Evening Post, 10 Sep 1900
It was a happy thought which led His Excellency the Governor to invite the veterans of the Imperial Army and navy to dine at Government House, and the day chosen for the reception - the anniversary of the Battle of Sebastopol - was an appropriate occasion. It was a remarkable coincidence that about one third of the number of the soldiers who on Saturday responded to the call to fall-in on the lawn should have been veterans of the Crimea.
Punctually at 2 o'clock all sorts and conditions of men, but all wearing decorations on their breasts, met at the rendezvous, and were in due course ushered into the corridor. Some apologised to the orderly for having omitted to bring their invitation cards, whispering into his private ear - "As a matter of fact, you know, the missus kept it as a great memento!" The "That's quite right!" of the orderly came as a great relief to the nervous, who had feared that there was no admittance without a ticket. But they found that the silver badge of courage worn on the breast carried them throughout the afternoon.
The next ordeal for the nervous old warriors was hearing their names loudly called by the receiving Aide-de-Camp (Hon. C. Hill-Trevor) on their entry into the reception room, where Lady Ranfurly shook hands with all the guests and passed them along to Lord Ranfurly, who expressed his pleasure at having them with him that day and then introduced each soldier and sailor to his two daughters. The young ladies in turn greatly delighted the time-worn members of the party by helping them to their seats. The Hon. Mr Butler (Hon. Aide-de-Camp) also assisted in receiving and placing the guests.
Looking down the table from the Governor's left hand, the only two New Zealand Cross and their wearers in the assembly were conspicuous. The decoration is handsome and the men caught the eye also. Sergt. Sam Austin (of Wanganui) ... (more at link) and Private Tom Adamson ... (more at link)
There were quite a number of men at the gathering who had taken part in the disastrous engagement at Te Ngutu-o-te-Manu ('the beak of the bird') in which Von Tempsky and several other brace officers, as well as many of the rank and file, lost their lives ... more at top links
Excellent music was provided throughout the afternoon. Minifie's Orchestra contributed a programme of martial airs ...
During an interval in the proceedings the whole party adjourned to the lawn, where the Colonial, the Crimean, the China, the Kaffir and the Indian Mutiny veterans were photographed in separate groups. The afternoon was bright and sunshine, the Government House party made the hearts of the veterans glad with the warm welcome extended to them and the hands of the host and hostess were shaken in farewell, the soldiers of the Queen assured their sovereign's representative that Sebastopol Day would remain a red-letter day so long as memory lasted

Of the 200 invitations issued by Lord Ranfurly, 136 were accepted. A number of the guests came into Wellington by last night's and this morning's trains from all parts of the Island - from New Plymouth on the west and Napier on the east coast.
In the list of invitations given here-under, some of the records of the old soldiers have not been obtained and the initials "NZ" after the names mean that the veteran wears the New Zealand medal. There are no less that fifty Crimean veterans on the list, which will be found to include a few names of men who do not wear medals.
The following is the list:-
(my additions will be obvious)

On his 25th engagement he received four bullets in his body yet brought out the badly wounded. He saw Von Tempsey killed.

* Hon Dr Morgan Stanislaus GRACE (1837-1903), M.L.C., Staff Assistant Surgeon, C.M.G., NZ. OBITUARY of Dr Grace, New Zealand Tablet, 23 April 1903 The death of the Hon, Dr, Grace, M.L.C., C.M.G., which occurred at his residence, Wellington, on Sunday morning, was not wholly unexpected, as it had been well known that he had been seriously ill for a considerable time, little hope being entertained for his recovery for some weeks . Nevertheless the enws of the sad event came as a shock to the public not alone for Wellington, but of the whole Colony, for the genial doctor had been so long identified with the public life of New Zealand that his name was held to be synonymous with purity of motives and independence of action ... The late Dr Grace was born in Clonmel, County Tipperary, on February 28, 1837, his father being Mr James Grace, of Sheffield House, Queens County ... He arrived in Auckland in 1860 as surgeon to the 65th Regiment ... He was appointed principal medical officer to the New Zealand forces in 1865 ... In recognition of his services to the Catholic Church, of which he was a devoted member, Dr Grace was, in 1890, mad a Count of the Holy Roman Empire ... For many years he was almost the sole owner of the Wellington Tramways, which he disposed of to the City Council a year or two ago ... He was also a forceful writer, having at one time or another done some good journalistic work ... Had his professional duties permitted, he would have undoubtedly, at one time or another, attained the rank of Minister of the Crown but it is doubtful if he would have been a success, as he was too candid and sincere to please either Government or Oppositoin ...

* Charles JEFFCOTT, Wanganui, 57th, Crimea, Turkish, NZ Wanganui Herald, 24 Oct 1904 CRIMEAN VETERANS TO THE EDITOR. Sir,- I am very sorry to say, sir, that there are only a few old veterans left to take part in the re-union of the soldiers and sailors who served in the Crimean War. Fifty years have passed since those memorable days, and we have never yet had a re-union. A few of the old Diehards have responded, and I am looking forward to having a good time on the 5th of November-Inkerman Day. The few old veterans who have passed both bullets are going to have a dinner and a talk over old times and such memorable events as the charge of the Light Brigade, the Battle of Inkerman; the Storming of Sebastopol, and the hardships of the first winter in the Crimea, when thousands perished for the want of food and clothing, or were frozen to death. Memorable is the charge of the Light and. Heavy Brigades at Balaclava. I was on outlying picquet duty on the River Chernaya, with James McCauley. We gave the alarm that the Cossacks were on us, and when daylight came on the morning of the 25th Sir Colin Campbell, with his Highland Brigade, was waiting for them. We were engaged half an hour before the cavalry came from Lord Raglan. Trusting all the veterans that can possibly come will communicate with me without further delay - I am, etc., CHARLES JEFFCOTT, Late 57th.

He was the third son of Te Rotohenga (also called Winipere) from her second marriage to Hira Te Ota. Through his mother's first marriage, Tomoana was a younger half-brother of Karaitiana Takamoana and Te Meihana Takihi. His whakapapa links him to Ngāti Hawea as his principal hapu, however he was also connected to Ngāti Hinetahu, Ngāti Te Rehunga, and Ngāti Hori ... In 1866, he and other Māori leaders joined forces with the Hawke's Bay Division of the Colonial Defence Force to repel an attack by the Pai Mārire at the Battle of Ōmarunui. Then in 1868 he took command of a contingent of Māori troops from the Heretaunga-Tamatea region and supported the government's pursuit of Te Kooti up the Ruakituri River toward Wairoa. In Dec 1868 he fought at the Battle of Makaretu, helping to repel Te Kooti's incursion into the Poverty Bay area. In 1869, he again led troops in pursuit of Te Kooti, who was now being pursued in the area around Taupō ... For his campaigns against Te Kooti, Tomoana (who had been commissioned as a captain of militia) received a sword of honour
* Capt Thomas Errington TANNER (1868-1951), late of Fifth Contingent in South Africa, Matabele. Served with the No 13 Company (Wellington, Nelson and West Coast, South Island sections). One of 10 children of Thomas Tanner (1830-1918) & Julia Denton from Wiltshire who arrived in NZ 1849, taking up a large run 'Milbourne', on the Ruataniwha Plains, Hawkes Bay. Capt Tanner was attacked with dysentery and fever at Beira and was invalided home on the 'Gothic' in Aug - a month before he attended this event. There was a party given by a large number of members of both branches of the Legislature, held at Ballamy's, Wellington, to meet the invalided members of the Contingent. Capt Tanner, in replying for the party, referred to the enthusiasm with which they had been received and said he did not know what more the people could have done if they had brought Kruger back with them. As for himself, he felt like an imposter, for he had been invalided at Beira, while the others of the party have been in the fighting ranks. He is named on the South African War Memorial at Napier

The AXUP family in New Zealand
James Axup (1808-1887) was born in Yorkshire, England. He married Mary Cooke (1813-1881) in Yorkshire on 26 Jan 1836. They both died in Yorkshire.
There were a number of children but their oldest, Aaron 'Henry' Axup is the only one found to date to have emigrated to NZ...

1836 - 1895 Aaron 'Henry' Axup
born in Rawcliffe, Yorkshire
married Fanny Dyer (1833-1919) in Preston, Lancashire in 1857

Henry arrived into Lyttelton 26 Sep 1862 on the barque 'Mersey'. However, the passenger report suggests he came on his own. Read obituary of his son Walter below which says he (Walter) arrived on the 'Ben Ledi' in 1877. Did Fanny and the children arrive later?
* longer research has me thinking he may have originally come over as one of the Imperial Soldiers sent to fight during the NZ land wars. Troops were sent at various times between 1845-1847 and between 1860-1866. His timeline seems to agree with this

Lyttelton Times, 4 Feb 1864 - TAKING OVER BUSINESS
Miss Skillicorn, in retiring from business, desires to thank her friends and the public for the liberal patronage and support she has received for so many years at their hands and begs to solicit a continuance of the same for her successors, Messrs Axup, Steward and Bell, whom, as men of experience and business connections, she can confidently recommend to their favour... Colombo street, Jan 23, 1864
... Messrs Axup, Steward and Bell, in re-opening the business lately carried on by Miss Skillicorn beg to announce that they are making alterations with a view of rendering the premises more convenient and spacious and desire, by keeping a well-assorted stock, by sell at fair prices, by strict attention to business, and courtesy to customers, to merit a continuance of the support which has so long been given to this establishment. They have made arrangements for a regular supply of the newest ad best goods from the London and other English markets ... Silks, fancy dresses, shawls, parasols, calicoes, prints, sheetings, linens, hosiery, gloves, crinolines &c. Colombo street, Jan 23 1864
.. after a fire destroyed a block of shops along Colombo street in June 1864, they moved their business to a building in Cathedral Square. Tenders were called to build their new store on the corner of Colombo & Hereford streets in July 1864 and they were up and running by Oct in large timber warehouse fitted with plate-glass windows of a considerable size. Attached to the warehouse was a spacious showroom (the largest in the province), fitted with every convenience and every device to attract the notice of the ladies. There was also three large rooms, suitable for offices, that they rented out

The partnership hitherto existing between the undersigned, trading under the style and title of Axup, Steward and Bell, having been this day dissolved by mutual consent, in so far as the said Henry Axup is concerned. The business will in future be carried on under the firm of Steward and Bell.
All persons indebted to the late firm are requested to pay the same on or before the 1st June next, to Messrs. Steward and Bell, who are empowered to give receipts for the same; and all persons having claims against the same are requested to furnish particulars of the same to Messrs. Steward and Bell, on or before the 1st June next, by whom they will be discharged. Signed, Henry Axup, Charles Stewart Bell, William Jukes Steward. Witness - W. P. Cowishaw, Solicitor

Sep 1866 Henry has unclaimed mail on the West Coast. It had arrived in May and had not been claimed to date of ad. From late 1866 and throughout the years into the 1880s Mr Axup (sometimes written Sergt. Axup) was continuously and regularly travelling on the steamers between Wellington, Nelson, Hawkes Bay, Lyttelton and Wanganui. He always travelled Cabin or Saloon Class as a travelling salesman for Levin & Co of Wellington.

May 1868 Henry Axup, a leaseholder of Colombo Street, Christchurch was taken off the list of names of those entitled to vote because he no longer lived there

Jan 1869 a new boat, over forty feet long, three foot wide, with place for six oars, arrived into Wanganui for Mr Axup and was entered into the upcoming regatta

July 1869 It was shown that Henry Axup of Wellington, owned 1 x £10 share in the 'Auld Reckie Gold Mining Company'

March 1872 he sailed out of Wanganui with Capt Goring, Sergts Carhill & Churchhouse and 18 Armed Constabulary

May 1872 he sailed out of Wellington on the 'Carey' which was for Napier, Poverty Bay, Tauranga and Auckland. He travelled with Capt Thomas, Sergeant and Mrs Shirley, Miss South and eight originals

Feb 1874 on her voyage to Wellington, after her recent repairs in Napier, the 'Rangatira' had a rather peculiar crew. Her machinery not having been inspected by Mr Nancarrow, the Customs authorities would not allow her to carry passengers. This was annoying to say the least. The authorities were inflexible and the case appeared desperate. After some cognition however, it was suggested that by going through the process of signing article and shipping in various capacities, the problem would be solved. No objection was offered and the Rev Mr Sidey was shipped as chaplain, Mr Axup as assistant cook, Mr Mackune, of Good Templar fame and two other gentlemen as extra stewards, a most ingenious solution. On arrival in Wellington they were regularly discharged ..

Nov 1874 at a dinner put on by a number of commercial travellers in a Christchurch hotel, the Chair was occupied by Mr Riddell and the vice chair by Mr Axup

Jan 1875 the Wanganui Herald related that Wairoa would soon be able to enjoy the luxury of listening to the sweet notes of the English skylark, Mr H. Axup having conferred that boon upon the district by importing 11 of the little songsters from Nelson. These small birds were far more welcome to the farmer than the pheasant, which was beginning to muster pretty strongly about Wairoa

June 1875 the Timaru Herald noted that "it is interesting to notice the progress of the infant politicians of the colony. Mr Steward, the new Minister for North Otago, in the Provincial Executive, was formerly a partner in the firm of Axup, Steward and Bell, linen drapers of Christchurch, but he is better known as editor and proprietor of the North Otago Times and M.H.R. for Waitangi. Best of all he is known, among the denizens of Wellington during several successive sessions of Parliament"

April 1876 the screw steamer, ssEgmont, so well known as a regular trader between Wellington, Wanganui, Rangitike and other places on the West Coast, was totally wrecked in the Patea River. It appears she left Wellington on Monday and arrived at Wanganui next day, sailing again the same evening for Patea, where she arrived shortly after noon on Wednesday. She loaded a cargo of wool and grass seed at Patea, consigned partly to Messrs Levin & Co and partly to Mr Axup (which was, unfortunately, uninsured), taking her final departure on Thursday morning at ebb tide. In going out she struck on the end of the Boulder Bank and unshipped her rudder. She then drove right ashore and completely stove in her bottom, smashing the plates of the engine compartment ...

May 1876 Mr H. Axup took out a shooting license in Wanganui for the season

June 1876 a horse belonging to Henry had his leg broken on the Okehu road and had to be destroyed

15 May 1877 Henry's son Walter Eustace Axup arrived into Wellington on the 'Ben Ledi'. He arrived as a Saloon passenger along with Mr W. Clelland, Mr John H. Slator, Mr W. O. Trood, Mr W. W. Taylor, and Mr Henry George. in Second Cabin was Mr J. H. Whitelaw, Mr & Mrs William Hall with two children, Mr Edward Philpot and Mr William Hy. Lockwood. Henry arrived in Wellington 3 days before on the 'Stormbird'. Not long after that Henry returned to regularly sailing up and down the Island.

13 Dec 1877 Henry's daughter Kate arrived (Saloon Class) into Wellington on the Shaw Savill & Co's barque 'Rialto'. It had departed from London on 4th Oct. She then sailed up to New Plymouth, in Saloon Class, on the 'ss Kennedy'. The Shooting License for Henry Axup in May 1878 shows he was now based in Waverley - he still continued as a Commercial Traveller backwards & forwards between Taranaki, Hawkes Bay, Patea, Wellington

June 1878 Mr H. Axup applied to erect a gate near the Wairoa Stream on the road going through his property from D. McDonald's. Permission was granted in July

2 Aug 1878 Miss Axup - Kate? Ellen?(not yet found Ellen's arrival in NZ) - sailed from Wanganui to Wellington on the 'Manawatu'. Two weeks later, on 16 August, Henry sailed from Hawkes Bay to Wellington and the next day a Mr and Miss Axup sailed from Wellington to Sydney via the East Coast, on the ss Rotorua. If this was Henry he was back mid September, tripping around as usual. It is possible that Walter accompanied his sister Kate to Sydney

Nov 1878 Henry Axup was showing an American made, double buggy, farm carriage at the annual Wanganui A & P Show for which he won first prize

Dec 1878 Miss Axup arrived back in Wanganui on the 'Manawatu'.

22 Oct 1879 Henry Axup of Waverley was a defendant in the Supreme Court at New Plymouth when Richard Cook, the Plaintiff, was claiming £158 13s 11d (the equivalent in Oct 2017 of $822). Richard had caused the Bailiff to seize 80 or more head of superior cattle, 3 draught mares in foal and 1 thoroughbred mare in foal and was threatening to sell them by public auction in 5 days time unless Henry paid the money.

Hawera & Normanby Star, 29 Aug 1883 "We understand that shares in the Wellington Meat Preserving and Refrigerating Company are being freely subscribed. The provisional directors have taken up about 1000 £10 shares, Messrs Barber and Co propose to take up 1000 shares and (thanks to the active canvass now being made by Mr Axup, the company's agent for the coast), many of the larger owners are applying freely for shares. Seeing that it was proposed to start the business if only 2500 shares were subscribed, there can be no reasonable doubt but that the undertaking will float"

Star, 29 July 1884 The name of William Jukes Steward should be well known to old residents in Christchurch, for it was here that his start in the Colony was made, in conjunction with Messrs Axup and Bell, as a draper. The pen, we all know, is mightier than the sword, and Mr Steward apparently considers it also superior to the yard-measure for he has long since given up the latter for it. He was editor of the North Otago Times, but has now taken up journalism in Waimate, the home of his constituents ...

In April 1885 Henry Axup is still in Wanganui where he obtained a shooting license for the season. He then sails up and down the North Island as before

13 Nov 1885 at a Nautical Enguiry Henry Axup of Palmerston North, stated that he was a passenger of the Jane Douglas. The Jane Douglas did not wait for the Tui but went full speed ahead after leaving the wharf. The Tui caught up to her because she had been assisted by the sails. There was plenty of seaway for the Tui. Henry's opinion was that the Tui was trying to put the Jane Douglas on shore. He was so convinced on this point that he walked across the bridge and asked Captain Pope to keep away. Henry then told Captain Pope that he was in the wrong and id he did not look out would get himself into trouble. He also told Captain Pope that if he could not steer a straight course he had better put another man at the wheel. He thought the Jane Douglas would go on the rocks if she continued her course and he told Captain Fraser that if he did not stop his vessel he (Henry) would go to the engine-room telegraph and stop the machinery ... more at above link

Opening of Denbigh Hotel, FEILDING 1876

OPENING OF ROE'S DENBIGH HOTEL, Feilding - 12 May 1876
On the last Court day held at Palmerston North a license was granted to our friend Mr G. F. Roe (1859-1944, son of Charles Roe & Cecilia Sarah Carter) for his magnificent Hotel, the Denbigh, at Feilding. The hotel presents an imposing elevation, having a noble balcony over the verandah on the hall-door side towards Manchester Street, and a grand facade on the side facing Fergusson Street. One great improvement effected by Mr Roe in hotel architecture is, that the bar is entirely separate from the hotel proper, so that the guests are free from the usual noise attendant on such places of resort. The Commercial and smoking rooms are large in area, lofty, and well ventilated, the lower story being 12 feet in height. The private sitting-rooms are good, the dining sitting-rooms are good, the dining saloon quite a banqueting hall, and the bar is one of the best fitted we have seen for some time. The bed-chambers are very numerous, well ventilated, and furnished in the best style. The entrance hall and that leading to the staircase are what we would wish to see imitated, eight feet in width. The building was designed by Mr G. F. Roe, and erected under his immediate superintendence.

The Denbigh Hotel was opened on the evening of Friday, the 12th instant, with a ball and supper, at which the elite of Feilding were present, and enjoyed themselves to their heart's content until daybreak on Saturday warned the gentlemen that the stern business of life was about to be resumed. Not content with the ball alone, Mr Roe again invited his gentlemen friends to a dinner on the evening of Wednesday, 24th May, to which a numerous company responded and certainly it was worthy of the Denbigh.
Mr A. F. Halcombe presided, having Mr G. F. Roe on his right and Dr Johnston on his left hand.
After the cloth had been removed the Chairman gave "The Queen," which was, as usual, loyally received. Mr McArthur, the V.C., proposed "The Prince of Wales and the rest of the Royal Family" which was duly honored. Mr Gillett then sung "The Fine Ould Irish Gentleman."
Mr Maysmore gave "The Health of His Excellency the Governor," which toast was well received with musical honors.
* Song by T. Slade, "The Village Blacksmith."

Mr E. H. Wright, C.E., proposed "The land we live in."
* Song by Mr Corrigan of the Wanganui Herald, "Lannigan's Ball."
Mr Halcombe on rising said he was happy to again ask for bumpers in which to drink the health of his worthy friend Mr Roe and success to the Denbigh Hotel, as he could assure the company that under the proprietorship of Mr Roe the Hotel in which then were enjoying themselves so happily, would be conducted in such a manner that it would be a Hotel in reality and not what he regretted to say many hotels in this Colony were mere grog shops. Of Mr Roe, he could not speak in too flattering a manner, the more so as he was the first man who had assisted him in the Feilding settlement. Mr Roe place his workmen and materials on the ground and built the first houses occupied by the immigrants in Feilding; and prior to that , he had erected the spacious depot at Palmerston. He then erected the late Accommodation house, which had been a great boon to the public, and he (Mr Halcombe) regretted that the Denbigh Hotel was not built in the first instance. Mr Roe also built one of the first shops in Feilding, which he carried on for eighteen months. The toast was drunk with "He's a joy good fellow."
* Song by Messrs Slade and Lockwood "The Starboard Watch."

Mr G. F. Roe then rose and said: My Halcombe and gentlemen, let me offer you my best thanks, first for the honor you have done me in coming here this evening, and next for the warm manner in which you have received my health. It is the more gratifying to my feelings, after the many difficulties I have had to overcome before the Denbigh Hotel was opened. Now, however, that it has passed your scrutiny, I take your cheers as your approval. Nothing remains for me, or my brother, who is to be my successor, but by strict attention to the wants of our guests to merit a continuation of their patronage.
* Song by Harold Pearce, "The Watch on the Rhine."
"The Ladies" was proposed by Mr Wade in an appropriate speech.
* Song by Mr Lindsay Caldwell, "The Minute Gun at Sea."

"The Press" was next proposed by the Chairman, to which Mr E. H. Wright, of the Wanganui Herald, responded, and returned thanks on the part of Mr Corrigan and himself.
* Song by Mr Wright, "Are we fairly represented."
* Song by Mr Lash, "Old Simon the Cellerer."

Mr Gillett favored the company with a recitation from the play of Julius Caesar, which called forth loud applause. Mr McArthur and Dr Johnson sang some Scotch sons, and the company separated at midnight, after a very delightful evening

A transfer was granted from Chas. Roe to W. Watts, of the Denbigh hotel

Wanganui Herald, 4 June 1886 - NEW OWNER
The Denbigh Hotel, Feilding, has changed hands, Mr William Light, the well-known publican, of Wellington, being the purchaser. Mr Henry Axup was valuator for the new proprietor and Mr Anderson represented Mr W. T. Watts, the present occupant

Feilding Star, 4 June 1889 - LICENSE RENEWAL
William Light, Denbigh Hotel, Mr Sandilands, solicitor, applied for renewal - Granted

Feilding Star, 10 Dec 1891 - BEST IN THE COLONY
The Denbigh Hotel is one of the best conducted in the colony, and the reputation of the popular proprietor, Mr William Light, as a host is so well known that no comment on that point is needed. As a buyer of wine Mr light excels, there being few better judges in the colony, therefore whatever he vends is sure to be the best in the market. In our advertising columns Mr Light invites his old friends, whether as visitors from other parts or local residents, to come and see him during the Christmas holidays to exchange Christmas greetings

Manawatu Herald, 18 April 1893 - STRANGE LAWS
To all persons engaged in the selling of spirituous liquor we call attention to the case heard before Mr Brabant of Thursday. The facts are simply these. In January the Foxton Racing Club sold the right to sell spirituous liquors in the Grand Stand Booth for their meeting on the 23rd of January to Mr Light, hotel keeper of Feilding. Mr Light permitted Mr Joseph Smith to act as his representative, though it appears he was on the ground himself. On the Grand Stand the bar is at the back of the building and displayed along it was the legend, in very large letter "Denligh hotel" and in small letters over the above "W. Light." That was all that was on the banner that had floated for many a year over booths on race-courses/ By evidence it will be seen that the name "W. Light" was not conspicuous owing to its having been doubled up in the fixing. The complaint urged against Mr Light fixed on his (temporary) premises with the addition after the name of the word "licensed" and of words sufficient to express the business for which his license has been granted. As it was evident that these words were wanting his Worship fined Mr Light five shilling and cost, though the maximum fine for a first offence is £5.
It was not made clear in Court why the action was taken and we do not care to seek why accepting that it was done in the exercise of duty. As the law stand, it appears to be lawful for any publican to practically lend his license to another person to trade with, provided he is prepared to accept all the commissions and omissions of his representative. Whether it is quite fair to the local publicans is another matter. To all who run booths at racecourses and elsewhere we earnestly recommend a study of clause 123 of The Licensing Act 1881 and to be quite sure that the name of the owner is in letters of sufficient size and that the sign contains the word "licensed" as well as words sufficient to express the business for which his license has been granted and that such sign is place on the front of the building in which such business is carried on

Feilding Star, 24 Oct 1903 - SENSATIONAL ARREST
Yesterday Constable Whitehouse and Lyons arrested, on a charge of robbery, a young man named Leslie Rolfe, a native of Sydney, about 23 years of age, who has been employed for the past two years as porter at Mr Hook's Denbigh Hotel. The police have in their possession a miscellaneous assortment of jewellery, silk ties, tobacco, clothing, etc., to the value of £20. Constable Whitehouse on making an examination of the accused's bedroom, discovered an iron trunk, which contained a number of the articles mentioned. He afterwards found a box, which was planted behind a wood heap in the yard of the Denbigh Hotel. Judging from the description of some of the articles, it would appear that the robbery is closely connected with the disappearance of a traveller's samples from Hastie's Sample Rooms, which took place on the night of Oct the 12th or early in the morning of the 14th. Mr Steele, Mr Carthew and Mr Young arrived by the 5:45 train last evening and identified various articles as having been abstracted from their samples

Feilding Star, 9 June 1904 - LICENSE RENEWAL
W. T. Hook, Denbigh Hotel, renewal granted

Wanganui Herald, 1 Sep 1904 - HOTEL DESTROYED
Hook's Denbigh Hotel and sample rooms were totally destroyed by fire at 2 o'clock this morning, the occupants barely escaping. The hotel contained 33 rooms and was built of wood. In less than three-quarters of an hour, the hotel and sample rooms ere reduced to ashes.
The Bank of New Zealand building on the opposite corner was for some time in danger, but the collapse of the hotel saved it. The insurances on the hotel and sample rooms are:- £775 on the stock, and £500 on the furniture in the Phoenix; on the building £875 (2017 equivalent of $153,451) in the London, Liverpool and Globe and on the stock and furniture £350 in the Commercial Union ...
The fire at the Denbigh Hotel was discovered a few minutes before two o'clock this morning by Constable Whitehouse, who had visited the locality half an hour previously but there was then no sign of an outbreak. The Constable, when interviewed, said the fire started in the kitchen, the door of which was locked. When the fire was discovered, flames were bursting through the window. In his opinion, the outbreak was purely accidental.
The hotel was erected about 29 years ago for Mr Chas. Roe
On the alarm being given, Mr Hook, owner and licensee, called up the occupants of the hotel and proceeded to the scene of the outbreak. Mr Hook says he found the fire broke out near the store-room. The flames spread so quickly that he was unable to return to his room for his clothes, and he had to escape in his night attire. In his opinion the fire was the work of an incendiary. Mr Hook estimates his loss at fully £3,000 ($526,121 in 2017)above the insurance.
It is stated that Mr Hook intends to erect a substantial, up-to-date hotel in brick on the site of the building destroyed. The Fire Police and Fire Brigade justified their existence by the good work which they did in the protection of property and in preventing the spread of the fire ...
About an hour prior to the fire at the Denbigh Hotel an outbreak was discovered in a loosebox at Marston's stables attached to the Feilding Hotel. Some straw had been heaped up under a feed box and lighted and the door, which was off the hinges, placed against the doorway to hide the flames until they had obtained a firm hold. Fortunately one of the attendants at the stables who was on duty very late owing to the Feilding Bowling Club's ball being in progress at the Assembly rooms adjoining, saw the fire and extinguished it before much damage was done. There were racehorses in the adjoining loose-boxes so that had the stables been destroyed valuable horseflesh would probably have been lost.
Sergt. Stagpoole received a telegram to-day stating that a man named John Robinson had been arrested on suspicion of having set fire to the stables

Mr Harry R. Wallace, who takes over the Denbigh Hotel to-day from the trustees of the late Captain Falconer, is an Anzac. A native of Christchurch - where his father was one of Canterbury's oldest licensed victuallers and his brother is a licensee - he was in the N.S.W. Civil, went to Egypt with the Main Body of Service when the war broke out. He was with the A.I.F. (1st Battalion of the 1st Brigade) and took part in the landing and subsequent fighting on Gallipoli. He was wounded shortly afterwards, but quickly returned, winning a stripe as corporal and was on the Peninsula until the evacuation when he went with the Australians to France and saw much fighting there. Corporal Wallace was in the fight on Lone Pine Ridge when his comrade, the late Captain Shout (another New Zealander) won his Victoria Cross

Wanganui Chronicle, 24 Nov 1919 - SERIOUS DAMAGE
The Denbigh Hotel building was seriously damaged by fire to-day. A little after 2pm flames were discovered in the staff's quarters upstairs at the end of one wing. The fire spread along the wing and the brigade had to fight for an hour to get control. One side of the building was practically gutted on the upstairs portion and the ground floor. The furnishings etc., were ruined by water. The damage is hard to estimate at present, but it is possibly £3000. Both building and stock were insured but particulars are not available. The proprietor is W. T. Hook and the licensee H. R. Wallace. The latter had been here about two months and the fire was very unfortunate for him. He had every room booked for the racing season next week.
The Hon. D. Guthrie's secretary was a guest at the hotel and was using a room for Lands Department work but though he lost his private belongings, like many others, no State documents were destroyed

Manawatu Times, 9 June 1927 - DENBIGH FIRE
The seventy-roomed structure known as the Denbigh Hotel, situated at the corner of Manchester and Fergusson Streets was imperilled by an outbreak of fire which occurred yesterday at 3:50pm. Smoke was seen issuing from an upstairs room in the servants quarter occupied by the second cook, Mr Seager, and while at first considered an incipient outbreak an investigation proved it to be a serious nature and the brigade was promptly summoned and no less promptly arrived on the scene.
Volumes of thick black smoke issued from the rear of the building and the whole structure was soon saturated with the smoke charged atmosphere. The brigade got quickly to work and were able to confine the flames to the seat of the outbreak. Water, however, found its way to the ground floor which was thoroughly soaked. The kitchen, dining room and front of the premises suffered extensively from the effect of the water and smoke and as the electric light wires had been cut, the premises were closed as it was impossible to see,
The new motor fire pump proved an acquisition. There was no doubt as to the water pressure once the pump got going and a copious supply helped the brigadesmen to get the outbreak under control.
The Denbigh Hotel was the scene of a severe fire in 1919 when practically the whole of one wing was destroyed. It is a substantial concrete and brick building of two storeys, owned by Mr W. Hook of Auckland, and occupied by Mr D. D. McPherson who recently took over the license from Mr H. Dooly.
The origin of the outbreak is a mystery, The occupier of the room was absent and nothing is known as to the cause.
The insurances were:- £4,700 on the Hotel premises in the Commercial Union Office and £4,850 in the Ocean Accident Office

Harry Burrows, Denbigh Hotel, Feilding


.. taken from Manawatu District, Heritage Inventory (pdf)
- anything in italics is my addition -
The Hotel is situated at 50 Manchester Street, FEILDING
The first accommodation house on the site was constructed in 1874 by Charles Roe (1833-1901) who arrived at Petone in 1840. Following his emigration to Wellington, he moved to the Australian gold fields before returning to Wellington where he had an interest in Wellington’s first hotel, Dickie Barretts’. He then followed a career in journalism with the New Zealand Advertiser and Parliament’s Hansard until 1874. Mr Roe ran the Denbigh hotel for 14 years until his retirement. He named the hotel after the Earl of Denbigh who was a director of the Emigrant’s and Colonists’ Aid Corporation, a significant organisation in the settlement of Feilding. As with the Feilding Hotel, the Denbigh has been damaged by fire and rebuilt over the years.

The hotel was constructed by William Wilkinson. Perhaps, even if the town and District were searched in every direction, it would be found impossible to find one who has made a greater contribution to the progress of Feilding, in the material sense, than the sturdy pioneer and artisan to whom we pay public recognition this week - Mr William Wilkinson, master builder of Feilding... Feilding Star, 5th December 1936.
William Wilkinson was born in Preston, Lancashire and immigrated to New Zealand in 1879. After first working in Feilding he then moved to Auckland and the Waikato before commencing business on his own account in 1896. He established the first joinery shop in Feilding and among the many buildings he constructed includes: the Denbigh Hotel, Feilding Technical School, the Bank of New Zealand, Sandilands Buildings, the Manchester Street block from Carthews to Haybittle and Sons, the Fergusson Street block from Tingey’s corner to Bramwell’s, the Feilding Library, the Rangitikei Club and the Masonic Hall.

The building is designed in the Italianate Palazzo style. This Italianate commercial style was a part of the classical revival of the nineteenth century, which was championed by Sir Charles Barry from the 1840’s in his design of clubs and smaller office buildings. His preferred style was the sixteenth century Italian Palazzo and he was also influential in using this style for large country houses for the wealthy. Commercial buildings, particularly banks, preferred the use of classical architecture, and the design of C. R. Cockerell’s Sun Fire and Life Assurance building of 1839-42 in Threadneedle Street confirmed the Italianate Palazzo style. The design of larger structures using classical language was easily solved using the Palazzo style and quickly saw warehouses and multi-storey offices and other buildings adopt the Italianate Palazzo style. Architects such as Edward Walters, J. E. Gregan, Edward I’Anson, and John Gibson, popularised the style in England while Scottish architects also took up the style with gusto. The High Victorian period saw additional classical styles such as the French renaissance become a significant style, however the popularity of the Italianate Palazzo style for commercial buildings was maintained until the Edwardian period, when the style evolved into the Inter-war Commercial Palazzo style. This was developed by American architects McKim, Mead and White initially for Chicago high-rise commercial buildings, and this style became popular throughout the ‘New World’.
A rusticated base with arched window openings, triple arched colonnade to the upper front elevation and heavy cornices over upper windows and keystones are consistent with the style. As with most buildings of the town and period, the building is constructed of painted cement render over brickwork with painted timber joinery. Cast iron balustrading to the upper balcony is possibly an original element, however research on the original form and appearance of the building is lacking to form a definite conclusion. The interior largely retains its original planning; however relining the interior in the latter part of this century has obscured any original material to the ground and most of the upper floors. Small glimpses of the original lining material can be seen in the staff quarters where bedrooms have painted timber match lining on walls and ceiling and a bathroom has pressed metal on walls and ceiling. The substantial building addresses Manchester Street, with an obvious, and long, side elevation to Fergusson Street.

The building has regional significance for historical and architectural heritage values.
As the first public accommodation house in Feilding, the building has had an historical association with Feilding since its first settlement. Having been built by William Wilkinson, the building retains historical associations with the most prolific and successful builder in Feilding of the Edwardian period.
The building has architectural values as a good representative example of the Edwardian Italianate style, which was popular for hotels and office buildings in the early 20th century. The front elevation contributes to the streetscape of Fergusson Street and is a primary building in the town’s historic Edwardian precinct. It has moderate levels of authenticity of exterior design.

* The Greymouth Evening Star was the second newspaper to be established in Greymouth, although it was Greymouth’s first daily newspaper. Two important figures in the early life of the Star were James Snyder Browne and his son Montagu Lindsay Browne who is named as the sole proprietor of the newspaper in its issue of 1 June 1869. James Snyder Browne was one of the founders of Hokitika’s Evening Star and was later involved with a number of other newspapers, including being editor of the New Zealand Herald.
* There is a scrapbook consisting largely of newspaper cuttings of articles written by James Browne (1821-1885) under the nom de plume Snyder... Reminiscences in the life of a colonial journalist, My sentiments and other contributions (a colour portrait of James is mounted at the back of the scrapbook - go to link)
Under the pseudonym of "Snyder", Browne for many years contributed lively, facile commentaries on colonial life which were syndicated throughout New Zealand. About 1870 "Snyder" published some thirty five articles entitled, "Reminiscences in the life of a colonial journalist" based on some lectures given at the Mechanics Institute in Auckland, which cover his memory of personalities and events in Tasmania and the Victorian gold-fields, Otago, the West Coast and other parts of New Zealand. These cuttings are mounted inside the scrapbook.
... James "Snyder" Browne arrived at the Otago gold-fields in 1861 by way of Brazil, Tasmania and the Victorian gold-fields. On the gold-fields he took up journalism where his acid pen made him a favourite correspondent and columnist throughout New Zealand, and he edited newspapers on the West Coast and for a brief time at Whakamarina in Marlborough. Browne later edited the 'New Zealand Herald' in Auckland followed by a term as proprietor of the 'Coromandel Mail'. From about 1873 until 1878 Browne was editor of the 'Poverty Bay Standard'. When he retired from active journalism he set up business in Gisborne as an auctioneer and commission agent. He died in Gisborne on 7 Nov 1885

Masterton's first Church of England was built on the corner of Queen & Church Streets. The first wooden church was replaced by a brick one built on the northern side of Church Street - between Dixon & Archer Sts - and consecrated on 22 Sep 1913. This church was damaged in the 1942 earthquake and demolished. The third church was opened on the site of the second church in 1958. In the early 1990s St Matthew's Church was divided over theological matters, resulting in the resignation of the vicar, Barrie Allom

Masterton's first Church of England was built on the corner of Queen & Church Streets. The first wooden church was replaced by a brick one built on the northern side of Church Street - between Dixon & Archer Sts - and consecrated on 22 Sep 1913. This church was damaged in the 1942 earthquake and demolished. The third church was opened on the site of the second church in 1958. In the early 1990s St Matthew's Church was divided over theological matters, resulting in the resignation of the vicar, Barrie Allom
