More About This Title 'Ready Money'


Lancashire-born William Robinson, know as 'Ready Money' because he usually paid in cash, developed a great estate at Cheviot in North Canterbury, in the 19th century, after first amassing assets in South Australia, his first destination as an emigrant.


Margaret Wigly is William Robertson's great-grandaughter. She has drawn on the Cheviot Hills Station diaries and other original sources to bring us this lively account of her notable forebear.
