About Rev. George Brown

Miss Jessie Brown was the teacher in charge of the “Native” primary School, attached to St Mungo’s, in Auckland. She was the grand-daughter of William Chalmers who came to the Gwali Mission in 1827. When the War of the Axe (1846) broke out the family fled to Fort Armstrong for refuge, again during the 8th Frontier War (1850-53) all the white males were killed, and the family sought refuge in Fort White. After the war Rev. Brown, disillusioned by the destruction and brutality, gave up mission work and farmed at St Mungos to provide for a family of 9. He planted the first orange grove and made marmalade.
