About Elizabeth Humphreys

FAULKNER On December 17, 1911 at the residence of her son (J D Faulkner), Elizabeth, relict of the late John Lees Faulkner, aged 91. [Bay Of Plenty Times, Volume XL, Issue 5746, 18 December 1911, Page 4] It is our sad duty to record the death of Mrs Elizabeth Faulkner, relict of the late Mr John Lees Faulkner, which occurred here yesterday at the ripe age of 91 years. Deceased had lived in the Tauranga district for 67 years. Her husband was a prominent resident in these parts before and after the Maori war. He was engagcd as a trader, and had a store at Otumoetai, where he purchased wheat, potatoes, gum, pigs, etc., from the Natives, and sold to them in return [for] clothing and food. He owned several trading vessels which were used in the transport of goods between Tauranga and Auckland. When the war broke out Mr Faulkner was compelled to transfer his storekeeping business to Tauranga, which was established on the site now occupied by Messrs Dickie and Mathieson's premises. He conducted the business on the Strand for some time, and then re-established the Otumoetai store, which he ran successfully for some years afterwards. Subsequently he retired from business and took up his residence on land at Otumoetai. Mrs Faulkner is survived by one son, Mr J D Faulkner who is the proprietor of a ferry service between the town and Maunganui. The funeral took place this afternoon, the last rites of the Church of England being performed at the graveside by the Rev. Canon Jordan.
