Resided in Ngati Kahungunu Iwi. married Kaka Christy/Christie.
we are unsure of his whakapapa/hapu/iwi. we know more about his wife's whanau which goes back to Rongomaiwahine.
Anyone who came across his name i would like to get ahold of.
the Kingi name is quite wide over Aotearoa, maybe you know something.
My Grandfather was the late Tihema Dawson Kingi, My Grandmother was the late Kataraina Kaimoana, Did you know either of them... If so I just want to know how closely related are we to the Edwards family in Gisborne... Have met someone by the name of John Edwards age 41. They have family with the Kingi name It would be much appreciated if you could help please Thankyou for your time... Shirley...

just in regard to the Edwards in Gisborne, my Grandmother married Wi Pere Edwards his father is Pani Edwards who married Te Mana Moanaroa Pere (Wi Pere Trust Gisborne www.wipere.co.nz) unfortunately we have no whakapapa further back from Pani. My grandfather along with all his brothers and sisters were born in Gisborne. so there might be a connection there somewhere. Uncanning to say that my father is John Parker Edwards too age 65. However he was named after a relative John Pakka Edwards. so i'm thinking maybe there is a connection. As all our name sakes of the John name are not of that age group so i know it's not them.
From Pani forward i pretty much know the whakapapa, having attend alot of reunion in the last 5/6 years of my grandfather. we have meet the last surviving aunties of him from Gisborne also most of there whanau as well.
I'm also looking for his (Pani) whakapapa and it's posted so i hope John Maybe able to shed some light.

Kia Ora material, he paatai noa iho teenei, but have you ever thought of asking some of your whaanau in Wairoa about Kingi Rotoaatara or his parents..Riria Horehore & Karaitiana Rotoaatara? Someone that apparently does know his whakapapa as we have been told is Paora Whaanga. Apparently Karaitiana is descended from one of Rakaipaaka's sons, I think offhand it was Whakapirikura.
Heoi, Karaitianas parents were Kino & Maraetaha (f) & he had 3 sisters, Erina, Mihi & Haromi. Kino is descended from Tuwhakataka & Ngarue according to Maori Land Court.
As for the Pani Edwards whakapapa, I attended a wananga at Rongopai for the Wi Pere whaanau & I think a little korero came out about Panis background.
Heoi, kia korero ano taua.
Ma te wa.
