Nurse CUPPLES, parentage........
« on: Thursday 01 March 18 03:29 GMT (UK) »
Nurse Cupples operated maternity hospitals (to which I have a personal connection!) in Dunedin, details of these can be found at the following website -

https://sites.google.com/site/nzmaternityhomes/home/otago

Her death:

1937/29187   Cupples   Mary Matilda   61Y

Her obituary:

https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/ODT19370731.2.101?end_date=31-12-1937&page=3&phrase=2&query=nurse+cupples&start_date=01-01-1937

Said to have been born at Orepuki (which is in Southland), I have not found a birth registration for her.

Could she be connected to the Cupples family being discussed in this topic?

Probate must have been resealed in Australia because here is the link to the probate granted in New Zealand.......

Yes, it was where two generations, my father and I, started life. When I visited Dunedin about 5 years ago, imagine my surprise when I opened the Saturday newspaper to find a full page spread about 'El Nido', as it was on the market. It had certainly stood the test of time.  ;D

Found this earlier > Probate file for Frederick Herman WILSON, late of Orepuki, Hotelkeeper.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZC-PB9B?i=821&cc=1865481

The name of Matilda Mary CUPPLES, Nurse of Dunedin, appears in the section relating to the Administration Bond.

The relationship between Matilda Mary (May) CUPPLES and the WILSON family is clarified somewhat in her Probate record.

Frederick Herman WILSON had married Catherine FORBES in 1892.
He was born at Riverton - and Catherine at Orepuki.
----

The headstone at Orepuki Cemetery for Catherine WILSON - died 1926 (w/o Frederick Herman), as well as naming them both, also carries the following names.

CUPPLES - Robert  /  Matilda  / Hamilton

WILSON - John /  Elizabeth  /  Frank /  Caroline / John W.
HERRICKS - Charles J.

A note on the cemetery record says >   "(All named on three sides of the stone)".
