Thomas Joseph BROOME of BALLANCE DAIRY COMPANY, New Zealand - 1897

What happened to Thomas Broome

I would like to know where and when he died and where he is buried

He married Susan Grace Saywell in 1895
She died 2 years later
In 1899 he then remarried, to Susan's sister Edith Emily Saywell

Jemima OXENHAM - Hampshire to Wairarapa 1840

Jemima Oxenham was born in Portsea England in October 1826
- the 3rd youngest of 12 children
After the death of their parents the girls were put in an orphanage until their brother John took them to New Zealand - it was his plan to marry them off as quickly as possible

They sailed on the AURORA
This was one of first ships to New Zealand

The TORY had arrived in September 1839 with 6 passengers and filled with supplies to barter with the Maori
The second ship was the CUBA which arrived in January 1840 with 34 passengers, all of them men. A couple of them were married men whose wives followed at a later date

The AURORA carried 148 passengers
- it left Gravesend 22 Sep 1839, arriving in New Zealand 7 Jan 1840

With Jemima was her brother
* John Oxenham, aged 29, a shipwright
and her sister
* Sarah Oxenham, aged 19, a seamstress.


JEMIMA, aged about 14?, married George Hamilton COGLAN (?-1841) 4 June 1840 in Wellington
- Jemima married George 5 months after arriving in New Zealand.
Brother John wanted to 'marry her and her sister off quickly' and he did, however George turned out to be a drunkard and a mean brute.
Jemima came to despise him

The following year George was found drowned at Petone, some say it was from a boat accident, others say there was a brawl. . .

Chief Constable Richard Sayer went to tell Jemima the news of her husbands death.
She excused herself to go upstairs and be alone for awhile.
Richard then heard strange noises upstairs and the chandalier overhead was swaying. He went upstairs to see what was happening - he found Jemima, shoes off, dancing for joy at the news.
He is said to have joined in and within weeks they were married


JEMIMA, aged 16, next married Richard Burgess SAYER (1820-1854) 8 May 1842 in Wellington


JEMIMA, aged 29, next married John ASHMORE (1808-1864) 30 April 1855 in Wellington


JEMIMA, aged 40, next married Benjamin STINSON (1833-1867)


EVENING POST 20 August 1869:
DEATH - On the 13th instant, at Carterton, Mrs Jemima Stinson, formerly Mrs Ashmore. Aged 43 years.



I have had people in Carterton looking for her grave but they believe the headstone is probably no longer there ... can you help with more deatils of her husbands?


I would like to know who Jemimas parents and siblings were and also her children
