New Zealand Completed Requests / Re: Buchanan homestead in Palmerston North
« on: Monday 04 February 13 23:48 GMT (UK)  »
Wonderfull !!!!!    :)

Yes I would be happy to have photo of the building (scanned photo or other mean) . I have only one photocopy of the building from a press article at the time of the demolition. And also an old photograph of a croquet or cricket match with Carncot Pupils with a part of the building in the background. I have also a description made long ago by an old girl of the school.
Are you in Palmerston North area ?

Gerry,

Thanks so much .. that is them. Your finding is breaking in my brickwall ...

On 1841 Census, Philip Jones ( the 3rd great grandfather of my husband and also the son of the youngest Philip Jones buried there) was living with his Grand Parents Philip Watkins from Penrose and G mother Ann Watkins) 

You are speaking about about a mistake in the burial year .. for which couple ?

What are the other Jones and Watkins graves ????


Thanks so much .. a very exciting finding for me (and other Rootschatter searching the same family)

:-)

Thanks Sandy  :)

No grade for 1910-11 .. I guess she didn't have her certification yet !!? (cf post above re - 1914 exam)

How come there is no information for the school in between ??? (there is some in other official sources ???) because it was not Southland ???

Greenvale it's Otago no ???

What are the comments for Eastern Bush ???


Thanks a lot anyway :-)

Thanks so much :-)

Yes I have a decent library nearby .. (close at that time of the day of course  ;) )
What means class D ??? the lower class ?

Furthermore what means the number on the grading list 95, 88 etc...

March 11 1914 NZ Gazette
Examination centre Invercargill Passed Class D
(There are four classes A, B, C, D

Register details in NZ Gazettes:
June 29 1917 Certificate D, Consecutive number on grading list 95, Public School
June 21 1918 Certificate D, Consecutive number on grading list 94, Public School
April 22 1919 Certificate D, Consecutive number on grading list 88, Public School

Do you have  a big library nearby, you can search NZ Gazettes and look at the register each year
The Treasury in Thames has a fairly full set, ??Auckland library does and other main centres
So that you can fill the gaps..maybe later years give more info
