Historical information

Twine family were the owners of the Newgain property.
The building's original use was as a granary and dwelling. The date of construction of the granary is estimated to be c1860. The builder was George Henry Hasell and the architectural style is Victorian Georgian.
James Twine came to the colony as a labourer in 1833 and bought a farm in Guildford. He traded this farm with Dr Viveash's Toodyay holdings in 1852 in order to consolidate his land with his stepson's inherited lands. Further purchases during the 1860s lead to a 1400 acre pastoral leases to the east and developed the neighbouring farm, 'Maisemore'.
James Twine was an inaugural member of the Toodyay Road Board. He retired in 1874 and his sons took over management of the
properties. (ref: Toodyay Municipal Inventory, 2010 listing ref 93)
