Senator for New South Wales, 1901–10 (Free Trade)

John Cash Neild was born in the prosperous English port city of Bristol on 4 January 1846 to a surgeon of the same name and his wife Maria, née Greenwood, the daughter of a banker. In 1853, the family migrated to New Zealand, but the resurgence of war with the Maori led them to move to Sydney in 1860. Young Neild began work with an importing firm before establishing himself in 1870 as an insurance commission agent. Soon he was managing the Sydney offices of several English fire and accident insurance companies. On 29 October 1868, he married Clara Matilda Gertrude Agnew, daughter of Philip Agnew, the clergyman who founded the anti-papist Free Church of England in New South Wales, and Matilda, née Sutton. The only child of this marriage died in 1876; Clara died three years later. On 19 February 1880, Neild married Georgine Marie Louise Uhr, daughter of George Uhr, a former sheriff of New South Wales. Neild’s English birth and his early experiences and relationships through marriage shaped many of the attitudes he clung to throughout his adult life, notably his enduring love of England, his devotion to free trade, and his distrust of Catholicism.[1]

Like his father, Neild was blessed with an ability to speak and write fluently. He dabbled in literary and dramatic criticism and in poetry and, at the age of thirty, embarked on a political career. He served on the Woollahra Municipal Council from 1876 to 1890 and twice was Woollahra’s mayor. In 1885, he was elected to represent Paddington in the colony’s Legislative Assembly and held his seat intermittently until 1901. On entering Parliament, Neild supported Sir Henry Parkes and promoted his own unique combination of causes, especially free trade, old-age pensions, law and divorce reform, and state protection for children and the insane. His first speech on 20 November 1885 was a witty hammering of the government of George Dibbs. Better known was his performance on 23 June 1886 when he managed to speak for eight hours to delay the passage of a bill for customs duties. In January 1887, Parkes nearly chose him for his ministry. Neild reached high office outside Parliament when he served from 1891 to 1893 as Right Worshipful Grand Master of the Loyal Orange Institution of New South Wales.[2]
