Additional Notes by Leo:  Not a lot is known about Arthur Young. We believe his parents were English. He had another brother named Cecil and a sister named Edith. She remained a spinster and liver most of her life in the Nelson area and worked in the Photography Business.

Arthur worked in the Meat Industry in Ashburton where he married Jane Hart. They moved to Waitara in 1905 where he became Manager of the Canning Works which in later years was the works butcher shop belonging to Thomas Bothwick & Sons.

Two sons were born to the marriage Bertie Fairton (Bert) and Ivan Newman. The house they lived in was on the corner of     Cracroft and McLean which in recent years was replaced by Dick Wilsons Garage.

In later years Arthur divorced Jane but the sons were grown up by this time.

Arthur Young dies in 1928 aged 60.

Jane (Mater) Young died in 1958 aged 82 years.
