Item of Interest... After she came to NZ she offered T.J Edmonds (Edmonds "sure to rise") the recipe for the baking powder used on the William East farm, in return for her son Rupert to be given a job in the factory. Soon after Rupert was asked if he had any gardening knowledge, and moved to become the Gardner. He set out the well known grounds of the factory and maintained them for a number of years.
