Henry was kept on as head farmer and lived in a small cottage on the estate. Under the land laws no commoner could buy land to call his own, and as the couple had a large family it became clear that his sons would only be able to farm by emigrating to NZ. The NZ land company wanted good English farmers - they had to be recommended. He was given 20 acres in 1863 (by the land company) at Saltwater Creek, North Canterbury, New Zealand

This section was alongside the Saltwater Creek on one side, and was also bounded by the Mount Grey and Main North Roads.
