Mary Ann Bardsley c1826 – 29 October 1884
Mary Ann Bardsley was the wife of Moses Bardsley, who set up the first soap-manufacturing firm in New Zealand in Cumberland Street in 1859.
From small beginnings, the company soon grew into the largest and most complete of its kind. Messrs Bardsley and Son was also the first soap-manufacturing firm to turn their attention to the manufacture of fancy toilet soaps on a large scale. Their “Prize Pal” soap had a reputation all over New Zealand. The competition presented by the McLeod Bros, another soap-manufacturing factory that was also situated in Cumberland Street (next to the present-day Cadbury factory) may have proved too much for the survival of the company.
