The Tetley Affair

Colonial Dreams & Nightmares

The Honourable Joseph Dresser Tetley MLC, runholder and politician, was a personable and popular entrepreneur who enjoyed a high profile in Marlborough in the 1860s, only to depart suddenly leaving behind a number of unhappy friends and financial associates. This fascinating account of his life has never been told before and sheds light on this intriguing episode in New Zealand’s early pastoral and financial history.
