Research: "on those immigrants who arrived into Wellington Harbour and were quarantined on Matiu-Somes Island during the 1800’s."

Timothy and Mary TROY arrived on the ‘Rodney’ on 29th August 1875. Their youngest child, Timothy, died on 11 September 1875 while quarantined on Matiu Somes Island.

He is buried on the island along with others who also succumbed to contagious diseases.

There is a Monument on the island with the names of those buried there and it is well cared for....
