"Henry Sewell (7 September 1807 – 14 May 1879) was a prominent 19th century New Zealand politician. He was a notable campaigner for New Zealand self-government, and is generally regarded as having been the country's first Premier, having led the Sewell Ministry in 1856.
Sewell personally arrived in Lyttelton, the port of Christchurch (the principal settlement in Canterbury) on 2 February 1853, hoping to sort out what remained of the colony's problems. Gradually, and despite conflict with provincial superintendent James FitzGerald, Sewell managed to get the colony back onto a reasonable course.Shortly after Sewell's arrival in New Zealand, elections were held for the 1st New Zealand Parliament in 1853. Sewell was elected as representative for the Town of Christchurch seat. His legal and financial skill was of considerable use in Parliament.
