Description
George Grey was twice governor of New Zealand and Premier from 1877 to 1879. In Wellington in the 1880s, he was a familiar sight tottering along on his daily walks, a frail figure in his oversized tall hat, escorted by his massive disciple, Richard John Seddon. Grey Street in Wellington is named after him.
