3805 Wallace Family in N.Z.
1842-1972
Archibald Wallace born in Scotland Sept. 29, 1802 in Scotland, married Janet Muir , born in 1804. Archibald and Janet Wallace left Greenock, Scotland on 10th June 1842 with 5 children. The ship "The Duchess of Argyle" captained by R.G.Tait, was the first ship to bring immigrants to N.Z. On board were 90 men, 90 women, and 117 children. The ship arrived at Auckland on October 9, 1842 after losing some time on a sand bank. The weather was bad, with high seas and much rain, so it was not until the next day that the passengers were put ashore at Mechanics Bay, and had to find the best way they could through the mud, to where 20 to 30 raupo huts were provided for their reception.
The male immigrants were given work at up grading Shortland St. The pay for married men was 2/6d per day and 1/6d for single men.

The following notice is copied from the "Weekly News" of Feb. 6, 1886:-

Another old identity in the person of Mr. Archibald Wallace has gone to rest. Mr. Wallace came here in 1842 in "The Duchess of Argyle" with his wife and family. Mr. John Wallace of Bothwell Park, Waiuku and Mr. James Wallace of "Hillside" Papatoetoe, being the best known members of the family, though there were four daughters and three sons. All the members are still alive. Mrs. Wallace died 13 years ago, but the list of sons and daughters who came to the colony with their parents in 1842 remains unbroken.
Soon after arrival here, Mr. Wallace went into partnership with Mr. Wilson, father of Wilson Bros. of Mahurangi lime fame. They began work at Epsom as agriculture implement makers, on a piece of land which now forms part of the property of Mr. Paton. The partnership did not long exist and afterwards Mr. Wallace, upon the advice of Bishop Selwyn, removed to Otahuhu in 1847 as the Tamaki District was then the most progressive in an agricultural point of view.
None of his boys seemed inclined to follow their fathers trade, but took to farming on their own account and Mr. Wallace then induced Mr. Wallace of Otahuhu to come to the Colony and the trade now carried on by Messrs Wallace and Hotham is the trade first started by Messrs Wallace and Wilson in the early days of the Colony. Mr. Wallace then followed the example of his boys and took up farming, but for a number of years past, the old gentleman has lived upon his sons estate at "Hillside", Papatoetoe.

(Source of the following is unknown)
Archibald Wallace
He was when a young lad, a schoolfellow of Dr. Livingstone, the well known African traveller. The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon at the Otara Cemetery and the funeral service was conducted by the Revs.J. Macky and Steel. The number who have such a long colonial experience as the late Mr. Wallace is getting very circumscribed and in the course of a few years , those who took part in laying the foundations of the colony will be very few indeed. There are said to be only 9 male survivors of the passengers who arrived by "The Duchess of Argyle".
Mr. Wallace was an enterprising settler, who was respected by all who knew him.

3818 We extract the following from the "Wellington Advertiser" of the 18th inst. :- "The last remains of Fanny, the late wife of Mr. T. Tankersley, jun.,were consigned to their last resting place, to-day (Monday), attended by relatives , friends, and neighbors. A, short but impressive service "was read by Mr Crayne, the Registrar, at Mr Tankersley's request, and few among the mournful group but dropt a tear, as the circumstances attending her death were most melancholy. Being at home alone and performing some office with her back to the fire, her dress, extended by crinoline, projected over the fire, and was instantly in a blaze. Affrighted at seeing herself on fire she fainted and fell upon her face; whilst in this state of insensibility her clothes burnt entirely from head to foot. One may judge the intensity of the fire when a string of apples suspended to the rafters was burnt. When the poor creature came to herself, although suffering the most dreadful agony she had the presence of mind to scribble a few lines, although most unintelligible, and tied them round the dog's neck; but being unable to unbuckle the collar she loosed the chain, rolled it round his neck, and drove him away to find his master, who hadproceeded to the residence of his father, about a mile from Masterton, and four from the station. Mr Tankersley sen., seeing the dog with something round his neck, called him. Although not much accustomed to notice tbe dog, he felt rather surprised to see him so fussy. He took off the paper and put it in his pocket. His son coming in soon after Mr Tankersley mentioned the circumstances to him, and took out the paper, and together hey managed to make out the sad account of the catastrophe. Mr Tankersley, jun., rode as fast as possible, followed by his father, who went provided with oil, &c. ; but, finding her case was hopeless, he made arrangements to remove her upon a stretcher to his own residence, where Mrs Tankersley and several kind friends rendered all the aid in their power to alleviate the pain of the poor sufferer. Thus happened the lamented death of this unfortunate young woman, at the age of eighteen, and only five months married. Drs Sprat and Smith were sent for, and promptly attended, and rendered all the assistance human aid could give; but the poor victim's constitution not being strong, she gradually sunk until yesterday (Sunday) the twelfth day after the accident, when she died. The sorrowing parents in a sincere and kindly manner expressed their gratitude to those ladies who had so sympathisingly rendered them assistance."

Tim attended Wairarapa District High School until he was 16 when due to the death of his father he had to take over running "Glenside," the family farm. This was in 1923.
He was married in 1935 to Winifred Audrey Reynolds.
Tim had an extensive workshop, and many a time people round the district had called on him for help when they had mechanical problems.
Tim was involved in the construction of the Maraekakaho School baths, the Mangatahi School tennis courts, and extensions and renovations to the Maraekakaho Hall and various other local amenities.
Tim was an advisory member of the Young Farmers club and organised ploughing and shearing competitions.

3847 William and Betsy spent the early years at Karori, he as a labourer, possibly still with Mr Harrison, who had property there. It is not recorded whether he followed the advice of a letter in the New Zealand Gazette of 1 December 1843: 'Furze Seeds. This is the season for taking. There are few more important plants to cultivate in New Zealand. Once established it needs no further care.' The eventual covering of Tinakori Hill bears witness to someone having followed the instructions!

By 1845 William had moved up to Three Rivers, Hutt. Their location was subsequently given as Waiwhetu River and his occupation as a farmer. Relations between Europeans and Maoris there were normally good, but on Sunday 1 May 1846 William's and 13 neighbouring families were attacked and stripped of all their belongings, although not hurt physically. These attacks and those in the Hutt Valley caused great concern, even more when Andrew Gillespie was murdered, followed by the carnage at Boulcott's Farm. When the situation was under control, William's loss, estimated at 9 15s, was reimbursed to the extent of 5 8s 8d by private contributions, it was brought up to 6 6s 2d by the government. They stuck it out for a number of years and prospered, but sometime after 1863 they emigrated to Australia and lost touch with the New Zealand branch of the family.

3850 William and Sarah's marriage was a joining of two long term St Breward families, and perhaps shows a level of acceptance of William's situation...........
Sarah's maternal grandparents and William's paternal Great Grandparents had both been married in St Breward.
For a time they continued the tradition, their first three children were all baptised in St Breward. However William was a Christian Bible Preacher and they started to move around. Sarah their fourth child was born in Saltash which is across Bodkin Moor from St Breward and just a few miles from St Dominic where Sarah's father Thomas was baptised. As to the birthplace of their 5th child Jane we have no idea presumably somewhere in Cornwall or at least the South West of England. Sarah continued the family tradition. Sarah was married in Callington in 1834 and by 1839 when they applied to come to New Zealand was living in St Dominic.
