Mr. & Mrs. U** : the story of a high country marriage in early Canterbury by Thomas Everard Upton( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through their letters to his native Shropshire in England between 1865 and 1902 Everard Upton and his wife, Eunice Adams, speak to us of the tribulations, but also of the pleasures, of life on remote country sheep stations in the early years of the European settlement of Canterbury. These letters vividly describe what it was like to live, work and raise children in the high country of Canterbury during the early years of settlement. They also tell the history of a marriage that had an ignominious end. Mr & Mrs U** is a virtual 'who's who' of Canterbury and with its detailed information and many illustrations, will appeal to family and social historians
A woman's sphere by Audrey Adams( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the mid-19th century a woman's place in society - or sphere- was dictated by very different standards and expectations. A Woman's Sphere is the story of Florence Pettigrew's marriage to Charles Spurway, the son of a transported convict and known as 'Cornstalk' - a name commonly given to children who grew taller and stronger than their convict parents. Florence a free woman and talented artist, works in her father's store in Hobart Town, Tasmania. One day, with the jingle of the shop door bell, Charles appears, wanting to buy a gift for his grandfather, a remittance man. Gradually, a relationship, not encouraged by her father, develops and leads to marriage. Initially idyllic, the marriage encounters difficulties stoically borne by Florence. Charles, on the other hand, does not accept his lot and following his dreams and wanting to leave his 'cornstalk' label behind, decides to move to New Zealand. In the Wairarapa township of Masterton he sets up as a stock and station agent. Florence has no choice but to move with him. Trapped in a marriage she can't escape, Florence is consoled by her art, and her involvement in the temperance movement and the battle to gain women the vote. There are tragic consequence"--Publisher's website
