Dullatur house, near Opawa

1900

Wilson's Road is named after the Archdeacon. This was a house built by Archdeacon James Wilson, the chaplain on the Canterbury Association ship Isabella Hercus which arrived in Lyttelton in 1851. He had Dullatur built in 1852, naming it after an old family residence in Scotland. He held church services there. "The house was constructed mostly of Hobart-town timber with panelling of deal and Baltic bolted together, other timber used being kauri and totara ? A mast from a ship, supposed to belong to "one of the first four" was also built into the building". Its beautiful garden and orchard were much admired. Wilson moved to Upper Riccarton in 1863. Later occupants of Dullatur were the Count de la Pasture, a Mr Banks (a corn merchant) and John Brightling . The house was standing in his gravel pit. Boards and box-lids with the name of the Isabella Hercus were found in the house at the time of its demolition in 1915. Wilson's Road and Wilson's Bridge were named after Archeacon Wilson.
