Eyre County History


Pauline Wood’s new history of Eyre County can now be purchased at the District libraries.

Eyre County, centred on Ohoka, was one of the District’s predecessor authorities. It actually disappeared slightly earlier than the October 1989 reorganisation, having merged with Rangiora District in March of that year.  A small part of Eyre County, in the Coutts Island area, is now in Christchurch City.

Pauline Wood’s comprehensive history covers all aspects of the County’s life – the people, the economic growth, the governance, and so on – from Maori times to 1989.

Pauline Wood (nee Farra) has previously written histories of Kaiapoi Borough and the Ashley / Mount Grey Downs Schools, as well as editing Women of the Waimakariri.  She is currently Head of  Social Studies at Epsom Girls’ Grammar School, Auckland.
