Polish timber-workers, Inglewood

The township of Inglewood was being established in the mid-1870s when dozens of impoverished Polish families arrived in Taranaki. A number of the men ended up labouring on road-making and bush-felling contracts. Many were eventually able to buy farms in the area, and Polish surnames remain common in the district.
