Biography
Buick, William Butler, Farmer, Burnside, Opaki, Masterton. A son of the late Mr. W. Buick, who came to Wellington per ship “Arab,” the subject of this sketch was born in 1842 in the Empire City, and after many years experience in farming at Petone, he settled in the Wairarapa. In 1881 Mr. Buick purchased the property—2000 acres—which he now farms. This fine estate is all fenced, and will keep three sheep to the acre. Mr. Buick is a believer in Romney Marsh sheep, of which his flock mostly consists. He takes an interest in horse-racing, being a member of the local jockey club, and is interested in sports generally, and is a supporter of the Caledonian Society. Mr. Buick, who is a Mason and an Oddfellow, was married in 1865 to a daughter of the late Mr. Henry Collett, of the Hutt, and has four sons and two daughters.
