Carol meets Captain Cain

Carol and Captain Cain.
Stretching our legs in Timaru, Carol snuggled up to Captain Henry Cain (1816 to 1886). The good captain went to sea at age 13 and apparently was quite successful, hence the title "Captain". Anyway, he settled in Timaru and managed the store, eventually becoming Mayor in 1870 to 1873. Poor dear, he died in 1886 after being poisoned by his son-in-law.

No wonder he looked so stern! Always checking his teacup, poor fellow.
