  • Notes 


    • Richard was born in 1866 at Upper Waiwera. He was baptised on 19 November 1865 at his parents' residence of parents - his brother James was baptised the same day.
      Richard was known as a settler in earlier days, and later as a farmer, at the property on Weranui Rd known as "Glenholme" - the origin of the name is unknown. This property was first leased by Richard and his brother James in 1893 and 1894, and in 1909 Mildred took over James' share of the lease. Richard and Mildred purchased the farm in 1918.
      Emma Pheney was a school teacher at Upper Waiwera and also at Puhoi, that is how they (Richard and Emma) met. Richard and Emma were married in the schoolhouse at Upper Waiwera by the Rev. John Wesley Griffin on 31 March 1888. Richard's marriage entry gives his profession as settler and both his present and usual residence as Upper Waiwera. On his daughter Frances' marriage entry in 1911 his occupation was given as a farmer.
      Richard and Emma brought up their 4 children on the farm just up the road from the school.
      When their son Rex took over the farm, Richard and Emma retired to Panmure, but later shifted to Balmoral Rd in Auckland. Richard died in 1945, and Emma in 1947. They are both buried at St Matthias cemetery at Panmure, alongside Emma's sister Frances Pheney. The grave inscription reads: "Richard HOWELL d. 13 Feb 1945 a. 80 years, his wife Emma Mildred d. 22 June 1947 in her 89th year".
