Hugh Belliss, TINUI, Wairarapa

Wairarapa Daily Times, 20 Oct 1905

It is with much sorrow I have to refer to the death of Mr Hugh Belliss, briefly announced in your paper on Monday last.
Mr Belliss died early on Monday morning, after a very painful illness lasting over two months and borne with great fortitude and patience. Mr Belliss, who was a native of Essex, England, arrived in New Zealand in 1848 and for many years was engaged in farming pursuits in the Te Nui Valley. For some years now he had fulfilled the duties of postmaster at Castle Point, together with the landing and shipping of goods and the dumping of the wool. He was a Justice of the Peace and a member of the Masonic Order. At one time he represented the Castlepoint riding on the old Wairarapa North County Council. He was of a pleasant, cheery nature and his death is sincerely regretted.
The funeral took place on Wednesday and was very largely attended, settlers being present from all parts of the district. The first part of the service was held at Castle Point, after which the body was removed to the Te Nui Cemetery, where the remainder of the service was read by the Rev J. H. Sykes.
Mr Belliss leaves a widow, three sons and two daughters, who have the sincere sympathy of a large circle of friends

Later he was a land agent in the Wairarapa and owned property at Castlepoint which he rented out. He also owned race horses. In Jan 1907 Miss Victoria Howell (1862-1907) was living in the house when she died from zinc poisoning due to the condition of the drinking water in the house tank. The Inquest. In 1915 Percy had his arm badly fractured while fishing off the reef at Castlepoint

ship FERNGLEN to Wellington & Nelson, April 1876

West Coast Times, 26 April 1876
The Immigrant Ship FERNGLEN, for Wellington, via Nelson, which sailed from London on the 23rd of January, is reported to have reached Nelson. There are 189 passengers. 75 immigrants for Westland, all of whom may be expected here in the course of a few day.

This vessel, which arrived at the outer anchorage on April 21st, was boarded by the Health Officer on the following morning and her passengers were landed on Sunday morning.
The Fernglen made an excellent passage of 83 days from land to land and what is of more consequence without having had any serious sickness on board. No death occurred during the voyage, but one birth increased the number of those she was to land.
On Friday soon after the ship dropped anchor one of her immigrants named Searle, who is in a state of unsound mind, whilst taking exercise on deck between two attendants, managed to escape them and immediately jumped overboard. The day was as unpleasant as it well could be and there was a heavy sea rolling up the Bay, consequently any attempt to save the unfortunate man was fraught with considerable risk, However, the occurrence was witnessed by Dr Haines, who immediately threw off his coat and jumped overboard after the poor fellow. He succeeded in catching hold of him and then swam with him to a life-buoy that had been thrown to their assistance. He got Searle on to the buoy and held him there till a boat rescued them.

The ship is a fine specimen of an immigrant vessel and the condition in which she arrived in port speaks well for those in command of her, she is built of iron and is of about 800 tons register; her 'tween decks are remarkably lofty, commodious and well ventilated and the arrangements for the accommodation of her passengers were such as to unsure cleanliness and comfort, a noteworthy feature being that her bunks were place, not as is customary along the sides of the ship, but in the centre, thus giving better ventilation. The vessel was built for the New Zealand Shipping company and is commanded by Captain Frazer and Dr Haines, late of H.M.S. Basilisk, is the medical officer. To this latter gentleman the following letter was sent by the immigrants just before their disembarkation:-
"Ship Fernglen, April 22, 1975" - To Dr Haines, B.A.G.D. - We, the immigrants on board the good ship Fernglen, think it our duty to give you our most sincere thanks for the heroic bravery shown in saving the life of Mr Searle, yesterday forenoon, hoping you may have long life and prosperity and happiness; and when you have run your course in this life, we trust that God will be as ready to rescue your soul and take it up to heaven to be at rest with Him, as you were in saving the life of our unfortunate friend Mr Searle. Accept our most heartfelt thanks and good wishes and we all give you our heart applause as well as three hearty cheers

After they got a few yards the water began to come into the dray and the horse was forced down stream with the current. Schwass remarked that it looked bad and they would have to swim. The water was then nearly up to their knees and when about two chains down it was up to their waists and the dray capsized washing them out... after William Greig, roadman for the Rangitikei County Council and Charles Managh dragged the river they found the body ..

CHARLES MANAGH died 7 Dec 1918 at his residence, Mangaone, Halcombe after a long and painful illness. He was 65
* By the death of Mr Charles Managh, which occurred at about 5 o'clock on Saturday morning, Halcombe loses one of its best-liked and most widely respected residents. He was very well known all over the district and no man was more esteemed. He had by his square dealing and fairness won for himself the name of a "straight" man. He was always affable and courteous, and had a vein of quiet humour which won him many friends. He was a typical and successful farmer, and contact with him gave one the immediate impression that he knew what he was talking about. To hear him discuss farming questions was an interesting experiences, for he could talk lucidly, even to the layman in farming matter, of things that a less able man would make much less clearer. He was very fond of a joke and no man round these parts had a more pleasant manner. He was an ever-observant, painstaking farmer, with a deep knowledge of everything pertaining to farm life. He had worked hard and by his untiring energy had amassed a fair share of material wealth. Though not appearing much in public matters, he always assisted worthy objects in a quiet way and no one ever went to "Charlie" Managh for a donation for a charitable cause and came away empty-handed. He was a strong supporter of the Halcombe Band, being a vice-president and had several times entertained the band at his home.
The deceased gentleman had lived in these parts well over 40 years and had brought up a large family - 17 in all, five boys and twelve girls. Two of the sons, Second-Lieut A. Managh and Private J. Managh, are away in France. He was related by marriage to Mr Owen McIlroy. Messrs J. and A. Managh, of Halcombe, are the dead man's cousins.
Much sympathy is felt for Mrs Managh and her family. Mr Managh came from Co. Tyrone, Ireland, sailing in the 'Dover Castle' landing in New Zealand in 1875.

* The funeral of the late Charles Managh will leave his late residence, Mangaone, Halcombe, to-morrow (Sunday) at 2.30pm for the Halcombe Cemetery. Friends please accept this intimation

Claude Grimes, the Crlebe torward, writes to
Mr C. A. McCarthy: "Looking through the papers the other day I thought I saw that Bob Stone gained the D.C.M. Let us hope it is true; it is just the sort of thing he would do. [Stone gained that honor — Ed. 'Referee'] Have you heard any more of Summers and Elwood. [Both are now on the list of killed — Ed. 'Referee'] I have been staying with an aunt in Kent about three miles from Dover. I had left there only the day before some German seaplanes dropped bombs about. They were only two miles from where I lived — trying to get at the aerodrome. I am having quite a run around the country, and shall know it soon. I see that they are sending men from Sydney to replace those in Egypt looking after horses. I do not see why they could not give some of us fellows the job, as we are quite able to do that work and a lot harder too. Just fancy sending fellows with one good eye back to Australia as unfit. I wrote to my colonel about it. My father tells me my eldest brother has enlisted, which makes the whole four of us at it now — and the sister wants to nurse. This country is full of troops. There does not seem to be anyone else working,"
* In Oct 1921 Claude registered his new company 'Grime Brothers,' motor and general engineers

* nothing known at this time. If you read Sydney's obit she was in England in 1917

Evening News, 7 Nov 1876
Speaking of the death of this much-respected clergyman of Singleton, which occurred on the 31st, the Times says:- his death was occasioned by consumption. During his short life in the diocese, Mr Grime made numerous friends and many little instances might be given of disinterested kindness shown to him during his last illness.The funeral took place on Thursday, the 2nd instant and was, in some respects, a singular pageant. Ten clergymen of the district were present besides a number of the parishioners. The remains were interred in the Church of England cemetery, to which the mourners proceeded principally in vehicles.
The pall-bearers were the Revs F. D. Bode of St John's Newcastle; J. Dixon of Wickham; W. Kildahl of St Paul's West Maitland and C. Mills. The burial service was performed by the Rev B. E. Shaw of All Saints, Singleton; E, Chapman of St Mary's, West Maitland and Canon White of St Alban's Muswellbrook.
Mr Grime was the son of Major Grime and a native of Sydney. He was, however, brought up in England and underwent his preparation for the ministry at St Aidan's College, Birkenhead

Newcastle Morning Herald and Miners Advocate, 25 March 1887

The Rev Sydney C. J. Grime has arrived in Newcastle, and has entered upon his duties at Christ Church pro-Cathedral, in succession to the Rev. Mr Longbottom, who is now on his way to England by the Massilia. Mr Grime was educated at St. Augustine's College, Canterbury, England and is a brother of the Rev. J. J. Grime (John Joseph Grime 1848-1876), who was located in Newcastle some years ago, before the present pro-Cathedral was erected, and who subsequently removed to Singleton, where he died. The Rev. S. C. J. Grime was in care of a parish in New Zealand for three years, whence he returned to England to assume the duties of chaplain to her Majesty's forces at Aldlershot.
Mr Grime is married to the daughter of an old resident of this city - whom some of our readers may recollect - Mr Crosdill, the owner of the large Crosdill estate, and it will be interesting to Newcastle historians to state that Major Grime, father of our new clergy-man, was stationed in Newcastle in the "good old days" when the 99th Regiment was posted here. Mr Grime is therefore hardly a stranger, and is sure to soon gather a crowd of friends around him. He seems to be much pleased with Newcastle, of which he speaks in eulogistic terms.

Sydney Morning Herald, 13 Jan 1917
NEWCASTLE - Friday 12th
Minor Canon Sydney Calvert Jackson Grime died in a private hospital at about 2.30 o'clock this morning, after a short illness. He had an attack of cerebral hemorrhage yesterday morning, and on medical advice went to the private hospital. In the afternoon he became gradually worse, and died early this morning.
Deceased was educated at St. Augustine's, Canterbury (England). In 1873 he went to New Zealand, where he was admitted into the deaconate in 1878, and to the priesthood by the Bishop of Dunedin a few years later. He was curate at Oamaru, and then became incumbent of Riverton till 1884, when he received the appointment of curate to the Christ Church Cathedral, Newcastle. He was appointed to Minor Canon in 1909, and held that position till the time of his death.
He leaves a daughter, who is at present in England, and four sons, three of whom are now either serving at the front or on their way, whilst a fourth has recently returned from the front through having lost the sight of an eye.

Sydney Morning Herald, 15 Jan 1917

Tho funeral of the Rev. S. C. J. Crime, minor canon of Newcastle, took place on Saturday afternoon. A service was held in the Cathedral at two o'clock, the remains having been removed to there from Pipitea Pah Private Hospital (Newcastle). In addition to the bishop, who officiate, there were present the Dean of Newcastle, Revs. Canon Ramm, North-Ash, F. V. Drake, F. Woodger, C. V. Mather, F. S. Griffith, F. J. Beeman, and members of the Cathedral staff.
The bishop, in the course of a brief eulogy of the late canon, said that they had met for the first time thirty years ago. They were both then in Fitzroy, and after the lapse of many years they had been brought together in Newcastle.
Canon Grime had been a military chaplain at one time. After his appointment here, he showed extraordinary enthusiasm in the work of the church. He was punctual, ever ready, and very painstaking. Whatever service he undertook to do, he did well, and the value of his work would be found in the difficulty they would have in replacing him. Active, brave, and most wonderfully courteous, he was always bright and cheerful. He had actually worn himself out, and even on the very day before his death had been present at service. Up to the last he had been in harness, and loved to be there. The bishop added that he had received a message of sympathy from the Dean of Kalgoorlie, the Rev. Dr. Golding Bird, adding, "May he rest in peace." In that wish they could solemnly unite.
The Cathedral organist, Mr E. King, then played "The Dead March" in "Saul," as the coffin was removed, Wardens Underwood, Parnell, Coverdale, Clack, Rae, and Willey acting as pallbearers.
Members of the clergy and robed choristers marched at the head of the cortege, which was also attended by many prominent citizens of Newcastle and different parts of the district. A squad of Boy scouts, under Scout-master Davis, formed up in the rear. The remains were then entrained for the Church of England portion of the Sandgate Cemetery. The burial service was taken by the Dean, who also read the prayers and performed the last rites of the church.
Wreaths were sent by Mrs A. Grime, Isabel and Claude Grime, staff of Grand Hotel. Wardens and Parochial Council, Mr and Mrs Sells and Freddie, Mr and Mrs Campbell Wood, Mrs G. A. Campbell, Mrs Craven, Cathedral Women's Guild, Mr Sydney Willey, Mr H. H. Lang, Broken Hill Cricket Club, the Dean and Mrs Archdall, Bishop of Kalgoorlie, Mrs J. Ireland, sen., and family, Mrs Teece and Miss Swanston, Mr and Mrs J. L. C. Rae, doctor, matron, and nurses, Mental Hospital, Mr J. R.

Wood, Cathedral Troop Boy Scouts, Absent Children, Mr and Mrs H. Berkeley, Mr and Mrs W. H. Baker, Mr and Mrs Sidney Wansey, gentlemen friends at the Grand.
