O'Neill's Point Cemetery is a CLOSED cemetery, i.e. no longer open for new interments.
O'Neills Point and the cemetery were named for Alan and James O'Neill. Allan came to New Zealand as a surveyor for the New Zealand Land Co. in 1842, and arrived in Auckland from Taranaki in 1845. Allan and John Campbell (the government surveyor) were responsible for surveying Takapuna, Belmont and Devonport. In 1849 Allan and his brother James, a doctor, bought 71 acres at the end of the Point. In 1857 Allan O'Neill built a family home there for himself and his family.
Lots 10 and 11 Bayswater Point were originally purchased from the Crown in 1845 by Thomas Homes and William Joseph Pettit of Sydney for just over two hundred and thirty five pounds.
