SMITH burials - BLUFF, New Zealand

from the SMITH burial database of New Zealand

BLUFF is a town and seaport in the Southland region, on the southern coast of the South Island. It is the southern-most town in New Zealand.

The Bluff area, while itself not settled by Maori, was one of the earliest areas of New Zealand where a European presence became established.
The first ship known to have entered the harbour was the 'Perseverance' in 1813, in search of flax trading possibilities, with the first European settlers arriving in 1823-1824

To answer a request from 'Huddly' on 10-4-2011 can you help with any information on Henry (1841-1904) & Martha (1846-1906) DUCK ?

Their son Thomas Henry Duck was born in Dunedin which is 185km SE of Drybread. Their daughter was born 2 years 9 months previously in New Zealand, but where ?

On 8th February 1904 Mr Henry Duck, one of the oldest residents of Drybread, Central Otago, died at his residence after a long and painful illness, aged 65. The deceased, who was proprietor of the Drybread Hotel, was very well known throughout the district and Otago Central generally

from the SMITH burial database of New Zealand

Palmerston North is the main city of the Manawatu-Wanganui region
The official limits of the city take in rural areas to the south and north-east of the main urban area, extending to the Tararua Ranges and including the town of Ashhurst at the mouth of the Manawatu Gorge. This is a rich and fertile agricultural area

Ngati Rangitane were the local Maori iwi (tangata whenua) living in the area known as Te Ahu-a-Turanga, when a trader, Jack Duff, became the first known European to explore the area in 1830. He came on a whaling ship and explored as far inland as the site of Woodville. He reported his discovery on arrival back to Porirua.
Colonel Wakefield heard of the potential that the Manawatu had for development and visited in 1840.
In 1846 Charles Hartley, another trader, heard from tangata whenua of a clearing in the forest and he proceeded through the dense bush and forest and discovered it for Europeans

The city was first named "Palmerston", in honour of Viscount Palmerston, a former Prime Minister of Great Britain. The suffix "North was added in 1871 by the Post Office to distinguish the settlement from Palmerston in the South Island, though locals still widely refer to the city simply as Palmerston or "Palmy"
