Historical Notes: Hapimana Ngapiko of Te Ati Awa accompanied William Jenkins, a Wesleyan lay preacher, and a group of other Maori men and women to England in 1863. The group met Queen Victoria and were shown the sights of England. The Dictionary of New Zealand Biography (1990), p. 348 claims that Hapimana Ngapiko died aboard the "Flying Foam" on the journey back to New Zealand in 1864. Author Brian Mackrell in "Hariru Wikitoria!" (1983) has him returning to New Zealand aboard another vessel, the "Surat", departing England on 20 June 1864, and arriving safely in New Zealand.
