Te pūnaha rūnanga a Grey

Te pūnaha rūnanga a Grey

I te tau 1861, ka whakatauhia e Kāwana Grey te pūnaha rūnanga. I whakarāpopoto a J.E. Gorst: 'Ka wāwāhia te whenua ātea o ngā tāngata whenua ki ngā Rohe e rua tekau, ā, kia tirohia iho ia rohe e tētahi Kaikōmihana Ingarihi. Ka whakatakiwātia hoki ngā rohe kia ono ngā Rau takiwā, ā, mā ia takiwā e kōwhiri kia rua ngā kaiwhakawā Māori, kia kotahi te wātene, kia rima ngā pirihimana. Ka utua ēnei āpiha e te Kāwanatanga; kaiwhakawā mai i te £30 pauna ki te £50 pauna i te tau; wātene e £30; pirihimana £10, tae atu ki te hūtu i ia tau. Mā ngā kaiwhakawā tokorua o ia Rau e tū ai te Rūnanga ā-Rohe e tirohia ana e te Kaikōmihana ā-Motu' (J. E. Gorst, The Maori king. Ōtautahi: Kiwi, 1999 (i tānga tuatahitia i te tau 1864), wh. 134). Hei te whakatinanatanga, he nui ngā rerekētanga ka mutu ko te tauira kei runga ake nei he mea tango mai i tētahi pūrongo kāwanatanga mō te Pē o te Whairangi.
