William Jenkins and group
Studio portrait of four sitters. On the right is William Jenkins (1813-1867), a Wesleyan lay preacher and native interpreter who accompanied a Maori peace delegation to Great Britain in 1863 to meet with Queen Victoria. The man on the left may be William Lloyd, a gold prospector who supported Jenkins' expedition to England. The woman on the right is Huria (Julia) Ngahuia and the woman on the left is known as "Harriet", 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.
