John Wallis Barnicoat (1814-1905) was employed by the New Zealand Company as a surveyor in the Nelson region. In 1844 Barnicoat, together with Fredrick Tuckett surveyed the east coast of the South Island as far as Stewart Island to find a suitable site for the 'New Edinburgh settlement'. This journal is a remarkable record of his travels in the South Island and contains a number of sketches. This is one of Waikouaiti Bay.
