Charles Ross was of that great Australian breed, the Overlanders. Arriving on the Ashburton in the early 1890s from the Kimberley and further east, he was a successful prospector.

A run-in with a powerful pastoralist had him stripped of all his assets, jailed for nearly six months and undergoing three trials, two of which had hung juries and the third setting him free.
