Thanks for that Christine, My interests are either Inglewood or Ngaere in that time frame. But have saved what you have mentioned for further research.

Hi Jack,

I don't know whether the Sawmill had an actual name. The family name was SMALL. What I know is that they lived near Brightwater in Nelson. Around 1875 they moved north to Halcombe and sometime after 1882 moved to Midhurst where they had their Sawmill. I would have to go back and check my notes but I believe that my Great Grandfather continued to run the sawmill after his father's death until about 1912. At one stage I believe that the business was run under the name of SMALL & SCHERER.

Just to jump in on the debate. My Great, Great Grandfather was a Sawyer.
His family settled in Nelson when he was fifteen and the family later moved
to Taranaki where they owned their own sawmill. On his intention to marry
in 1860 his occupation is listed as Sawyer however he is recorded as being a
farmer on the actual church marriage certificate.
