death of ANNIE HUNTER 1839-1906

Bush Advocate (Dannevirke), 6 July 1906
(aged 67)

...It is with deep regret we are called upon to record the death of Mrs W. H. Hunter (William Henry), of this town, which occurred at her residence this morning, after a brief illness, the cause of death being heart failure, resulting from an attack of pleurisy.

...The late Mrs Hunter was born in the Isle of Wight in 1839, and two years later arrived in the colony with her father, Mr Thomas Guthrie (1814-1876), in the ship 'Adelaide'
Annie was 4 months old when they emigrated.
The Adelaide left London 18 Sep 1839, arriving in Wellington 7 March 1840

Mr Guthrie having taken up a large block of land at Castlepoint, the subject of this notice was sent to a school in Wellington, where she remained for a number of years, and then joined her parents at Castlepoint.

In 1860 Miss Guthrie was married to Mr William Henry Hunter (1831-1876), brother of the late Mr George Hunter (1821-1880), the well-known merchant, of Wellington. The young couple then took up a run at Porangahau. Here Mrs Hunter remained till 1891 (her husband having died in 1876), when she changed her residence to Dannevirke, where she lived till the date of her death. In the days of her early married life the late Mrs Hunter had to take her full share of all the hardships and dangers incidental to life in the back country, the difficulties of which were greatly increased by the disturbed state of the natives.

Mrs Hunter is survived by four sons:-
W. G. Hunter (William George 1863-1942)
T. H. Hunter (Thomas Henry 1864-)
R. J. Hunter (Robert James 1866-1908)
H. G. Hunter (Harold Graham Hunter 1874-1930)
and two daughters:-
Mrs Campbell Thomson (Helen 1869-1908)
Mrs Ronald Norman Blakiston (Annie Constance 1871-1955)

...The late Mrs Hunter was of a very active disposition, and gave up much time to furthering the Hospital project, which always had her warmest support. She always took a keen interest in volunteering matters, and was prepared to give her assistance to any work with a charitable object.
Her death will be sadly mourned by many residents in Hawkes Bay.
...Mrs Whishaw, of Featherston, a sister of the deceased (Catherine Elizabeth Guthrie), is the only surviving member of Mr Guthrie's family.
...The interment will take place on Sunday afternoon, at 2.30
As a mark of respect to the memory of the late Mrs Hunter, Pastor Ries, as chairman of the Hospital Trustees, asked that the proceedings at the Hospital Fancy Fair be suspended for half an hour this afternoon. In doing so he said that they were all exceedingly sorry to hear of Mrs Hunter's death, as that lady was not only an old and respected resident of the district, but was ever ready to assist in movements such as they were now engaged in. In fact she had been working most assiduously for the bazaar prior to her illness, and as a tribute to her memory he moved that the proceedings of the bazaar be suspended for half an hour.
...This, on being seconded, was agreed to, and the doors were accordingly closed

ANNIE HUNTER is buried Grave, 66, Block G at Settlers Cemetery, Dannevirke

TIMELINE of Albert West Sedcole (1843-1928)
taken from NZETC:
Councillor ALBERT WEST SEDCOLE, of the Pahiatua Borough Council, was born in the parish of Hougham, near Dover, Kent. He came to this Colony with his father's family in 1855, arriving in Lyttelton on the 4th of January. They spent some three weeks in that town before coming on to Wellington, thereby escaping the earthquake by some three or four days. From Wellington Mr. Sedcole went on to Napier, where he remained for two years, returning to Wellington in 1858. In 1861 he went to Gabriel's Gully, where fortune smiled on him, and his affairs began to prosper. In 1862 he left Wellington for Canterbury, and spent no less than twenty years in the southern province, marrying there Miss Margaret Martin, daughter of Mr. Martin, shipwright, of Kaiwarra, Wellington, who was lost at sea in the year 1816.
About the year 1882, the land in the Forty-mile Bush was thrown open for sale, and after visiting the place, Mr. Sedcole determined to take up land in Pahiatua, removing with his family from Lyttelton in July of that year, and he has resided there ever since. In conjunction with his brother and Mr. W. W. McCardle, Mr. Sedcole decided to cut up some of the land on the Main Road, and thus was started what is now known as the borough of Pahiatua. Mr. Sedcole has always taken a prominent part in public affairs, and has displayed great energy in the formation of public bodies for the better conduct of matters in general; notably, the Road Board, County Town Board, and finally the borough. Mr. Sedcole acted as village steward under the Ballance Government for a considerable period. He at all times kept in view the improvement of his farm, and finally settled down to dairying, sending the milk to the butter factory. For some considerable time Mr. Sedcole has acted as land valuer for the Public Trustee and the Government Life Insurance, and, since the inception of the Government Advances to Settlers Act, has acted in the capacity of land valuer of the securities offered by the settlers for advances.

Wairarapa Daily Times, 24 July 1885
PAHIATUA - The weather still keeps very cold and damp, owing to the dense fog that hangs about till late in the day; but in spite of the weather we are still making steady progress. Buildings are foing up in every direction, besides many others talked about.
The hotel is becoming a feature in the landscape, and. when finished, will be quite an acquisition to the town. The new saw mill is expected to be in full swing in about a week, and to keep pace with the demand for building material, Mr A. W. Sedcole has made arrangements for an unlimited supply of bricks as soon as the weather will permit.

Wairarapa Daily Times, 21 January 1886
PAHIATUA - A meeting was held on Friday evening at Mr Miller's shop, when about thirty people were present to consider offers of a site for a town hall, Mr McCardle was voted to the chair. It was also resolved that a Company be formed, to be called the "Pahiatua Town hall Company" The following gentlemen were then chosen:- Messrs Reese, King, Crewe, Baylor, Gregory, Birnie and Boydon. It was further resolved that Mr A. W. Sedcole be Secretary and Treasurer

Mrs Sedcole fully intended to be present, and started before daylight on her long ride through the Forty-Mile Bush

Evening Post, 5 June 1890
A petition to unseat Arthur West Sedcole as a member of the Pahiatua Town District Licensing Committee was enquired into to-day at Woodville by Mr Preece, R.M. The arguments were that Sedcole had received an appointment as Returning Officer for the licensing elections in the Pahiatua Road District and that he had never been dismissed, neither had be resigned the office. The contention was upheld and his election declared null and void and Thomas Hicks, the next on the poll, appointed to the vacancy

A wedding of no little interest to Ashburtonites took place this afternoon, the contracting parties being Mr James Martin Dawson, of Dannevirke (formerly of the Bank of New Zealand, Ashburton) and Miss Janet Beatrice Shury, youngest daughter of Mr A. H. Shury, of this town.
The ceremony took place at St Stephen's church, which had been profusely and beautifully decorated with evergreens, flowers, wedding bells and hearts by the lady friends of the bride, the Rev E. Whitehouse being the officiating clergyman.
The bride, who was led to the altar by her father, looked very becoming in a costume of broche silk, trimmed with chiffon and d'alenecen lace, and ruchings of true lovers knots, wearing a veil with coronet of orange blossoms, caught up by a diamond ring, She carried a handsome shower bouquet of uncommon and beautiful lilies, with hand painted streamers, the initials of the contracting parties being worked in at either end in a unique and artistic manner by lady friends of the bride. The bride also wore a gold bamboo bangle, the gift of the bridegroom.
Miss Bell, the chief bridesmaid, was attired in a costume of crepe de chene, over pink and laciniolate silk, Paris hat to correspond, with pink and green trimmings. She also wore a greenstone heart pendant, and carried an exquisitely pretty shower bouquet, the gift of the bridegroom
Miss Hart, the other bridesmaid, was dressed in white silk, with Paris lace, and soft white hat to match. The lady wore a pearl pendant necklace, the gift of the bridegroom, and also carried a shower bouquet, nicely arranged.
The best man and groomsmen were Mr J. R. Friedlander and Master Bob Hart, respectively. (16 year old Robert Hutton Hart, son of her sister Helen Grace Shury & Robert William Hart)
As the happy couple left the church, a Wedding March was played in an accomplished manner by Mr Clarence Turner, brother-in-law of the bride. (Her sister Augusta Shury married Clarence Frederic Turner in 1899)
The wedding party was comprised of about 200 guests, among whom were noticeable, Mesdames Hart (Winchmore), Allen, J. Davidson, Turner, Bell, Misses Gresson and Winter, and other prominent ladies of this county.
After the ceremony, which was performed at 2.30. the wedding party were received at Mr Shury's private rooms, at the Somerset Hotel, where afternoon tea was dispensed. Toasts usual on such festive occasions, were proposed and duly honored.
Mr and Mrs Dawson left by the Mount Somers train for Mount Somers, where they will spend a short stay, and then proceed to Dannevirke, in which town they will make their future home. The bride's travelling dress was a smart tailor made dress of blue cloth, with a pretty blue French sailor hat to match.
The presents, numbering over two hundred, included silver and gold ware, articles of furniture, fancy work, wood carvings, ornamental glassware, paintings, cheques, etc., proving that the bride is highly respected and esteemed by a large circle of friends.
We take this opportunity of joining in wishing Mr and Mrs Dawson success and happiness in their new sphere of life
