Description
The Clere family arrived in Taranaki in 1877 on board the ship 'Furniture trained as an architect in England prior to coming to New Zealand and after initially settling in Wellington, Frederick came to Taranaki in the early 1880s living for a while in New Plymouth, Hawera and Patea. By 1883 he was in Wanganui and then later returned to Wellington where he lived until his death in 1952
With research assistance from Susan MacLean of Wanganui, David Luke has written this essay about the life of his maternal grandfather Frederick de Jersey Clere. As Clere was an architect, it focuses on houses he occupied and/or owned and includes photos of houses still standing in the early 1990s.
