An Epitome of Official Documents Relative to Native Affairs and Land Purchases in the North Island of New Zealand

H. Hanson Turton, Esq., to the Secretary for Crown Lands

H. Hanson Turton, Esq., to the Secretary for Crown Lands.

Whaingaroa.—Error in Boundary of Puketutu Reserve. Auckland, 11th January 1866.


In reference to the plan of the Puketutu Reserve at Waitetuna, near Raglan, I beg to draw your attention to the accompanying sketch of Mr. Todd, the District Surveyor, as being the correct one according to the deed of sale, and so to be inserted in the Crown grant for which I applied. Mr. Breen, the surveyor, was misled by the Raglan Natives as to the starting-point of his straight boundary from Waitetuna to Ngatokorua-a-te-ra-Whatiora, on the Waipa; and so included 486 acres more land than what was included in my original purchase.

I have, &c.,

H. Hanson Turton.

The Secretary for Grown Lands, Wellington.
