The Rev Thomas Chapman officiating right of centre, bald-headed and wearing spectacles, with a crowd of English and Maori spectators, around the reclining aged chief Te Ngahue, who was baptised on his deathbed. Te Ariki was on Tarawera Lake. Sir George Grey is probably the standing figure in profile at Te Ngahue's feet while the smaller dark man standing behind him with handlebar moustache and side whiskers is likely to be Grey's secretary, John Jermyn Symonds
