James Hamlin Diary
James Hamlin, Diary 1830-1832.
The Revd. James Hamlin co-founded the Waimate Mission Station in 1830. In between writing up sermons and undertaking maintenance work (repairing and painting windows), he traveled throughout the region, exploring the countryside. On display are entries for an expedition begun on 26 November 1832 from Kerikeri and which ended a few weeks later at Mangonui. On this trip, Hamlin was accompanied by Mr (Henry?) Williams, Mr Baker, William Puckey, Mr (Rev Joseph?) Matthews, and thirty-six local Maori. Hamlin left the north for Puriri (Thames) in 1834.
