to be worked, especially on the hill-sides. There is hardly any stock to be seen, and in the country hardly a fence. The roads even are not fenced. How they get cattle from one place to another I don't know, unless they lead them. In the villages they have live hedges, and there are a good many trees about. In the summer it must be very pretty. At present the trees are just coming into leaf. The country must carry a great population, for there is a village every two or three miles, and farm houses in between. You never saw such old-fashioned houses as they have here - all built of stone or brick, with tile roofs. A lot of them have the date of their building let into the wall or roof with different coloured tiles or bricks. One in this village is dated 1871, which makes it 155 years old. Yet the street of the place are a disgrace. Some of them, or I may say, most of them, are only half a chain wide, with a ditch along one side half full of stagnant mud and water. All the slops and refuse from the houses are thrown into the streets, which in most cases are half up to the boot-tops in mud, so you can guess the state things are in. Inside the houses the people are as clean as any I ever saw, so I suppose it is the town boards that are to blame. There is no water supply or drainage of any sort. The people get their water from the public pumps by the bucket-full. Out of the towns the roads, or most of them are good, metalled in most cases, and level for miles. In some districts they are as white as chalk and as smooth as a table.
We are working seven days a week now, no holiday, even on Easter Monday, and we had none on Good Friday (yesterday). On Sundays we have Church parade in the morning and route march in the afternoon. The four Company Sergt-Majors went through orders last night as 2nd class warrant officers, so look our for 'swank' when i come home. We had a shuffle round of officers before we left Egypt and the Major of our Company was appointed 2nd in command of the 3rd battalion. We got a major form the 1st battalion and a grand officer he is. He will do me for the rest of my time in the army.
I am keeping very well, and like this part of the globe much better than the desert. Remember me to all friends.

Te Puke Times, 14 May 1918 MILITARY SERVICE BOARD
At a meeting of the Military Service board at Rotorua on Friday last, Mrs Pruden appeared to support the appeal of her only son, Pte. L. J. Pruden, who had been at the front for 14 months, and was now at Trentham camp, about to return with the 40th reinforcements. She said her husband had been killed at the front, and she wanted her boy to help on the farm. He had come back from the front on leave owing to his mother's application. - The Board informed Mrs Pruden that they would give her application most sympathetic consideration and send her their decision in a note

Bay Of Plenty Times, 11 September 1918 KATIKATI NOTES

Hawera & Normanby Star, 15 November 1918 DEATH OF GEORGE senior
... We regret having to record the first death from the epidemic, that of Mr G. Pruden, well known in this district and Ratikati, which occurred at 11 o'colock this morning. The deceased gentleman was taken with influenza last week, and on Sunday his condition was such as to necessitate his removal to the hospital, ehre he gradually grew worse, succumnbing this morning.
Te Puke Times, 18 November 1918
... The death took place at Tauranga last week of Mr George Pruden, father of the late Sergt-Major Pruden, of Te Puke, who lost his life on the Western front

Mrs Pruden's farm on the No 2 Road has been sold to Mr Grant of Mangere, at a satisfactory figure

Auckland Star, 11 July 1927 DAIRY PRODUCE EXPORTER
I read with pleasure your editorial on the 'Dairy Produce Exporter'. I am glad to see someone with more brains than I possess sees eye to eye with me. I consider the publication of such a paper as the 'Exporter' a waste of good money these hard times. The excellent papers of the larger towns of New Zealand are always ready to give ample airing to both sides of such an important question as the marketing and selling of our butter. I understood it was the policy of the Control Board to save money for the farmer. I am quite certain the bulk of the farming community would much prefer to do without such a publication as the 'Exporter' and get the cost of producing it added to their butterfat cheques. EVA PRUDEN, Tauranga

Auckland Star, 7 February 1933 TAURANGA NOTES
Miss Eileen Bennett, who has been visiting Tauranga as the guest of Mrs Pruden, Cameron Road, has returned to Hamilton

FOOT NOTES
* Arthur Pruden was a Ratepayer in 1908-09 on Section 32, Shaw Rd, Tauranga
* Eva Pruden (nee Clayton, widow) was living in Cameron Rd., Tauranga in 1928
* descendants of this family are still living No 2 Rd., Te Puke
* Thomas Albert Pruden (Arthur's brother) was also an artist. When the new hotel at Te Puke opened in July 1908, the Bay of Plenty Times reported on the opening.
They wrote: "The painting, papering and general decoration effected by Mr. T A Pruden of Tauranga, has given an artistic finish to the structure which does him the greatest credit"


PHOTO
the PRUDEN home at Rawhitiroa
thank you to anafred for the use of this photo taken from her posting

anafred is a direct descendant and writes:
... "The photograph was taken approximately 10 years ago (2004). There was at that stage still pieces of the original glass around the outside of the house although no windows were intact. The homestead is now in a very dilapidated state. it is situated on Anderson Road, Rawhitiroa which is on the outskirts of Eltham"
... "there is actually a "hidden" staircase behind the front fireplace (what I presume would have been the scullery/parlor) which leads to the attic which I was informed had been set aside for the "maids" quarters. The hallway of the house is wide enough to drive a small car down. From one of the top windows you used to be able to see the words "my love" in the stonework of the garden area. Unfortunately the last time I went there the cattle had destroyed most of this and it was just rubble"

John Nolan, a miner at Blue Spur, was killed in his sluicing claim this morning by a fall of earth. The deceased and his mate, John Keane, had a sluicing claim up the creek about two miles above the bridge. They were working in the face at the time, getting ready to sluice when a thin layer of dirt, containing about 13 cwt, peeled off without the slightest warning and struck Nolan, knocking him backwards over the tail-race. He was only partially buried, but the falling stones struck him in several places, and he never spoke. He moved his hands twice, and died as soon as he was extricated from the dirt
