Frank Wilson ARBON (1864-1928)
Komako, Manawatu
Manawatu Times, 1 Aug 1928
General regret was felt throughout the Manawatu district yesterday, when it became known, that one of the oldest and best known settlers of the Pohangina Valley had passed away, in the person of Mr Frank Wilson Arbon. The late Mr Arbon was a gentleman well known outside his own district, his activities in public life bringing him in contact with many. Particularly his interests lay in Pohangina, for which district he had worked for many years, as one of the best known settler "up the Valley" and also as chairman of the Pohangina County Council.
The deceased gentleman was born in Swanage, England and came to the Dominion 42 years ago, when he commenced farming in the Pohangina Valley. As one of the oldest settlers in that locality, the late Mr Arbon was always to the fore in serving its interests on various local bodies concerned with the district. He was also a life member of the Manawatu and West Coast A. and P. Association, this honour being conferred upon him as some recognition of his services as president of that body in 1911 and in previous and subsequent years, as an energetic committee-man.
The late Mr Arbon had represented the Pohangina district on the Manawatu-Oroua Electric Power Board since the inception of that body and through his death, the district has lost a man who represented it worthily, whenever he was called upon. Deep sympathy will be extended the family in their sad bereavement - a widow and two sons, Messrs Geoffrey and Mervyn Arbon, of Pohangina, are left to mourn their loss

Evening Post, 9 Sep 1943
The death has occurred of Mr Benjamin George Henry Burn, a Wellington resident of long standing who had devoted much of his lifetime to serving the interests of the community. Mr Burn, who was 80 years of age, resided in Karori, where his prominent part in district affairs led to his becoming a Wellington city Councillor when the Karori borough became part of the city. Mr Burn was born in Cornwall, England. He was trained as a weaver for four years at Culbert and then sailed from Liverpool for New Zealand, landing in Wellington in 1879, just after the big fire in Manners Street. After two years in the city, he worked for Messrs T. Campbell, of Karori and A, Fitchett of Brooklyn, at farming and dairying, for several years. Later he served with the firms of Messrs W. G. Turnbull and Co and Messrs W. M. Bannatyne and Co., both Wellington firms, with whom he spent 20 years, thereafter starting on his own account as a dairy farmer at South Karori.
After his retirement from business, Mr Burn took an active part in municipal politics. He was elected a member of the Karori Borough Council in 1909 and remained on the council until 1915, when he was elected Mayor of Karori, in which capacity he took an active part in the negotiations leading to the amalgamation of that borough with the city in 1920. Having then been Mayor for five years, he was elected a member of the Wellington City Council and remained a member until he retired in 1931 for health reasons. He took a keen interest in city reserves and besides being chairman of the reserves committee, was a member of the bylaws, lighting, milk and outlying districts committees. For four years he was on the Hospital Board; he was also a member of the Wellington City and Suburban Highways Board. For three years he was a member of the Karori School Committee, acting as chairman for twelve months.
Keen on promoting sports, Mr Burn was for three years president of the Karori Bowling Club and was also president of the Karori Hockey, Ladies Hockey and Tennis Clubs, patron of the Karori ladies Croquet Club, vice-president of the Hockey Association and vice-president of the Karori Rugby Football Club.

His father Myer had been the chairman of directors and managing director since its incorporation in 1892. In Oct 1928 Mr Arthur Bower Knight (1884-1934), as Chairman of the WFCA, stated that "about twelve months ago, it was made apparent to the board that a crisis had been reached and steps were taken to effect an entire change in the management of the association's affairs". Joseph Caselberg then relinquished his position of chairman and managing director and his brothers, David & Alfred Caselberg, retired from the board ... more here on the meeting and outcome. Arthur concluded with .. "In conclusion the directors realise that the association, like several other organisations in New Zealand carrying on similar business, has passed through a crisis and that its interests have suffered severely thereby. The board is of opinion that the interests of the association will best be served by not delving into past mistakes, but by concentrating on future policy and operations. Drastic action has been taken to meet the position and the board looks forward now with confidence to the future. Loyal support of shareholders and firends will assist in quickly restoring the association to a dividend-paying basis"

In Loving Memory Of Joseph CASELBERG, Aug 23, 1944, of habits simple and ways upright, law of justice always in sight, he glorified the name of Jew and in the love of human kind he grew.

Mr Malone said that the late Mr Wilson was an estimable citizen and a versatile sportsman and in the early days of racing in the district owned, trained and rode horses. He was a man the club could ill-afford to lose, added Mr Malone in asking members to stand in silence as a mark of respect. Sympathy was expressed with the relatives

He married Ada Iris Baker in New Zealand on 2 March 1929
* Ada was born 1898 in England, emigrating in 1923 with her sister Catherine Baker
As far as I know Jim & Ada lived in Wellington and Masterton and very possibly Lower Hutt

* Jim died 10 Feb 1952 aged 51
He was cremated in Wellington, New Zealand, his ashes were taken away

Ada moved to Napier and lived there apparently until her death

* Ada died 27 Nov 1970 aged 72
She was cremated in Hastings, Hawkes Bay, her ashes taken away

* Does anyone have any information on this couple please?
* I cannot find birth info for either of them in NZ. Possible they emigrated here
* I don't think they had children but you may know more
* Someone? took their ashes away and maybe they are buried together somewhere or maybe the ashes were scattered. It is also possible Ada took Jim's ashes 'home' to England but she returned to NZ after 1955 as I visited her often in Napier and attended her funeral in 1970

Jim loved to paint. He painted this scene in the late 1940s, of an Island in Queen Elizabeth Park, Masterton, from the swing bridge (apparently)

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

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

They had 6 children. Arthur was a Sharebroker, Financial Agent, Valuator, Land, Estate and General Commission Agent at 44 Lambton Quay. Prior to that, in 1877, he was appointed the manager of the BNZ at Te Aro. He was also the Chairman and Managing Director of the New Zealand Times.

NOTE After the death of Clara's father ... Woodville Examiner, 18 Feb 1892 POST-MORTEM ORDERED. Special to the examiner, Masterton, This Day. An inquest is being held to-day before Mr Renall, Acting-Coroner, on William Lancaster Lucena, a large property owner, who died on Monday night and was to be buried this afternoon. Lucena was married a second time some years ago to his young governess (Ettie Anne Allard Maunder (1854-1950) in 1877). Three weeks ago he executed a fresh will in favor, it is believed, of his present wife. His death was very sudden, as he was knocking about the night before the occurrence and Dr Beard was only called in on Monday. The inquest is being held at the request of the members of Lucena’s family, by his first wife (Mary Clarke Vennell 1840-1876), who are dissatisfied owing to Mrs Lucena refusing to disclose the recent will till after the funeral. A post mortem examination of the body, by Drs Hosking and Bey has been ordered and solicitors have been engaged on both sides.

Evening Post, 11 Oct 1900
Of all the romances of real life the unusual experiences of a lady of Normanby (Taranaki) (recently published in a local paper) may be placed on record among the most remarkable. Twenty-one years of age and with the brightest prospects in life, Mrs G. A. Eagles has nevertheless found herself in a serious predicament. To the pressman who called at her home (Normanby-road, Normanby), she said with charming frankness:- "I am just 21, and was born in the Clutha district, having resided in Hawera and Normanby for 12 years. For years I did not enjoy good health. I became anaemic. My strength failed, mu face grew pale and I suffered from severe headaches and prostration. I lost my appetite and hardly dared perform domestic duties. I grew so ill that doctors were consulted and I took medicines for five months, only obtaining temporary relief. Then I commenced Dr Williams' pink pills. Two boxes improved me so greatly that I continued them and before long regained perfect health. I am now quite strong, have a good appetite, sleep well, and every trace of anaemia has vanished. My recovery is, I am sure, entirely due to Dr Williams' pink pills.
If we feed and enrich the blood, for which Dr Williams' pink pills are especially famed, we check anaemia (from which Mrs Eagles suffered) and ward off and cure indigestion, sluggish liver, debility, nervous ailments like St Vitus dance, neuralgia and paralysis. Dr Williams' pink pills also cure rheumatism, sciatica, bronchitis, chest and lung troubles, but they must be the genuine, bearing the full name in red and white wrapper. Sold by the Dr Williams' Medicine Co., Wellington, three shillings per box, six boxes sixteen and six, post free, and by chemists and storekeepers.
NOTE People in NZ back in the late 19th, early 20th century, were paid a small fee to make such adverts for Dr Williams. Whether they were afflicted as they said or were enterprising enough to make a few pounds is unknown. The ad for her continuing good health was still going in 1903

The surgeon who attended stated that the act probably saved him from bleeding to death

New Zealand Herald, 1 Nov 1937
of Mr H. E. READE. The death has occurred at New Plymouth of Mr Herbert E. Reade, at the age of 73. Born at Whangarei, he was the only son of the late Mr James Reade, of Auckland. Much of his early life was spent on his father's extensive run in the extreme north of the Dominion, from Awanui toward North Cape. His account of his experiences of station life of 60 years ago with the then Maori occupants of these lands was of great interest. At 16 years of age he was sent to jersey (Channel Islands) to complete his education. Returning to New Zealand he entered engineering works in Auckland. From there he came to New Plymouth and married. He entered the building trade and only recently retired from active work. He is survived by Mrs Reade and a sister, Mrs Wintle, of Parnell (his sister Florence (1879-1955) married Walter Wintle (1866-1969)

He later joined the 'Rippingham Grange' and was having a promising career in the mercantile marine when the accident happened. He and a shipmate, Harman, were fishing on the Gladstone wharf at 7.30 at night when they were knocked into the shark-infested water by a passing, empty meat truck, drawn by horses. Alex did not know how to swim. Harman was keeping him afloat while waiting for a lifebuoy, until someone shouted "Sharks" whereby Alex panicked, struggled free and was lost in the dark.

NOTE The William Davie brought 294 passengers. 36 married couples, 71 children, 116 single men & 22 single women for Bluff. A Report of Inquiry by Commissioners on the Ship "William Davie" ..
.. The immigrant vessel 'William Davie' arrived at Bluff harbour on the 12th instant, at 11.30a.m. From inquiry the Commissioners learned that the health of the immigrants during the voyage had been very good; that the provisions had been good and were served out in accordance with the dietary scale and to the entire satisfaction of the surgeon-superintendent' that the supply of water was ample, the distilling apparatus having worked well; that the conduct of the immigrants in each compartment had been very good and that the immigrants were all of the labouring class and, as a whole, very fairly adapted to meet the wants of the Colony. The few exceptions (the most notable being a case of cancer in the stomach, which rendered the sufferer not only unfit for employment, but a probable burden on the district for support) were the result, as we learn, of any chance of inspection on the part of the surgeon-superintendent being precluded, owing to the immigrants being put on board at dusk, just as the vessel was sailing.
From personal investigation, the Commissioners ascertained that the ship in all its compartments was thoroughly clean and remarkably free from disagreeable smells, carbolic powder being well used throughout the voyage.
That the compartments were arranged according to contract; as also the hospitals, of which there were three in number.
That a bath-room, with proper appliances, had been provided in the single women's compartment, in which were two closets, besides eight others on deck for the married and single men.
So far from there being any complaints, all the immigrants spoke in grateful terms of the kindness and attention they had received throughout the voyage from the captain, doctor and officers of the ship.
The total number of adults landed at the Bluff was 240, four adults electing to go on to Dunedin and Christchurch to join their friends, making in all 244 adults.
The surgeon-superintendent reports nine deaths during the voyage (all children) and four births. Two children died of bronchitis after the anchor was dropped.
The arrangement fixing the berths fore=and=aft in all the compartments, instead of athwart ships, is one which deserves special remark and commendation. Not only did all add greatly to the comfort of the immigrants while in their bunks, by modifying the motion of the ship, particularly in bad weather, but gave a larger space in the compartments to move about in during the day and enabled each mess to have, as it were, a small compartment of its own in which the meals were eaten, with a sliding table, which, when not required, could be lifted and fastened close to the roof of the cabin. The whole arrangements of the three compartments, it would, in our opinion, be advisable to adopt in all immigrant vessels.
