William Effey was an Australian businessman in Queensland who owned Rowes Cafe in Brisbane and was a shareholder of Hivo Plantations Ltd, which operated a copra plantation in Haevo, Santa Isabel from around 1913 to 1936. Although Effey did not live in Haevo he collected many items through his contacts during his visits possibly up until the 1940's [Effey source file].
