The Family moved to Masterton in 1906 and to Hawkes Bay in 1908.
Fred farmed several properties in the Havelock North,Te Mahunga, Otaemuri, Twyford and Irongate areas, also at Rawhiti on Glencarry Road.
Several of his chilkdren were first day pupils at Twyford School and he was the first Chairman of the School Committee.
he was one of the first in the Hastings district to move cattle by motor truck.
He bought a property on Irongate Road, which he farmed for some years. When he and Lottie moved into Southampton Street, Hastings, his son Gordon took over the farm and specialised in Friesan cows. On his retirement, Gordon sold half of the farm to his older son Graeme, who planted it in peach, nectarine and apple trees. Some years later when Gordon and Hazel moved to Southampton St, Hastings, Gordon sold the other half to his younger son, Cedric. Cedric has since sold his piece, but Graeme and Ruth are still living on Irongate Road.
