Description
Andrew Hastie was born in Scotland in 1834. Andrew came to New Zealand via Melbourne and Ballarat in 1858/1859. After trying his hand in the Central Otago goldfields, he returned to Ballarat where he married Welsh born Asenath Lavies on 19 May 1864 in Newcastle. Shortly after their marriage they came to New Zealand, settling first at Kihikihi, before moving to Opotiki. Later they moved to Auckland before moving to Taranaki (c. 1880). They lived and farmed in Manaia. Andrew died in 1907.
The collection consists of 21 of Andrew’s personal diaries, 1880 - 1903, which record daily activities including the introduction of boxthorn and the importation of Clysdale horses, both attributed to Hastie.
A transcription of all of Hastie's diaries, 1880-1887, 1889-1890, 1893-1898, 1900-1902 diaries are available.
