About William Win
Mr. WILLIAM WYNN was one of the first settlers in the Dovedale district, Nelson. He was born in Pembrokeshire, Wales, in 1829, and came out to Nelson in 1842. The family resided there for a time; then they went to Stoke, and finally took up their residence at Dovedale in 1863. There Mr. Wynn transformed a piece of bush land into a profitable property, and left his widow and eleven children well provided for at the time of his death, which occurred on the 14th of September, 1898. For over thirty years Mr. Wynn was a member of the local school committee, and he was also a member of the Nelson Education Board for several years. His widow came to New Zealand by the ship “Charles Forbes,” and they were married in 1852.
