Peter Bares, b.1911 d.2000, (Greek name, Panayioti Ververis) was born in Greece and emigrated to New Zealand in 1930. His wife Maria, b.1912 d.1995 (nee Vounatsos), came to New Zealand from Greece in 1939, to marry Peter. They had three children, Mercina, John and Jim. Originally living in Wellington they moved to Palmerston North in 1945 when they bought the Royale Dutch luncheon and tearooms, which they ran until selling it in 1957-1958. They then helped their son John run the Casino Cafeteria in Rangitikei Street, Palmerston North, until 1967. The couple were founding members of the St John Greek Orthodox Church in Palmerston North.
