Reconstruction in Practice New England Colonies It has long been understood that the prime motive for the founding of the New England colonies was religious freedom. Certainly what those early colonists wanted was the freedom to worship God as they deemed proper, but they did not extend that freedom to everyone.
The idea was that the construction work for this infrastructure would support the settlers until they could develop farms on the blocks of land allotted to them. At this time, the Manawatu and western Hawkes Bay was still largely undeveloped, in most part covered in dense impenetrable forest.
For these areas, Vogel was keen to recruit settlers from Scandinavia, who were reputed for their skill as foresters and axemen.
It also appears that he may have also been influenced by an early, and rather illustrious settler in the Manawatu — Ditlev Gothard Monrad, former premier of Denmark. Monrad had immigrated to New Zealand, along with his family, inin a kind of self-imposed exile.
Clearly not afraid of hard work, he found a small clearing on the banks of the Manawatu River, in Karere near Longburn and, using timber from the surrounding thick forest, built a home and then went on to develop a farm. Calaeno, arriving in Februarywas the first ship bringing Scandanavian settlers bound for the Manawatu.
On it were 51 people from Norway and Sweden who were to make new homes for themselves in the heavy bush land which surrounded the swampy clearing, known as Papaioea, that was to be Palmerston North. The 18 families were allotted a small block of land of around 40 acres at either Whakarongo the Stony Creek block or Awapuni the Karere block.

The men were provided with work building roads and a railway and felling bush. A road and tramway was built through the bush from Foxton to the site of Palmerston North, providing better access to the fledgling township. The home of one of these first group of settlers, Petter and Maja Andersen, who were allotted a 33 acre block of land at Whakarongo still survives today, though relocated to Clifton Terrace, the river terraces overlooking Palmerston North.
