Martin James Eyles1

M, b. 23 April 1901, d. 1984
  • Martin James Eyles was born on 23 April 1901 in New Zealand.1,2,3
  • He was the son of Charles Eyles and Louissa Margrater La Frentz.1
  • On 26 June 1918 the Dominion newspaper reported:-"MAGISTRATE'S COURT - ASSAULT ,UPON A GIRL
    YOUTH ADMITTED TO PROBATION. Mr. F. V. Frazer, S.M, heard the police cases in the Magistrate's Court yesterday. A charge of having assaulted a girl 12 years of age, on June 15, was alleged against a youthful sailor named Martin James Eyles, for whom Mr. .H. F. O'Leary appeared. Inspector Mursack, who prosecuted, in outlining the case, stated that the girl was staying at a boarding house in Hopper Street, and the young man was also living there at the time. The girl slept on a couch in the dining room, and on the night of the information, between 10 and 11 o'clock, she heard someone moving about the room. A few minutes later she was seized by the shoulders, upon which she screamed, and the man, who was alleged to be accused, decamped. It was afterwards found that the accused was not in his room, (but his boots and socks were there. About 1 o'clock in the morning accused was noticed to creep back to the house, and when questioned as to his actions, said, "What are you going to charge me with?" He made a second statement to the effect that he had felt uneasy during the night, and had gone down to the Basin Reserve. Inspector Mursack added that accused was seen returning to the house, but in a different direction from the Basin Reserve. After evidence had been heard in support of the charge accused declined to go into the witness box, but his counsel said it was quite evident someone took hold of the girl. Probably it was the youth, who was under the influence of liquor. His Worship said the evidence was so clear that only most complete explanation from the accused could have been accepted. Had accused been a grown man he would have regarded the offence as a very serious one, but he did not wish to send a boy of 17 to prison. There had been no attempt to interfere further with the girl, so he would deal leniently with the accused. "I hope I am not taking a serious risk with you," remarked His Worship to accused, "but you will be convicted and admitted to probation for two years." An order was also made prohibiting the accused from touching intoxicating liquor for a period of two years.4 "
  • On 29 December 1944 Martin Swain allegedly shot two people. The Auckland Star reported on 9 February 1945 "NAPIER SHOOTING-CHARGE OF MURDER-FURTHER EVIDENCE HEARD P.A. NAPIER, this day. Happenings in the Caledonian Hotel, Napier, and in the roadway in its vicinity on the afternoon of December 29 during which two persons were killed and three persons were seriously injured following the discharge of an automatic pistol, were further described before Mr. J. Miller, S.M., to-day, when the hearing was continued of the charges against Martin James Eyles, aged 45, seaman and waterside worker. Eyles was charged on two separate accounts of murdering Charles Edmund Swain, barman-porter at the Caledonian Hotel, and John Barry Bertram Howe, schoolboy, who was cycling near the hotel when he was shot. Three charges of attempted murder were laid, one concerning Thomas Rogers, who was in the bar of the hotel, and the other two concerning Detective-Sergeant Duncan McKenzie and Detective Andrew Reid, members of a police party, who were shot at while in a motorcar. The remaining two charges were those in which accused was charged with discharging a German Luger automatic pistol loaded with destructive materials with intent to do grievous bodily harm to Thelma Winnie Alcock, a pedestrian, who was wounded near the post office, and Henry James Kearney, an elderly journalist, who was wounded while sitting in the lounge of the hotel. The case for the Crown was conducted by Mr. L. W. Willis, Crown prosecutor, and Mr. H. W. Dowling appeared for accused. Bullet in Shopping Bag Inez Norah Kennedy, married woman, gave evidence concerning damage to a handbag and shopping bag which she was carrying in the street outside the post office on the afternoon of the shooting. A bullet was found the next day in the shopping bag. This she handed to the police.
    Cross-examined by Mr. Dowling witness said there was no possible reason she knew of why the accused should shoot at her.
    Henry Edgsworth Seed, record clerk, employed by the Land and Survey Department, said that on hearing three reports he looked out of a small window with a view of Hastings Street. Witness saw a man standing in the. centre of the footpath. He was pointing something at a boy riding a bicycle slowly along the road. The man lowered what he was handling and seemed to adjust some mechanism. Then he raised what afterwards proved to be a gun, took aim and levelled it at the boy. A shot rang out as the boy was turning into Dickens Street, and he seemed to utter a sharp cry. The boy fell off the bicycle just at the corner.
    A further eye witness of the shooting, Herbert Leonard Waters, sign writer, said that the boy turned round to look -at the man while he was loading. The man aimed at the boy, but the pistol did not go off. He seemed to fool around with the pistol and pointed it at the boy again. He heard a shot fired and saw the boy when he fell. The man walked away quietly. Witness followed the crowd and from a corner he could see the men. The man pointed the pistol two or three times towards the crowd. Stolen Pistol Identified Joseph Jeffares, excavator driver, identified a pistol, produced, which he registered in 1921. During the 1931 earthquake it and. 50 rounds of ammunition were stolen from his home, and he had not seen it until the police showed it to him last month.
    Evidence of having known accused for 15 to 20 years was given by James Forne, watersider. He was with accused in the Caledonian Hotel bar on the morning of December 29. Accused was known on the Napier waterfront as "Bromide" Eyles, because of his habit of taking bromide as a nerve steadier after being ill. Accused was in the habit of taking liquor every day, and witness had quite often seen him drunk. He then became erratic, irrational and domineering. A barman in the Caledonian Hotel, Philip Aubrey McCabe, said accused visited the bar nearly every morning, having about six or eight beers, usually alone. On the afternoon of the shooting Eyles was in the bar, with Rogers standing nearby, when Swain came in. Swain said: "Good afternoon, Mr. Eyles." Eyles then drew a pistol from his coat and shot Swain.
    Accused then "fanned" the pistol around the bar, pointing it at witness, who appealed to accused not to shoot. Eyles left the bar and went into the foyer, and witness heard another shot. There was no argument in the bar while Eyles was there, and there appeared to be no reason for the shooting. Other witnesses who were in the bar and the hotel at the time gave similar evidence. Under cross examination, William John Kyle, licensee of the Caledonian Hotel, said Swain and accused were friends. Witness believed Eyles was in the habit of lending Swain money to see him over to pay day. Swain had been ill recently, and Eyles had visited him in his room, taking him some fruit. Jack Frederick Neill, contractor, of Port Ahuriri, stated he was in the hotel on the afternoon of December 29. There were three men in the bar and one had a pistol in his hand. He fired the pistol at a man in a white coat. Mr. Willis: What did you do then? Witness: I took off. Witness outlined how he went into the post office and heard further shots. He came out of the post office and saw a boy lying in the street. He also saw the man with the revolver fire shots up Hastings Street. To Mr. Dowling, witness stated that it appeared that the man was not firing at anybody in particular just firing wildly.
    Struck by Bullets Thomas Rogers, retired, of Napier, stated that on Friday, December 29, he went into the public bar of the hotel shortly after 3 p.m.. The accused, whom witness knew fairly well, was in the bar, and witness was standing about eight feet on the accused's right. Swain entered the bar and stood between witness and the accused. Swain put a tray on to the bar and then "things happened." Witness said he felt something on his hand. He looked and saw Eyles pointing a pistol at Swain. A bullet which went through Swain hit witness in the hand and dropped at his feet Nothing happened in the bar to provoke Eyles. Accused did not appear intoxicated. Witness left the bar, and as he left he felt a shot in his arm and heard a report.
    Mr. Dowling: You and Eyles never had any rows? There was no reason why he should have shot you?
    Witness: No; no reason whatever"

    The Evening Post reported on 25 February 1943 -
    " TRIAL OF EYLES
    QUESTION OF LIQUOR
    THE ACCUSED'S CONDITION P.A. NAPIER, February 20

    The Crown case against Martin James Eyles, who is facing a double murder charge, was almost completed by the time the Court adjourned this evening. Mr. Justice Finlay is presiding. Mr. L. W. Willis and Mr. H. C. Sproule are appearing for the Crown and Mr. H. W. Dowling for the accused.
    Thomas Rogers, pensioner, aged 64, stated that in the bar Eyles presented a pistol and fired at Swain, the bullet passing through Swain's body and striking witness harmlessly on the arm before falling at his feet. Witness made a rapid exit, and Swain, who was just behind him, staggered and fell. Witness was leaving the hotel entrance when he was hit in the arm and wounded.
    Mr. Dowling: Had anything happened to give you reason to believe that he had any ill-feeling against you?— No.
    He had no reason for shooting you? —No.
    Eyles appeared to you in the bar to be sober?— Yes, reasonably so. I have seen him once or twice over the odds, but not on that occasion.
    Allen Berry, the accused's doctor, said that if a man was a consistently heavy drinker over a number of years he would suffer degeneration of the brain. He believed that a man complaining of seeing bright, flashing lights in the head, loss of memory, and hearing voices and footsteps when there were none, was suffering from alcoholic amnesia, which was forgetfulness over a period of time of what had happened. Such a person would do and say things of which afterwards he had no recollection. There were occasions known as alcoholic psychosis, meaning abnormality of conduct, and he could imagine anything. The witness said that a man suffering from alcoholic psychosis would be morally and legally responsible for what he was doing, because he could have an understanding of what was right and wrong. That would persist up to a point where he was suffering from delusions where he could be said to be suffering from temporary insanity. A man could shoot and then forget it, but witness could not say if, being in a state of amnesia, a man could appreciate the difference between right and wrong. To a question by Mr. Dowling, Senior Sergeant F. Forsythe said he believed Eyles when arrested was suffering from the effects of alcohol and was in a dazed condition in his cell. Witness noticed that Elyse’s eyes were glassy on the way to the police station. Eyles never spoke in a morose condition. POLICE EVIDENCE. Constable Ewen Rippin, who participated in the arrest of accused, said that when in the ambulance going to hospital Eyles said: "I had better be careful what I say. You'll remember and use it as evidence." The accused asked for a drink of water at the hospital, drinking four mugs of water. He then turned, and after walking a few steps, fell to the floor. The accused had a glassy look in the eyes, but witness could not say if he were unconscious. Constable Brian Nathan, who also assisted in the arrest, confirmed that accused's eyes were noticeably glazed Cross examined, he said accused appeared mentally fogged Mr. Dowling: What do you mean by that expression? Witness: He gave the impression that his mental faculties were impaired by over-indulgence in alcohol. James Dewar Hunter, superintendent of the Pokanui Mental Hospital said he examined the accused seven weeks after his arrest. He found the accused frank and co-operative in answering questions. In a report handed in by the witness the accused stated that from 1931-32 on he had had a feeling when walking behind people that he would like to jump on them and squeeze them. There were frequent references to drinking practices, after which he had woke up and found bruises received in brawls of which he had no recollection. The accused lent and borrowed money of which he had no recollection. From 1933 to 1938 he was boiling up concoctions of weeds from a garden. In 1943, he alleged, he had attempted suicide. He alleged that he also made liquor from fermented tomato jam. He complained of sleeplessness and severe headaches, and that he could not think clearly On December 20, between 2 am and 6 am., he had several drinks of rum . He recollected nothing between the hours of 11am and 5pm of that day. The witness said that he had based his opinions of the accused largely on what the accused had told him.
    Mr Willis. Was it possible that on this day he could do what he did and afterwards forget?
    Witness: With alcoholics all things are possible.
    The hearing will be continued tomorrow".
    Then in The Auckland Star on 23 February 1945 " NAPIER SHOOTING-CHARGES AGAINST EYLES CONSIDERATION DEFERRED P.A. NAPIER, this day. Three charges of attempted murder and two of discharging firearms with intent to do grievous bodily harm against Martin James Eyles, seaman and watersider. aged 45, who were sentenced earlier this week to life imprisonment on two counts of murder, have been deferred by Mr. Justice Finlay for consideration at the next session of the Supreme Court in Napier."5,6,7

Grave of Mary Northgate (nee Eyels), Nelson, South Island, New Zealand.
  • Mary Eyles was born on 30 October 1818 in Lasham, Hampshire, England.1
  • She was the daughter of Daniel Eyles and Jane Primmer.
  • Mary Eyles was baptized on 22 November 1818 in Lasham, Hampshire, England.
  • She immigrated on 24 September 1841 to Nelson, South Island, New Zealand, with Daniel Eyles and Jane Primmer. The Eyles family - Daniel 44, an agricultural labourer, Jane 44, Mary 23, a servant, William 18, and agricultural labourer, Jane 16 a servant, John 11, Benjamin 10, Ann 13 and Ezra 2 left from London on the Mary Ann, captained by Bolton arriving at Nelson NZ on 5 February 1842. They were part of the second fleet of ships commissioned by The New Zealand Company to bring settlers to the area around Nelson on the South Island of New Zealand. Their daughter Amelia's husband Thomas Cresswell was on the Whitby, part of the first fleet sent to settle Nelson. Ezra Eyles died on the voyage. The family encountered very hard conditions. They lived in a hut made of Manuka and clay while other families endured in houses consisting of four poles and a fern leaf roof. According to family hearsay one poor man was brought to the Eyles home and laid on the mud floor because his house was not weather proof. It is also said that Jane and her daughter Ann collected flat stones from the river, and using some clay Daniel had collected to plug holes in the wall, build an "oven around the wall and put in what they called on ship a boulli tin for a flue". That was the first chimney. Conditions were wet for the first few months and sickness was rife. Then when the New Zealand Company went broke food was scarce. Over a five week period they only had one loaf of bread in the house and could not purchase tea and sugar. If not for the potatoes they would have starved and Daniel found it difficult to find work. Anne had waited in line for more than an hour sometimes and then missed out at the bakehouse. The family didn't own the land but were squatters.
    The entry in the Embarkation Register for the family is Eyles, Daniel (wife Jane), agric labourer, 44; 3 boys 11,10,3; 1 girl 13. Mary servant 23; William agric labourer 18; Jane servant 16. Their address on the application register was Lasham. The family was recommended by a M Crowley.1,2,3,4

William Eyles

M, b. 6 February 1823, d. 31 July 1875
  • William Eyles was born on 6 February 1823 in Lasham, Hampshire, England.1
  • He was the son of Daniel Eyles and Jane Primmer.
  • William Eyles was christened on 16 March 1823 in Lasham, Hampshire, England.1
  • He immigrated on 24 September 1841 to Nelson, South Island, New Zealand, with Daniel Eyles and Jane Primmer. The Eyles family - Daniel 44, an agricultural labourer, Jane 44, Mary 23, a servant, William 18, and agricultural labourer, Jane 16 a servant, John 11, Benjamin 10, Ann 13 and Ezra 2 left from London on the Mary Ann, captained by Bolton arriving at Nelson NZ on 5 February 1842. They were part of the second fleet of ships commissioned by The New Zealand Company to bring settlers to the area around Nelson on the South Island of New Zealand. Their daughter Amelia's husband Thomas Cresswell was on the Whitby, part of the first fleet sent to settle Nelson. Ezra Eyles died on the voyage. The family encountered very hard conditions. They lived in a hut made of Manuka and clay while other families endured in houses consisting of four poles and a fern leaf roof. According to family hearsay one poor man was brought to the Eyles home and laid on the mud floor because his house was not weather proof. It is also said that Jane and her daughter Ann collected flat stones from the river, and using some clay Daniel had collected to plug holes in the wall, build an "oven around the wall and put in what they called on ship a boulli tin for a flue". That was the first chimney. Conditions were wet for the first few months and sickness was rife. Then when the New Zealand Company went broke food was scarce. Over a five week period they only had one loaf of bread in the house and could not purchase tea and sugar. If not for the potatoes they would have starved and Daniel found it difficult to find work. Anne had waited in line for more than an hour sometimes and then missed out at the bakehouse. The family didn't own the land but were squatters.
    The entry in the Embarkation Register for the family is Eyles, Daniel (wife Jane), agric labourer, 44; 3 boys 11,10,3; 1 girl 13. Mary servant 23; William agric labourer 18; Jane servant 16. Their address on the application register was Lasham. The family was recommended by a M Crowley.1,2,3,4

  • On 1 July 1854 William Eyles and brother Charles appeared on the Electoral Roll list for Waimae East, published in the Nelson Examiner and New Zealand Chronicle on 1 July 1854.5
  • In 1864 William Eyles and Amelia Catherine Thorn lived in Waimea, New Zealand. Their son William Daniel aged 1 year and 10 months drowned in the creek at Waimae South on 5 January that year. The family lived on the corner of Hill Street and Champion Road.1
  • William Eyles was a witness at the inquest into the death of his son, William Daniel Eyles on 3 January 1870 in Star and Garter Hotel, Richmond. The Colonist newspaper reported:- " A Coroner's Inquest was held at the Star and Garter at Richmond on Wednesday last, to enquire into the cause of the death of a child named William Daniel Eyles, aged one year and ten months, son of Mr. Wm.

B. Williamson, Henry Hammond, and John Holdaway.
    Mr. Eyles, the father of the child, deposed that he last saw deceased about four o'clock on Tuesday afternoon, playing with the other children in front of the barn, in the rear of the house. He (witness) went into the barn, and did not again see him alive. About fifteen or twenty minutes afterwards he was missed, and it was supposed he had followed his brother, who went to bring in the cows. A few minutes after this, the child was brought in by Mrs. Eyles and the daughter. He was dead, and his clothes were all wet. His daughter told him she had taken the child out of the creek which runs about sixty yards to the rear of witness's house. The water is about eighteen inches deep at the spot where his body was found. Deceased was in the habit of playing about the place. There is a foot-bridge consisting of two planks across the creek at the spot where his body was discovered. Witness had before seen him cross the bridge, but he was not allowed to do so alone if it was known."7
