Life in Early Poverty Bay

Settlers Before 1860

Settlers Before 1860.

On my return to reside in Gisborne in October, 1873, the following are numbered among those whom I was closely in touch with: Richard Poul-grain, who had arrived in 1840, a son William at Te Karaka (Richard Poul-grain died after Captain Read); Tom U'Ren, who was living on the old family estate at Makaraka. (the railway station is on part of it, and it was called “Roseland”; Mr. and Mrs. Tarr (1845). Mrs. Tarr lived to a great age: John Harvey (1846); Mr and Mrs. Dunlop; Brown (grandfather of Mahaki Brown, now at Puha); Capt. Read: James Smith, who lived near Awapuni, near the wool works; James Mackey (father of Ra and Wi); and John U'Ren, who was farming at Taurika (John and Tom U'Rren were sons of the old pioneer). The above all came to Poverty Bay before 1860.
