Takapuna History

The Māori place name Takapuna originally referred to a freshwater spring that flowed from the base of North Head into a swamp behind Cheltenham Beach.
In 1841 the wife of Eruera Maihi Patuone sold 9500 acres of Auckland’s North Shore to the Crown.
Referred to as Takapuna Parish, the North Shore was surveyed and subdivided in 1844.
