Land deed (4 o 4)

Private James White of the 4th Waikato militia obtained this deed to an acre (0.4 hectares) of land in Hamilton East in 1867. In addition to a town acre, he would have been entitled to at least 50 acres of land in the country. However, as land outside the towns was often swampy and inaccessible, many military settlers became discouraged and left Waikato within a few years.
