GOOD, Thomas 1823–1907

Born Aston Court, Worcestershire, England; arrived New Zealand 1845 with an uncle and took up land at Omata, Taranaki. He played a leading part in the Taranaki wars, designed and built the Omata Stockade, as a Captain of the Bush Rangers received a grant of land at Urenui where he farmed for 15 years. About 1875 moved to Oeo, and in 1901 to Hawera, where he was when he died. The watercolours he made during the war are of great historical interest: two illustrations in C. F. Hursthouse's Account of the Settlement of New Plymouth pub. 1849 are after sketches by Good. Represented: Hocken.
