Abstract

Truby King’s father, English-born and Oxford University-educated Thomas King (1821-1893) settled in New Plymouth in 1841, under the New Zealand Company banner. His early career in banking - first manager of the Bank of New Zealand (BNZ) in New Plymouth - had an influence on his son Truby. Indeed, young Truby was employed at various branches of the BNZ (New Plymouth; Auckland; Wellington) before deciding to replace finance for medicine. Thomas King also had farming interests in the area and figured prominently as a politician in the Grey and Bell governments between 1850 and 1860.
