     Kemp House is the oldest surviving European building in New Zealand. The Stone Store is the country's oldest surviving stone building. Kemp House was built by the Reverend John Gare Butler in 1821-22 as a mission house. From 1824-31 the house was occupied by the lay missionary George Clarke and from mid-1832 by blacksmith and lay missionary James Kemp and his family. The mission was closed in 1848, but the Kemps stayed on, eventually buying the house from the CMS. Their descendants lived there until 1974 when Ernest Kemp presented the house and its contents to the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.

The First European Familes

     There was much excitement when the first European families arrived to take up residence. The flat-bottomed punt laden with the settlers and their chattels was towed into Kerikeri by two Maori canoes on the morning of 21 December 1819. Those first settlers were the Rev. John Butler, his wife Hannah, their eighteen-year-old son Samuel, two-year-old daughter Hannah, and their servant Richard Russell; James and Charlotte Kemp; William and Margery Puckey, their son William Gilbert aged fourteen years and three daughters, Caroline, Elizabeth and Jane; Sarah and William Fairburn; William and Elizabeth Bean with their young son William, born in Australia in 1817 and their very young baby George Thomas, born at Rangihoua on 21 October.

     On the foreshore, near where the Tea Rooms are today, was a blacksmith's shop, 21 feet by 15 feet and a long building, 60 feet by 15 feet, designed to be a store. Charlotte and James Kemp and Francis Hall moved into the blacksmith's shop while the others, eighteen people in all, took up residence in the store. Living in such crowded and primitive conditions, carrying water from the nearby stream, cooking (at first) out of doors must have been very trying, particularly for the women. For the young mother, Elizabeth Bean, nursing a two-week old baby with another very young child, it was particularly stressful; then, some six months later their three-year-old, William, died (12 July 1820). Three months after their arrival, Sarah Fairburn was delivered of a son, Richard Alexander, on 29 March 1820.2
