Homewood and its Families: A story of Wellington
By Beryl Smedley
"Homewood, the historic house (built in the 1840s) in Karori, Wellington, has been the residence of the British High Commissioner since 1958. The three New Zealand families who have lived at Homewood were successful and influential in the Colony, and their histories reflect the history and development of New Zealand society. Homewood is unique in several ways. Its history is documented in detail from the date of the earliest European settlement in Wellington. In this book Lady Smedley has undertaken much painstaking and detailed research, which she has somehow fitted into the busy and demanding life of a High commissioner's wife. It has been for her, as an author, a labour of love. To the reader, this book will give great pleasure with its many contemporary illustrations and quotations. It brings a real understanding of the way in which the New Zealand community has developed over the past 150 years."
