Cover of the family history book The McCauley Family of Katikati, New Zealand: 1876 to 2012 by Debbie McCauley. Cover design by Sarah Elworthy using The Katikati Special Settlement allocation of land map from An Ulster Plantation (1975) and the McCauley tartan. BLURB: IN 1876, JOHN McCAULEY (SNR) arrived in New Zealand on board the ship Jessie Osborne with his family. During the arduous journey one grandchild died and was buried at sea, another being born nine days out from Auckland. They left their native Ireland to take up George Vesey Stewart’s challenge ‘transplanting of a little corner of Ulster upon a Garden of Eden in New Zealand’ and, more specifically, in the Katikati Special Settlement in the Bay of Plenty. Published in conjunction with a special McCauley family reunion bringing together John McCauley’s descendants, the book offers an insight into the lives of our forebears. This is a family history telling the story of one of the pioneering families who helped to carve out the New Zealand we know today.
