Joseph Hanley CUDD + Ann Matilda SARTEN - Birmingham to New Plymouth

JOSEPH HANLEY CUDD (1841-1889)
born in Ireland to James CUDD (1816-1852) & Eleanor Helen DIGNAM (1816-1852)

Joseph married 3 Sep 1863 in St Mary's, New Plymouth, to:

ANN MATILDA SARTEN (1846-1887)
- (BDM say she died aged 50 in 1887 which is a birth year of 1837)
- 4th of 12 children of Edmund SARTEN (1817-1860) from Dorsetshire & Lucy Rodd LYE (1814-1898) from Somersetshire, England & buried in New Plymouth, Taranaki
OBITUARY of Lucy Rodd Sarten who died in New Plymouth 1 Dec 1898 aged 85
- (my additions are obvious)
... It is with regret we now note that another of the very earliest settlers of this settlement has passed away in the person of Mrs Lucy Sarten, relict of the late Mr Edmund Sarten, She had, by an unassuming and trustful disposition acquired many friends and will be remembered as one who had undergone, with rare fortitude, the recking vicissisitudes of pioneer life, with the still more poignant fatalities of war.
The deceased had exceeded the allotted term of life by many years. Having been born in Martock, Somersetshire, in 1814; married in 1836; left Plymouth with her husband and her father's family - the late Mr John Lye - in the ship 'William Bryan' in November 1840, arriving at Moturoa on March 30th 1841.
Edmund Sarten, her husband, died in 1860. There were twelve children, two of which died in sick bed. John Edmund, the eldest, was killed at Waitara, during hostilities in 1860, and Joseph met with his death by a Maori ambuscade party at the Te Henui in the same year. Thus there are now left five sons and three daughters to bereave their loss namely,
... Messrs

18 June 1879 William Cudd - Taranaki
- William died 19 Nov 1883 aged 4
- he is buried in an unknown location at Te Henui cemetery, New Plymouth


New Zealand TIMELINE

Nov 1875
... Joseph & Ann and their children John aged 8, Emma aged 6, George aged 4 & Alice aged 1 return to New Zealand on the Mataura and settle in Taranaki

24 Dec 1877 - Taranaki
... JOSEPH CUDD, having purchased the apparatus from Mr S. Howell, sen., has commenced business as CHIMNEY SWEEP

30 Jan 1878 - Taranaki
... An accident happened yesterday about 4 o'clock to a man name Joseph Cudd. The man in question was engaged turning a windlass, when by some means the handle struck him on the forehead, severly bruising and discolouring the face and eye


19 Feb 1880 - New Plymouth
... At the Colonial Hospital, on the 19th February, Joseph Cudd, aged 39 years, of disease of the heart.
The funeral will leave the Hospital at 12.30 p.m. to-morrow, when friends are invited to attend
- he is buried in an unknown location at Te Henui cemetegry, New Plymouth


8 Nov 1880 - Taranaki
... On Saturday evening last Mrs Joseph Cudd had a narrow escape from being run over by the train from Inglewood. She had just reached the railway crossing in Devon-street, near Miss Retford's shop, as the train was approaching the crossing, when she stumbled and fell across the rails. Constable Day was on duty at the time, and seeing the accident, he, with great presence of mind, dashed forward and picked Mrs Cudd up off the ground just in time to save her from being run over. This was a most providential escape and great credit is due to Constable Day for the fearless manner in which he went to the rescue at the risk of his own life. As it was, Mrs Cudd sustained several injuries about the face and hands. We think that it is a great mistake for the trains to run down the incline across Devon-street at the rapid pace which they usualy do and it is time instructions were given to apply the break sooner, or some accident will inevitably result. Additional precautions should be observed in giving timely notice of the approach of the train by means of prolonged whistles


from the site New Zealand History online... photo of the Sarten family grave at St Mary's Church, New Plymouth.
Three members of the Sarten family died during the tumultuous year of 1860. John Edmund Sarten had the somewhat dubious distinction of becoming the first official fatality of the Taranaki War when as a member of the mounted volunteers he died from wounds received during the assault on Te Kohia on 17 March. His father Edmund died in August and his brother Joseph was killed in a raid on the village of Henui in December.

From the site Early New Zeland Photographers (includes his photo & written 1885)
... Mr Shailer, Photographer, has adopted the use of electricity in connection with his business, and he finds the saving of labor and time to be really astonishing. The battery is principally used for the work of re-touching negatives. The wire being attached to the re-touching pencil held in the hands of the artist keeps the pencil in a continued rapid movement so that it has merely to be moved quietly over the surface of the negative instead of the old style of marking out separately and slowly every little blemish appearing on the glass. The time alone saved by this method in an ordinary carte de visite is about an hour and three quarters

OBITUARY of George William Shailer
26 Nov 1918
... Mr George Shailer died in Palmerston yesterday, after a lengthy illness, 71 years of age. He landed in Wellington with his wife and four daughters from the sailing ship Ocean Mail on February 2nd 1874.
Later he travelled from Foxton to Palmerston by train, which in those days was drawn by horses and put up at the corportaion barracks at Terrace End, afterwards proceeding to Feilding by dray, the members of the party having to take a Government tent with them to provide accommodation. At Feilding Mr Shailer engaged in contracting for the erection of houses, some of the first buildings in Feilding being erected by him, while he and three shipmates felled and cleared the bush and bridged Warwick street. He then took up a 40 acres section at Makino, which he successfully farmed until he was obliged, on account of ill health, to relinquish the land and engage in the photographic business in Feilding. Thirty-six years ago he purchased Mr T. Kirkwood's business in Palmerston, which he successflly conducted until 25 years ago, when he retired and took up land at Hokowhitu. Here he engaged in the fruit-growing industry, with which he was connected up to the time of his death.
He leaves a widow and a grown up famly of six sons and six daughters:
Mrs J. D. Smith, Palmerston North
Mrs G. T. Woodroofe, Foxton
Mrs D. Collis, Kairanga
