MACLEAN On February 2, 1888, at Bleak House, Howick, Mr Robert Maclean, aged 75 years.
MACLEAN Amongst our obituary columns will be found intimation of the death of Mr Robert Maclean, of Bleak House, Howick. Deceased belonged to a well-known family, being a brother of Mr Benjamin Maclean, who for many years was provincial auditor, and of Mr Every Maclean, of Fern Court, Cambridge. Mr Robert Maclean was a farmer, and never took any active part in public affairs. He was 75 years of age. The funeral took place on Sunday at Howick, and was attended by nearly the whole of the inhabitants, men, women, and children, and large numbers on horseback and in vehicles from surrounding districts, also a large number of old settlers from Auckland. It is estimated that there were over 500 people present - the largest funeral yet held in Howick. The church was far to small to accommodate the friends. The coffin was carried by hand, and many had the melancholy gratification of bearing their friend from his late home to the cemetery. The Rev A. Samuel Fox conducted the funeral service. Suitable hymns were sung, and at the grave the 264th hymn (Ancient and Modern) was feelingly sung by all present. The chief mourners were his brother, Mr Every Maclean; his son in law, Mr Bailey, C.B., and his three sons, (the grandsons of the deceased); Messrs John and Geoffrey Maclean, his nephews. The general remarks amongst the crowd were that Howick had lost a good man, a friend to the aged, sick, and needy, and, a large employer of labour.
MACLEAN On May 23, 1891, at Bleak House, at Howick, of heart disease, Mary Evans Maclean, relict of the late Robert Maclean. Deeply regretted.
MACLEAN Mr Every Maclean, whose death occurred recently at his residence, Bleak House, near Auckland, was a fine sample of the pioneers who have helped materially to make this country what it is. Mr Maclean came to this colony some fifty years ago. On landing Mr Maclean and his brother Robert had one great advantage over many who came to New Zealand to follow farming pursuits. They had a thorough knowledge of stock-breeding and agricultural work generally. It had been bred in them in their native county of Devon, where their progenitors had been noted stock-breeders for many years. The two brothers secured land in the East Tamaki District, and imported the first pedigree stock from the Old Country. Their fine Shorthorns and Herefords, as well as Leicester, Southdown, and Shropshire sheep took many prizes at the Agricultural shows in the Auckland province, and did much to make the stock in the district what they are. Mr Maclean naturally always took an interest in Agricultural Shows, and was himself a most energetic worker in the cause. He did good work in the foundation and management of the Auckland Agricultural Society. And with his brother he assisted materially in the establishment of the New Zealand Stud and Pedigree Stock Company, and in the development of the waikato as a farming district. But it was not only as a stock-breeder that Mr Maclean served his country, he was at one time in the provincial Council and during the unsettled period of the Maori War his energetic temperament and admirable horsemanship fitted him for the position he held as an efficient captain of a troop of volunteer cavalry.

Through his industry and shrewdness he acquired a competence, and after disposing of his estate at Epsom some years ago, made afresh home at Mount Roskill, where he has lived ever since. he leaves a grown family to mourn his loss.

MACDONALD ** June 14, 1937, at a private hospital, Auckland, Norman Hursthouse, late of Western Samoa, aged 73 years.
McDONALD Mr Bernard McDonald, better known as Barney McDonald, who passed away at the residence of his son in law, Mr Thomas Garnaut, Gibraltar Crescent, Parnell, at an early hour on the 2nd October, was at one time a very prominent figure amongst Auckland's old identities, and his career in the colony has been a varied and remarkable one. At the time of his death he was 84 years of age, perhaps more. On the 22nd of April, 1845, Mr McDonald arrived in New Zealand with the 58th Regiment, and was present at all the engagements with the natives at the Bay of Islands. He went to Sydney towards the end of 1846, but returned to New Zealand the following year, when, having severed his connection with the Regiment, he became wood contractor for the military forces, and had built for him two vessels, which bore a conspicuous part in the early coastal trade of this port - the Lady Wynyard and the Three Sisters. He subsequently entered business as a general contractor, and prospered well, becoming a considerable shareholder in the Bank of New Zealand. But he entered largely into mining ventures on the Thames Goldfields, and, like many others, he lost all his capital as well as the property which he had acquired, and disheartened by his losses in his advancing years, his health broke down, and he had to give up all business pursuits. Since then he had lived with his son in law and his daughter, Mrs Garnaut. His wife died in their house at an advanced age 14 months ago, and since that time the old man's health rapidly broke up. He had, however, only been confined to his bed for a short time. Mr McDonald leaves three daughters - Mrs Garnaut, Mrs McShane, and Mrs Heath, 18 grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. The funeral took place from the residence of his son in law, Mr T. Garnaut, Gibraltar Crescent, Parnell, on October 3, and there was a considerable attendance of old residents. The coffin, surmounted by floral wreaths, was taken into St John the Baptist's Church, where the first part of the burial service was given by the Rev Father Lenihan, who briefly referred to the deceased. The cortege then moved off to the Symonds Street Cemetery, the Very Rev Monsignor Macdonald attending as one of the chief mourners, and the final service was read over the grave by one of the Benedictine fathers.

MURPHY The funeral of the late Mr C. G. Murphy, of Inglewood, East Tamaki, took place on Sunday last, and was attended by a large concourse of personal friends and country settlers - many of whom had travelled long distances to pay the last tribute of respect to the memory of one of the most highly esteemed and energetic farmers of the East Tamaki district. A short and affecting service, conducted by Mr Hogg, was held in the house, with the sorrowing relatives and friends of the deceased. The funeral cortege left Inglewood at one o'clock, the carriages, buggies, and horsemen extending fully half a mile along the road, and on arriving at the Otara Presbyterian Cemetery the solemn burial service was conducted in an impressive manner by the Rev J. Mackay. Mr Murphy was born in the North of Ireland, and resided for many years at Portsdown, but the news of the discovery of gold in Victoria led him to leave his native land and seek his fortune in that rising colony, where he resided for some years. Like many other Victorians, he was attracted by the tempting reports of the rich goldfields of Otago, and spent some time in the Lake district, whence he travelled through Canterbury to the then new discoveries on the west coast of the South Island, where he engaged in business, and by his genial disposition and integrity of character, won the respect of all sections of the community. Having amassed a competency, Mr Murphy decided in 1867 to visit Auckland, and after some time purchased the farm where he has spent so many happy years. Some ten or eleven years ago, at the earnest request of the Whakatane Cattle Company, Mr Purphy left his farm and removed to Whakatane, where he took the active management of their estate for about five years, but failing health led him to return to his farm at the East Tamaki, where he continued to reside until his death, which took place last Friday night, after a very short illness, at the comparatively early age of fifty eight years. He leaves a widow and five sorrowing children to mourn his sudden departure. Mr Murphy was a member of the Church of England, but his large-hearted sympathy was not confined to one church, it was felt and acknowledged by members of other churches in the district where he resided, in fact, until the erection of the Episcopal Church at Flat Bush, he was one of the most regular worshippers at the Wesleyan Church in the district. A kind husband, a loving father, a real neighbour, and a faithful friend, there are few who have stood as high in the regard and esteem of their fellow settlers during the last twenty years as the late Mr Conway Grey Murphy.
