Applications for land succession, Māori Land Court

This is a pānui (notice) issued by the Māori Land Court in 1953, which lists land-succession applications to the court. The applicant, the block of land and the deceased are recorded. The court would have examined each of these applications and determined whether the application for succession was valid.
