He was also chairman of the Wetherby District Liberal Committee. Mr. Lynd belonged to the Unitarian body.

|1893||31||1862||son of William Lynd||A contemporary states that there is likely to an official inquiry into the circumstances attendant upon the short stay in Napier of a young man named Gordon Lynd, who died almost suddenly in July last. He came to Napier originally in March last, to look at the district with a view to farming. He was so pleased with the province that he subsequently transferred his bank account rom Wellington to Napier, and on May 17th had a considerable sum to his credit. From that date till July 4th he got rid of £209 in some way. It is said that he was very much under the influence of liquor all that time, and that no doubt this hastened his death. The deceased's friends are moving in the matter. Hawke's Bay Herald (New Zealand) 4 September 1893|
