A very familiar and much respected figure on the Otago goldfields, in the person of Mr Geo Fache, passed away on Sunday evening last at Kawarau Falls Station where he had been residing with his daughter Mrs J P McBride. Deceased gentleman had been ailing for 6 months past and his extreme age told against his infirmities.  Though he received all the care that it was possible to give, deceased endured much suffering, and death came as a happy release. The late Mr Fache was born in the West End of London.  He came out to the Dominion nearly 55 years ago and was attracted to the Gabriels Gully and Dunstan gold rushes.  At Clyde Mr Fache founded the Dunstan Times in 1862 which he ably conducted until 1895.  He also carried on an auctioneering and commission agency as well as the paper.  After relinquishing the Times the deceased retained the latter business.  He eventually sold up and commenced along the same lines at Wellington.  After 3 years he went back to Clyde and again re-opened on a moderate scale.  It is now a year or so that the deceased retired into private life, living amongst the members of his family. The late Mr Fache identified himself with the township of Clyde assisting materially to furthur any object which went for advancement.  He moreover proved himself a popular townsman.  Deceased was a widower and leaves a family of 3 sons and 4 daughters.  The sons are Mr Geo Fache Commissioner of Pensions Wellington,  Mr Sydney Fache Officer in National Mortgage and Agency Co, Palmerston South, and Mr Bert Fache who is a member of one of the NZ Expeditionary Forces.  The daughters are Mrs Charles of Mataura,  Mrs J F McBride Kawarau Falls Station Frankton, Mrs A Mitchell Lammerburn Clutha, and Miss Fache post mistress at Waipiata Central Otago. Very general sympathy is expressed for the familyin their bereavement.  The remains will be interred in the Frankton Cemetery.

In the July 27, 1998, edition of Sports Illustrated, columnist Frank Deford lamented, "I am from a forgotten tribe. Not lost, you understand. That's romantic: lost. My tribe is simply forgotten. I am a Huguenot. A French Huguenot. Who remembers us?"

England gained thousands of French Protestant (Huguenot) exiles during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Escaping from religious repression at home, the refugees found England to be "the Refuge." The Protestant churches remaining in France, at least in the era of Louis XIV, were "under the cross." Bernard Cottret describes and analyzes this movement of immigration and settlement. First published in French in 1985, it now appears in English translation in an "enlarged version." French immigrants settled in London and many other cities. The central institutions of the refugee Huguenots were their churches. Four churches were most important: London, Canterbury, Norwich, and Southampton. These the author calls the "backbone of the Refuge" (10). Cottret's major concerns are the political and social aspects of the Huguenots rather than their doctrinal positions. The major sections of the book examine the sixteenth century, the "splendors and misfortunes" of the seventeenth century, and "stranger communities" and minorities with an emphasis on social history and an effort to shape a "typology" of minorities. There is also a section of documents. In the afterword, E. LeRoy Ladurie sets out an essay comparing sixteenth- and seventeenth-century French Protestants with English Roman Catholics of the same period. He gives special emphasis to the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 and the Glorious Revolution of 1688-89. As is always the case with immigrant churches, questions of identity are crucial. These churches were established as French congregations to serve the refugee French population. So long as the members felt themselves to be French, the congregations were cohesive, islands of Frenchness in an English ocean. For the second generation, the need for such a French community was not so obvious, and the offspring drifted away from the church community and merged into the English population around them. If it had not been for a continuing fresh immigration from France, the churches would probably have died out rather soon.

It was during this 16th century period of persecution that Bartholemew Hector, a Bible seller from Poictiers, came into the Waldensian Valleys to spread the news of God's gracious salvation as revealed in His precious Word. He would read passages from the Bible, and many of the peasants gladly heard him and bought copies of God's Word.Bartholemew was arrested and accused by the Roman priests, "You have been caught in the act of selling books that contain heresy. What do you say?""If the Bible is heresy to you, it is truth to me," replied Hector."But you use the Bible to deter people from going to Mass.""If the Bible deters men from going to Mass," Hector replied, "it is a proof that God disproves of it, and that the Mass is idolatry."Rather than getting into a long discussion with Bartholemew, the judge simply ordered him to retract."I have only spoken the truth," replied the bookseller. "Can I change truth as I would change a garment?"His judges kept him in prison for several months, hoping he would recant, as many times public executions were a detriment to their cause. As was said in the burning of Patrick Hamilton, "The smoke of these martyr-piles was infecting those on whom it blew." Bartholemew's constancy, however, left them no choice but to consign him to the flames.In many of the martyrdoms suffered in certain areas of Europe, there was one predominant way of putting men and women to death. For the English Reformers, it was generally the stake, while many of the Anabaptist brethren suffered "the third baptism" - drowning.In the Waldensian Valleys, however, the persecutors used a fiendish variety of tortures and deaths. They included having one's entrails torn from his living body (Hugo Chiamps), and in one case after the entrails were torn out, a fierce cat was thrust into the still living body for further torment (Peter Geymarali). Susan Michelini was bound hand and foot and left to perish of cold and hunger; Bartholemew Fache was gashed with sabres and had the wounds filled with quicklime and thus perished in agony;

'New Zealand obituaries', v 34, pp 137, 138
· New Zealand free lance, 19 December 1903, p 4d

In attempting to ascertain an arrival date for the family in New
Zealand, I tried to check for the earliest evidence of George Fache (Snr.)
residing in the country. A check of V Maxwell's Settlers to Otago pre
1861 was unsuccessful. There appears to be conflicting references to his
tenure as proprietor of the Dunstan times. According to the Cyclopedia
of New Zealand (Christchurch, 1902), v 4, p 721, the Dunstan times was
founded by G Fache in 1862. However, D R Harvey's Union list of
newspapers preserved in libraries, newspaper offices, local authority offices
and museums in New Zealand (Wellington, 1987)  lists the publishing
dates of the Dunstan news and Wakatip advertiser as 30 December 1862
-ca.1864 and the Dunstan times as February? 1864-24 May 1948. Also enclosed
is a photocopy of pages 199-200 from G H Scholefield's Newspapers in New
Zealand
(Wellington, 1958) referring to these two newspapers. These
references suggest he arrived some time before 1862 or 1864. The Otago
Settlers Museum
, PO Box 566, Dunedin holds indexes to Otago arrivals from
1848-1863 and may be able to help you further.

It is possible that George Fache's death certificate may note how many
years he had resided in New Zealand. The Registrar General's Births,
deaths and marriages indexes (Lower Hutt, 1986), includes a death
registered at Wakatipu for a George Fache in 1915 (folio no. 2457). You may
wish to apply for this certificate via the Births, deaths and marriages
website www.bdm.govt.nz .

There are several references to members of the Fache family in M J
Kelly's Births, marriages, deaths from the Dunstan times 1866-1900
(Auckland, 1991). These can be photocopied for you at a cost of fifty cents per
page.

Staff in the Manuscripts and Archives Section report that TAPUHI, the
online database of the Library's unpublished collections, has been
checked on your behalf. TAPUHI can be accessed at

to George Fache has been located among the Royal Forest and Bird
Protection Society of New Zealand Records (MS-Group-0206). The folder, Visit
to Australia - Mr Fache (MS-Papers-0444-684), contains material relating
to a visit to Australia by Mr Fache in 1946-1947 when he was a
vice-president of the Forest and Bird Society. This material deals with
Australia's regulations regarding the control of wildlife and does not contain
biographical material about Mr Fache. Access to this collection is

Joan Stevens <joanss@xtra.co.nz> wroteThe occupations of George Fache given in postal directories 1869-1900 for Clyde are listed as Dunstan Times Newspaper proprietor, Insurance Agent, Captain of the Fire Brigade, Sec. Dunstan Hospital Board, auctioneer and Sharebroker. Obviously a talented man. He died in Queenstown but we do not have Queenstown burial registers here. If you order his death certificate from

 Identity Services  Dept of Internal Affairs Wellington it should also give number of years in NZ .  From this you could get year of arrival and then possibly the ship he came on. 
There is no obituary for George in the Dunstan Times but if one has been written it is most likely in the Wakatipu Mail (Queenstown paper) or in the Otago Daily Times.   I did find this entry in The Dunstan Times of  23 May 1873

Brompton Road tube station is a disused station on the Piccadilly Line of the London Underground. It is located between Knightsbridge and South Kensington.

It was opened on 15 December 1906. Although it was convenient for both the Brompton Oratory and the Victoria and Albert Museum it saw little traffic, and by October 1909 some services passed it without stopping.

The station closed from 4 May 1926 due to the General Strike, and did not reopen until 4 October of that year with services only calling there on weekdays initially. Sunday services were finally restored on 2 January 1927; however as before, it was little used. When a new entrance was built onto Knightsbridge nearby, it sounded the death-knell for Brompton Road which finally closed on 30 July 1934.

Just prior to the outbreak of World War II the street level building together with liftshafts and certain passageways was sold to the War Office for use by the 1st Anti-Aircraft Division. During the war, it was the Royal Artillery's Anti-Aircraft Operations Room for central London. This use was discontinued in the 1950s. Although the station has been partly demolished, it continues to be owned by the Ministry of Defence above ground and London Underground below the surface.

Although the platforms have long since been removed, their original location can be seen from passing trains by the brick walls that stand in their place. The original tiling remains on the tunnel walls, though soot and dirt now obscures the name panels.

no mention of my great-great grandfathers paper "the dunstan
times" founded in 1862 in clyde...i am researching my family history
anything you could share would be awesome.... ps could you please
include his paper in your site
You should find the reference to Bartholomew Fache towards the middle of Chapter 5 "Persecutions and Martyrdoms."Tom Stewart"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand
before the Son of Man" (Luke 21:36).dear brother tom thanks for the quick reply but do you know which chapter this quote is at...I know its in book 16 but chapter or verse I don't.....mike  <

The sum of all that Wylie wrote of Bartholomew Fache's martyrdom at

I hope this helps.Tom Stewart"Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His Saints" (Psalm 116:15). I cannot access info on my family (Fache) in book 16 0f Wylie's writings. I am at library and only get 1 hour,which is not enough time to find info...

b. 1642 St-Eloi de Mesnelies,év. Amiens,Picardie Historically, France was born here when Clovis made Soissons the first capital of the Franks, in 486, and later Hugues Capet, elected king of France at Senlis, was crowned at Noyon in 987. This proud past made Picardy the first French region, not only for historical buildings and monuments but, also, the premier region for its Gothic cathedrals. Amiens has been specially honoured, by UNESCO, for its architectural heritage. From an area 30 kms North of Paris, close to the Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport, the southerm boundaries stretch eastwards towards Champagne and the Belgian border. Westwards, it extends to the English Channel. This ancient and hospitable region will not disappoint the visitor, with its choice of 4,000 hectares of lakeland, 1,200 kms of rivers, 70 kms of dunes, cliffs and luminous beaches, coastal marshes, forests and the bays at the river mouths of the Somme and the Authie

The city of Amiens was set up as a borough in 1117.
A first belfry was then erected, to protect the new local rights.
Following the example of
Amiens, many belfries were built during the 12th century in cities in the north of France
.Le Beffroi
They usually had a meeting room for the city aldermen, an archives room, a weapon store and a jail.
A watchman would stand in the upper part in order to warn the population of threats from without or from within. This watchman would also strike the hours.


In 1875,  Jules Verne , who showed an enormous interest in his new city of adoption, published a short story called "An ideal city, Amiens in the year 2000".

My greatgrandfather played for you guys back in the1890s can you tell me anything about him ...I'm doing a family history thanks mike milne
'New Zealand obituaries', v 34, pp 137, 138
· New Zealand free lance, 19 December 1903, p 4d

In attempting to ascertain an arrival date for the family in New
Zealand, I tried to check for the earliest evidence of George Fache (Snr.)
residing in the country. A check of V Maxwell's Settlers to Otago pre
1861 was unsuccessful. There appears to be conflicting references to his
tenure as proprietor of the Dunstan times. According to the Cyclopedia
of New Zealand (Christchurch, 1902), v 4, p 721, the Dunstan times was
founded by G Fache in 1862. However, D R Harvey's Union list of
newspapers preserved in libraries, newspaper offices, local authority offices
and museums in New Zealand (Wellington, 1987)  lists the publishing
dates of the Dunstan news and Wakatip advertiser as 30 December 1862
-ca.1864 and the Dunstan times as February? 1864-24 May 1948. Also enclosed
is a photocopy of pages 199-200 from G H Scholefield's Newspapers in New
Zealand (Wellington, 1958) referring to these two newspapers. These
references suggest he arrived some time before 1862 or 1864. The Otago
Settlers Museum, PO Box 566, Dunedin holds indexes to Otago arrivals from
1848-1863 and may be able to help you further.

It is possible that George Fache's death certificate may note how many
years he had resided in New Zealand. The Registrar General's Births,
deaths and marriages indexes (Lower Hutt, 1986), includes a death
registered at Wakatipu for a George Fache in 1915 (folio no. 2457). You may
wish to apply for this certificate via the Births, deaths and marriages
website www.bdm.govt.nz .

There are several references to members of the Fache family in M J
Kelly's Births, marriages, deaths from the Dunstan times 1866-1900
(Auckland, 1991). These can be photocopied for you at a cost of fifty cents per
page.

Dear Mike Milne,

Your email of 11 April 2005 asked about putting the Dunstan Times
(1864-1948) on our Papers Past site. Unfortunately there are no plans
to do this at the present. We hold a portion of the Times on microfilm
- 1890-1939 to be precise.
Dear Mike,
 
You can go and look at our family website : www.fache.be
 
Best regards,
Guy

Hi Mike
Have been somewhat slow in getting back to you, the price of working for my self, plenty of work too little time.  We got the photos of our trip through the South Isalnd and have just the one photo of OB School.  This taken outside of the Shackleton quarters on the outside edge of a brick circle which has the names of various sponsors to the school.  Quite a number I recognise, a few who are not with us any longer.  At the centre of the paved area is a grassed area presumably for assembly.  The dinning hall and activities sheds have all been rebuilt and I didn't recognise the place.  It underwent a major rebuild in the eearly 80s.  Behind the watch buildings is motel style accomodation, I think for the various assistants and staff who work at the centre, I couldn't find anyone who could answer my questions.  The whole operations considerably larger than the fairly modest operation I remember. Will keep in touch with any other info that I come across from time to time.  hope all is well with you and yours
 
Regards
Don Abbott

 Our newspaper was started in 1862 by George Fache, an original settler in New Zealand.It was named the"Dunstan Times", as Clyde was previously named Dunstan. The shop was located on Sunderland Street, Clyde. This journal was founded in 1862 by Mr. G. Fache, who conducted it till 1895. The premises were on freehold land, and consisted of a wooden building, which contained a Wharfedale printing press and a complete jobbing plant. The paper was a weekly publication of eight pages of seven columns, and had a wide circulation throughout Central Otago. I have been wading (drowning) through miles of NZ history to find info photos of my family "Fache" who became influential from the 1860's in Dunstan and then spread out. I have had little success. Can you share anything from your findings. mike

The Da Vinci Code is a novel written by American author Dan Brown and published in 2003 by Random House ... while I have no time to investigate 'everything' I feel this novel is potentially dangerous to weak believers in 2005, I note that a fictional character keeps popping up everywhere I turn.....Bezu Fache – a captain in the DPJF, the French criminal investigation police. Tough, canny, persistent, he is in charge of the investigation of Saunière's murder. From the message left by the dying curator, he is convinced the murderer is Robert Langdon, whom he summons to the Louvre in order to extract a confession. He is thwarted in his early attempt by Sophie Neveu, who knows Langdon to be innocent and surreptitiously notifies Langdon that he is in fact the prime suspect. He pursues Langdon doggedly throughout the book in the belief that letting him get away would be career suicide. "Bezu" is not a common French personal name, but "le Bezu" is the name of a castle in Rennes-le-Chateau with Cathar associations. When we first encounter Fache, he is compared to an ox; note that "Bezu" is an anagram (and the spoonerism) of zebu ("zébu" in French), a type of ox. On a related note, "fâché" is French for "angry", but "Fache" is also a reasonably common French surname.

Here I might add an entry whenever I make an update to my web site. Where appropriate, I'll include a link to the change. For example:

On this page I'll include a list of links to other web sites that I enjoy. I may also include an explanation of what I like about the site.

You should find the reference to Bartholomew Fache towards the middle
of Chapter 5 "Persecutions and Martyrdoms."
