Nineteenth Century New Zealand Artists: A Guide & Handbook

ABBOT, Edward Immyns d.1849

ABBOT, Edward Immyns d.1849

Worked in New Zealand as a surveyor about 1845–49. Was described as a young man of superior abilities and of considerable musical and artistic accomplishment. (A Lemuel Abbot, portrait painter, 1760–1803, and a John Immyns, musician, who died 1764, and whose son was organist of Surrey Chapel, suggest themselves as forebears.) Abbotsford, Green Island, Dunedin, is named after him. Work reproduced in A. H. McLintock's The History of Otago 1949, Exhibited: Centennial Ex. Represented: Hocken.
