Charlotte Badger: First pakeha woman in NZ

From Easter Monday, 10:24 am on 28 March 2016

Charlotte Badger is believed to be the first Pakeha woman ever to have lived in New Zealand. Researcher Jennifer Ashton is trying to piece her story together, but with very little to go on do obscure characters like Charlotte Badger have to be lost to time, or can other lines of research bring her to life? Jennifer Ashton has received a New Zealand History Trust Fund Award to help her with the task.
