Barney Magee, having just ferried passengers and bicycles across the Karamea River
Barney Magee, aged 14, having just ferried 4 cyclists and 4 cycles, across the Karamea River in a boat. The passengers are: Mr Ernest Pettit and his wife, in the back seat is her sister, Mrs Walter Batty and her child. In the background, extreme right, is the house where the Magee family lived. In the centre background is the house of Bob Johnson. The small building on the right is the stable where horses were kept. The punt, which Barney Magee and his father used for heavier loads, is visible at the water level.

Photograph taken by Walter Batty circa 1920. Information from back of file print, courtesy of Alexander Turnbull Library .

The two women are sisters. Mrs Pettit was Ruby Scarlett, and Mrs Batty was Ivy Scarlett, both being younger sisters of my grandfather Albert Thomas Scarlett. The child will be Hazel Pettit, b. 17 Aug 1918. (Notes added by Roger Clist.)

Edward and Elizabeth Rossiter and family
Edward and Elizabeth Rossiter and family
Copies of this photo were found in the memorabilia of brothers Sidney Clist and John Clist, New Zealand, but none of the Clist descendants knew who the family was. In consultation with Ernie Wide (UK, a Rossiter connection) we have now identified each of the members of the family.

As the mother in this photo looks remarkably like my great-grandmother Mary Clist neé Quick, I had already guessed that she is Mary's older sister Elizabeth Rossiter neé Quick. The father is her husband Edward Rossiter. The eldest child is Margaret Mary b. 1882, next is Edward James (Ted) b. 1884, then John Thomas b. 1886 and Violet Elizabeth b. 1889. The youngest is Charles Rossiter b. 1891, dressed in a baby smock as was the custom in those days. Yet to come is Harry b. 1893.

Sadly, all children were orphaned just 5 years after this photo was taken, and were dispersed to uncles and aunts in the Quick family. Ted (13) and Charles (5) were reared by my great-grandparents George and Mary Clist, of Shoreditch, Taunton.

Frank, Mark, and George Clist
Frank, Mark, and George Clist
The handwriting is Leonard Clist's. He has identified My Father Frank on the left. At the top is My father's two brothers, Mark, and George Clist (right). From Mark's clothes and centrality, we deduce that this photo of the three brothers was taken on Mark's wedding day, 12 May 1897. Sadly, Mark died just over two years later.

This is the only known photograph of my great-great grandfather John Clist, Blacksmith of Shoreditch, Taunton, who passed away in 1891 aged 56 years. The red mark is damage on my copy of the photograph. Trevor Clist (Canada) has an undamaged copy of this photograph.

Vertical inscription says that Leonard's brother "Hubert took the photo." The top inscription "Possibly Leslie Clist" is wrong. This was my mother Bessie Clist's assumption.

This photo was found in Sidney Clist's photo album. Lydia was Sidney's eldest neice, who lived in Argentina and whom he never met. This scan was shown to Lydia just a few weeks before she passed away, and she recognised her photo instantly without reading Sidney's inscription.

Manfields of Shoreditch
Manfields of Shoreditch
Original 100 x 75 mm photograph lent by Elizabeth (Betty) Evans when we met in Shrewsbury on 15 October 2014. Seated are John and Elizabeth Manfield, Betty's great-grandparents. The top left corner has been ripped away, and there is a tear through the face of John Mansfield (standing, Betty's grandfather). Note that the surname spelling changed between these generations. Pause mouse on faces to identify names. Notes by Roger Clist, July 2015.

On board TSS Rotorua, of the New Zealand Line
On board TSS Rotorua, of the New Zealand Line
My grandfather Sidney Clist is at front left, and his brother John at back right. John has his hand on Charles Rossiter's shoulder. Charles was a cousin of Sidney and John, and from the age of 5 was reared in their home as their brother. I think that the young man at the back left is in Sidney's wedding group photo (Gisborne, 15 Apr 1913) but I do not know who he is. Nor do we know the person standing in the middle at the back. Departed Plymouth 29 Oct 1910 for Wellington via Capetown, Fremantle, Hobart, Sydney and Auckland. This photo was found among John Clist's memorabilia.

The TSS Rotorua at sea under full steam. Location unknown.

Among its 3rd-class passengers on its maiden voyage from London were three young men from Taunton, Somerset: Sidney Clist aged 24, his brother John Clist 18, and their cousin Charles Rossiter 19, departing Plymouth on 29 October 1910. They stopped at Capetown and Hobart en route, and arrived in Wellington on 11 December 1910. You can see them on deck in this photo.

The TSS Rotorua was sunk in the English Channel on 22 March 1917.
