(typed, attached to mount, l.c.). Marivare, 60 Ranfurly Road West, Epsom, about 1863.. A century ago a family of Irish Russells had a sudden flowering in Auckland. Marivare, built for Henry Ellis between 1862 and 1865, was bought by J.B. Russell, one of four remarkable lawyer brothers, and remained in his family for three generations. In its heyday it had a ballroom, three tennis courts, and the obligatory croquet lawn..
