bullet  General Notes:

In 1863 Frederick Brown Hadfield obtained in partnership with a Mr H.D.Jackson and a Mr W Lightband a grazing licence for 20,000 acres in Golden bay. Frederick Brown HADFIELD purchased 1,000 acres at Awaroa. Harry with his father and brother William along with a Mr Lightband landed at Tonga and set up a camp. They walked two miles over the hill to Awaroa and took the first flat land. Their father and Lightband then returned to Nelson .They had a hard time clearing and breaking in the land and making a living which strained their later marriages .Wool was 4 pence per pound and they sold butter and hop sticks. They built a fine and stately house on a low promontory at Awaroa Inlet and Frederick George joined them They also went into timber milling and boat building. What is thought to be the last large trading vessel built at Awaroa was the scow "Venture",a 46ft ketch rigged vessel of 19 tons launched in 1905. It was owned by Frederick George Hadfield and a Mr W. Winter. Frederick also owned another Auckland built vessel the Orakei which was built in 1882 and was also used for trading between Golden Bay and Nelson. Both these vessels were wrecked on a reef outside Awaroa Inlet, the Orakei in 1909 and the Venture sometime prior. The Venture was towed into Awaroa Inlet but never re floated while the Orakei was salvaged and later reregistered in Nelson.
