Alice Ellen Barnard - Page 4
Alice Eileen Barnard died 6th Mar 1917 aged 61 years at 10 Hutcheson Street, Addington, Christchurch and on the 8th she was buried at the cemetery there.
She supported her husband for 38 years. It could not have been an easy marriage. There is no record of William Barnard's death in New Zealand, and it is not known where he went. Alice left New Plymouth after selling all their possessions in 1906 and she returned alone to Canterbury. In the 1908 election she stated she was a widow and lived at 44 Madras Street. Christchurch North. In 1914 she moved to live with her brother at Hucheson St.
The Edgington family sailed from London on the Cathcart. On board, her mother Rebecca, aged 50 born Gloustershire (all her children were born there except William) Alice 18 years, Servant; Caroline 16; Ellen 11; George 23, Carpenter; David 20, Engine Driver; William 14.
An eventful voyage - there was a mutiny. Four of the crew of the Cathcart during the voyage had broken into the fore-hold, broached cargo and secured drink; one of them was brought aft and placed in irons; another, having attempted to rescue him, was also taken in charge, but while being secured the first prisoner escaped to the forecastle. Captain Crawford and the officers going forward to recapture him, were prevented from doing so by several of the crew, who made use of threatening language. The Captain, finding that the mutineers would not listen to reason, returned to his cabin, and after deliberating with his officers, armed himself and went forward the second time. Finding the doors of the forecastle closed, he demanded admission. Prior to this, part of the crew had left the mutineers. Those inside refused to open the doors, threatened the Captain, and said that they meant shortly to be masters of the ship. Argument was useless, and the door on the starboard side of the forecastle was, in spite of much resistance, partly forced open with hand spikes, and the Captain, again warning the mutineers, fired and three were wounded. An entrance was effected and the mutiny quelled, the ringleaders and others being placed in irons. On the arrival of the ship at Lyttelton 29th August 1874 the men were brought before a magistrate and charged with revolt. Four were sentenced to twelve weeks' imprisonment with hard labour, and two to one month additional for assaulting the Captain. Aside from that, it was a good voyage. She sailed from London with 481 Government immigrants
