Stuart NEWALL + Georgina ROBERTS - Cambridge, Waikato

Stuart NEWALL (baptised as Stewart)
Stuart was born in the parish of Durrisdeer, Dumfriesshire, Scotland, on 9 May 1843, the son of Thomas Newall, a tailor, and his wife, Anne DALZIEL
he emigrated to Australia, and after a brief sojourn in Victoria arrived in Port Chalmers, New Zealand, in May of the same year. Newall spent a few months unsuccessfully seeking gold on the West Taieri diggings, then he enlisted in the 3rd Waikato Militia 2 December 1863 in Dunedin after goldmining in Otago. His Regiment Number was 1050. Stuart was appointed Colour Sergeant in July 1864 and Regimental Orderly Room Clerk in 1865, and in 1866 he became a member of the Alpha Waikato Lodge No.449, I.C. in Cambridge.
He acted as Post Master with the regiment - his house being used as the post office and for Mass for the Catholics on Sundays. The outlook was a fern-covered wilderness.
On the Cambridge rates assessment list for 1869-70 he paid 2 pence an acre on 51 acres - totalling eight shillings and sixpence.
On the disbandment of the 3rd Waikato Regiment, Sergeant Newall joined the Armed Constabulary. He took part in the West Coast campaign and Waitera on the East coast and in the Uruweras. He received his commission as Sub Inspector in June 1869. For about a year he was in charge of an Armed Constabulary party at the Ohinemuri goldfields making tracks and roads.
He married Georgina Roberts 12 March 1872 at Major Clare's residence in Cambridge (the younger sister of his close friend and fellow officer, John Roberts. Their happy marriage produced four daughters and a son before Georgina Newall's death on 22 June 1908.)
They had 5 children - Jessie Georgina died aged one year in 1879 and is buried at the Cambridge cemetery.
Stuart rose in the service, doing police work and exploring and supervising the construction of roads, until he became a Colonel.
He transferred to the Defence Force in 1883 and in 1900 took command of the 5th New Zealand Contingent, serving in South Africa. On his return he received the Distinguished Service Order, as recognition of his long and meritorious services to the colony.
