  • Wi Ropata is listed as killed in 'Journal of Events’ dated 1 July published in The Taranaki Herald 7 July 1860. Prickett (2005) notes the identification of ‘Wi Ropata’ is doubtful, since he also turns up among those said to have been killed at Huirangi early in 1861, and cannot have been killed twice.

    Wi Ropata, one of Wi Kingi’s leading men, and a man of considerable influence in the Ngatiawa was reported killed in the 'Journal of Events' dated 14 February and published in The Taranaki Herald 16 February 1861, and his death confirmed in The Taranaki Herald of 23 February 1861.

    Grayling (1862:93; Fig. 3) reports the death at Te Arei of, ‘Wi Ropata, Wi Kingi’s brother –Ngatiawa
