Notes

Charles came out with his parents in the John Taylor in 1853. He went with his brother Claude (#262) on an exploration of the West Coast in 1862. In giving evidence in a cattle stealing case he said he was managing for Studholme and Innes in 1862. In 1863 he signed a testimonial to Edward Hebard licensee of the Royal Hotel, Timaru. He was Hon Sec of the newly formed Chch Football Club in Aug 1863. They played a Town v College match in Latimer Square. The first game lasted nearly two hours when Wilson for Town kicked a goal. F Britten won the second game for College by kicking a goal after 20 minutes. The kicking of a goal concluded the game. He was on the Committee of the Heathcote Rowing Club in 1866. When the Chch and Canterbury Cricket Clubs amalgamated and became the "United", he was one of the committee. He was put on the committee of the new mounted Volunteer Corps in Oct 1864 and was secretary. Later he was gazetted a coinet(?) of the CYC. At the first regatta held at Kaiapoi Jan 1868, XXXXXX (Railway Rowing Club) won the principal race of the day. The crew was 1. J Jameson, 2. H Thomas, 3. W Packard, stroke. C M Ollivier, cox. A Brunsden. When John became the Prov. Auditor (1865) he returned from the farm and from then on Charles and Wilby carried on the auctioneering business under the name of Ollivier and Co. They were bankrupt in July 1867. In 1869 Charles was a reporter on the staff of The Press. In 1870 he was in the Auckland Province engaged in flax milling. In 1871 he had invented a method of cleaning and dressing flax supposed to be far superior to anything so far produced and he went to Wellington to offer it the the government for 3000 pounds. This story was repeated about most flax millers; nothing more was heard of all the inventions and flax milling ruined most people engaged in it. In Sep 1871 he was working on the telegraph line to Akaroa and cut his ankle very severely, cutting some of the ankle bone right through but missing the joint. He was brought to Akaroa next day. He wrote a description of the boiling springs in the North Island which as a pamphlet was published by Hughes of High St. - ref O.66 G R Mac Donald Dict of Canterbury Biographies, Canterbury Museum _____________________________________________________________________________ Notes: Apparently did not go to Christ's College even though he was only 12 years old when he arrived. _____________________________________________________________________________

Notes

* Died aged 22 while exploring Jackson's Bay, Westland with Charles (263)

"An early freelance expedition in search of pasture and gold was undertaken by the Canterbury brothers Claude and Charles Ollivier, who chartered the Schooner Ada to explore the more southerly portions of the West Coast. They set sail from Port Nicholson on 29 july 1862 and, after some delays, dropped anchor in Jacksons Bay at noon on 12 August 1862. They came across an old track which had evidently been used by whalers to bring timber to their camp. Various other signs, such as felled trees and skids leading down to the water, indicated that Europeans had once worked there. No doubt in their mind's eye the Olliviers pictured the scenes of yesteryear. In this bay whalers and sealers had plied their trade - busily carving out a livelihood with the forest at their back and the great ocean at their feet - while they made a precarious foothold on the land. For truly they had barely scratched these inhospitable fastnesses: within these bounds they had always remained intruders, and they had always remained alone. Not only were the Ollivier brothers homesick for civilisation but they were suffering some of the consequences. Unfortunately Claude, who caught a chill at the Buller a week earlier, was now running a fever. Nevertheless on the second day after arrival at the Bay they took their rowing boat across the Arawata bar, noting that it was only seven feet (2.13m) deep, and on up the Arawata until, at a point about two kilometers upstream, their passage was barred by rapids. On the way back they met four Maoris who proudly showed them a Melbourne newspaper. Written on the paper the brothers read a message: "Barque Robert Ramsay called here 12 April 1862 to obtain forage for sheep." On discovering that others had forestalled them in their search for pastureland for sheep, the brothers might have been downcast; but they were more concerned about the suggestion (probably made in the same newspaper) that the United Kingdom government was ready to establish a convict settlement at Jacksons Bay! Claude Ollivier was angry at the suggestion and wrote in his diary: "The Government should block any who would send convicts to such a place... The scenery is very beautiful and would take the pen of a poet to describe it." Although Claude was feeling no better, the brothers now set out on foot to probe the country South of the Bay, but for most of the way the weather was atrocious. They returned to the Bay wet through, wretched and bleeding, only to find the weather had forced the Ada to put out to sea. Claude and Charles were near to despair. Even after that things would not have been so bad if the weather had cleared - but it did not, and the Ada did not return until 24 August. Claude was taken on board the schooner and died within 48 hours. On a gravestone near the beach there is a simple inscription: Claude Morton Ollivier. The Ada went on as far as Milford before she turned and sailed back to Wellington. Thus ended in tragedy the Olliviers' vain search for suitable sheep country. They could not have forseen the West Coast goldrushes of two years later. The Olliviers failed in their quest, but they will be long remembered for their adventurous spirit, typical of the pioneers of the 1860s. They will also be remembered for their courage, their perseverance and above all, for their vision which prompted their courtship with danger." - extract from Jacksons Bay: Centennial History [The inscription really reads: Sacred TO THE MEMORY OF Claude Morton Ollivier WHO DIED IN JACKSONS BAY ON BOARD THE SCHOONER "ADA" 27th AUGUST 1862 Age 22 KMO] note: What about the 1000 pound reward for discovering a gold field? ________________________________________________________________________
