General Notes: Husband - Herbert Edwin Rea


b.2nd Q 1866, He attended Trinity House School Hull and was a Humber River Pilot. He lived in Apia, Samoa for a long period during his life arriving in the 1880's. He had a confounding number of wives/relationships and children, which was, apparently, not unusual for English Expats in Samoa. On November 22 1894 he married Taiafi, daughter of a Samoan named Lualemnana, in a Roman Catholic Cathedral. Richard Hetherinton, Robert Louis Stevenson's lawyer, was listed as a witness. Herbert was listed as divorced and Taiafi was listed as "under age". Herbert was listed as a surveyor and accountant. Herbert, also, married Faifaiese Malietoa (a member of the Samoan Royal family): they had a daughter Florence Rea b.??d.?? Florence Rea married Notise Magele b.? d .1965: they had a son Edwin b. 12 April 1918, Vaiala, Apia Samoa (died Oct 2001, New Zealand). He married Senia Lotumallii b.1924, Safune, Samoa d.2005, New Zealand. In 1910 a woman identified as Flora Pfanchuk was staying with Edith (Rea) Lee in Hawaii and was identified as a sister in law from Samoa. Could this have been Faifaiese after her divorce from Herbert and remarriage to a man surnamed Pfamchuk? If so, the wife who, in February 1907, visited John Henry Rea in Germany with Herbert (first visiting Cologne) could have been Taiafi. They may have returned from Germany via England as, later, in 1907, Herbert Edwin and his wife travelled on SS Canada (Dominion Line) from Liverpool (they left on 25 July 1907) to Montreal on their way to Samoa. On the ship's manifest Herbert's occupation is listed as Planter, and Herbert Edwin's age is noted as 40 whilst he wife was 30 years old. Presumably, Herbert obtained his land from his Samoan princess wife, as in that culture, the royal family were, generally, the largest landholders. It is said that Faifaiese got a cold and then died when she was quite young. Polenesians were very susceptible to western diseases and many died.

Herbert Edwin Rea also had a relationship in Samoa - which, maybe, started in about 1906 - with Annie Cealia Wilson b.abt 1884(German but born in Apia, Samoa) - she was the maid to Herbert and his wife. Herbert and Annie had two children Herbert b?; and Dora b 29 Dec 1916, Apia d. 1 Aug 2009, New Zealand. Dora married Eric Barnard Neumegen b.1901 Auckland NZ d.1965 Hawkes Bay NZ (his father Walter Martin Neumegen had started the law firm Neumegen & Neumegen in New Zealand). Annie Cealia and her two children lived in Samoa, though they spent some time in Fiji, returning at a later date to Samoa. In later life Dora (Annie Cealia's daughter) said that she and her brother "felt bitter " towards their father Herbert Edwin.

In 1913 a "Mrs H E Rea" (as listed on the ship's manifest) sailed with her daughter Daphney aged 4 from Pago Pago, Samoa (via Sydney) to Honolulu - she left on 26 Sept 1913 on SS Ventura and arrived on 3 Oct ; her husband paid for their passage and they were both described as having a dark complexion with black hair and brown eyes; Mrs. Rea was aged 29 and her daughter was 4. It may be that they were visiting Herbert Edwin's sister Edith Maria Lee (nee Rea), as Herbert Edwin is known to have been in contact with her during this period. It would appear that this may have been a different wife from the one who was age 30 when she traveled with Herbert to Germany in 1907. It is said that Herbert Edwin Rea also had a relationship with a woman in Tonga. She was, possibly, named Emmi - as a postcard was written from The Friendly Isles (Tonga) from an "Emmi" to Jane Martha Rea (addressing her as "Dear Mother") on 9 February 1912. Could the Mrs. Rea with daughter Daphney be this Emmi? Herbert Edwin owned land in Tonga and he had left instructions that on his death the land should pass to his Samoan grandchildren. However, after his death, there was a dispute between the grandchildren about this and so the land did not go to them.

Herbert Edwin was still a Planter in Samoa in 1918 as the documents relating to a journey he took on his own at this time from Samoa to Liverpool via Sydney Australia, Honolulu and New York all confirm this. In fact this journey took some time: he left Sydney, sailing on SS Sierra, on 30 January 1918 and arrived in Honolulu on 13 February - the ship's manifest for his arrival in Honolulu is very detailed: he is described as married though his nearest relative is named as his son T H Rea in Samoa (could this be Cealia's son Herbert?); his last permanent residence was Apia, Samoa and his final destination was London with his passage being paid for by himself. He declared that he had been to the USA before (California in 1881) but that he was staying in Honolulu to visit his sister Mrs T Lee (ie Edith Maria Rea); he was described as having a fair complexion, height 5 feet 7.5 inches, with brown hair and brown eyes. He stayed in Honolulu until 26 March 1918 when he left for San Francisco on SS Sonoma and arrived there on 1 April 1918 (NB on the ship's manifest he is described as single and his nearest relative or friend is named as F. Syddall p/a Apia Samoa). The last leg of his journey to England was from New York to Liverpool on The White Star Line SS Canopic and he arrived there on 28 April 1918: the UK incoming passenger list states that his permanent residence was Samoa but the 'country of intended future residence' is noted as "England'; his address in England is given as 'c/ o Messers W & H Johnson, National Oil Works, Hull' - the firm of his brother-in-law (his sister Mary Jane Rea was married to Hubert Johnson) .
Herbert E Rea was elected a Fellow of the Royal Colonial Institute (now the Royal Commonwealth Society) in 1918: he was listed as non-resident and based in Samoa.

He left the UK and arrived in Sydney Australia in Spring 1922. He became a sheep farmer but conditions were so bad that he sailed from Sydney to London on the SS Baradine, arriving there on February 27, 1931. On 21 March 1931 at the Register Office, Sculcoates, Hull Herbert Edwin Rea married Alice Charlotte Cherry, aged 43. He is listed on the marriage certificate as a widower and a retired Master Mariner, whilst she was a spinster and the address for both of them was Braybrook, Willow Park Hessle, Hull and the witnesses were Alice's mother and stepfather. Alice Charlotte Cherry b. 1st quarter 1888, Hull was the daughter of George Ernest Cherry, a lamp merchant, who had died a few months after his daughter was born; In the spring of 1890 at St Luke's church Hull her mother Alice Elizabeth remarried - to Frederick Dixon, also a lamp merchant and manufacturer, - W H Dixon & Co, 294 Beverley Road Hull. On 30 September 1931 Herbert Edwin Rea died of coal gas poisoning: the verdict at the Inquest held on 2 October was that he had committed suicide. The death certificate notes that he had been working as a commercial traveller/travelling salesman and that his address was 4 Murray field Road, Chanterlands Avenue Hull.

General Notes: Husband - William Manners Wood


1891 census lists him in parish Church Lawford rectory in Warwikshire. He lists Warwickshire as his place of birth. 1881 census lists Kempton, Worcester as place of birth. His residence is listed as Mill House in Chartham. Littleton is near Shepperton in Middlesex. According to the January 27, 1893 edition of the Coventry Herald, West Midlands, it was about that time that William received the appointment as Rector of St Mary Magdalene in Littleton. According to the Whistable Times and Herne Bay Herald for Saturday April 20, 1889 it was about that time that he left as Reverand for the Parish of Faversham to become Rector for the Church in Lawford. According to the Morning Advertiser for Friday February 13, 1857, page 8, he was born "at the Firs" near Worcester on Monday February 9, 1857 and his father was a "Captain". He was Rector of St Mary Magdalene in Littleton from 1893 until his death in 1933 ( see photo of rectory ) He is buried in the cemetery of this church, Grave C45, an ornmental cross in double kerb. Front: "In beloved memroyh of William Manners Wood M.A. Rector of Littleton 1893-1933 born 9 Feb. 1857 - died 20 June 1933 'Arise, shine: for thy light is gone' Isaiah LX.V.1 Also Gwenellen his wife born 16 July 1890 - died 15th March 1970." On the South side: "Basil Mountray Priest son-in-law of William Mannerw Wood fell asleep 7 August 1933 buried at Lewes 'They were lovely & pleasant in their lives'". The church has a stained glass window in his memory .  He was appointed rector by his cousin Thomas Wood .

 

Rector who is an organ builder” by George A. Wade in Home Words for Heart and Hearth, vol. xlv (1915), pg. 284, reports “The Rev. W. M. Wood, Rector of Littleton Church, near Shepperton, Middlesex, is known far and wide not only as an energetic parish clergyman, but as a musician greatly above the average. The Rector has always been very musical in his tastes, and has, with his organist, made the monthly Sunday organ-recitals in the beautiful little country church at Littleton most successful, and helped in training a very efficient choir. But, though his parishioners know that the rector is a clever exponent of organ music when himself seated at the instrument, not all of them are aware that the rector is one of the finest amateur organ­ builders in the kingdom. The splendid organ at Littleton is certainly unique among instruments in our country churches, in that it cost well over £1,200 to erect, was chiefly designed by the Rector, and was also partly built by him. It possesses several notable features invented by the rector, and since copied by famous builders into other organs. Not least of the novelties is what is known as "the celestial organ," an arrangement that gives very lovely and soft effects, making the music appear to come from a distance - a useful accomplishment in such a small edifice, where otherwise the sound of the organ might almost drown the singing of the people.”
