Extract from "The Weekly Press", December 11, 1901, page 14.

In the month of November 1842, there arrived at Nelson, the ship Thomas Harrison, from London, which brought out Mr John Deans, Mr and Mrs Samuel Manson, and three children, the youngest of which was born at sea on 5th June, and is now Mrs John Smith of Teddington.

Manson was born in Scotland and emigrated to Canterbury in the ship Thomas Harrison in 1842 with John Deans (1820-1854). In 1843 he helped build the first house on the Canterbury Plains. This was built without nails as these had been left in Wellington by mistake.

He later leased from Maori a large block of land which he named Kainshill, at what is now known as Teddington, and farmed dairy cows.
