Samuel Culley

Associated with Ethnology collections

'An interesting collection of garments, made of fibrous grass, and a helmet of feathers, with specimens of the weapons and fishing hooks used by the native Maories, now almost extinct in New Zealand, were presented by Mr. S. Culley, the City Accountant, who was in his young days an agent for the New Zealand Government.' (Southwell 1896: 277-278)

Four New Zealand Flax garments, one personal ornament and a NZ Flax sample now in World Museum collections, but other items unlocated, presumably still at Norwich.
