All the following was taken from the site: THIRD WAIKATO MILITIA - Cambridge

The first Europeans to settle in the Cambridge area were the 3rd Regiment of the Waikato Militia, during the New Zealand Land Wars of 1860-1866.
More and more immigrants were arriving wanting land to farm but the Maori did not want to sell. The Waikato tribes united and elected Te Wherowhero as King in 1858 - known as King Potatau 1. Mistrust grew between the settlers and Maori, and Governor Sir George Grey, while talking peace, prepared for war, which he declared on 11 July 1863.
Recruitment for the Militia began. In the 3rd Waikato Regiment about 47% of enlistments were from the South Island, 24% in Auckland, 17% in Australia and 10% from regimental headquarters. About 18% were labourers, 13% miners, 10% in the building trade and 11% in agriculture.
The Waikato War continued with the last battle being fought at Orakau (near Te Awamutu) from 30 March to 2 April 1864. The British then confiscated about 1.2 million acres of Waikato heartland. Of this, 225,000 acres became native reserves and 50,000 acres were returned to the tribes. About 150,000 acres were subdivided for military settlements, the remainder to be sold to pay for the war

About 11% of these 700 militia soldiers were under 21 years
- 57% were aged between 21 and 30 years
