About George Dalrymple Monteith

Dr George Dalrymple Monteith arrived in Port Nicholson, New Zealand on 8 February 1840 on the 417 ton wooden barque Duke of Roxburgh, chartered by the New Zealand Company to bring immigrants to Port Nicholson. Somewhat unusually, Dr Monteith did not come by working his passage as ship's medical officer, but as a paying cabin class passenger accompanied by his wife Elizabeth and their four children (3). Obviously the family came to New Zealand fully intending to settle.

On arrival in Port Nicholson, the first migrants established a settlement located less than a kilometre inland from the beach at the head of the harbour, naming it Britannia. Within two months of his arrival, Dr Monteith had completed construction of a temporary home from where he commenced his surgical practice.
