CYCLOPEDIA OF NZ 1897
Jones, Robert: Farmer, Ngaurukehu, Moawhango. Mr Jones was born in 1862 at
Wanganui, where he spent his early years in farming pursuits. He took up his present
holding of 3000 acres in 1878, in its virgin state. The property has been greatly
improved, being well grassed, fenced and subdivided, with neat and comfortable
buildings, carrying 3000 cross-bred sheep besides cattle. Mr Jones' outlet was, for many
years, via Moawhango and Napier, but it is now by Ohingaiti.
