The Webb family, like all migrants, faced enormous challenges when they came from England to start a new life in Hawke's Bay in the 1880s. Exploring their letters, diaries, sketches and other primary source materials will offer students vivid insights into the family's personal experiences as 19th century migrants, detailing their departure, the sea voyage, arrival in Napier and the impact of European settlement on the Seventy Mile Bush surronding their new home in Ormondville.
