De SMIDT, Henry Jospeh - 4 March 1872 aged 52
De SMIDT, Louisa Christina - 9 July 1904 aged 73 (nee Gohl)
* Henry & Louise married in NZ in 1863. One of their daughters, Dorothea Theresa De Smidt (1866-1927) married Rt. Hon. Sir Joseph George Ward 1st Baronet of Wellington, GCMG, PC (1856-1930) & 17th Prime Minister of NZ. Born in Melbourne, Joseph joined the post office as a message boy in 1869 but was soon sacked for being impudent to his employer. In the meantime he had learned Morse code and later, as postmaster general, he enjoyed confounding dignitaries escorting him on tours of inspection by smartly tapping out his own telegrams. Ward then worked as a clerk at Samuel Nichol's general store on the Bluff waterfront until 1876 when he briefly joined the Public Works Department as chief clerk, handling the loading and unloading of ships. Sometime in 1877 or 1878 Hannah Ward Barron lent her son £800 with which he built storage sheds on the waterfront. Joseph Ward was beginning what became a lifetime mercantile enterprise buying wool, grain and skins. In time he acquired shipping agencies and sold supplies such as grass seed, sheep dip, fertiliser and supplementary stockfeed to Southland's rapidly growing number of small farmers. In 1878, when still only 21, he was elected to the Campbelltown Borough Council. In 1881 he added the Bluff Harbour Board to what became an impressive list of political trophies. In November – aged 25 – he was mayor, a position which he held until 1886 and again in 1897–98. In February 1883 he was chairman of the harbour board as well, a position from which he was able to influence freight rates and wharf space – both important to J. G. Ward and Company. His company now had its headquarters in the Crescent in Invercargill. Ward held the chairmanship of the harbour board until February 1888, resuming it briefly in 1893 when his company grew shaky and freight rates were much on his mind. He remained a member until 1917.
In 1883 27-year-old Joseph Ward, handsome, olive-skinned and with an expansive moustache, married the tall, graceful Theresa Dorothea De Smidt, who was 10 years younger and the daughter of Bluff's rival publican. There were two ceremonies at Bluff, probably for religious reasons, one on 4 December and the other on the fifth. They were to have five children, four of whom spent their childhood years in Bluff before going away to private schools. It was a most successful marriage.
When Seddon died on 10 June 1906, Ward was in London. He hastened back to New Zealand and was sworn into office as prime minister on 6 August 1906... lots more at his link

North Otago Times, 3 April 1901
Louisa Dickens, a married woman accompanied by her son, a lad of 13, died on the Monowai, shortly after the steamer arrived at the Bluff, on the passage from Melbourne. The circumstances necessitated an inquest at the Bluff. The post mortem disclosed extensive lung trouble and peritonitis, but the cause of death was rupture of a perforated ulcer on the stomach. The jury returned a verdict that death resulted from natural causes. Mrs Dickens' husband is said to be in Palmerston North

ABLEY, Frederick - 20 Jan 1905 aged 36
Otago Witness, 25 Jan 1905
The body of a man named Fred Abley, aged thirty-six, missing since Saturday week (7th Jan), came out to the colony as a fireman and greaser on the Tokomaru two months ago, was found alongside the wharf at Bluff on Thursday after the departure of the Theresa Ward for the island. He was last seen on the evening of the 7th inst; walking down the wharf with a parcel under his arm and it is supposed that he fell between the wharf and the cutter variance when trying to get on board. Apparently the body was churned up from the bottom by the Aotea, which took its departure on Wednesday and carried underneath the wharf to the other side by the action of the waves. Deceased leaves a wife and two children in County Essex, England

BUTCHER, Frederick - 29 July 1914 aged 65
Mataura Ensign, 30 July 1914 THE BLUFF FIRE One of the biggest fires that has ever occurred at Bluff for over a decade commenced in the Club Hotel Buildins at midnight on Tuesday. By the fire at Bluff in the Club Hotel buildings in the early hours of Wednesday (29th) morning three lives were lost namely Peter MONSON (55), Fred BUTCHER (66) and John Thomas BROOK (22)
Brook, a Private in the Bluff territorials, was a fireman and lodged at the hotel. He was due at his work in the railway shed at six o'clock and as he did not turn up inquiries were made. Brook had only arrived from Lumsden the previous week to take up his duties at the Bluff. He was a single man, 22 years of age. On the night preceding the fire he arrived at the hotel from a hard day's work and his remark to one of the hotel staff was, "I am dead tired and I am going to have a good sleep." He went straight to his room and from that minute nothing was seen of him again. A careful search of the place failed to reveal any human remains under the bedroom he occupied (room 6) but it is possible that the unfortunate man had groped his way out into the corridor and had been overcome by the heavy smoke.
Monson was an American Swede and had been employed on the barque Irene as ship's carpenter. His charred body was found in a bent-up tangled wreckage of the bedstead (room 15), where he was evidently suffocated in his sleep.
Butcher, the third victim, commonly known as "Blucher", was a well-known identity, an old character of both Invercargill and Bluff, being an ex man-o'-warsman.
There were many heroic actions during the progress of the fire. Two of he maidservants were rescued in the nick of time, one being unconscious with her night clothes on fire. Another became stupefied and was unable to move when a man caught hold of her and carried her down the fire escape. The fire brigade rendered excellent service under trying circumstances

After the death of their son John in 1866 Harriet left Edward to go back home to her parents. While she was there she found out she was pregnant with Margaret and her parents sent her back to NZ. Around this time, for some reason, Edward McGraw changed his name to James Clark. He then started working for the Marine Department as a Lighthouse Keeper and all records from then onwards are under the name of James Clark. He was first appointed to the Lighthouse Service on 1 May 1867 as a Probational Assistant Lighthouse Keeper at Taiaroa Heads.

Western Star, 2 June 1894
On Wednesday about 1.30pm, a body was observed floating close to the wharf at the eastern end at the Bluff. Messrs F. Fordham, A. Beaton and Smith took a boat and brought it ashore, when it was found to be that of the young lad Cobbett, who was supposed to have deserted from the barque Lochnagar during her recent stay at port. He had acted as a cabin boy and was a smart young fellow, fairly well educated, steady and popular among his shipmates. As he had left letters for London in his berth, also clothes &x., his shipmates thought he had probably fallen overboard. Captain Gasson thought he had deserted and, after acquainting the police, wrote him off the articles as having deserted. The body was much decomposed and it seems that the skull was fractured across the crown from side to side, indicating that deceased when falling overboard must have struck something. The night was very dark when he was lost and it is supposed that he walked over the wharf when returning to the ship. He was rather shortsighted and this may have had a good deal to do with the accident which caused his death. It is understood he has a mother living in London and that he was her only son.

DONALDSON - On the 22nd June (accidentally killed at Anderson's Bay), Robert, sixth son of William and Eliza Donaldson; aged nine years and six months. Deeply regretted.
Press 25 June, 1897
A SAD OCCURRENCE - SUFFOCATED IN A STONE WALL. A little boy named Robert Donaldson, aged nine and a half years, the son of Mr William Donaldson, farmer of Anderson's Bay, near Dunedin, met with his death in a most extraordinary and pitiable manner on Tuesday. In the company his younger brother, he left his father's place on a rabbit-hunting expedition on the property of Mr A. Mathieson, of Tomahawk on on the Peninsula. About midday they chased a rabbit into a hole in a dry stone wall. The boy Donaldson put his head and shoulders into the hole and in doing so evidently dislodged a large stone, weighing 50lb, and other smaller ones, which fell upon his neck and shoulders, pinning him so securely that although he struggled desperately he was unable to extricate himself. His brother endeavoured to render aid, but the stone was so heavy that he was not possessed of sufficient strength to remove it. The boy Donaldson then told the other lad that he was dying and requested him to go and tell his father. The lad started off for Mr Donaldson's place, which was about a quarter of a mile away and the father hurrying to the spot removed the stone with difficulty from off the poor little fellow. When taken out the lad was found to be quite dead. The body was removed to the house and doctor Gordon Macdonald was telephoned for. The latter arrived as quickly as possible and made an examination of the body. The face was found to be covered with blood and there was a slight abrasion on the boy's back, but no bones were broken. He expressed the opinion that death was due to suffocation. At an inquest held on the body the jury returned a verdict to the effect that the lad was accidentally killed while rabbiting in a stone wall fence by stones loosening and pressing their weight on his body.
Robert is buried in Plot 49, Block 4 at Anderson's Bay, with his mother Eliza & sister in-law Rebecca, 1st wife of his brother David see ... 17

William was born 14 Feb 1886 in Wellington, the 1st of 5 children of Orazio Gini (1864-1940) & Julia Ann Allen (1885-1955). Orazio was from Livorno, Italy, naturalised in 1890 and a Timber Worker in Wellington.
* William Gini had first married Rhoda Mary Veronica Chapman (1890-1962) in 1915. They had a son, Nigel William John Gini (1917-2012) in Wellington. William received a decree nisi in Christchurch, 19 June 1924 on the grounds of Rhoda's desertion

Annie is buried Plot 18, Block 51 at Anderson's Bay. With her is her sister-in-law Rowena Ann 'Rowie' Knight in 1918 aged 20 (a victim of the Flu Pandemic). Annie's mother-in-law Eliza Knight in 1936 aged 65 and her father-in-law William Edward Knight in 1946 aged 88. Also on their headstone is written: (in memory of) Oswald Bertram Reynolds, Gunner 2/2519, 1st Battery, Killed in action 25 Sep 1916 aged 24. Oswald was killed at Somme, France. He rests in peace in Guards Cemetery, Lesboeufs. He was a son of Alfred Reynolds & Margaret Rachel Lewis of Dunedin (because his name is on the headstone directly below Rowena's, I only assume he may have been her fiance?)
* Annie's widower, Sydney William Knight next married Ina McLeod (1906-1997) in 1931. Sydney died 23 Sep 1966 aged 75 in Dunedin and his ashes buried Plot 277, Block 45S, Soldiers Interment at Andersons Bay.

Eliza Donaldson (Mercer) died in Dunedin on 27 Dec 1906 aged 49
Evening Star, 27 Dec 1906
DONALDSON - On the 27th December, at 84 High street, Dunedin, Eliza, the beloved wife of William Donaldson, of Macandrew's Bay, Peninsula; aged 49 years. Deeply regretted.
Eliza is buried Plot 49, Block 4, at Anderson's Bay Cemetery

William Donaldson died in Marton, Manawatu, on 26 March 1932 aged 85
Otago Daily Times, 30 March 1932
DONALDSON - On March 26, 1932, at his son's residence, Marton, North Island, William, beloved husband of the late Eliza Donaldson, late of Macandrew Bay, Otago Peninsula; aged 85 years. Interred at Marton
William is buried Plot 22, Block 1, Row VII in the Old area at Mt View Cemetery, Marton
William died at his son's residence in Marton in 1932. At this time, by process of elimination, I am presuming the son was either William (1876-1935) because he was up in that area. His wife had died in Wanganui in 1914 and her death notice said 'Feilding Papers please copy', although by his death in 1935 he was a 'well known' farmer in Dargaville. It may have been James (1878-1939) of whom I have no information yet. Research continues

TIMELINE of Christina Gilbert
c1840 Christina arrived in NZ as a child
1850 Christina married William Jones (1829-1871) 17 June 1850 (she was 15 - the legal age then was 12). They had a son in Wellington, William James Jones (1851-1901, buried below). They later separated and divorced.
c1852 Christina next lived with George Baker Nye (1826-1907, previously twice married) & had 2 daughters in Foxton, Elizabeth 'Lizzie Nye (1853-1942) & Nancy Ellen Nye (1855-1855 aged 5 weeks). Christina left George just after the death of Nancy (leaving daughter Lizzie to be brought up by a widowed aunt, who adopted her in 1864). Christina went back to Wellington.
1855 Christina next married widower Michael Dixon (1810-1883) as his 2nd wife (Michael 1st married Sarah Shepherd (1808-1843, buried Karori), their children were early settlers of Masterton. Michael & Christina moved to Masterton but not long later Christina took off to Wellington on his horse. Michael retrieved the horse by walking over the Rimutakas to get it.
1871 ex husband William was killed at Nelson Creek, Greymouth, in a mining accident, on 9 Sep 1871, by falling from a 150 foot flume. Burial records have him as 30 which has to be incorrect, which would make him marrying at age 9. BDM has his age as 35. Family members say he was 42
c1857 Christina next lived with Isaac Howell & had 9 children (1858 to 1871).
1864 Christina's sister Mary Anne Gilbert, married Isaac's brother William Bentinck Howell
1882 Christina married Isaac on 25 May 1882.

Husband William died in a riding accident in 1837 and Douglas emigrated to NZ, Dec 1840, on the 'Olympus' with her four remaining sons and a daughter, They arrived in Wellington 20 April 1841 and Douglas established herself as a midwife and general nurse in Wellington. In her later years Douglas McKain lived among her family in Hawke's Bay. The extended McKain family were prominent members of the early Napier community. Two of Douglas McKain's married daughters, Mary Ann McCarthy and Julia Torr, had followed her to New Zealand with their husbands in 1842, and both eventually settled in Hawke's Bay. Her daughter Robina, who had travelled with her to New Zealand, settled with her husband, William Villers, at The Spit (Westshore) in 1853. Joseph Torr and William Villers ran a schooner between Napier and Wellington, trading in pork, wheat and dressed flax. James Buchanan McKain and his wife, Susannah McKain, also settled at The Spit, where they ran the first accommodation house and licensed premises in Napier, and operated a postal service. By 1860 Douglas McKain, Julia and Joseph Torr, and Mary Ann and John McCarthy were all established in Eskdale, north of Napier, where the Torrs' home, Petane Grange, became a showplace. Robina and William Villers settled over the hill, at Petane (Bay View). Douglas McKain, now in her 70s, lived with each of her children in turn, paying £10 per annum board and lodging.

INQUEST - An emergency inquest was held on the 9th inst., before T. Hitchings, Esq., coroner and a jury, at the Petane Hotel, upon a body that had been washed down the Petane river by the late floods. The evidence disclosed the painful fact that this was the body of one of Rangihiroa's party, killed in action on the 12th October last - the grave in which the dead were interred having been so acted upon by the water during the late freshes as to be now part of the bed of the river. The following was the evidence adduced:-
Frederick Torr, being sworn, deposed:- I am the son of Mr Joseph Torr, residing at Light Willows, Petane. On Friday last, the 7th inst., about 3 o'clock pm., I saw the body of a man lying on the banks of the river amongst the rubbish and covered with mud. I then went home and told my father who went to see it. I though it one of the Maori who were buried near Capt. Carr's after the fight last October.
Joseph Torr, sworn, deposed:- I am a settler residing at Petane. In consequence of information received from my son, I went to the banks of the river and saw a body of what I consider to be a maori. The body was in a very advanced state of decomposition and presenting the appearance of having been buried some months. I have no doubt that it was one of the native Hau Haus who were buried last October, near Capt. Carr's/ Upon examination of the body there appears a bullet wound on the left side of the spine, in the loins and another in the front of the stomach.
William Villers(jnr) sworn, deposed:- I keep the Petane Hotel. On Wednesday last I visited the spot where the dead Hau Haus were buried. I saw that the spot where they were buried was covered with water, forming a part of the bed of the river. The river was very high from the recent rain and bringing down large logs of timber. It is my opinion the whole of the bodies were washed away.
The jury returned the following as their verdict:- "We are of opinion that deceased, an aboriginal native, died from gun shot wounds received in action on the 12th October last and that his body has been washed away from the burial place in consequence of the recent flood"
With reference to this painful affair, we learn that the coroner has given authority for the immediate re-interment of any other bodies that may be found - bearing evidence, upon a competent survey by three or four householders, of having been buried under similar circumstances to the one found

Daily Telegraph, 30 Jan 1884
A dinner was given last evening at Mr William Villers Petane Hotel by Mr Boyd, who, having sold out, is about visiting the old country. About twenty-five settlers put in an appearance. After dinner speeches, songs and occasional dancing were indulged in. Altogether a very enjoyable evening was spent. The table was everything that could be desired and was tastefully laid out, the large vases, with enormous bouquets of beautifully arranged flowers, being particularly noticeable. It certainly reflects great credit on Mr Villers for the manner in which he succeeded in placing such a magnificent spread before those assembled

Daily Telegraph, 17 May 1887
A very large number of our readers will learn with much regret that Mr William Villers,(jnr) who had been dangerously ill for some weeks past, died at 7am this morning. Although taking no active part in public matters, Mr Villers was certainly a public man, not only from the keen interest he took in politics, but from his sympathy with all movements having for their object the social well-being and happiness of the people. The news will be read with very great regret, the deceased having been in life a sterling and generous-hearted man, ever ready to do a good turn to anyone in difficulty of any kind and willing to do all in his power to promote the happiness of all around him. His private benevolence was large and his liberality was only bounded by his power to give. Mr Villers was a native of New Zealand, being born in Wellington and he has died at the comparatively early age of 55 years. By his death Petane sustains a loss that can never be filled as he filled it. "Old Bill Villers" as his friends always called him, was one of Hawkes's Bay's identities and he will be much missed. The funeral will take place in the Petane cemetery ... The body of the late Mr William Villers was interred yesterday in the Petane cemetery, in the presence of a numerous assemblage of friends of the deceased, many of whom journeyed from Napier to pay the last tribute of respect to a highly respected settler and warm friend. The funeral service was conducted by the Bishop of Waiapu and the Rev. W. Welsh

Important Sale Of Suburban Lands. Banner and Liddle, in conjunction with Messrs Baker and Tabuteau, have been instructed by the Executor in the Estate of the late William Villers(jnr) to sell by auction the land immediately adjoining the Hotel and Store, subdivided into 167 suitable Building Allotments varying from 1/4 acre to 26 acres each. Many of these sections have frontages to the river where good boating and bathing are obtainable and others are on the rise of the hill, giving magnificent views of the surrounding country, while all are eminently suitable for suburban residences and being within easy reach of Napier by coach, offer exceptional inducements to purchasers, as Petane is sure in a little time to become the principal suburb of Napier. The land has a long frontage to the main road from Napier to Taupo and the Hot Lake district.

William James Ward starved to death, Wellington 1886

William James Ward was from (not necessarily born in) Charleston, an old goldmining town on the West Coast of the South Island, 30km south of Westport.
His death notice in the papers said he was 49. BDM has 48. The inquest into his death notes that he was an elderly man probably about 60 with grey hair, whiskers and moustache ... a hard life will do that to a person and assuming his wife put the death notice in the paper we will go with that age.

William married Sarah Ann Aldridge
WARD - ALDRIDGE 2 Oct 1875, William James Ward, Charleston, to Sarah Ann (1850-1911?), daughter of Job Aldridge of Nelson. Sarah was a daughter of Job Aldridge (1816-1890), from Berkshire, died Nelson and Hannah Belcher (1820-1897)

At his death in Wellington, James had eight young children to feed ..
Evening Post, 24 Sep 1886
WARD - On 21st September, William James Ward, aged 49 years. Home, Charleston and Nelson papers please copy

* The body which was found yesterday amongst the rocks at Island Bay was brought to the Morgue by Constable Stewart in the afternoon to await identification. It is that of an elderly man, apparently about 60 years of age and belonging to the labouring class, with grey hair, whishers, and moustache, about 5ft 6in in height and of medium build. The clothing consists of a brown tweed coat, clean white moleskin trousers, dark tweed vest, soft felt hat and lace-up boots. Deceased was seen at 11am passing the Island Bay Hotel, when he asked for matches, which were supplied by the trainer Mr J. Lunn. He then walked away in the direction of the beach and nothing further was seen or heard of him until about 1 o'clock. when the body was found by two men named Harry Townsend and George Morley about midway between the hotel and the cave of the celebrated hermit. It was some distance above high-water mark and the flesh was still warm. In one of the pockets a slip of paper was found, which bore the words, "Tired and worn out with anxiety" and the signature of "William Ward" Beyond this fact, there does not appear to be anything to suggest the suspicion that the unfortunate man committed suicide. An inquest will be held at the Morgue tomorrow morning and in the meantime Dr Hutchinson will make a post moriem examination of the body.
The remains have been identified during the day as those of a labouring man named William Ward, who has lived at 26 Cambridge-road. For some time past he had been out of employment and had consequently been very despondent. yesterday morning he left his home and did not return, but was seen at Newtown during the forenoon by his sister-in-law, Mrs Skelly. Deceased leaves a widow and wight children to mourn his demise. The post mortem examination was made by Dr Hutchison this morning and we understand that no symptoms of poisoning were detected, though there was evidence of a condition of body bordering upon starvation. The stomach has been deposited with Dr Skey, Colonial Analyst, for analysis.

* Seldom has a sadder case come under our notice than that of the unfortunate man William Ward, upon whose remains an inquest was held yesterday and who is declared to have died from starvation. Penniless and unable to obtain employment, he deliberately denied himself the necessaries of like in order that there might be some food for his children. The whole family appear to have been reduced to the sorest straits, yet to have resigned themselves to death by slow starvation, rather than ask for help from anyone. While it is impossible to help admiring the father's martyr-like heroism and respecting the reluctance on the part of both parents to become objects of charity, one cannot help feeling that the sentiment was a morbid one and that to this morbid sentiment a valuable life has been sacrificed. The unfortunate man had only to let his sad circumstances be known to receive prompt help from private and public sources. The warm-hearted generosity of the people of Wellington in such cases of destitution is so well-known that we are certain the merest intimation of so sore a case of need would have elicited instant and ample aid. While we deeply deplore the melancholy sacrifice of poor William Ward's life, we may point out that his widow and children for whom he died have still to be relieved and we do not doubt that they will be most generously cared for.

* A pitiful story of evil fortunes, suffering, semi-starvation and death, comes from Wellington. William Ward, a man with a wife and family of eight young children, lived in Cambridge Road. Ward had been out of employment and his family were suffering from want of food. Ward, in a half famished state, walked out to Island Bay, got to some distance from the hotel and then lay down on the rocks and died, leaving a written paper saying "I am worn out by anxiety and privation" Now that the man is dead, Wellington society is shocked and efforts are being made to help the starving children. But the hard, ugly fact remains, that a sober, decent and industrious man, with a wife and eight young children to support, may struggle vainly to make a living in Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand and having utterly failed, may lie down and die of starvation without a single hand being held out to his aid

* An inquest on the body of William James Ward, who was found dead at Island Bay on Monday, was held at the morgue yesterday morning. Mr George Tabor was chosen foreman of the jury. Dr Hutchinson stated that the body was free from all traces of external injury and was in perfect preservation. On examining the stomach and the intestines he had found them quite empty, excepting of a small quantity of liquid. The organs of the body were quite healthy. From the appearance of the body he believed that had been caused by continual starvation and mental distress. The contents of deceased's stomach had been analysed by Mr Skey, who found no poison whatever in it. Henry Townsend gave evidence as to finding the body. Deceased's wife stated that her husband went out shortly after 8 o'clock on Monday morning without saying where he was going. Before starting he had a small piece of scone and a cup of tea. Being in indigent circumstances they were unable to procure other food. Deceased had been our of work for over two months, although he had repeatedly tried to get employment, but without success. Witness did not know till yesterday (Monday) that they would have received assistance if they had applied to the Benevolent Society. The Coroner (Dr Johnston) said it was one of the most painful cases that had ever come before him. Apparently, the deceased was one of those honest, sober men who were too proud to beg. The jury returned a verdict of death caused by want of sufficient nourishment.

* The widow and family of the late William James Ward, who was found dead on the Island Bay beach on Monday afternoon last, have been left utterly destitute. In fact they had been destitute for two months before the head of the family dropped down and died from sheer exhaustion, caused by want of nourishment. "I cannot steal; to beg I am ashamed" might be written as a truthful epitaph over the grave of Ward. His high-strung sensitiveness led him to starve to death rather than ask for bread; and what little he could obtain he deprived himself of in order that his wife and children might keep body and soul together. The evidence taken at the inquest, is a melancholy record of how a man may starve while food could have been procured by the mere asking. However, the eight children - the eldest not eleven years of age, the youngest but four months - and the widow had even commenced to break up her bedstead a few days ago for firing, being without the means of purchasing any. Her parents reside in Nelson and we are informed that if she could get there with her family she would find assistance and might be enabled to earn a living for herself and children.

* It has been hinted that there is a possibility that the relatives of the man named Ward, who died of starvation at Wellington recently, may have some legal interest in the Town Acre and Masterton Small Farm Block, section 29, containing 40 acres, which was originally purchased by a man of the same name. The crown grant in the name of Ward has been lying unclaimed at the land office, Wellington, between twenty and thirty years.

* Sir, I notice a great deal is being written about the "shame and the disgrace" of a man being allowed to die in this prosperous city of ours of sheer starvation. I would like people to take into consideration these few items. Charitable aid is given by the Benevolent Institute, which is supported by voluntary contributions, subsidised £ for £ by the Government. Now, every man has to pay duty to Government indirectly, in the food he takes or the clothes he wears so that he is really entitled to aid in the event of sickness or lack of work. Again, a writer cries shame on the Relieving Officer for not finding out that poor Ward was so utterly destitute. The only way I can see in which this could have been discovered would have been for the Relieving Officer to have made a house to house visit, asking if the occupants were in need of "benevolent aid;" rather a thankless task, I fancy. If a man has that wrong-headed pride which forbids him to seek relief from that source to which he is fairly entitled to look for it, and thereby starves himself to death (to say nothing of the misery of his family), I contend that he is more to be blamed than pitied

* A concert and dance in aid of the Ward family is to be held in the Drillshed on Friday night. It is to be under the patronage of the officers and members of the Wellington garrison and will, no doubt, seeing that it is for such a deserving object, be well attended.

* The Evening Post collected subscriptions in aid of the family. By the end of the month (Sep 1886) they already had £34 18s (Sep 2017 equivalent of around $6,750)

William James Ward and Sarah Ann Aldridge had 8 children. These are the children I have to date. Your help verifying them and any other info on William would be appreciated
