Important Judgments: Delivered in the Compensation Court and Native Land Court. 1866–1879.



In 1837 a pa was built at Okahu, under Watarangi and Uruamo, of Te Taou. It is stated that this pa was built against Ngapuhi (Te Parawhau), which is probable, as Apihai's people seemed to have been engaged in a long series of hostilities with them, and they were the only enemy with whom peace had not been made; and it will be remembered how Eruera Patuone, a Ngapuhi, described his refusing to land to cook food at Mechanics' Bay, when passing along these shores in a boat with Governor Hobson, preferring rather to cross over to Takapuna, from fear of Apihai, whom "he had not yet seen," as he says.
