The Pacific Journal of Adam Ewing is written on a voyage home from the Chatham Islands.

The ten islands that form the Chatham Islands have belonged to New Zealand since 1842. They are located approximately 800km east of New Zealand. Only the two main islands are inhabited. The present inhabitants have European, Maori and Moriori origins.

William R. Broughton visited the largest island in 1791 in HMS Chatham, giving the island its current name.
