Treaty of Waitangi sheets: East Coast (8 o 8)

Rev. Henry Williams's brother William, also a missionary, carried this treaty sheet overland up the East Coast from his mission station at Tūranga (later renamed Gisborne). He first collected 25 signatures at Tūranga, then several more at each of Ūawa (Tolaga Bay), Waiapu and Tokomaru Bay. In total 41 chiefs signed this sheet, but the paramount chief of the East Coast, Te Kani-ā-Takirau, declined to do so.
