  18. 18. Hamilton By Cheryl & Lauren & Amanda
  19. 19. The history of Hamilton began on August 24, 1864, when the vessel Rangiriri landed a group of settlers at Kirikiriroa. The smallest of three large Maori villages in the area, Kirikiriroa was first settled by the Ngatiwairere, a sub-tribe of the Tainui, around 1700, on the western side of the river. Today, a plaque on the front wall of the Public Trust Office, in Victoria Street, marks the northern boundary of the original pa site. At the time of settlement, two other Maori villages shared the area, one being Te Rapa Pa, the other, on the east side of the river, Miropiko Pa, named after a crooked Miro tree growing on a nearby hilltop. Hamilton, proclaimed a borough in 1877, was named after Captain John Charles Fane Hamilton, who met his death in the battle of Gate Pa. First mayor of the fledging city was Isaac R. Vialou, an architect of some renown with several other business interests in the area. He held office till February 1878 . History of hamilton
