Henry James UNDERWOOD did not survive the sinking of the SS PENGUIN in Cook Strait ,Wellington 1909

On the evening of 12th February 1909 the Union Company passenger steamer Penguin - a small, 749 ton ship built in 1864, but had been rebuilt - left Picton for Wellington.
The weather was fine. However, by the time it reached open waters at about 8pm, it was dark and the weather had deteriorated, with a strong southerly wind, blacking out every landmark.
Captain Naylor altered the course hoping to ride out the storm until morning. But then the ship struck rocks heavily tearing a hole in the hull.
The raging seas pulled the Penguin clear of the rocks but water poured in through the hole.
The Penguin began sinking in heavy seas off a rugged, isolated stretch of coast.
When the cold seawater flooded into the engine room they hit the hot boilers which resulted in a huge explosion, tearing the ship apart and sending the wreckage to the bottom of the sea.
Only two life boats had been launched but these were swamped. One lifeboat was tipped over by a wave, a woman and young boy were trapped underneath and able to breathe in the air pocket until they were washed ashore. She was the only woman to survive, along with 29 men who had used wooden rafts, drifting for hours.
However most of those using rafts were dashed across razor sharp rocks. Survivors walked kilometres for help. Only 30 of the 105 people who had boarded from Picton that night survived.
It is believed that the ship struck Thoms Rock off Cape Terawhiti after being carried off course by an exceptionally strong flood tide.

The inquiry blamed Captain Francis Edwin Naylor - who was the last to leave the ship, survived - they suspended his certificate for 12 months

One of the passengers who drowned was Henry James UNDERWOOD

Henry was born in 1849 (possibly not in New Zealand)
- he married Harriet Ellen HOUGHTON in New Zealand in 1879

- Henry and Harriet had 2 children:
1880 - Sydney Houghton Houghton
- he married Louise Maude BATLEY in 1903
- Sydney died in Wellingon in 1922 aged 41

1884 - Sophia Ann Mary Ethel Houghton
- she married Lewis QUINLAN in 1911
- Sophia died in Wellington in 1968 aged 84

Lily Emily Annie Dymes BUDGE - born on board the Anne Dymes to Nelson, NZ 1864

Elizabeth Ann BUDGE was born in Godmanchester, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire (120km North of London) in 1843

She was a daughter of Matthew Budge, a labourer, and his wife, Ann CHURCH

In October 1863 she left Gravesend aboard the Anne Dymes bound for Nelson, New Zealand
Elizabeth was pregnant and on 17 January 1864 gave birth to a daughter whom she named Emma Anne Dymes Budge.
The child`s father, William George MAILL/MAILE, had not accompanied Elizabeth on the voyage.
- William was born in 1839 in Alconbury-Cum-Weston, Huntingdon, England. He was a painter, a son of George & Sarah Maile

The Anne Dymes reached Nelson on 2 March 1864.

Four years later, on 4 June 1868, Elizabeth Budge married Robert MacKAY, youngest son of James MacKay of Drumduan, they are not known to have had any children.

Robert and his brother Thomas had bought land in the Whangamoa valley, and Elizabeth joined her husband on the isolated farm at Kokorua, 20 miles from their nearest European neighbour.
The property had no proper road access. A jetty built at the Whangamoa estuary enabled sheep and cattle to be landed from small boats.
Young and resilient, Elizabeth Mackay took pride in making `a nice home fit for anything`.
The isolation was broken by young people from the surrounding district, who enjoyed the ride to Kokorua to visit.

Elizabeth Mackay was a full partner in the farming activities, owning 125 acres in her own right.
Her independent character and strong opinions are exemplified by a letter published in the Colonist in February 1889.
Provoked by the chauvinistic remarks of a Waimea county councillor, Robert Pattie, she argued that a woman should receive the same education as a man, be `undistinguishable from him except in sex, equal to him in rights and votes, and his competitor in all that makes life a fierce and selfish struggle for place and power and money.` She observed of her adversary that `he cannot have seen much more than his potatoe garden in Riwaka.`
`Mr Pattie has the idea of a man that came out of Noah`s ark, and not of the present age, where women take their stand[and] woman`s tongue and woman`s pen strike at woman`s elevation and sharing with man the labor of the education of the world.`
The letter went on to express contemporary feminist belief in woman`s moral superiority and influence on society through her role in the home and family

The website Tasmanian Research is The Colonial Tasmanian Family Links database designed to provide an initial online genealogical research resource. It links individuals with other members of their families living in Tasmania in the 19th Century. The information about individuals is based primarily on records of births, deaths, and marriages and similar events, held in the Archives Office and the linkages have been developed by family historians associated with the former National Heritage Foundation in the late 1990s. The database contains approximately five hundred thousand entries.
Copies of more detailed documentation of many of the events listed in the database are available as are a wide range of records providing genealogical information.
