General Notes: Child - William Thomas Rea


Baptised December 25, 1856. He attended Trinity House School and obtained his Master Mariner Certificate on October 15, 1880. He married in 1879 Annie Elizabeth Morrell b.1854 (daughter of a Hull builder, Joseph Morrell); their daughter was Annie Elizabeth Rea b.1880 Hull. It has been suggested that William was an absentee father - certainly in 1881 and 1891 Annie Rea and her daughter were living with Annie's parents at 45 Lansdowne St Hull and Annie was working as a dressmaker. He was employed for at least ten years by the Wilson Shipping Line, by 1900 the largest private ship owning company in the world. He sailed on long voyages spending up to a year at a time at sea. In 1882 he crewed on the SS Anerley from London to Sydney. Other ships on which he worked were SS Salmo, SS Leo, SS Nero, SS Humber and SS Sapho.On February 23, 1885 he sailed from Hull on the SS CAiro. At the beginning of October the ship docked at Cronstadt (St. Petersburg's main port). On October 4 he went in a small boat to visit a friend of his father on another ship. On the way back he attempted to spring onto a companion ladder on his ship from the small boart and fell into the water hitting his head during the fall. He was drowned. By 1901 Annie Rea (junior) had married Edward Smith b.1872 - a leather merchant's assistant - and had a daughter Doris Smith b.1898. Annie Rea (senior) was living with them at 1 The Avenues Linneaus St Hull (next door to her mother-in-law, see above) and is listed in the census as being a widow. Annie Rea (senior) died in the autumn of 1906.


General Notes: Child - Mary Jane Rea


Christened Jan 3 1859 Holy Trinity, Kingston upon Hull. Educated at Kingston Academy, Hull. Mary Jane Johnson was awarded one of the first OBEs: the citation in Burke's Handbook of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, published in 1921 describes the contribution she made to Hull during the first world war: "1915, organised Club for Soldiers' and Sailors' wives, with membership of 1400, and actively associated with this until its closing in 1919; in connection with St. John Ambulance, did rest station work, and from Sept.1915 was closely connected with parcels for Prisoners of War, and organised workers for same ; 1917-18, Lady Mayoress of the City and County of Hull, during that period organised meetings for war savings, food economy, concerts for Serbian refugees, sewing meetings, and parcel packing for E.Yorks troops, comforts for E.R.Units, and was interested in all work that was for the benefit of the city and its people during that time" Her husband was Lord Mayor of Hull 1917-1918.


General Notes: Child - John Henry Rea


John Henry's wife Fanny died on 20 May 1889 from an ectopic pregnancy - leaving three very young children; these children were cared for by various members of the Rea family (particularly their Grandmother Rea ) until John Henry married (on 24.12.1892 St John's church New Clee) Norah Harriet Schollar (daughter of a coastguard in Grimsby) and they had two sons: Sutherland Schollar Rea 1893 (died at birth) and Newman Noel Rea b.1895; Norah was a loving stepmother to John Henry's three children by his first wife but left him before 1901 - it is said that she described him as a mean, tyrannical man (the census of 1901 lists Norah Harriett Rea as living with her son and sister at 11 Fountain St Hull). It is believed that John Henry Rea also had a son with a French woman (?Emmie Roux) when he was living in Germany: it is understood that the baby was sent away to a wet nurse at birth and later died.
John Henry Rea had a variety of jobs - managing clerk, commercial traveller, grocer's manager and manager of a colour works - before establishing (after his wife's death in 1889) several schools in Germany teaching English as a foreign language. He was based in Germany from c1900 - working as a translator and English language teacher (he was also a very active member of the English Club in Dusseldorf) until the outbreak of war in 1914 when he returned to the UK. For a time before he died he lived with his daughter Gwennie at 19 Blundell Avenue Cleethorpes but finally died of cerebral haemorrhage at 100 Scartho Road in Grimsby on 9 August 1920, the death was registered by his eldest son Henry Hamlyn Rea of 16 West Dock St Grimsby who inherited from his fathe r 50.16s.10d (there was no will).

General Notes: Child - 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: Child - Edith Maria Rea


In the 1900 census, she gives her birth month as July 1868. I believe this to be incorrect, as I have a birth certificate for Edith Maria Rea, born March 6, 1868, whose mother was Jane Martha Dawson. This can't be a coincidence since Edith gave her twins the middle name Dawson. According to the 1900 census, she emigrated to Hawaii in 1896. This coincides with the Yorkshire census records, which list Edith M. Rea,, whose mother is Jane Martha (Dawson) Rea, for the 1891 census but not the 1901 census. Her daughter, Marjorie D. Lee, said that her mother and father were "high school sweathearts". Since Thomas Lee attended the Trinity House School, which was all boys, it is more likely that they knew each other because one of Edith's brothers, also, went to the Trinity House School. Both Thomas's father, Job Lee, and Edith's father, John Rea, were Humber River Pilots and, therefore, members of the Trinity House Guild which ran the school to, among other things, teach pilotage. According to Marjorie D. Lee, her father actually went to Hull to propose to Edith and that she came out later, presumably, after he gathered together the money to pay for her trip. According to The Daily Bulletin (a Hawaii newspaper) dated October 20, 1892, Thomas Lee, a sugar boiler, returned from San Francisco on the W.H. Dimond that morning. The Dimond was a three masted Barquentine. It appears that it took Thomas from 1886, when he arrived in Hawaii after completing his apprenticehsip on the SS Amethyst, to 1892 (6 years) to gather together enough money to travel to Hull to propose. It then took an additional 4 years for him to gather enough money to pay for Edith's passage. She had to wait for four years for him. According to the Hawaiian Star for Saturday March 14, 1896, Edith arrived that day on the RMSS Monowai from San Francisco. The Monawai was a one stack steam ship built in 1890 and operated by the Union Steamship Co. out of New Zealand. According to Marjorie D Lee, her mother traveled by steam ship from Hull to NY. She then took the transcontinental railroad from New York to San Francisco, before boarding the Monawai. It took her about three weeks to get from Hull to Honolulu. She was married in Oahu two days after arriving, according to the Hawaiian Star for Tuesday March 17, 1896. The couple then returned to the Big Island, where Thomas was working, four days later, March 20, on the steamer W. G. Hall, according to the Hawaiian Gazette for March 24, 1896. According to the Hawaiian Star for January 6, 1911, Edith was the organist for a masonic organization called the Order of the Eastern Star.
