KELLOW in New Zealand

KELLOW in New Zealand

Walter Abraham KELLOW was born 1860 at St Peter Port, Guernsey, Channel Islands. In 1875, he emigrated to New Zealand, and established what became a well-known bakery. There is an article about him in the Cyclopedia of New Zealand, 1897, and he crops up in the Rorahi Evening Post in 1911 and 1915 (all available on the Web).
My query is: did he have any children? and what happened to the bakery after his death. Is the name "Kellow" still associated with bread in NZ?
Would love to hear from any of his descendents.

walter abraham kellow was my g grandfathers (James)brother. I believe he married Emma Florence Lines, in Wellington NZ,and they had Daphne - nil married, and Rupert, who made up for Daphne by marrying 2 or 3 times. Ruperts headstone is in Karori cemetery in Wellington. Nil children from Ruperts liasions. Recall my aunt,Norah Mary Kellow (spinster) telling me about the bread business, but no Kellows in that business now
