bullet  General Notes:

[Henry Dustin Auckland.FTW]

1879 saw the arrival of the ship Geraldine Paget in Wellington with another Dustin from Plymouth on board. This young man was William Samuel Dustin, aged 18 years, the son of John and Louise. Louise was the daughter of a labourer of 1 Princess Square, Plymouth.
William Samuel qualified as a cook and baker with the Royal Navy followed by training in the finer details of the baking trade and pastry cookery with bakers from Plymouth and Tavistock in Devon.

The vessel, Geraldine Paget on which William and his later wife Ceclia Barrett emigrated met with rough weather soon after leaving England, causing chaotic conditions in the ships cook house, with the ships cook "withdrawing" from all duties. With 320 persons on board William a 19 year old Baker by trade is said to have taken over the task of supplying the ship. As, it is suggested, the Captain asked for volunteers from the passengers to help run the kitchen and bakery, and if one of those volunteers who came forward and, for the three months of the voyage assisted along side William was Celia Barrett, then aged 20 years, then their subsequent marriage may well have had its roots in the ships kitchen!

After serving with a few bakers in Wellington and Wanganui, William started up his own bakery in Wanganui in 1880 aged only 19 years old. Using all his training and knowledge, and with a dedication and determination that showed in all he tackled, William established the well known firm of Dustin's Ltd which went on to cater for all kinds of dignitaries from NZ and overseas, including the Duke and Duchess of York in 1927, (who were later to become King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.) In 1909 Dustin's Ltd were appointed as bakers to His Excellency the Governor, who was then Lord Plunket.
William, known fondly as W.S., died in 1927 and was deeply mourned by the Wanganui community who knew him. Not only had he contributed to the businesses of the area with his bakery but he was an avid sportsman, interested in rugby, boxing, boating, bowls and athletics. He was also a member of the Freemasons and the old Wanganui Naval Artillary.

The obituary for WS DUSTIN read: "Mr W S Dustin of Wanganui, died on Saturday aged 66 years. Mr Dustin was intimately associated with the progress of Wanganui. He had been a member of the Borough Council for many years, and had served on other public bodies. He was Chief Petty Officer of the old Wanganui Naval Brigade, and was Captain of the Wanganui Guards. Mr Dustin was a keen supporter of Amateur Sports. He went to England with the original All Blacks, and was also one of the official party with the All Blacks Team which toured Britain in 1924. He leaves 5 sons and 3 daughters."
