Henry Glanville died in April 1859 at Stanmore Bay, NZ.

Other information

     Henry Glanville immigrated in 1837 to NZ
; on vessel City of Edinburgh. He and Mary Jane Plunkett Spillane immigrated in 1856 to NZ.
In 1856, Henry Glanville, his wife Mary and their three small children left Shoalhaven, New South Wales and headed for New Zealand. Henry was suffering from a heart condition and they hoped that New Zealand's cooler climate would be better for him. He paid 40 pounds for a Crown Grant of 94 acres at the western end of what is now known as Stanmore Bay. For a time it was known as Glanville's Bay.
At first all went well, though Henry found ploughing up land full of bracken and fern very hard work with only a six-year-old son to help him. Mary wrote to a friend in Australia in 1858 that they were growing corn and potatoes, though the crop was "very poor". For food they had a garden with vegetables and melons and there were wild pigeons and ducks. Henry had made a fishing net 20 yards long to catch the shoals of small fish which swam near the shore. Mary wrote that she was happy with her "snug little house near the sea with four rooms down and two up".
Sadly, in April 1859, Henry died and was buried on the farm. Mary erected a headstone carved out of local rock. She then leased the property to Richard Marsh, returned to Australia, married again and had another five children.
In 1878, Henry and Mary's son (also called Henry) returned to New Zealand, sold the family property and settled in Wainui, where he married Louisa Hellyer. Many years later his mother Mary came to New Zealand to see her grandchildren and visit her late husband's grave. By that time the grave had disappeared, the headstone had been broken and was being used as a doorstep. The then owners of the original Glanville property buried it in the sandhills so that Mary should not see its sad condition. They never found it again.
In December 1978, Mr and Mrs Hull of Stanmore Bay came across the broken headstone on the beach after a storm. They presented it to the Historical Society who exhibited it in the Silverdale Pioneer Village, where it is still on display. As far as I know, Henry's grave, somewhere out there in Stanmore Bay, is still lost.

Mr John Glanville JP
One of the earliest pioneers of Shoalhaven, and, at the time of his death one of the oldest residents, was John Glanville, who came to NSW when 25 years of age, and settled at Wogamia, Shoalhaven River, where most of his days were spent, and where several of his sons now reside. He was a Cornishman by birth, the fifth son of Richard Glanville of Colomb Major, Cornwall, and was in his 85th year when he passed away, September 23rd 1900 at Nowra, leaving a widow and grown up family of five sons and four daughters. he was one of the earliest appointed Justices of the Peace, and for a long period sat regularly on the Nowra bench, in which position he was, perhaps, one of the most impartial and fearless of men. The esteem in which he was held as an upright magistrate and useful citizen was amply shown by official references to him at the first sitting of the Court after his demise. As an agriculturist, John Glanville achieved considerable success, and from out of his abundance he contributed largely towards charitable objects and his church. He was of that class of sturdy, persevering pioneers, to whom.... in pride of their manhood strong, the hardest work was never too hard, Nor the longest day too long.

Birth, Marriage and Death information

     Mary Stevens was born on 29 February 1824 at Roche, CON, ENG; a minor at marriage. She was the daughter of Richard Stevens. Mary Stevens married John Glanville J.P., son of Richard Glanville and Lucy Veale, on 10 January 1843 at St Columb, CON, ENG; also St Mawgan - presumably where his banns were read. Registered St Columb. His father named Richard Glanvill. Mary Stevens died on 29 November 1903 at Nowra, NSW, AUS, at age 79; cause of death: Oedema of Lungs, ossification of heart valves, senile decay. Dr HK King last seen 29 Nov 1903
Shoalhaven Telegraph 9 Dec 1903:
The death of Mrs John Glanville, sen. (briefly reported in last issue), deserves more than passing notice, seeing that the deceased lady could rightly be classed as one of the pioneers of the district, and had played a, worthy part in its early settlement and development. She came to Shoalhaven just on 60 years ago, and during that long period had resided in the district— first at Wogamia and latterly in Nowra— and, dying in a ripe old age, leaves behind her a name honored and revered by all who knew her, and a family, comfortably settled, who have every reason to call her blessed.
The late Mrs Glanville was born on the 29th February, 1824, in the parish of Roche, in Cornwall, England, her maiden name being Mary Stevens. When in her 19th vear, on the 10th January, 1843, she married the late Mr John Glanville, in the parish church of St. Columb. and left her, parents’ home on her wedding day for Australia, her young husband having previously decided to come to New South Wales, induced thereto by representations made to him by an elder brother, who had visited the colony and had received grants of land at Bamarang and Wogamia. The young couple came out in the ship Euphrates, amongst their fellow passengers being the late Mr G. H. Plunkett, Attorney- General, his family, and the Cowper family, who afterwards figured prominently in the history of the colony. These two families showed great kindness to the youthful' bride, who had left home and kindred to assist her husband to carve out a career in a new land, and the friendship then formed lasted through life, though the parties were widely separated and had few opportunities of meeting each other. Mrs Glanville, whenever she visited Sydney, always had a cordial welcome from her distinguished ship mates. They arrived in Sydney on the 10th August, 1844, and Mr and Mrs Glanville came straight to Shoalhaven, making their home at Bamarang for the first twelve months, and then settling at Wogamia, with which estate the, family has ever since been associated.
The Shoalhaven of those days was altogether different, to what it is now. Free settlers were very few in number, there were no roads, and none of the conveniences now enjoyed. The only house in the vicinity of Nowra at that time was Mr James Graham's; Greenhills, where the young immigrants first called, and where they were met by the late Mr Richard Glanville, who accompanied them to their new home. This was nothing but the old-time bark hut, very primitive in character, but it was “home.” On the day Mrs Glanville’s first baby was born a terrific storm carried the roof off the hut, and mother and babe were exposed to the fury of the elements until repairs were effected. The experiences she passed through in her early colonial days were anything but pleasant to one who had been gently nurtured, but like most of the stout-hearted pioneers who faced the dangers, privations, and hardships of the bush, she resolutely, bravely, and uncomplainingly met all discomforts and surmounted all difficulties proving a true and loving helpmeet to her husband. Early in their married life, in 1850, Mr Glanville had a fine store residence erected at Wogamia, the finest building of its kind, then in the district, and which now stands as a monument to his enterprise. The timber for the house was brought from Berry (then Broughton Creek, where the Messrs Berry carried on a sawmill); while the lime was hand burnt in a kiln on the beach near the River heads. So well and faithfully was the work in the house done that, though it has now stood for 53 years, there has never been, a break in the ceilings. In the great flood of 1860, the swollen waters of the River, bursting the banks in many places, covering miles of low-lying country, and spreading desolation far and wide, came over the three steps forming the entrance to Wogamia House and into the hall. Many of the small farmers then on the estate and neighboring properties who were flooded out, came there for shelter, and were hospitably provided for during that trying period, as also at the time of the 1870 flood. Both Mr. and Mrs Glanville were large-hearted and generous. The deceased was especially kind to the poor, and never was a case of distress brought under her notice in vain. She also took a deep interest in the aborigines, of whom in the early days there were a great many. As showing how the blacks loved her and her household for their many kindnesses extended to them, it needs only to be mentioned that when on one of their periodical trips inland, they heard of a death having occurred in her family, they immediately returned to Wogamia and conducted an aborigines’ “lament,”— an imposing ceremony only indulged in as a mark of special regard.
Communication with the outside world was very unreliable in those early days. Qn one occasion Mr Glanville went to Sydney on business, the round trip occupying a month. On another occasion, when Mrs Glanville accompanied her husband in the city, they were ten days at sea on the up journey, stress of weather being responsible for the long trip. This is in striking contrast with the present day experience, when one can leave by rail in the morning, have five or six hours in the metropolis to transact business, and return the same eveing. When she wished to attend religious services, which were few and far between in her young days (but more appreciated by the people then than now, perhaps because of their rarity) she rode through the bush to the “cleared” ground (Numba), where visiting clergymen from Wollongong preached the Word of God under the willow trees (there being no churches at that time). Wheat was also conveyed on horseback or punted down the River to be ground into flour at Berry's mill at the “cleared ground.” Supplies were obtained at the same place, on the arrival of the small traders with goods. The Glanvilles took an active part, in endeavouring to establish better shipping facilities between Shoalhaven and Sydney, one of them (Mr Richard) owning, several vessels. Mr John Glanville invested £500 in a shipping company, but the venture proved unsuccessful, and he and the other shareholders lost their capital.
But despite the difficulties and drawbacks of the old days, times were good, prices of wheat and maize were high, and like others of the early, settlers, the family prospered, as they deserved, to such an extent that in 1876 they felt justified in retiring from active farm pursuits, and made their home in Nowra, where, till three years ago, they enjoyed the evening of life together in well-earned repose. After 57 years of married life, Mrs Glanville, towards the end of 1900, saw her husband “fall on sleep.” Since then she had been in anything but robust health herself, the infirmities of advancing age undermining an otherwise vigorous constitution. The heat wave of a fortnight ago tried her greatly, and on Sunday, November 29th, she calmly and peacefully passed away, having reached the venerable age of 80 years, less three months.
Deceased was a devout and consistent member of the Church of England, of which she and her late husband were generous supporters. On the day before her death she received the Sacrament of Holy Communion, most of the members of her family being then present. She died in full possession of all her faculties, in perfect trust and Christian faith. She leaves behind her a family of nine surviving children— Messrs Richard (Bamarang), John, James, Henry (Wogamia), and Sam (Berry) and Mrs J. J. Emery (Barrellan), Mrs Willie Glanville (Sydney), Mrs Drummond (Parramatta), and Miss Glanville (Nowra, who had been in constant attendance on her mother); — besides many grandchildren, and a large circle of relatives and friends.
The funeral took place on Tuesday last. The first part of the service was held in All Saints' Church, Nowra, where a considerable number of relatives arid friends assembled. At the conclusion, and before the body was removed from the sacred edifice, the “Dead March in Saul” was played. The cortege then moved on to Woprrigee cemetery, where the interment took place, Rev. W. Newby Fraser conducting the last sad rites. On Sunday morning reference was made, to the deceased lady from the pulpit. The preacher's text was taken, from Isaiah 55— a chapter which had been a great help and comfort to the old lady a few days before her death. The rev. gentleman referred to the great interest the late Mrs Glanville had shown when the scriptures were read to her. Hers had been a long and quietly useful life, and as she passed into the presence of her Divine Master she would experience to the full the fulfilment of the text-“Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the briar shall come up the myrtle tree.”. She was buried on 1 December 1903 at Worragee Cemetery, Nowra, NSW, AUS; by W Newby Fraser, Church of England, Undertaker: William Bryce. With Monumental Inscription "Also Mary Stevens, wife of the above who entered her rest Advent Sunday 29th Nov 1903."

The Late Mr. John Glanville.
The death occurred, on Sunday morning, in Nowra, of Mr. John Glanville, of Wogamia, after a brief illness from heart ailment. The deceased gentleman had just reached 60 years, but coming from a long-lived race, his demise is regarded as having taken place at a comparatively early age. The late Mr. Glanville was a native of the district, being the second son of the late Mr. John Glanville, J.P., one of the most worthy pioneers, who played a prominent part in the early history of Shoalhaven, and left a name for high-mindedness and sterling character second to none of the grand men who blazed the track of civilisation in this communitv. His partner in life was a woman or noble character and fine attributes. The exemplary lives of such worthy parents naturally had a good influence upon their children, all of whom have proved a credit to their upbringing. The gentleman now deceased was a worthy scion of his honored parents — a man of the strictest integrity, high minded, with a healthy outlook on life and his fellow-men, a devoted husband, an affectionate father, and a devout member of his church. In his younger days he was a man of great vigor and robustness, and it was not till quite recently that he developed heart weakness. About six weeks ago he came into Nowra for medical treatment, putting up with Mrs. Hampson in Berry-street, in the house erected and occupied by his parents, and where they both died. He gradually sank, despite the best attention, and peacefully passed away early on Sunday morning, retaining consciousness practically to the last. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, and was largely attended, testifying to the general esteem in which the deceased was held. A short service was held at All Saints' Church, the Rev. R. J. Cameron taking the opportunity to make feeling reference to the Christian faith, piety, and goodness of the departed, and to sympathise with the bereaved family. The coffin was carried to the grave by the deceased's six sons, and the last sad rites wore performed by the Revs. Cameron and Venn. Deceased leaves a widow, six sons (Rev. Corrie Glanville, Messrs Percy, Charles, Eric, Richard, and Douglas Glanville), and three daughters (Mrs Mottram and Misses Emily and Stephanie Glanville), also a large circle of relatives to mourn their irreparable loss. With the rest of the community we extend our deepest sympathy to the bereaved family. He was buried in May 1908 at Nowra General Cemetery, Nowra, NSW, AUS; with Monumental Inscription "In Loving Memory of John second son of the late John Glanville who fell asleep 3rd May 1908 aged 60 years."

Shoalhaven Telegraph 24 Jun 1925:
DEATH OF MR. SAM GLANVILLE.
The death of Mr. S. J. Glanville, which sad event occurred on Sunday afternoon, came as a shock to the community. He had been confined to his home for the past couple of weeks, but very few persons realised that he was in a critical state of health. As a matter of fact, his health -had been anything but satisfactory for about twelve months. He had been uinder treatment for diabetes for some time, and had been undergoing a course of dieting. Later he suffered from heart trouble, and for several weeks had been under the daily supervision of Drs.Rodway and Whitfeld, and last week Dr. Stafford, of Berry, was called in. He held out very little hope, confirming the opinion of the local doctors that the patient was in a very serious condition. All the members of his family were advised, and his sisters and (brother-in-law (Mr. Drummond) came down at the week-end. On Sunday morning Mr. Glanville was reported to be somewhat improved, having passed a good night. But in the afternoon, while conversing with his brother Harry, he collapsed, and shortly afterwards died. So sudden had the end come that Mr. Drummond, who had just previously left to catch the afternoon train on his return to Sydney, was shocked to hear the news of his brother-in-law's death when he had taken his seat in one of the carriages, and he thereupon returned to the house of mourning. The late Mr. Glanville was the youngest son of Mr. John Glanville, J.P., one of the earliest and (best known of the district settlers, and was born 'at Wogamia, in the old family homestead, 63 years ago. He engaged in farming pursuits, first at Wogamia, afterwards in the Berry end of the district, and later returned to the rich up-the-river farm, and about ten or twelve years ago purchased from Mr. C.R. Woodhill his fine town property on the heights of Worrigee-street, where he made his home with his wife and family of three daughters. While residing there he actively identified himself with church matters, being for quite a number of years the clergyman's warden of the iShoalhaven parish of St. John's. He was an earnest worker for his church, giving much time to the advancement of its interests and parish affairs generally. He was also actively associated with the Agricultural Society, being for years a member of the committee, and though not a talker he could always be relied on when work was to be done. Last year he occupied the position of vice-president. He was one of the trustees and guarantors for the Shoalhaven Tennis Club, and was ever ready to help, financially and otherwise, in any worthy public cause. Bluff and breezy in disposition, he was popular with all; he was everybody's friend and no one's enemy; a man of fine character and sterling worth; a model husband and exemplary father, and the community is the poorer for his demise. General sympathy is felt for the bereaved widow, children, and family in their bereavement.
The funeral took place yesterday afternoon, the mortal remains being conveyed first to All Saints' Church, where a , short service was held, and afterwards to the C.E. portion of the Nowra cemetery, where the interment took place. Rev. T. Terry conducted the last sad rites. He was buried in June 1925 at Nowra General Cemetery, Nowra, NSW, AUS; with Monumental Inscription "Sacred to the Memory of Samuel Joseph Glanville. Youngest son of the late John Glanville Wocamia, Shoalhaven and St Column Cornwall England. Who died 21st June 1925. Aged 62 years."

Late Mrs. Daniel Glanville.
By the death of Mrs. D. Glanville, of Berrara, on Wednesday last, the district has lost a worthy old pioneer, and one of those women whose life is given to doing good deeds and helping to make the world brighter and better for those who are in sickness, trouble, or distress. The old lady lived to the ripe age of 84 years, over 70 of which she spent in Shoalhaven. She was born in Maitland in 1833, and when only a child came with her parents (Hughes) to Jamberoo, where the family remained but a few years, coming on to Shoalhaven with the late Dr. Alley's family, the means of locomotion being a bullock waggon. She married before she was out of her teens the late Daniel Glanville, a member of another pioneer family. They settled down at Wogamia, and experienced many vicissitudes. In the '60 flood they lost everything they possessed, and again in the '70 flood ; but they battled on, Mrs. Glanviile keeping a brave heart, doing her duty to husband and family, and ever finding time to do neighborly and kindly acts. An excellent horsewoman, of indomitable courage,- great nerve, and skill in the sick room, it was a very common occurrence for her to ride at high speed, day or night, distances up to 30 or 40 miles to attend a sick person, without a thought of fee or reward, but with the womanly desire to bring relief and comfort to the suffering. The family eventually left the river, and settled at Berrara, where Mr. Glanville died about 15 years ago, and where Mrs. Glanville continued to reside till her death, doing what good she could until an accident, sustained on an errand of mercy, compelled her to suspend her activities. The deceased lady reared 12 children, 8 of whom survive her. She leaves a large number of grand-children, some great-grand-children, and several great great-grand-children, besides many old friends, and a name honored far and wide for her womanly attributes. The mortal remains were interred in the family burial-ground on the farm at Berrara, the Rev. Mr. Potter (Milton) performing the last sad rites.
