1864 · War in the Waikato ends

Age 1

The Invasion of the Waikato was the most important campaign during the 19th century Wars in New Zealand. It was fought in the North Island between the Kingitanga Movement, a group of Maori Tribes, and the colonial government. The hostility lasted for nine months, where 14,000 Imperial and colonial troops and 4,000 Māori warriors fought and was the costliest confrontation during the New Zealand Wars. In 1995, the government conceded that the 1863 invasion and confiscation was wrongful and apologized for its actions and later that year Queen Elizabeth II personally signed the Waikato Raupatu Claims Settlement Act.

Name Meaning

1 English and Scottish: occupational name for a weaver, early Middle English webbe, from Old English webba (a primary derivative of wefan ‘to weave’; compare Weaver 1). This word survived into Middle English long enough to give rise to the surname, but was already obsolescent as an agent noun; hence the secondary forms with the agent suffixes -er and -ster.2 Americanized form of various Ashkenazic Jewish cognates, including Weber and Weberman.
