NAVAL AND MILITARY SETTLERS' AND                                                          VOLUNTEERS LAND ACTS

Home

These were a series of laws passed, firstly, by the Auckland Provincial Government, and later, by the New Zealand Parliament granting land or a payment for land often confiscated from Maori to former soldiers and sailors settling in New Zealand  When the scheme started in  the late 1850's it was intended to encourage settlement as a form of defence for the towns of Auckland, New Plymouth and Wellington. 

It began in 1858 when the Auckland Provincial Government (New Zealand provinces had their own system of government until 1876 when the provinces were abolished) passed the Auckland Waste Lands Act, 1858, a law intended to encourage the settlement of military settlers in the Auckland province and particularly in areas south of present day Auckland to provide a defence against the Maori. This law provided for free land to such settlers who retired from the British forces intending to settle in Auckland and who made a claim within a certain time. Applications for this land had to be made within 12 months of the person retiring or being discharged from the British armed forces, or within 3 months of the commencement of the Act.

By the Waste Lands Act 1858 the New Zealand Parliament extended the Auckland law to the provinces of Wellington and New Plymouth. Claims had to be filed by 1859. Section 15 of the 1858 Parliament Act stated:

"Whereas it is desirable to encourage the settlement of naval and military settlers throughout the Northern Island of New Zealand: Be it therefore further enacted that naval and military officers, whether on full pay or half-pay, and every non-commissioned officer and private, marine, and seaman, whether to Her Majesty's service or to the service of the East India Company, who may retire or obtain his discharge from the service to which he may belong, or who, having retired or obtained his discharge for the purpose of settling in the Provinces of New Plymouth or Wellington, has not selected land under any former law or regulation enabling naval and military settlers to select land free of cost in the said Provinces respectively in like manner and upon the sames terms and conditions as naval and military settlers are entitled to land free of cost under "The Auckland Waste Lands Act , 1858". And the several powers and duties of the Commissioner appointed under the said Act in respect of land to be so granted shall be exercised and performed by any Commissioner of Crown Lands in the said several Provinces of New Plymouth and Wellington."

The system officially ended by 1860 but it appears that, word having spread amongst British forces serving around the world, many ex-servicemen came to settle in New Zealand expecting a grant of free land and found they were too late. The issue festered in the 1870's and 1880's with petitions to Parliament  and in July 1889 Parliament appointed a committee to report on the petitions. In its report back to the Parliament the Committee said:

"The Select Committee appointed on the 9th day of July 1889 to consider and report upon all petitions relating to claims for grants of land by naval and military settlers and Volunteers has the honour to report as follows:

That eighty-six petitions and many letters on similar subjects were referred to your Committee from claimants under “Naval and Military Scrip Act, 1856” (Auckland); under the various statutes affecting officers, non-commissioned officers, privates, marines, and seamen who retired from the army and the navy for the purpose of settling in the Colony of New Zealand; from Jackson’s Forest Rangers and the Forest Rangers enrolled subsequently to the disbandoning of Jackson’s Forest Rangers; from members of the Colonial Defence Force; and from the Volunteers’ claiming under “The Volunteers’ Land Act, 1865,” and amending Acts. There are also very many petitions held over from last session.

Your committee carefully considered the reports of the Royal Commission … which show that the total number of claimants amount to nearly two thousand.

The Committee felt that it was quite impossible to examine properly into the merits of each individual case, and determined, therefore, not to enquire into the prayer of each petitioner, but to limit enquiry to the general principles which should, in its opinion, guide it in recommending the House what course should be adopted to make a final settlement of the various claims.

With regard to claimants under “The Naval and Military Scrip Act, 1856,” the Committee resolved that such persons late of Her Majesty’s naval and military forces who were entitled to scrip under “The Auckland Naval and Military Scrip Act, 1856,” whose claims have not been satisfied are still entitled to a remission of 20 pounds in the purchase of Crown lands within the provincial district of Auckland.

With regard to the claims of the naval and military settlers, the Committee had some difficulty in arriving at a conclusion. These men, on entering Her Majesty’s service, undoubtedly were led to believe to suppose that, if they retired from the service for the purpose of settling in New Zealand, they would be entitled to grants of land, and many men took their discharge with the object of securing land, unaware that subsequent to their enlistment various Provincial Acts provided that claims for land had to be made within a definite period; and, further, that residence within district boundaries for a defined period also was essential before the issue of a Crown grant. It appears that those conditions were not well known to most of the claimants who, in many cases, were quite uneducated men and did not know how to set to work to acquire the land to which they were entitled. Many, undoubtedly, were careless of those rights, and did not apply for land which they did not know how to make use of. Others were deterred from pushing their claims on account of the poor quality of the available lands near the settled districts which remained open foe selection on account of their poverty, and could not, on account of the unsettled state of the Native tribes, and the difficulty of obtaining any employment, occupy lands in the remoter parts of the country. But one of the remarkable features of the case is the fact that the acquisition of land was extremely difficult; most persons applying for land had to wait until surveys were made, and Mr. Percy Smith stated in evidence that surveys took months, and, in many instances, years, to complete. Of course, the ordinary discharged soldier, unprovided with any means of subsistence but his own labour, was unable to wait while surveys were being made, and therefore joined the colonial forces, or wandered away in search of work, and, having got employment, allowed the period during which his claim should have been made to lapse.

Your committee recognise that by a strict interpretation of the law these men forfeited their rights, but cannot think that the Government of the colony has been without blame. The men were led to believe that they would be given land, but, as a matter of fact, they found it practically impossible to obtain it unless in such a remote or dangerous locality that occupation and subsistence would be impossible.

“The Auckland Waste Lands Act, 1867,” dated the 10th of October that year, repealed the only then existing Act granting land to naval and military settler, but it is reasonable to suppose that the repeal of that Act did not immediately become known in all parts of the colony, and that retired officers and men were still arriving for some months after that date from places outside the colony, unaware of the repeal of the various Acts promising land to naval and military settlers; and therefore it seems to the Committee fair that any officers or men who were discharged in the colony or who, having retired from Her Majesty’s service, arrived in New Zealand on or before the 31st December 1868, should be considered as though they had become entitled to land claims prior to the passing of “The Auckland Waste Land Act, 1867.”

To compensate these claimants with money would perhaps be unwise, but your Committee is of opinion that all officers, non-commissioned officers, privates, seamen, and marines who retired from the service with a good character for the purpose of settling in the colony, and who have remained therein, are equitably entitled to the grants of land, according to their respective ranks, they would have been entitled to had they put in their claims (as the provincial statutes provided they should) within twelve months.

[The Committee then made reference to details of the Forest Rangers].

The Committee recommend that Volunteers who were enrolled prior to the passing of “The Waste Lands Administration Act, 1876,” should have all rights respected which had been acquired prior to the passing of that Act. That, after careful consideration of such documents and evidence bearing on the subject as can be obtained, the Committee is satisfied that all members of the Defence Force who completed the conditions of their enrolment are entitled to the same grants of land as the officers and men of the Volunteer and Militia settlers.

Your Committee recommend that power be given to the Chief Commissioner of the Waste lands Board in the various provincial Districts where any of the before-described claimants were entitled to select land to inquire into the equity of each case which may be brought before him, and to grant the applicant the area of land to which his former rank entitled him without further reference."

Its recommendation that power be given to the Chief Commissioner of each land district to decide upon the merits of each claim was given effect by Parliament passing the Naval and Military Settlers' and Volunteers Land Act 1889  in September 1889 which set out a number of categories for making a claim.

Section 2 of the 1889 Act stated:

2. This section shall apply, subject as hereinafter mentioned, to-
(1) All officers, non-commissioned or warrant officers, private soldiers, seamen, and marines formerly of Her Majesty's Naval and Military Forces engaged in suppressing the insurrection of the Natives in the northern part of the former province of Auckland, and, being discharged from the said services, have since then been resident within New Zealand, and claim under "The Naval and Military Settlers Act,1856," of the said province; and to

(2) All persons who retired from Her Majesty's Naval or Military Service with a good character for the purpose of settling in New Zealand, at any time before the thirty-first day of December, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-eight, and who have so settled in New Zealand as aforesaid; and to

(3) All persons enrolled in the Forest Rangers under the conditions prescribed in a memorandum of the Honourable Thomas Russell, Minister for Colonial Defence, dated the sixth day of August, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, or of another memorandum of the same Minister, dated the ninth day of November, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three respectively; and to

(4) All officers of Volunteers or efficient Volunteers who were enrolled in any Volunteers corps within the colony on or prior to the thirty-first day of October, one thousand eight hundred and seventy-six, and who, either prior to the said thirty-first day of October, or who, inclusive of any period of service prior as aforesaid, subsequently completed five years' continuous service; and to

(5) All persons enrolled under "The Colonial Defence Force, 1862," who served within the provincial district of Auckland under the late Colonel Nixon or Major Walmsley, and who had, on or before the tenth day of October, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-seven, completed the conditions of their enrolment under such Act before the said date, or having served under such Act partly before the said date, completed such service after that date."

The Act went onto provide that anyone who believed they were entitled to a land grant under these 5 classes had to apply in writing, including with documents to substantiate their claim, to the Commissioner of Crown Lands in the district where they resided, or where they wished to obtain land, by 31 December 1890. The Commissioners of Crown Lands could examine people upon oath, and call for further papers to support the claim.

In investigating the claims the Commissioner was to satisfy himself as to:

If the Commissioner was satisfied any claim had been substantiated he was to report to the Governor stating "...that the claimant has proved his claim, according to the catergory in section two in respect whereof he claims, to a certificate entitling him, according to his rank on retirement or discharge from service, as the case may be, to the remission of money in the purchase of land in any part of the colony."

The Act then provided the Governor was to submit all reports to Parliament at its next session. The Governor duly reported back to Parliament on the claims and to settle these Parliament passed the Naval and Military Settlers' and Volunteers' Land Act 1891. This Act authorised the Governor to:

"...grant to the several persons mentioned in the Schedule A to this Act certificates in the form or to the effect of the certificate in Schedule B, entitling them respectively to the remission of money in the purchase of land ... in any part of the colony, as shall not exceed the sums specified in Schedule A , and set opposite the names of the aforesaid persons respectively."

The persons named in Schedule A of this Act are listed below in alphabetical order. Schedule A gave name, regiment or corps,  rank, district in which claim admitted (that is, district in which person living when made claim in 1889-1890), and amount recommended by the Governor for remission. Those names marked with an * are explained below.

Schedule B of the Act stated:

                                              REMISSION CERTIFICATE

This is to certify that                       , whose name appears in the Schedule A to the above Act, is entitled by virtue of this certificate, issued in pursuance of such Act, to a remission of (symbol for English pounds)      in the purchase of land in any part of the colony.

This certificate shall not be exercisable in payment for land other than land set apart for occupation by naval and military settlers or Volunteers, and it shall be barred unless exercised on or before the thirty-first day of March, one thousand eight hundred and ninety-four."

For the purpose of settling claims  and "..to encourage settlement..." the Governor was to set aside in each land district lands to be surveyed in sections of suitable size, to group the sections  into allotments for selection by holders of remission certificates and to fix a price for the allotments.  The holder of a certificate could apply to the local Land Board to select an allotment whose value didn't exceed the value of his certificate. The certificates could only be used to purchase such set aside land. As can be seen from the list below the amounts recommended ranged from 15 pounds to 200 pounds. The 1891 Act also extended time for making claims from 31 December 1890 to 30 June 1892.  

A further Naval and Military Settlers' and Volunteers' Land Act was passed in 1892 to reconcile differences between the approaches taken by different commissioners in investigating claims and again extending the time limit for making claims until 31 March 1893.

This 1892 Act also added 2 further grounds for making a claim in addition to the 5 grounds set out in the 1889 Act. The 2 additional grounds were:

(6) All persons who served in New Zealand and who retired from Her Majesty's Naval or Military Service with a good character for the purpose of settling in New Zealand at any time before the thirty-first day of December, one thousand eight hundred and seventy-two, and who prior to such date have so settled and resided in any part of New Zealand;

(7) Also all persons who retired from Her Majesty's Naval and Military Service with a good character for the purpose of settling in New Zealand at any time before the thirty-first day of December, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-eight."

This Act authorised the Colonial Treasurer to issue debentures for the same monetary value for any unexercised remission certificates granted under the 1891 Act and the Treasurer could issue debentures instead of remission certificates under this 1892 Act

A Schedule listed further names entitled to such debentures or remission certificates and the names listed in the 1892 Act are marked below with an *. The 1892 Act did not give rank as had the 1891 Act.

A Naval and Military Claims Settlement and Extinguishment Act was passed in 1896 with a view to a final settlement of these claims. The Act authorised the appointment of a Commissioner for the whole colony to inquire into outstanding claims. These supplementary claims were referred to in a report to a Parliamentary committee by the Commissioner in 1898 with a decision to recommend or reject.

The Acts of Parliament referred to above are available in major city libraries in New Zealand.  Also available in major libraries are the Appendices to the Journals of the House of Representatives. The Appendices are generally available for each year and are divided into sections which are listed alphabetically, e.g., I-7, H-50,etc.Listed below are the Appendices I have located on this topic of the military settlers' and volunteers.. The 1894 Journal reference given in paragraph (e) below has approximately 45 pages listing the names of men whose applications for remission certificates were declined and giving the reasons.

(a) 1889 Appendix: I-7;

(b) 1890 Appendix: Vol. III: H-51

(c) 1891 Appendix: Vol. IV: I-6;

(d) 1892 Appendix: Vol. IV: I-8;

(e) 1894 Appendix: Vol. III: H-23 to 23B.

The files holding the applications and accompanying evidence submitted by the former servicemen listed below as receiving remission certificates or debentures are now held by Archives New Zealand in Wellington. Unfortunately the Archives New Zealand files are not indexed and it is a matter of going through old boxes looking for the person you are interested in. It appears that not all persons named in the Acts of Parliament are there.

Archives New Zealand has a book at its Wellington office counter entitled "Family Archives at the National Archives" which it published in 1990 and in the military records section of that book (about p.111) there is reference to these applications with handwritten notes as to the Archives New Zealand file references.

As can be seen from the list below there was a great variety of military units which took part in the New Zealand Wars. A number were local volunteers from towns from around New Zealand and this is reflected in names such as the Clutha Rifles, the Te Awamutu Cavalry Volunteers, the Auckland Naval Volunteers and the Christchurch Rifle Volunteers.

Other units were the British regular army regiments stationed in New Zealand at the time such as the 12th, 57th and 65th Regiments. The Colonial Defence Force was a permanent force consisted of approx. 500 cavalrymen.

The Forest Rangers were a small permanent force intended as a bush fighting unit. Together with hand picked regulars the Rangers formed part of the "Moveable Column" formed in September 1863. The Column was intended to hunt Maori raiding parties in the bush and destroy them.

In the 1891 and 1892 Acts the names are listed by province. In this webpage I have listed the names in alphabetical order to make searching easier and included the province name in a separate column.
