Hyman Marks, benefactor

Many of the Jews who arrived in the late 19th century came from Poland or Russia to escape discrimination and persecution. Hyman Marks was a Polish Jew who became a naturalised British subject (and fervent British patriot) soon after he arrived in Christchurch in 1861. When he died, childless, in 1895, he left his considerable fortune to several Christchurch charities.
