Roger (Roderick) Jones & Eliza (Elizabeth) McConaghy - Ireland to NZ

FAMILY & TIMELINE of:
ROGER (aka Roderick) JONES (1801-1881) and ELIZA (Elizabeth) McCONAGHY (1836-1913) from Ireland to New Zealand. Roger arrived as a Fencible (81st foot?) into Auckland on the 'Ann' in 1848 (see list below). He was accompanied by his (1st) wife Sarah (nee Melville) & 3 children

NOTE
Researched for katma who wrote 13 March 2019 ..
Roger Jones Fencible Born 1801, Rossory, Enniskillen, Fermanagh, Ireland came to Otahuhu, Auckland, NZ aboard the ship Ann in 1848 as a fencible to help protect settlers. He married (2nd wife) Eliza(beth) McConaghy on 25 Oct 1852, and he died in Dunedin in 1881. My GG grandfather was his son .. his name was James Jones .. b circa 1859 and according to marriage & death cert he was born in New Zealand .. I have searched everywhere for details of his birth in NZ but cannot find anything. Its James's actual birth record I cannot find .. it doesnt come up in the New Zealand Births deaths and marriages records .. children found from there are
1853 Mary Elizabeth
1857 Rose Ann
1861 William
1863 Robert
1865 Ellen
1868 Eliza
1870 Susan
1872 Mary Anne
1874 Thomas
1880 William (died the day after Roger 14 mths)
A big gap between 1874 and 1880. Eliza would of been round 44-45 yrs in 1880 - its odd that there would be two Williams maybe William in 1861 changed his name to James .. A distant relative said he was born on 12 Oct 1859, but that was some years ago and have lost his contact details now .. so hoping someone, anyone may be able to help out there ... many thanks


The FENCIBLES
Ten ships brought 721 pensioner soldiers between 1847-1852. The men numbered 721 and, together with their families, comprised a total of over 2,500 new settlers for the villages of Onehunga, Otahuhu, Howick and Panmure.
A large number of the families were from Ireland, which was in the middle of the famine and all would have been leaving for a better life in NZ.
Because of the Potato famine and typhus fever many were suffering from the effects of hunger and malnutrition. Some had found temporary lodgings in densely crowded, unhygienic accommodation weeks before boarding the ship and a number died on board or were sent to the Colonial Hospital on arrival. One of the worst affected were was those who arrived on the 'Sir Robert Sale' which was in dock at the same time as the 'Ramilies & 'Minerva' but as most of the passengers were sick they had to remain on board for 6 weeks.

The promise of owning land would have been a great incentive. When the first contingent arrived it had not been decided where they should settle. The cottages were not built. The families quickly settled into life in NZ building their own houses, growing vegetables and finding work on neighbouring farms.
The men had served in many regiments of the British Army in many parts of the world. They were used to harsh conditions and many were "pensioned out" as being unfit for further active service, largely due to rheumatism. Sometimes wives and children would have marched behind the regiment. The Fencibles were a large group of immigrants who swelled Auckland's population. They created the four villages, now suburbs of Auckland. They were instrumental in the creation of roads, bridges and lines of communication. They shaped the communities with churches, schools, shops and local governing bodies.
The average age of the men was about 40. They settled in the suburbs of Howick, Onehunga, Otahuhu and Panmure. At Howick a redoubt was built on Stockade Hill, a prominent hill at the north end of the village's main street. The position, with its associated earth works, is still there. In the 1849 census one third of Auckland's population were fencibles, half Anglican, half Catholic. Apart from working on their own plots most men were engaged in building roads between the fencible settlements. The material used for road building was scoria from volcanic cones at Pigeon Mountain (then called Pigeon Tree Hill), Mount Richmond and Mount Wellington.

The fencibles were first called to action in 1851 when a large party of about 350–450 Ngāti Pāoa from the Thames and Waiheke Island areas arrived at Auckland's Mechanics Bay in about 20 waka to attack the city. A British regiment at Albert Park Barracks was called out to the hill overlooking the bay. It was reinforced by fencibles who had come from Onehunga, the closest fencible town. Fencibles at Howick and Panmure were stood to in case of further trouble. The frigate 'HMS Fly' trained its guns on the Maori war party from offshore. The cause of the aggression was the arrest of a Ngāti Pāoa chief who had stolen a shift from a shop in Shortland Street. The situation was defused when the attackers were given tobacco and blankets. Later Ngāti Pāoa sent a greenstone mere to the governor.
A group of 121 Ngāti Mahuta under the great Waikato chief Te Wherowhero were also brought to South Auckland to defend the capital. They were given land at Mangere in 1849. They supplied their own arms but had British officers.
During the 1863 war about 75 military pensioners and their sons served in the Auckland Militia to defend Auckland.

It is estimated that there are over a quarter of a million descendants of Fencible families living today spread around the world. The villages are now bustling communities. The Fencibles came for a better life, they committed themselves to developing their communities with their labour and their limited resources. They are to be remembered with respect, for without their service the shape of Auckland would have been a very different place to what it is today.

The SHIPS:
* 'Ramilies' 5 Aug 1847
- Royal Engineers, 12 Sappers & Miners. 67 Pensioners, 57 Women, 123 Children. Apparently the Fencibles/Pensioners on the Ramilies were not located in Auckland. Also arrived in Van Dieman's land (Hobart), Dec 1845 with 233 rank & file of the 11th, 58th, 96th and 99th regiments and officers

* 'Minerva' 8 Oct 1847
- 80 Pensioners, 67 Women, 145 children. 6 births & 7 deaths. The fencibles of the Minerva mainly settled Howick

* 'Sir Robert Sale' 11 Oct 1847
- 74 Pensioners, 69 Women, 142 children. 5 births & 12 deaths. The fencibles of the Sir Robert Sale mainly settled Howick

* 'Sir George Seymour' 26 Nov 1847
- 78 Pensioners, 63 Women, 114 children. 14 deaths. The fencibles of the Sir George Seymour mainly settled Howick

* 'Clifton' 23 Jan 1848

* 'Ann' 16 May 1848
- 74 Pensioners, 70 Women, 153 children. The fencibles of the Ann mainly settled Otahuhu
New Zealander, 17 May 1848
Yesterday afternoon the bargue Ann, 800 tons, Captain S. C. Walker, arrived from Belfast, whence she sailed on the 25th Dec. She left the land on the 7th January; arrived at Table Bay, Cape of Good Hope, on the 12th April and sailed again on the 17th. She brings a detachment of the Royal New Zealand Fencible Corps, comprising Assistant Surgeon F. W. Bacot and seventy-seven men under the command of Captain Hickson, whose lady and family are amongst her passengers. There are, likewise, sixty-six of the pensioner's wives and one hundred and forty-five of their children, thirty-seven of whom are adults.
The Ann has not escaped the all prevailing influenza, that trying epidemic having carried off a few victims. The deaths were twelve and the births four.
We are greatly pleased with the general appearance of the new comers. The men seem to be hale, hearty fellows and with their wives and families likely to prove a valuable accession to our population. They are chiefly from the north of Ireland.
The Ann sailed originally from London and in consequence of her having touched the Arklow bank, without damage, on her passage down the Irish Channel, was erroneously reported to have put back. She has a variety of government stores on board.

* 'Berhampore' 16 June 1848

* Inchannan' 27 May 1852
- 78 Pensioners, 68 Women, 113 children. 10 births & 22 deaths, mostly measles and chicken pox

* Berwick Castle 13 Dec 1852
- 40 Pensioners, 37 Women, 68 children. 6 births & 9 deaths. The fencibles of the Berwick Castle mainly settled Onehunga, Panmure, Otahuhu & Howick

At some stage Roger moved south and is buried in the Southern Cemetery, Dunedin. This journal is an endeavour to trace his steps and therefore his family around NZ for his descendants.

The FAMILY:
Roger Jones (1801-1881) was born in Rossory, Enniskillen, Fermanagh, Ireland.
he married Sarah Melville (1805-1849) in Ireland
NOTES
* At Roger's death in 1881 it is reported that 2 male & 5 female children were still living. In a process of elimination any of the children marked with died before him.
* Be aware that many births (& sometimes marriages) were often only registered with one name even though they may have also been given a middle name (or two), which, back in the day was usually used as their first name anyway!. For some reason women who married for a second time often only registered with the one name they used most, even if they had 2-3-4 names. This may help you in your searches.

The TIMELINE:
* On 22 April 1853 Roger, along with many other Electors of Auckland, signed a 'petition' requesting Lieut-Colonel Robert Henry Wynyard (1802-1864), to allow himself to be put in nomination for the office of Superintendent of the Province of Auckland. He had performed the duties of the Lieutenant-Governorship of New Ulster for the previous two years.
* New Ulster was a province of the Colony. It was named after the Irish province of Ulster. Between 1841 and 1846 the province included all the North Island north of the Patea River. With the passing of the NZ Constitution Act 1846, the province came to include all of the North Island. Like the other province of NZ at the time, New Munster Province was headed by a Lieutenant-Governor who reported to the Governor of NZ

On 7 Dec 1855 Roger was one of many Electors of Auckland who signed the petition against Dr John Logan Campbell's (1817-1912) return to the Superintendency, that the election of the said John Logan Campbell be declared null and void and that Frederick Whitaker (1812-1891) be duly elected as Superintendent of the Province of Auckland

We regret to record the death, at his residence in Epuni-street, of Mr Alfred R. Bolland, civil engineer, who came out to Wellington in 1872 under engagement to Messrs Brogden, the great railway contractors. Mr Bolland was employed in the construction of the Hutt railway and was also connected with several other works carried out by the Brogdens. In his younger days he went out to Rio de Janeiro and practised his profession there for some time. After serving his connection with the Brogdens he took up his residence in Sydney and was on the staff of one of the daily papers there for a time. For several years past he had been in failing health and his death was not unexpected. The deceased, who was married to a daughter of the late Mr Vaughan, one of Wellington's early settlers, is survived by his widow and a family of six sons.

NZ Times, 23 Feb 1903 BOON - On February 21st, at 93 Daniell street (Newtown), after a brief illness, Thomas George Boon, aged 56 years. Mr Boon was, for twenty-five years in the employ of the Wellington Harbour Board. The deceased had occupied the position of timekeeper and labour foreman at the Queen's Wharf for some years. The late Mr Boon was born in London in 1847. He served in the Indian Mutiny with the Ninetieth Foot, under Sir Evelyn Wood, then Major Wood. He arrived in New Zealand twenty-seven years ago, The deceased leaves a wife and three children. The vessels in port flew their house flags at half-mast yesterday as a mark of respect to the memory of the deceased. The Friends of Mr Thomas George Boon are respectfully invited to attend his Funeral, which will leave his residence, 93 Daniel street, Newtown, this afternoon (Tuesday), 24th February 1903, for Karori Cemetery, at 2 o'clock. Members of the Grand Lodge U.A.O.D., Pacific, Poneke and Holly Lodges are invited to attend the Funeral of our late Bro. T. Boon, P.D.P., which will leave his late residence, Daniel street, at 2p.m. and Wordsworth street (now Aro St, Aro Valley) about 2.45p.m.
28 Feb 1903 The late Mr Thomas Boon, who was well-known as labour foreman on the Queen's Wharf, for the Harbour Board, will be sadly missed. He was every energetic in the discharge of his responsible duties and in "off" times could be persuaded to spin a thrilling yard of the stirring times of the Indian Mutiny. He had not long left the Army (90th Foot) when he came to New Zealand and was engaged for two years in whatever his hands found to do. For twenty-five years he had been in the employ of the Harbour Board. may time-expired soldier, who had fought under Major Wood (now General Sir Evelyn Wood, V.C.) came to New Zealand in 1875-1876 and the genial Tom boon was among them. Both in his business and private relations the deceased gentleman had made hosts of friends and his untimely death makes a gap it will be difficult to fill.

Augustus Vaughan died 14 April 1882 at the Reefton Hospital
Reefton Herald, 15 April 1882
A tailor named Augustus Vaughan, very well known throughout the West Coast, expired in the Reefton Hospital yesterday. He will be familiar to the public in Reefton in connection with the charge of sly-grog selling some years ago, when the deceased acted as informant for the police at the outset of the case, but allowed his evidence to break down when the matter came on for judicial inquiry. He quite lately revisited Reefton, having come up from Greymouth. On reaching Lardi's he was unable to walk further and as the man was completely destitute and much enfeebled, word was sent to the police. Before any steps could be taken however, he was brought to Reefton by wagon and was admitted to the Hospital on Tuesday last in a hopeless condition and he expired. The funeral will leave the Hospital on Sunday. The deceased was 54 years of age and leaves a wife in Wellington and five children throughout the colonies, but particulars of their addresses cannot be ascertained. It was reported that one daughter was a female operator in the New Zealand telegraph service, but inquiries made by Mr D. O. Preshaw, did not result in the verification of the statement ..

NOTE Mr John Hislop who for nearly forty years conducted business as a. watchmaker and jeweller at 74 Princes Street, Dunedin, was a well known colonist. As a man of business he was a credit to his guild, and all the branches of his trade were carried on with enlightened intelligence. The appliances used by him were of the best design and material, and he employed specially qualified persons in connection with cleaning and repairing watches and the manufacture of all kinds of jewellery. It used to be said that Queen Victoria never accepted presents from private individuals. Nevertheless, on the 13th of August, 1886, Mr. Hislop forwarded to her Majesty a scent bottle and paper-knife, together with a letter begging their acceptance. The sequel to this was that, afterwards, Mr. Hislop kept on his shop counter an appropriately framed letter written by Her Majesty's command, and dated the 26th of September, 1886, acknowledging the receipt of Mr. Hislop's letter and thanking him for his very beautiful gifts, for which the Queen expressed great admiration. Mr. Hislop was born in Liverpool in 1832, and served his apprenticeship partly in Scotland and partly in England. He came of a Greenock family, and his uncle, Mr. John Hislop, was a publisher of that place. Mr. Hislop left the Old Country for Australia in 1851 and entered into business at Bendigo, where he continued for most of his time in the sister colony, until attracted by the Otago gold “rush” in 1862, when he settled in Dredin and established his business. He was for several years a member of the North East Valley borough council and also held a seat on the Otago harbour board. As a Freemason he was attached to Lodge Otago Kilwinning, S.C., and had taken the Royal Arch and Knight Templar degrees. Mr. Hislop was married in 1873, and had in all twelve children—six sons and six daughters. He died in his shop, suddenly, on the 19th of October, 1900.

Auckland Star, 17 Sep 1906 DEATH of CAPTAIN STREATER Capt. Roland Streater, who with two others was injured through the collapse of a derrick on board the steamer Ayrshire some four weeks ago, died at his residence in Nelson-street at six o'clock last Saturday evening. Captain Streater's spine was badly injured and, paralysis having set in, his case was considered almost hopeless from the outset. A born sailor, he went to his first ship at the age of 16 years, trading to the Black Sea and the Far East. He joined the Shaw-Savill Co in the early eighties and it was not long before he was promoted to the rank of captain, being appointed to the command of the sailing ship 'Lutterworth' in 1887. In 1890 he was transferred to the ship 'Eutrope' and five years later he came out to new Zealand as chief officer of the s.s. 'Aotea'. Settling down in Auckland, he became a partner in the firm of Nearing and Co., stevedores. He took keen interest in all aquatic sport and was a member of the New Zealand Power Boat Association and owned the launch 'Seaford'. His wife, three sisters and a brother survive him. His sisters reside in England and the brother in Constantinople. The flags of the boats in port and the various shipping offices are lowered to half-mast as a mark of respect to his memory ..

A really novel note was struck by Mrs Rankine Brown last week with her charmingly-planned Violet Tea. The rooms were decorated with them, every guest wore a cluster on her bodice and some on the muffs, a dainty fancy - and the tea table was so exquisite.. all the cakes were iced in violet, even some of the tea-cups had violet wreaths painted on them and a most successful novelty was sandwiches of violets, crystallised! There were two competitions, one was the writing of four lines or original poetry on the violet. The prizes for the competitions - one a charming satchel of rose satin strewn with embroidered violets - were won by Miss Kathleen Beauchamp (who later wrote as the talented Katherine Mansfield) and Miss Eva Butts ..

Mrs Butts, of Newtown, on one occasion many years ago, travelled in the same ship with the present King and the late Duke of Clarence. Some mishap had occurred to the Bacchante, on which the two Princes were travelling and they transferred themselves to a passenger steamer, on which were the late Colonel Butts, with his wife and two very small children. The Duke of Clarence was much interested in Colonel Butts' stories of shooting in India and both the Princes won the hearts of the children of whom they took a great deal of notice. They were pleasant boys, frank and friendly as the present King's sons seem to be. Years before, Colonel Butts had formed one of the guard of honour at the marriage of the Prince of Wales to Princess Alexandra and Mrs Butts treasures as an interesting memento, the buckle of the sword-belt her husband wore on that occasion with its badge of the Royal Irish Regiment. It did duty again when Mrs Butts wore it at the service on Friday. Another memento treasured by Miss Butts is a little pen and ink sketch which the Duke of Clarence did for her and which bears his signature.

All present greatly enjoyed the little fete of the Sunshine Guild on Saturday afternoon in Daniel-street. The Christmas tree was, of course, the cheif centre of admiration and attraction and was a nice fruitful tree too. The sweets were in great demand and the fancy wares also found customers. Mrs Wilford opened the fete with a little speech full of kind sympathy for the work of the guild and had the unfailing bouquet presented to her. It was a charming arrangement of coreopsis, as yellow as the guild's colour. Miss Clair Butts is the secretary of the guild and she and her fellow members bring a great deal of sunshine to many who sadly need such kindly cheering. Any profits of this party will be carefully expended in helping to make Christmastide a happy season to sick sufferers.

A great many people of Wellington and other parts of the Dominion will have heard with great regret of the death of Miss Muriel St Clair Butts, second daughter of Mrs Butts, of Gordon street, and the late Colonel Butts, 18th Royal Irish Regiment, who passed away after a long illness.

Early in life she began as a Sunday school teacher at St Thomas's Church and went on to many other good works. Among these was the reading to and care of blind people and she accomplished the task of learning to read Braille and conducted correspondence for and with the blind in all parts of the Dominion, as well as transcribing many stories, pamphlets and parts of books into Braille for their enjoyment. She was a regular visitor at the Victoria Hospital for Chronic Invalids and wrote letters for them, as well as other kindnesses and giving the cheer of her presence in regular visits.
Miss Butts's life was a beautiful and well-spent one and great sympathy will be extended to her mother and family in their loss.

OBITUARY - Mrs Lucy Anna Butts
(1851-1831)
The death occurred yesterday of a well-known and highly respected lady, Mrs Butts, widow of the late Lieutenant-Colonel Butts, 18th Royal Irish Regiment and daughter of the late Major and Mrs Nixon, of Sedgwick Estate, Wanganui.
Mrs Butts, who had resided a great many years in Wellington, was a highly cultivated woman with the old-school ideas of courtesy and duty towards others. She had a delightful sense of humour, a wonderful memory, never forgetting a face or name and was a great social favourite as she had a never-failing fund of cheerful pleasantness which made her a delightful companion and friend. Mrs Butts was eminently kind too and was always ready to help others, though she was the last to make any mention or parade of her good deeds.
After the death of one of her daughters, Miss Clare Butts, Mrs Butts lived with her daughter Miss Eva Butts at Clifton terrace. She was 80 years of age and was born at Stoke, Nelson, but soon afterwards the family moved to Wanganui and took up the well-known Sedgwick Estate.

Mrs Butts came of a very interesting family. Her grandmother was a Miss Turton, daughter of Sir Thomas Turton, of Starborough Castle, Kent. She married first a Mr Petersen, son of a well-known Count Petersen, of Norway, who, during the Napoleonic War, was a fugitive from his country and a sloop of was was sent for him to the coast of Holland, bringing him to England, where he settled and bought an estate in Kent.
Mrs Nixon's two sisters married Italian noblemen, one the Marchese Burl-Macchi, of Milan and the other Conti Riccardi, the family of the latter living at Eden hall, Kent, not far from Starborough Castle. Both families attained high positions and are historical people.

The late Lieutenant-Colonel Butts came to Wellington as Commandant of the District and held the position up till the time of his death, many years ago. The family includes Miss Butts (of Clifton terrace, Wellington), Mr Harry Butts (manager of the Bank of Australasia, Tauranga) and Mr Pitt Butts (Rotorua). Much sympathy will be felt with them in the loss of their mother, who was to the end full of interest in life, a great reader of good literature and who kept herself up to date in every sense of the expression

NOTES Patent Application 24 Oct 1899, Serial No 732,475, at the US Patent Office, Charles Joseph Cooze of Carterton, New Zealand, Non-Refillable Bottle. The object of this invention is to provide a cheap and simple bottle which cannot be re filled after its original contents have been poured out. To this end I fit a glass disk into the neck of the bottle and provide the disk with a trap formed by bending a piece of tubing'into a U shape or by making a bowl with a partition, so that liquid may flow into the tube or bowl to the other side of the disk. A tube of small diameter extends above the neck and downward through the said disk to the bottom of the bottle, and immediately above the disk it is weakened by attenuation, so that it may be readily broken off?. After the tube has been thus broken off a perforated disk is fitted into the neck of the bottle above the first-mentioned disk. Patented 24 July 1900

NOTES
Philip Humphrey Chatwin was a son of Leslie Broughton Chatwin (1872-1933) & Isobel Milward (1871-1953) of Birmingham. Isobel was from one of the most prominent Birmingham families, her father, Robert Harding Milward, being a prosperous solicitor. Leslie had trained as a solicitor at Ryland Martineau (now Martineaus) but his heart was in the theatre and the sea. Isobel had also studied law. Leslie attended Oxford and had been a member of the Oxford University Yacht Club. He wrote one-act plays for the Birmingham Repertory Theatre. After WWI he was a founding member of the Midland Sailing Club and the Barnt Green Sailing Club.
Immediately after Leslie's marriage with Isobel in 1902, a scandal exploded in Birmingham which became known as the 'Milward Affair'. Because of the horror Leslie felt in being involved, (through his marriage) and the shame he felt at his clients being caught up in the 'Milward Mess' he never mentioned it. The subject was concealed from his children and grandchildren, although they found out when older through outsiders.
I recommend the book "Bruce Chatwin". Bruce was a son of Philip's brother Charles, who, like their father, was also a lawyer from Birmingham. Charles joined the Royal Naval Reserve during WWII. The biography was written by Bruce's friend and biographer, Nicholas Shakespeare and has the above story of the demise of Bruce's grandfather Leslie (Philip's father). It is also available in ebook. Also read the wiki article Charles 'Bruce' Chatwin (1940-1989), travel writer, novelist, journalist
