More Info →Monrad family

Bishop Ditlev Gothard Monrad, his wife, sons Viggo and Johannes and families came to the Palmerston North area from Denmark in October 1866 and settled at Karere, 3 miles from Longburn near Palmerston North. The Bishop was the former Premier of Denmark who left after finding himself the scapegoat for Denmark’s defeat in the war with Germany. Bishop Monrad returned to Denmark in 1869 and Viggo and his wife Olga continued on the farm. Olga died 1884 and Viggo returned to Denmark in 1889, leaving his sons, Oscar and Ditlev, farming. The photograph shows Viggo (far right) and Olga (seated with young child at left) Monrad and their children, and Johannes wife (seated with baby at right) and children, at Karere.
