Hoyte, John Barr Clark, 1835-1913 :[Gladwyn Wynyard's house, Devonport, ca 1870]

Reference Number: C-133-057

View of Gladwyn Wynyard's house from a rocky vantage point. Gladwyn Wynyard was the son of Colonel Robert Henry Wynyard who held various positions of high office through Sir George Grey, being Lieutenant-Governor of the province of New Ulster (North Island) in 1851. The house has a verandah with two doors opening on to it and two double hung windows either side of each door. Smoke is curling from two of the three chimneys and a variant of the white ensign flag (the Union Jack has been placed in the centre of a white background instead of alongside the flag pole) is flying in the left hand side of the garden. A small female figure identifed (in the Dunbar Sloane auction catalogue, August 30 and 31, 2000, Wellington, p 25) as Gladwyn Wynyard's wife "Miss Nuki" wears a blue dress and white shawl. With her back to the viewer she walks in the garden on the right hand side of the house. The garden is well established with a row of small fruit trees in blossom in the centre right. A large willow tree with taller trees behind dominates the left foreground. The land at the back of the property looks well cared for with a fence running along the top of the hill behind. A descendant of Gladwin Wynyard reports that the site of the house was the triangular block in the junction of Calliope Road and Clarence Street (Lot 21A in Section 2 of the Takapuna Parish, being 4acres, 1 rood, 15 perches). It is highly probable that the flagstaff shown is the government flagstaff north-east on Mt Victoria. (AT 13/14/1, 23 May 2001).
