EDMONDS WHANAU.

Kia ora whanau.
I am trying to trace my children's Tupuna, John Edmonds. He arrived in New Zealand around the early to middle 1900's. He settled in the far North. His mokopuna were Tamanuhiri and Rueben. I do not know the others. But I do know there were more. Tamanuhiri, also known as Piwi was killed in a bulldozer accident in Te Araroa.

If you can help, I would be very grateful.

Na Ihipera Edmonds.

My GGGG Grandfather was John Samuel Edmonds (1799-1865). He arrived in Kerikeri NZ in 1833 & helped finish the Stone Store. I beleive he had a son Reuben born in about 1844 at Paitai, Northland, NZ. If this is the same one I have more info if you like.

I am also a descendant of John Edmond. My Great Grandfather Henry was one of his sons. I have a copy of the book written for the reunion held to mark the 150th anniversary of John and Maryanne's arrival in the Bay Of islands. There is not a lot of info about Reuben "The Rover" in it but can type up what it does have if you would like it.

Hi. thank you so much for responding to my request.

The Rueben I know was born in the early 1930's. I believe he was named after the same person. I would be very grateful for more information. If this is correct then you would whanau to my children, William (25) Merearihi (20) Henipeepi (19) Shekinah (18) and Chakakhan (17) We would be very grateful for any information you may have.

Warm Regards
Ihipera

HI Vibrant

Thank you for responding also to our request (i.e. my children and I). Rueben's brother was Tamanuhiri, AKA Piwi. He married my children's grandmother; Henipeepi Akuhata Brown from Te Araroa. Her mother was a Collier /Stirling from Te Araroa as well.

I would appreciate any information that may help. We plan to travel through down to the far North one day to trace family.

Kind regards
Ihipera

Kia ora Whanau,

Jus wondering if Maraea Edmonds is related to those Tipuna's, I heard she lived over 100 years old, is that the same one? if so who was her mother? and how do you get the book. haha, sounds pretty interesting, awesome to see Edmonds.

We can't live on love and pipi's alone.

Tena koutou te Whanau!!!! My name is Arongo Te Whiu and my mother is Babara Edmonds and I am also a desendant of John Tucker Edmonds. I was fortunate enough to be present at the Edmonds Family reunion back in the 80's. I know that there was a book that showed how we were all connected as our family history weaves in and out of the european and maori world. To my knowledge Maraea was a Pekama from Ngawha..Just going on what I have heard as my mothers younger sister is named after her. We have a Homestead in Ngawha along the main road heading towards Kaikohe from Auckland. There are photos of our tupuna there. I have a feeling that our whanau has grown immensly since 1985 and maybe its time to update the whakapapa tree???

Kia Ora to all the Edmonds whanau. Here are some of the descendants of John Edmonds taken from the book 'Wharekahika, a history of Hicks Bay' written by Lloyd Lawson.

GRAHAM PAPAKA (NANAKIA) EDMONDS
ERANA KAWA AHURIRI-POTAE
John Edmonds and his wife Mary settled in the Kerikeri area around the mid 1800s. Their son John Tucker Edmonds married Raiha Pekama and the couple had 21 children. The youngest, Graham Papaka Edmonds (Nanakia) moved to Hicks bay at the age of 14 with a Ngapuhi bush-felling gang. At the age of 21, he married Erana Kawa Ahuriri-Potae and the couple raised 15 children, Pani, Graham (Sonny), Piwi, William, Milton, Brian, Reuben, Cecilia, Hannah, George, Alice, Susan, Mark (Bill) and Esther.

Kia ora Donna , I think Aroha Island is located somewhere up the kerikeri river, as I lived on an island called : Old Womans Island when I was only about 1 or 2 yrs old. and I remember my mum mentioning something about her tupuna being buried there (I think Matilda Edmonds was buried there.? )
