    History & Achievements :

    He came to New Zealand on board HMS Herald arriving at the Bay of Islands N.Z  on the 29th of Jan. 1840  as an escort with WILLIAM HOBSON to set up THE TREATY of WAITANGI [ New Zealand's founding document]  He  was wounded quelling a riot between Maoris and Whalers and repatriated back to Australia and discharged on a pension.

    Death

    "WARD-- On the 23rd May, at Paten Patrick WARD, formally of H.M. 28th Foot, and latterly sergeant in the Taranaki Military Settlers" (2)  (Taranaki 1875 : P.2 )

     
     An Old Veteran
    "An Old Veteran -- Our Patea Correspondent writes that there died at Carlyle,  on the 23rd of May, Patrick Ward, formerly of Her Majesty's 28th Regiment, and Latterly a sergeant in the Taranaki Military Settlers. The deceased came from Sydney with Governor Hobson, to the Bay of Islands,  and happened to be the man to hoist the British Flag on that occasion. It is to be hoped that the Government will make some small allowance for the support of his two little children, who are now orphans; the eldest members of the family being able to earn their own living.  ( Rather Premature) (3)  ( Herald 1875  p 5 )
