Emigration to New Zealand followed in the footsteps of the European explorers, such as Captain Cook (1769-70): first came sealers, whalers, missionaries, and traders. By 1838, the British New Zealand Company had begun buying land from the Maori tribes, and selling it to settlers, and, after the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840, many British families set out on the arduous six month journey from Britain to Aotearoa to start a new life. Early immigrants include:
Boy Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century
John Boy, who arrived in Auckland, New Zealand aboard the ship "Stately" in 1851
Mr. John Boy, British settler travelling from London aboard the ship "Stately" arriving in Auckland, New Zealand on 1st June 1851 
Catherine Boy, aged 44, who arrived in Wellington, New Zealand aboard the ship "Douglas" in 1873
