bullet  General Notes:

Norman successfully tendered for the contract let by the Foxton Highway Board for the Whirokino Road. It was one pound seven shillings per chain for 33 chains of side drain and partial formation of the road.
Norman was making good progress developing his land for farming but his parents wrote urging him to join them in New South Wales where a new goldfield had been discovered and gold was said to be plentiful. They arranged for a caretaker for the land and packed their belongings and went gold prospecting. However the new field was a failure so they decided to return to Foxton. In the meantime their property had been sold so Norman was forced to find a job.
He got employment with the Government Survey Department but in 1880 when a valuable piece of equipment fell from the wharf into the river, Norman dived in and retrieved it. He remained in his wet clothes and as a consequence contracted pneumonia and died on 21st July, 1880.
