Elizabeth Peck
b: 1855
d: 12 OCT 1943
Mrs. Elizabeth Minogue was born at the Hutt in 1855, and lived near Naenae Lane. She was the youngest of a family of fourteen, and her sister and her brother each had families of the same size. She recalls how her mother, Mrs. Daniel Peck, anticipating a Maori raid, packed her precious crockery in a box and buried it for safe keeping; and how, on another occasion, her mother, perched on a bed, nursed her during an "old man" flood.
The flood broke the window through which, during its headlong progress, a cow poked its head. Mrs. Minogue''s brother was clutching a box of piglets at the time, but the force of the water bore them through the window, and no doubt they shared the fate of much of the stock.

Marriage Details
1873/10366, Bride: Elizabeth Peck, Groom: Thomas Minogue

Evening Post 11 February 1896
A somewhat unusual charge of theft was made in the Magistrate''s Court this afternoon. Patrick L. Harnett, licensee of the Taita Hotel, was charged with having stolen a distress-warrant directed against his own goods, which had been issued from the Magistrate''s Court at Wellington at the suit of Thomas Minogue. It is alleged that Constable Cruickshank, of Lower Hutt, went to put a man in possession of Harnett''s premises in accordance with the distress warrant, and that while he was there the warrant mysteriously disappeared. Mr. Jelliooe appeared for the accused, and the case is proceeding as we go to press.
