Historical notes: The property was part of the 1883 Grant and subdivision, portion of 2 rods sold to Lilian Stanthorpe "wife of Edward, Superinspector of Permanent Ways" in 1886 and from her to James Bowes in 1883. It was to be sudivided into two lots of 1 rod each, and sold to James Smith in 1897 and then purchased by Archibald Buckland, Carpenter, in 1919. It would appear that house was built around that date, likely by A Buckland, and was to remain in ownership of the Buckland family for the next 70 years. It was tranferred to Millicent Buckland in 1961 and has changed ownership several times since. (LTO LPI CT 2921-134, 2401-48, 836-211 and PA 11782)
