[Hadfield, Octavius] 1814-1904 :[The Retreat, Pakaraka, Bay of Islands, last home of Archdeacon Henry Williams, 1853]
- Hadfield, Octavius, 1814?-1904; Hadfield, Amelia Caroline, 1869-1956
A front view of a single-storied house with hipped roof, and a verandah on at least three sides. There is a central front door and two sets of tall windows on each side. A further attached building is visible at the back of the house, on the left. A man, possibly in clerical hat, possibly Henry Williams, stands on the verandah to the left of the door. A circular drive passes close to the house, surrounding a lawn. Trees are on the left and right of the house, along with a flower-bed at the foot of the verandah
Dating: The Hadfield family visited the Williams just after the completion of the Williams' home, the Retreat, in January 1853 and just before departing for England. Their next visit to Pakaraka was many years later, when various additions, not shown here, had been completed. The small structure to one side was Henry Williams' study, complete with a small chimney.
