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:
Brees Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century
Samuel C Brees, who landed in Wellington, New Zealand in 1840 aboard the ship Brougham
Samuel Charles Brees, aged 32, who arrived in Wellington, New Zealand aboard the ship "Brougham" in 1842
