BROTT, George: Whakapapa information
Tena koutou katoa.ko adrian hubbard toku ingoa.george brott is my great great grandfather.his daughter emma,married harry walter hubbard,of whom are my great grandparents.i am looking for information about my whakapapa.looking at finding out what my waka,maunga,iwi,moana,etc are.it is my understanding that we are from ngati pukenga desent,and our marae is whetu o te rangi but am not sure.if any one can help me with my journey in regards to knowledge,or knowing who i can contact,i would be very greatful.
Tena koe Adrian, ko Josi Pitman ahau, am just wondering if its the same person. My great grandfathers name was George Brott. We have been unable to find any info on his wife but we know that she came from Ngati Pukenga. George Brott had a daughter Matilda, who was my grandmother.Not sure if this is of any help.
Tena Korua, Adrian and Josi. George Brott married Kawhena Te Moananui aka Kitty Moore aka Wikitoria Moore of Ngati Pukenga descent. She is buried at the homestead at Tamaterau in Whangarei. It has been a while since I went there but the couple who lived there had a copy of a photo of George William. The photo of Kawhena was given to my mother and myself, we passed this on to Aunty Wikitoria Kake to be gifted to Whetu o te Rangi
Kia ora Adrian, koutou ko Josi ko Tanya.. George Brott and Kawhena Te Moananui are tipuna of mine and yes we are Ngati Pukenga. Adrian we have Ngati Pukenga reunions every couple of years. I will keep your email address and contact you when the next one is advertised. Kawhena and my great grandmother were sisters. Nga mihi, Whakarongotai
