Mr. Thomas Newland
Mr. Thomas Newland, Manager of the Manure Department of the Wellington Meat Export Company's Works, was born in London in 1854. Arriving in New Zealand, per ship “Avalanche,” in 1875, he entered into business as a glue and oil manufacturer at Johnsonville, his firm being Newland and Pomfrey. After several years he sold his interest to his partner and removed to Napier, where he commenced business on his own account. Three years later Mr. Newland sold out to the North British and Hawkes Bay Freezing Company, remaining as manager of the department for twelve months. In 1892 he was appointed to the position he now holds.
