bullet  General Notes:

My great Grandfather, William, was 16 years older than Martha. Due to problems within the marriage they left Awaroa and moved to Nelson in 1899 where William opened a boat building business in the Port area and Martha a boarding house,Haven House, also down there. A William Knowles was one of her boarders and they formed a relationship. The boarding house was a financial disaster and I think she may have been declared bankrupt which was the reason for a move to Palmerston North with Knowles. Evidently they used to have terrible arguments and in a fit of rage she was shot with a revolver by Knowles in the street. Knowles is reputed to have been horrified by what he had done and held her in his arms whilst she lay dying expressing his undying love. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to death by hanging but this was later commuted to a life sentence. Her brother Fred travelled to Palmerston North and bought Flossie the daughter from the relationship back to the Nelson area where she grew up with his children.
