    • BIOGRAPHY

      Samuel Oliver Spurdle, known as Ollie, the eldest son of Oliver Spurdle and Maria Litherland, was born in New Plymouth in 1859. He moved with his parents to Waitara when about 8 years, and about 1873 to Wanganui to learn the building trade with his uncle Frederick Morris Spurdle. Samuel returned to Waitara and worked as a carpenter and also worked with his father learning the wheelwright trade. In 1887 Samuel married Emma Gilbert in New Plymouth. Emma was the younger sister of Elizabeth Gilbert who was married to Samuel's uncle William Akerman Spurdle. Emma and Samuel had five children, the first two being born in Waitara.

      Samuel and his family moved to Inglewood where Samuel started a wheelwright business. Emma died in 1924 and Samuel in 1944. Both are buried in Inglewood Cemetery.

      Source: Janette Howe and Robyn Spurdle published Spurdle Heritage for the 1992 Spurdle family reunion. Much of the above information, by Robyn Spurdle, is extracted from that publication. The book contains considerably more detail. Copies of the book are held at many New Zealand libraries.
