Historical Notes: The Southern Whale Fishery Company settlement of Hardwicke was the shortest-lived of all British colonies. Promoted in 1850 as a whaling base and agricultural colony, with Charles Enderby as its own resident Lieutenant Governor, the settlement grew toa population of 300, but was abandoned after 2 years when the fishery collapsed and the environment proved too inhospitable for vegetables & crops. See Dingwall, P. Castaways of the Auckland Islands in Landscape no. 8 (nov 1980) pp 12-17, (especially p. 16)
