Edward Peters

Edward Peters found gold in the streams around Lawrence in Central Otago before the famed discoverer Gabriel Read showed up. Originally from India, he had previously worked the California goldfields. He found gold about 1857 at Tuapeka and used it to pay for his provisions. It was Peters’ success that drew Gabriel Read to the area.
