- Mrs Annie Telfer, Parua Bay Pioneer, Dies At Age Of 101.
In her 102nd year, Mrs Annie Telfer has died at the residence of her daughter,
Mrs NG Stewart, of 1 Dent Street, Whangarei. She has 119 direct descendants. A
great great grandmother, Mrs Telfer was born in Queen Street, Auckland, two
years after the arrival of her parents from Greenoch.
In 1864 she married Mr John Telfer, and the young couple took up some bush land
at Rukuwai, Parua Bay. The only communication that could be had in those early
days was by a small sailing ship from Auckland or a row boat from Whangarei. Mr
Telfer died 63 years ago.
Unassuming and quiet natured, Mrs Telfer was content, until the beginning of
1944 to live at the old homestead property at Parua Bay, which had been her
home for years.
Of her 119 direct descendants, only two, a daughter and a son, have died of
natural causes. The only other deceased members of this exceptionally long
lived family were three grandsons; one killed in the Great War, another in the
last war and a third in the Australian Bush.
There were 12 in Mrs Telpher's own family; six girls and six boys, the eldest
now being 81 and the youngest 64. There are 45 grandchildren and 55 great
grandchildren, while there are also 4 great great grandchildren.
Mrs Telfer, who had resided in the Whangarei district the greater part of her
life, witnessed the gradual modernisation of transport and communications,
while country which in her younger days was heavily covered in bush became
prosperous farming land.
