Historical Notes: See Turnbull Library Record vol.22. no.1, May 1989, p.33-40 for an article by Maureen Lander establishing that this view is of Kohukohu and is accurate in its details. The view dates from a trip Heaphy made with other New Zealand Company employees in December 1839, looking for appropriate areas to establish cities. The New Zealand Company's vessel the "Tory", with the artist on board, was in the Hokianga Harbour between 2 and 16 December.
