    LORRIGAN family:
    Daniel and Jane (Walsh) LORRIGAN and their family of nine children aged between 25 and 9 years of age were from Ballyslough County Limerick in Ireland. When they settled in Auckland this family of eleven lived in a raupo 'house' with an earthen floor, crude furniture, beds of dry fern, and an open fire for cooking. The water came from a gully nearby, and town was over a mile away on a clay track through thick scrub. The Auckland newspaper 'Southern Cross' of 22 April 1843 reported that the Government of the day was callous in that it had left more than 200 passengers for four days after their arrival in cold comfortless houses after a voyage of "four or five months" and with "not a shilling of money". The Lorrigan family took an active part in the activities of the young town of Auckland. Patrick became a tavern keeper, and was granted a licence for the Crown and Anchor Inn in Queen Street West, John Lorrigan contributed his labour to help build the Auckland Temperance Hall in September 1843, and the men of this family were among the helpers who rolled stones from the quarry at Mount Eden down to the site where St Patrick's Cathedral was being built in 1846-1848. Daniel was an Auckland Timber Merchant in Queen Street in the 1850's. William and Laurence later owned their own farms. Mary and John married other passengers from the 'Westminster' - Mary m Hans Christopher, and John m Ann Lundon. Daniel Lorrigan senior later farmed at Paupaterie near One Tree Hill, and his death was reported in "The New Zealander" of 1 January 1853 as follows: "Died: In consequence of a fall from his horse on Tuesday 27th inst, in the 62nd year of his age, Mr Daniel Lorrigan of Auckland, and late of Ballyslough of County Limerick". His wife Jane died on 14 June 1864, and her death was reported in "The Daily Southern Cross" 15 June 1864 as ..."relict of the late D Lorigan of Auckland".
