A Government Land Purchase file

The Balfour Estate file at Wellington National Archives was a substantial one and dated 1914 - 1957. In the end the land was not purchased. I've imaged some of the files (appox 25%) to give you an idea of what such a file might contain.


  • The file contains a note from Sir Keith Holyoak.
  • A reply to Sir Keith Holyoaks letter.
  • Descriptions of the land by various officials.
  • A letter from the owner, Mr Williamson of Christchurch.
  • The 1914 official land to be taken for settlement notice.
  • Maps.
