NOTE Mr John Hislop who for nearly forty years conducted business as a. watchmaker and jeweller at 74 Princes Street, Dunedin, was a well known colonist. As a man of business he was a credit to his guild, and all the branches of his trade were carried on with enlightened intelligence. The appliances used by him were of the best design and material, and he employed specially qualified persons in connection with cleaning and repairing watches and the manufacture of all kinds of jewellery. It used to be said that Queen Victoria never accepted presents from private individuals. Nevertheless, on the 13th of August, 1886, Mr. Hislop forwarded to her Majesty a scent bottle and paper-knife, together with a letter begging their acceptance. The sequel to this was that, afterwards, Mr. Hislop kept on his shop counter an appropriately framed letter written by Her Majesty's command, and dated the 26th of September, 1886, acknowledging the receipt of Mr. Hislop's letter and thanking him for his very beautiful gifts, for which the Queen expressed great admiration. Mr. Hislop was born in Liverpool in 1832, and served his apprenticeship partly in Scotland and partly in England. He came of a Greenock family, and his uncle, Mr. John Hislop, was a publisher of that place. Mr. Hislop left the Old Country for Australia in 1851 and entered into business at Bendigo, where he continued for most of his time in the sister colony, until attracted by the Otago gold “rush” in 1862, when he settled in Dredin and established his business. He was for several years a member of the North East Valley borough council and also held a seat on the Otago harbour board. As a Freemason he was attached to Lodge Otago Kilwinning, S.C., and had taken the Royal Arch and Knight Templar degrees. Mr. Hislop was married in 1873, and had in all twelve children—six sons and six daughters. He died in his shop, suddenly, on the 19th of October, 1900.

NZ Herald, 26 July 1886 STREATER-CLAPPERTON - At the residence of the bride's brother, View Avenue, Mount Eden, on the 23rd instant, by the Rev G. B. Munro, Roland Streater of London, to Jessie, daughter of the late William Clapperton, Consulting Engineer, Glasgow, Scotland
Auckland Star, 17 Sep 1906 DEATH of CAPTAIN STREATER Capt. Roland Streater, who with two others was injured through the collapse of a derrick on board the steamer Ayrshire some four weeks ago, died at his residence in Nelson-street at six o'clock last Saturday evening. Captain Streater's spine was badly injured and, paralysis having set in, his case was considered almost hopeless from the outset. A born sailor, he went to his first ship at the age of 16 years, trading to the Black Sea and the Far East. He joined the Shaw-Savill Co in the early eighties and it was not long before he was promoted to the rank of captain, being appointed to the command of the sailing ship 'Lutterworth' in 1887. In 1890 he was transferred to the ship 'Eutrope' and five years later he came out to new Zealand as chief officer of the s.s. 'Aotea'. Settling down in Auckland, he became a partner in the firm of Nearing and Co., stevedores. He took keen interest in all aquatic sport and was a member of the New Zealand Power Boat Association and owned the launch 'Seaford'. His wife, three sisters and a brother survive him. His sisters reside in England and the brother in Constantinople. The flags of the boats in port and the various shipping offices are lowered to half-mast as a mark of respect to his memory ..
