WEDDING BELLS - CALLAGHAN-AUSTIN

A quiet but pretty wedding took place at the Roman Catholic Church, Stratford, on Wednesday last, 4th, when Miss Johanna Callaghan, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs John Callaghan, of Finnerty Road, Ngaere and late postmistress of Ngaere, was married to Mr James Austin, eldest son of the late Mr James Austin and Mrs Austin, of Glasgow, Scotland.

The Rev Father Tracey performed the ceremony. The bride, who was given away by her brother, Mr C.(Cornelius) Callaghan, was attired in a pretty dress of silver-grey ciolienne, made with pointed tunic and trimmed with silver-grey Oriental trimming, transport yoke of lace outlined with shaded rucheel ribbon to match. She wore a black velvet hat, with grey wings and carried a shower bouquet of white jonquils, white narcissus and asparagus fern.

The bride was attended, as bridesmaid, by her youngest sister, Miss Doris Callaghan, who wore a creme radianta with Peter Pan lace collar and cuffs, black chip hat, with white plumes and touch of cerise; she also carried a posy bouquet of white flowers and maiden hair foliage and wore a gold bangle, the gift of the bridegroom. Mr P. O'Reilly acted as best man. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a set of silver-backed brushes, comb and hand mirror, in case. The bride's gift to the bridegroom was gold double Albert chain.

The wedding presents were numerous and costly, showing the esteem in which the bride was held and included a handsome case of solid silver afternoon tea spoons and sugar tongs from the guards of the Hawera-New Plymouth section of the railway department.

In the evening Mr and Mrs James Austin left by motor for their future home at Opee road, Opunake.
The bride's going-away dress was a navy blue tailored costume, creme silk voile blouse, trimmed with rich silk insertion, brown tuscan hat with brown ribbon

* maternal grandparents Henry Dowthwaite (1854-1942) & Emma Jane Lilly (1859-1931)

* JEAN ELIZABETH Carey
Jean was born 16 Feb 1914
.. A week before her first birthday Jean was struck down with polio. There followed years of treatment in hospital at Trentham, where the medical technology of the day did its feeble best. But the scourge of polio left Jean with one leg 1½ inches shorter than the other. She did not walk until she was five and then with the aid of a heavy boot and calliper to the thigh. But her glowing spirit was already apparent. She was chosen during a later stay at the hospital, to present a bouquet to Lady Alice Fergusson, wife of the Governor-General, who was paying a visit.
Jean did most of her schooling in Patea. She learnt piano from her aunt 'Gert' Carey who was a double diploma holder (Doreen Louisa Gertrude 'Gert' Edwards, A.T.C.L., L.T.C.L4, married Alfred Arnold Carey) and Jean herself became an Associate of the Trinity College of Music.
Jean was a cheerful, willing and positive woman whose disability was not a factor in the way she lived her life, one of usefulness and service to others. She managed a Patea clothing factory for a time, was a leader of the Girl Guides, organist at St George's Anglican Church for many years and took her share in other community activities. She became an apprentice tailor with Jack Dempsey at his shop in Egmont Street and then moved to Wellington ..more at her link

Near the close of the evening Mr F. Ramsbottom spoke in eulogistic terms of Miss Carey and on behalf of those present wished her every happiness and prosperity in the future and asked her to accept a handsome handbag. As Miss Carey rose to reply she was accorded musical honours.
A dainty supper was served and the singing of Auld Land Syne brought the evening to a close.

* The adventurous Jean went to Melbourne before the war, meeting up with Carey relatives. She returned to Wellington and worked as a tailoress and dressmaker. It was there she met Milton Kingston Fleet

The service was fully choral as a compliment to the bride, who was a member of the choir. The organist was Mrs A. Carey ('Gert', her aunty & music teacher) and the officiating minister the Rev W. H. Walton.
The bride, who was escorted by her father, looked charming in a dainty frock of ivory needle-run lace and satin. The skirt formed a point in the centre of the bodice in front and fell in soft folds to ivory velvet shoes. The V-neck was edged with tiny satin pleating and the long sleeves, ending in points over the hands, were finished with the same pleating. At the waistline in the back was a true lover's knot of pleated satin, which was inlet into the lace, the ends reaching to the long train. From a dainty orange blossom tiara fell a beautiful hand-embroidered tulle veil which formed a second train. Her bouquet was of chrysanthemums, carnations, helibore and maidenhair fern.
In attendance were Mrs G. Cosford (sister Nellie), sister of the bride and Miss B. Thomason, Cambridge, who were frocked alike in reseda green georgette ankle-length frocks. The skirts came to a point in the centre of the bodices in front. Tiny self buttons trimmed the back and finished at the belt. An unusual note was introduced in the shirred yolks, shirred puffed sleeves and shirred hemlines, forming a scalloped effect. Their smart hats were in stiffened reseda green net, trimmed with scarlet velvet ribbon and flowers. Their shoes were also scarlet and they carried beautiful bouquets of scarlet flowers and berries.
Little Cherry Campbell, Patea, cousin of the bride, was a picture in a sweet ankle-length frock of green sprigged organdie with a scarlet velvet sash and a tiny scarlet bow trimmed the neck. A halo of scarlet rosebuds was also worn and she carried a basket of scarlet flowers. Her scarlet shoes completed a dainty picture.
The bridegroom was supported by Messrs K. Fleet (Milton's brother Kenneth Thomas James Fleet 1907-1985), Wellington and B. Minton, Patea. Messrs M. Carey (Jean's brother Matthew Henry Carey 1913-1984) and R. Burgess, Patea, were ushers.
During the service Mrs G. Corbett sang the solo "Just For To-day". The reception was held in the Town Hall supper-room, which was tastefully decorated with scarlet flowers and berries
Mrs Carey (Jean's mum Annie) received the guests attired in a smart fuchsia velvet frock, musquash fur coat and matching toque. Her bouquet was of helibores and violets. The bridegroom's mother (Milton's mum Mary) chose a bottle-green ensemble with matching hat and accessories. Her bouquet was of lavender flowers and maidenhair fern.
When Mr and Mrs Fleet left by car for the north, the latter wore a smart prunella quilted suit under a fur coat. Her hat and accessories were to match. Mr and Mrs Fleet's future home will be in Patea

In 1943 Milton was called for service in WWI. They were then living in Seaview Road, Lower Hutt. He served as Temporary Lance Corporal 70104, 3rd NZ Division, Second NZEF. Jean moved back to Victoria St., Patea while he was overseas

* Milton died 18 July 1986 in Waitotara, South Taranaki, aged 74.

WEDDING BELLS

St George's Church, Patea, was beautifully decorated in pink and white flowers last Saturday afternoon, January 20th, when Selma Ellen (Nellie), younger daughter of Mr and Mrs Chas. Carey, Patea, was married to George Oswald, second son of Mr and Mrs G. Cosford, Taumaranui.
* son of George Edward Cosford (1884-1959) & Madeline Locking Bankart (1895-1967)
The ceremony was performed by the Rev W. H. Walton and the organist was Mrs A. A. Carey ('Gert', her aunty and music teacher).
The bride, who entered the church on the arm of her father made a striking picture in her beautiful gown of silver embossed lamé. Regal simplicity was the feature of her frock, which was on slim fitting lines, with a slightly draped bodice, while her heart-shaped neckline was caught with two silver flowers. The back was finished to the waist with tiny crystal buttons. Her full length court train was edged with silver sprays. Long sleeves ended in a point over her hands and from a halo of orange blossoms sprinkled with silver, fell a long tulle veil which was hand embroidered in roses. Silver glitter shoes completed her toilette. A beautiful shower bouquet of white roses, water-lilies, carnations and gypsophila was carried.
She was attended by bridesmaids, her sister Miss Jean Carey (chief), and Miss Margaret Naismith, who were dressed alike in dainty frocks of rosebud pink Swiss satin embroidered organza. Made on slim-fitting lines with a heart-shaped neck, a smart finish was added with a scalloped front and scalloped elbow length sleeves. Matching mittens and silver glitter shoes were also worn. From a halo of pink roses fell their shoulder length matching veils, while they carried artistic shower bouquets of rose-buds, carnations, and gladioli.
Also in attendance were the bride's two cousins, little Cherry Campbell of Patea and Barbara Bennett, Palmerston North, who made a dainty picture in their early Victorian frocks of eau de nil organdie sprigged with rosebuds.

On leaving the church, the bride was presented with a silver key by little Verona Edwards of Wanganui.
The reception was held in the Town Hall supper-room, where the tables were decorated in pink, white and silver. The handsome 3-tiered wedding cake held pride of place on the bridal table. A novel feature on the cake was a miniature bride and groom, a gift from a friend.
Mrs Carey (Nellie's mum Annie) received the guests wearing a striking model ensemble of citrus green wool crepe-de-chine with a quilted front and a model black hat of black bangkok straw, trimmed with scarlet field daisies. Her accessories were of black and she wore a dainty shoulder spray in scarlet tonings. She was assisted by Mrs Cosford (George's mum Madeline), who wore a smart ensemble in London tan. A black tagel straw hat and black accessories were also worn and her should spray was in autumn tones.
When Mr and Mrs Cosford left by car for a tour of the North, she was attired in a model frock of mermaid green charmaine, with a sun-ray skirt. A gold clasp finished the neck and her leghorn hat and accessories were in wine. She also wore an edge to edge coat of mermaid green. Mr and Mrs Cosford will live in Patea.
Among the guests present were Mrs M. Carey (Jane), Patea, grandmother of the bride and Mrs Bankart, Auckland, grandmother of the bridegroom. (Susan Jane nee Franks married Charles Locking Bankart in 1889)

* George died 2 July 2004 aged 89.

DIAMOND WEDDING
It is sixty years since Mr. and Mrs. William Evetts, of New Plymouth, were married in Wellington (states the 'Taranaki Herald'). Now, at the respective ages of 82 and 80 years, both are still hale and hearty. A family gathering was held during the weekend in honour of the auspicious occasion of the couple’s diamond wedding. Both Mr and Mrs Evetts (Martha Carvell in those days) were born in the little village of Southam, Warwickshire, England. They grew up together, being boy and girl sweethearts. Mr Evetts was in the employ of the great English engineering firm of Brogdens, with whom Sir Julius Vogel, then Premier of New Zealand, contracted for the construction of the Dominion’s railways. Mr Evetts came out to New Zealand in the ship Halcione, which arrived at Wellington on July 29, 1872. On the same vessel came Miss Carvell, the couple being married about a year after their arrival in New Zealand. There were 13 children of the marriage, of whom nine are still living. These are: Mrs R. Gardner (New Plymouth), Mrs W. Horne (New Plymouth), Mrs D. Williams (Rahotu), Mrs A. Standring (New Plymouth), Mrs J. Harnett (New Plymouth), Messrs Frank Evetts (New Plymouth), Albert 'Mick' (New Plymouth), Carvell (Okaiawa), Harold (New Plymouth). There are 15 grandchildren and seven great-grand children. A grandson and great granddaughter are resident in Suva

TIMELINE
Evening Post, 12 April 1877 PAINFUL ACCIDENT - A most painful accident occurred at Mr Tonks' hay and corn store, Manners-street, this morning to a man named Philip Fauvel. It appears that it was Fauvel's duty to hoist bales of hay, & c., from the basement of the store to the first floor by means of a rope and pulleys. He was assisted in this work by a steam engine, round one of the shafts of which the rope was fixed. While he was in the act of hoisting a truss of hay about 11 o'clock this morning, the rope got twisted by some means and Fauvel seemed to lose his presence of mind, for, instead of letting the rope go, he was whirled round and round several times. He was unable, after he had been taken round once, to get free from the rope, which twisted round his arms. One of his fellow workmen, who witnessed the occurrence stopped the engine as quickly as possible, but before that was done Fauvel had sustained some very serious injuries. Dr Harding was immediately sent for and on his arrival he found that the unfortunate man's forearm was broken and crushed above the elbow. Two of the fingers of his left hand were torn off a the first joint and his breast was injured. Dr Harding, having attended to the immediate wants of the man, advised that he should be sent to the Hospital. Fauvel was conveyed to that institution in an express.

Wairarapa Age, 11 April 1911 KAIPARORO - Last week a farewell social was tendered to Mr P. Fauvel, who has been a resident of the district for the past twenty years. The hall was crowded with visitors, many of whom came from long distances. A very enjoyable dance was held and during an interval, Mr Falkner, on behalf of those present, presented Mr Fauvel with a handsome travelling rug. It is Mr Fauvel's intention to re-visit his native home in Jersey shortly
