Abstract
The focus is the letters and diaries penned by Marianne Coldham Williams (1793-1879) and Jane Nelson Williams (1801-1896) who were resident at the Paihia mission station in the 1823-1835 period. Initially appointed to ‘improve the condition of women in New Zealand’ whose situation was described as ‘far more degraded than that of males’, the Church Missionary Society (CMS) recognised that the labour of women was essential to the success of the mission.
