Mystery land owner

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 14 March 2011

Peter Henderson has been paying the rates on land in Hunterville that isn't even his, in the hopes that descendants of the original owner will someday come forward and claim it. The land was issued by Crown Grant in March 1893 to a Edmond James Dennehy. A New Zealand soldier by the same name died at Gallipoli in 1915. There are connections to the O'Driscoll family.
