Otago Settlement Jubilee Number 

Otago Witness Thursday  March 17, 1898 Pages 57 - 126
The Founding of the Otago Settlement
Its History and Development.

Go to the NZ National Library Papers Past site (opens in another window), newspaper images online. 
Also Otago Witness, 31 March 1898, Page 11

Below I made a list of the contents. The page numbers are the image page numbers, not the newspaper page numbers and the names represent photographs on the page. *Passenger lists (John Wickliffe, Philip Laing, Blundell and Ajax) can be found on pages 70, 73, 74.  On page 104 there is additional names and corrections for the passenger lists. (Another site with passenger lists, lists only those who disembarked at Dunedin, often the ship sailed for the northern ports, with other passengers). This Jubilee issue is jammed packed with the history of the Otago Province, photographs of citizens and buildings, and brief snippets of the early settlers.  Remember these biographies are full of error and when they were compiled for the 50th celebrations many of the dates and shipping details were reported incorrectly at the time.

Example: page 101
    Orbell, MacLeod C., came out in Mariner, the family taking land at Hawkesbury Bush. There were only a few hundred sheep between Dunedin and the Waitakiai that time, and they had to clear land to grow wheat and vegetables for their own use, depending upon wild pigs and native birds for their supply of meat. Took up runs comprising about 60,000 acres: and Mr M.C. Orbell has been a runholder ever since. M.P.C. 1866, and a member of Vogel's Government. Lived 42 years in Waikouaiti district; now resides in Geraldine.
    Orbell, F.E., born in Essex 1831, came out in Mariner 1849; after serving as a cadet in the North Island, took the management of a sheep and cattle station. Stock Inspector many years. Photo of Henry Orbell page 91.

   CUDDY, Thomas, born 1821, came to colony in Philip Laing. After the usual vicissitudes, settled at Saddle Hill in 1857, dying there in 1871. Member of Road Board. Family 11, two sons, five daughters living.

Old identity
We proudly name the blue shirt days
The axe and tent and bullock drays,
The rain and hail, the mire and slush,
The thirst for gold in Gabriel's rush,
Of Old Identity.

We speak of camp in virgin block
Of food in rough and scanty stock,
of welcome always preferred kind
With willing hand and cheerful mind
By Old Identity.

Our harvest fields in golden grain
were cleared of bush in gale and rain,
And to his children still
Betoken toil and iron will
Of Old Identity.

Our busy streets, our buildings fair,
Bespeak a hard-won battle there
And nobly gained; each well-known name
Will honoured be in blue shirt fame
Of Old Identity

The daring maids and stalwart men
Who rose and fell and rose again
Are with us now; 'tis fitting time
To honour them for 'auld lang syne"
with hand and heart and whishes kind-
Greet old Old Identity Fifty Years.

Half-Way Bush Settlers
My mate and I had a home-made sledge and bullocks. Purchased goods at Mercer's. We get a bag or half a bag of flour on his back, the other a Maori basketful, strapped with flaxes across his shoulder, and thus burdened make a start - a kolladie (the flower-stalk of the flax) carried by each, as a balancing staff. The hill is steep, and tall hard ferns make rough walking. We make Shank's nags do the business. By the time we get to Tam Howie's creek we are ready to rest. Constitution Hill (Sunnyside) being descended, we come to a slough of despond at the bottom. No bridge. How will we "warstle" through it - with some mud-wadding and splashing, and reach our isolated dwelling.
"Black Bill" a kindly and adventurous negro who lived all alone nearby who varied the monotony of his life by starting every now and again on a solitary pig-hunting expedition. He would bring a sow cut up and strapped across his shoulders and the litter alive in a bag to become the progenitors of a race that in direct line may be living on till now.

1855 - Mr W.H.

The great attraction was cheap land. The new coming speedily found employment - married couples with rations 45 to 70 pounds. Single men 50 to 69. Shepherd 45 to 60. The "Thomas and Henry" was at that time also taken up by the Provincial Government for the conveyance of passengers. ...

They'll blame us richt sair for this ravelled wark,
But we'll play the auld tunes when we get a new key,
When our Daddie comes back, we'll see what we'll see.........

He'll set us a'richt, he can do it sae neat,
He'll smash a' the schemes o' the renegade pack
And we'll get to richt when Daddie comes back.

The laudable ambition of the settlers generally was to become possessed of a piece of land.

Old Identiana by Old Otago
My first acquaintance with Captain Cargill was when he was the manager of the Yorkshire District Bank in York. We went into the Castle yard to hear Victoria proclaimed Queen of England. Next time I saw Captain Cargill was in 1854 at Port Chalmers. Port Chalmers was just a few scattered houses. There was a public house (the Thistle), and a Custom House. I think Mr Miller and Mr Logie were in the Custom House then. We went to old Mr Taylor's old house in the evening, as they had a piano, there, and made a night of it. Captain Cargill introduced me to Mr Cutten, the proprietor and editor of the Otago Witness. We dined at Mr Smith's Royal Hotel. In walked great burly Captain Driver, the pilot. That man ought to be alive now, for he had a frame of iron. Mr Carnagie (the jolly wooden legged man). Old Mr Shepherd (the policeman, had a house at Molyneux.)

Reminiscences of Otago
Mrs George Smith, the landlady of the Royal, had a white cockatoo. Mr Grant, a scholar, who use to write beautiful effusions for Mr Cutten sometimes, was going past the Royal one day (I think Mr James Smith, of Tokomaririro, will remember) when the bird  addresses an observation to him. Mr Grant wore black cloth and a white cocker, but a belltopper and spectacles). One of Mr Shepherd's prisoners was there having ventured out of durance in the glare. The incarcerated Tar said "That be blowed for a yarn,: "the animal is a cock-a-too!" That night Mr Grant told a ghost story. It appears he was once on a ship that was haunted. Whether she sailed on a Friday, carried a parson, or a black cat, been followed by a shark, or a Mother Carey's chicken, matters not. Anyway all on board who had common sense became aware she was doomed. So one dark night near the Cape, when they were beating to windward with the starboard tacks aboard, what should they see cross their bows but a large vessel, gliding along with all sail set, and they knew she must be the Flying Dutchman by her rig and build. Then the men were paralysed, the ship missed the stays and fell off. No one went below. Then an awful voice sang out, "I say, mate, it's mortal cold up here to-night." That sail was reefed mighty quick, and you may be sure no one lingered behind. There was rush for the deck. "Ho, ho! ha, ha!" yelled the fiend louder and louder, as the ship flew through the foaming sea, till daybreak revealed the terrible sight of a white cockatoo in the rigging. The ship in the night was a homeward bound vessel and the "fiend" was a stray cockatoo, which had been transhipped in the dark, as the vessels passed each other.

The late Mrs James Brown
On the 30th ult. another of the old identities passed away. Mrs James Brown, Greenlaw, East Taieri, was a passenger of the good ship Bernecia (1848). She was the eldest daughter of John Watt, laird of Muirhead, Stuarton, Ayrshire, and was born on the 17th May 1795. Before her marriage she resided with her Uncle, Dr Watt, Glasgow. She married James Brown, one of the heroes who returned from the Battle of Waterloo. They had 10 children, five of whom survived to reach Otago. They applied to Dr Alcon, Edinburgh, and he told them of Mr Valpy's scheme of engaging young men and women to work for six months for him, getting their passage free in return. They sold their property and sailed for New Zealand, where they found wages for men were 2s 6d a day, and for girls 15 per year, and provide their own sugar and tea. After several years they bought 50 acres on the Taieri Plain. Mr Brown died in 1879, aged 73. She leaves three sons and a daughter, 14 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren.
