About Henry Weekes

Henry Weekes emigrated to New Zealand in 1840, working as the surgeon-superintendent on board the ‘William Bryan’, which arrived in New Plymouth on 30 March 1841. He returned to England the following year, but set forth again for New Zealand in 1945 with his wife accompanying him. The couple remained at Auckland until 1949, when they sold their property and departed for California. Weekes returned to New Zealand, via England, in 1854, serving in the Auckland Militia during the New Zealand wars. Dr Weekes was a prominent identity on the early Thames goldfield, noted as the Health Officer in 1869.
