Thanks Amanda.

You found an error in my tree.

I'm after the one with the middle initial B. :)

Cyclopedia of New Zealand v5 Nelson
Mr. W. B. GIRLING was born at Brentwood, Essex, England, and was educated at a private school in London, where he was apprenticed to Howitt & Co. He came to New Zealand in 1872, landed at Nelson, and engaged with Wymond and Co., drapers and clothiers, but did not stay long with the firm before he decided to establish the business of W. B. Girling and Co., in which he met with a large measure of success. Mr. Girling died on the 20th March, 1898 ; aged sixty-five years.
