Category:Douglas Maclean

Sir Robert Donald Douglas Maclean (1852–1929), generally known as Douglas Maclean but sometimes spelled McLean like his father, was one of the largest land holders in the Hawke's Bay region of New Zealand. He was regarded as the country's most successful breeder of shorthorn cattle and Welsh Ponies. He had inherited his station from his father, Donald McLean, who was one of the most influential figures in Māori-Pākehā relations in the mid-1800s. For one term, Douglas Maclean represented the Napier electorate as an independent conservative Member of Parliament. After his death, his station was broken up and the land is now covered by 60 farms. The woolshed of his station still exists is is registered as a Category I heritage structure by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.
