Sir William Fox
Sir William Fox (1812-1893) was born in Durham and emigrated to New Zealand in 1842. After his first appointment as resident agent for the New Zealand Company at Nelson, the whole of his life was spent in intense political activity in New Zealand. It is impossible to summarise his wide political career : he was an accomplished water colour painter, and his work in this field is a valuable contribution to our knowledge of early New Zealand.
