Colonist 25 August 1919
The death of Mrs. Charles. Saywell, a highly respected resident of Richmond, occurred at her residence, Upper Queen street, on Thursday, August 21st. Her decrease will be deeply regretted by a large circle of friends, both old and young. For some years owing to advancing age, Mrs. Saywell has led a very retired life, but as long as her health permitted she was known for her deeds of kindly sympathy and generosity. She took a deep interest in the progress of the district, and always supported every forward movement, and her home was noted for its hospitality. Mrs. Saywell''s childhood was most eventful and interesting, She arrived in Port Nicholson in the Bolton, in 1840, with her parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Avery, who were among the pioneer settlers of Wellington. The family disemarked on the beach at Petone before the site of the present city of Wellington was fixed. Mrs. Saywell''s girlhood was spent in the Hutt Valley, and the heavy floods, the severe earthquakes, the vicissitudes of the early settlers and their adventures with the Maoris, amde a deep impression on her retentive memory, forming a store of material which was ever of great interest to her younger friends. On her marriage, Mrs. Saywell settled in Richmond, where she had lived ever since, a period of nearly 65 years. Mr. Saywell predeceased her several years. The funeral left her late residence on Saturday. A short service was held in the Richmond Methodist Church, at which the Rev. W. Wills gave an impressive address, in which he referred to Mrs. Saywell''s consistent Christian character and to her devotion to her church. The remains were interred in the Ricmond Cemetery, a representative gathering of friends from the surrounding district being present. Beautiful floral emblems showed the affection and respect in which she was held. Mrs. Saywell leave a large number of relatives in various parts of New Zealand, among whom are Mrs. G. Macmahon (Stoke), Mrs. Emerson (Waimea street) and Mr. J. S. Emerson (Sling Camp)
