In May I came up to improve my farm and also to take charge of the whole property, as William went to try his luck at Thames. Smith and W Hamill commenced ditching through William's flax and ti tree land and then on to Bald Hill Road boundary, after which they went down to my farm and commenced ditching in two large paddocks. They both stuck at it well. I never saw men work better. These ditches were of a double ditch and bank. In May I put up my first cottage at 'Pencarrow' in which the men lived."

He married a widow, Mrs Caroline J. C. Barton and brought his wife and family to Cambridge in September 1864 as General Galloway "wished to see men getting their families there and he thought the example would have a good effect". He was told he could put his home where he liked so in September 1864 he put up a whare, fenced, drained and planted trees at considerable expense. After the survey his 'piece' was made a reserve and he was allotted the acre next door - much to his annoyance.

WAIPUKURAU also known as 'Ypuk', is the largest town in the Central Hawke's Bay District on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand. It is located 50km southwest of Hastings on the banks of the Tukituki River.

The town is close to the site of a Maori pa, from which it gets its name. The pa was situated on the town's main hill, named Pukekaihau. The name is said to mean water of pukerau, pukerau being a type of fungus. The town was the site of the first church in inland Hawke's Bay, built in 1847. Much of the town dates from a model village built by local land-owner H.R.Russell in 1867.

At the 2006 census, the town had a population of 4,008 compared with 4,002 in 1996

From the NZETC WAIPUKURAU written about 1906:

Waipukurau, the centre of a large sheep-raising country, is a township situated on the main line of railway, five miles south from Waipawa, and forty-four miles south by rail from Napier, in the county of Waipawa. The site of the township was originally held by Maoris, and there are still to be seen relics of the settlement, including an old pa.

The first settlers were Messrs PURVIS and H. R. RUSSELL, who arrived in the early fifties, and they were followed by Messrs John HARDING, Captain NEWMAN, Donald GOLLAN, James EVISON, James MAIN, George WINLOVE, John SHARPIN, John EVANS, Hugh ROBERTS, A. JONES, Peter GOW, and John PALMER.

Mr. H. R. Russell took up a large area of virgin country, which he successfully farmed for many years. He laid out the township, and built a hotel, and he gave land for many public purposes. In the early days, when wheat was grown more largely, flour-milling was carried on in the locality, and, subsequently, saw-milling and flax-milling flourished for a time. Boiling down works were originally conducted in conjunction with sheep grazing, but, later, Messrs NELSON Brothers established a branch freezing establishment, which, however, was afterwards closed down.

The opening up of large estates from time to time, including the Mount Vernon and Hatuma estates, has greatly assisted settlement. The country is chiefly undulating, of fine farming quality, the roads are excellent, and the climate is good. Waipukurau has post, telegraph, money order, savings bank, and other Government offices, a branch of the Bank of New Zealand, and a hospital. There are also churches, a library, a large public school, and a fine hotel. A newspaper is published in the township, and there are extensive saleyards. There is fine scenery in the neighbourhood, good shooting is obtained on Lake Hatuma, and there is abundance of fish in the river. In the vicinity of the lake there is a large racecourse, with a fine grand stand

On Saturday morning, the Oxford-Kaiapoi train, due about seven o'clock at West Eyreton, had passed that station two miles, when a man was seen lying stretched out, apparently dead, on the road near the line. Guard Nelmes and the engine-driver, Stirling, pulled up the train. They found the man quite benumbed with the sharp frost, and unable to move. With assistance, he was lifted into the guard's van, and conveyed to Kaiapoi. There the police conveyed him in a van to the police station, where he was wrapped in blankets, and attended, and a doctor was called in. The man's name was ascertained to be Frank Brown. He was a passenger on Friday evening's train to West Eyreon, arriving at 7p.m. and got off to go to a farm where he was employed, about two miles away. He had with him a bottle of whisky, and sat down by the wayside and drank its contents, and fell asleep. This was on an open and exposed part of the country, and considering that there was from 8 to 10 degrees of frost, it is almost a wonder that he survived the experience. He was able to appear at the Kaiapoi Court report the Press, and was ordered to ay 12s 6d expenses.
