Having leased a section of forty-four acres, he cleared the bush and erected a comfortable dwelling, which was specially notable by its tastefully laid out garden in front with well kept ornamental trees and pretty box borders.

JOHN CUDBY emigrated on the 'Thomas Sparks' at the age of 13, leaving London on 27 November 1842 and arriving in Port Nicholson (Wellington) on 31 January 1843.
He was, at the time, the servant of the Honourable Henry William Petre and his wife Eleanor (their son Frank William PETRE was the architect for St Joseph's Cathedral)

John lost an arm when his gun accidentally exploded

He was a teenager when he was involved in the fight at Boulcott's farm and is mentioned in "The New Zealand Wars: A History of he Maori Campaigns and the Pioneering Period. Volume 1: 1845-1864
- from which I have taken the following:
... A little later that morning John Cudby, then a youth of seventeen, who was engaged in carting commissariat from Wellington to the troops at Boulcott`s Farm (for Mr. W. B. Rhodes, the contractor for supplying rations), harnessed up in the yard of the Aglionby Arms, Burcham`s Hotel, near the bridge stockade, and drove out into the bush for the front, unaware of the fight which had just been waged a short two miles away.
In this duty it was the practice of Cudby and the other carters to bring out their loads along the beach road as far as Burcham's in the afternoon, stay there that night, and go on to Boulcott's Farm on the Taita in the morning. Cudby had previously had the protection of an escort of fifteen men under a non-commissioned officer, but, to use his own words, the poor fellows at the stockade were worked to death, and so I said I`d do without them in the future.
His sole companion henceforth was a clerk, the military issuer.
A double-barrel gun loaded with slugs was carried in the cart, but it never became necessary to use it. (This gun was the means of depriving Cudby of his left arm a few months later in Wellington; one of the barrels accidentally exploded, the charge shattering the lad`s hand and necessitating amputation of the arm at the elbow.)
The carter and his companion were in the middle of the bush, jolting over the boggy corduroy patches of road, when they were met by two men in a cart driving furiously from the camp. One of them shouted: Go back boy, go back! The Maoris (sic) have attacked the camp!
But Cudby did not turn his team. I dursen`t go back, he cried in his broad English dialect, I dursen`t go back; I`ve got the rations to deliver.

The two carters whipped up their horse and hurried on toward Fort Richmond, while Cudby, in fear every moment of receiving a volley from ambush in the dark timber that almost overhung him, but resolved to fulfil his duty, drove on to Boulcott`s. When he arrived at the camp he saw laid out in the barn six dead bodies, the soldiers who had fallen; one of them was Bugler Allen, whom he knew. It was Cudby who, later in the day, took the bodies in his cart to a spot on the river-bank where they were temporarily buried a place since washed away by floods.

JOHN CUDBY married JANE NICOL/NICHOL
- they had 9 children
* 1851 - 1923 James Cudby
* 1854 - 1908 William Cudby
* 1856 - 1942 Charles Cudby
- Charles married Emma McIntosh in Lower Hutt 1882
- daughter of John McIntosh of Falkirk Scotland and Arabella Firth of Mirfield Leeds
* 1858 - 1941 Emma Frances Cudby

Looking for Hotel Owners /Proprietors of Wellington, New Zealand before 1900

One of the 'priorities', it seems, of the early settler to Wellington, New Zealand was to establish drinking establishments to quench the thirst of the weary traveller

Before 1900, considering the *population of Wellington pre 1900, there were MANY hotels, rooming house, doss houses etc

*During the last half of the 19th century Wellington grew rapidly.
In 1867 there were 7,460 residents.
By 1899 Wellington became a city with a population of 49,344.

I would like to reference these hotels with owners from the settlers of Wellington pre 1900

I would like you to help build the page - do you know of anyone who had one of the hotels below ? - An ancestor perhaps?
Do you know of other hotels pre 1900 Wellington not on the list ?
They would have changed hands a number of times, maybe you can add other proprietors ...

WELLINGTON NZ HOTELS - pre 1900

Some of the owners so far are highlighted below

Who was Emma May Trezise ? - married Charles Bould 1915, Wellington NZ

Charles William Hensman BOULD was born in 1873.
He was a son of Thomas Bould and Georgina Saunders.

He served in the Boer War and in WWI.

He had been married for just 3 months when he was killed in action on the Somme, France

He married Emma May Trezise 28th December 1915 in St Marks Church Wellington.

Emma remarried to William Russell

Who was Emma Trezise?
