Can anyone help. My nanny is Riana Kereopa ( born about 1837) and she married Tame Brown of Manaia Coromandel.

I don't know for sure if my nanny is related to the Kereopa whanau of Raglan.

Tena koe wyllie,

Make sure you are in the Whakapapa Club and click Full Search putting Kereopa in the Search box.

There are quite a few results that may help.

Good luck and let us know how you get on

kia ora ano wyllie,

If you go to www.familysearh.org and put Riana in the firstname, Kereopa in the Lastname and set the country to New Zealand you will find a bit of info for your nanny.

You can then search for all of the children one by one, just change the firstname, keep Brown as the lastname and the country as New Zealand.

Note, not all info in that site is accurate!

kia ora Kayatania.Kei te pehea a koe?
Kei te pai ahau.Tino harikoa taku ngakau i tenei wa.
Can you find out for me if Riana Kereopa is in your line at all?
My nanny Riana is a very hard person to find.
She married my koro Tame Brown from Manaia and I don't know where she was from.
My aunty Riana Brown married Ned Leef and that's how the name has stayed in our whanau.
If you can find any links I'd really appreciate it.
My email address is catu@westnet.com.au

Kia Ora Te Aroha,
Haeata's father (Tame) and grandmother (Pongarauhine) are descended principally from Ngati Kahungunu and Rakaipaaka lines from the Mahia Peninsular area. There are also strong connections to the tribal groupings of Ruapani (a very early paramount chief from turanganui-a-Kiwa, or Gisborne), Ngati Porou (East Coast), Rongowhakaata (Giosborne) and Rongomaiwahine (Wairoa). I dont have too much information on Riana Kereopa's parents although they are bound to be Manaia (Ngati Maru) people. Riana Kereopa died in 1899. I have it that your Nanny and Tame had seven children, not five. There is one Brown who has returned home to Coromandel who would know more. Her husband Sam wrote the Sailor Brown Family reunion Book in 1992. This is where I am getting this information. I'll try and pass on your email address to her. Hope this helps.

Monique
P.s. I found my book!

My grandfather was Hakere Brown=Henarietta
Papa Sailor was my grandfather's brother and I remember hearing about his exploits on Te Kouma Bay. Papa Sailor was a great fisherman and I think that's how he got his nickname. Thanks again keep in touch.
