Early Wellington

Wesleyan Church, 1840

Wesleyan Church, 1840.

Reference is made to the Manners Street Church site by Jerningham Wakefield in his “Adventure in New Zealand.” He writes: “The Rev. John Aldred, Wesleyan missionary, arrived from Kawhia on the 23rd December, 1840, and fixed his abode near Te Aro Pa, on the spot where Mr. Bumby had imagined himself to have secured for the mission, and which had been laid out on the plan as a public market reserve (the site of the women's rest room).
