Marsden's Mate - Hongi was hosted by Rev. Samuel Marsden in Parramatta

A solid day of on-site research in Parramatta, Australia - visiting Marsden's Mill, St John's Cathedral with the pounamu gifted to Rev. Samuel Marsden, by Maori, on his passing in 1838, and paying respects to Rev Marsden at St John's Cemetery. Hongi Hika was hosted by Marsden during his two visits to Port Jackson (Sydney) in 1815, and again in 1821.
