GOTTFRIED LINDAUER is buried in Woodville Cemetery New Zealand

Gottfried Lindauer, also known as Gottfried or by his Czech name, Bohumr Lindauer (5 January 1839 13 June 1926) was a Czech and later a New Zealand artist famous for his portraits including that of the Maori.
Despite his German sounding surname, he was ethnically Czech.

Many prominent Maori chiefs commissioned his work, which accurately records their facial tattoos, clothing, ornaments and weapons.

The other artist known for these portraits was Charles Frederick Goldie, OBE (18701947)

Gottried Lindauer arrived in New Zealand in 1873.
A professional artist, he travelled throughout the country as a protege of Henry Partridge, an Auckland businessman, who exhibited Lindauer's portraits of prominent Maori and members of early Colonial families.
Lindauer frequently painted more than one version of a portrait, and occasionally worked from photographs.
His most famous painting is perhaps Ana Rupene and Child - see link below to buy this print ...

He is buried in the
OLD GORGE CEMETERY - WOODVILLE

You can see some of his paintings on the Auckland Art Gallery site:

A very interesting look at his portraits history with some of his paintings is on this site:

Stanislaus James, Mary Mechtilde and other MORAN siblings - Wellington, New Zealand late 1800s

I am looking to complete this branch of the JAMES MORAN family in New Zealand.

James Moran, surveyor, formerly Auckland then Wellington.
His wife - no name or any other info - always just referred to as Mrs Moran at Papers Past.
James died in 1898 at age 78 so guessed his birthdate as 1820 but would like verification on all the dates.

I have for their children AND this is in any order because of lack of birth dates:
- James Patrick Moran married Ellen Teresa O'Sullivan
- Stanislaus James Moran - graduated from the Victoria University in 1905 with a LL.B degree after spending 3 years at St. Patrick's College in Wellington. He married Alice May Cotter (who was previously married to Edward George Harris in Masterton) - Stanislaus died in 1953, no age, buried in Masterton.
- Kathleen J. Moran married Patrick J. Nolan who was born in 1866 son of Mr Mathew Nolan, and was the sub-editor for the New Zealand Times... They moved to Australia
- Mary Mechtilde Moran married Henry James Marsh in 1897.
Henry died 15 months later from consumption at the age of 27
- Julia Moran who was a noted violinist in New Zealand and Australia
- Agnes Moran MAYBE died June 1902 at the age of 24, no other info
- Teresa Moran married George Craig in 1901. He worked for the CUstoms Department
- Annie Moran - no info
- Ida Moran - nothing known
- Helen A. Moran married Peter McGregor in October 1902.
She died 18 months later in Hunterville from heart disease aged 35
- Florence B. Moran died in November 1905 aged 22 so was born about 1883.

Can you tell me if this was all the children or if indeed they were all their children

NEWSPAPER REPORTS
- anything in (italics) is my addition -
Manawatu Times, Volume X, Issue 1287, 5 September 1884
Per Press Association, Wellington
... Information was received at daylight this morning that the ship Lastingham, from London to Wellington, has been wrecked at Jackson's Head, Cook Strait.
The Lastingham was a ship of 1085 tons, of the Shaw-Saville line, and was commanded by Alex. MORRISON. The catastrophe happened while the vessel was running through the straits during the heavy N.W. gale on Monday night. The vessel struck the land at Jackon's Head and a terrific sea was running. The captain, his wife, five passengers, and eleven of the crew were washed away from the wreck and drowned. The remainder of the crew including the 1st and 2nd officers reached main land and were yesterday picked up by the ketch Anges, which was passing through the Straits and brought on here. The vessel has gone to pieces.
Beyond the captain and wife the names of those drowned are not yeat ascertained
THE CHIEF OFFICER'S STORY
The following are particulars of the wreck:- The chief officer. Mr NEALE, supplies the following particulars:-
... The Lastingham sighted the Coast of New Zealand about 8 o'clock on Monday morning last and in a little over twelve hours afterwards was a total wreck, almost on the spot where the steamer Rangitoto was lost (30 Nov 1873, no loss of life). Heavy weather prevailed at the time and continued till the vessel was driven ashore. The gale was of terrific force, and rain fell heavily for some hours previous to accident and land was not visible for more than a mile ahead. Great efforts were made by the officers and crew to prevent the vessel going ashore. At ten p.m. she went ashore and became a total wreck in less than two hours.
The crew and passengers endeavoured to save themselves in various ways, some of them plunging into the boiling sea and striking out for the shore. Others sprang from the vessel's side on to rocks in the vicinity, while others arrempted to float ashore on anything that would bear their weight.
The scene was one of indescribable confusion, wind howling, rain falling, people rushing about shouting and screeching, and the sea breaking over the ship's side.
About midnight a muster of the survivors was made when it was ascertained that 18 were missing and no doubt drowned, the captain and wife and the whole of the passengers (five in number) being among the number.
A miserable night was spent and on Tuesday efforcts were made to find a habitation within distance of the shore but without success. Three of the men, CHALMERS, WOOD, and ALFREY, continued on their journey in hopes of discovering inhabitants and were not seen afterwards by those of the survivors who are now in Wellington.
It is difficult to say whether they will be found alive.
The survivors - fourteen in number, endured great privation while in the neighborhood of Jackson's head, owing to their not having saved anything. The captain endeavored to save the log books, ship's papers, etc, but as he lost his life in attempting to reach the shore with his wife it is not likely those articles will ever be recovered. The only articles of food which came ashore were 4lbs of pickled pork and two packages of oatmeal and cornflour. They stopped their hunger by gnawing the raw meal and drinking an oatmeal mixture, fresh water being found close to the wreck. The men had to run up and down the beach to keep up the circulation. Wednesday was fine and their clothes were laid out to dry and the survivors obtained much needed rest, having been without sleep for 36 hours. Each night the men huddled together under rocks to keep themselves warm and on Thursday night they discovered a small vessel passing. A piece of blanket which had come ashore was fixed to a pole and moved to and fro. The signal was observed. and a boat being lowered. the survivors were soon on board the ketch, which proved to be the Anges from Pelorus Sound to Kaiapoi, with timber. Captain Jensen of the ketch, attended to the wants of the shipwrecked mariners, and then bore for Wellington.
At the time of rescue the men had almost given up hope of being rescued, as on Tuesday and Wednesday, no less than five steamers were seen passing close to land, and although signals were made none on board seem to have noticed them. However, no effort was made to rescue them.
When they were taken on board they were thoroughly exhausted. The chief officer is of opinion that had they to stop another night on the coast some of the party would have succumbed to the privations.
Those saved are:
(all seamen)
* John NEALE, chief officer
* John BARTON, second mate
* DIDDLE, steward
* ROBERTSON, carpenter
* GROVES
* DONBAIRE
* CHAMBERS
* MUNRO
* DONALDSON
* ADERY
the apprentices are:
* THOMAS
* FRYER

The whole of the passengers were drowned.
Their names were, Messrs:
* BURRELL
* DAVIS
* MEAKIN
* McGINN
* NAISH
None of them were married men and it is understood they have never been in New Zealand

The names of the officers and men drowned were:
* Alex MORRISON, master, aged about 60 years of age, and his wife, who usually accompanied him on all his voyages
* Henry GROVES, third officer
* Peter McQUIRE, cook
* John MURRAY, sailmaker
* BARNARD
* LAMBERT
* GROUBAN
* MATHEWS
* WATSON
all seamen and SHARP & PEARCE, two of the complement of four boys, which the ship carried

The wreck of the Lastingham has cast a gloom over the city and flags are lowered half mast as a mark of respect to those who perished.
Instructions have been issued to send a steamer from Picton to proceed to the scene of the catastrophe and institute a search for three of the survivors who were hunting for a habitation and could not be found when the others were rescued.
A subscriptions was started this morning in aid of the survivors and 36 handed to chief officer to provide clothing for his shipmates (equivalent in 2009 to $5,900).
An enquiry into the disaster is being held before the Collector of Customs.
It is understood that Captain Morrison, who commanded the Lastingham, had retired from the sea sometime back but was ruined by the failure of the Glasgow bank and had to go to sea again, this being his second voyage.
The lastinham struck head on and immediately broached to when her side was exposed to the fury of the terrific sea running and the deck houses boats and everything about decks were swept overboard. The sea continued making a clear sweep over the ill-fated vessel and in about an hour the decks bulged out and this was the last seen of the vessel as she them slipped off the rocks and disappeared in deep water. It was with the greatest difficulty any of the crew managed to reach the rocks and they were then in a very exhausted condition and their hands were severely lacerated
Captain Babot of Shaw, Saville and Co has taken charge of the survivors and will see to their wants being properly attended to.
The shipwrecked crew speak in high praise of treatment they received at the hands of Captain Jensen of the ketch Agnes

A MESSAGE RECEIVED 28th August 2010
from Charles A "Chuck" BENCIK ...
I retired from *San Diego Maritime Museum as Librarian in 2002. During my 5 years in that job I discovered that in the book "Star of India Log of an Iron Ship" (a book about the immigrant ship Euterpe by Jerry MacMullen - first printed 1961), that he made a mistake: the voyage listed in the appendix in the back as "London - [dep] Oct. 19, '81 - [To] Wellington [Returned to] Liverpool" did not happen as listed. Euterpe did not go to Wellington and never did arrive at Wellington in February of 1882. Euterpe instead went to Sydney, Australia, then to Newcastle, Australia, to San Francisco, then to London, returning around 1st March 1884. The story of that voyage (I wrote it) is in the Maritime Museum's Quarterly, "Mains'l Haul", entitled A Tragic Chapter Revealed Vol. 33:No. 4: pages 32-39. If you want to find names of persons who sailed on Euterpe/Star of India, simply go to this site: the EUTERPE/Star of India Index
Incidentally, the library at the Maritime Museum in San Diego has a complete collection of all the newspapers from the various ports she sailed to, to which immigrants arrived and each paper gives a list of passenger names and other details about those voyages. The Librarian's name is Dr. Kevin Sheehan and he is a very friendly Aussie. Good Luck!

NOTES

OCEAN MAIL - 2.2.1874 - Brought 323 immigrants (245 adults). 5 children died of whooping cough & also had 3 cases of scarlatina on board. At one o'clock the Luna went off, having the health officer and the immigration officer and others on board. On reaching the Ocen Mail and hearing the report she was not boarded but was ordered into quarantine immediately and was towed over to Somes Island. A good deal of anxiety was evinced when it was seen from town that the yellow jack was run up to the masthead but by 7pm people were relieved to hear that the disease was not of a more serious character. Fresh provisions were sent on board for the comfort of the immigrants and the passengers were finally landed from quarantine 9th Feb
