Press, 21 Sep 1938 CIVIL COURT
The Magistrate reserved his decision in a claim brought by Alfred Percy Topp, a farmer of Sefton, against the Australian Provincial Assurance Association, Ltd., for compensation claimed to be due for a period of disability caused by an operation for appendicitis and for medical expenses. The total amount claimed was £32 3s 8d but this was later amended to £23 6s, Mr Gresson said that the plaintiff had a policy with the defendant's firm which entitled him to medical expenses, £3 a week while he was confined to the house and 15s a week for a period up to four weeks while he was not confined to the house, but still incapacitated from attending to his business as the direct and exclusive result of appendicitis treated surgically. The plaintiff had contracted symptoms which led to an operation for the removal of his appendix and the claim was based on the clause in the insurance policy stated to cover this. The defence was that the plaintiff, although he had undergone an appendectomy, had not actually been suffering from appendicitis, but from renal calculus.

Press, 13 Sep 1882 A child named Annie Topp, 15 months old, died of blood poisoning on Friday last, at Wagstaff's Hotel, Akaroa. Her parents reside at Little River and it appears that on Wednesday the child (an unusually strong one) was running about in the bush with the other children, quite well and happy. On Wednesday night however, it was very restless, but the mother did not know anything serious was the matter, thinking it was caused by teething or some other ordinary child's illness. On Thursday morning however, on washing the child, Mrs Topp noticed that the left knee was much inflamed and there were two little incisions, as if from the bite of some insect. On consulting a neighbour, it was determined, as the child kept getting worse, to take her to Akaroa, so as to be under regular medical treatment. Dr Singleton saw the child, but was unable to do anything for her and she gradually sank, dying at 3am on Friday.

OBITUARY
MR J. TOPP. By the recent death of Mr John Topp, of Puaha, Little River lost an old and much respected resident. The late Mr Topp was born in Cambridge, England, in 1855 and came to New Zealand with his parents the same year. His early life was spent at Sefton, where his parents had taken up a farm. At the age of 12 years he went to work for Mr Crossley Dampier; six years later he came to Little River with the late Mr Allen. Four years later he worked for the late Mr W. Coop carting timber with a six horse team to Christchurch. In 1888 he came to the Tararewa sawmills and worked there till 22 years ago. When the Morris Settlement was cut up he purchased a farm which he successfully conducted until the time of his depth. Mr Topp married in 1876 Mary Ann, eldest daughter of the late Wm, Farquhar, of Amberley, who predeceased him 18 years ago. Although of a retiring nature, his willingness to assist any neighbour in trouble and his sincereness won for him many friends. He is survived by a family of four daughters and one son and fifteen grandchildren. The daughters are: Mrs J. Smith. (Puaha), Mrs E. Watkins (Greenpark), Mrs Percy Morris (Woodend), and Miss A. Topp (Puaha), and the son, Mr J. Topp (Puaha). The funeral, which took place at the Little River cemetery, was largely attended. The burial service at the graveside was conducted by the Rev. W. H. Stych. The pall-bearers were the oldest residents of the Puaha Settlement and the directors of the Wairewa Cheese Factory. The many beautiful wreaths received showed the esteem in which the deceased gentleman was held.

Mr John Bethridge Topp, who arrived in New Zealand nearly half a century ago and has lived in Wellington for many years, died at his residence in Wordsworth-street yesterday. The deceased, who was sixty-nine years of age, was born in Capetown and was on friendly terms with the late Sir George Grey when the latter was Governor of Cape Colony. In 1866 Mr Topp came to New Zealand in the 'Nil Desperandum' his wife and only child accompanying him. After living in the town of Auckland for two years, he took charge of a station on the Kaipara, remaining in the position for eight or nine years. He then went to Te Kopuru and was for some time a sub-manager of the big sawmill there.

WEDDING
TOPP-ELLIS - A quiet but pretty wedding took place at the Church of England on Wednesday last, when Miss Daisy Ellis, daughter of Mr J. Ellis, Devon, England and Mr Charles Topp of Reefton, were united in the holy bonds of matrimony, by the Rev E. A. Parker. The bride who was given away by her cousin, Mr Harris (Greymouth), looked very dainty in a cream charmuse satin, with a tunic of cream lace and pearls, draped and caught with orange blossoms. She carried a beautiful shower bouquet. Miss Bessie Walton (Greymouth) and Miss Enid Topp sister to the bridegroom, acted as bridesmaids. They wore very pretty cream dresses, trimmed with lace tunics and silk hats to match. They also carried shower bouquets. Mr W. O'Neill ably filled the role of best man. After the wedding the guests adjourned to the Royal Tea Rooms where a sumptuous repast was partaken of and the usual toasts honoured. The bridegroom's mother wore a pretty brown silk poplin trimmed with silk and lace and black silk lace that trimmed with black plumes and gold roses. The bride's present to the bridegroom was gold sleeve-links and the bridegroom's present to the bride a beautiful gold pendant and chain and to the bridesmaids, gold brooches set with rubies. The presents received by the young couple were very useful and costly including a couple of cheques.
The happy couple left by the evening train for Hokitika. The bride's travelling costume was a navy tailor made with floral silk ninon hat to match.

Auckland Star, 16 Sep 1925 OLD COLONIST'S DEATH
A resident of Auckland for the last 60 years, Mrs Ellen Saunders, died last Sunday night at the home of her daughter, Mrs J. Rae, Taylor Street, St Helier's Bay, at the ripe age of 92 years. Mrs Saunders' parents went to Western Australia from Scotland and she was born at Perth. She was married over there at an early age to Mr Joseph Saunders, who had gone to Australia with the Royal Engineers, where he was engaged building quarters for the convicts. Upon leaving the army, Mr Saunders, with his wife and three children, came across to Auckland in a barque. There was an acute housing problem in those days and the family could find nowhere to live. Fortunately they had a little money and Mrs Saunders was walking round Dedwood (now Ponsonby), when, seeing a man building a shack for himself, she managed to buy it, to be finished after occupation. Mr Saunders found great difficulty in getting work, as there was a slump on at the time. When he did get a job at building he was a few days later injured so seriously by a wall falling on him, that he was an invalid for over a year and Mrs Saunders had to face life among strangers with a sick husband and three children under five years of age. Ultimately Mr Saunders got an appointment under the Provincial Government as an inspector for the building of the gaol, as he was still unable to do manual work. He retained that job until the Thames god rush broke out in 1867. The family was soon on the field. Mr Saunders buying two sections in Richmond Street, erected a large building on it and started a general store. While the place was being put up the family lived in a tent. When the palmy days of the gold fields were ended the store was closed down and the building converted into a dwelling. About 30 years ago the family moved to Waihi, where Mrs Saunders lived until quite recently, when she returned to Auckland and spent the eventide of life with her daughter. Mr Saunders died 25 years ago. Mrs Saunders enjoyed remarkably good health until practically the end. There was a family of eleven children, of whom seven still survive. The sons are Messrs D. G. Saunders (Waihi), C. J. Saunders (Stanley Point) and Joseph Saunders (Western Australia). There are four daughters, Mesdames J. Rae, H. Rae, J. Hendry and J. Vuglar. There are thirty grandchildren and eighteen great-grandchildren. The interment took place at Hillsbro' Cemetery

25 Nov 1918 It is my painful duty this week to chronicle the demise of two well known young Matakanui people - Mr and Mrs F. Garty, Mrs Garty was a native of the place being a daughter of Mr and Mrs T. C. Donnelly and a bonnie, happy, young woman she was too. Mr Garty too was a general favourite. Under these circumstances it should be quite unnecessary to say that the heartfelt sympathy of all is extended to them in their great and very sad loss. Some few days ago both Mr and Mrs Garty were attacked with influenza and became so seriously ill that they were removed to the Dunstan Hospital, where despite all that medical skill and nursing could do they both passed away. Mrs Garty dying on Wednesday and her husband a couple of days later. They leave an infant child. It is indeed a sad case

28 July 1929 Mr PATRICK GARTY, who died at Waitara, at the age of 90, after living, as he put it, in the reign of one Queen, two Kings and five Popes, was born in County Westmeath, Ireland in 1839 and was tempted to leave his native land by the stories of the fortunes that were being made in new lands overseas. After spending some time in Australia, Mr Garty arrived at Dunedin in 1868 and engaged in gold mining.
