Marriage Details

Thompson, John, Barrister and Solicitor, 11 Brandon Street, Wellington. Telephone 428. Bankers, Bank of New South Wales. Private residence, Nairn Street. Agents—Auckland, Messrs. Devore and Cooper; Christchurch, Messrs. Loughrey and Lane; Dunedin, Messrs. Stout, Monday, and Sim; Nelson, Messrs. Fell and Atkinson; Napier, Messrs. Carlisle and McLean; Wanganui, Messrs. Borlase and Barnicoat; New Plymouth, Mr. O. Samuels. Mr. Thompson was born in Wellington on the 7th of July, 1856, and was educated as he was able to obtain information from time to time. He attended the old school at Kaiwarrawarra, and after having left that place, he assisted his brother, Mr. C. Thompson, who for many years was well known as the lessor of the toll-gate, Kaiwarrawarra. Mr. Charles Thompson was a prominent figure in local matters. He was connected with the Kaiwarrawarra Town Board, and took an active part in volunteer and military matters, being captain of the Kaiwarrawarra rifle volunteer corps. Mr. J. Thompson obtained a seat in the office of the late Hon. A. de B. Brandon, and after having left the service of that firm, then known as Messrs. Brandon, Shaw, and Brandon, Mr. Thompson decided to make an effort to study in order to qualify himself for the examination in general knowledge, so as to be ready to meet the requirements of the statutory law. Mr. Thompson devoted many hours to study, under the tuition of Messrs. E. T. Mason, Registrar of Friendly Societies, Kenneth Wilson, and E. T. Charlensed respectively, and presented himself for examination when the late lamented Dr. West was examiner. Mr. Thompson was notified on the 16th of April, 1884, that he had passed his general knowledge examination, and on the 29th of October following he was advised that he had finally passed the examination in law. He was admitted to practice as a barrister and solicitor on the 12th of November, 1884, after application having been made to his Honour Mr. Justice Johnston. Mr. Thompson was for some time employed by Mr. Edward Shaw, the prominent magistrate, who for many years was well known in Nelson in connection with scholastic matters. On the 28th of August, 1888, Mr. Thompson was married to Annie Milne, daughter of Mr. William Scott-Milne, one of the oldest settlers in the Hutt District, and for many years a member of the Provincial Council. His contemporaries were the best known men in Wellington. The present practice was established in June, 1886. Subsequently Mr. W. R. Haselden joined Mr. Thompson, under the style of Haselden and Thompson, and on Mr. Haselden''s retirement Mr. P. E. Baldwin was admitted to the partnership, the firm being Thompson and Baldwin. Mr. Baldwin retired about the end of 1894, and Mr. Thompson has continued to practise solely. Mr. Thompson was admitted to act as a patent agent, in accordance with “The Patent Agents and Trade Marks Act, 1889.” on the 7th of April, 1892.
