This page gives a brief history of Te Rauparaha's taupo pa at Plimmerton, in Porirua City.
After Te Rauparaha's capture and the retreat of his nephew, Te Rangihaeata, following the fight at Battle Hill the pa was slowly abandoned and became farmland. The principal Maori villages after this time were Takapuwahia and Te Urukahika.
Te Rangihaeata wrote the following waiata lamenting Te Rauparaha's capture.
