Otago Witness, 30 June 1898, Page 30
At 6.15 a.m. on Tuesday, June 28, John Albert Fenton passed away at his residence, Montpeilier, after a comparatively short illness, with some suffering. He was born on February 16, 1821, and educated at the Grammar School, Sheffield, and C.C College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. 1843, M.A. 1846. He was by the Bishop of Lichfield ordained deacon in 1844 and priest in 1845, and licensed to the curacy of Norton, Derby, which he retained till he came to New Zealand in 1851. In that year he came to Lyttelton as chaplain of the Bangalore, a Canterbury Association ship. He set foot in Port Chalmers on January 1, 1852, having been appointed by Bishop Selwyn the first and the only licensed clergyman of the Church of England in Otago. He remained in charge of the church in Dunedin till 1859, when he accepted the easier cure of Waikouaiti and Goodwood. On the constitution of the Rural Deanery of Otago and Southland, in 1859, he was appointed rural dean thereof and commissary of the Bishop of Christchurch. As a result of his administrative ability a clergy was established, which in spite of increased clergy continued to pay 'to each' a' minimum stipend of �300. Against his judgment 'the present system was' introduced, and, as a result, decreased stipends. This is but one of the many illustratious of his sound judgment; rare insight, and administrative ability. In 1863 he returned to England as commissary of the Bishop of Christchurch and agent of the Rural Deanery Board, and it is certain that had communications passed through him much of the subsequent trouble if the early days of this would have been avoided. He settled in England (save for 18 months spent on the Continent) till 1881, when he returned to New Zealand, being afterwards appointed archdeacon of Oamaru. In 1896 he resigned his archdeaconry at the same synod as his old friend Archdeacon Edwards resigned. To the last day of his life he retained full possession of a very clear intellect, which made him a capital teacher. Gifted with, poetic instinct, many of his hymns have found a permanent place in hymnals. Careful in details, he even detailed directions as to his funeral, requesting the vicar of St. Matthew's to officiate alone and in a certain manner, further directing an early private funeral, with but one white floral cross. Simple in his tastes, he desired simplicity in burial. As a scholar, a faithful friend, a wise counsellor, a man gifted with historical insight; and judgment, a prudent administrator, he had few equals. Whatever he advised has stood the test of time. Of a charitable disposition, many a kindness he did to those in need. One of his last acts on his dying bed was to cancel ; debentures on St. Paul's Church, to give towards St. Matthew's debt reduction, to its poor fund, and to start a fund for a new trumpet stop, which it is proposed shall now be erected in his memory. St. Paul's vicarage owes its existence to his goodness, whilst the wisdom of his choice of the site of St. Paul's is manifest. His was the suggestion to plant the grove of trees in the Victoria Park on Jubilee Day.

There passed away at her home on Friday night last (says the Timaru Post of the 22nd inst.) another of the early band of settlers in Mrs Goostree, who arrived in the colony with her husband and family by the ship Bangalore in May 1851. After farming in the Riccarton and Ohoka districts the family shifted to the Hunter, Makikihi, about 30 years ago, taking up 300 acres of land, which now forms part of the Bourndale Estate. Some who complain of hard times now would be interested to have heard the old lady talk of the early days ; how they paid �5 for the first sack of flour that was brought to them over the Port Hills to their home at Riccarton, and, naturally, her husband, then a labouring man, only earning 3s a day (the current wages at that time), had a great struggle to bring up a family. For the first wheat they grew, she with her husband dug the land on moonlight nights, and sowed the wheat, but as they knew nothing about dressing the wheat before sowing, the crop turned out all smutty. Her husband used to thrash a bit of wheat out with a flail after coming home from work, and she used to wash the smut out of it, dry it over the fire, grind into flour by hand, and bake it into bread. Mrs Goostree retired from farming a few years ago, building a comfortable home in the Upper Hook. She leaves four married daughters, and four sons to mourn their loss.

Mr and Mrs Charles Young, of Camaide, near Kaiapoi, a day or two ago, celebrated their golden wedding with an ingleaide gathering, including relations, with their grand children and a number of friends, at their farm. Mr and Mrs Young were married at Ballater, on the Dee side, near Balmoral. They left Aberdeenshire for New Zealand in 1851. In August of that year they arrived at Lyttelton by the ship Bangalore. Although the head of the house has reached his seventy-seventh year, he still maintains a hearty constitution, and his good wife bears her years with a degree of activity which would excite the envy of many a younger dame.
