'The Life and Times of Robert Graham: Entrepreneur, Founder of Grahamstown (1869) and Tararu Township' by Maureen Burr

As a descendant of the Graham's, Maureen was interested in finding out more about Robert Graham. From her findings she is going to give an interesting insight into all aspects of his amazing life. He started life in New Zealand in the Bay of Islands, moved to Auckland, went to California, established Grahamstown, developed Waiwera Hot Springs and the Lake House Rotorua and still had time for his farming ventures. At St Marks Church in Remuera you will find this extraordinary man’s last resting place.
