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

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.

- great bio and photo of Bartholomew in his 57th Uniform on this site
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.

20 March 1860 A very distressing affair has recently occured at Pahautanui, Porirua Bay.

SULLIVAN, Daniel - 3 Sep 1856 aged ?

SULLIVAN, Daniel - 4 Sep 1880 aged 25 (buried 18th)
16 Sep 1880 The body found in the harbor has been identified as that of Daniel Sullivan, a laborer, aged 25, a native of Ireland. He was last seen on Saturday 4th September when in low spirits through inability to obtain employment and it is said he expressed his intention of drowning himself
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.
