NEWSPAPERS of the day
.. ADSETT On the 22nd September, at Feilding, Hannah, the beloved wife of Henry Adsett, junr., aged 26 years. Deeply regretted. Canterbury papers please copy.
.. We deeply regret to announce the death of Mrs Hannah Adsett, the wife of Mr Henry Adsett, junior, son of Mr Harry Adsett of the Manchester Mills, Taonui, which took place to-day. The deceased had been suffering for about a year from consumption (TB), therefore the end was not unexpected. She was a daughter of Mr John Pawson, a much respected settler who with his family came here from Akaroa, Canterbury, about the time of the foundation of this settlement. She leaves one child. The greatest sympathy is felt for the young husband who thus early loses his wife and for the other relatives left to mourn her loss.
.. The friends of the late Mrs Adsett are requested to note that the funeral procession will leave her late residence Denbigh and Princes street at two o'clock in the afternoon punctually. It will be necessary for them to be in attendance a little earlier to enable the cortege to be marshalled in time.
.. The funeral of the late wife of Mr H. Adsett, junr., took place on Sunday, it being the largest private funeral that has ever taken place in this district. The cortege included a large number of vehicles of every description, and about 170 horsemen. Mr Henry Curran officiated at the grave, assisted by Capt. Needham, of the Salvation Army. The proceedings were very effective and general sympathy was expressed on all sides with the relatives and friends of the deceased

died 29 June 1908 aged 67
NEWSPAPERS of the day
.. 23 June 1908, The serious illness of Mr H. Adsett, Colyton, is causing sincere regret amongst a very large circle of friends. Needless to say, widespread sympathy is felt for him and his family and hopes are expressed that he may yet recover.
.. ANSETT - On June 29, at his residence, Manchester farm, Colyton, Henry, beloved husband of Ellen Adsett, aged 67 years
.. The death is announced of Mr H. Adsett, a resident in the Feilding district for about 30 years and who carried on business as a sawmiller with success. He then entered into farming pursuits at Colyton, where he passed away on Monday at the age of 67
.. Mr HENRY ADSETT, who had been laid up for some time lately, died at his residence, Colyton road, at 11 o'clock last night. His death was altogether expected by his family and relatives, who are nevertheless overcome with grief at his departure. The cause of death was cancer, from which he had been suffering for a long time and the most careful medical attention was of no avail against the fell disease. Mr Adsett arrived in Feilding about thirty-five years ago, having been one of the first settlers in the Manchester Block. He first took up his residence in Denbigh street, at the Prince street corner and engaged in sawmilling. This occupation he followed for many years and was a very successful business man. Later on he took up a clock of standing bush on the Taonui road near Colyton and, having cut out the bush, he built a residence on the land and resided there ever since. He owned considerable property in Feilding and Palmerston and had built a number of dwelling houses in various parts of both towns. A great many people will miss the deceased gentleman for his unassuming kindness and generosity. He was never appealed to in vain for help and the settlers in his locality have without exception the best of regards for their departed neighbour. He did good by stealth and never had any desire for the glare of public life. Besides his widow, Mr Adsett leaves five sons and four daughters to mourn the loss of a loving husband and father, The sons are - Harry (now at Levin), Arthur (Dannevirke), George (Main Trunk Line), Albert (Dannevirke) and Walter (at home). The first four sons are married and have always follwed sawmilling pursuits and the youngest has managed the home property. The daughters are - Mrs J. Laing (Colyton) and Misses Louie, Charlotte and Dudu Adsett. With their numerous friends and acquaintances we extend our sympathy to the sorrowing family
.. The remains of the late Mr Henry Adsett, of Colyton, were laid to rest in the Feilding cemetery yesterday afternoon. The cortege was over a mile in length and there were many old friends of deceased from every part of the district present, which bore ample testimony to the very high esteem in which he was held by all who knew him.
The Rev Alan Innes-Jones, of St John's church, conducted the service at the church and subsequently at the grave in a very impressive manner. A number of beautiful wreaths and other tokens of respect were laid on the grave.
A very old resident of Feilding and a personal friend of the late Mr Henry Adsett, supplies the following particulars of the deceased's career. He arrived in Feilding in'74, coming to the colony in the sailing ship Salisbury the Second to visit our shores under charter to the Manchester Colonist and Aid Corporation formed in London by the Duke of Manchester, Colonel Feilding and others. Mr and Mrs Adsett took up their residence in a bark whare known as the barracks, which was erected somewhere in the vicinity of the present Courthouse. Prior to coming to the colony Mr Adsett was an overseer in charge of a shipbuilding yard (department) and shortly after his arrival in Feilding started pit sawing somewhere about Marlborough street in company with Mr Chas. Baker. After about six months at this work he, with a number of others, assisted to make the present Kimbolton road to the Kiwitea river. Then he went to work for Messrs Batholomew and Manson, sawmillers, at Terrace End, in Palmerston and afterwards took the cutting by contract at Malcolm's mill at Sandon and remained there for some years,subsequently returning to Aorangi, where he took the cutting at Bulls' mill by contract and from there he went to Taonui, where he purchased West's and Collins' interests in a small mill and has resided there ever since. Mr and Mrs Adsett were special favourites among the early settlers in the Feilding district and were known far and wide for their kind-hearted disposition and many acts of a generous nature
