George GREGG

Born 1846, Barr Ayrs
Died 4 Sep 1902, Tokonui New Zealand
Buried Toknui Remerey Reserve New Zealand
SOURCE: M.I-Barr/Otago Newpaper
George went to Dunedin New Zealand in 1868, married Julia Louise Doyle, and died aged 56 in Tokonui New Zealand. He is listed on family monument at Barr Churchyard. He died from Asthma and Bronchitis.

The following was reported in an Ayrshire newspaper and is an extract from an Otago, New Zealand paper.

DEATH OF AN AYRSHIRE MAN IN NEW ZEALAND
I regret having to report that Mr George Gregg, one of our most respected settlers, died on Thur.4th. Sept.1902.
About ten years ago he was seized with a severe attack of asthma and bronchitis, which so impaired his health that he remained an invalid until the end. Though able to move about and superintend his farm operations he was not able to undertake active work.
The late Mr Gregg was a native of Ayrshire, born and brought up at Barrhill near Girvan. His Mother two sisters and two brothers are still alive and one of his brothers now occupies the same farm as his late father was tenant of. Mr. Gregg left home and arrived in Dunedin in 1868, and was occupied in the management of Stockton Galloway Station Dunstan District for 14 years. He left that situation to take up land at Tokonui, where he resided for the last 19 years. His family being young when he arrived here, it was a hard struggle breaking the native land and converting it into an arable farm, which however he succeeded well in doing.
Throughout his residence in Tokonui the deceased gentleman wits actively and prominently identified with every phase of local progress. Possessing the implicit confidence of the whole district, as one who strove to better the condition of his fellow man without motives of a mercenary nature to further his own ends, he was invariably entrusted with office and discharged his duties with the greatest interest and attention to detail. At the time of his death he held the offices of Chairman of School committee, Chairman and Secretary Dairy Factory, Commissioner of Cemetery and Recreation Ground. Prior to his coming to Tokonui he was an elder of the Presbyterian Church in Dunstan, under Rev. Lohian and he held similar office in Toi Toi congregation under Rev. Johnston of Fortrose. He did splendid work in the settling of a new district in primitive conditions. Along with his respected wife he had brought up and maintained a family of four sons and three daughters.
According with Mr Gregg's wish he was buried in The Cemetery Reserve Tokonui.
(The deceased was a son of the late Mr. John Gregg, farmer, Shallochwell).

(Keith Douglas Gregg - I believe this to be the following person:*Mr. James MCFADZIEN, 19 Eccles Street, Gore, farmer )
CORRECTION: Email 1 AUG 2011 from Peter Crump NZ: To whom it may concern,I have just had an interesting look through the web-site. While reading the final summary I spotted that in the list of children to child no 2 , their eldest, James Gregg McFadzien, is believed to be the same James McFadzien of Eccles St. Gore, Farmer. This is not the case as James from Gore was my Grandfather through his daughter Dorothy Crump ( nee McFadzien ). He did not have a middle name. James Gregg McFadzien and James McFadzien were cousins. I trust this is helpful. Regards, Peter Crump, Invercargill , NZ .

ADDITIONAL INFO from Peter Crump:
Dear Alec, easy to see how assumptions can be made while doing this research. The information you need to confirm follows: The parents of James McFadzien, farmer of Gore, were JAMES & ELIZABETH (nee Jones) McFadzien. James was b. 29/9/1878 , d. 17/8/1962. Elizabeth b. 9/4/1882, d. 9/2/1959. They were married in 1905. I trust this is enough for you to go on with . I do have otrer info. but not at hand, regards, Peter

Email April 2009 Sean Nicol (seannicol@hotmail.com) - Cairo Egypt.
: Hello cousin, I'm Sean Dawson Nicol born 1968 Invercargill NZ, my Great-grandfather is George Gregg, my grandmother is Daisy Jean Dawson (nee Gregg).
Found your site today after searching for info on my Great-uncle George Gregg buried Caserta Italy 1942. After attending ANZAC service today in Cairo, Egypt, and visiting El Alamein Commonwealth War Cemetery last week, (searching for a friends grandfathers grave), it prompted me into organising myself to fulfill my late grandmothers wish for someone from the family to visit his final resting place.

About my immediate family, we are currently living in Cairo, Egypt. My wife Randa Ramzy Georgi Nicol is Egyptain, and works as cabin crew for British Airways.
We have twin boys born April 2006, Invercargill NZ, Joshua Dawson Nicol, and Emmanuel Gregg Nicol, as you can see I thought it important to keep the Gregg name alive in our branch of the tree.

My mother Alwyn Nicol (nee Dawson) is the unoffical keeper of own families history, and would be able to help completing alot of the NZ side. If you wish I'll contact her and get any information you require, plus I'm sure she can scan a copy of our branch.

Cheers
Sean Nicol

GREGG David farmer. Next of kin: H J GREGG, brother, Tokanui, Southland. Married Ivy RACE – Tokanui book

They had: 1. Majory Eleanor. Married Garnett BLAMPIED
2. Norma Ivy. Married Graham BLICK
Very little more of this family. David must have died prior to 1949 as Ivy was in the Invercargill Electoral Rolls as a widow from 1949 through until she disappears from them between 1963 and 1966 when she presumably died, moved or remarried. I could not find Majory BLAMPIED in any current Electoral for Southland or Otago
