ARRIVAL of Pioneers.

The 71st Anniversary.

24 Known Survivors.

Today is the 71st anniversary of the arrival in Auckland of the Ship 'Ann' with about 70 passengers who formed the original out posting in Otahuhu district. The vessel left Carrickfergus near Belfast Ireland in October 1847 and after a lengthy passage of which 6 weeks were spent lying off the Cape, the anchor was dropped in Auckland Harbour on the 7th May 1848*.

The passengers who arrived by the 'ANN' were among the very early settlers in New Zealand and a number of them have passed away but at least 23 of the more youthful among are known to be alive in New Zealand.

These are:-

Miss L. GALLAGHER of Avondale
Mesdames BAKER nee Callaghen Otahuhu
BROWN nee McINTYRE Auckland
CALLAGHER nee McCRORY Canbell Dunedin
MATHIESON nee GILMORE (Ororke) Auckland
POTTER nee McGUIRE Te Awamutu
Mrs Joseph VERCOE nee McMANUS Tauranga
J COBINE Auckland
J FOX Ohaupo
P LENNAN Waiwera
A McANULTY Otahuhu
P McCRORY Tikitere
R Mc GONAGLE Otahuhu
P Martin HUNUA
J MURPHY Otahuhu

The ages of these survivors range from 72 to 89 years. Mrs PERRY another passenger who subsequently returned to England was known to be alive in Sommerset some months ago. The late Mrs HASLAM who died in Auckland last month was also a passenger by the 'Ann' and has been in New Zealand 70 years and 11 months.She was the sister of Mr J. FOX of Ohaupo.

It is not generally known that the Bridge over the salt water creek at Penrose Otahuhu Road, known as 'Ann's Bridge' was built by the male passengers of the 'Ann', hence its name.
