Jean & Nellie CAREY, sisters in PATEA

A little on the lives of two Taranaki sisters
anything in italics is my addition to source

* Jean Elizabeth Carey (1914-1986)
* Selma Ellen 'Nellie' Carey (1918-2009)

* parents Charles Henry Carey (1890-1974) & Annie Elizabeth Dowthwaite (1887-1980)
* paternal grandparents Matthew Carey (1861-1948) & Jane Elizabeth O'Neill (1862-1941)
note granddad Matthew was an Undertaker in Patea until 1931. Alfred Arnold Carey (1911-1988) took over in 1932 - he was also a builder
* maternal grandparents Henry Dowthwaite (1854-1942) & Emma Jane Lilly (1859-1931)

Jean was born 16 Feb 1914
.. A week before her first birthday Jean was struck down with polio. There followed years of treatment in hospital at Trentham, where the medical technology of the day did its feeble best. But the scourge of polio left Jean with one leg 1½ inches shorter than the other. She did not walk until she was five and then with the aid of a heavy boot and calliper to the thigh. But her glowing spirit was already apparent. She was chosen during a later stay at the hospital, to present a bouquet to Lady Alice Fergusson, wife of the Governor-General, who was paying a visit.
Jean did most of her schooling in Patea. She learnt piano from her aunt 'Gert' Carey who was a double diploma holder (Doreen Louisa Gertrude 'Gert' Edwards, A.T.C.L., L.T.C.L4, married Alfred Arnold Carey) and Jean herself became an Associate of the Trinity College of Music.
Jean was a cheerful, willing and positive woman whose disability was not a factor in the way she lived her life, one of usefulness and service to others. She managed a Patea clothing factory for a time, was a leader of the Girl Guides, organist at St George's Anglican Church for many years and took her share in other community activities. She became an apprentice tailor with Jack Dempsey at his shop in Egmont Street and then moved to Wellington ..more at her link

St George's Church, Patea, was beautifully decorated last Saturday afternoon, June 15th, when Jean Elizabeth, elder daughter of Mr and Mrs Charles Carey, Patea, was married to Milton Kingston, third son of Mr and Mrs T. J. Fleet, Lower Hutt
The service was fully choral as a compliment to the bride, who was a member of the choir. The organist was Mrs A. Carey ('Gert', her aunty & music teacher) and the officiating minister the Rev W. H. Walton.
The bride, who was escorted by her father, looked charming in a dainty frock of ivory needle-run lace and satin. The skirt formed a point in the centre of the bodice in front and fell in soft folds to ivory velvet shoes. The V-neck was edged with tiny satin pleating and the long sleeves, ending in points over the hands, were finished with the same pleating. At the waistline in the back was a true lover's knot of pleated satin, which was inlet into the lace, the ends reaching to the long train. From a dainty orange blossom tiara fell a beautiful hand-embroidered tulle veil which formed a second train. Her bouquet was of chrysanthemums, carnations, helibore and maidenhair fern.
In attendance were Mrs G. Cosford (sister Nellie), sister of the bride and Miss B. Thomason, Cambridge, who were frocked alike in reseda green georgette ankle-length frocks. The skirts came to a point in the centre of the bodices in front. Tiny self buttons trimmed the back and finished at the belt. An unusual note was introduced in the shirred yolks, shirred puffed sleeves and shirred hemlines, forming a scalloped effect. Their smart hats were in stiffened reseda green net, trimmed with scarlet velvet ribbon and flowers. Their shoes were also scarlet and they carried beautiful bouquets of scarlet flowers and berries.
Little Cherry Campbell, Patea, cousin of the bride, was a picture in a sweet ankle-length frock of green sprigged organdie with a scarlet velvet sash and a tiny scarlet bow trimmed the neck. A halo of scarlet rosebuds was also worn and she carried a basket of scarlet flowers. Her scarlet shoes completed a dainty picture.
The bridegroom was supported by Messrs K. Fleet (Milton's brother Kenneth Thomas James Fleet 1907-1985), Wellington and B. Minton, Patea. Messrs M. Carey (Jean's brother Matthew Henry Carey 1913-1984) and R. Burgess, Patea, were ushers.
During the service Mrs G. Corbett sang the solo "Just For To-day". The reception was held in the Town Hall supper-room, which was tastefully decorated with scarlet flowers and berries
Mrs Carey (Jean's mum Annie) received the guests attired in a smart fuchsia velvet frock, musquash fur coat and matching toque. Her bouquet was of helibores and violets. The bridegroom's mother (Milton's mum Mary) chose a bottle-green ensemble with matching hat and accessories. Her bouquet was of lavender flowers and maidenhair fern.
When Mr and Mrs Fleet left by car for the north, the latter wore a smart prunella quilted suit under a fur coat. Her hat and accessories were to match. Mr and Mrs Fleet's future home will be in Patea

In 1943 Milton was called for service in WWI. They were then living in Seaview Road, Lower Hutt. He served as Temporary Lance Corporal 70104, 3rd NZ Division, Second NZEF. Jean moved back to Victoria St., Patea while he was overseas

* Milton died 18 July 1986 in Waitotara, South Taranaki, aged 74.
Jean died 28 Sep 1986 at Wanganui only two months later. Some said she died of a broken heart. Milton and Jean are buried Plot 4851, Patea, RSA. Her sister Nellie died 23 years later, thereby being the last of the Careys of Patea (not Jean, as her top link says)

The back was finished to the waist with tiny crystal buttons. Her full length court train was edged with silver sprays. Long sleeves ended in a point over her hands and from a halo of orange blossoms sprinkled with silver, fell a long tulle veil which was hand embroidered in roses. Silver glitter shoes completed her toilette. A beautiful shower bouquet of white roses, water-lilies, carnations and gypsophila was carried.
She was attended by bridesmaids, her sister Miss Jean Carey (chief), and Miss Margaret Naismith, who were dressed alike in dainty frocks of rosebud pink Swiss satin embroidered organza.

William Evetts
Evening Post, 10 July 1933
It is sixty years since Mr. and Mrs. William Evetts, of New Plymouth, were married in Wellington (states the 'Taranaki Herald'). Now, at the respective ages of 82 and 80 years, both are still hale and hearty. A family gathering was held during the weekend in honour of the auspicious occasion of the couple’s diamond wedding. Both Mr and Mrs Evetts (Martha Carvell in those days) were born in the little village of Southam, Warwickshire, England. They grew up together, being boy and girl sweethearts. Mr Evetts was in the employ of the great English engineering firm of Brogdens, with whom Sir Julius Vogel, then Premier of New Zealand, contracted for the construction of the Dominion’s railways. Mr Evetts came out to New Zealand in the ship Halcione, which arrived at Wellington on July 29, 1872. On the same vessel came Miss Carvell, the couple being married about a year after their arrival in New Zealand. There were 13 children of the marriage, of whom nine are still living. These are: Mrs R. Gardner (New Plymouth), Mrs W. Horne (New Plymouth), Mrs D. Williams (Rahotu), Mrs A. Standring (New Plymouth), Mrs J. Harnett (New Plymouth), Messrs Frank Evetts (New Plymouth), Albert 'Mick' (New Plymouth), Carvell (Okaiawa), Harold (New Plymouth). There are 15 grandchildren and seven great-grand children. A grandson and great granddaughter are resident in Suva

Evening Post, 12 April 1877 PAINFUL ACCIDENT - A most painful accident occurred at Mr Tonks' hay and corn store, Manners-street, this morning to a man named Philip Fauvel. It appears that it was Fauvel's duty to hoist bales of hay, & c., from the basement of the store to the first floor by means of a rope and pulleys. He was assisted in this work by a steam engine, round one of the shafts of which the rope was fixed. While he was in the act of hoisting a truss of hay about 11 o'clock this morning, the rope got twisted by some means and Fauvel seemed to lose his presence of mind, for, instead of letting the rope go, he was whirled round and round several times. He was unable, after he had been taken round once, to get free from the rope, which twisted round his arms. One of his fellow workmen, who witnessed the occurrence stopped the engine as quickly as possible, but before that was done Fauvel had sustained some very serious injuries. Dr Harding was immediately sent for and on his arrival he found that the unfortunate man's forearm was broken and crushed above the elbow. Two of the fingers of his left hand were torn off a the first joint and his breast was injured. Dr Harding, having attended to the immediate wants of the man, advised that he should be sent to the Hospital. Fauvel was conveyed to that institution in an express.

Wairarapa Age, 11 April 1911 KAIPARORO - Last week a farewell social was tendered to Mr P. Fauvel, who has been a resident of the district for the past twenty years.

It is Mr Fauvel's intention to re-visit his native home in Jersey shortly
