    Notes 
    • Chamberlain, Giles Edinburgh, Flour-miller and Farmer, Starwood Farm, Upper Plain, Masterton. Born in 1838 at Northampton, the subject of this notice came to Port Nicholson at the age of four years, per ship 'London,' with his father, the late Mr. Thomas Chamberlain, who died shortly after settling in the Wairarapa in 1855. Mr. Chamberlain's farm at Upper Plain-eighty-one acres in area-was mostly bush when purchased. About thirty acres have been cleared and ploughed, the stumps of which are extracted by means of a traction engine-a five-foot root being taken out in this way in about twenty minutes. During the Maori troubles Mr. Chamberlain served in the Masterton Cavalry Volunteers for seven years, when the corps was disbanded. He has been ready to serve on public bodies, having acted as a member of the Masterton Road Board, and cheerfully giving his assistance to the local Agricultural and Pastoral Society. Mr. Chamberlain is a member of the firm of Chamberlain Bros., flour-millers. He was married to a daughter of Mr. Joseph Whatton in 1865, and has five daughters and two sons.
