1830 - 1858 - 1843 - 1860
Hutton, Thomas Biddulph, 1824-1886; Williams, Henry, 1792-1867; Lennard, Leslie Maurice Wyn, 1903-1988

A lawn in front, with croquet hoops, inset garden and winding paths on both sides, leading to the house, with an outbuilding on the right and trees on both sides. A woman is moving along the path on the right and another on the path on the left.

Henry Williams moved into this house in 1830. There is a drawing of the house by him in Auckland Institute and Museum, location PD 52 (2). The Library has a photograph of the drawing under Williams, Henry. House at Paihia ... 1830.

Possibly the work of T B Hutton, Williams' son-in-law. He visited Paihia about 1858-1860. The style appears similar to his work.
