William Jenkins and group
A studio portrait of four sitters. Pictured on the right is William Jenkins, the man who organised a group of Maori to visit England to meet with Queen Victoria in 1863. The man pictured on the left may be William Lloyd, a gold prospector who supported Jenkins' expedition to England. The woman pictured on the right is Huria (Julia) Ngahuia and the woman on the left is known as "Harriet" (see research notes), possibly Tere Pakia (Hariata Te Iringa). Both women wear full length korowai (ngore) over European dress and the men wear suits. It is possible this photograph was taken during the 1863 visit to England.
