Tauranga confiscation records   (24590)
1864 - 1932  range held: 1864 - 1932


The folders in this series contain papers of the Commissioner of Tauranga Lands relating to the investigation of claims and awards of lands in the Tauranga region confiscated in 1865 under the New Zealand Settlements Act 1863.

The papers include correspondence, memoranda, notices, notes, lists of owners and claimants, copies of Crown Grants and other related papers.

Most of the papers date from 1864 to 1886, when investigation of land claims passed to the Maori Land Court, though there is one folder of papers relating to another claim in 1932.

Much of the inward correspondence is annotated 'CT - Lands' at the head of the first page, while some has been registered into the Native Land Court inward correspondence series, some with registration numbers for the Compensation Court, and some the Native and Defence Department, as the papers were sent between agencies as the matters to which they related were referred between them.
