Early Traders in New Zealand

From the time that the New South Wales convict settlement was established in Australia in 1788, European and American traders appeared in New Zealand, establishing trading posts to barter with Maori for dressed flax and Kauri timber. Whaling and Sealing ships in need of fresh water and produce provided further trading opportunities for Maori, with whom traders could form trading networks.
