George CLARKE1

(1823 - 1913)
Father*George CLARKE1 b. 1798, d. 1875
Mother*Martha Elizabeth BLOMFIELD1 b. 1802, d. 1882
Rev George CLARKE
(1823-1913)
Chancellor,
University of Tasmania
George CLARKE was born on 29 June 1823 in Parramatta, New South Wales.2,3,4

After attending school in Van Diemen's Land, George junior received a Classical education from William Williams at Waimate North and Turanga (Gisborne), and was fluent in Maori. In February 1842 he was translator at the trial of Maketu, who was condemned to death for murder. George then became translator for William Spain during the latter's investigation of pre-1840 land purchases and was appointed sub-protector of aborigines in 1842. He was in Wellington at the time of the Wairau affray. Because of his New Zealand upbringing and family connections and because Wellington was the prime New Zealand Company settlement, he became the victim of constant public vilification.

From June to December 1844 George accompanied the New Zealand Company surveying party to Otago as Maori advocate, and prepared the deed which conveyed the land for the future settlement of Dunedin to the New Zealand Company. In 1845 he acted as negotiator and interpreter for the British in the wars against Hone Heke. Although Grey pressed him to remain in government service, he went to live with family friends in Hobart in 1846 and, in 1848, left for England to undergo theological training. In 1851 he returned to Hobart as a Congregational minister.5

He married Martha Clarke HOPKINS in Hobart, Tasmania, on 16 January 1853.2,1

He advocated secular public education and, from 1898 to 1907, was chancellor of the University of Tasmania. In 1903 he published his reminiscences, 'Notes on early life in New Zealand.6'

George died on 10 March 1913 in Hobart, Tasmania, at age 89.2,4 He was buried on 12 March 1913 at the Cornelian Bay Cemetery in Hobart.7
