                                                                                                            EMIGRATION TO NEW ZEALAND

In 1847 at age 38, Thomas Lucas was pensioned out of the army - presumably in Ireland. Here, at least two of Thomas and Ellen's 12 children were born. They then made
the decision to emigrate to New Zealand under the
"Fencible" scheme. They came on the ship 'Berwick Castle", which sailed from Gravesend, London on 13 Jun 1852, with
40 pensioners, 37 women, 68 children arriving in Auckland on 13 December 1852.The Fencibles were all ex Imperial troops who lived in the four Fencible Settlements on the
then outskirts of Auckland. One was at Howick, the others at Onehunga, Panmure and Otahuhu. The settlements were to be part of a line of defence in the event of a Maori
invasion from the South. The Fencibles were paid a small wage and were permitted to work within a five mile radius of their settlement. They were required to attend a
weekly military parade and to maintain their uniform and rifle and each was given an acre of land and the materials to build a 2 room cottage.

The Crown allocated to Thomas, in August, 1858, a 1 acre block [now 177 Grey St] located on the northeastern outskirts of the 1847 Onehunga fencible settlement. Land
allocations were made to military settlers such as Thomas as part of an inducement to protect and develop the new colonial town. It is currently uncertain if Thomas erected
a house on the site, although five years after his death his widow Ellen took out a mortgage (1888) secured by 'hereditaments and premises' on the land. In 1890, the site
later to be occupied by
Pleasant Villa was purchased by Maria (Mary Ann) Kearney, [nee Lucas, daughter of Thomas Lucas] wife of an Auckland storeman Richard
Kearney. In 1897, it was on sold at a profit. The purchaser was William Kemp (1841-1906), who had previously bought the eastern half of Lucas' original 0.4 hectare block in
1866 and probably also two adjoining 0.4 ha (one acre) blocks immediately to the east to create a 1.2 ha (3 acre) holding.
