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

Journal by ngairedith

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

CIMINO, Captain Salvatore - 11 Aug 1899 aged 90
In 1848 Salvatore was a Grocer form Italy when he was Naturalised in Wellington
12 Aug 1899 At 11 o'clock last night Mr Salvatore Cimino, one of Wellington's original settlers, passed away at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr G. H. Fisher, in his ninety-first year. The early portion of Mr Cimino's life was one of adventure. Born in Capri, on the coast of Italy, and the third son of a captain in the Royal Italian Navy, the young Italian came to New Zealand in 1840 on the vessel by which Dr Featherston came to the colony (the Olympus). Being a skilled seaman, he soon obtained a cutter known as the 'Fidele', and in her, cruised along the West Coast of this island, supplying settlers and natives with stores from Port Nicholson. Later on he sold the Fidele, and became the possessor of the 'Fly', which soon had the reputation of being the smartest sailer along the colony's coast. Mr Cimino traded to Lyttelton with her, and from his first trip established records in that the cutter frequently left Wellington, landed a cargo at Lyttelton took on board another load and was at anchor in Port Nicholson again within eight days, the owner clearing £300 (equivalent n 2012 of $54,500) as a result of one such voyage. That was in the fifties when the voyage to Lyttelton and back frequently occupied some sixteen days. Mr Cimino afterwards set up business in Wellington but reitred from active commercial life twenty years ago. Up till twenty-five years ago he was also for some ten years a partner with Mr John O'Meara in pastoral pursuits, first on Kapiti Island and later in the Wairarapa. He was twice married, first to Miss Wright, who predeceased him by forty years, and afterwards to Miss Hickey who died a few years ago. Mr Salvatore Cimino (Manager for Messrs. Chas. Begg and Co.) and a daughter were the offspring of the first marriage. Miss Cimino died whilst yet a girl from shock received during the great earthquake of 1855. Of the four daughters by the second marriage, Mrs G. H. Fisher (George Henry, who married Margarita Cimino in 1896), Mrs William Fisher (daughter-in-law of Mr George Fisher, M.H.R.) (William George, who married Mary Cimino in 1896), Mrs E. P. Bunny (Edmund Percy, who married Brunetta Lucia Cimino in 1892) and Sister Mary Liquori (of St Mary's Convent) are all resident in Wellington. Mr Cimino, despite his great age, was to be seen about town until a fortnight ago, and he passed away peacefully in the presence of his family, after an honoured and respected life

16 Nov 1936 A very large circle of ex-pupils and friends will learn with sincere regret of the death of the Rev Mother Liquori, which occurred yesterday.

Oct 1847 In the matter of John Power Collins, a prisoner for debt in the gaol of Wellington, under the power of this court, at the suit of Thomas Hughes. Thomas Floyd, the gaoler, applied for the discharge of the prisoner under the 29th clause of the Court of Requests Ordinance, which enacts that: "Every creditor at whose suit any person shall be imprisoned shall pay to the gaoler of the prison wherein such person shall be confined the weekly sum of two shillings towards the maintenance of such prisoner, and on proof being made to the Commissioner on oath of the said jailor, on any court day that two such weekly payments are due and in arrear, the Commissioner shall order such prisoner to be forthwith discharded from custody at the suit of the creditor of failing to pay the same". It appeared from the statement of the gaoler that there had been two such weekly payments in arrear, but that a payment had been made on the day previous to his application, which reduced the sum due to less than two weeks' money. The gaoler not being in a position to make the oath required, the Court could not grant the application

CORLISS , Mortimer Patrick - 6 Nov 1893 aged 74
8 Nov 1893 A face which has been familiar to many of our readers for a number of years has been removed from our midst. We refer to Mr Mortimer Corliss, who passed quietly away at his reidence, in Nairn-street, at 20 minutes to 1 o'clock this afternoon, surrounded by his wife and family. The late Mr Corliss was a native of Ireland, and joined the Royal Artillery when a young man. In 1853 or 1854 he left Home with his regment in the 'Polish Star'. The vessel was burned at sea, but all on board were rescued and taken to St Helena, afterwards returning to England. The next attempt to reach this part of the world was more successful and Mr Corliss who was for many years a non-commssioned officer, has been in New Zealand ever since. When the troops left the colony, Mr Corliss remaind behind. At one time he was keeper of the Wellington magazine, at another period he was in charge of the quarantine station on Somes' Island, and for some years he was also Instructor to the D Battery. For some months before his death he was confined to his bed with dropsy, and he also had the misfortune to lose his sight. Deceased who was much respected, leaves a widow and a family of five sons and three aughters to mourn their loss.
The Colonial Secretary, as Acting-Minister of Defence, authorised a military funeral for Mortimer

CORLISS , Philip 'Phil' Cashman - 17 April 1891 aged 30
20 April 1891 All that was mortal of Mr Philip Corliss, late accountant in the EVENING POST office, was laid to rest in the Roman Catholic cemetery yesterday afternoon. The funeral was the largest seen in Wellington for a very long time. All sections of the community were represented so general was the popularity gained for the deceased by his estimable person qualities and his invariable personal qualities and his invariable kindness of heart to all with whom he came in contact. Every person now in Wellington connected with the EVENING POST office was present, from the proprietors and editor of the paper to the smallest run-boy. Each department of the office sent a floral wreath with an appropriate printed inscription. The proprietors lamented the loss of a "Good and faithful servant"; the commercial department mourned "A colleague whom all esteemed"; the literary department recorded their feeling that deceased was "A genial comrade and an honest friend"; the compositors deplored "The loss of a genial friend"; the machinists commemorated "A trusty friend deservedly respected"; and the run-boys were sorry for the demice of "One whom we regarded as a friend". There were very many other wreaths and crosses contributed by sympathetic friends, and the staff of the Canterbury Times also paid their last tribute of respect to the deceased in similar form. The employees of other Wellington newspapers and printing offices were present in large numbers, and when the funeral procession was properly marshalled it must have been a fully quarter of a mile long. The chief mourners were: Mr Mortimer Corliss, father of deceased, Mr W. Corliss, brother, and Mr F. G. Gannaway, brother-in-law. The services at the chapel of St Mary of the Angels and at the grave were conducted by th Rev Father Doherty.
6 July 1892 The memorial stone which the New Zealand friends of the late Mr Philip Corliss, subscribed to place over his grave in the Catholic Cemetery, is now in position. The base is of Waikara blue stone, on which a block of polished marble rests, and above this is a tablet of white marble supported by red granite colums, each of which is surmounted by a cross. On the top of the tablet there is another cross. The following inscription appears on the memorial stone:- "In loving memory of Philip C. Corliss, who died 17th April, 1891, aged 30 years. R.I.P". Erected by his numerous friends as a sincere token of the esteem in which he was held. The grave is surrounded by a concrete wall, on which an ornamental fence is erected. The stone, which stands eight feet high, is an exceedingly handsome one and was supplied and erected by Mr Walter Mansfield, of Sydney-street, in three weeks from the time he receive the order.
- An unsigned "In Memorium" appeared in the Evening Post every year after that. Some said "In loving memory of Philip C. Corliss who died 17th April 1891, aged 30 years. Ever in fond remembrance". In later years they simply said "In fond memory (or affectionate memory) of Phil Corliss". On the 30th anniversary of his death, 17 April 1921, it read "In memory of Phil Corliss, who departed this life on the 17th April, 1891. In affectionate remembrance". The insertions then went back to reading "In affectionate memory of Phil Corliss" until 1928, after which they stopped

15 Sep 1893 Musical circles in Wellington suffer an irreparable loss through the death of Mr Hugh Curry, who passed away at his residence yesterday afternoon, at the age of 72. Deceased was a native of Newport, Isle of Wight, and enlisted in the 65th Regiment at Barbadoes in the year 1834, when only about 14 years of age. His regiment remained for some time in the West Indies, after which Mr Curry served in North America and Australia, eventually coming to New Zealand, where he received his discharge in 1860, having by that time attained the rank of sergeant. Mr Curry then settled in Wellington, where he has lived ever since, and for some time was employed as a messenger at the Government Buildings. Of later years he has enjoyed well-earned leisure, but his musical services have always been in requisition for orchestral purposes, as he was one of the most capable players upon the French horn of his day. It is related that before he came to the colony he was offered an opportunity of joining the famous Coldstream Guards Band, but that he refused to do so, as room could not also be made for his brother. Mr Curry leaves three sons and three daughters, all resident in Wellington, and for his own unobtrusive and amiable character his death will be widely mourned. It is worthy of note, as a strange coincidence, that he died on the sixth anniversary of his wife's death, and the twelfth anniversary of his brother's.
