Kimble Bent (Ringiringi) 1837-1917. A soldier from the 57th Regiment who after being gaoled for 2 years for stealing a watch and later given 25 lashes for refusing to carry firewood, promptly deserted and lived with Maori in the back-blocks of the Taranaki region for 14 years before eventually resurfacing from 'exile' in 1878. He died in Blenheim aged 80.
