New Zealand / Re: Electoral Roll query late 1930's-mid 40's
« on: Monday 14 January 19 21:17 GMT (UK)  »

THANKS Lu, skip reading and stiff hand, my error. Did not mention name, but presumed now dead.

Thankyou Alan ... I just really wanted to clarify though, for the researcher here, that the prosecution > (yes, the man's name is recorded in the article), > had nothing whatsoever to do with Mr JAKICH.  ;)

If you are interested in researching the history thereof, there are a number of interesting clips.

Apparently the probable [assuming only one fish shop / restaurant] owner of 1938 was prosecuted for running a large bookmaking/betting business from the back room. Not long after an advert appeared for the lease of the restaurant.

.... are you able to provide the article regarding this prosecution ?   Did it actually occur in 1938 ?

I mention it because there was a prosecution > very similar to the one you have described > which occurred in late 1936.

Hi again Gaye

You might also like to try an email enquiry to Otorohanga District Council ... who may be able to help with an actual address for Len and Mary JAKICH for the timeframe you require.  ;)

[There is a link on that site also to the local library who could possibly have additional info. ]

Hi Gaye

No street number given on electoral rolls, but they are in Otorohanga from 1938 (a year after their marriage).

1938 - Waikato - Waitomo Electoral roll

JAKICH - Ljubomir - Maniapoto Street - restaurant proprietor / Mary -- married

1946 - same roll

JAKICH - Ljubomir - restaurant prop. and Mary - married - at Te Kanawa Street, Otorohanga

1949 - same roll and address

also 1949 - on Auckland - Otahuhu Supplementary No. 2 roll (suggesting that they had just moved to that locality).
She is now listed as "Marija" -- Ljubomir JAKICH, storekeeper] ... both residing at  1 Beach Road, Eastern Beach :

Hi Rod

Here is the link to our PapersPast website (in case you are not familiar with it).

https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers

I searched using "susannah phillips"  ... and also filtered results to return articles which appeared in the "otago" area newspapers.  [See "Title: "  all titles, all regions, box ]

Hello Rod

Just adding further information for "a Susannah PHILLIPS" (Dunedin, Otago area) who appears to be the same person who died in 1917 and is buried at Anderson's Bay.

The newspapers of the day are peppered with reports of this woman appearing in the local courts charged with vagrancy, insufficient means of support etc. etc.  and date from about January 1867.
There are too many articles to record here, but you may like to read through them at your leisure.

Examples :
https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/ESD18770926.2.10
City Police Court - September 1877 - Vagrancy - Susannah PHILLIPS aged about 45 years [bc 1832]

https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/OW18740110.2.27.2
1874 - Susannah PHILLIPS - witness in murder trial - she is living with a man named John READY ...

https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/ESD18690823.2.10
1869 - Susannah PHILLIPS  ... mentions that her "husband who migrated to the West Coast ... she heard he had been drowned ... "  [Note:  am assuming she means the West Coast - South Island, NZ ? ]

New Zealand Completed Requests / Re: looking for this street in Wellington

ooh ... glad that you think so too, WNW.   ;)

Have now been able to look at street views of 67 Nairn, from 2008 / 2009 / 2015.
My guess that the original wrap-around verandah had been partially filled in to create a room, is now satisfied with a much clearer side view of the house.   Likewise, a shot of the right-hand front of the house with a little less of the tree obscuring it, shows a window which looks identical to the one in 1890's picture.

Nairn Street actually was not very far away if the family lived at lower Aro Strret (Wordsworth St) near the Willis St. junction.   And if they'd resided at number 48 then they may well have also lived at number 67 ?   I suspect they were renters rather than home owners ?
Have looked at the Wellington City Council Archives records, but they don't tell much - except that # 67 dates from the mid-1890's.

Amazing coincidence that you flatted right next door !   ;)
I know Nairn St. because my mama also flatted there when she arrived in Wellington.   A more distinct memory of the street for me though, was being taken there by my driving instructor to practice the dreaded "hill starts" (manual car).  Nightmare-ish stuff !   ::)

That's great KHP ... many thanks.   :)   Gives me a bit more to work on.

Yep, that house ... glad you agree.  ;D    Shame the tree (at right) is in the way ... but the roof line also fits with the older house. 

Best wishes for the New Year, KHP. 
Regards,

Gosh ... I stumbled upon this house when searching Nairn Street.  ???

Sure ... it is numbered # 67 ... but I couldn't help thinking that it bore a real resemblance to the house of the mid-1890's in the photograph.    Does anyone agree ?    ;D

Considering the passage of time and the alterations it may have had, it sure looks like a "contender" to me.   ;D

Enlarge the image of the roof of the house at left-hand side and look at that chimney stack.   

*   The chimney pots seem to be identical.    ???
*   Has the left side of the verandah maybe been filled in to create another room.  There is a vertical board placed not far from where a join might have been created.

*   Original verandah posts probably replaced when the lattice-work trim was added ?

*   Fence replaced with pickets ... but very similar line (and street gradient) to the older photo ?

I'm off to explore further.
