New Zealand Herald 10 Nov 1884 p2
..obit Mrs Maurice KELLY of the Wade........arrived in the colony 1841 with first husband John FAIR....

Mrs Maurice KELLY was ...  Mary KELLY - died 30 October 1884 - aged 70 years.

It is unknown what became of John FAIR (death not yet found)  ... or whether in fact Mary was his legitimate wife ?

There is though sufficient info in accessible records to show that Mary KELLY (or FAIR) was the mother of children with the surnames FAIR and KELLY.

"Early Auckland Births" shows  >

8 October 1849 - KELLY - Patrick Thomas
F :   Morris - sawyer       M :   Mary nee FOGARTY

19 April 1855 - KELLY - David
F :  Maurice - sawyer of Okawitta ?     M :  Mary nee FOGARTY.
[The child David is buried with his mother at Auckland.   Other children John and Margaret FAIR also buried same.]

Do you have a copy of the 'Intention to Marry' document in respect of Elizabeth Jackson & Thomas Neagle? If not, you could request a look up.

Here is the information you can expect to find on the document; in particular, the age of the bride & groom to be.

Hi Chris Cameron,

I can have a look for this Intention to Marry Notice that Minniehaha referred to. Because it took place prior to 1880 it should be indexed.

Thomas Thornhill NEAGLE to Elizabeth Ann JACKSON, 1862, at Napier.

Possibly died before 1848...

"The late John FAIR..." mentioned in 1848, along with  Mary FAIR and Maurice KELLY

Scroll to bottom of the page

For some reason John and Mary FAIR (early settlers of Albany) were mentioned in an article on page 34 of the Central Leader, May 26 1981. Held at Auckland Library.

I've finally got a copy of the Intention to Marry, which doesn't shed much more light on things.  It confirms her age at the time of her marriage, which is different to what was declared at her death, and tells us the occupations her and Thomas.  It also gives us the streets they lived in at the time of their marriage.

Interestingly, in PapersPast, I have also found an inbound shipping passenger list, for 1874, showing that Mrs Neagle and family (5) arrived from Wairoa.  i didn't find a matching outbound passenger list.  At the same time (1870s), Thomas was on the electoral role because he owned two sections in Clive.  I've also found reference to the Neagle children in the school prize giving articles in the local newspapers of the time.

Wairoa had a sawmill and a whaling station in the 1800s.  Family "legend" has it that Annie's father was a sailor in the whaling industry, but there are also references to a Jackson involved with the sawmill.

Annie's death record describes her father as "Jackson (sailor)" and through other information we always believed he died in 1860, so why was she returning, with her children, from Wairoa in 1874?

EDIT .........., so why was she returning, with her children, from Wairoa in 1874?

Hello.

Don't forget in the period you are researching, the way to travel was via the coast. Most early settlers of Poverty Bay and Hawkes Bay did business in Auckland, more so than Wellington. While local press may record "in bound" from the vessel's previous port visited, those in bound may have joined the vessel at Auckland [etc] on it's scheduled trip south.

Would you be kind enough to post here, the details as given in the Intention to Marry Notice, please ?
