More Info →Thomas Uppadine Cook of Foxton (1815-1877)

Thomas Cook was born in England in 1815, he emigrated to New Zealand on the "Adelaide" in 1840 and established himself as one of the early settlers in Foxton. Thomas bought the first Foxton School and was one of the few colonists who did not flee the Manawatu when Te Rangihaeta expelled the Pakehas in 1846. He appears in the Snelson scrapbook (p. 159), although his initials have been read as J. N. instead of T. U. in the Snelson index.
