Historical Notes: According to Louis Ward's "Early Wellington" (p.325), in 1863, the three houses closest to St Peter's were (in order from the church, going north) owned by Mrs Edwards, Mr Watkin and Mrs Farmer. Mr Stewart owned the two-storied house beyond St John's, across Dixon (then Ingestree) Street. There are clear views of all these houses in this image
