Charles Henry Kettle
Charles Henry Kettle (1820-1862) was born at Sandwich, Kent, and emigrated to New Zealand in 1840 on the Oriental. He joined Mein Smith's survey staff and for several years was engaged in explorations and surveys in Porirua, Port Nicholson, and Upper Hutt. After returning to England for three years, Kettle was at the head of a staff surveying Otago for the New Edinburgh scheme, and laid out the future city of Dunedin. He settled in the Kaihiku ranges, and after a year in the House of Representatives, he died, still a young man.
