SLOSS marriages New Zealand 1857 - 1931

Journal by ngairedith

the known SLOSS marriages in New zealand 1857 - 1931:

* John SLOSS was one of the early settlers of Tokoroa, South Waikato
- taken from Street names in Tokoroa
... Tokoroa is one of the most recent towns in New Zealand history. It first developed around 1948, as a residential satellite for the then proposed new timber mill, which was to be called Kinleith.
* There had been a very small farming community in the Tokoroa/Kinleith area from the early twenties, but the "bush sickness" caused by the cobalt deficiency had resulted in little early successful farming activity. Trees however grew satisfactorily.
* Forestry plantations from 1925 (especially, just prior to and during the depression) planted by New Zealand Perpetual Forests and later in 1935 by New Zealand Forest Products (now Carter Holt Harvey) resulted in a timber processing plant being required to use these trees. To achieve this Kinleith and Tokoroa developed.
* Kinleith was named by David Henry, the then director of the mill, in recognition of the Kinleith Paper Mill on the waters of Leith near the Pentland Hills and Edinburgh in Scotland.
* From 1950 onwards, when mill construction commenced and New Zealand Forest Products started employing forest felling gangs and factory workers, the community of Tokoroa swelled rapidly. Subdivisions were undertaken by the company and later, in 1960 supported by private industry and the then Matamata County. The involvement of the Matamata County in these subdivisions was interesting. Local authorities did not normally engage in this activity. However, lack of housing forced action on their part, and 28 transit houses were subsequently built on three substantial subdivisions (the Kruse, Hartley and Hicks Block) which now occupy approximately one quarter of the present residential area. The county was also involved in lesser subdivisions such as the Sminia Block.
* Each subdivider added a new flavour to the street names used, with the result that different parts can still be identified simply by looking at these names.

* there is a Sloss Rd in Tokoroa named after John (runs east from Main Rd (SH1)
