LIST of VICTIMS - 1931 NAPIER 7.8 earthquake

On Tuesday morning the 3rd February 1931 at 10.47am the ground in the Hawkes Bay region heaved sharply upward and swayed. A deceptive half-minute pause was followed by a downward motion and violent shaking and rocking
... In all the 7.8 quake spanned two and a half minutes

- the sea floor off the curving sweep of Hawkes Bay was lifted 2.7 metres and large boats were left high and dry as 2200 hectares of tidal flats in Ahuriri Lagoon were raised to sea level

As buildings began to disintegrate many people fled outdoors into a lethal rain of chunks from ornate facades, parapets and cornices. Buildings swayed violently and their walls bulged and collapsed into the streets in avalanches of brick and masonry that crushed vehicles and people. Roofs caved in on buildings that had large open internal areas, such as churches, libraries and theatres. In some buildings the internal floors pulled free of the swaying walls, collapsing inward in a jumble of girders, wood and plaster

* as at 8 June 2016 a couple of links have had to be removed as they were no longer active - very disappointing and annoying

Death-Roll increases
, 169 names to date
* NZ Herald, 9 Feb 1931
Death Roll From Napier

* 11,000 evacuated

In Napier, the recently built Nurses Home collapsed, killing clerical staff and off-duty nurses who were sleeping. In Hastings at least 50 people were in Roachs department store when it collapsed (it is now Westpoint Plaza); 17 died and many were seriously injured. The entire front of the five-storey Grand Hotel in Hastings crumbled into Heretaunga Street, claiming eight lives. Fifteen died at the Park Island Old Mens Home near Taradale, but a 91-year-old man was pulled alive from the rubble three days later.

THE NAPIER EARTHQUAKE of 1931 with photos

Napier 1931 Earthquake another list of names some with notes & bios. Some of the bios below were taken from this site

The official death toll was 256 people who died in the magnitude 7.8
earthquake but there are 258 names on the memorial, and this unofficial number is likely to be correct.
- 161 in Napier
- 93 in Hastings
- 2 in Wairoa
Many thousands more required medical treatment.

I have taken names from a number of different sites on the web (some from links at the above sites) - it seems that every site visited has a different list of names, so I have compiled a list containing all the names found and will, with your help, research and verify and add if required. Explosives were used to make a hole in the cemetery big enough to inter 54 coffins in the first burial service. The aim is to add Plot numbers as they become available

This is not a complete list - and may not ever be ...

The * at the front of a name means they are buried in a mass grave in Hastings and their name is on the memorial.
The memorial area contains the remains of 100 people who perished in the Hawke's Bay Earthquake of 3 February 1931. The tablets on the memorial record the names of 86 of those interred in the mass grave plus the names of 23 others buried elsewhere in the cemetery.

EVENING POST 11 November 1875
THIS DAY (before J.C. Crawford, Esq., R.M.)
A cross-action for assault between two old men, name Charles Clapham and Hamilton James Wiley created a good deal of amusement. It was complicated by the fact that both parties, and all their witnesses but one, were deaf. Mr Buckley appeared for Wiley.
According to Clapham's account, he was collecting his cows, which had strayed on Wiley's land, when the latter rushed at him, seized him by the throat, smacked his face to that extent that it was all the colours of the rainbow, and finally kicked him behind.
On this, witness said that if Wiley did that any more he should really be quite angry with him, and picked up a stick to defend himself, but he never struck Wiley with it; oh no, not he; he knew himself better
Wiley's story differed from that of his foe in a most remarkable manner. His view of the affair was that when Clapham was driving away the cows, he (witness) told him not to take away cattle without giving him notice. On this Clapham hit him on the head with a crooked stick, and afterwards fetched a big club (produced in Court) and struck him on the back with it. On this he did take Clapham by the collar and clap his ears for him.
Mrs Wiley, who was as deaf as her husband and his enemy, corroborated his statement and flourished the club about in a very striking manner, to illustrate Clapham's iniquities.
On being asked if he had any question to put, the defendant Clapham replied, "It's all false, villainous false!"
An independent witness was called. On his being sworn, the crier (who hitherto had been acting as an interpreter, and had become exceedingly hoarse under the vocal exertion required) asked him if he were deaf too, but the witness indignantly responded, "No!" in a stentorian voice, which frightened the whole Court into fits. He entirely confirmed the Wiley's tale. His worship dismissed the charge against Wiley and fined Clapham 10s and costs, with the alternative of 48 hours imprisonment, remarking that probably there would be fewer rows in that neighbourhood if the people were not so singularly dear and therefore apt to mistake one another's words.

NZ TRUTH 3 August 1907 (son)
Ham Wiley, of Carterton, departed for Logan City, Utah, three months ago, after embracing the Mormon faith. Ham took his family with him, which is a matter that may not bear complete investigation, for, however pleasant polygamy may be, from the point of view of the man, there are some girls who have a natural objection to sharing their husband's affections with another hussy. It must be confessed, however, that Ham's daughter Lizzie doesn't look forward to the future with anything like dread, judging by a letter written by her to a Dalefield resident. The steamer trip appears to have been excellent. The party was accompanied by six elders and four more elders, and a native sister came aboard at Samoa. At Honolulu another contingent joined the steamer, when the Mormon party totalled twelve elders and eleven saints. The letter didn't mention the division of the sexes, unless the saints are girls, but the assumption is that the elders were sinners. Lizzie finds Logan City quite a nice place, and hopes the Lord will gather in her Dalefield friend to Zion
