passengers of the "Ruahine" - Wellington Jan 1926

In compiling info on George Edmund GUMBRELL for an enquiry, I could not find the passenger list online for the "Ruahine" which left from London and Southampton and arrived in Wellington, via Panama, in early 1926

I found a list of saloon passengers on Papers Past & taken the liberty of transcribing it here in alphabetical order for easier reading:


the RUAHINE'S PASSENGERS FROM HOME - Evening Post 23 January 1926
... After a passage of 35 days from Southampton, via Panama, the New Zealand Shipping Company's liner Ruahine arrived in the stream at 11 a.m. today, and was berthed at 1 p.m., at King's Wharf. Cargo was loaded at London and the Ruahine sailed from there at 11 a.m. on 17th December for Southampton, where passengers were embarked, and mails taken aboard. The vessel sailed from Southampton at noon on the following day. The run across the Atlantic, was accompanied by good weather as was the trip from Panama, until the vessel met bad weather yesterday. The usual fancy dress balls, dances, and deck sports were held, and the passengers spent an enjoyable time. Two deaths occurred after leaving Panama. The Ruahine averaged a little over 14 knots.

GENEALOGY CHALLENGES (week 34)

of all the 'mindboggling' challenges there are in researching ancestors, I have found that the women, by far, are the toughest challenge.

one woman who sticks in my mind was 'the wife of'!! Mr Feodor Vassluyev, a Russian peasant woman, who in the 40 years from 1725 to 1765 lived in Shuya, Russia, became pregnant 27 times, not once did she have a single-child birth and yet, nothing was ever recorded about her - NOT EVEN HER NAME

she had a TOTAL of 69 CHILDREN
- 16 sets of twins
- 7 sets of triplets
- 4 sets of quads


As someone said, HALF of all our ancestors were women
The reasons and politics behind this neglect of women's roll in history can be (and often has been) argued and debated and each one of us has a sad story to relate on amazing female relatives who have gone unsung


It was very difficult for me to choose just one woman to highlight in this weeks journal as all of them are heroes in my eyes, all of them went through the most amazing hardships in their lives but we seem to focus a lot on that, when, I'm sure, they also had a lot of joy and delight. We are aghast at their huge families of a dozen and more children but each child had a role to play and became a great help. The boys worked outside with their fathers and learnt to plough the fields. The girls worked inside with their mothers and learnt how to run the house and to turn the house into a home, how to wake early and make the bread, go out and milk the cow to make the butter, learnt how to sew to make everyones clothes, to chop the wood to light the fire to boil the water to wash those clothes, then how to starch the clothes for everyone. How to plant the garden and grow the veges to cook all the meals (the said stove never went out, just keep the wood supply up). How to climb the trees to pick the fruit to make the jams and preserve the rest for winter and to make the apple pies. How to tell poisonous plants from herbal ones to make into remedies to administer to sick members of the family whilst you nursed them 24/7. How to clean the house without aerosols and micro-cloths, vacuum cleaners or a tap in the house which you could just turn and water came out ... :o) couldn't resist THAT plug for women everywhere!!!

Anyway, I have chosen ELIZA ROIL. She was a daughter of *Thomas Royall & Sarah Sewery and with her parents and 4 siblings arrived into Nelson, New Zealand 2 Nov 1841 on the BOLTON. *mainly becaue of illiteracy, various spellings of the surname were used and up to the early 1800s ROYAL, ROYALL, RYAL, RYALL, RIAL, RIALL etc were used. However, the predominant spelling was ROYALL

Now, although Nelson (the second-oldest settled city in NZ) is one of the most beautiful and picturesque places on the planet, it had a major drawback: it lacked suitable arable land because of its situation on the edge of a large mountain range. Surrounded by mountains on three sides, on the shores of Tasman Bay, in those days there would have been an abundant of fish, which brought many fishermen to the area

Eliza was 15 when she arrived in Nelson. There she met a Fisherman, in fact, a larger than life Whaler James Hayter Jackson. She married him a year after arriving in the colony. Emma was 16 and James was 43. She had 9 children with him and survived him by 33 years, yet, try as I might, I found little about her.
James Hayter Jackson (Captain Jimmy Jackson) was a Mariner/Whaler. An amazing man, so interesting and exciting to research. A hard working, hard drinking man and much has been written about him
... He is said to be one of the first 50 settlers in New Zealand, arriving in 1829 in command of the brig BEE. He spent the early years on Kapiti Island Wellington living with the Maori rangatira (chief), and war leader Te Rauparaha. He set up his own whaling station in (what is now called) Jackson's Bay, Tory Channel, Marlborough
The Dictionary of New Zealand's Biography on James is a good read on his life .. Jackson first came to New Zealand in 1829, as mate of the schooner Waterloo , which was under the command of Captain John (Jacky) Guard. The schooner left Sydney on 31 May 1829 and ended its voyage at Te Awaiti, on the south-east coast of Arapawa Island, in Tory Channel. Jackson became second in charge under Guard at New Zealand's first shore-based whaling station, situated at Tar'white, as Te Awaiti was called by Europeans. Like many other whalers at Te Awaiti, Jackson entered into a form of marriage with a Maori woman, with whom he is said to have had several children .. ANOTHER woman, so important in his life and in the shaping of early New Zealand, that we know nothing about

I did find that Eliza (who later became known as Granny Jackson) "became as tough as any whaler's wife and could, according to the family, swear in two languages with great proficiency on the slightest provocation." (a family legend of course, as there were no swear words in Maori)
There is some info on Eliza if you can get your hands on the illustrated book:
Colonial tears and sweat : the working class in nineteenth-century New Zealand, written by Julia Millen


have you ever tried to research Mrs J. Smith when you know that J. was HIS name and not hers?? some of the very helpful sites when researching women:
INVISIBLE WOMEN ANCESTORS
... The individual identities of women who lived prior to the twentieth century are often very tangled in those of their husbands, both by law and by custom. In many places, women were not allowed to own real estate in their name, to sign legal documents, or to participate in government. Men wrote the histories, paid the taxes, participated in the military and left wills. Men were also the ones whose surname was carried into the next generation by the children. As a result, female ancestors are often neglected in family histories and genealogies?listed with only a first name and approximate dates for birth and death. They are our "invisible ancestors."

13 June 1905 ... Philip Eva, a man of 52 years of age, residing at Egmont road, applied at the S.M. Court on Monday for an order against his two sons, Harry and Philip Eva, to contribute towards his maintenance. The applicant stated that he had been partially blind for the past 12 or 18 months, otherwise he would not ask a penny. He was without employment, and had no means whatever. His wife was in the hospital, and there were four younger children residing away from home. Harry Eva, trainer, stated that he had always helped his father a little. He was quite willing to consent to an order, but did not want to see the money go in drink. The Magistrate made an order against each of the sons for payment of 5s per week, warning the applicant that if he drank, the order would be revoked. Eva (who explained that he had taken the proceedings on the advice of the Charitable Aid Board) asked whether he could not issue a similar summons against each of his two unmarried brothers. "They are pretty well in," he informed the Bench. Mr Hutchison said that brothers were certainly "near relatives" as defined in the Act, and that Eva could proceed against them

WALDREGOM - MURDER-SUICIDE at St Bathans - 1879

Saint Bathans is a former gold and coal mining town formerly named Dunstan Creek. It lies deep in the heart of the Maniototo in New Zealand's Otago region. Mining has long ceased, and it is a tranquil holiday retreat. The preservation of many of its historic buildings makes it one of the region's more picturesque tourist venues. St Bathans is well known for its scenic man-made lake with beautiful looking clay cliffs that attract many tourists.

lots of info with drawings & photos of Historic St Bathans


I recently found this article in the 'New Zealand Herald' of 10 January 1879.
the name Waldregom does not appear anywhere else in records I have searched. Maybe it is a misspelling. If you know of these people please leave a message in the comment box below

10 Jan 1879
... A suicide and attempted murder occurred on the 8th inst., between Ophir and Black's.
Mrs Waldregom was riding on horseback in company with a friend who was driving a reaping machine. They were going through one of the lonely parts of the road, with great rocks lowering all round, when suddenly a man, supposed to be Mrs Waldregom's husband, jumped out from ambush and presented a shot-gun at her. She was a little behind her friend and called out "Don't shoot me, Waldregom," bending her head under cover of the horse's neck to protect her face and breast. He immediately fired, and the contents of the gun lodged principally in her right arm, lacerating it to a frightful extent. Her horse, which received a portion of the shot in the shoulder, and that of her friend, bolted.

When her friend heard the report he looked round and saw Mrs Waldreom fall, and the man rapidly reloading his gun. He lifted the injured woman up and carried her to a Mrs Law's residence. She was very weak and bleeding profusely.

Next morning a search pary went out to arrest Waldregom and found his dead body behind a rock. He had shot himself.

Mrs Waldregom is now lying at the Commercial Hotel, St Bathans, under the care of a local surgeon, who thinks it wll be possible to save her arm.
Waldregom had been absent two years, during which time he had contributed nothing to the support of his wife and family.

Great sympathy is expressed in the district for Mrs Waldregom, who has resided there fourteen years, and is noted for her industry
