Palmerston was discovered by Captain Cook in 1774. He found the island uninhabited, though some ancient graves were discovered. The ancient name of the island was supposedly Avarau, meaning “200 harbours.” In 1863 Marsters, a carpenter and a barrel maker arrived on Palmerston with two Polynesian wives and annexed the island from the British government. He added a 3rd wife and sired 23 children, whose descendants now inhabit Palmerston.
