Townend, Annie Quayle



  • Existence: 1845 - 1914


In 1855 George Henry Moore established Glenmark Station, between the Waipara and Hurunui Rivers. His house, Glenmark, designed by Samuel Farr, was started in 1880 and finished in 1887, only to be destroyed by fire in 1890. St. Paul's Church, Glenmark, and its vicarage, were paid for by Annie Quayle Townend, Moore's daughter, as a memorial to him. The church was consecrated in 1907.
