American soldiers in New Zealand during World War 2

From the Auckland Museum website
"Auckland Museum has recently digitised a unique and heart-warming set of photos of US servicemen stationed at Warkworth, a provincial town in northern New Zealand, during the Second World War. These servicemen were in New Zealand in preparation for their departure for the Pacific theatres of war."
"Can you help us identify these US servicemen?
Unfortunately none of these photos are captioned so we don't know who these men are. Similarly, families in the US may never have seen these photos of their menfolk.
It would be wonderful for families or the men themselves to contribute to these photos with the names of these men."

There is a wide range of photographs from posed individual portraits and group shots to more casual photographs of servicemen fishing and enjoying themselves. If you had a family member in the US military who spent time in New Zealand during World War two they are well worth checking out.

Subdivision of the township of Henderson, Auckland 1881

From Papers Past

New Zealand Herald, Volume XVIII, Issue 6037, 24 March 1881, Page 4

The sale by Messrs. B. Tonks and Co. of the township of Henderson, on Tuesday, was probably the most successful land sale which has been held for a long time. The attendance was numerous, the bidding spirited, and considering the distance of the township from Auckland, the prices realised were excellent. With the exception of a few township sections all the lots were sold.

What's in name 3. Eliza Jane (Jenny) Perry/Rimmer/Collins and Fredrick or William Rimmer

Eliza Jane (Jenny)(sister of Essie) was born at Bombay, Auckland on the 9 June 1878,the third daughter of Thomas and Eliza Jane Perry.

She attended the Ramarama School from 27 October 1884 to 24 September 1891 when she left to help around the farm.

Some time around 1895 she went to live with her married sister Essie in the city as she wished to have a change from farm life. When her sister died in 1898 leaving two young children she stayed to look after them and at the end of 1899 she married her brother in law Frederick William Henry Rimmer.

She had one child to him, Ivy (19 December 1900). He later left her with the three children to look after and by the beginning of 1902 the oldest child Ella is being cared for by Thomas Perry at Bombay as indicated in the Ramarama School admissions for that year.

Also about this time Bill Collins met Jenny and together they took the responsibility of raising Albert - the younger of Essie's children,and Ivy - Jenny's daughter by Rimmer.

Between 1903 and 1913 Bill and Jenny had four sons and a daughter.
From birth records they lived at Arch Hill, Adelaide Street, Spring Street and finally by 1913 to their house at 71 Beresford Street.
Jenny died at her home 71 Beresford Street in 1948.

As far as I can tell Frederick Rimmer never divorced Eliza but did enter a third marriage in Canada under the name of William Rimmer but later reverted to the name Fredrick Rimmer when his third wife died.

I can find no record of Eliza and William Collins marrying.

This post is based on the research of Laurie Collins and my late father Murray Griffin.

What's in a name 2, Essie (or Esther?) Ellen Elizabeth Perry

Essie Ellen Elizabeth Perry born 26 Jan 1873.
Daughter of Thomas Perry and Eliza (or Elizabeth - see my previous Whats in name journal entry) Jane nee Logan.

The Flay Family Tree shows her name as Esther and at first this seems reasonable as her grand mother and one of her aunts is named Esther but her birth certificate and marriage certificate to Fredrick William Henry Rimmer 28 Feb 1896 shows her name as Essie.

I note that her first child Ella Jennie Elizabeth was born before her marriage and was registered with the surname Perry born 16 Oct 1895. No father was recorded. Ella's marriage certificate to George William Kitson 1913 shows her surname as Perry although some family trees show it as Rimmer.

Essie Ellen Elizabeth Rimmer died 27 November 1898 6 days after the death of her 2nd son Cecil John Thomas Rimmer approximately 5mths. old.

But in her death notice in the Auckland Star she was robbed of her own name, listed simply as the wife of Fred Rimmer and second daughter of Thomas Perry.

Waikumete Cemetery where she is buried has her listed as Essie.

This post is based on the research of Laurie Collins and my late father Murray Griffin.

What's in a name, Eliza or Elizabeth Jane Perry nee Logan?

What's in a name
Eliza or Elizabeth

Eliza Jane Perry nee Logan
I have seen several Family Tree's with her name shown as Elizabeth Jane.
Her headstone at the Bombay Presbyterian Cemetery shows her name as Elizabeth Jane (but this is only a recent marker not one erected at the time of her death)

I can't find any baptism or christening record for her in Ireland

However
1 The first NZ record of her is the Passenger list of the ship Dauntless
Which left Dublin Ireland 30 Dec 1864 and arrived Auckland, New Zealand 2 June 1865
Her name is recorded as Eliza

2 On her marriage certificate to Thomas Perry 6th Jan 1867. Her name is shown as Eliza Jane

3 On the birth certificates of 3 of her children
John Thomas Perry (1867)
William Henry Perry (1876)
Eliza Jane Perry (1878)
her name is shown as Eliza Jane

But on 2 of her daughters birth certificates
Mary Ann (1871)
Essie Ellen Elizabeth Perry (1873)
her name is shown as Elizabeth

4 On her death certificate her name is shown as Eliza Jane and her age as 61

I also note that she had niece in Ireland who was christened Eliza Jane although this is also some times shown as Elizabeth.


This post is based on research by Laurie Collins and my late father Murray Griffin (husband of one of Eliza's great grand daughters)

EARLY ADELAIDE. Survey and Land Grants. Names index A-E

Whilst searching online for one of my ancestors, Hibernia Smyth, I found a letter to the editor by him that had been reproduced in a New Zealand publication but had originally been published an Adelaide newspaper. So I tried searching in Trove database of digitised Australian newspapers.
Among other things I found this article about the early land grants in Adelaide with a full list of names. I wasn't even aware Hibernia had been in Australia before coming to New Zealand so I figured the list might be useful to others and I haven't been able to find it anywhere else online.
So I have created an alphabetical index to the personal names in the land grants. To read the original article follow this link.
The numbers beside each name relate to plot numbers, the article and accompanying map will help you locate where in Adelaide they are.
