Nor am I certain about this immigration ;D,  but I will post it just in case.

A search with this link
https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1609792

Shows a transcribed listing for one R L CLARKSON.
But when I look at the original document on the download, I believe it is R S CLARKSON.

The two can look alike in the older scripts.

CLARKSON, R S.
Arrived 10th September, 1910 aboard Athenic
Departed Cape Town. He was a gentleman due to land at Wellington.

The electoral Rolls show Reuben Spensley CLARKSON was registered to vote in 1914 and also with Ruby Lilian.  He was a photographer and living at Bracken Avenue Epsom, Auckland

NZ rootschat members will do better at helping I am sure. ;D

I do see according to 1901 census, the head of the family as  mentioned by Raylen was -

John CLARKSON  who was 55 years old and a cork merchant.
He was an employer.
Born Yorkshire, Melbeck.

His wife was Elizabeth M CLARKSON aged 54 born in London, Surrey.

Raper Clarkson m Ruth Spensley 8 Apr 1845 Grinton, Yorks

https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3Araper~%20%2Bsurname%3Aclarkson~
