Its History

In 1892 Edward Walter Kermode claimed a farm and registered it as 'Spring Valley Range', later to become Mabelreign. He arrived in the country from the Isle of Man with the pioneer column as a personal servant of Archibald Calqhoun, the country’s first administrator

Shortly after registering the farm, in 1895, Kermode returned to the Isle of Man where he married.

Mabelreign was named after Miss Mabel Mann, who was a fiancee of a surveyor named Swatheral. Miss Mann laid claim to the land despite the fact that the title was already held.[1]
