|Parliament of New Zealand|
In 1876 he polled second in Thames to Sir George Grey, who had also stood for the Auckland West electorate. A committee decided that Grey was validly elected for Thames as well as Auckland West, but that Grey had to decide which electorate he wished to represent. Grey had originally chosen Auckland West, but then decided that he wished to represent Thames and asked that a by-election be held in Auckland West for the vacated seat.
