Clendon Cottage, a pretty cottage was built in the bustling 1860s by James Clendon, a trader, shipowner and magistrate.
After his death, his 34-year-old Māori widow Jane was left with fourteen children and an enormous debt of £5000.
Nothing like determination and an entrepreneurial spirit.
Jane managed to clear the debt and her descendants remained in the house until 1972.
It’s now administered by Heritage New Zealand.
