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. In 1875 he married and two years later he sold out his mining interests and returned to Ireland with his wife and child.

Wairarapa RANGATIRAS Genealogy - 1909

27 July 1909
compilation of WAIRARAPA RANGATIRAS

A committee of Wairarapa Maori has been engaged for some time past in tracing the ancestry of the reputed descendants of various leading rangatiras of a couple of generations back, with a view of compiling a reliable genealogy for various purposes connected with native usages. The committee has gone to considerable trouble to insure accuracy and the result of their investigations has been that the following names are authenticated as being those of chiefs or descendants of chiefs in the Wairarapa

11 May 1938 It is with profound regret that we record the sudden passing on Thursday morning of Mr John Norrie, editor and manager of the Tuapeka Times. Though Mr Norrie had not enjoyed good health for some time past, he continued carrying out his duties up to Wednesday evening.
Born in Glasgow in 1861 he came to New Zealand with his parents at an early age, his father eventually taking up a farm in the Tokomairiro district. At the age of 14 he entered on his apprenticeship with Bruce Herald and served his time on that paper, afterwards taking up a position on the Mataura Ensign at Gore. For a short period he managed a small periodical, the Waimea Plains Review for Mr Hugh Sutherland Ballantyne who had extensive land interests on the Waimea Plains. During his time in Gore, Mr Norrie was actively associated with a number of local societies.
In 1884 he married Miss Catherine Fisher, a daughter of a well-known Gore family.
A proposal to commence a paper in Lawrence in opposition to the Tuapeka Times led the then proprietors, Messrs Pilling Bros., to sell out to the sponsors of the proposal and the Tuapeka Times Newspaper Coy, Ltd was formed, Mr Norrie being appointed manager in 1896. Seven years later, Mr Norrie tokk over the position of editor from Mr F. M. Byrne and retained the dual position of editor and manager until his death. From 1901 he was also a director of the company.
Mr Norrie had a long record of willing public service. Outstanding in his work as a member of the Lawrence District High School Committee for a period of forty years, latterly as chairman. He retired from office only a week before his death and it had been proposed to recognise his valuable services at an appropriate function. Arising out of his connection with the school, he was president of the South Tuapeka State Primary Schools Sports Sub-Association from its inception.
A staunch supporter of the Presbyterian Church, he became a manager shortly after his arrival in Lawrence taking office as elder during the ministry of Rev H. H. Barton. He was senior justice of the peace in the district holding office for 33 years and carried out willingly and faithfully the many duties which that office imposed upon him. He was also for many years a member of the Athenaeum Committee.
The sympathy of a wide circle of friends goes out to Mrs Norrie and his surviving sons - Messrs William Norrie (Napier), James Norrie (Wellington) and Robert Norrie (Wellington).
The esteem and respect in which the late Mr Norrie was held throughout the district was fully shown by the large and representative attendance at his funeral on Saturday afternoon.

5 March 1934 SUTHERLAND - On march 4th, at 36 Sheen street, Dunedin, Jane Phillips Sutherland, widow of the Reverend John Mowat Sutherland, of North Taiere. Private interment
* HISTORY OF THE CHURCH The history of the Presbyterian Church in Mosgiel might be said to commence with the coming of the Rev John Mowat Sutherland, M.A., to North Taieri toward the end of 1875. Mr Sutherland was born in Lybster, Caithness, in 1845. He studied theology in the New College, Edinburgh and was licensed to preach in 1873. A year later, in the month of March, he arrived at Port Chalmers. At that time the North Taiere parish was vacant. Mr Sutherland received and accepted a call and began his ministry there on September 16 1874. What was then known as the village of Mosgiel began to forge ahead, owing to the woollen factory gathering a population around it and Mr Sutherland was quick to see that the spiritual needs of the community required more attention. Occasional services had already been provided by the Revs William Will (East Taieri), James Davidson (North Taieri) and laymen from Dunedin; but Mr Sutherland realised something of the possibilities of Mosgiel and the necessity for increased pastoral oversight. He provided a regular Sunday afternoon service and that was the definite beginning of the Mosgiel Presbyterian Church.
In march 1875, the North Taieri Session, at the request of the minister, decided that the communion should be dispensed in Mosgiel on April 18 and that the Thursday previous be "regarded as a day of humiliation, thanksgiving and prayer." Mr Smail, factory manager and other employers of labour in Mosgiel, agreed to suspend business operations on the fast day. A preparatory service was conducted by the Rev A. Greig, M.A., from Otago Peninsula and on the following Sunday the Rev J. M. Sutherland dispensed communion for the first time in Mosgiel to 18 persons, who had "satisfied the session as the their being bona fide members of the Presbyterian Church."

Mrs Swainson leaves a family of three sons and two daughters

8 May 1940 FARMER DROWNED. The opening of the shooting season in the Wairarapa was marred by tragedy, when Arthur Warren, a well-known farmer of Rawahi, Pirinoa, was drowned. He was aged 38 and was married with one child. Warren was one of a party of four. He was driving a motor-boat, with one passenger, Hugh Swainson, licensee of the lake Ferry Hotel. He landed Swainson and then said he was going to pick up a swan which was floating on the water. It is surmised that, as he reached for the swan, he over-balanced and fell into the water. The boat went on. Warren was clothed in waders and gumboots, which dragged him down. Five minutes later the boat was seen pursuing an erratic course with no occupant. The police were advised and are dragging for the body, which has not yet been recovered

TIMELINE
(written in 1897) Mr David Bell, one of New Zealand's old soldiers, was born in Kerry, Ireland, in 1838, his father being a soldier in the 65th regiment. Leaving school at fifteen, Mr Bell enlisted in his father's regiment, being sent to London and Afterwards to Portsmouth. He was in the Isle of Wight when a draft from the 65th and 58th regiments was sent from the depot to New Zealand. The detachment — of which Mr Bell was one — arrived in Auckland in June, 1854, by the ship “Egmont,” and was sent on to Wellington, Mr Bell joining the band of the regiment.

When the 65th regiment was called to Auckland, to relieve the 58th regiment, who were recalled to England, he remained in New Zealand and returning to Auckland, was sent to the front when war broke out in Taranaki. After some active service, his company was ordered back to Auckland to reinforce the garrison till the arrival of the 14th regiment from England, after which he was sent to the front, where he remained till the difficulty was settled.
He served under General Cameron in the Auckland campaign, being engaged in making roads from Drury to the Queen's Redoubt and Waikato River in the Waikato district. Mr Bell was amongst those chosen for the well-known Flying Column, which, with such officers as Colonel Nixon, Major Walmsley, Captain Pye, Ensign (now Lieut-Colonel) McDonnell and the famous Von Tempsky, kept the means of communication open in difficult times in the Waikato. He also saw active service at the Queen's Redoubt, Pokono Hill, Te Awamutu, Otahuhu, the Gate Pah and at other engagements. When peace was proclaimed in Te Awamutu and Waikato the officers reformed the Band, Mr Bell being appointed Band Sergeant and Band Master. They also offered to send Mr Bell, on the regiment's return to England, to Weller Hall Military School of Music for three years at their own expense to improve his knowledge. Mr Bell, however, declined the offer and took his discharge at Otahuhu when peace was declared.
He became Band Master of the Wellington City and Wanganui No. 1 Rifles Bands. He was presented on public parade with a Baritone instrument by the late Lieutenant-Colonel Reader and was promoted from Band Master to a Commission as Ensign and afterwards to the post of Lieutenant.

Coming to Wellington he secured an appointment in the chief Post Office, which he held for about four years. In 1869 Mr Bell went into business as a grain and produce merchant in Willis Street Afterwards he started hotel-keeping in Waipawa, where he continued for two years. Coming back to Wellington, he began business as a general carrier, founding a line of coaches to Island Bay. In 1895 he had a short experience as licensee of the Island Bay Hotel. Mr Bell, who is a widower with three sons and four daughters now resides at No 9, Moir Street, Wellington.

1 Aug 1942 Mr H. J. LAWRENCE. The death occurred in Wellington this week of Mr H. J. Lawrence, only son of Mr and Mrs J. Lawrence, Wallace Street, Wellington and a grandson of the late Mr David Bell, of Nireaha. Born in Wellington 40 years ago, Mr Lawrence was educated at the Newtown Primary School and at Wellington College, prior to engaging in a commercial career. At the time of his death he was on the staff of the Housing Construction Department. A keen, sportsman, he was a life member of the Wellington Mercantile Cricket League and was its honorary secretary from 1927 to 1933. During this period he devoted himself diligently and with rare enthusiasm to the task of promoting its welfare. He was keenly interested in the formation of a Mercantile League Umpires' Association and the establishment of this organisation in 1931 was almost entirely die to his untiring efforts. Lately Mr Lawrence's interests included the St Peter's Scout Troop. The large attendance at the funeral service in St Peter's Church and the many floral emblems received bear eloquent tribute to the high regard in which he was held by a wide circle of friends

Eliza Bell died 24 April 1888 in Wellington aged 48
24 April 1888 On the 24th April 1888, at her residence, Moir-street (Mount Victoria), Wellington, Elizabeth, the beloved wife of David Bell, aged 48 years; deeply regretted. R.I.P.

On 23rd November 1925, at his residence, Nireaha, David Bell; aged 86. Deeply regretted

24 Nov 1925 Mr David Bell, of Nireaha, a Maori War veteran, died yesterday afternoon at the age of 86 years. The deceased was a corporal in the 65th Regiment and served in New Zealand till 1866, being in the big engagements at Bloc and Omata. He was an enthusiastic member of the Maori War Veterans' Association. In the procession at the funeral of the late Prime Minister the late Mr Bell, despite his age, was one of the Maori War veterans who followed on foot.
The deceased was last in Wellington during the visit of the United States Fleet, when he was one of the representative Maori War veterans who were present at various functions. Mr Bell was bandmaster of the Wellington City and Wanganui No 1 Rifles bands and in Wellington held a position in the Postal Service for some years. He then went into business as a grain and produce merchant and later kept a hotel at Waipawa. Returning to Wellington, he started a carrying business and founded a line of coaches to island bay. For the past 25 years he occupied a farm at Nireaha. He was an ardent horticulturist and had one of the best collections of flowering shrubs in the Dominion
The late Mr Bell left three sons, of whom Messrs, Albert and Bernard Bell reside at Nireaha and Mr David Bell at Wellington and four daughters, of whom Miss Bell and Mrs Christie reside at Nireaha and Mrs Rutter and Mrs Lawrence at Wellington.
The body of the late Mr Bell will be brought to Wellington for the funeral on Thursday

5 Dec 1925 There passed away on Monday, November 23 1925, one of Wellington's very early settlers, Mr David Bell, who had been farming at Nireaha for many years and had one of the most up-to-date farms in the Dominion. Quite a large number of relatives and friends attended the funeral, both at Nireaha and Wellington where his body was taken to be cremated at Karori. Mr Bell left a grown family to mourn the loss of a devoted parent. Messrs A. Bell, D. Bell, N. Bell, the daughters being Miss Bell (Nireaha), Mrs Christie (Nireaha), Mrs J. W. Lawrence, Wallace street, Wellington. Mrs J. T. Rutter, Kelburn, Wellington. Mrs Bell predeceased her husband by a number of years

NOTE David died at Nireaha. His body was brought down to Wellington, cremated at Karori and his ashes removed. I believe they were 'put' (buried, scattered) with his family there.

Death of Rev Joseph Jeremiah Purcell O'Reilly (1799-1880), Wellington NZ

Evening Post, 22 July 1880
DEATH of FATHER O'REILLY

A good old man has gone to his rest in the person of the Rev Father O'Reilly, whose decease will be sincerely mourned by the religious community to whose spiritual wants he was such a zealous minister, and whose sorrow will be sincerely sympathised with by persons of all sections of belief, who have any knowledge of the many virtues of the kind and charitable old priest now gathered to his fathers.

The Rev Jeremiah Joseph Purcell O'Reilly was born in Cork, Ireland, in the year 1799. He was educated in France and Rome and, entering the order of St Francis, was ordained a priest at the age of 25. After being in Cork and Dublin for some time, he was stationed in Kilkenny, where he greatly endeared himself to his people by his untiring zeal and kindness of disposition. When, in 1841, he sailed for Wellington, having accepted the position of chaplain to Lord Petre, the parting with his flock, as may be imagined, was a very bitter one.

Arrived in this city, Father O'Reilly set to work to establish the first Roman Catholic Church in the settlement and ministered in the building erected by his exertions on the site of what is now St. Joseph's, Boulcott-street, until 1868, when he paid a visit to Europe, spending about six months of the time in Rome, where he was appointed chaplain to the Papal Zouaves.
He returned to the colony in 1870 with Bishop Viard and devoted himself with untiring activity to his parish work until 1879 when, owing to his great age and growing infirmity, he was compelled to retire. He was succeeded in charge of the parish by the Rev Father Kerrigan, who had been assisting Father O'Reilly for some time previous to his retirement and still holds the cure.
Although very feeble, the good old priest continued able to get about until a few months ago, his venerable appearance as he plodded his way through the streets at once impressing a stranger with respect. Latterly the poor old man, however, had been breaking up and for several days past was unable to leave his bed, in the school-room next to St. Joseph's Church, which was fitted up as his residence, even to enter the church adjoining, where, as long as he could possibly do so, he passed the greater portion of his time engaged in religious exercises. Gradually his powers failed him, although he retained his mental faculties to the last and yesterday afternoon, amid the most devoted attentions of loving friends, he peacefully departed this life to reap the reward of his labors.
As has been already intimated, it is almost impossible to express the love and esteem which Father O'Reilly inspired among the members of his flock. Of him it might truly be said, in the words of Chaucer -
"This noble ensample to his sheep he gaf,
That first he wroghte, and afterward he taughte.
But Christe's lore, and his apostles' twelve,
He taught but first he follow'd it himselve"

Father O'Reilly's life was indeed a living sermon to his flock. His charity was unbounded and the call of sickness was never made to him in vain. In fact he gave away nearly all his means, living a most abstemious life himself, in order that he might relieve the wants of his less fortunate brethren, no matter to what creed they belonged; and there is no doubt that his health was greatly injured by the privations and exposure to the weather he endured on his visits of mercy.
As an instance of his self-denying habits, it is recorded that he declined to take up his residence in the parsonage erected for him in Boulcott-street, saying it was much too grand a place for him, upon which the school-room, already referred to, was fitted up as comfortably as possible for him, and here he breathed his last. It is also told of him that some years ago he was called out to a sick person living at what is now known as Newtown, but which was then a howling wilderness of swamp and hills. Unfortunately the good old priest lost his way and next morning was found by a milkman up to his waist in a swamp, calmly telling his beads.
It may also be mentioned that Father O'Reilly was an earnest and successful temperance advocate and was an author of culture and ability, having written various books on the teachings of the church and other subjects.

The funeral of the deceased priest is fixed to take place on Sunday afternoon, in the Catholic cemetery. The procession will leave St. Joseph's Church at half-past 2 and the interment will take place with all the solemnities of the church. In the meantime the body will lie in state at the church from this evening until Sunday.

THE FUNERAL CEREMONY
The remains of the late Rev Joseph Jeremiah Purcell O'Reilly were interred yesterday afternoon in the Catholic Cemetery, overlooking the Terrace. Though chilly, the weather was fine and the funeral ceremony was witnessed by one of the largest gatherings of persons on similar occasions for some time past. That the deceased was held in high esteem by the public generally is attested by the fact that among those who followed his remains to the burial ground were persons representing almost every description of religious belief. In addition to the large number of people directly connected with the funeral procession, great crowds assembled along the line of route and as the cortege passed, took up their places in the rear, until at length the procession occupied a dozen minutes in passing a given point. Besides these, hundreds of people gathered around the grave and its vicinity to watch the arrival of those taking part in the ceremony and it is computed that there could not have been fewer than 7,000 to 8,000 persons who attended the funeral.
At half-past 7 and at 10 o'clock yesterday morning, Mass was celebrated at the Roman Catholic Cathedral; and a mass also took place at St Mary of the Angels, Boulott-street, at 7.30, 9, and 10. In the latter place of worship, moreover, a solemn requiem mass was performed at 11 o'clock, the church being crowded to its utmost capacity. The hour fixed for the formation of the procession was 2.30 p.m., but long prior to this citizens began to flock towards the neighbourhood of St Mary's of the Angels, and many were privileged to obtain a farewell glance at the face of the departed one, previous to the coffin and its contents being consigned to the grave.
Shortly after the hour named, the coffin was borne from the interior of the church to the bier awaiting it at the door, the priests within the sacred edifice, meanwhile, chanting "In Paradise." The bands of the city, who united for the occasion, then began "The Dead March in Saul" and the procession moved along at a slow-march pace. First of all came a cross-bearer and two altar boy, dressed in their white surplices and black cassocks. Following these were nearly 200 little girls belonging to the Convent Schools, walking in double file. Next in order were nearly 40 children of St Joseph's Providence, then 28 Children of Mary. The latter were arrayed in light blue dresses and white muslin head-dress, floating almost down to the ground, while each young lady wore a wreath of white flowers and evergreens upon the crown of the head. As may be easily imagined, these ladies formed one of the leading features of the procession. They were followed by about 200 boys from the Marist Brothers Schools. Then came three Christian Brothers, 30 members of the Hibernian Society adorned in all the insignia of their order, and next between 70 and 80 musicians, representing the various brass and wood instruments. Several members of the St Vincent de Paul Society and the Society of the Blessed Sacrament followed next. Ten or twelve altar boys and five priests immediately proceeded the coffin, which was covered with a large black pall, and surmounted by a wreath of flowers. The rear of the procession was composed of Hibernian brethren, a number of mourning carriages, and the general public. In this manner the cortege proceeded down Willis-street, along Lambton Quay, Bowen-street and the Terrace. The "Dead March in Saul" and other suitable dirges alternated with each other and the whole affair produced a most solemn effect.
The cemetery was reached at ten minutes past four o'clock and the funeral service was rendered by the Very Rev Father Yardin, assisted by Fathers McNamara, Sauzau, Halbwachs, Coffey and Kerrigan. The service being concluded, the Children of Mary approached and cast innumerable wreaths upon the coffin in the grave, the procession was reformed and the assemblage dispersed.
There were inner and an outer coffins, the former lined with zinc and upholstered in white satin and the latter mounted with black and gold. There were constructed of kauri and the lid of the inner one consisted of plate glass.
The plate bore the following inscription:-
Reverendissimus
Josephus Jermiah Purcell O'Reilly,
Pretiosam Mortem obiit
21mo Julie die, A.D 1880. Octogesimo
Aetatis anno completo

Translation
Reverend Father
Joseph Jeremiah Purcell O'Reilly
Died a happy death,
On the 21st day of July
A.D. 1880 aged 80 years


At vespers yesterday the Benediction and the anthem "Blessed are the departed" were sung at the Cathedral
The funeral service was conducted by the Rev Father McNamara, who took for the subject of his discourse the text "I have fought the good fight, and have finished my course; I have kept the faith," 2 Timothy, ch. 4, ver. 2. The text was applied to the life of the deceased priest, whose many virtues and pious example requiem mass was sung by the very Rev Father Yardin, Administrator of the Diocese of Wellington, assisted by the Rev Fathers Coffey, Kerrigan and McNamara and the music was very efficiently rendered by the choir
