22 Battalion by Jim H. Henderson - Chapter 12 Adriatic

Over on the right 2 Company moved up parallel with the railway line as fast as it could, leaving mopping up until daybreak. Minor tussles took place with Turcomen holding fortified houses. The beach area was heavily fortified against assault from the sea: three or four heavy naval guns in camouflaged concrete emplacements disguised as ice-cream stalls faced out to sea, and land round about was mined thickly. In one of these minefields 10 Platoon foundered. Mines abruptly exploded in quick succession at chest height, a horrible sensation. Lewis. was killed; Roy Lorrigan, Jim Hill, Knuckey and Braybrook were among those wounded.
The party of wounded men, stricken in the minefield and taking refuge in the casa, was not left in peace. At dawn the men on the top floor repulsed an attack from the beach, and even succeeded in collecting some prisoners. In the house Hill and another were in a bad way, but the hot drinks made from the issue of cocoa, milk powder, and sugar which each man carried seemed to save Hill's life. Later in the morning the wounded were taken away.
One of the wounded died unexpectedly in hospital some days afterwards. His wound was not severe, but he developed pneumonia through lying wounded most of the night in soaked clothing. The battalion was still in summer clothing and battle dress would not arrive for a fortnight yet.
The body of the dead man, Lewis, had remained in the minefield. After dawn two of his pals, Gillon and Athol Jimmieson. gallantly determined to bring back their comrade's body, returned to the minefield. They met with disaster. Another mine exploded, killing Gillon, and Jimmieson later died of wounds.

3810 The Tory under Captain Edmund Mein Chaffers sailed from Plymouth on 12 May 1839 carrying a total muster of 35 souls, the sailing in defiance of official antagonism, changed the whole face of our history, and set upon the shores of Port Nicholson the present capital city of the Dominion. The "Tory," a newly built, excellently found and fast sailing barque of 382 tons, eight guns, built by Somes Bros., London and Newcastle-on-Tyne, although purchased and sent out by the New Zealand Company, was not, strictly speaking, an emigrant vessel. The vessel made for those times a very quick passage of ninety-six days, sighting no land on the way save a distant glimpse of the Canaries. Captain Chaffers notes with pride in his log: "She passed everything she saw."

She carried but a small list of passengers, officials rather than emigrants, who were to prepare the way for the emigrants to follow. they were Cabin Passengers; Colonel Wakefield: E.J. Wakefield; Dr Ernest Dieffenbach, Naturalist; Charles Heaphy, Company Surgeon; John Dorset, Company Surgeon; Nayti, a New Zealander; Richard Lowry, Chief Mate; George F. Robinson, Ships Surgeon. And as Steerage Passengers; Robert Doddrey, Company Storekeeper; Colonel Wakefields Servant; Thomas William Tankersley, Second Mate; The Third Mate; The Cabin Boys; The Petty Officers; The Foremast Hands inc, a New Zealander'and a native of Marquesas islands.

2. From the 'New Zealander' 22 Jan 1851 - The Alpha, reported as having sailed from the Downs on the 18th July is now out 170 days, and fears are entertained for her safety the vessel not having been seen or heard of by any of the late arrivals. - lb.Dec 24.

As Thomas was married in Victoria Australia it is likely that the Cutter Alpha was the vessel he immigrated on.

Te Tau, Taiawhio Tikawenga 1860 - 1939
Ngai Tumapuhiarangi; farmer, horse breeder, religious leader, local politician

Taiawhio Tikawenga Te Tau was a leader of the major Maori political and religious movements in Wairarapa in the 15 years following 1910. He was the younger son of Kaipaoe, a high-ranking woman of Ngati Rakairangi, and her husband, Tikawenga Te Tau, a leading chief of Ngai Tumapuhiarangi. In 1860 Tikawenga initiated a major peace expedition to the trouble spots of Taranaki, Waikato and Hawke's Bay. Taiawhio was born at Turanganui (near Pirinoa) in the same year, on 16 February, and was named for the expedition.

Taiawhio and his elder brother Puhara appear to have been raised at Papawai, where Taiawhio attended school. He also received an extensive education in the traditions and genealogies of his hapu, and in later life he was a member of the Tane-nui-a-rangi committee, which was charged with recording Wairarapa whakapapa and history.

The Chamberlains were leasing land at Daventry from Sir Chas Knightly in 1841 he told them that he wanted their land fro cropping. After a lot of pressure they agreed to a price for one crop, the land to revert to them after the crop was harvested. He planted a crop of acorns.
They had effectively lost their land and so had to leave so came to New Zealand. Sussannah and Thomas came to New Zealand in the ship 'London' arriving on 2 May 1842 with three children; their youngest Edwin had died on the way out and was buried at sea.

He soon took up and cleared bush-clad land in Parkvale, the Parkvale Road area of Karori. They moved on after about three years to a dairy farm in the subdivided part of Northland area, then part of Karori. In 1855 the family moved again this time to the Wairarapa. source Karori Streets Karori Historical Society.


Thomas died on 5 January 1859, aged 52, of a heart attack, just a year after moving his family to Masterton. Sussannah died many years later on 1 January 1891 age 82.

They were Mr Thomas KEMPSTON his son Thomas, Mr Ben Stevens, Mr & Mrs Moles and the Rev Bruff and they tramped their weary way from the Patarutahi. Mr Kempton built a shack on the present main street line and was later joined by his wife and family. Mr Stevens settled on the west of the main street and Mr & Mrs Moles settled on ?Skull Clearing? between the present Post Office site and the northern boundry. Tracks were cut through the bush and the settlement established.'

'The remaining two members of the party were father and son Thomas Kempton senior and junior. The Kempton's settled vigoursley to a variety of pursuits while acquiring and farming land upon which their descendants still live today.
A butcher shop, Store, Carrying business. Sawmill, interest and the 'Raising Sun' hotel are some of those known. Upon the arrival of the party according to family tradition Thomas senior is said to have said to his son ?Well Tom I think this is the place. Why don?t you take the shovel and turn the first sod. In 1856 he secured a further place in History when he drove a specially constructed narrow bullock wagon containing a ton of goods from Wellington to Greytown to open the Rimutaka Hill road to wheeled traffic on Tuesday June 10. In public life Thomas senior became chairman of the Greytown Town board in 1876 and first mayor upon proclamation of the borough in 1878. Thomas Junior sat on the first borough council.'

3845 Thomas William Tankersley born in Wellington on 1 November 1843 son of Thomas William and Sarah (nee Draper) Tankersley, and was baptised on 16 June 1844 at St Paul's Pro-Cathedral Church. Thomas removed to Masterton with his parents in 1857.
His early years at Upland Farm, and Woodlands equipped. him well to handle stock and do the many jobs which typify farm life. These he did on his block No.54 of 63 acres on the Kiriwhakapapa Road near to Forest Home, and also on sections 98 to 100, plus another 50 acres - a total of over 170 acres situated on the north side of Upper Plain Road, just over one mile from Ngaumutawa Road.
At the age of 21 years on 2nd November 1865, he married Fanny Louisa Renall who was 17 years of age. The Rev. Dan Desbois officiated at the residence of Mr Jas. Robieson of Taratahi. From their home in Upper Plain Road, Thomas would travel to his Kiriwhakapapa Block, or go droving for other settlers.
About six months after their marriage, on a day when Thomas was away, Fanny was doing the washing in the yard, when a flame from the firebox of the copper ignited her clothing. Apparently the barking of the dogs was heard by neighbours, but failed to arouse any suspicion of trouble. Fanny crawled to the house, and although she apparently survived for a short time, she died on 13th May 1866 from inflammation and fever resulting from the burns sustained. Three trees planted in a triangle to mark the location of her grave, remain to this day on what was one of TWT's properties in Upper Plain Road on the southern side.
On 10th May 1871 - five years after Fanny's death - Thomas married Ellen Jones, born in Wales in 1850, at the residence of Rev. John Moir, Woolcombe Street Wellington. There were no children from this marriage. Ellen is reported to have been paralysed for five years prior to her death from heart failure.
Thomas lived out the latter years as a widower at the home of his sister Mary Campbell, Mt Bruce, where he died of old age on 20th April 1920, being 76 years of age.
