Mr. Frederick Williams
Mr. Frederick Williams , sometime a Justice of the Peace, was born in Middlesex, England, in the year 1827, and was educated for the medical profession in London, in company with his brother, who afterwards practised for many years in Nelson. He came to New Zealand late in the fifties, and shortly afterwards entered into partnership with his brother in the purchase of land, in various parts of the Marlborough province. They soon became large landed proprietors, and held property at the Clarence, Awatere, Avondale, and at Blenheim. It was whilst inspecting his estate at the Clarence that Mr. Williams came by the accident that ultimately caused his death. He died at Brooklands, Blenheim, in the year 1869, leaving three sons and two daughters.
