Historical Notes: Brees' text in "Pictorial Illustrations" reads: Dr Selwyn, the Bishop of New Zealand, landed at Wellington on the 12th of August. 1842, and introduced the Rev. Robert Cole, M.A., to the settlers as their future Minister, who has succeeded in securing the good will and respect of all classes of the community. After due preparation, a church was built, something after the style of the Christian model at home, and of the early English era, and which is represented in the View. The back of Colonel Wakefield's house is seen on the right of the church, with the harbour.
