Kiambu Scrapbook - Ruiru - Mr P.G. Dickinson, a brother-in-law of the well remembered "Billiam" Webb had started to farm on Kia-Ora, on the other side of the township in 1908, but did not plant coffee there till 1912. Mr Webb himself came to Kenya that year to manage another farm of Mr Dickinson's at Nyeri. In April 1914 he went to Kia-Ora, Mr Dickinson being on leave in England, and managed both properties until war broke out, paying monthly visits to Nyeri on a bicycle and only taking a day to cover the 91 miles of extremely bad road. But the major coffee developments in Ruiru in which he took part were made after the war when Mr John Ross joined the partnership.
