A PORTEOUS family of DUNEDIN New Zealand

A Porteous family of Dunedin New Zealand

.. (there were a number of different Porteous families living in Dunedin around the same time. I have concentrated on this one for the moment)

William Peter PORTEOUS (1848-1910) was born on 11th May 1848 in St Cuthberts, Midlothian, Scotland
- he was a son of Alexander PORTEOUS & Margaret THOMSON
- some of his known siblings were:
10 Sept 1846 Alexander Porteous
12 May 1850 John Murray Porteous
23 Oct 1852 Archibald Porteous
27 Apirl 1857 Margaret Jane Porteous
- William married Elizabeth Emma NICOLL (1850-1933) in Scotland in 1873

- William was about 26 at time of immigration, therefore emigration was about 1874 (yet to find ship)
- they lived in a house in South Dunedin which was destroyed by fire in 1908
- they were living in 71 Glasgow St South Dunedin in 1910

... William died as a result of a fractured skull obtained in a railway accident when he tried to alight from the train at St Leonard's Station before the train stopped
- he is buried in Plot 53, Block 16 at Andersons Bay Cemetery
... Elizabeth Emma died on 11th February 1933
- she was living in Benton St Dunedin
- she is buried with William

Their 6 New Zealand born children were:

23 July 1875 - Alexander William PORTEOUS

SAUNDERS William, 2 Aug 1905 aged 35
- buried Grave 85, Block F
- William was a Rabbiter
- he lived in Kaitoki, Dannevirke
Bush Advocate, 7 August 1905 SAUNDERS - At Dannevirke on Wednesday, August 2nd (by drowning), William, youngest son of the late Joseph Saunders, of Kaikoura, aged 35. Kaikoura paper please copy
Bush Advocate, 7 August 1905 DROWNING FATALITY Yesterday morning it was reported to the police that the body of a man had been found in the Tapuata stream a few yards below the ford at Stanley-street, and upon investigation it was identified as that of William Saunders, a rabbiter on Kaitoki station, who had been reported to be missing since Thursday last. Saunders was a single man, aged about 35 years, and for the past 18 months he had been employed between the Kaitoki and Tahoraiti stations. Shortly after breakfast on Tuesday morning he left Kaitoki and rode into town, where he stayed until Wednesday night, when at about 10 o'clock he got his horse from Messrs Hunter and Seymour's stables, and rode away to Tahoraiti. He was accompanied as far as the railway crossing by Henry Klee, head shepherd at Kaitoki, who left him there and returned to get his own horse. This was the last seen of Saunders alive, and the rest can only be surmised. As the night was very dark and wet it may be that after going a certain distance he decided to return to town and got on to the wrong road taking the Stanley-street route instead of Rawhiti-street, or it may be that instead of riding straight on he had unconsciously tutned round. At all events his horse turned up riderless at Kaitoki early on Thursday morning, and a search was immediately made. It was at first thought that he had gone to Palmerston bu inquiry there, and the discovery of the body have dissipated this idea.
... When found the body was firmly caught by a snag which fact probably prevented deceased from recovering himself after he was plunged into the water. An inquest was held at the Junction Hotel, this afternoon before Mr T. Lindsay Buick, district coroner and the following jury;- F. E. McKenzie, G. Beckett, R. J. Hunter, G. Newett, William Henderson and A. W. Collett

Bush Advocate, 12 April 1904
... Information was received by Sergeant Cruickshank this morning that a man named George Pawson, a partner in a sawmill in the Weber district, has been missing since yesterday morning. From what we can learn of the circumstances, it appears that, contrary to his custom, Pawson after breakfast yesterday morning, instructed his mate not to yoke the bullocks up, saying that he would take the gun and go and look for some pheasants. He then left camp and has not since been heard of. He was dressed in his ordinary working clothes at the time, and nothing unusual has been noticed in the demeanour of late, but a few days ago he sent in with one of the carters a bag containing some personal trinkets which has given rise to the suspicion that it may be a case of suicide.

... It is with deep regret that we today have to record the death of Mrs Ole Olsen, which took place at the hospital early yesterday morning. Mrs Olsen, who was a daughter of Mrs Ries, of Awariki, and a sister of Pastor Ries, entered the hospital on Monday last, when it was found necessary to perform an operation which revealed such a serious condition of affairs that little hope could be entertained of her ultimate recovery, a position which came as a great surprise to her husband and friends. Mrs Olsen came out to New Zealand with Pastor Ries in 1891, and eventually married Mr O. Olsen in 1895. Since then she has lived with her husband at their place at South Norsewood, known as Hill Top Farm. Deceased always took a very active part in church and mission work, as well as being a prominent supporter of the local Sunday School, and her death will be keenly felt in the religious circles of Norsewood. In addition to her husband and the aboved named relations, the late Mrs Olsen leaves three sisters: Mrs A. N. Bertsen of Waipatiki, Mrs Peter Berntsen of Awariki and Miss Ries of South Norsewood.
