No. 325 of 1882.—Petition of Mary Callaway Te Wheko Yeoland.
Petitioner states that she and her brothers and sisters are grandchildren of Te Wheko, who died at Opotiki in 1867, and that though the said Te Wheko had always been loyal, his lands were confiscated. Petitioner prays for a grant of land for herself and relatives.
I am directed to report as follows:—
That the claims of Mrs. Yeoland's mother seem to have been settled in full some years ago. The petitioner has further claims amongst her mother's tribe, but these are now before the Commissioner for adjudication. The Crown has no equitable liability in this case.
