In 1847 he and his brothers were granted a lease, and in 1849 he became Commissioner to the Southern Whale Fishery Company and Lieutenant-Governor of the Auckland Islands colony. "Hardwicke", the proposed town, was abandoned in 1852 when the whale fishery failed to provide sufficient returns.

The Mitchell Library (Sydney) and the Royal Geographical Society Library, London, hold papers relating to Enderby & Co., founded by Samuel and later headed by Charles, with brothers Henry and George both involved.
