Peter ROBERTSON

(1817 - 1895)
He was probably the child baptised on 24 April 1817 at Logierait, Perthshire. This is based on the date in John Ward's website being the date matching this baptism, and the names of the parents, namely James ROBERTSON and Catherine MESSON, which closely matches Peter's daughter Catherine Mason.1,2

He married Janet GILLESPIE in Alloa, Clackmannanshire, on 4 December 1840.3,4

He was listed in the 1851 census as Head of Family in Alva, Stirlingshire, with his wife Janet. Their children James, Catherine and Margaret were listed as living with them.5

Peter left Greenock on 12 November 1857 on board the 'Robert Henderson' (550 tons), arriving in Dunedin on the 9 Feb 1858 with his wife Janet GILLESPIE, accompanied by Margaret, James, Catherine Mason, Thomas Gillespie and Peter.6

An article in a May 1880 'Otago Witness' entitled 'A Visit to Tuapeka, and a Chat with Mr Peter Robertson, of Lawrence' states:
"The name of Peter Robertson is as inseparable from Tuapeka district as is that of Gabriel Reed. Mr Robertson has been an eminently successful settler. He has resided in the neighbourhood for 22 years, and that he is actually the second settler in the district.
He arrived in Dunedin in the 'Robert Henderson' on her first trip to the province, and was shortly engaged by Mr John Miller to proceed to what was then almost a terra incognita. Mr Miller was at that time Mr John Cargill's overseer, and the later had just stocked the Waitahuna run.
The family left Dunedin with Goodall's bullock dray, reaching the Taieri Ferry after an uneventful journey of two day's duration. Here they were wind bound for two days more, and stayed at Harrold's, being then rowed in a small boat to the head of the lake by a party of Maoris. From thence the journey was made to Tokomairiro with the aid of Mr Gray's harness bullock, the party staying a couple of days at Mr Goodall's. The next stage was two Meadow Bank, the homestead of Mr Cargill, the mode of conveyance utilised this time being Mr Miller's saddle bull, Jack. To Manuka Creek formed another day's journey; and the last stage was to the shepherd's hut at Break-neck, the mode of conveyance again being a bullock team. The hut - it is standing to the present day - was only 17 feet by 11 feet; Mr Robertson's description of the discovery of gold will be of more than local interest."7


Peter died on 24 October 1895 at his residence in Lawrence, Otago, at age 78.3,8 He was buried on 27 October 1895 at the Lawrence Cemetery in Lawrence.3
