First Maori War in New Zealand 1845-1847

[ 1845 - 1847 ]

After the British assumed formal control of New Zealand in 1840, European settlement and government began to alarm the Maori, especially in North Island. In 1845 some Maori chieftains began ravaging the Bay of Islands and other areas of the far north (in what has sometimes been called the First Maori War) and were not finally suppressed until 1847, by colonial forces under Governor Sir George Grey. His victories brought a peace that lasted from 1847 to 1860.
