from "The Cyclopedia of New Zealand (Wellington Provincial District), Commercial & Industrial:
... Frederick William Devereux, Wholesale and Retail Butcher, Main Road, Lower Hutt. Bankers, Bank of New Zealand.
This business, the only one of the kind in the township, was established in 1856 by the late Mr William Checkley Devereux, father of the present proprietor.
The founder, whose portrait is reproduced herein, came to the Colony in 1855, per ship "Myrtle," and settled in the district. He took a keen interest in local and colonial politics for over thirty years, and died in 1887 - five minutes after having voted at the general election of that year.
Mr. F. W. Devereux, who took over the business in 1886, does a good trade. The premises, which are freehold, include a two-story shop and dwelling. His slaughter-house, fitted with every modern appliance, is situated on the Main Road about a mile from the shop. Mr. Devereux was born at the Lower Hutt in 1859, and learned his business with his father, assisting in the management of the business for several years before taking it over on his own account. As an Oddfellow he has been a member of the Rose of the Valley Lodge for some eighteen years past. In musical matters, Mr. Deveieux is a singer, and possesses a good tenor voice, which he is ever ready to use as a soloist for any local charity. He is also an amateur athlete, and, having studied the noble art of self-defence, has attained considerable renown as a boxer
