Samuel Clarkson - Importer

Description

Born in the parish of Greenwich, Kent, Samuel Clarkson's (1836-1895) father was a builder by trade. He worked on a number of significant projects before his early death in 1855. Samuel followed his father's trade, working as a carpenter and contractor from Cashel Street, Christchurch. His first home was at 305 Cashel Street and he later built a two storey home at 137 Ollivier's Road. The house was still standing in 1950. In 1857 Samuel Clarkson married a Miss Lodge, who was said to have been the first European child born in Wellington.

After several years he went out of the building-contracting business, and opened a wholesale builder's merchant's warehouse in St Asaph Street, near Montreal Street. Cement was a speciality, and at this address the Trade Tokens which bear his name were issued in 1875.
