Cecil Augustus Victor Hotezzi De CORTANDO - Oldenburg Germany to Woodville New Zealand

I would like some info on Cecil Augustus de Cortando and any children, siblings etc also where his wife Elizabeth is buried.

He was Baron von Blaramberg but changed that later to C.A. Curtis

Cecil was born in 1843/46 in Oldenburg, Germany and went to New Zealand in 1867 - do you know which ship and who with?
He was the 9th son of Reginald Count Hotezzi de Cortando (Baron von Blaramberg, or Blaremberg) and Vittoria Alma Cortando.

He married Elizabeth Mantel in 1869.

Cecil and Elizabeth VON BLARAMBERG were school teachers in Wellington, Wanganui and Palmerston North.

Cecil von Blaramberg - under the name C A CURTIS - was the principal of a private school, Te Aro Grammer School, in Wellington from 1870 until about 1880.
He was later the headmaster of two state schools - Matarawa, near Wanganui - from about 1880 to 1889 - and Terrave End, in Palmerston North - from 1889 to 1893.

Elizabeth VON BLARAMBERG - under her maiden name of Elizabeth MANTEL - was Assistant Mistress at the TAITA SCHOOL from about 1868 to 1870
She was also a teacher of music and art to private pupils at Matarawa. However she is best remembered as the Principal of the Carow Ladies College - also known as the Carow Girls Collegiate School, Palmerston North, which operated from 1891 until about 1901.
This school was a large two-storey building in Carow Street providing accomodation for boarding pupils as well as serving as the von Blaramberg family residence.
Cecil assisted his wife at this school.

After the closure of the Carow Collegiate School and the sale of the Carow Street property (probably as a result of financial difficulties), Cecil and Elizabeth lived in a succession of small rented houses in Palmerston North.
They continued to operate a small school from each of these houses until about the time of World War One.


He died on 27th August 1921 and is buried in the Old Gorge Cemetery in Woodville, New Zealand next to a son -
Regionald de Cortando who was born in New Zealand in 1871 and died aged 25 in the Club Hotel in Woodville in 1896.

Another son, Claude Douglas Blaramberg, (he dropped the 'von' when he went to war) was killed in action aged 33 in Somme, France on 10 Dec. 1916..

Do you know of other children?

PETITION to Parliament from the SETTLERS of NELSON, NEW ZEALAND - 1849

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 - I have found a number of names that appear twice, but there is no way to know now (nearly 160 years later) if there were in fact that many men with the same name...

The objective was to show who was living in Nelson in 1849 to help those who suspect they had ancestors there at that time.

Thomas Herbert DODD - Taita, New Zealand

There is a Thomas Herbert Dodd buried alone (as the only Dodd in the cemetery) in plot 74 of the Christ Church Taita Cemetery, New Zealand.

Very few Dodds in New Zealand back in the 19th century.
I would like to know if he was the son of Moses Dodd born 1780 in Berkshire, England who married Elizabeth Newton and had 10 children of which 2, or possibly 3, sons emigrated to New Zealand
(not known at this time which ship),
they were:
William Henry Dodd b.1818
Thomas Dodd b.1824
Richard Newton Dodd b.1829

OR was he the Thomas Dodd that maried Clara Helen Culleton as in allycat's journal on this site
IRELAND->ENGLAND->NEW ZEALAND CULLERTON family

If you know who he was, please leave a message
