Kia ora Fiona,

I also am a descendant of Hohepa huria. Your great grandmother Hutika was the eldest of 2 children of Hohepa and Katarina Pau. Hinewetea was her sister. Hutika married (1) Rereti, (2) Silk and also (3) Murry Crofts. She had 6 children Tokotowhare Silk, George Silk, Colin Silk to her 2nd marriage and Hapa Ngau Crofts, Raymond Crofts and Edward Crofts to her 3rd marriage. If you would like to know more, I have the entire descendants of Hohepa Huriomana Huria as well.
