HUGH Kenyon died 26 June 1916
Colonist, 27 June 1916
... KENYON - On June 26th, 1916, at his late residence, Thirpe, Hugh, beloved husband of Susan E. Kenyon, aged 83 years. [Wellington papers please copy]
... The ranks of the hardy band of pioneer settlers of this district were further thinned yesterday by the death of Mr Hugh Kenyon, J.P., of Thorpe. Deceased, who was born in Scotland in the year 1833, came out to Australia in the early fifties. He at once went to the gold diggings, which were then in full swing, and worked there with more or less success until he was attracted to New Zealand by the Gabriel's Gully rush. In the year 1861 he came to this district, and took up an unimproved farm at Dovedale, which he developed into splendid property. The late Mr Kenyon took a keen interest in all matters which affected the welfare of the district, and served on the school committee and road board for many years. Deceased, who was highly respected in the district, leaves a widow and grown-up family of three sons and six daughters, viz., Mrs George Kinzett, Awa, Mrs H. B. Thorn, Awa, Mr David Kenyon, Ross, Mrs J. Mead, Greymouth, Mrs H. Hawkins, Collingwood, Mr Frank Kenyon, Bennett's, Mrs Killeen, Westport, Mrs W. O. Hewetson, Martinborough, Mr Arthur Kenyon, Thorpe; also thirty-four grandchildren. The deepest sympathy will be felt with the relatives in the loss they have sustained. Only recently Mr and Mrs Kenyon celebrated their golden wedding. The occasion was marked by a large family gathering, and the aged couple were recipients of presentations from the family and friends

Colonist, 22 July 1916
... In the Supreme Court at Wellington on Tuesday last, in Chambers, on the application of Mr A. C. Maginnity, His Honour the Chief Justice granted probate of the will of the late Hugh Kenyon to Henry Bishop Thorn (son-in-law) and Arthur Alexander Kenyon (son), the executors named in the will

Charles EMPSON - Nelson New Zealand 1842

In 1849 the settlers of Nelson, New Zealand were dissatisfied at the way the country was being run by one man in distant Auckland. They wanted an immediate introduction of Representative Government into the Southern Settlements of New Zealand.
They therefore took up a petition to submit to Parliament.
It was signed by 392 of the local men


CHARLES EMPSON arrived into Wellington in May 1842 aged 22 (although I can't find him on the May 1842 passenger lists of the CLIFFORD or the LONDON)
- He married Louisa Howard in Nelson on 24-2-1852.

They had 7 children:

- Henry Fredric Empson 12-2-1853 who died aged 12 on 24-10-1865 from falling off his pony

- Charles Clendon Empson born 25-1-1855 in Nelson, married Adeline Young, died 5-8-1938 in Richmond

- Ellen Fanny Empson born 30-2-1856, married Francis Gould, son of a preacher

- George Augustus Empson born 14-3-1858 in Wairau, was chief postmaster in Havelock South, moved to Te Awamutu with his wife Jane Hughes where he died in 1944

- Stanley Howard Empson born 4-4-1860 in Wairau, he married Mary Catherine MacDonald in Auckland, he died in Ngaruawahia, Waikato 23-6-1937

- Annie Louise Empson born 2-6-1862 in Marlborough, she married John Morris Pratt in 1882. They moved to Holbrrok NSW where she died Nov. 1944

- Francis Slocombe Empson born 15-7-1864 in Marlborough, died 1903 aged 39.

Charles as owner, along with David Herd, as manager, planted the first Marlborough vineyard. Charles died soon after the first harvest but Herd went on to win prize after prize for the red muscatel wine. Charles great grandson, Neil Empson, settled in Italy and became a noted exporter of Italian wines.

Charles is on the 1852 Jurors list as a merchant living in Bridge Street
He is on the 1853 Nelson Electoral Roll as a 'merchant'

Can you help with a 'story' for any of the other petitioners who were settlers of Nelson in the early 1800s (see at link)
