Biography

One daughter

From BECK MJ collection – “From the early 1870s, run holder and politician Henry Robert Russell formed an alliance with Henare Matua who formed a movement to repudiate sales and leases of land by Maori to European settlers in the Hawke’s Bay and Wairarapa districts. The movement grew out of a widespread Maori dissatisfaction with land transactions.”
