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

NOTES on TINUI
* When the people of Tinui went to church on the morning of April 25 1916, to hold an Anzac service and later erected a cross on Mt Maunsell, they would have hardly known how significant their actions would become. It was the first known Anzac memorial service in New Zealand

Hugh Belliss, TINUI, Wairarapa

Wairarapa Daily Times, 20 Oct 1905
TE NUI NOTES

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

Hugh married Louisa Groves (1849-1931) in 1871
* Louisa was born in Carisbrooke, Isle of Wight, 9th child of John Groves (1897-1892) and Ann Peach (1808-1861).

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.

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

TIMELINE
6 Nov 1911 WORKPLACE FATALITY. Ferdinand SCHWASS, employed on Charles Managh's farm at Turakina went to get some sheep from the other side of Turakina river taking a horse and dray, thinking it was not dangerous. 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
