Mrs Pe Awhimape Broughton
MRS Pe Awhimape Broughton died in Hastings last June, aged 72.
Mrs Broughton was the wife of the late George Broughton. During most of their married life they lived in Hawera. Mr Broughton died some 25 years ago.
Mrs Broughton was a daughter of Mr Ned Kershaw, whose grandfather, a Pakeha, fought in the early Maori-Pakeha wars. Her mother was born in Hawkes Bay.
A highly respected member of the community, Mrs Broughton worked hard as a member of the Women's Tribal Committee.
She is survived by seven children and more than 30 grandchildren.

Pouaru Paratene Broughton, popularly known as Tony Broughton of Waimarama, died on May 25, at the age of 41. He was the only son of Mrs Toko Paratene and the late Mr Paratene Broughton, and was descended from leading chiefs in Hawke's Bay.
He was born in Hastings and educated at the Waimarama Maori School, and was a member of the Ngati Whakaiti and the Ngati Whakaue tribes.
Mr Broughton was interested in all kinds of sports and was an ardent church worker, irrespective of denomination.
He was buried at the Waimarama Maori Cemetery.

Among the nurses to graduate at the recent graduation at Hawera Public Hospital was staff nurse Olive Broughton, thought to be the first local Maori to graduate at the Hawera Hospital.
The superintendent, Dr Berry, remarked that of the three graduates, one was an old New Zealander…a Maori…one a new New Zealander…Dutch…and one a pakeha New Zealander.
An association of ‘Friends of Turakina Maori Girls’ College’ was launched recently with Miss M. Middlemis of Marton as secretary. The association, which has over 300 members will carry out work similar to Parent-Teachers' Associations and is at present raising money for basketball courts, and a new front fence.

in my last reply i was sure you were looking for my uncle but now wander if you may have been looking for my brother Robert Broughton, who also died of cancer in 2004-5 aged 40+. There are 4 of us, phillip, leon, patricia or pattie and myself, gail. i was bought up away from my whanau so my taranaki connections are limited. I can see that these dates dont match what you already know but my gut feeling is telling me that you are whanau. cant wait to hear back.
