Havelock North: From Village to Borough 1860-1952
By S.W. Grant


A history of Havelock North has already been written and published in 1962 by Mrs. I. Nolan, the wife of a former Town Clerk. Mrs. Nolan researched her work thoroughly and I am indebted to her book for some of the information incorporated in my own. Mr. D. A. Wallace and Miss M. Giles have also written accounts of early Havelock residents and families and I have made use of some of their material. However I have tried to approach the history of the Village from a different angle from that used by Mrs Nolan, rather telling of what life in the Village was like for its inhabitants and outlining its physical growth, than describing the provision of services by the Town Board and Borough Council, important though those services are.


-The Beginnings
-The Early Growth of the Village
-From the Foundation of Hastings to the End of the Great War 1874-1918
-The Inter-Wars Period
-The 1939-45 War and Arrival at Borough Status
