Kia ora Nell,
He was the chief that sold Waitohi (Picton). Check out the book, As high as the hills as he is talked about a lot in that book. from memory there is also a memorial for him in Waikawa, Picton. If you need further information contact me, as i live in Waikawa and am more than willing to help.
