Hi, my names Taimana

My father is watene jury, now watene bell. He didnt raise me, so I know pretty much nothing about this branch of my family. He has a brother called honty. He goes by Wati i think, Iv only spent time him a handful of times. Im from Timaru, now in Wellington. The Jurys Im related too are in the gisbourne area. Ive been told that they originate from masterton.

I dont know what I want from any information i may get from this, I geuss it would be nice too know something about this part of me which i know nothing of.

My name is Tracie Chadwick, my paternal grandmother was TeNuia Jury from Waiarapa Coast you could start from Featherstone. I am in the middle of researching my kui wahnau as she died just after giving birth to my dad. TeNuia was an only child but had heaps of cuzzies. I hope this helps you

Hi, Taimana

>My father is watene jury, now watene bell.

Are you still there? I know your father - he is my partner's first cousin. She knows much of the (Bell) family history.
