I tāia e John Gilfillian tēnei tānga a ‘A native council of war’ i te tau 1853. E ono tau i mua atu kua whakamatea tana wahine a Mary me ā rāua tamariki e toru ki tā rātou pāmu i Matarawa ki Whanganui. I te tāronatanga o ngā kaikōhuru e whā i te Āperira o 1847, ka riri anō ngā iwi o te taha whakarunga o Whanganui. Nā whai anō ka heke mai a Tōpine Te Mamaku ki te whakapae i te tāone.
