FAMILY HISTORY

Passage to New Zealand was arranged through the 'Poor Scheme' in the East Chinnock Parish, Somerset for brothers Charles and Luke Harris (1811-1878), their families to assist them to emigrate. Their sister, Elizabeth and her husband William Pike, were also assisted  under the 'Poor Scheme'. A meeting was held on 17th June 1841 to consider the propriety of assisting several poor persons to enalble them to emigrate. It is recorded that a sum of nineteen pounds & three shillings & sixpence was paid for William Pike and his family to allow them to go to New Zealand. Other related families (through marriage) to benifit from this scheme were the Trask, Bicknell, Bartlett and Foot families. These families emigrated to New Zealand in 1841 on the 'Clifton'.

(e) Elizabeth Harris (1808-    ) married to William Pike was burried in the Old Bolton Street Cemetery. Elizabeth must have been in allot of pain in her finals days as her headstone reads:

 

"In memory of late Elizabeth Pike

Who departed this life 1868 aged 60 years

Her toils are past her work is done

And she is fully blest She fought the fight

The victory won and enetered into rest

This heart is no longer the seat of trouble

And torturing pain  It ceases to flutter and

bleat it shall never flutter again"

 

     (e) Luke Harris (1811-1878) died after falling from the roof of the Empire Hotel (?) in Masterton. The Hotel was owned by the Greening Family.
