NOTES

* Thomas Maxwell Henderson written 1993 by Anthony G. Flute, entitled 'Pioneers in a new Colony'. An extract follows but go to the link for more ...
- In the year 1840, the London and Provincial newspapers carried large advertisements for tradesmen and women to emigrate and settle the new fledgeling colony of the British Empire called New Zealand.
Thomas Maxwell Henderson, a blacksmith by trade, met his future wife and brother-in-laws, Henry and John Macfarlane in Perth. He was married to Catherine Macfarlane in 1834 and had a son, born in July,1839.

* After a family conference, Thomas and Catherine, John and Henry Macfarlane and their sister Ann Taylor and her husband, were to join the Brigatine LONDON at London dockyards on the 10th August, 1840, for the long and arduous voyage of 121 days to the other side of the world. The journey was to take until the 12th December to reach Port Nicholson, Wellington. Sickness on board during the voyage was unavoidable in the cramped conditions and salty basic diet. A bad bout of dysentry spread through the passengers.

* Catherine's 15 month old child became sick and the ships surgeon, Ralph Johnson, was unable to save him. He died on the 20th September and was buried at sea. This was a bitter blow to the family beginning their new adventure. The Henderson and Macfarlane families headed north for Auckland, arriving just two months before the land sales of 1841. Both families were fortunate to have capital which they had brought with them.

* The township was to be split into one acre lots, selling for £595 each.
Early in 1842, Thomas and Henry formed a partnership and bought a block of land from Dudley Sinclair. On this they built the Commercial Hotel at a cost of £2000, a very large sum of money in those days. The hotel was a good investment, catering for the numbers of immigrants coming into the colony to settle and begin a new life.
The partners also began selling merchandise, ships chandlery and provisions. In 1843 they offered bricks for sale at £1/17/- a thousand and firewood at 4/- a ton. Catherine and Thomas had another son in 1841 called George and a second son in 1843 named Henry William. Thomas Henderson became a driving force in the company of Henderson & Macfarlane and decided to buy a schooner he had seen advertised in Auckland harbour named the LUCIDAN. She became a regular trader to the Bay of Islands in the north of New Zealand

I'm descended from Alexander McIntosh and Margaret MacFarlane through their daughter Margaret McIntosh 1835-1906 and William Henderson who drowned at sea. No birth or death has ever been found for him. He must have died about 1860 as his widow remarried as a spinster in 1863. I guess she couldn't wait seven years for him to be declared dead. Have looked at the 'Peck of Taita site but don't know why the McIntoshes are there and there are some mistakes. Have been researching the MacFarlane and Henderson families, that is the relations of Thomas Maxwell Henderson 30/12/1810-1886. Some relatives have decided they have found William Henderson in the 1841 Scottish Census but can't tell me why he is the right one. As my grandmother was the last of 10 sibling's, grandchildren of William and Margaret, she didn't know what happened to the older ones
