Claim No. 660, G.P. Judd, Honolulu, August 31, 1847
F.R. 102v2

Gentlemen: I take the present occasion to lay before you for adjudication, agreeably with the laws, the following claims to land.

1st. I claim a piece of land in Waikiki called Pawaa. It was given me in 1839 by the King, through Kaikeoewa, who offered it to me of his own accord, as a reward for my services rendered to his Majesty as Physician. The only witness to the gift that I know of now living is George Sandwich. I have been in possession ever since I received the land. It consists of 1st kalo land in the valley of Makiki adjoining John Ii's land; and extends quite across the little valley. There are one or two tenants on the kalo ground, placed there by myself.
[Margin note: this lot relinquished July 9, 1853, See page 468v3]

2d. land on the road to Waikiki, at present enclosed according to the native boundaries, and containing 12 acres, more or less of pasture ground. When I received this piece, the greater part was an unproductive marsh, the rest completely destitute of vegetation, except a few cocoa not trees. I have expended more than a thousand dollars in enclosures, ploughing, draining &c. &c, and at the present time, the land has become valuable.
Board of Land Commissioners, &c. &c.
Signed, &c. G.P. Judd

George, sworn by the Word of God and stated, "Kaikioewa, the governor of Kauai had given that place called Kewalo to Judd while he (governor) was living at Pawaa. We went together with Kaikioewa and G.P. Judd on a car to look at this land and found it to be marsh land. It was surrounded by a fence. G.P. Judd had acquired it in the 1822 or 3, perhaps. I have not known anyone ever objected to him."

John Ii, sworn by the Word of God and stated, "My testimony for G.P. Judd's property is the same as George's testimony just given here. The boundaries are as follows:

Waikiki Street is on the Ewa side
The government site, toward the mountain, also my patches and the coconut grove belonging to Kuakuaaka. This place has been enclosed with two houses in it and some coconut (trees) also. There is a lele also in the upland of Makiki;
A stream on the Waikiki side
Kauliokamoa's land, toward the mountain
Manoa Street, Ewa and Keawehano's land is on the oceanside.

This is a taro land. There are three koele* patches and many more for the common people."
