A marble tablet commemorates Lieutenant George Phillpotts who was killed in the Maori Wars in New Zealand in July 1845.

In 1840, the British Crown entered into the Treaty of Waitangi with a number of Maori chiefs. That treaty set out certain conditions for the British occupation of New Zealand and still dominates race relationships in that country. From 1843 to 1848, the First Maori War was conducted between the British and certain Maori groups that rejected the implementation of the Treaty of Waitangi.
