ROSANNA
- left London
- arrived Wellington 1826
- 26 immigrants
- Unimpressed with the foreshore and surrounding countryside, the ship sailed northwards to Hokianga, in the Bay of Islands, where a landing was made. Here, the would-be settlers became alarmed at the stories of the ferocious Maori natives who lived in the area, imploring the Captain to take them on to Sydney, Australia. The first attempts at a settlement had failed


TORY
- left Gravesend 6/05/1839
- arrived Wellington 20/09/1839
- via Plymouth where it left on 12/05/1839
- Colonel William Wakefield was ordered to sail in the barque Tory, a fast 382 ton vessel which left Gravesend on the 5th May, 1839, on an expedition to select a suitable landing site for the vessels and to purchase land from the Maori . There were thirty five people on board including Edward Wakefield and a Maori named Neti, who was to act as interpreter between the parties.
Arriving in Cook Strait, the Tory put into the whaling station at Te Awaiti, then set sail for Port Nicholson where they were met by the two leading chiefs, Te Puni and Wharepouri

He had not decided where he was going to place the capital of New Zealand. Port Nicholson seemed to be the logical place for the Governor to reside as the population of white Europeans numbered some 4,000 immigrants and settlers at that time.
Captain Hobson had, however, signed the Treaty of Waitangi with the Maori chiefs in the Bay of Islands, from where he had travelled down in the Tory to the Waitemata at the instigation of the Rev. Henry Williams. He was extremely impressed with the Waitemata harbour and the surrounding countryside
