Abstract

In 1846 Thomas King married London-born Mary Chilman, the daughter of the New Plymouth settler Richard Chilman. Mary developed tuberculous and had a prominent lateral curvature of the spine. Despite these setbacks, the couple had seven children: Mary (1848); Henry (1850); Sara (1852); Newton (1856); Frederic Truby (1858); Herbert Edward (1860); and Francis Worsley (1862). After a short residency in Nelson, because of the Maori Land Wars, the family returned to Taranaki in 1861. Their old homestead at Mangorei was destroyed, so the family moved into this large house near the corner of Dawson and Vivian Street, New Plymouth. It was demolished about 1922.
