The site of Wellington was settled in 1840 by emigrants from Britain brought there by the New Zealand Company. In 1865, Wellington became the capital of New Zealand, superseding Auckland (The only reason for this was that Wellington had a more central location between the two main islands). It's named for Arthur Wellesley, the first duke of Wellington.
