Neville was born at Te Kopuru Hospital (Dargaville area), the third of ten children, and was brought up in Auckland. He was apprenticed to an upholsterer when he left school.
At the age of nineteen he travelled overseas and lived and worked in England and Scotland for the following eight years. When he came home to New Zealand he set up his own upholstery business. He eventually left Auckland to live and work in Wellington, where he remained until he died.
