Biography

FINCH, EDWARD , Farmer, “Both-well,” Tuturau. “Bothwell” is a compact farm of 141 acres, on which the proprietor conducts mixed farming, although his attention is devoted chiefly to dairying, for which he has a separator driven by a small engine. Mr Finch was born in 1856, at Dunedin, and is the fifth son of the late Mr John Finch, who came out by the ship “John Wickliffe,” in 1848, and died in 1897, leaving five sons, four daughters, and sixty-two grandchildren. Mr Edward Finch was educated at Milton, where he was brought up on his father's farm, and in 1878 he started farming on his own account in the Milton district, where he remained for seven years. He afterwards engaged in hotel keeping, rabbiting by contract and other occupations until taking up a farm in the Mataura district in 1895. Three years later he acquired “Both-well.” Mr Finch has been a member of the Tuturau school committee for six years. He was married, in 1887, to a daughter of the late Mr George Armstrong, and has seven daughters and two sons.
