He served for about fifteen years at sea, before arriving in Lyttelton by the ship Gannonoak in 1860, when he resigned his position as third mate of that vessel and settled at Woodend, where, and at Oxford, he was for several years engaged in the timber business. At the time of the West Coast rush, Mr. Mellars went to Hokitika, where he engaged in goldmining for about six months. In 1868 he went to the Thames, but after a short time he removed to Auckland, and eventually settled at Ohaupo in 1869. For several years afterwards Mr. Mellars engaged in sawmilling, and in 1888 he bought 1000 acres at Taupiri, where he established a sawmill, which he conducted till 1899. Since that time Mr. Mellars has been engaged in the flax business. The machinery of his mill, which was erected at the end of 1899, is driven by a fourteen horse-power steam engine, and the flax is purchased under contract from the natives. Mr. Mellars was married, in 1863, to a daughter of the late Mr. G. Gibbs, and has seven daughters and five sons.

Henry is a Prussian from the Baltic port of Memel and George Mellars was a Nottin'am man, with the most pronounced version of the difficult dialect of his native country. When these two got into an argument, therefore, the rest of the company had all the fun they wanted by simply listening. Two good, honest old fellows they were, and the colony would be all the better if it had more of their sort.

Old Age Pensions - THAMES, Coromandel 1899

sorted here in alphabetical order for easier reading
- my additional information will be obvious -
some birth dates may be approx, based on age at death

NOTE
two different newspaper reports had additional names. I have combined the lists
most of the applicants below received the full annual pension amount of 18
- this is the equivalent in Feb 2012 of $3100 or $59 per week -


OLD AGE PENSIONS
... from the THAMES STAR, 2 February 1899

Mr R. S. Bush was occupied from 10 a.m. yesterday until 7.30 o'clock last evening hearing old age pension claims, and disposed of eighty-two. Forty five were granted certificates for pensions.
Applicants for pensions should bear in mind that their own statements to the amount of property they possess are not sufficient for the Magistrate to acr upon. All persons possessed of land or houses should bring with them to the Court the Government valuation papers referring to such property, or where the valuation papers are not obtainable, then the municipal rating papers should be produced, as from them the position and numbers of the sections can be ascertained and the work of the Court facilitated thereby,
In the event of applicants having money in the bank, the bank book must be produced, that being accepted by the Court as the best evidence as to the amount of money possessed by the applicant.
Another matter to which we desire to call attention is that evidence, either personal or by statutory declaration, must be adduced in support of the applicant's residence in the colony, character, etc. It is important that these details should be borne in mind, for if they are not complied with the applications have to be adjourned, causing delay and extra trouble to the Court officials.

... 14 Nov 1907 An old age pensioner named Richard Baker, who took part in the relief of Lucknow, and who therefore held the Indian mutiny, died at the Homes, Tararu, today

GORDON DUKE MALCOLM CALDER
- son of John Malcolm CALDER & Charlotte Elizabeth GRAY
- Gordon died 5 Jan 1901 aged 18
- he is buried Plot 002, Block 02, Old Presbyterian at Wakapuaka
... CALDER, On January 5th, 1901, at the Westport Hospital, Gordon Malcolm, deeply beloved and only son of J. M. and C. E. Calder, aged 18 years and 1 month
... A SAD BEREAVEMENT - WESTPORT, Mr and Mrs J. M. Calder, of this city, have just sustained a sad loss, attended by peculiarly distressing circumstances. A day or two before Christmas their only son, Gordon, a fine young fellow,about eighteen years of age, left Nelson with a companion of about equal age, Claude Barltrop, to walk overland from Belgrove to Westport (distance of about 125 miles/200km). The journey was safely accompished, but young Calder arrived with a bad foot, and by a mischance the luggage of both youths, sent on by steamer, had gone astray. Putting up at a lodging house, Calder, not being well and suffering from the bad foot, was attended by his young friend, but his condition not improving, a medical man was called in and his removal to the Hospital ordered. Matron Hayward and Dr MacKenzie attended him night and day. The greatest efforts were made to save his life. On Thursday last a telegram was received by his parents, asking that his mother should proceed to Westport, as the lad's condition was serious, and this was the first intimation that was received of his illness being of an alarming nature. Mrs Calder left by the first steamer, the 'Kennedy' which, unfortunately, had to seek shelter at Totaranui, and the poor mother reached Westport only to find that her son had died by half-an-hour before, having been suffering from blood-poisoning and inflammation of the lungs. The deceased was a member of the H Battery, and a very promising young cricketer and fotballer - in fact, a fine manly young fellow, and the sympathy that will be felt with his stricken parents will be deep, and spread over a wide circle. The Calder family formerly resided here, and this evening symathy with them is heard expressed in all directions. The deceased was a great favourite amongst his old friends here. If possible, the Anchor Company will intercept the Kennedy at Greymouth, and that steamer will call here on her way to Foxton and bring the body. The funeral which is announced for Wednesday afternoon, will be a military one
