    Notes 
    • Was sent out with a ship load of men by Queen Victoria to establish a whaling station on the Auckland Islands. Conditions were so severe that they finally gave up. All except two families (the Cook's and the Bromley's) returned to England. They settled in New Zealand. The Bromleys moved to Porirua Ferry and there the rest of the children were born.

      An archaeological reconstruction of the 1849-52 Enderby Settlement at Port Ross.
      Abstract: The so-called Enderby Settlement, established on the shores of Port Ross at the AucklandIslands in the period 1849 to 1852, was one of the most remote and short-lived of all British colonies. The brainchild of the English entrepreneur Charles Enderby, its resident Lieutenant-Governor, the colony was intended as a whaling station and agricultural base for provisioning ships in the region. When whaling failed and farming proved fruitless, the intended town of Hardwicke was never established and the settlement was abandoned, with all but one of about 30 buildings dismantled and removed. This paper presents the results of a 2003 archaeological survey of the site, which along with contemporary diaries and illustrations, has enabled the layout of the settlement to be reliably re-constructed for the first time. The locations of two outlying farmhouses, on AucklandIsland and EnderbyIsland, were also investigated and mapped. The survey demonstrates various archaeological techniques used for revealing a disappeared settlement where there are few material remains, and unaided by sub-surface excavations.
