About Job Dabinett

Job, his wife Sophia and the first three of their children, James, George and Rebeccah are listed living at 29 Sedgmoor Drove in Curry Rivel in the 1851 Census. Job and Sophia were both living in Swell when they married by Banns in Swell, Somerset, 19 Nov 1844. The Registrar was R William Lambert, Vicar, and James Hodges and Rebekah Dabinett were witnesses - no-one signed the register.

From the "Otago Witness" of 2 February 1856:

" Arrived. Feb. 1 "Isabella Hercus", 568 tons, Sewell, master, from London, via Port Cooper. Passengers. Mr and Mrs Edwards and 5 children, Mrs Duncan, James Duncan, Miss Binney, Mrs Baker and child, Mr and Mrs Alexander, Job Dabinett, wife, and 5 children, J. Brown. - J. Jones, agent. [22 passengers]"

Job and his family took up a selection at Warepa. The first house they built was 4 room wattle-and-daub thatched with rushes and the next, a 6-room house was of pit-sawn timber. Their furniture was all handmade with axes and knives.
