    Born in Glasgow May 15, 1820, Robert Graham was the fifth child of Barbara and Robert Graham, a farmer and coal merchant. In 1842 he sailed on the ship 'Jane Gifford' bound for Auckland, New Zealand where he and his brother opened a general store. Several years later he purchased 20 acres of land including the hot springs at Waiwera and opened a hotel that catered to tourists. Over subsequent years Graham embarked on many land transactions. He owned the Terrace Hotel at Wairoa and thermal resources near Huka Falls. He purchased Motutapu and Motuihe Islands 1857-1869; Kauaeranga near Thames (Grahamstown subdivision) 1867; land at Te Koutu (Lake Okataina), Wairakei and Ohinemutu. Fluent in Maori, Graham was a mediator between Te Pokiha Taranui and Petera Te Pukuatua (Maketu) in 1878. He died in Auckland on 26 May 1885.
