Atkins,Akena, Whanau: Finding family.
Kia ora Korua,
I am descended from the Banks whanau from Tikapa, who I think are related to the Atkins. I am also researching our whakapapa. My Nan Hiki Bartlett (nee Banks) is from Tikapa. My great grandfather, or great uncle, Alfred Banks was married to Harata Ngatai, daughter of Heni Atkins and Wi Ngatai. Ko Ngati Pokai toku hapu. Ko Pokai toku marae.
Kia Ora aku whanaunga. Ko Hoana Taare au. Ko taku papa ko Whakahihi Taare, ko taku mama ko Tawhai Te Maro. Ko taku kuia ko Mere Grant i moe kia Ahipene Te Maro. Ko taku kuia ko Maraea Atkins i moe iaia Ko Tame Atkins. Hoana Te Maro Parata bought me up at Tikapa. Ko Pokai ano au.
I'm one of the twins and my twin sister was Mate.
I was born in 1926. Would like to hear from some of my whanaunga. Phone number: 07 3455378.
Kia ora koutou,
Does anyone know of a marriage or maori customary marriage between Polly (Pare) Te Oti Hill or Hira (born 1889 Whitianga ) to an Atkins member. They were living in australia before she left to go to the USA.Polly was the second child of Whareherehere Anaru Mataki and Roger Hill. Possibly she may also have been married to a mr Hodge before Mr Atkins. Kia ora.
