  • The large scale cadastrel maps or Public Counter Record Map Index cover North Cape to Mercer. These contain a list of parishes (a.k.a. administrative units / survey district) names, with a Parish Locator in the front listing parishes alphabetically with a survey block reference. Ask the staff for the Index to Maori Blocks (maori land), or the Parish Register (european land). Blocks/parishes are listed alphabetically, and include survey plans and plans for each allotment. They are in chronological order, with the lower numbers representing earlier plans.
  • There is a list of early general maps at the Puna Korero Whenua. Among the holdings are the Roll Plans, 6 maps put out about 1860, which show all surveys to that date for the whole of North Auckland.
  • Black and white photocopies of all these maps and others can be bought from the University of Auckland's Geographic Library.
