Gertrude Elsie DUNNING (born 1913)

Died 25 Sep 1915 aged 2.

Mr AKED

Do not know who this person is. Maybe a photographer as he brought Mary Anne Clarkes portrait to CS Clarke.

1899

Alfred

We are not sure of Alfred's origins. Clarke puts a fair amount of trust in him and he was working for Clarke for wages. (See also references to him in February 1865). Possibly he was a fellow passenger on the Queen of Beauty. If so, then there are three possible names, Alfred Curtis, Alfred Nicholson and Alfred Carter. All of them were in Steerage. He left Little Omaha in September 1865 for the Hokitika Gold Fields.

Aunt Ann

Known to Clarke as Aunt Ann. Lives in England. Other people write to Clarke on her behalf. Cannot find a true Aunt of Clarkes called Ann. (Sometimes spelt without an ‘e’). Aunt Anne lives in Leicester, England, but I cannot find a relation of Clarkes with the name ‘Anne’. She seems to be elderly. The ‘Aunt’ may be an affectionate title, not a true relation. A letter from Aunt Ann was written by Miss Cooper. (August 3 1865). Another one was written by Mrs Turlington (December 15 1865)

An inquest was held on April 27 (1892) on Mrs. Eliza Britton, wife of a special settler at Omaha, who died somewhat suddenly, by Mr. Angove, coroner. It appears that on the morning of April 26 she took pains in her head, and later in the day pains in her stomach, and died in the evening unobserved by the attendant. The jury, after hearing the evidence, returned a verdict of Death from natural causes." It appears that deceased had complained of her heart, and was an excessively stout woman, weighing over 15 stone.
