Historical Notes: The Hocken Library has another version of this view, titled Port Underwood with Jacky Guard's house. A note has been added underneath the painting (probably by Dr Hocken): Jack Guard was the pilot of the 'Pelorus' and carried on business as a whaler and sealer. He was the first [Pakeha] to enter the south eastern mouth of the channel being driven in by a gale in 1827. Grave of Rangiawa (Kuika) native wife of Mr Wynen who with her infant son was found murdered at Cloudy Bay on the 20th Dec. 1842. The indignation of the Maoris at the acquittal of the white man who was supposed to be guilty of the murder is regarded as one of the indirect causes leading to the Wairau Massacre.
