1920 12 Aug: Maude vanished. Evening Post, MISSING AGAIN Mrs. Maud Barnard, of Hall-street, Newtown, who recently wandered away from her home and was subsequently found in an exhausted condition in the scrub at Mornington, is reported to be missing again. Mrs. Barnard, accompanied by her husband, went into a drapery establishment in Lambton-quay on Monday afternoon, and the husband agreed to wait while some purchases were made in a ladies' department. After waiting half-an-hour Mr. Barnard made inquiries and found that his wife had disappeared. He immediately had fuller inquiries made, and when no trace of the woman was found made a, search of the Mornington Estate, whither Mrs. Barnard had previously wandered. The police, who were not notified till yesterday, are assisting in the search, together with private parties. The missing woman is 35 years of age, 5ft 5in in height, medium build, and at the time of her disappearance was wearing it blanket coat (no pockets), black hat, with black velvet band around it, black shoes, and grey gloves.

1925 NZ Truth 26 Sept: When Eustace Barnard married Maude Elizabeth Barnard a good many -years back, the union resulted in a family of four. But one day in Wellington when Maude went shopping in Kirkcaldie and Stains, Ltd., hubby waited out on the footpath with the four offspring around him. Mrs. Barnard then, as far as Eustace and the kiddies were concerned, vanished, and that was back in 1920. Eustace made application for divorce in Christchurch this week, and he added that police and friends had searched Wellington and other places for the missing spouse. Even England had been got in touch with, as it was thought that Maude might have gone to visit her people. The petitioner for divorce could suggest no reason why his wife should disappear into a drapery store and not come out again to him. William Gillis, a parson, told how he had tried to help without success. A decree nisi was granted

Adventist Archives: BARNARD. After a short illness, Eustace Barnard, like a tired child, fell asleep at the Auckland Hospital, N.Z., on May 8, 1946. Brother Barnard accepted the truth about twenty years ago through studies by Pastor W. Gillis. For some time he worked in the S.H.P. factory at .Christchurch, and a little over a year ago moved to Auckland. Our brother leaves a devoted wife, Sister Barnard of Papatoetoe, and her only son Arthur to mourn the loss of a loving husband and father. There are two sons and two daughters by a former marriage: Len, who worked in New Guinea under ANGAU and is known to many readers of the "Record"; Dora (Mrs. Mclvor), of Petone, Bessie, and Eustace. Services were conducted by Pastor Uttley and the writer. A better day is dawning when we shall meet never to part again. R.J.Burns.
