Amelia Emma Hayes (known as Emma) arrived in Port Chalmers on the Dunedin (from Melbourne) on 12th March 1860 (as recorded in the Otago Witness, 17th March 1860) with her husband, son and two daughters. Her husband, Attiwell Hayes is listed in Wises Dunedin Directory (1866) as a milliner in George Street, and they resided in Great King Street (1868) and Moray Place West (1871). One daughter (1852) and one son (1858) were born to Attiwell and Emma Hayes in Melbourne, Victoria suggesting that they migrated to Australia in the period 1850-1852 (they were married in Ireland in 1850, both were Protestants from County Cork) and subsequently moved to Dunedin.
Sadly, Amelia Emma Hayes was killed by her husband, “during temporary insanity”. He then killed himself. The Otago Witness of 14th February 1880 has details of the Coroner’s Inquest on page 19.
