Andrew Chalton: Naming of Netherton


I recently came across the below article.

Samuel Chalton is my great, great grandfather. According to family history his family came from Netherton in the north of England and he owned a farm named Netherton in England.

When he came to NZ and established a farm in what is now Netherton, he named the farm the same (presumably for nostalgic reasons). His farm Netherton was a postal agency for some time which is why the name was adopted.
