5201 Whangarei Hospital of Cancer Brookes, Joan Elsie McHarrie (I14660)
 
5202 When he, Agnes and Lewis went to Ballarat, he would have met up with his brother George and his family who were then living in that town. While James may have been a good baker he was not a very good business man as he was made bankrupt 3 times in his career in Dunedin.This was not as uncommon as might be thought in those times nor had the same stigma attached and he seemed to come out of it. I have not been able to confirm property purchase save that of the bakery with the dwelling above it in Andersons Bay, Dunedin although he did have premises at Gt. King Street, Dunedin at one time. He is understood to have had some land at Tainui (between Andersons Bay and St Kilda) but what happened to this is not known. I’m not keen to delve into land records! Walker, James (I2649)

5204 William Lee Plunket, 5th Baron Plunket, GCMG, KCVO, KBE (December 19, 1864) - (January 24, 1920) was a British diplomat and administrator. Born in Dublin, he was educated at Harrow and Trinity College Dublin before entering the Diplomatic Service, being sent to Rome in 1889 as an attaché to the British Embassy there. In 1892, he was appointed in the same position to the embassy in Constantinople, and finally retired two years later. In 1894, he also married Lady Victoria Alexandrina, youngest daughter of the 1st Marquess of Dufferin and Ava, by whom he was to have eight children.

Having succeeded his father as fifth Baron Plunket in 1897, Plunket three years later became private secretary to Lord Cadogan, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland at the time, and fulfilled the same role for his successor, Lord Dudley. He was appointed CVO and KCVO in 1900 and 1903 respectively, and in 1904 he became Governor of New Zealand as well as a KCMG the following year. He held this post until 1910, when he was advanced to GCMG. He was later appointed KBE in 1918.

Lord Plunket died aged 55 in London, and was buried in the city's Putney Vale Cemetery

Governor of New Zealand 1904 - 1910

He joined the diplomatic service in 1889 but retired two years later to become private secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.

He became Governor of New Zealand in 1904 and during his term was a grand master in the Irish constitution of Freemasons. He also took a great interest in the Order of St John and to this day Governors-General are priors of the order.
