About Emily Charlotte Sophia Surtees

Emily Charlotte Sophia Surtees (née Stewart) was born at Moneymore in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland on 1 August 1857. She was the eldest of what would become 11 children to the ‘Father of Katikati’ George Vesey Stewart. Emily was a rare breed, a woman photographer in a male-dominated profession, and the Emily Surtees’ Photograph Album is undeniably the most important discovery in recent times about the history of the European settlers at Katikati in New Zealand’s North Island.
