the 'residents' of MOUNT STREET CEMETERY, Wellington from 1841 ... Me-Mu 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

MORIARTY, Patrick - 2 May 1878 aged 22
2 May 1878 A fatal accident accurred this morning, on what is known as Oakes'contract at the Rimutaka tunnel, at which one man was killed and another severely injured. At daylight this morning several men went to work to remove the wooden scaffolding or "centering" placed underneath the roof of the tunnel, about four chains from the face at the Feathersotn side, while the concrete blocks with which it is lined are fixed in their proper places and cemented together. The lining of that portion of the tunnel from which the scaffolding was being removed had been finished about 14 hours, and the concrete blocks were supposed to have set firmly together. The unfortunate sequel, however, proved this not to be the case, for no sooner was the support of the scaffolding removed than the roof of the tunnel suddenly fell in burying the two unfortuate men under a mound of concrete blocks, earth, and stone. Their fellow-laborers promptly set to work to extricate them, which was a work of considerable difficulty and danger owing to the falling stones, and they had literally to be dug out. One of the buried men, Patrick Moriarty, on being got up, was found to be quite dead, having been killed on the spot, and completely crushed by the decending mass. The other, John Matheson, was found to be still living although badly injured and fearfully disfigured, having received the chief force of the blow on his face and neck. He was brought into town as speedily as possible by train, and taken to the Hospital, where his wounds were carefully dressed by Dr Johnston and Mr Monteith. His face is cut and laccerated in a most appalling manner, one fearful gash across his forehead having to be stitched up and he is severely bruised and crushed all over, but it is hoped that his injuries may not prove fatal. He was quite conscious at three o'clock this afternoon, and there are hopes of his recovery. Both Moriarty and Matheson are single men, and about 30 years of age. The unfortunate mishap occurred shortly after seven o'clock this morning
... Moriarty was about twenty-five years of age, single, and as far as is known had no relatives in the province. His body was removed to the nearest building to await an inquest, which will be held to-day. The accident is atributed to faulty construction of the framework
... John Mathieson was severly injured and is expected to lose the use of both eyes

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

MADDIGAN, Thomas - 5 March 1884 aged 50
5 March 1884 Thomas Maddigan, tollbar keeper at Kaiwarra, has met with a serious accident. He was standing on the railway line, watching the train pass and thought he was clear, but the cow-catcher caught and threw him some six feet in the air, his thigh being smashed and head badly cut. He died last night from the result of the injuries, which proved more serious than was at first supposed. It is stated that his brother was killed in a somewhat similar manner in England
8 March 1884 At the inquest on Maddigan, who was killed on the railway line, a verdict of "Accidental Death" was returned. The evidence showed that the train was going at the rate of 17 or 18 miles an hour. The whistle was sounded and every effort was made to warn the deceased and stop the train, but without effect. He was standing with his back to the line, apparently taking no notice

MAHER, Martin (misreported as Daniel) - 23 Feb 1876 aged 23/25
25 Feb 1876 The body of the unfortunate man Daniel Maher, who was killed by a fall of earth at tthe Mungaroa tunnel on Wednesday last, was brought into town to-day, and will be buried in the Roman Catholic Cemetery. Maher was only about thirty years of age and was highly respected by all who knew him. It appears that the accident occurred through the neglect of Maher to "sound" the tunnel before going into it. An inquest was held yesterday, when an inquest of "accidental death" was returned. Dr Newman was sent for immediately after the accident happened, but Maher died before he arrived
26 Feb 1876 We fell into a slight error yesterday when we stated that the inquest on the body of Daniel Maher took place on Thursday. It was held yesterday before Mr Beetham, J.P., and a jury. The verdict of the jury was that Daniel Maher was accidentally killed by a fall of rock in the Mungaroa-tunnel. A rider was added, to the effect that the working of the tunnel was attended with great danger in its present untimbered state

23 July 1897 I regret (writes our Wellington correspondent) to record the death of Mr Richard Maher, which took place on the 8th instant at the residence of his brother-in-law, Mr Michael Bohan, Cuba-street, Wellington, with whom the deceased resided for many years. Mr Maher, who was about 60 years of age, was born near Templemore, County Tipperary, and came out to Victoria over 30 years ago and after remaining in that colony for some time, he, in company with a number of friends, left for the West Coast diggings in this colony where he soon made many friends. Deceased has two brothers in Ireland as well as a number of relatvies, two brothers in San Francisco and another sister besides Mr Bohan in New Zealand. During the course of a long and tedious illness the deceased was regularly attended by the priests of Te Aro parish and received the last sacraments immediately before his death from the Rev Father O'Shea. The interment took place at the Catholic cemetery on Sunday, 11th inst., the funeral cortege being very large, the number present bearing striking testimony to the esteem in which the deceased was held. The services at the church and graveside were performed by the Rev Father O'Shea. R.I.P.

18 Dec 1918 Another old resident, in the person of Mr Michael Thomas Marhall, of No.1, Owen-street, died at his residence recently. Mr Marhall was born in County Kerry, Ireland, 73 years ago, and came to New Zealand when a young man 44 years ago, his first experiences in New Zealand being in Taranaki, where he resided for two years. Subsequently he took up his residence in Wellington, where he was engaged by the City Council, and was employed by that body for 40 years, retiring from the service some two years ago. Deceased, who was of a quiet and retiring disposition, was one of the pioneer members of the Hibernian Society and assisted in the formation and establishment of that society in Wellington. He continued his membership right up to his death. The interment took place at Mount-street Cemetery, the Rev Father Campbell, S.M., at St Anne's, Newtown. The officers of the Hibernian SOciety acted as pall-bearers and amongst those present were the Mayor and the Crown Solicitor (Mr J. Prenderville). Mr Marshall has left a widow, three sons (Messrs T.

MATHERS, Captain Alexander - 4 Jan 1885 aged 36
9 Jan 1885 The New Zealand Company's ship 'Opawa' arrived from London last evening, at 7 p.m., and anchored off Kaiwarra. On learning of the death of her captain, we made application and were supplied with the chief officer's report of the occurrence as follows: - "At seven bells on Sunday (4th inst.) the master Captain Mathers, came on deck; it was my watch at the time. He had a sextant in his hand, and he remained conversing with me till he had taken the sun for noon in the usual way. He had been ailing for several days and complained of pains in his chest. At about 1 p.m. the same day he came to me and said he would lie down and desired to be called at dinner time, at 4 p.m. I did so, and he stated he felt worse and told me to go to dinner without him. After dinner I went to his cabin and found him worse; he was up and dressed. Seeing that his mind was affected, I got him to bed and then left him in charge of the chief stewart in order to get some medicine. At 6.55 p.m. he got up and dressed. At 7 p.m. he went forward, closely followed by the steward; he reached the forecastle-head and suddenly tried to jump over the starboard side, but being prevented he said he would go aft. Hearing the captain had left his cabin, I ran out, only reaching the after-hatch in time to see him leap from the forecastle ladder on to the starboard pig-stye and then over the side. I immediately gave the necessary orders and rushed on to the poop, seized the after starboard life-buoy and threw it within a foot or two of him. I then superintended lowering the life-boat, which was in the water in four minutes. The captain was picked up abou a quarter of a mile away, in ten minutes from the time he was first in the water. Mr Campbell, the second officer, who was in the boar, stated Captain Mathers was under the water head down, when picked up. Everything was done to bring him round, but I consider life was extinct when he reached the ship. In faint hopes, however, of restoring life, I had him rubbed with hot blankets for over two hours and a half. At 10.45p.n., being certain life was extinct, I had him washed and laid out". Captain Mathers was a gentleman long and favourably known in Wellington, having made several trips here. He was 37 years of age, and leavs a widow and small family in Scotland. No reason can be assigned for his jumping overboard, but it is believed that the illness had deranged his mind. It was noticed for a fortnight previously that the deceased was far from being in his usual state of mind, though his condition was not considered to be serious. The body of Captain Mathers was brought ashore this afernon and taken to the morgue. The inquest will be held to-morrow at 10 o'clock.

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

LAFFIN, Emily - 15 April 1877 aged 28
10 April 1877 Michael Laffin was charged with drunkeness and assaulting his wife. Emily stated in court that three days after she gave birth and while she was still ill in bed, Michael had turned her out of the house, struck her on the head because she had told the doctor that he had given her nothing to eat and then had threatened to murder her with a knife which he had in his hadn if she did not die soon because he could not afford to keep her and her two children. Sergeant Monaghan said prisoner did not seem to like work and was a lazy character. His Worship advised Mrs Laffin to take out a protection order against the man ...
- Emily returned to her home and there, with her two little children was totally dependent on charity of her neighbours or starve to death. A few days later she was found lying on the floor in an unconscious state. She was taken to hospital where she died

7 June 1880 Mary Lazary, a disreputable-looking creature, was brought up on a charge of being drunk and disorderly. She stoutly denied the accusation, affirming that she was a "decent, honest, English girl" and did not come out to the colony to be insulted by having the clothes torn off her back in the public streets. She did not pay her passage here for that - she came here after her brother. She was a respectable married woman. The Magistrate aid there were no fewer that 31 previous convictions against the prisoner. Prisoner - That's because my husband is up the country and won't come down to keep me. His Worship imposed a penalty of 1 or 48 hours imprisonment. The woman said she was much obliged, but would "see the minister about it" when she came out of gaol
8 Sep 1880 A woman named Mary Lazary, one of the notorious of the bad characters in this city, died in the gaol this morning, at a quarter to nine. She had been a frequent inmate of the prison during the last 14 years and during the last few month had hardly ever been out of Mr Read's care. An inquest will be held in due course in accordance with the requirements of the Act. The deceased was 40 years of age (sic) and the number of previous convictions recorded against her amount to 45. Her last conviction took place on the 16th of June last, when she was sentenced to undergo three months' imprisonment with hard labor for vagrancy
11 Sep 1880 An inquest on the body of Mary Lazary was held at the Gaol yesterday afternoon, before Mr Shaw, R.M. and a jury of twelve, of which Mr Anderson was chosen foreman. Dr Johnston, who had attended the woman during her imprisonment, stated that she was wasting away owing to her intemperate habits and latterly she had rapidly become weaker and weaker, till on Wednesday last death resulted from exhaustion. The matron said deceased was admittted on the 16th June and several nights previous to that she had been lying out on the grass. Deceased was in a deplorable condition when received. While in gaol she always refused to take the medicine prescribed and gradually got worse. She was 35 years old and was serving her forty-first sentence. The jury returned a verdict of "Death from exhaustion through atrophy"

3 Feb 1874 On the 3rd February (accidently killed by a fall of earth, in Hill street) James (sic) Long, aged 30 years
At the INQUEST he is again called James Long ... An inquest was held at the Shepherd's Arms, Tinakori road, yesterday afternoon, by the District Coroner, touching the death of Jas. Long, who had been killed by a fall of earth in Hill street, on the previous day
9 Feb 1874 GEORGE Long, who died so suddenly on Friday, was buried yesterday afternoon, in th Roman Catholic cemetery. In the same procession there was carried a coffin containing the remains of Mrs Pike, the wife of one of the men employed on the railway, who had died suddenly in the Hospital. Both coffins were carried by working men who are engaged on the railway or other public contracts and they followed in large numbers. The funeral service was conducted by the Rev Father Cummins. Unfortunately the people attending this and another funeral were caught in the heavy downpour of rain, and most were thoroughly drenched
There has been collected on behalf of the widow of the unfortunate man Long, who was killed by a fall of earth in Hill-street last week, a sum of money amounting in all to 105 0s 6d (equivalent to $12,900 in 2012). This sum has been paid to Father Cummins to invest for Mrs Long. It will be the means of securing her the possession of the cottage in which she lives

LONG, James - ???
POSIBILITY is this the George Long above who was for some time named James??

LONG, John - 6 Feb 1874 aged ?
7 Feb 1874 John Long, a brother of the unfortunate man who was killed on Tuesday, died very suddenly yesterday. In the morning he felt ill, and called on Dr Grace, who gave him a draught and sent him home to bed. Father Cummins, who called shortly afterwards, found Long so ill that Dr Grace was sent for, but on his arrival he found that nothing could be done to save the poor fellow's life, and he died in Father Cummin's arms at half-past six o'clock p.m. It is supposed that death resulted from internal inflammation. The deceased leaves a widow in destitute circumstances, and a correspondent states "she is almost without a friend or home, or wherewithal to bury her husband." Long had thought that his wife was delicate and lately effected an insurance on her life, but he seems to have neglected insuring his own life. As Mrs Long is within a few days of her confinement, the case is one which needs immediate attention at the hands of some of the benevolent ladies of Wellington. The poor woman has been so prostrated by her husband's sudden death that she is in a very precarious condition, and fears were entertained for her safety last night

LONG, John Joseph - Feb 1874 aged 8 days
- John Joseph was born to the wife of John above (her name not yet known) a few days after his father's death. John Joseph died a week old so this is probably him

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

KANE, Edward William CMG, J.P. - 16 July 1934 aged 75
- (12 weeks after his wife Rosetta, below)
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 mourners attending Edward's funeral
- the Prime Minister, George William Forbes moved a motion expressing appreciation of the services rendered to New Zealand by Mr Kane. The late Mr Kane had been a very zealous officer, said Mr Forbes, and had alway maintained the tradition of Parliament

KANE, Henry Russell - 24 June 1870 aged 55
- husband of Catherine Honora above
24 June 1870 On June 24, at his reidence, Bolton-street, Mr Henry Russell Kane, aged 55 years
25 June 1870[ H. R. Kane, an old setter, lately a draper here, was found dead in his bed this morning; it is supposed that heart-disease was the cause of death, as he was apparently in good health
28 June 1870 H. R. Kane, formerly a draper here, was found dead in his bedroom on Friday (24th) morning. He had fallen, in a fit, on to the bedstead, which compressed his neck so as to cause strangulation. He was apparetnly in good health the night previous
28 June 1870 Very little that the public were not already cognisant of was elicited by the inquest held on the remains of Mr Kane, who died so suddenly on Friday morning. The different members of deceased's family who were examined all agree in saying that deceased had not indulged in any excess the night before his death that might be likely to tend to apoplexy; that in fact he had been more temperate than usual. But it appears from the evidence of Mrs Kane, that deceased had awakened in the morning very early and moved about the room for his clothes. He was found dead resting with his head on the rail of the bed. The deceased had always been a healthy man, who had never shown a predisposition to fits, the supposition that death was the result of strangulation on the V of the beadstead, while in a fit, might have permitted some slight doubt; but as Mrs Kane says that deceased had about a fortnight before been complaining of a numbness in his right hand and arm, there is no doubt the coroner was right in saying that the numbness described must have been a precursor of paralysis, and that death was principally caused by a paralytic fit. The jury found as their verict that "Deceased had died from strangulation caused by pressure on the neck through falling on the V of the bedstead while in a fit"
- Henry was in Wellington before 1847, which is when he signed, as a Memorialist, the Despatch to the Lord Bishop of NZ
- in 1858, he was on the Electoral Roll as a Draper living in Lambton Quay

KEARNEY, Patrick - 3 Nov 1890 aged 49 (PDF has 60)
Patrick was born Ireland in 1841. He married Hannah Kelly in London about 1862. They boarded the 'Berar' in London on 17 Oct 1874, arriving in Wellington 22 Jan 1875. With them were 2 children, James aged 12 and Richard aged 4
1 Nov 1890 On 1st November 1890, at his residence Tinakori-road, Mr Patrick Kearney, aged 49; deeply regretted by a large circle of friends. R.I.P. The Friends of the late Mr Patrick Kearney are respectfully invited to attend his funeral, which will leave his residence, Tinakori road, on Monday, the 3rd instant, at 3pm. - P HOSKINS, Undertaker
1 Nov 1890 Mr Patrick Kearney, an old servant of the Corporation, died suddenly early this morning at his residence Tinakori road. Yesterday he was at work in the yards as usual, but last evening he complained to his wife of feeling unwell, having pains about his body, and he accordingly went to bed. Later on in the evening Mrs Kearney despatched her son with a message to Dr Cahill. The doctor attended at 5 o'clock this morning and found that Mr Kearney was then dead. The presumed cause of death is heart disease. The Coroner is holding an inquest at the Karori Hotel as we go to Press.
3 Nov 1890 An enquiry into the cause of the death of Patrick Kearney, an old employee of the Corporation, was commenced at the Karori Hotel on Saturday afternoon by the District Coroner and a jury of six, of which Mr. William Southee acted as foreman. Richard Kearney, son of the deceased, was examined, and the enquiry was then adjourned until 9 o'clock this morning to enable Dr Cahill to make a post mortem examination of the body. The doctor attributed death to fatty degeneration of the heart, and the jury accordingly returned a verdict that Death was due to Natural Causes
IMPORTANT NOTE His wife Hannah remarried 7 years later to Michael O'Shea. She died 11 November 1909 and was buried in the Roman Catholic Plot 40 at Karori. 4 weeks later, on 7 Dec 1909, Patrick was buried with her (& a number of other family members). This, of course, means a disinternment from Mount Street Cemetery.

KEARNS, Sergeant T. - 1852
- of the 65th Regiment
17 April 1900 LETTER TO THE EDITOR of the Evening Post
... Sir, The recent discovery of the tombstone of Sergeant Kerns (or Kearns), late of H.M. 65th Regiment, is of more than passing interest, not only to those now remaining who were connected with the Regiment, but also to the Provincial District of Wellington, with whose early history the "Royal Tigers" were so closely identified. I have not the slightest doubt that my late father, who was at the time in charge of the military hospital, would have been one of the non-commissioned officers by whom the stone was erected, and therefore, beside the historical interest inseparable from the discovery, it comes to me as a pathetic reminder of my very early days, and of old Mount Cook, the place of my birth. I do not, of course, remember Sergeant Kearns, as I would only have been about two years old at the time of his death, but I have in my youth frequently heard of him, and his name is most familiar to me. My object now in writing is with the view of having the stone renovated and properly taken care of, and I would suggest that a suitable niche might be found in the Roman Catholic Church in Buckle-street, as being the church of the communion to which the late Sergeant belonged nearest to the old Mount Cook Barracks, where the headquarters of the 65th were so long stationed. May I, through you, express my readiness to assist in every possible way the carrying out of my suggestion, or of any other suggestion from the reservation of what I cannot but feel is to Wellington an interesting historical relic. - I am, etc., A. T. MACINNITY, Nelson 17th April 1900
20 Aug 1930 LETTER TO THE EDITOR of the Evening Post
... THE 65th REGIMENT. Sir, In your answer to correspondents in "The Post" of Saturday last, referring to the 65th Regiment, you do not mention the arrival in Auckland in November, 1846 of the ship Java, with part of the regiment. My wife was born on that ship, when sailing into port on the 15th November. Part of that force must have reached Wellington shortly after, for a detachment was stationed out Paremata (Porirua) way in 1848, when Mr Bezar was two years old, and the Maori decided to steal her. This reached the officer's ears, and he sent mother and child into Wellington for safety. Her father, Sergeant Kearns, died rather suddenly in 1852, after a march out ... more
NOTE - 22 May 1907 Mrs. A. Bezar, wife of Mr Edwin Bezar, of Berhampore, died yesterday. The deceased lady, (says the Post), was a daughter of Sergeant T. Kearns, of the 65th Regiment, and was born on board the troopship Java as the vessel was sailing up Auckland Harbour 60 years ago. When she was two years old a portion of her father's regiment was ordered to the Wellington district, and for some time it was stationed at Porirua. Sergeant Kearns brought his family with him. In consequence of a report that the Natives intended to make an attempt to kidnap the child, the officer in charge at Porirua sent the mother and her little girl into Wellington for safety. In 1866 Miss Kearns was married at Wanganui to Colour Sergeant Bezar, of the 57th Regiment, then stationed in that part of the colony, and with the exception of a year spent in Dunedin, she has resided in Wellington provincial district during the whole of her married life. Mrs Bezar has left a family of five sons and five daughters (from a family of 13), eight of whom were present when she died. There are 16 grandchildren

KEEFE, Daniel - 10 July 1876 aged 57
- born in Dublin 1819. Soldier in the 58th Regiment and in the Spanish Legion. Chief messenger at the Government Buildings. Crier & Usher to the Wellington Supreme Court
11 July 1876 The sudden death of Mr Daniel Keefe the crier of the Supreme Court has created a profound sensation. About five minutes before the Court opened he was preparing the Judge's seat and books for His Honor the Chief Justice. At 10 o'clock, to the surprise of those present, instead of his genial face and spectacles being seen in the crier's box, and his pleasant voice and rich brogue being heard prolaiming the opening of the "Shuprane Coart", the bailiff of the R.M. Court appeared in his stead and performed the ceremony with which Mr Keefe so long had been associated. A minute later all present were shocked to learn that Mr Keefe had died suddenly just after quitting the Court. It appears that, when he left the Court, he went into his own office, complaining of illness and suddenly fell down dead. The deceased had held his appointment for about four years. He was an old soldier and had seen a great deal of service, alway being distinguished for his bravery and good conduct. He served in Spain for a long time under General Sir (George) De Lacy Evans, about the years 1840, in the Spanish Legion - first in Infantry, and then in the Artillery. He was at several memorable engagements and sieges, including the storming of San Sebatian (Mr Keefe was for many years in the Stamp Department when the seat of Government was at Auckland)
15 July 1876 A subscription list, in aid of the family of the late Mr Daniel Keefe lies at this office, and we shall be happy to receive contributions. A memorandum has been found among the papers of the deceased, containing some particulars of his services in Spain. Mr Keefe was a native of Dublin and enlisted in the British Auxiliary Spanish Legion in August 1835, landing in Spain the same month under command of Major Harley.
He was personally engaged in the following actions:-
* Aralabar (in Alva), 16th, 17th and 18th anuary 1836
* relief of San Sebastian and storming lines, 5th May, when he received a medal and was promoted to the rank of full portal
* passage of the Urumea and taking of passages, 28th May

* general actions of 1st October before Ametza, and of the 10th, 13th, 15th and 16th march 1837, before Herani, when he was wounded
* storming and capture of Irun, 17th May, when he received another medal. During this compaign he served under Lieut-Cols. Fitzgerald Cotter (who was killed in the action of 16th March) and Canning.
Sergeant Keefe also served:
* during the campaign of 1838, 1839 an 1840 in the provinces of Gupuscoa, Navarre, Arragon, Valencia and Catalonica against the Carlists
* and was present at the battles of Balascoin 1st May 1839
* Arroniz 11th May
* Allo 15th July
* at the siege and taking of Segura, February 1840, of Castalote in March and of Pennaroya in April.
* He was in the Mora-de-Ebro expedition the same month, and at the siege and taking of Morella in May
* also at the taking of Berga in July
* He received two crosses of the order of Isabella II for his bravery in the above mentioned actions
* He next joined H.M. 58th Regiment in 1841 and landed in Sydney in 1845 and on the regiment being ordered to New Zealand, was present at the action at Wanganui on 26th July 1846. He was promoted to the rank of Corporal in 1851 and Sergeant in 1854 and received free discharge, with one years pay, in 1855, to become a settler in Auckalnd. The INQUEST

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

25 April 1865 An inquest was held on Saturday at the White Swan Hotel, in Cuba street, before Dr Boor, Esq., Coroner, and a respectable jury, on the body of the late Mr Jeremiah Harrington, an old settler, who expired suddenly at his own residence about three a.m. on Saturday morning. The jury, after hearing the evidence, returned a verdict of 'died from natural causes'

HARRIS, Walter - 21 August 1871 aged school boy
- his body was found 3 weeks later and he was buried 15 Sep 1871
22 Aug 1871 A little boy, named Walter Harris, has been missing from his home since about 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. He was last seen fishing from the piles under the Queen's wharf
14 Sep 1871 INQUEST. The body of Walter Harris, who had been missing since the 22nd of August, was found this morning, near the wharf, in the sea. An inquest was held this afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Pier Hotel, by the Coroner, Dr Johnston, when the evidence of J. A. Willett, a boy 15 years of age, was taken: He said about three weeks ago he was on board the bargue Haversham, close to the wharf, and he saw the deceased go down underneath the wharf to wash his face. He asked witness to go with him, but he would not. Witness did not see him again; he thought it was all right, and that he had gone home. Witness had been called away, and he, for the time, forgot all about him, so he did not know whether he came up or not. He heard next morning that Harris was missing. William Harris was the next witness. He said on the 21st August his nephew, Walter, who lived with him, left home between 9 and 10 o'clock, ostensibly to go to school. As he did not come home that evening, witness went to look for him on board which he knew; but he was told the boy had left there about half-past 2 o'clock with Willet. The vessel was searched by the police and other persons, but the boy was not seen since. He searched about town till four o'clock next morning. He came to the conclusion he was drowned, and he had searched all round the bays since. He heard this morning that the body was found. He identified it by the clothes and boots to be that of Walter Harris. The body was quite decomposed. The evidence of William Ashbridge as to some shout which he heard underneath the wharf on the 21st of August was given. He thought it was from some boys sky-larking down there and paid no attention to it. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental drowning" with a rider that some steps should be taken by the Provincial council to prevent boys fishing and playing under the wharf
16 Sep 1871 Misfortunes seldom come singly and an illustration of it occurred yesterday. As we stated, a child, named Delany, was run over in Willis-street, and seriously injured. It seems that the boy had been a playmate of the unfortunate young Walter Harris, who was drowned and little Delany, accompanied by his father, was going to the funeral of the deceased. The father crossed the street for an instant to speak to an aquaintance and in attempting to follow him, the boy met with his accident. About the same time that this occurred, an elder brother of the injured boy was returning from school and was severely kicked by a horse in Cuba-street, and carried home within a few minutes of his brother, both being very seriously hurt. To-day the elder boy is a little better, and will soom be round, but the younger one, over whom the wheel passed, is in a very dangerous state

The coffin, containing the remains, was then placed on the gun-carriage and covered with the union jack, on which were laid the cap and accoutrents of the deceased, and the procession was reformed and proceeded to the Roman Catholic Cathedral, where the prayers for the dead were repeated by the Rev Father Petit Jean, who afterwards addressed to the crowded congregation a few impressive and appropriate words.

Mrs Huett was born in Edinburgh and came to the colony with her widowed mother and several brothers and sisters in the ship 'Olympus' in 1841. The famly took up land in the Waikato and suffered great hardships during the war, their home being burned. They were robbed by the natives, who spared their lives because there was no man living on the property as protector. Mr HUett's mother, Mrs Graham, died soon after from the shock.

For some time past Mrs Huett had not been in good health and was attended in her last illness by the Rev Father O'Reilly and passed peacefully away fortified by the rites of the Church. Her death, which occurred at Kenwyn-terrace, was not unexpected. The Rev Father Moloney officiated at the church and graveside. Mrs Huett is survived by her husband, a son and three daughters (Miss Huett and Mesdames J. A. Dudson of Carterton and W. Dudson of Rangitikei)

bio of Jesse Huett - AN INTERESTING CAREER
... The recent death of Mr Jesse Huett, for many years Chief Messenger in the Government Buildings, Wellington, removed an old settler who had a very interesting career.
Mr Huett was born at East Brent, Somerset, in 1824, and at the age of 12 left his home to go to sea. He was for some yearrs on different vessels trading in the Mediterranean, having had enough of the sea, he enlisted in the 58th Regiment of Foot at Westminster in July 1842, being sent to Dublin, where the regiment was then stationed. In 1844 the regiment was sent out in detachments to New Zealand, the first to arrive being that sent from Woolwich on board the Lord Auckland, escorting some 200 prisoners to Hobart, whence they went to Sydney, and there embarked on the North Star, a 26-gun frigate, arriving at Auckand on the 24th March 1845.
They could not rest for long, as the celebrated Hone Heke was on the warpath. The detachment first came into touch with Heke at Okariti, the Maori retiring to Owaiowai, which was attacked by the 58th and other reinforcemens, with great loss, on 1st July. Notwithstanding the warnings of Tamata Nana Walker, in charge of friendly Ngapuis, Hone Heke left the pa and got clear away with all his men to Ruapekapeka. The fighting which took place at the latter place was rather severe and a great deal of time was spent getting a sufficiently strong force together. Earthworks and stockades were erected withing 400 yard of the pa, and later an advanced battery was completed, 160 yards from the pa, and a breach opened in the defences on the morning of 11th January 1846. No persons were seen moving about. A few friendly natives under William Waka went forward to make observations, entered the breach unobserved and beng seen by the men in the nearest battery, another hundred troops immediately rushed up, gained the inside of the pa unoberved by the enemy also, who were sheltering on a piece of sloping ground inside, and after a short but sharp engagement the celebrated pa was captured. Considering the enormous strength of the place, the troops were to be congratulated on their achievement. The 58th,under Lieutenant-Colonel Wynyard, was among those specially mentioned. The regiment then returned to Auckland. Shortly afterwards, however, things looked bad at the Hutt and they came down to Wellington in 1846, proceeding to the Hutt.
Mr HUETT was present on the occasion of that well-known incident of our local history, when Bugler Allen of 58th, sounded the alarm, though wounded. Later Mr HUETT engaged with the rest of te regiment making the road through to Porirua and was finally in at the death when the notorious Te Rauparaha was captured.
In 1855 Mr HUETT was appointed Orderly Sergeant at Government House, Aucland to Governor Gore Brown, of who, he had many interesting reminiscences. After being in that position for over three years, he got his discharge from the army in October, 1858, after over fifteen years service. He joined the Government Service in January 1859, being first attached to the Attorney-General's office and among other duties he claimed to be the first librarian appointed by the Government, but with little to look after. He came to Wellington when the seat of Government was remmoved from Aucland, and finally retired from the service in 1900, being at that time assistant officer-in-charge of the Government Buildings.
He married at Auckland in January 1859, Miss Mary Graham, third daughter of Mr James Graham, of Edinburgh. His wife predeceased him some nine years, since when he has been living with his youngest daughter, Mrs W. A. Edwards, of Berhampore, who, with two other daughters, Mrs J. A. Dudson, of Carterton an Mrs W. Dudson, of Gisborne, together with twenty-one granchildren, survive him

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

GARDNER, Elizabeth Gertrude "Cissy" - 13 March 1887 aged 17
14 March 1887 It is with deep regret we have to record the melanchoy death, yesterday afternoon, of Miss Elizabeth Gertrude Gardner, youngest daughter of Mr W. A. Gardner, lately of the Colonial Architect's Department. "Cissy" as Miss Gardner was familiarly and affectionately known by a large circle of friends was some time ago attacked by rheumatic fever, and, as usual, other ailments, aggravated by a cold taken while still very weak, followed this terrible complaint. Dropsy supervened in one of the knees and this led to extensive disease of the bone of the leg. Everything that surgical skill could do was done by Dr Cahill, but after minor operations had failed, it was decided in consultation that amputation of the leg above the knee was necessary to afford a chance of life. This operation was performed yesterday by Dr Mahon, assisted by Drs Collins and Fell, but the unfortunate young lady never rallied from the effects of the anaesthetic and the shock of the operation, and she expired about three hours afterwards. The deceased young lady was a general favourite with all who knew her, and the most sincere sympathy is felt for Mr and Mrs Garner in their great loss
14 March 1887 The Friends of Mr WILLIAM ALFRED GARDNER, are invited to attend the Funeral of his late Daughter (Elizabeth Gertrude), which will leave his residence, Mulgrave-street, TO-MORROW (Tuesday), the 15th instant, at 8.15 a.m., an St St Mary's Church, Hill-street, at 9 a.m. - W.

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

FLANAGAN, Patrick - 13 Dec 1874 aged 29
14 Dec 1874 We regret to notice the death of Mr P. Flanagan, well known as the managing clerk from Messrs Hart and Buckley (Barristers & Solicitors) and highly popular as a genial and pleasant companion. Some few months ago Mr Flanagan was seized with a severe cold, which settled on his lungs and developed the seeds of consumption, of which disease he died yesterday. He had for some weeks been conscious of his approaching end. Mr Flanagan was a member of the Artillery Volunteers, and will be buried with military honours to-morrow afternoon.
16 Dec 1874 The remains of the late Mr Patrick Flanagan were interred in the Roman Catholic Cemetery yesterday afternoon with military honors, the deceased having been a gunner in the Wellington Artillery Volunteer Corps. The fine band of corps preceeded the cortege playing the usual dirges. Mr Flanagan's loss will be much felt among the cricketing fraternity as he was a good bowler, and in the celebrated Auckland match very nearly turned the fortunes of the day by his successful efforts in the direction in the Auckland second innings. He was put on as a "change" and his first ball separated Mumford and,Yates who had held the wickets for above an hour. He also took three other wickets.

EDWARDS, Lady Mary Ann (nee SAYERS, formerly CUTTEN, formerly GEORGE) - 21 July 1935 aged 78
23 July 1935 An old resident of Wellington, Lady Edwards, widow of the late Sir Worley Bassett Edwards, a Judge of the Supreme Court of New Zealand, died at her residence on Sunday last. She was formerly Miss Mary Ann Sayers, of Wellington, and except for some years passed in Dunedin, spent her life in this city. Requiem mass was celebrated at St Mary of the Angels Church today. The interment was private
... Worley Bassett Edwards (1850-1927), ... Admitted to the Bar in 1875, Edwards served the balance of his articles with C. W. Cutten, a schoolfriend, then practised law with him at Oamaru, and at Wellington with A. de B. Brandon, and then with W. S. Moorhouse (later joined by Cutten). He took offence at what he regarded as breaches of faith by both Brandon and Moorhouse. With the help of Cutten's father, Edwards and Cutten bought out Moorhouse. By the late 1870s a stable and profitable partnership had been established. In 1881 Edwards unsuccessfully contested the Wellington South seat in Parliament. On Cutten's death, in 1885, he embarked on practice on his own account and on 2 June 1886, at Wellington, married Cutten's widow, Mary Ann Cutten, formerly George. Although Edwards wrote of the marriage as one of real love, there was rumour of conflict, chiefly over her extravagance with money. The five children of her two previous marriages joined Edwards's household. They took his name but were never formally adopted by him. A son, Godfrey L'Estrange Waller, the only child of the marriage, was born in 1890.

31 Oct 1883 FATAL ACCIDENT AT KAIWARRA News of a distressing accident at Kaiwarra was brought into town at an early hour this morning. The accident, which was unfortunately attended with fatal consequences, occurred on the works in connection with the formation of the Wellington-Manawatu railway, the particular spot where it happened being in a cutting, for which Mr J. Saunders is the contractor, situated about 100 years above the Kaiwarra schoolhouse, and only a short distance past the first tunnel on the line. At this cutting a gang of five men were employed under Mr Scanlon, foreman, in letting in a "drive" through a hill. When completed the drive will measure about a couple of chains, but up to this morning very little headway - only a few yards - had been made with the job. The men started work as usual at 8 o'clock this morning. Three of them viz., John Scanlon, foreman, P. Mulvahill and J. McIvor, were engaged immediately within the drive, and the reamining two - Thomas O'Malley and John Enright - were employed in shovelling the "stuff" which the others loosened into a dray standing with a horse attached to it directly in front of the drive. Suddenly at half-past 8 o'clock, while the men were so employed, a terrible fall of earth ensued. The earth came down from the sides of the cutting. It consisted of hard rocky stuff, and had evidently been loosened by the recent rains, revealing on one side a natural smooth, hard facing, down which, of course, the stuff came rolling without any obstruction. Enrght and O'Malley, the two men occupied in lifting the loose stuff into the dray, with a view of "tipping" it elsewhere, were unhappily caught under the fall of earth which must have weighed close upon 50 tons, but the other three luckily perceived the danger in time, and had the presence of mind to jump back into the drive, where they escaped unhurt. The earth fell directly on top of the dray, which it smashed into a thousand pieces and the horse, startled by the strange noise, bolted at full speed into the township, miraculously escaping without a scratch. Meanwhile Enright and O'Malley, the unfortunate draymen, lay buried beneath the debris, and the remainder of the gang were unable to afford any assistance for some time by reason of being "pinned in" at the mouth of the drive. Immediate help, however, was at hand, and numbers of men at once set to work to rescue the unhappy victims. It was exactly three quarers of an hour before Enrigt and O'Malley were exhumed, and then of course they were discovered quite dead.
John Enright was about 25 years of age, and had worked for Mr Saunders for some years. He came from Dunedin, and had latterly been working for Mr Saunders on his Makitoke contract from which he was withdrawn quite recently in order to assist at the Kaiwarra works ... more

DEE, Maurice Edward - 6 Jan 1867 aged 25

De GEORGE, Peter - 19 Jan 1885 aged 48
- the PDF has 1 Nov 1883
- Information was received in town last night that a dreadful accident had happened in a tunnel on the Wellngton and Manawatu railway works - that the tunnel had fallen in and that several men were bured beneath the debris. The news of the mishap was telephoned to town by Mr S. Brown's overseer, Mr Laughton, but no particulars were then given. Later on, however, some details were sent through, and from these we glean the following particulars:- A party of twelve men were working in the No. 8 tunnel, situated between Pukerua and Paikakariki. The stuff they had been removing in order to widen the ends of the tunnel was composed of rotten rock and the walls and sides had to be timbered until the brick lining could be effected. Yesterday afternoon the men had removed some of the planks from the roof, when, without much warning, the heavy timbers gave way and the roof of the tunnel caved in. Nine of the men succeeded in reaching a place of safety before the earth came down, but three men were buried beneath the debris, viz., Peter de George, Henry Lloyd and Matthew Panzadetti. Mr Laughton having been sent for, relays of men were at once put on to clear the tunnel and rescue if possible the men entombed. After much labour the workers heard the faint voice of Panzadetti, who said he was free from earth and could move his limbs. He further said he could hear groans from a man buried beneath another block of earth behind him. Mr Laughton then teleponed to town for medical assistance, and Mr Gillon was last night despatched by the s.s. Tui for Pukerua Bay, where he expected to be landed at midnight. The steamer was about to start thither with material and Dr Gillon, with commendable promptitude, hastened on board with a view to rendering surgical aid if necessary. Meanwhile those at the scene of the accident made every preparation for the reception of the men should they be brought out alive.
Our own correspondent at Paikakariki, writing last night, says:- At half past 3 this afternoon a serious, and it is feared fatal, accident happened in what is known as No. 8 tunnel on Mr S. Brown's contract, on the West Coast Railway, the Pukerua-Paikakriki section. In this tinnel the drive had been put through, and the shift were employed in breaking out or enlarging the opening to the full size, when without the slightest warning two sets of timer, representing a length of 24 feet of the tunnel, fell in, completely burying in the fall, three of the men engaged - Peter De George (an Italian), Matlio Panzadetti (an Austrian) and Harry Lloyd (a native of Lancashire). Every effort is now being made, under the direction of Mr J. Laughton, the manager, to effect the liberation of the unfortunate men, who, up to the time of writing, have been buried over six hours. I have just returned from the scene of the accident, which is about three miles from Paikakariki, and at the time of my visit the rescuing party had got sufficiently near the sufferers to be able to speak to one at least - the man Panzadetti, a young fellow of about 20 - who said he was lying between some of the timber, that he could see the ligts of the rescuers, but that he feared they would not reach him in time. Of the other men little is known. Groans can be heard at intervals, but whether they proceed from De George or Lloyd could not be ascertained. A large number of men are employed in the work of rescue and as only a few can be employed at once, arrangements have been made for the workers to be relieved at short intervals.
Peter De George is an old West Coast miner, well known in the Grey and Reefton district. The other men engaged on the 'shift' escaped uninjured. It may perhaps, be opportune to remark that each shift is under the guidance of an experienced and trustworthy miner, and the only reason for this unfortuate catastrophe is that the gound in this particular tunnel is of an unusually treacherous nature, being a loose slaty drift
23 Jan 1885 THE PUKERUA TRAGEDY. Our Paikakariki correspondent writes under date Thursday evening that the enquiry into the cause of death of Peter de George was opened twice on that day, at 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., and that the Acting-Coroner finally adjourned the enquiry until the body of the third man was recovered, as the men employed in the work were required as witnesses. He further adds that he had explored the tunnel from end to end during that day; that the work of clearing away the fallen timber and rocks is one of considerable danger and difficulty; and that it may be some days yet before the remains of Lloyd are found. Thirteen witnesses are already subpoened, and the number may be further increased, for it is said some evidence is to the cause of this lamentable affair will be forthcoming
