the funeral of Edward William KANE - 1934 Wellington

this posting is an attachment to the journal on a 'resident' of Mount Street Cemetery...

EDWARD WILLIAM KANE CMG, J.P. - 16 July 1934 aged 75
- (12 weeks after his wife Rosetta, see his link above)
18 July 1934 The death occurred at about seven o'clock this morning, after a brief illness, of Mr Edward William Kane, C.M.G., Clerk of Parliaments and Clerk of the Legislative Council. The late Mr Kane was born in Wellington on August 2, 1858, the youngest son of Henry Russell and Catherine Howard Kane, who were prominent early settlers in New Zealand, having arrived in Wellington in 1850. Of a family of six children, Mr Kane was the sole survivor. He was educated first at the Catholic School, Thorndon, conducted by the Marist Fathers, and later at a higher school directed by Mr J. H. Brann. After leaving school Mr Kane was articled to Mr F. M. Ollivier, barrister and solicitor and studied and worked at the law as managing clerk for Mr Ollivier forteen years. After a breakdown in health he joined the Parliamentary staff as a committee clerk in 1886. This he intended to be only a temporary occupation until he should return to the law, but he remained attached to the Legislative Department and served successively as committee clerk, reader, and clerk of Bills, second clerk-asistant and clerk-assistant, and for nine years he held the position of Clerk of the House of Representatives. Upon the death in 1929 of Mr A. F. Lowe, Mr Kane was appointed Clerk of Parliaments and Clerk of the Legislative Council. This office also carries with it the position of examiner of Standing Orders on Private Bills. Mr Kane had served continuously in the Legislative Department for forty-eight years. He was fond of racing and in 1929 was made a life member of the Wellington Racing CLub, of which he was one of the oldest members, having been elected in the early eighties. In 1921 Mr Kane married Mrs Baume, widow of Mr F. E. Baume, K.C., of Auckland; she died a few weeks ago.
The interment will take place at Mount Street Cemetery on Friday morning, following Requiem Mass at the Basilica

the autograph book of FLORA JANE SIMSON

on 13 June 2012 Betty (surname supplied) wrote to me for help
... "Our family recently found an old autograph book belonging to a Flora Simsons from Manaia, Taranaki. In the book there are entries from Maud Mary Putt of Manaia, Ethel Maud Mary Putt, Riverbank, Manaia 1912, a pen drawing of Durham Cathedral and Castle by Charles Putt, Coralie Putt, Riverbank Manaia 1912 and Ruby H Putt Manaia. I saw these names on your family circles research. I am trying to locate the family of Flora Simson, firstly to see if there is any connection to our family and secondly to pass on the autograph book to descendants of Flora. There are other Simsons mentioned in the book: Adelaide Simson Manaia 1910 and Ruby Simson 1910. There are quite a few other names as well Can you provide any information regarding Flora's family?. There is a signed photo of Miss Violet Carmen and her composer/pianist Alf J. Lawrance. Written at the bottom of the page is Wellington Theatre Royal 16/8/1913. There's also a signed caricature of Edward Elliott and Sunshine James - a ventriloquist dated 1913"

Thanks to Betty for sharing the names in the book and enabling me to do the following research. The very pleasing outcome of which means Betty is able to pass the autograph book on to Flora's great granddaughter ... see Flora below

... working down from Flora's paternal grandmother (after whom Flora is obviously named) this is the family that leads to 'our' Flora ...

FLORA CAMERON (1820-1886) arrived in Wellington in 1840

In 1850 Thomas had the Highlander Inn in Kaiwarra road, Wellington when he advertised, to sell or let, a Freehold Property in Wade's Town of 2 acres, substantially fenced and cleared with a house on it

in 1860 Thomas was in Dunedin when a number of East Taieri settlers signed that he was a proper person to keep a Licensed Accommodation House when he applied for a Bush License to sell Spirituous Liguors

In 1873 Thomas was in the Tuapeka Goldfields when he applied for application for an agricultural lease of unserveyed land situated at block IV., Waitahuna East, adjoining the land applied for by Robert Craig, comprising 3 acres

In 1877 Thomas was in Waitahuna when he found a piece of petrified wood, about two foot long and one foot thick, about 7 foot below the surface, and three foot above the bed rock on what was called the Waitahuna heights. It resembled a piece of waterworn greenstone and as hard as flint. That part of the Waihuna Gully then became known as Simson Reef

In 1886 FLORA SIMSON died in Opunake
... On the 21st November 1886, at the residence of her sons, Taungatara, near Opunake, Flora, the beloved wife of Mr Thomas R. Simson. She was the second daughter of Mr Hugh Cameron of Kaiwarra, Wellington, who has long preceeded her to the grave.

so, Flora and her family now found, we need to find out how Flora's autograph book came to be found in Betty's grandfathers house nearly 100 years later ...
Betty's grandfather was Bert HOBDAY (1889-1973). He in New Zealand, with his brother Arthur, when he was 14 to stay with his uncle, Thomas BULL in Rongotea, Manawatu
- Bert had a passion for photography and is believed to be the first professional aerial photographer in New Zealand. He was commissioned by the Auckland Weekly to photograph the damage to Napier after the 1931 earthquake
- an aerial view of Feilding taken in 1930 by Bert
- Bert married Mary 'Girlie' NESBIT (1885-1967) in Feilding & had 4 children
30 April 1913 On April 30, at the Presbyterian Church, Feilding, by the Rev. G. Budd, Mary (Girlie), eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs J. Nesbit, of Feilding, to Bert, third son of the late Mr George Hobday, of "Southfield", Romford, England
photo of Bert Hobday Founder of the New Zealand Professional Photographers Association

Bert Hobday (1889-1973) had a photography studio in Feilding, 'Hobdays Rona Studio' in the Cobbe Building, corner of Manchester & Fergusson streets

Flora's husband, Gerald Vaughan Cooke (1882-1967) was also a photographer in Feilding (until they moved back to Wanganui). He had the photography business 'At Home Photograher' in Manchester street (next to the school which was at 160 Manchester st, about 1km from Bert). Being in the same trade, in the same small town they would certainly have known each other. For Flora's book to have ended up at Bert's house they surely visited each other

BUT, how the book ACTUALLY came to be in Bert's home is now just a guess. Maybe she left it at the studio and it was taken home by Bert. Maybe she left it a Bert's house and never retrieved it. Bert & Gerald were of a similar age, maybe Flora (born 1889) was friends with Bert's wife Girlie (born 1885) ???

Edward Frank COTTON was born in England in March 1880, attended Dulwich College and became an Articled Clerk in his father's London law firm.
After his mother Anne died, 28 May 1901, Edward decided to leave home and 'go on the stage' (see more at his link above). His father, furious at his son's choice of career, requested that he cease to bring disgrace on the family by the use of their well respected name which led to Edward adopting the stage name of Edward Elliott.

Edward married in England in 1911 to Florence Maud 'Florrie' TENCH (1891-1958).
Their first daughter, Joan Ann Elliot, was born in Cheltenham, England in 1918
Their 2nd daughter, Peggy Elliott, was born in Sydney in 1920. Peggy wrote
Ladies' Day at Dunduffin & Always Ernest
At time of writing Peggy is still living on the Hibiscus Coast, North Auckland

3 Dec 1908 It is with sincere regret that I have to record the death of Sergeant Kyran Whelan, who passed away at the residence of his son-in-law, Webb street, on November 27, in his seventy-sixth year. He was one of the fast-diminishing band of veteran soldiers who saw service in the North Island in the early sixties. He was born in Ireland in 1833 and served in the Chinese war of 1860-1 under General Gordon. On returning to England he was made a recruiting sergeant in the 2nd Battalion of the 14th Regiment, came with his regimnet to New Zealand and took part in the Maori war. He saw service in the Waikato and at Waitara and when the Regiment was ordered Home became a member of the Armed Constabulary stationed in Taranaki. When the district was vacated by the Constabulary he was left in charge at Opunake, and later, when the force was merged into the police, he was appointed sergeant of police for the Patea district. He remained in the police force until 1898, when he retired on pension (with a record of 50 years army and police service to his credit). The deceased leaves five daughters, all of whom are married and settled in different parts of New Zealand. A requiem Mass was celebrated in St Mary of the Angels' Church, followed by the interment in the Mount Street Cemetery. The Rev Father Schaefer, S.M., officiated at the graveside, R.I.P.

WORDSWORTH, Frances (nee YOUNG) - 29 Nov 1884 aged 58
29 Nov 1884 On 28th November, at her residence, Wellington Terrace, Frances, relict of Samuel J. Wordsworth, Esq., writer of the Signet, Edinburgh, and daughter of Robert Young, Esq., of the General Post Office, Edinburgh, aged 58 years
2 Dec 1884 Mrs Frances Wordsworth, known as the heroine of the Crozets, she being the only female who escaped at the wreck of the Strathmore, and for many months participated in the hardships and suffering of the survivors until rescued, died on Saturday aged 58
2 Dec 1884 ... the incident of the wreck are no doubt still familiar to most of our readers. After recovering in a measure from the sufferings of that trying time, Mrs Wordsworth returned to England and eventually came to New Zealand with her son and daughter. The former with his family, settled at the Wairarapa; the latter resided with her mother in Wellington and the two followed the occupation of teaching music and dancing. But Mrs Wordsworth never entirely overcame the shock her constitution received at the wreck and during the subsequent struggle for life on the island. She had been ailing a considerable time and died last Saturday of general breaking up of the system. The son referred to together with his wife and family resided in this district till a few months ago when they left for Silverton
NOTE (from the 'wreck of the Strathmore' above) ... There was only one lady on board the Strathmore, a Mrs. Wordsworth, who was accompanied by her son, both being saved. For these two a separate shelter was made some distance from the others. Mrs. Wordsworth when taken into the boat had on only a nightdress and petticoat. She was treated with special care and attention. Her son gave a graphic account of their life on the island. "The first night," he said, "my mother had a few planks to lie upon, but her legs were nearly broken by the number of people crowding in under the canvas. The two following nights we slept in a sort of open cave, and though covered with frost and with icicles hanging over our heads, we preferred it to our experience of the first night. After this we had a little shanty of our own.

"The food we chiefly lived on was albatross, of which the young gave more eating than the old, being larger and heavier. Another bird we used was one which we at first thought was a 'mollyhawk,' but we afterwards discovered they were what the sailors call 'stink-pots.' They were very large birds with strong beaks. I remember getting a bite from one which hurt through a Wellington boot, trousers, and drawers. We caught these birds by chasing them into rough places, where they found it difficult to rise, and we then killed them with clubs. Our favourite vegetable was a sort of moss with long spreading roots, and we were often so hungry that we ate dirt and all. Owing to the season of the year the nights were very long, fifteen hours, which we tried to pass in sleep. Our dreams were generally of food in some shape, but there was always a feeling in the background that spoiled these dream feasts.

"When my mother got ashore she was wet through, starving, and cold. One of the sailors took the shirt off his back and gave it to her; and she also had a pair of men's trousers, a pair of men's drawers, a pair of stockings, an overcoat, and other odds and ends, all given her by the sailors. The coarse, rank flesh of the seabirds disagreed with her, and she suffered much from low fever and a dreadful bowel complaint. She was reduced to a perfect skeleton, and was so weak that I had to turn her over in the night when she wanted a change of position. Although she had been very subject to rheumatism she was never troubled with it while on the island, in spite of her great privations. Our clothes were seldom quite dry, and we often had to lie down in absolute slush, with the rain beating on our faces, but none of us took cold, owing, I suppose, to the ammonia in the guano-covered soil.

"Nearly all of us suffered from diarrhoea, and similar trouble, and the wine and spirits were invaluable. A small salt cellar of wine, or spirits and water, was served out nightly until finished, except a bottle of wine and a bottle of rum, which were buried for the use of the sick.

"Two dishes I prepared for my mother were brains of birds, fried, and the heart and liver minced with moss. We had no salt, and flavoured our dishes with gunpowder and sea water.

"When the wood we had collected for firewood was all finished, except a few sticks we kept for the purpose of cleaning the birds we used for food, we tried to keep the fire going with turf, but it merely smouldered slowly. Luckily someone threw a skin on the fire one day, and we were surprised and delighted to find that it burned readily. That, of course, solved the fuel problem. To save our matches we kept a sort of lamp going, feeding it with oil made from the fat we scraped off the bird skins.

"We seldom could clean ourselves, the dirt being too fast on to permit of cold water taking it off. However, we had a method of cleaning our faces by rubbing them with the bird skins, afterwards rubbing them with the feathers.

"At one time we were very hard up for food, having only two birds left. We were very weak and low-spirited. One day some of the party went to the other side of the island where we were wrecked, and there they saw a number of large mud-nests, with a great lotpage 108 of beautiful white birds, 'mollyhawks.' They were so tame that they flocked down at our feet. We killed about a hundred, and had such a feast off the tails! The appendage was cut off close to the back, the long feathers pulled out, and the tail being grilled for a time in the fire, was considered a great delicacy. Another real delicacy came at this time?the mutton birds and birds of a similar kind. Later on we got some eggs."
Mrs. Wordsworth and her son afterwards resided for some years in England, and later came out to Taranaki to live ... more at above link

YVERT, Jean Francois - 5 July 1867 aged 70-76
taken from Jean Yvert
... MR JEAN FRAN?OIS YVERT, aged 44 (on arrival in New Zealand in Group V on 15 June 1841).
He was a layman who had separated from his wife and daughter about 1829. After he had become attached to the Society of Mary, in 1839 he did a short apprenticeship at Caen in printing and bookbinding. The Marist administration then deputed him to purchase, in Paris, a printing press and accessories to travel with him to Kororareka. He lived as a brother with the Marists, sharing their work including the building of the printery. The first book in Maori came off the press in October 1842. During the troublesome time of 1845 he took the press for safe keeping to Whangaroa. After its return to Kororareka, he seems to have divided his time between printing there and helping supervise (with Louis Rozet) Whangaroa catechists' training school. He went with Philippe Viard to Wellington in 1850, and remained with the Marist community in Thorndon, helping build and administer the parish plant there, even teaching when needed till he was too old to continue. He died there on 7 July 1867 aged 71, and is buried in Mount St cemetery
8 July 1867 The friends of the Catholic Mission are requested to attend the funeral of Mr J. Yvert, which will take place on Friday, the 9th instant, at 9 o'clock in the morning. The procession will leave the Bishop's house for the Cathedral, where mass for the dead will be offered for the soul of the deceased.
The devoted and disinterested (??) services rendered by Mr J. Yvert to the Catholic Mission in New Zealand for 26 years, claim from the Faithful the aid of their fervent prayers for the repose of his soul

TUOHY, Michael - 21 Oct 1881 aged about 60
many variations on the spelling of this name, Tuohy, Twohy, Twohey, Toohy, Trohy
22 Oct 1881 Michael Trohy, carter, died suddenly at his residence in Hobson-street, at half past 8 o'clock last night. The cause of death will in all probability be determined upon a Coroners jury. It appears that the deceased returned home shortly after 8 o'clock last night, complaining of being attacked by sharp pains in the stomach. From a chemist a draught was obtained with the object of allaying the pain. This, however, seemed to have little effect and death ensued at the hour named. The services of a medical gentleman do not seem to have been solicited. The deceasedd was about 60 years of age, a widower, and possessed of two dwellinghouses in Hobson-street. No suspicious circumstances surround the occurrence. An inquest will be held at the Metropolitan Hotel, Milesworth-street, on Monday next at 11 a.m.
24 Oct 1881 At the inquest of Michael Twohy, a verdict of "Death resulted from heart disease" was returned

The Memorial at Somes Island
- link at TIMOTHY TROY's name -
Being an isolated island nation, New Zealand was keen to protect itself from diseases such as typhoid, smallpox and scarlet fever. Immigrants arriving in Wellington harbour were cleared through Somes Island. Wellington's new arrivals were made to sit in a smoke house, in chlorine, potassium nitrate and sulphur fumes, for 10 minutes to get rid of lice. During this 'lay over' time a number of new immigrants died (or gave birth) and in 1970 the memorial cairn below was erected to remember them. Timothy's name is on the memorial

the 'residents' of MOUNT STREET CEMETERY, Wellington from 1841 ... S names

the Roman Catholic MOUNT STREET CEMETERY is a protected heritage site in Wellington, New Zealand (click link for more). It was the first cemetery in Wellington for Catholic burials and contains the graves of the first nuns and priests in Wellington. It remained open until 1891 although burials continued in existing family plots until 1954. The earliest surviving grave marker dates from 1851, and the latest from 1954. Although only around 200 headstones survive, it is estimated that there could have been as many as 1150 burials. Many of the early markers were simple wooden crosses, which have long since vanished

9 July 1880 Captain Kingsford Sharp, whose lamented death from bronchitis took place yesterday, at the ripe old age of 74 and who, as a J.P. and Nautical Assessor, has frequently, during the past twelve months rendered good service to the Government and his fellow-citizens, was an old East Indian Company's servant. On resigning his command of one of "John Company's" fleet, he sailed to New Zealand in 1841, by the good ship Mandarin. First as a merchant, then as a Harbormaster (in which position Captain Holliday was his successor), and then as President of the Marine Board, the deceased gentleman did good service in his time. Subsequently he took the office of Collector of Customs and Postmaster at Wanganui and after a long career in the New Zealand Service, retired, and settled down again in Wellington upon pensions both from the Colonial Government and the Comapny's service. Captain Sharp's residence on the Terrace was always one of the characteristic landmarks of this city, and it is interesting to know that the house stands on the very spot where, 39 years ago, he first pitched his tent on his arrival here. The good old gentleman's sterling sense and good-heartedness will be much missed in Wellington. It is stated that his family propose to remove his remains to England, so as to inter them in the family vault at Dover

He entered into farming pursuits in the vicinity of Wades-town and afterwards went to the Otago diggings, on return from which he carried on various kinds of business ventures. His speculations proved successful and he accumulated considerable means. Of late years he has been a martyr to rheumatic gout, which has been the principal cause of his death, for though he had reached the ripe age of 76 his natural vitality was very remarkable until weakened by this malady. Mr Sievers leaves a grown-up family of six - Mr Wm. Sievers of Kilbirnie, Mrs W. J. Raymond, Mrs G. Lambert, Mrs Claude Hearn, Mrs T. Shields and Mrs G. Hopkins

3 Feb 1890 B. Stagpoole, an old Crimean veteran who also saw service during the latter part of the Indian Mutiny and served during the late New Zealand war, died today. He was a member of the 57th Regiment, and as such, was present at the storming of Titokowau's stronghold. One of his brothers, Dudley Stagpoole, also in the 57th Regiment is said to be the only man in the British Army who has received the Victorian Cross and also the distinguished conduct medal. His death was somewhat sudden and was due to a seizure of Indian cholera, a disease which he contracted when in India and has since been subjected to periodically
1 Feb 1890 An old Crimean veteran, who also saw service during the latter part of the Indian Mutiny and served with distinction during the last New Zealand war, joined the great majority to-day. We refer to Mr B. Stagpool, who for years has been a resident of Wellington, and who passed away at his residence, Exeter House, Cambridge terrace, early this morning. For his Crimean service Mr Stagpool was awarded a medal by the Imperial Government, from whom he also drew a pension up to the time of his death. He came to the colony with the gallant 57th Regiment, and with them took part in quelling the native disturbance - on the West Coast which had necessitated their presence, being also present at the storming of Titokowaru's stronghold. Having gained the New Zealand medal for this service, Stagpoole, like many of his comrades, determined to settle in the colony, where he remained until his death. He was twice married, and leaves a widow. Two of his sons are at present in Sydney, and a third is a sergeant of police - at Sydenham, Christchurch; while his only daughter is married to Mr J. Driscoll, of Courtenay place. Mr Stagpoole's death was somewhat sudden, and was due to a seizure of what, medical men specify as Indian cholera, a disease which he contracted while in India, and has since been subjected to periodical attacks.

SULLIVAN, Daniel - 4 Sep 1880 aged 25 (buried 18th)
16 Sep 1880 The body found in the harbor has been identified as that of Daniel Sullivan, a laborer, aged 25, a native of Ireland. He was last seen on Saturday 4th September when in low spirits through inability to obtain employment and it is said he expressed his intention of drowning himself
15 Sep 1880 At half-past seven o'clock this morning a lad drew the attention of Constable O'Connor to the body of a man which was floating in the water m\near Mills foundry. O'Connor and Sergeant Ready succeeded in landing the body, which was very much decomposed, and had it conveyed to the Morgue. Here, a young man named John Lane, residing in Hawkestone street, identiied the body as that of Daniel Sullivan, a laborer, who had formerly been among the unemployed. Deceased was a single man, 25 years of age, and a native of Ireland. He had been residing with Lane and left the house at 3 o'clock on the 4th inst. He was then in low spirits owing to his inability to obtain employment, and it is said that when at the Clyde Hotel that day he expressed his intention to drown himself. It will be recollected that on on Monday, the 6th inst., a paragraph appeared in the POST stating that a man named Glass had, on Saturday night heard a gurgling sound in the water near Mills foundry, but that upon examination there was nothing to lead to the suspicion that anyone had got into the sea. It is now only too certain that the gurgling sound heard by Mr Glass proceeded from the deceased. Sullivan was a man about 5ft 6in high, with brown hair. He was, when discovered, dressed in a blue pilot jacket, striped tweed trousers and vest, lace-up boots and a blue cotton shirt. In his pockets were a knife, two handkerchiefs, seven and sixpence in silver and twopence in copper. Deceased is said to have a brother, a laborer, residing in Christchurch
17 Sep 1880 At the inquest on the body of Daniel Sullivan, a verdict of "found drowned" was returned

SULLIVAN, Daniel - 16 Feb 1888 aged 18
16 Feb 1888 On the 16th February, accidently killed, Daniel Sullivan, aged 18 years; deeply regretted by a large circle of friends. R.I.P.
17 Feb 1888 A youn carter named Daniel Sullivan, aged about 20, met his death by a distressing accident which occurred at about 4.30 yesterday afternoon at the excavation works which have lately been in progress in a new street off the eastern side of Kent-terrace, opposite the end of Lorne-street. Sullivan was employed in driving the horse attached to the dray which was used for conveying the debris down the slope, from the face where the navvies were working to the level ground below. When last seen alive he was leading his horse by the bridle towards the section which is being filled up. The attention of his mates was called to the face that the horse arrived at its destination without the driver. One of their number, named Thomas Emeny, ran forward and found deceased lying motionless on the road at the bottom of the gradient, with the left side of his face flattened by presure and blood issuing from his mouth, nose and right ear. Assistance was sent for and Dr Collins was quickly on the spot and found that death had taken place before his arrival. It is supposed that the horse must have tripped and thrown the driver down, the wheel of the dray passing over the back of his head. Dr Collins ascertained that death was due to a fracture of the base of the skull. The body was conveyed to the Morgue, where an inquest was held this morning, before Dr Johnston (Coroner) and a jury, of which Mr Henry Wright was foreman. Evidence was given by Dr Collins, Thomas Emeny, James Grover and Constable Gleeson and eventually the jury returned a verdict of Accidental Death. Deceased was unmarried. He was a native of County Kerry, Ireland and arrived in the colony by the Ruapehu about 12 months ago. Until this week he was in the employment of Mrs Sharpe on the Terrace, as driver and he had the reputation of being a steady and industrious young man. Two of his sisters live in Wellington and he has also a brother at Masterton

SULLIVAN, Henry - 19 March 1897 aged 58
19 March 1897 On the 19th instant, at his residence Coorong House, Tasman-street, Henry Sullivan; aged 58 years. R.I.P.
20 March 1897 The news that Mr Henry (Barry) Sullivan, who was for many years a license victualler in Wellington, has succumbed to an attack of dropsy, will be received with genuine regret by a large number of our readers. Mr Sullivan was born in Galway 58 years ago and came out to Australia when a young man. For many years he was a steward on intercolonial steamers and while so employed he saved sufficient money to enable him to enter into partnership with Mr Thomas, now chef at the Empire Hotel, as part licensee of the Central Hotel, Lambton-quay. After several years the partnership was dissolved, and Mr Sullivan, who had shown good business qualities and had made himself very popular in the city, became the licensee of the National Hotel, Lambton-quay, which he conducted with great success until five years ago, when he retired into private life, taking up his residence in Tasman-street, where he died last night after an illness of six weeks.
The deceased, who leaves a widow and three children, one of whom is Miss May Sullivan, the well-known amateur vocalist, to mourn their loss, was of a most genial disposition. He was possessed of a very generous nature, and was always ready to assist those in distress. He was at the time of his death of independent means, his properties including several hotels
22 March 1897 There was a large attendance at the funeral of the late Mr Henry Sullivan yesterday, the mourners including a number of the leading Roman Catholic clergymen of the city, the Rev H. Van Staveren and the Rev J. K. Elliott, the Premier, and the Hon J. Carroll. Part of the burial service took place at St Mary of the Angels Church and the remainder at the Catholic Cemetery, Wellington-terrace. Messrs Light (of Feilding, an old comrade of the deceaed as steamboat steward), Downes, Evans and O'Keefe were the pall-bearers

the 'residents' of MOUNT STREET CEMETERY, Wellington from 1841 ... R names

the Roman Catholic MOUNT STREET CEMETERY is a protected heritage site in Wellington, New Zealand (click link for more). It was the first cemetery in Wellington for Catholic burials and contains the graves of the first nuns and priests in Wellington. It remained open until 1891 although burials continued in existing family plots until 1954. The earliest surviving grave marker dates from 1851, and the latest from 1954. Although only around 200 headstones survive, it is estimated that there could have been as many as 1150 burials. Many of the early markers were simple wooden crosses, which have long since vanished

- born 1850 in Ireland, he was a member of the Royal Irish Constabulary
15 Jan 1886 Second-class Sergeant Maurice Ready has been promoted to the rank of first-class sergeant. The sergeant has been in the New Zealand Constabulary for the past 20 years, having been selected as one of a contingent of seven men who, at the request of the Southland Provincial Government were sent to Invercargill by Sir Charles McMahon, the then Chief Commissioner of the Victorian Police, soon after Hartley and Reilly discovered the Dunston River working. Sergeant Ready before he went to Victoria had served in the Irish Constabulary Force
10 Oct 1896 Maurice Ready of Wellington, ex-sergeant of police, has been petitioning the House asking that he be granted some further compenstaion for his loss of office in the force, or that he be granted some further employment. The Public Petitions Committee has reported that the petitioner has no further claim upon it
7 Aug 1902 The compensation case of Maurice Ready v the Corporation of Wellington was called before his Honour the Chief Justice this morning. Claimant, who is an ex-sergeant of police, claimed ?3000, odd (equivalent in 2012 to $503,000) as compensation for the taking by the Corporation of his land in John-street, described by his counel (Mr Jellicoe) as an allotment of 40ft frontage with a building which had been on the land for many years. Mr Jellicoe said the Court was not likely to be troubled with the claim, as he was driven to accept the offer made by the Corporation because all his witnesses advised its acceptance. Claimant honestly believed in the claim put forward by him for ?3000 odd, and it was difficult for him (Mr Jellicoe) to persuade his client not to insist on it. The Chief Justice said claimant could not expect more than had been awarded in simlar cases, and in respect of a piece of land in the same block. If claimant went on, cost might be against him and it would be better to accept a reasonable offer. His Honour would not like to see a man lose his land and have to pay costs too. Mr Martin (for the Corporation) said no claim for costs would be made if the Corpoations offer was accepted. Mr Jellicoe assured his Honour that the Court would not need to take any further action

PETITJEAN, Rev Father Jean Baptiste - 21 Sep 1876 aged 65
- in October 1842 Father PetitJean became the first official resident priest. St. Mary's Hill Street. Wellington, was founded by the Very Rev. Father Petitjean in 1851
21 Sep 1876 The Rev. Father Petitjean, a well-known Catholic Priest, dropped dead in St Mary's Cathedral this evening, at about half-past five. The immediate cause was heart disease
27 Sep 1876 Whilst praying in the Catholic Church in Hill-street, Wellington, at five o'clock on the evening of the 21st September, the Rev Father Petitjean fell down exhausted. Dr Grace was promptly in attendance, but the Rev Father died within ten minutes. Father Petitjean never recovered from a serious illness he had last winter and was always ready for death, as he suffered from advanced organic disease of the heart. Nothing, however, could induce him to interrupt the severity of his religious practices, or diminish his assiduous labours in the care of his flock. He was beloved and esteemed by both old and young and will be regretted not only by his own flock, but by many friends belonging to other denominations. Father Petitjean was borne in France in the Diocese of Lyons, on the 30th March 1811 and was ordained prist about the year 1839. He was a brilliant subject and held the highet post in the seminary of Lyons. At an early period in the history of this Colony he felt called to the mission cause here and came to Auckland, where he labored for some years; but when Dr Viard was made Bishop of Wellington he came with that ecclesiastic and remained ever since in this city. He was ever active, ever beloved and respected and died almost at the altar, having received the last rights of his church from the hands of the Bishop
29 Sep 1876 The Dunedin Evening Star tells us that the late Father Petitjean, whose sudden death in the Cathedral Church at Wellington we noticed last week, visited this Province in the early days. In 1853 or 1854 he walked through every part of it - a no mean task in those days, when there were no roads - in order to visit the scattered members of his Church. On one occasion during that visit he got lost and passed a night alone in the bush at Mataura, which nearly resuted in his death. The Post speaks of him as a true Christian, universally loved by his congregation and respected by all who knew him

PHELAN, William - 12 Dec 1876 age 46
13 Dec 1876 Another old settler has left us to join the majority. Mr William Phelan, who died last night, at the age of 46, was one of the early colonists and at one time owned considerable property here. He was a baker by trade and made a very fair fortune by supplying the troops with bread at the time of the Maori war, and by other Government contracts; but he was always ready to lend to those who sought to borrow and the result was that he lost most of his savings. He was much esteemed by all who knew him. Latterly he suffered much from ill-health and general debility, which ended in his death as stated. He was an active member of the A.O.F., and was one of the founders of Court Sir George Bowen. His funeral will take place on Sunday next, leaving his residence, Taranaki Place
18 Dec 1876 The funeral of the late Mr William Phelan took place yesterday afternoon. It was attended by fully 300 persons, the majority of whom belonged to the A.O.F., of which body the deceased had been a much respected member. His remains were interred in the Roman Catholic Cemetery

14 Nov 1885 A FORGOTTEN SOUTHLANDER, Mr Walter H. Pilliet, who died of typhoid fever at Wellington last Saturday, arrived in the colony when quite a youth and was first employed as a cadet on Messrs Clifford and Weld's Flaxbourne Station. He was conected with both the Clifford and Weld families and came out under the firms auspices. After acquiring a knowlege of colonial life (says the Post), he had a somewhat chequered career, having been for a time a land surveyor and land agent in Invercargill, then engaged under Lieut. Woods in the marine survey of the colony. He was also for a time private secretary to Sir Donald McLean when native Minister, and was subsequently appointed Warden and Resident Magistrate on the Marlborough goldfield and afterwards Resident Magistrate at Akaroa. From an early period Mr Pilliet took an interest in journalistic work and he was at various times connected with, or a contributor to, most of the leading journals of the colony. He was an able and incisive writer and thoroughly well informed in New Zealand politics. Several years ago Mr Pilliet edited the Evening Post in Wellington. More recenty he held a share in the Christchurc 'Telegraph'. After resigning the resident magistracy, Mr Pilliet represented Akaroa in the Provincial Council of Canterbury and in the general election of 1881 he was elected to the House of Representatives as member for Stanmore, but failed to secured re-election. It is only a few weeks since Mr Pilliet determined to settle in Wellington and brought his wife and famiy there. He leaves a widow and several daughters. Mr Pillit was a native of France, but spent most of his youth in England

27 Nov 1886 We regret to have to announce the demise of Mrs Mary Power, who died yesterday afternoon at her residence, Tattersall's Hotel, Cambridge Terrace, after a long and painful illness, extending over a period of two years. Mrs Power, who has been engaged in the license victualler's business in Dunedin, Hokitika and Wellington for the last quarter of a century, was justly esteemed for her many amiable qualities and her open handed charity which exhibited itself both so far as the relief of private cases of distress was concerned, and also in instances of public charities. The deceased lady on the breaking out of the rush at Gabriel' Gully, Otago, left Victoria and since that time she has been known as hostess of a number of hotels in different portions of the Middle Island and in Wellington in which latter city she conducted at various times the Star Hotel, the Albert Hotel and more recently Tattersall's Hotel. Mrs Power has left a grown up son, who is at present at Kimberley and two married daughters
29 Nov 1886 The respect in which the late Mrs Mary Power was held was shown yesterday by the large number of persons who followed the remains of the deceased lady to the cemetery. The cortege, which left Tattersall's Hotel at half-past 3, halted at St Mary of the Angels' Church, Boulcott-street, where a portion of the funeral service was read, at the conclusion of which the Rev Father Kerrigan gave a short address on the uncertainty of life. The Rev Father extolled the many good qualities of the deceased and exhorted the congregation to take an example from her life. The body was then removed from the church and conveyed to the Roman Catholic Cemetery, where the interment took place, amidst a large concourse of persons of either sex

Mr Prenderville has for some time been suffering from diabetes, but up to last Wednesday afternoon he was able to attend to his duties.

Prenderville, master of the public school at Makara up to the time of his death, were interred in the Cathoic Cemetery yesterday afternoon, and were followed to the grave by a large number of friends. The coffin was conveyed to the cathedral at 3 o'clock and after the usual rites had been performed the cortege proceeded to the cemetery, where the service was conducted by the Rev Father Power

PRINGLE, Robert Oliver - 9 Nov 1895 aged 2.9
- son of Robert PRINGLE & Agnes Selina Wilson GREIG (1874-1956)
12 Nov 1895 A distressing accident happened at Petone on Saturday morning, resulting in the death of a little boy named Robert Oliver Pringle, aged two years and nine months, son of Robert Pringle, of Beach street. It appears that about 11 o'clock the child was wandering about the drainage works between Richmond and Queen streets, when he was struck by a pick wielded by a labourer named Patrick Healy. The poor child was at once conveyed to his parents house, and Dr Hislop was sent for, but the blow, which had struck the cild on the head, resulted fatally in about three-quarters of an hour. As far as can be ascertained no blame whatever attaches to Healy, who is greatly distresed at the occurrence. He happened to be wearing a large hat and as a strong wind was blowing, he drew it far down over his head. Just as he raised his pick the chld ran forward, unseen by him, and received the blow which resulted so disastrously. Much sympathy is felt for the parents of the child. They live at Petone and the father is himself employed on the drainage works. He formerly resided in Christchurch

PUTNAM, Annie (nee ADDIS) - 23 Oct 1930 aged 76
23 Oct 1930 On 23rd October, Mrs A. Putnam, of Northland. Private interment. No flowers. R.I.P.
27 Oct 1930 A great many friends will hear with regret of the death of Mrs Putnam, a well-known and much respected resident of Northland, who went to reside there in the early days, when that part was known as "Governor's Farm". Mrs Putnam, who was a woman of culture and of a hospitable and kindly disposition, was born in Auckland, her maiden name being Addis and her people coming from India with the 65th Regiment. She lived as a child through the troublous times in the Bay of Plenty dring the Maori Wars, her father having been a member of the first Waikato Regiment. In later years she told many most interesting things of those early days, making those who heard realise the straits and dangers of the early pioneers of New Zealand. Her husband, who predeceased her many years ago, was Mr Philip Putnam, who went through long campaigns in the North and on the East Coast of the colony. He arrived by the ship Annie Wilson in 1864, finding friends in the 65th Regiment and joined them as a trumpeter continuing with them till he was old enough to join the Armed Constabulary in 1870. He was present when Te Kooti was taken prisoner, and remained in the King Country till the Maori War was over. Later Mr Putnam joined the Public Works Department, rising in the course of years of good service to the position of auditor. He was a member of St Mary's Choir for many years, becoming choirmaster later on. Many will remember that the original St Mary's Church was burned down and the Basilica occupies the site. Mr and Mrs Putnam were prominent in musical circles and their family has followed on in the same aristic lines. The eldest son is Mr W. Putnam (1876 - 1941 William Addis) and the younger, Mr P. H. Putnam (1879 - 1954 Philip Harry) of Wellington. There are five daughters - Mrs H. Stott (Wellington) (1882 - 1945 Martha Charity), Mrs Monaghan (New Plymouth) (1886 - 1973 Stella Elizabeth), Miss Putnam (1877 - 1975 Adelaide Mayo May) and Miss Barbara Putnam (1884 - 1933 Barbara Constance) who reside at Northland and Miss Ruth Putnam (1888 - 1978 Ruth Mary) who is in London at present. The burial took place at the Mount Street Cemetery, the family being among the few still privileged to use the old Roman Catholic Cemetery situated there

PUTNAM, Philip - 19 Nov 1890 age 43
- arrived in North of New Zealand in 1864 on the 'Annie Wilson'. He found some friends in the 65th Regiment and joined them as a trumpeter and continued till he was old enough to join the Armed Constabulary in 1870
19 Nov 1890 On the 19th November, at the Wellington Hospital, Mr Philip Putnam, late of the Public Works Department, aged 43 year
19 Nov 1890 Mr Philip Putnam, of the Public Works Department, who was thrown from a trap on Monday night, died in the Hospital at noon to-day. Deceased was choirmaster of St Mary's Cathedral and conductor of the Wellington Operatic Company
21 Nov 1890 the LATE MR PUTNAM
... Although no one appears to have really seen the lamentable trap accident which was the cause of the untimely death of Mr Philip Putnam, several persons were in the immediate vicinity at the time it occurred amongst them being Mr Robinon, R.M., Mr W. P. James, Clerk of the Resident Magistrate's Court, Mr A. R. V. Lodder, of the City Bufffet Hotel and Mr B. F. Whittaker, bookseller. Even Mr Putnam's two sons, aged about nine and eleven, were unable to afterwards give anything like an accurate account of the cause of the accident. They told Mr Whitaker, who took them to his house, that when they left home at Karori one of the shafts of the trap was damaged and in coming down the new road into Sydney street they heard the shaft crack. Their father remarked, "Never mind; it will be all right and will carry us safe". Somewhere between Sydney and Featherston streets they believe that the fractured shaft gave way entirely, frightening the horse till it bolted, causing the accident opposite Messrs Johnton and Co.'s office. Strange as it may appear, it would seem that Mrs Putnam had some sort of presentment of coming evil on that eventful evening. Knowing of the damaged state of the shaft of the dog cart and that her husband had only repaired it temporarily, she expressed a wish that he would walk nstead of drive into town. He however, lightly answered that there was nothing to fear and told her not to be nervous. As it afterwards turned out, Mrs Putnma's advice, if followed, would have preserved a life. The above is the substance of the evidence adduced at the enquiry into the circumstances connected with the accident which was held at the Hospital yesterday afternoon, by the District Coroner. As regards the injuries Mr Putnam received, Dr Ewart, Sperintendent of the Hospital, said that the skull was fractured, presumably at the base and death was due to hemorrhage on the surface of the brain, brought on from that cause. The jury, of which Mr Joshua Bell was foreman, decided not to require the attendance of the sons of the deceased and returned a verdict that the accident occurred throught the shaft of the trap he was driving giving way. It had been broken and bound up with wire, but he persisted in using it. He met his death through being 'Accidentally Thrown from a Trap'.
The body was removed to St Mary's Cathedra in Hill-street last night, and the coffin left open in order that the members of the congregation might take a last view of the features of their departed choirmaster. The church was largely visited during the evening and many beautiful floral wreaths were laid upon and around the coffin. Amongst these was one from the members of the Cathedral Choir, another from the members of the Wellington Amateur Operatic ociety (of which the deceased was conductor) and also one from the Public WOrks Department. St Mary of the Angls choir sent a beautiful floral cross and numbers of other wreaths came from private sources. At 9 o'clock this morning a solemn Requiem mass was sung at the Cathedral, in the presence of a large congregation and his Grace Archbishop Redwood delivered a panegyric upon the deceased, referring principaly to his universal popularity and noble work as a musician. The service at the grave, whither the coffin was followed by a great number of the personal friends associates of the deceased, were conducted by the Very Rev Father McNamara. Here the choir sang an anthem and many additional floral tributes were placed upon the coffin.
The choir of the Cathedral decided at a meeting held last evening to erect a memorial stone over the grave of their late revered conductor. The congregation will also be asked to join in the movement in order that a substantial memento may be reared
