It is our painful duty to record the death of Mr William Baker Girling, the well known merchant, which occurred early on Sunday morning at his residence in High Street. The sad news came as a great shock to the community, for Mr Girling's death was sudden and unexpected. He had been indisposed for some days, but he was in his business premises as late as one o'clock on Saturday afternoon. There he complained of feeling unwell, and left the shop for his house.

Evening Post, 26 April 1899 DEATH of WILLIAM'S FATHER
We regret to announce the death of Captain Hercules Anderson, father of Dr Anderson, of this town, which occurred this morning at an early hour at his residence in Walter Street. Captain Anderson, who has been marine superintendent of the Shaw, Savill and Albion Shipping Company for the last fifteen years, was well-known in Dunedin and Christchurch, his home being situated at the latter place, He had been in ill-health for some time past and only arrived in Blenheim at the beginning of this month, having been ordered by his medical adviser to make his home here for a time in the hope that the change would be for the benefit of his health. Up to within a few months ago Captain Anderson enjoyed the very best of health, and he had rarely experienced a day's illness. Recently, however, a form of liver complaint had made serious inroads on his constitution, and it was to seek medical advice from his son, Dr Anderson, who is in partnership with Dr Cleghorn in Blenheim, that he was visiting that place. The family will have much sympathy in their bereavement.

Captain Hercules Anderson, Marine Superintendent to the Shaw, Saville and Albion Company, died early this morning at the age of 55. Deceased arrived in Blenheim at the beginning of the month intending to reside here for some time for the benefit of his health.
The news of the death of Captain H. Anderson this morning came as a shock to his many friends in shipping and commercial circles. Up to within a few months ago Captain Anderson enjoyed the very best health, and he had rarely experienced a day's illness. Recently, however, a form of liver complaint had made serious inroads on his constitution, and it was to seek medical advice from his son, Dr Anderson, who is in partnership with Dr. Cleghorn in Blenheim, that he was visiting that place. A few days ago he was reported to have much improved in health after a serious operation. The deceased was a native of Forfarshire, and had served his apprenticeship to the sea on the coast of Scotland. He was employed in the Albion Shipping Co's service until it merged into the present Shaw, Savill and Albion line, and in the latter's employ had command of a number of vessels. Later, his employers recognising his business and other abilities, appointed him to succeed the late Captain Anderson was a good seaman, thoroughly well liked and trusted by his employers and those serving below him, and respected by the public with whom he daily came in contact.
His wife pre-deceased him many years ago. He leaves three sons and two daughters. Captain Anderson and his family made a trip to the Old Country during the Queen's Jubilee year, and he returned then apparently in good health. The flags of the Harbour Board, the vessels in harbour and at the Port and Shipping Offices, and at the principal business houses in Lyttelton, were at half-mast today

Dr Anderson of Blenhein and Dr Morrison of Greymouth will act as Health Officers in their districts under the superintendence of Dr Frengely

Nelson Evening Mail, 27 May 1903 WILLIAM as Acting District Health Officer
Dr Frengley (District Health Officer for Nelson-Westland-Marlborough Districts) who is at present in Wellington, is of the opinion that the consumption of oysters in this locality, has added largely to the cause of so many cases of enteric fever in Nelson. He therefore instructed Dr Anderson (Acting District Health Officer for Marlborough) to investigate the storage-beds of oysters which are on the Boulder Bank within the Nelson Harbour. Dr Anderson comes to the conclusion that the amount of contamination, which was found amongst these oyster localities, is quite enough to convince him that the oysters themselves have been receiving foul matter

At 4.26 yesterday afternoon, a fire occurred in a five-roomed brick cottage, 20 Westwood terrace, off Salisbury street, occupied by four old age pensioners named Robert Kingan (aged 84), James Renshaw (78), Frank Smith (65) and Emmanuel Gustafson (74). The outbreak was due to the upsetting of a kerosene stove, on which the evening meal was being cooked, and in a few moments the building, an old one, was a mass of flames. Kingan was rather severely singed about the face in making his escape, but Renshaw was more unfortunate, his retreat being cut off, and only the timely arrival of the Fire Brigade averted a tragedy

It appeared that Munday, who is an inmate of the Ashburton Old Men's Home, was having a holiday at Sumner, and was sleeping off the effects of drink on the Lyttelton Road. The accused saw him and as he was an old decrepit man, they relieved him of his possessions. Both pleaded "Not guilty" but Constable Hampton gave evidence that he found Munday on the road, and heard his story, and that Munday afterwards identified accused.

... thanks to the message from Erin on 3-1-2011, I will attempt to work out the marriages I had mixed up
Erin wrote: .. My grandmother was Fiona Marion MacClure Walker who married Albert Victor King. However my Alberts parents were John Thomas King & Elizabeth Hudson. John Kings parents were Thomas King & Ann Belton. I believe you have the wrong Albert connection in your line ...

** there were 5 Albert Victor King mariages in NZ between 1889-1929
- they were:
1/ - 1889 - Albert Victor King (1858-1937)
- married Alice Elizabeth HOMES (1864-1902)
- they had a son, Lauritz Victor King who died of wounds in France 1916. At that time Albert & Alice lived in Tahunanui, Nelson

2/ - 1904 - Albert Victor King
- Albert REmarried to Jemima ESSON (1867-1945)
- they are buried together Plot 125, Block 007 at Seaview Rd Cemetery, Nelson. Not known where Alice was buried

3/ - 1911 - Albert Victor King (1884-1919)
- married Ann PATTINSON

4/ - 1926 - Albert Victor King (1894-1964)
- married Fiona Marion MacGlure WALKER (1905-1990)

5/ - 1929 - Albert Victor King
- married Emily Clara May HAWKEN (1875-1970)

There were only 3 Albert Victor King born in NZ (which of course means little except there was also only 3 deaths BUT one of them was not born in NZ!!!)
This makes for probable remarriages for some (see above)

The years of their births and parents were:
* 1884 - 1919 Albert Victor King
- son of John William KING & Hester Spicer LOVELL
- married Ann PATTINSON in 1911
ALBERT died aged 34 and buried Plot 026, Block 09 at Wakapuka Cemetery, Nelson

* 1894 - 1964 Albert Victor King
- son of John Thomas KING & Elizabeth HUDSON
ALBERT (we know) married Fiona Marion MacClure WALKER in 1926

* 1890 - ? Albert Victor King
- son of Thomas & Anstay ? KING

AND an Albert Victor King (not registered as born in NZ)
1858 - 1937 (see 1)

any help would be appreciated

Auckland Star, 20 February 1896 - Mr Joshua Ockleston
Mr Joshua Ockleston, one of the oldest and most respected settlers in the Hobsonville district, died suddenly yesterday. It appears that he was engaged on his farm as usual, and while lifting sheep into a cart he complained of a pain in his chest. He was immediately removed to his house, when all possible was done for him, but he expired in less than an hour. Deceased was 60 years of age. He was an active member of the Hobsonville Presbyterian Church, and frequently conducted the services, while he was also Superintendent of the Sunday-school. Deceased also took an interest in temperance and worked generally for the good of the district. His sudden end caused a shock to the whole district, for he was loved by all whom he came in contact with. He leaves behind him a widow and three grown-up sons. Deceased was a native of Cheshire, England
Auckland Star, 5 November 1929 - Mrs Elizabeth Ockleston
EIGHTY-FIVE YEARS RESIDENT - A very old inhabitant of Hobsonville, Mrs Elizabeth Ockleston, died on November 3 at the residence of her son, Mr R. Ockleston. She was born in Auckland 85 years ago. Her parents were the late Mr and Mrs Sims, who were among the hardy band of settlers who came from Scotland (on the Duchess of Argyle in 1842) was then a very small place, and in order to provide work for the new arrivals some of the men were employed cutting down Shortland Street at the magnificent rate of 2/6 per day (25 cents). It was not long before they ceased to require work found by the Government. Miss Sims was married in 1873 to the late Mr Joshua Ockleston, who had then been farming for some years at Hobsonville with his brother. Mr Ockleston died 33 years ago and his widow, left with a young family to rear, faced her task with that fortitude that seems to have been a feature of the women who came to make a hone in New Zealand in the early days. Mrs Ockleston was the last of the first generation of the Sims family, her brother, the late Mr Robert Sims, of Franklin, who only died recently (1842-1926), having been well over 80 years (84). The following children survive their parents:- Messrs J. Ockleston of the New Lynn Brick and Tile Co., Richard Ockleston of Hobsonville and W. Ockleston.
The funeral took place at Hobsonville, and was very largely attended, the Presbyterian Home Missioner, Mr E. A. Rimmer, conducting the service

The Sydney Morning Herald, 4 November 1902 DEATH of Mr GEORGE CATER
BULLI, Tuesday - Much regret is expressed at the news cabled from New Zealand of the death of Mr George Cater, manager of South Bulli and Bellambi Mines, who left here about ten days ago to recruit his health after a severe illness. His wife and children accompanied him.
The Sydney Morning Herald, 5 November 1902
Word was received here to-day that Mr. George Cater, manager of South Bulli and Bellambi Colliery had died at Auckland. Mr. Cater who was between 35 and 40 years of age had not enjoyed good health for some time past, and a couple of weeks ago his medical adviser ordered him complete rest and change. He decided to visit New Zealand. The news of his death naturally came us a great shock to his parents, the directors of the collieries of which he had charge, and his many friends. Mr. Cater was a prominent member of the Woonona Bowling Club and a member of the Wollongong Masonic lodge. He was one of the managers who worked all night on rescue work in connection with the Mount Kembla disaster, and his efforts on that occasion were very highly spoken of.
His widow is the fourth daughter of Mr Phillip Pryor and sister to the present Mayor
South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus, 8 November 1902
On Tuesday the sad news reached Woonona by cable from Auckland, of the death of Mr George Cater, manager of the South Bulli and Woonona collieries. He had been ailing for some time from a serious affection of the ear, and was in a very weak state when last Monday week he left with Mrs Cater and the family (two), for a trip to Auckland, where a sister resides. On Monday a cable came through stating he was not expected to live, and on Tuesday the news of his death, so far nothing more is known. Mr Cater came from Burwood, Newcastle, to this district to the management of the Woonona mine, and has been here about 11 years. Of Him it can be sincerely said that he had the esteem of all his friends, and the respect of all as a straight-forward man. His father, Mr T. Cater, took his place when he left for the trip. Mr Cater was about 34 years of age and was treasurer of the local Masonic Lodge
George married Harriet Helena Pryor (1866-1944) in Greta, NSW in 1893

CLARK - On July 4, after a long and painful illness, Wilhemina, the beloved wife of William Clark, of Morningside, late of Rehia, Northern Wairoa. The funeral will leave her late residence at 2p.m. on Friday for Purewa Cemetery

New Zealand Herald, 27 August 1932
One of New Zealand's oldest colonists, Mr William Clark, died yesterday at his home, Woodlands, Rehia, North Auckland, in his 95th year. He had spent nearly 90 years in the Dominion and was particularly well known in the North, where he had lived for 80 years.
Born in Halifax, Yorkshire, Mr. Clark arrived at Nelson with his parents in 1842 (sic) after a voyage of six months in the ship Indus, the second emigrant ship to go to Nelson. The family stayed in Nelson four years and then moved to Auckland, staying at the Ship Inn, then the only hotel in the town. Mr Clark's first employment was at a rope works in Mechanics Bay, where he worked 12 hours a day and six days a week for four shillings and sixpence. At the age of 15 he went pit-sawing with his father in the bush at Northern Wairoa. The trip from Auckland to Northern Wairoa took five days, Mr Clark and his father having to walk from Riverhead to Helensville and then travel on a whaleboat to Omana. In 1860 the Government opened the first land for selection scheme and Mr Clark's father bought a large section. A few years later Mr Clark moved to Whakahara, where he opened a general store and butchery. In 1864 he married Miss Wilhemina Paton, of Northern Wairoa and in 1886 he bought a farm at Rehia where he resided until his death. His home was often the stopping place of travellers and cattle dealers.
His wife died in 1906 and his father in 1909. Mr Clark is survived by a large family. The funeral will take place to-morrow at Purewa Cemetery.

WILLIAM & WILHEMINA are buried Plot 62, Row 29, Block D at Purewa cemetery

ANZACs at GLENCORSE WOOD September 1917

Barrier Miner (Broken Hill, NSW) Tuesday 25 September 1917

The following cables are from sources other than "Toe Miner's" special service:-
London, Sunday
Mr. Percival Phillips, war correspondent for the "Daily Express," emphasised that the Australians were in the centre of the attack, and had much heard fighting between the Boulers railway and the Menin road before they cleared Glencorse Wood and Nonne Bosschen, planted the Commonwealth flag on Anzac Redoubt, and drove nearly half-way through Polygon Wood, yet nearly all their programme was fulfilled to the timetable. They "went over" at 5.40 o'clock amid a heavy shellfire, for distress signals had called all the German batteries into action.

The barrage did not check the first waves at Glencorse Wood; but it caught some stretcher-bearers and wounded men behind the advance line of assaulting troops. Mr. Phillips proceeds:-"Fifty Germans surrendered just inside the thicket; but a redoubt on the edge of the wood enfiladed our infantry until flanking bombers put it out of action. The appearance and grit of the Australians utterly surprised the Germans. Little groups of enemy snipers, crouching in the shellholes, ran at the sight of the slouch-hatted men stripped of their packs, but festooned with bombs, who moved lightly through the mire, with bayonets poised, nonchalant and deliberate, offering sudden death with a smile. Some of the Huns were caught like rats and fought wildly until they fell.
The garrisons of the redoubts clung bravely to their machine guns and put up a fight, which the Australians appreciated. These determined men from overseas never doubted they would reach their goal.

After hoisting the flag on Anzac Redoubt, and traversing Glencorse and Nonne Bosschen, they entered open ground 400 yards broad, between them and Polygon Wood. All these were in the hands of the Australians by 11 o'clock. The flag was raised on Anzac Redoubt before 10. During a halt before Polygon Wood, an Australian officer, fearing his men might be bored, sent up Tuesday's newspapers, pictorial journals, and cigarettes. Through the barrage the Australians sat calmly in their shellholes and broken trenches, reading and smoking until the order was given to readvance."

Another correspondent writes:- "The Australians who stormed the Anzac Redoubt screened their standard-bearer who planted the Commonwealth Flag on the summit, his comrades wildly cheering the act. I met a number of Australian wounded because they ran ahead of our barrage line. The Australian lads, who were in their most perfect form, had rested since the hard days of Bullecourt and Noreuil. They had not lost any quantity since their great epics of Gallipoli and Pozieres. When we heard they were going to attack Polygon Wood we knew they would get it if human courage could, for the Australians are not easily denied if they set their mind on a thing. They have grim passion at such time, despite all their boyishness, but they are free and easy, always, even on the battlefield, although they are rather impatient at checks and restraint. The spectacle of Australians reading newspapers and smoking under the screaming shells was the strangest thing that ever happened in any great battle, and greatly surprised our airmen who saw them. Then, after a two hours' wait, they flung away their cigarettes, and passed on to the assault on Polygon. Thursday's great attack proved that the new German method of holding lines lightly in blockhouses, with reserves behind for counter-attacks, has broken down. If the Teutons revert to the old system of strong front lines they will suffer as they did at the Somme.

The reserve German divisions which were brought up in buses had a dreadful time. Their counter-attacks were particularly fierce against the Highlanders on the Zonnebeke-road (on the Australians' left). The Highlanders were driven back for a while, but the Scottish rifle fire then broke every attack. The German storm troops six times came on with much determination, and six times their waves were broken up. Finally three German battalions drove against the Scots' Corps at Delva Farm and Rose House. The Highlanders rallied at 8 o'clock in the evening, and swept the Germans out and away. Mr. Gibbs; emphasizes the fearful hammering inflicted by the British bombardment.

At least 50 per cent of the German prisoners are wounded. Many Germans around Polygon Wood and Glencorse Copse, where the Australians fought, were buried in the shellholes between the blockhouses, and the blockhouses themselves were smashed up or so battered that the garrisons became dazed and demoralised."
