About Thomas Maxwell Henderson

Thomas Maxwell Henderson (1810 – 27 June 1886) was a New Zealand politician. He was one of the earliest settlers in Auckland, having migrated from Scotland, with his family and in-laws, in 1840. He was a significant entrepreneur, and the Auckland suburb of Henderson bears his name.

Lisa Truttman has prepared an excellent list of documents and newspaper items about Henderson's Mill, the timber industry and the area, She has also written a number of blogs about the area. Just go to Timespanner.

Many on-line family trees list him as the son of James Sanderson Henderson, but he was really the grandson. Thomas's father was David Henderson, as documented in the source in this profile, "Henderson, Thomas Maxwell, birth & baptism details.pdf".
