Early Landowners in Hataitai

The Turnbull Library has several editions of a map made by E H Beere between 1877-1889 which show lot boundaries and owners' names for Section 4 and 5 of the Evan's Bay District (the area from Evan's Bay to the Town Belt, Tapiri St to just past Henry St.)

I've made a list of those names shown on the map, with the date that the land was transferred to that person. (To search for a particular surname, use your browser's "find" function). Underlined names are mentioned elsewhere on this website - click to move to other pages.

The last column shows my comments or additional information shown on the maps. Please note that I'm not an expert in land records - check the original maps or other sources to confirm details, and please email me with additions or corrections.

The map at the bottom of this page shows the location of each lot. This is a portion of an 1881 map sourced from Wellington City Archives, but the lots are the same as on Beere's maps.
