Historical Notes: The Bishop Octavius Hadfield's first encounter with Te Rauparaha took place on Tahoramaurea in November 1839. Te Rauparaha was known to have occupied several places continuously, including Tahoramaurea, throughout the 1830s and 1840s. Similarly Motungarara was occupied by Te Rangihiroa, Te Hiko-o-te-Rangi and their relatives during the same period. Shortly after the arrival of Hadfield, and the day after the inter-tribal battle Kuititanga at Waikanae, the NZ Company arrived in the "Tory". During this period Edward Jerningham Wakefield would often stay at Motungarara where he observed that the Maori settlement had recently been pallisaded for fear of attack from the neigbouring Ngati Raukawa following the recent battle.
