In a letter to Sir George Grey dated 3rd April 1852, the settlers of Wellington and neighbouring districts wrote:
... We, the undersigned Settlers and Landowners of Wellington, in the colony of New Zealand, beg respectfully to express to your Excellency our strong sense of the serious evils to our interests and injury to the colony, arising from the Act to regulate the affairs of certain of the New Zealand Company's settlements, passed during the last session of Parliament
... The Act of Parliament revives the Terms of Purchase and Pasturage of Land, issued by the New Zealand Company in Wellington, and in force at the date of the surrender by the Company of its charters to the Government, which fix the price of rural land in this settlement, in blocks of 25 acres, at 2 per acre; (2012 equivalent of about $250) the effect of these terms, when in force under the Company, was such that no rural land was sold in this settlement. But since that period so much additional land has been granted in compensation to resident and absentee land purchasers as to reduce the price of rural land, except in particular situations, considerably below 20s, per acre ...

Taken from the brilliantly informative site:

- Waiho i Porirua, i te kainga ururua
- The taming of a wild land -

In the early days of European settlement the advantages of settling the Porirua district, and of opening up the rugged forest-clad lands by means of roads was clearly recognised. In a despatch from Governor Grey to Earl Grey, of March 26 1847, occurs the following :
In a military point of view, the possession of a great part of the Porirua district, and its occupation by British subjects, were necessary to secure the town of Wellington and its vicinity from future hostile acts and aggression from evil disposed Natives, as it was only by the occupation of the Porirua district that the various tracks leading across the woody mountains which lie between Porirua and Wellington, could be effectually closed against an enemy.
Thus Porirua, it was deemed, would form an excellent buffer state for Wellington, from a military point of view. The protection of the aforesaid settlers does not seem to have entered into the scheme.

... In August 1840, news was received in Wellington from New South Wales of the passing of the New Zealand Land Bill that declared any titles to land in New Zealand not derived from the Crown null and void.
This seemed to cut the ground from under the feet of the settlers, and something very much like a panic ensured.
Some of the Wellington settlers are said to have proposed a re-migration to Chili, but were dissuaded from carrying out their plan.
The Crown grants were eventually obtained, after much trouble.

In 1855 25 acres and a house at Porirua, the property of James Mitchell, was sold for 170 (about $18,000 in 2009)

These are SOME of the old settlers on the Porirua Road as written about 1851, or a little later.
