Evening Post, 12 April 1877 PAINFUL ACCIDENT - A most painful accident occurred at Mr Tonks' hay and corn store, Manners-street, this morning to a man named Philip Fauvel. It appears that it was Fauvel's duty to hoist bales of hay, & c., from the basement of the store to the first floor by means of a rope and pulleys. He was assisted in this work by a steam engine, round one of the shafts of which the rope was fixed. While he was in the act of hoisting a truss of hay about 11 o'clock this morning, the rope got twisted by some means and Fauvel seemed to lose his presence of mind, for, instead of letting the rope go, he was whirled round and round several times. He was unable, after he had been taken round once, to get free from the rope, which twisted round his arms. One of his fellow workmen, who witnessed the occurrence stopped the engine as quickly as possible, but before that was done Fauvel had sustained some very serious injuries. Dr Harding was immediately sent for and on his arrival he found that the unfortunate man's forearm was broken and crushed above the elbow. Two of the fingers of his left hand were torn off a the first joint and his breast was injured. Dr Harding, having attended to the immediate wants of the man, advised that he should be sent to the Hospital. Fauvel was conveyed to that institution in an express.

Wairarapa Age, 11 April 1911 KAIPARORO - Last week a farewell social was tendered to Mr P. Fauvel, who has been a resident of the district for the past twenty years. The hall was crowded with visitors, many of whom came from long distances.

It is Mr Fauvel's intention to re-visit his native home in Jersey shortly
