Richard came to New Zealand first as a whaler. He returned to England before migrating in 1842 with his second wife and their baby son. They went to Riwaka, just north of Motueka. A distinguished descendant was Keith Holyoake, the first person to be both Prime Minister and Governor-General of New Zealand.
