New Zealand Company agent William Fox painted Guards Bay (now Kākāpō Bay) in the summer of 1847–48. It includes whaler Jacky Guard’s house, where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed June 1840, and the grave of Ngāti Toa woman Kuika Rangiawa. The wife of English-born local trader James Wynen, Kuika and the couple’s two children were murdered in 1842. Shockingly, the ex-convict whaler responsible was acquitted.
