Master mariner, merchant, and prominent Auckland citizen.

William Crush Daldy was born in Rainham, Sussex, in 1816, the son of Samuel Rootsey Daldy. At the age of 16 he went to sea and in 1840 sailed from Liverpool in his schooner Shamrock, arriving in Auckland in July 1841. For some years he traded between Auckland and Sydney, apparently with success, for when Brown and Campbell's vessel Bolina left for England on 20 December 1844 with Auckland's first cargo of exports Daldy sailed with her as captain. In 1847, back in New Zealand, Daldy established a timber mill in Auckland, which he carried on until 1849 when the wholesale and shipping firm of Combes and Daldy was founded. This firm flourished for nearly 50 years.

Although he was interested in political affairs, and particularly in those of the Provincial Government, Daldy did not hold office for long periods. He was a member of the House of Representatives from 1855 to 1860, being Minister without portfolio during the short reign of the Fox Ministry in 1856. During 1857 and from 1861 to 1864 he was a member of the Auckland Provincial Council. In 1865 he was agent in England for the Provincial Government and was instrumental in sending out emigrants to New Zealand.
