I add -

Journal of Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland,
Volume 15, 1886, page 192

"The Origin, Physical Characteristics, and Manners and Customs
of the Maori Race"

http://www.jstor.org/view/09595295/dm995266/99p0368g/0

"Whatever may have been the original course of their migration there
can be no doubt that the Maoris owe their origin to the Malay stock."
