Charles was born in 1837. He was the son of Charles Judd and Maria Hughes. He passed away in 1924. While still living in Hertfordshire Charles did an apprenticeship in engineering and iron founding. He learnt much of his skill from his Uncle, William Hughes. On arrival in New Zealand in 1859 he established himself in Auckland where he worked at his trade for several years before taking over the running of a coastal trading vessel. In 1869/he moved to Thames on the Coromandel peninsular. The gold fields of Thames were by this time well established and he saw the opportunity of producing the heavy machinery for the mines and also equipment. He established his Iron Foundry and the first pour of melted Iron was made on 02/09/1869. The business continued to thrive making a wide range of Iron products including lighthouses and many items associated with the development of Auckland city.
