Summary:
This publication was commissioned by the Petone Borough Council to mark the centenary of European settlement in the area and the jubilee of the Petone Borough. Petone became the site of the first planned settlement by Europeans in New Zealand when the New Zealand Company set up the town of Britannia on the banks of the Hutt River in 1840. The town only lasted a few months, the settlers relocating to Thorndon after the river flooded. Petone started to develop again in the 1870's after the railway came through and became a significant industrial area.
