The GRIGSON family, of Raydon, went to South Canterbury on the barque "Ambrosine" leaving London on 25 Oct 1859, meeting with tremendous gales in the Channel and sailing finally from Ushant on 9 Nov taking 29 days to the equator and arriving at Timaru on 15th Feb 1860. At the time of embarkation William gave his occupation as farm labourer and the Provincial Government gave £2 toward the £15 fare per adult. 13 year old Ann was described as a domestic servant, probably to get the free passage. On arrival at Timary the family transferred to dry ground by surf boat and were conveyed to Waimate by bullock dray owned by Saul SHRIVES where they settled at the back of Point Bush, near the Maori Pa

Timaru and Waimate are situated on Caroline Bay, on the east coast of South Island, New Zealand.. Originally a temporary Maori camp site, a whaling station was established there in 1835 but only lasted about three years. Soon after this the early New Zealand government divided the area of South Canterbury into sections which were available for purchase, setting aside specified locations for future development of townships.

The Rhodes family had already settled in the Banks peninsular and were successfully clearing land and raising sheep, and they bought the piece of land called "The Levels" which lay just north of the designated township area of Timaru.
George RHODES who now owned the land with his brother Robert built a simple cottage there and grew a crop of potatoes as well as establishing a sheep run (a "run" in New Zealand is an area of land for stock). He needed not only supplies for living but a way of getting his produce sold, and he arranged for a small ship to pick up his bales of wool and to bring supplies from the Banks peninsular.

Unfortunately there was no harbour at Timaru - only a beach with a low clay cliff behind it. Geology came to the rescue. A nearby extinct volcano, Mt Horrible, had erupted a large field of lava which solidified into a blueish dolerite and part of which formed a reef just offshore from George Rhodes’ home, and gave a small area of sheltered water which he developed as a landing place for the open rowing boat he used for transferring goods and to and from the ship.

In 1856 the population of Timaru was 16 - and George needed workers for his run. A commission set up by the government was approached, and it advertised in Britain the need for artisans to live in "the township of Timaru" , extolling its virtues but admitting that the population was low.

At the time the population of Britain was growing, but the Enclosure Acts were making agricultural work hard to get, as well as being poorly paid. In the little village of Raydon, the Double and Scarf families, together with Henry Butcher, a cousin, seized the opportunity to emigrate as assisted emigrants subsidised by the New Zealand commission. The following year the Grigson family went out to settle - whether because they could not go together or because they had good reports back from the emigrants is not known. Where people could not afford the assisted fare, they could promise to pay when they had earned money in New Zealand.

Coincidently, another emigrant on the Strathallan, Richard CHAMPION, who travelled as a single man, subsequently married Ann GRIGSON, who travelled on the barque "Ambrosine" with her parents. There is a street in Waimate named after them in 1889 - Grigson Street.

A book about the early settlers at Timaru has recently been published. It is called "Timaru at Last" by Alan McKenzie, and may be obtained from Timaru Museum for $40 plus $10 postage in New Zealand - if you order from the UK send a cheque for the equivalent in pounds sterling to $NZ40 plus $NZ25 postage ($NZ65 in total)

19 Ann BUTCHER m William GRIGSON (bap 19 Aug 1821 Raydon bur 18 Aug 1867 Timaru Cemetery aged 43) 13 Oct 1844 Raydon

Note: William was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth GRIGSON In 1841 the census records William with his parents in Raydon. In 1851 the family was in Raydon and William was a carter In 1860 William and Ann Grigson owned a section in Waimate parallel to High Street from Queen Street, to Butcher's Lane and in 1862 he was listed on the electoral roll in Waimate, New Zealand. William, a carter, was killed in August 1867 when he fell off a dray under a wheel which passed over his head (see the inquest record here

The Timaru Herald of 19 Jun 1867 records that William made a late rate payment of 15/- out of court

It is of some interest that there is a street - Grigson Street - named after the family in Waimate in 1899. It is a section parallel to High Street from Queen Street to `Butcher's Lane

Ann's house and garden in the north west corner of the Queen Street intersection was always a cheery sight - especially to those travelling by bullock cart in the early days of the settlement. In the '70s the peaches were a temptation, not always resisted to George Manchester's boys.

The Timaru Herald records on 31 August 1878, "Mrs Grigson and others were fined 5/- for allowing cattle to trespass on the main road"

Ann was in posession of land which some long time after her death was transferred to her daughters on 14 Dec 1877 You can see her will here

There was dispute over some other of her land:

Fatal Accident at Waimate.
George Edward Champion
A fatal accident by fire occurred at Waimate on Friday last, to a child of about four years of age, the son of Mr Richard Champion, a farmer residing at Waimate.
The child, during a short absence of his mother, is supposed to have been playing with the fire in one of the rooms in the house, and finding his clothes in flames rushed screaming out into the street.
Every attention was immediately paid to him by the neighbours and all remedies obtainable were applied to alleviate his sufferings - but his injuries were too severe, and the poor little fellow died the same afternoon on his way to Timaru, whither his parents were taking him for medical treatment.
He was buried in the cemetery at Waimate on Monday.

The marriage lasted for almost ten years when the couple were divorced on the grounds of Susannah's adultery with Thomas BOWDEN from whom Susannah's husband claimed £500 in damages. In May 1875 Thomas BRUCE was found dead on the road between Otaio and Pareora. A post mortem showed that he had suffered a rupture of "the main blood vessels" His obituary in the Timaru Herald reads "12 May 1875 - Mr Thomas Bruce - The remains of the late Mr Thomas Bruce who so suddenly died near the Pareora on Friday were removed to Otaio Inn to Mr G R Freeman's of Waimate on Monday last, previous to internment. The same day the body was interred in the Waimate Cemetery. Deceased left three young children to mourn his loss."
