Richard and Lucy Brandon (nee Ballard)
Richard and Lucy Brandon (nee Ballard)
From Rev. Brian Brandon

Richard was born in Rotherhithe, England, in 1842, the third child of Samuel and Jane Brandon. He was brought up on his father's market garden at Rotherhithe.

At the time of the 1851 census, they were living at 2 Paradise Row, Rotherhithe, which was where the market garden was. He married Lucy Ballard, daughter of James, a hotel keeper, and Alice, and grand- daughter of Isaac Ballard, on the 5th of September 1865, in the Parish church at Broadstairs, Kent, by the Rev Fred Newell. At the time Richard's address was Saint John Machline, Middlesex, and his occupation was stated as a market gardener.

Richard and Lucy must have moved a lot. Up until about 1870 they lived at Lower Clapton, then at Plaistow, London until about 1876. In 1877 they were living at 11 Cemetery Road, Peckham, Surrey, and Richard was then a clerk at a basket factory. Clearly, Richard, for some reason, decided to leave the market gardening business. He may have been moving to where he could find work.

Richard, at some stage travelled quite widely, and must have had some means to do this, although using it up in the process. He could speak French quite well, and it is said that he had a mistress in France. Richard came out by himself to New Zealand in 1878, on the `Otaki', leaving Gravesend on the 11th of September, and arriving in Wellington on the 10th of December, a passage of 90 days. The ship was considered one of the fastest to make the trip, making 17 altogether to NZ. There were 53 passengers on board.

He must have thought NZ a suitable place to live, because he returned home to bring out his wife Lucy and his family who arrived at Wellington on the 29th October, 1881 on the sailing ship `Pleione'. The voyage lasted 103 days. There were 37 passengers. The Pleione was later (in 1887) stranded at Waikanae Beach because of a navigational error at night.

Richard and Lucy had ten children born to them in England: Edward, Grace, Herbert, Frederick, James, Edith, Adolphus, Alice, James and Richard. The first James, and Alice died in infancy. Edith did not come to NZ, so she must have been left with another member of the family in England. They settled in Wanganui, living first in Sydney Place and then in Riverbank Road in a house built by Herbert Brandon. They had a further two children born to them in Wanganui, Kitty and Lionel. Richard died of a heart attack in Wanganui on the 5th of February, 1898, aged 56, and was buried in Wanganui Old Cemetery. He had suffered from heart trouble for many years.

Lucy had many talents, one which was producing lovely needlework, and this was one of her pleasures right to the end of her life. She was a delightful, witty and cheerful person. After her family left her, Lucy moved to live in Wellington with her daughter, Grace Ewart, and then when her daughter died, she went to Tinakori Road and lived with an old friend, Mrs Rickson. Her faculties were with her till the last. She spent her last afternoon with a friend and seemed her best. She died from angina in 1926, aged 85. Her funeral service was held in St. Paul's church with only relatives and very close friends present, and she was buried in the Karori Cemetery.

Richard Ballard Brandon
Richard Ballard Brandon
From Rev. Brian Brandon

Jock was born on the 13th of September, 1878 at Nunhead, the last of the family to be born in England. He was a farm hand, who worked at a number of different places. He was more slightly built than Dol.

During WWI, he served in the army in France. Whilst on leave he visited the Aunts, Alice and Minnie and his sister Edith.

On his return to NZ, he worked on several farms around Wanganui. When Millicent moved to 110 Somme Parade, he came to live with the family. His whistling and working the dogs in his sleep caused the family many sleepless nights, so when the family shifted to 16 Hipango Terrace, Millicent converted the garage into a bed-sitting room. He was very happy with the arrangement as he enjoyed being on his own. Breakfast was taken to him on a tray and he had his mid-day and tea meal with the family. He used to leave the family circle each night at 9pm.

He was rather eccentric and caused the teenagers in the family many embarrassments. Jock used to make trips into the Hauturu valley at times. When Jock's health failed and Millicent could no longer cope, he was placed in a rest home, `Hikurangi' and later was at Jubilee Hospital for some months, until his death on the 26th of December, 1959.

Richard Gray Worcester - Visit to USA?
Richard visited the USA in 1950, but it appears he was resident there from 9 Feb 1950 to 30 Aug 1950. On his immigration document for his return flight to the USA from England on 3 Oct 1950, he gives his address as 2813 28th Street, Washington DC and his purpose of visit "to resume residence".
He gives his wife, Anne Rosemary's address as Taplow, Buckinghamshire, so was this likely to be just a short term residence?

Samuel and Jane Charlotte Brandon (nee Wooster)
Samuel and Jane Charlotte Brandon (nee Wooster)
From Rev. Brian Brandon:

Samuel Brandon, my great-great grandfather, the oldest of Richard and Henrietta's children, was born in 1800 at Rotherhithe. He must have grown up and probably worked on the market gardens at Rotherhithe. He is also named as a valuer. Samuel's grandson, Ted, said that he remembers his father saying "they used to have hundred's of Irish workmen on the gardens."

He married Jane Charlotte Wooster on the 15th of August 1935 at Holy Trinity Church, Newington. They had four children, born in Rotherhithe, Samuel, Jane, Richard and Liversidge. We know that in 1843 Samuel was on the market garden at Rotherhithe. His gardens consisted of a number of paddocks, near Deptford Lower Road, and bounded by Paradise Row and Prospect Place. There was a house on the market garden at 2 Paradise Row, where they lived. Adjoining his property on the Deptford Lower Road were further paddocks in pasture belonging to William, Samuel's younger brother.

The 1851 census shows both brothers still in the area. At this time Samuel is recorded as having 50 acres and 30 labourers on his property. As well as Samuel and Jane at home, there were Richard (8yrs) and Liversidge (1yr), and two nieces, Amy (12yrs) and Sarah (10yrs). There is no mention of the oldest children Samuel, and Jane.

At some stage he moved to Marlow, a posh place on the Thames, and called his house there, `Suffolk Lodge' a reference to their belief that they were descended from the famous Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk. He moved there because he was on the staff of the royal household at Windsor.

Sylvia Worster - Obituary (2006)
o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.toronto_star 2006-02-11 published WORSTER, Sylvia (May 20, 1954-January 26, 2006) It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Sylvia WORSTER in Winnipeg. She will be dearly missed by her son, William FINES; parents, Agnes and Alex WORSTER; sister, Louise and brother-in-law, Geoff FOSTER; brother, Paul and niece, Katie and nephew, Simon; William's father, Kent FINES; and many other relatives and friends. Sylvia grew up in Winnipeg, graduating from Garden City Collegiate in 1971. She lived most of her adult life in Toronto, but lived in Winnipeg during the last year and a half. Sylvia was loved for her sweetness, kindness and her deep feeling for the well-being of others. We were in awe of her determined nature, intelligence and independent spirit. We share her love for her son William and her pride in him as he pursues his studies at the University of Guelph. Her goodness will always be with us. A memorial service was held in Winnipeg on February 2. If friends wish, donations may be made in Sylvia's memory to The Nature Conservancy of Canada, 110 Eglinton Ave. West, Suite 400, Toronto, Ontario M4R 1A3 or a charity of their choice.

Fifty Years of Sail in the New Zealand Trade, 1850 to 1900


The Waikato, a well-found ship of 1021 tons, flying the New Zealand Shipping Co.'s flag, was a real clipper, and completed many fast voyages out and home. Of twelve passages outwards only three exceeded 100 days.

In 1878 Captain Worster reported leaving Plymouth with 298 immigrants and nine saloon passengers on October 21, and passed the Lizard the same day, with the Lactura in company.
