Barraud, Charles Decimus 1822-1897 :"Cottage on the farm", Te Ore Ore, Masterton. 1856
Richard Collins farmed at Te Ore Ore from 1849. According to Bagnall's "Wairarapa..." (1976), his house was destroyed by the 1855 earthquake. Therefore, these buildings may all have to have been erected in one year.
