Bessie Scarlett's Anthology Book (1931)
Bessie Scarlett's Anthology Book (1931)
by Roger Clist
My mother's school book containing 24 pages of handwritten classical poems. I judge that she would be aged 12 and attending Standard 6 (now Year 8) which was then the most advanced class at Maungawhau School, Wairiki Rd, Mt Eden. Us children also attended this school but by then Standards 5 and 6 had become Forms 1 and 2 at Balmoral Intermediate School in Brixton Rd. I love the neatness of her printing and the way she coped with correcting mistakes in plain view. The quaint advertisements on the covers would be sponsorships to reduce stationery costs. I remember my mother's delight in reading them to us, especially "Cargoes" (p4) and "Drake's Drum" (p10) both of which have attractive rhythm and emphasis.

Howard Clare's Notes
Howard Clare's Notes
by Howard Samuel Clare
An undated 7-page family history of Howard's grandparents Samuel Clare and wife Eliza Osborne, which formed the basis of Henry Clare's Dossier (also on this site). Howard did not appear to have contact with any of the Osborne relatives in New Zealand, so his notes on Osborne family history have several errors in dates, and in particular, the spelling of Eliza's mother's maiden surname is wrong (it is Piggot, not Pagott). Typewritten, and composed before internet access was available for searching censuses, etc.

Voyage of the Adamant, 1874
Voyage of the Adamant, 1874
by Edwin White
Rough transcript of a journal written during the Adamant's voyage from Plymouth to Nelson, New Zealand, May 1874 (awaiting OCR transcription). My great-grandfather James George Scarlett was a boy of 12 on this ship, emigrating with his siblings and parents Daniel and Harriet Scarlett. Sadly, their youngest daughter aged 1 died of bronchitis on the voyage and was consigned to the Deep. The Scarlett family was one of the founding pioneer settlors of Karamea, in the remote north-west of the South Island. It was a life of hardship. (Notes by Roger Clist, Sep 2011)
