William Joseph Napier enjoyed a legal and political career that not only included the position of George Grey’s lawyer, but also time spent as both a local and national politician.

In this talk, David Verran tells the story of this distinguished colonist, who not only supported and stood with Grey as an electoral candidate, but who continued to uphold Grey's legacy long after his death.
