1808 · Revenge on the Parramatta

Age 8

The Parramatta was a French vessel that was taken over by the British. After the capture, Captain Glynn eventually led the ship to the Bay of Islands to stop for provisions. The New Zealand Natives offered them a large amount of food, including fish, pork, and potatoes, filling the Parramatta's storage almost to capacity. As Captain Glynn prepared to take off, the Natives boarded the ship to inquire about payment for their goods. The crew responded harshly by throwing the Natives aboard and shooting at them as the boat pushed off from the coast. However, an unexpected wind sent the Parramatta directly onto a large bed of rocks. The Natives quickly made their way onto the wrecked ship to have their revenge; they killed the crew and plundered all the possessions they could find.
1809 · Burning of the Boyd

Age 9

The Boyd was a ship that sailed from Australia to New Zealand to pick up kauri spars, a certain pole made of flexible wood. Aboard was the Maori Chief's son which was constantly bullied by the crew. Because of the abuse that he suffered, the Chief's son told his tribe of the things that happened, and they planned revenge on the ship and its occupants. This group of Maori came at dusk and killed all but five people. while towing back the Boyd towards their village, the Chief sparked a flint next to some open barrels of gunpowder and caused the ship to explode. After that day, the Maori has considered that location sacred and prohibited to outsiders.
