All Saints Cemetery, Howick

All Saints is one of the earliest churches in Auckland. All Saints’ Church in Howick was the first parish church in Auckland and is the oldest building in Manukau. Established in 1847, it has been a focal point in a community which has seen many changes through the years. The old All Saints (Selwyn) church was prefabricated at St John’s College, Meadowbank, and hauled by bullock wagon from Howick Beach.

The cemetery has many historic burials, particularly around the old church, built in the Selwyn style. The modern church, on the same site, has more plaques for the deceased than headstones.

Notable Burials

Many early settlers are buried in the grounds of the church. Notable burials include:

  • Stephen Ponsonby Peacocke (1813–1872), British officer of the Bombay Army, notable artist, and member of the New Zealand Legislative Council
