Containing records of over 13,000 early settlers of New Zealand. Title, forename, surname, date of birth and date of death are provided for the individual, both for settlers and those subsequently born in New Zealand. The vessel and first place of residence are provided about the settlement. (All information where available) The settlers, often know as Pakeha settlers, braved the three month sea journey crossing to travel to New Zealand and set up a new life. Settlement increased significantly from 1837 onwards, in most part due to the setting up of the ‘New Zealand Association’ whose purpose was the colonisation of the country. These aims were achieved through a number of ship voyages and ‘The New Zealand Land Company’ which purchased large areas of land from the Maori. The land was then used as the basis for the new settlements and sold off in parcels to those who immigrated there.
This currently contains a roll of over 4,000 Holders of the New Zealand Medal and those who were killed in action during the war of 1860-70. From the 1840's New Zealand has been protected by a number of militia and volunteer forces. These units were initially set up after pressure from settlers that the British Imperial Troops deployed from Australia, who were New Zealand's sole security force, were not capable of providing the required protection.
