FREMANTLE SEARCHABLE Cemetery
FREMANTLE Partial LIST
FREMANTLE was considered as a site for possible British settlement in 1827 when Captain James Stirling, in HMS Success, explored the coastal areas near the Swan River. His favourable report was welcomed by the British Government, who had for some time been suspicious of French colonial intentions towards the western portion of Australia. As a result of Stirling's report, Captain Charles Howe Fremantle of HMS Challenger, a 603 ton, 28-gun frigate, was instructed to sail to the west coast of Australia to establish a settlement. On 2 May 1829 Fremantle hoisted the Union Flag in a bay near what is now known as Arthur Head & became the first area settled by the Swan River colonists. It was declared a city in 1929 and in 2006 had a population of 24,835 (62% Australian born)

* GASCOYNE JUNCTION Cemetery (7 names)
GASCOYNE JUNCTION is a small town inland from Carnarvon on the junction of the Gascoyne & Lyons Rivers. A police station was built in about 1897 and settlers asked the Government to declare a townsite. By 1909, a general store and other buildings had been erected on private land and in 1912 the Government finally acceded to the request, naming the town "Killili" after a local Aboriginal word meaning "bullrush" following the Surveyor General's request for a "euphonious native name". For many years, the police station, road board (1912) and hotel were the only buildings in the area and in 1938 the Roads Board complained about the name, saying that "Gascoyne Junction" and "The Junction" were the names in common use and asking the Lands Department to "expunge" the name of Killili. The name was changed and gazetted in 1939. In 2006 the population was 149

GREENOUGH is a historical town 400km N of Perth, 24km S of Geraldton. A series of disasters starting with a major cyclone in 1872 and major flooding in 1888 as well as the discovery of gold in the goldfields caused the gradual decline and abandonment of the settlement so that by 1900 most of the settlers had left the area with many of the small farmlets converted to grazing. The town fell into disrepair until a tourism-based project in the 1980s helped refurbish many of the buildings

PHOTO
MOUNT MAGNET Amphitheatre

On the Boogardie-Lennonville road there is a very interesting rock formation known locally as the Amphitheatre. For over eighty years it has been used as a local picnic spot. It appears to be an ancient waterfall from an older land level, a laterite capped island in space. It was always a great lovers trysting place and it has been whispered that a large percentage of Mount Magnet's population originated from there.

The fine clipper ship Western Monarch, with our old friend Captain Watson on board in command, arrived at the lower anchorage at the Bluff yesterday morning, from London. She has on board 369 immigrants and 9 saloon passengers, besides a crew of 46 men all told.
As soon as she came to an anchor Captain Thomson, Harbor Master, proceeded to the pilot station, accompanied by the representatives of the press, and went on board as health officer, and after receiving the report from the doctor gave the press representatives permission to board.

Captain Watson courteously intimated his willingness to give every information respecting the boyage and ship, and after detailing the passage out, assisted by the doctor, he accompanied the health officer and your own and went over the whole of the immigrants quarters.

The Western Monarch left Plymouth on the 30th October, after having embarked all her passengers on the previous day. Fifteen minutes after leaving port the first death occurred on board - an infant which had been brought on board having wasted away - and although this at the time may have been considered an ill omen, yet in this instance it proved not to be so, as the passage of the Western Monarch throughout has been one of the finest. Here we may state also that during the whole passage there were only three deaths, one being the infant named above, another an infant dry nursed, and another a single man named Arthur O'Keefe, aged 28 years, from consumption, who had come on board almost in the last stage of that disease with a faint hope that the sea voyage might prove beneficial.
Three births also took place and all are doing well.

Whilst examining the 'tween decks, the immigrants, both married and single, expressed their heartfelt satisfaction at the treatment accorded them by Captain Watson and his officers, and especially by Dr James W. P. Hosking, who was unwearying in attending to their medicinal requirements. There was not trace of contagious disease on the passage, and all on board arrived in a fine state of health excepting one poor fellow, John Baldwin, aged 30, of Waterford, who is confined to bed suffering from consumption. (He died in the Hospital on 26 Jan)
The immigrants themselves appear to be a fine class of people, and what renders them a greater acquisition is the fact that several bring the wherewithal to give them a good footing ashore - one having given the doctor charge of £150 (Jan 2014 equivalent of $23,370), another £50, and others possessed of sums sufficient to give them a start.

The arrangement for comfort in the 'tween decks were of the best, the only part which would admit of improvement being the divisions between the berths of the married couples, which has been represented several times to the Commissioners, and although the Western Monarch has been better fitted in this respect than the generality of immigrant vessel, yet there is still room for improvement. The state of cleanliness and order throughout the immigrants' quarters not only says great things for the passengers themselves but redounds to the credit of Captain Watson and Dr Hosking, the usual disinfectants which so annoy visitors in emigrant vessel being apparently quite unnecessary on the Western Monarch, and only noticeable by their absence.

The ship herself is particularly well adapted for an emigrant vessel, being over 1300 toms register, with a spacious 'tween decks, which gave the passengers an abundance of room and consequently added to their comfort considerably. She was built in Barrow-in-Furness, by the Barrow Shipbuilding Company, and is almost a new vessel. She registers 1315 tons, and is owned by the Royal Exchange Shipping Company. She is fitted with all the latest improvements in every way, having steam winch, condenser, and steam appliances for working the yards and anchors, also fire apparatus. She is also possessed of a marked improvement on ordinary vessels, in that her lifeboats forward, which are capable of carrying 160 passengers, are always slung aboard in davits, ready to lower at a moments notice, and this in the event of colliding would be an immense advantage, the usual custom being to have all boars, excepting one or two aft, turned bottom up and well secured on the skids, which necessitates considerable loss of valuable time before they can be lowered. She is also furnished with patent anchors with improved detaching gear, which does away with the usual billhooking at the catheads, the anchors being slipped off the forecastle-head, at a moments notice.

After sailing from Plymouth the Western Monarch got moderate winds until sighting the Island of Maderia, on the 6th Nov,m where she was becalmed for four days, all the time in sight of the Island; got away again on the 10th November and had a complete change in the weather, a severe thunderstorm overtaking her, with vivid flashes of lightning. This settled into a steady N.W. gale, which necessitated her running under close-reefed topsails for three days. On the 16th of November, got the N.E. trades in 20 N. They, however, proved very limited and of little use and were lost in 7 N. on the 24th November. Got the S.E. trades in 4 N., which proved far more serviceable, they being well easterly, which enabled her to make two points easting the whole time, and did not run out of them till the 9th December.
Sighted Nightingale and Inaccessible Islands on the 14th December and Gulf Island on the 15th, with fine weather, On the 22nd passed the meridian of the Cape to the north of the Crozets. Run the easting down on meridian 47, with good steady westerly winds, and averaged 270 miles daily until within 200 miles of New Zealand, when she run into a thick fog and dodged along under easy canvass for three days, a strong N.E. to S. breeze blowing until the morning of the 18th inst., when the fog lifted and Solanders Island was sighted and the yards squared for the Straits.
The s.s. Arawata was passed off the Solanders, also a barque beating to the westward. At 6 p.m. on the 18th hove to under Stewarts island and at daylight yesterday morning run across the Straits, but a thick fog hanging over the Bluff hill Captain Watson deemed it prudent to run back to Stewarts Island, but the fog lifting soon afterwards he stood across the Straits and receiving the signal from the Flagstaff to run in to the pilot boar he ran in under Look-out Point, where received the Pilot on board, who brought her up to the lower anchorage.
As soon as the passengers are cleared Captain Watson will land them either in boats at the Pilot Station or by steamer at the wharf and proceed on his voyage to Dunedin, where he will discharge his cargo, none of it being for Southland

West Coast Times, 9 January 1879 - INVERCARGILL
Labor generally is scarce and the arrival of the ship Western Monarch with immigrants, is anxiously looked forward to. She has nearly four hundred souls on board

Southland Times, 9 January 1879 - IMMIGRANT STATISTICS
From the certified list which the immigration officer, Mr Lillicrap, has just received, and to which he has courteously granted us access, we glean some interesting details regarding this shipment of immigrants.
The 369 souls in the ship are apportioned as to age generally ans sex as follows:-
ADULTS:
194 male & 111 female
CHILDREN:
28 male & 24 female
INFANTS:
6 male& 6 female

Of the males there are 172 farm laborers, 7 general laborer, 2 gardeners, 2 shepherds, 1 rough carpenter, 1 carpenter & 1 painter
Of the females there are 38 general servants, 5 housemaids, 4 dairymaids, 3 cooks, 2 nurses & 1 nursemaid

213 are English, 125 are Irish, 13 are Scottish, 15 are Welsh, 2 are Australian & 1 Channel Islander. Nearly half of the English immigrants are from the counties of Gloucestershire, Cornwall and Devon, the remainder representing over a score of counties between Berwick-on-Tweed and Lands End. The Scotch hail from various parts and the Irish chiefly from Kerry, Clare, Limerick and Derry. Of the Welsh counties Merioneth contributes most largely

Southland Times, 21 January 1879 - SOUTHLAND HOSPITAL
Three patients were admitted yesterday to the Hospital. One came from the newly-arrived ship the Western Monarch, and was very far gone in consumption. The second was suffering from a large abscess down the right, extending from the armpit almost to the knee. The third was admitted suffering from pneumonia. The hospital is full to overflowing, beds having to be made up in the committee-room

Southland Times, 22 January 1879 - A DAY AT THE CIRCUS
At Burton's Great Australian Circus, the last day performance takes place this day (Wednesday) 22nd January. The last night of the circus as the Troupe leaves for Hobart Town per 'Ringarooma' on Thursday. The immigrants who have arrived by the Western Monarch are invited by Mr Burton to attend the Day Performance at the Circus FREE OF CHARGE

Star, 24 January 1879 - DELAYS
The immigrants that arrived the other day by the Western Monarch are not going off by any means so rapidly as had been expected. The whole of the married couples are still in the barracks, while a number of the single men and women have not yet succeeded in obtaining engagements

Southland Times, 25 January 1879 - HOUSING PROBLEMS
Two or three of the families of the Western Monarch have, with difficulty, secured house shelter, and left the depot, the immigration officer has also secured for another two or three places on stations, but the bulk remain. Several of the married men have obtained work about the town, while a few have left for the Wallacetown branch railway works, together with a good may of the single men. It seems a pity contractors have not agents in town authorised to engage and send up men to the railway works on arrival of an immigrant vessel. To-day may still decrease the number left in the depot. Of the single women only some four remain, and Mr Lillicrap expects places for these by Monday

Evening Post, 27 January 1879 - DEMANDING HIGHER PAY
The Western Monarch immigrants are giving some trouble by demanding exorbitant wages. Many employers left the barracks in disgust. An offer of temporary employment by the Corporation at 5s a day, wet or dry, was indignantly refused.
Several of the immigrants found engagements on Saturday and more could have been accommodated if they had chosen to accept reasonable wages. The ideas of too many of them are exorbitant in this respect. The Immigration Officer informs us that many of the men (single and married) refused excellent wages in his presence. The immigrants have not displayed the ready spirit fro work that was so apparent amongst the Waitara's immigrants, and farmers and contractors who were seeking labor could make nothing of them. Not wishing to be harsh the Immigration Officer has not yet stopped food supplies, but he says there is reason for such a course. We have no wish to say unkind things to the new-comers, but we would remind them of the great distress and misery they have escaped from in the old country by emigrating to this one, where they will find that their lives have fallen in pleasant places if they will be but industrious and steady and put their shoulder to the wheel with a will, But work they must, and the sooner they recognise the position the better for them

WHAKATANE Funeral Records - HAARE to JONES

WHAKATANE is a town in the eastern Bay of Plenty Region, in the North Island of New Zealand. Maori pa (Maori fortified village) sites in the area date back to the first Polynesian settlements, estimated to have been around 1200 AD. According to Maori tradition Toi-te-huatahi, later known as Toi-kai-rakau, landed at Whakatane about 1150 AD in search of his grandson Whatonga. Failing to find Whatonga, he settled in the locality and built a pa on the highest point of the headland now called Whakatane Heads, overlooking the present town.
Some 200 years later the Mataatua waka landed at Whakatane
