Mr. John Hardy

Mr. John Hardy , who served in the early days as a member of the Otago Provincial Council, was born in Middlesex, England, in 1821, and was brought up to the profession of a civil engineer. He came out to Port Chalmers in 1856, and settled in the Tokomairiro district, where he farmed for twelve years. He then removed to Dunedin, and practised his profession for about five years, and settled in Oamaru in 1872. Mr. Hardy served as a member of the Oamaru Borough Council, and took a keen interest in public matters generally. At his death, in 1882, he left eight sons and five daughters.
