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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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
