LOOKING FOR THE HENRY WHANAU
Kia ora Takerei,
This may be a long shot but have you tried the www.whitepages.co.nz as it lists Henry's living around the areas you mention. Also, www.oldfriends.co.nz and www.familysearch.org might be able to assist.
I say "long shot" because the Henry name is common and very well dispersed across the country. I have two lines of Henry (Henare) through my whanau - mainly from the Northland area.
All the best.
There used to be HENRY at Tahuna, not that far from Kerepehi, closer to Te Aroha, north of Morrinsville and east from Huntly. I met a "GingerPop HENRY" who was from there - now dec'd, apparently. That HENRY family used to be friends with my partner's family, who are from Pukehou, Central Hawke's Bay. When his (my partner's) brother died the HENRY family took his tupapaku to the marae at Tahuna and he was buried there, also.
Kia ora, you must be Ngati Hako, I suggest if you are that you contact Te Kupenga o Ngati Hako in Paeroa who should link you to the Paeroa Henry's. Im a Takerei what's your mum and dads names?, there are some Takerei's buried at Kerepehi and they are mainly from Tirohia Marae in Paeroa married into the family through the Rikirangi whanau, make any sense?
Kia ora, Im a Henry from Te Hoi o Tainui area in Tahuna but brought up in Tuhoe. I too am looking for my whanau whakapapa maybe we are linked somewhere along the lines? My father was John Tangaroawhai Henry(deceased). I was given a name to contact for whakapapa purposes in Tahuna, her name is "Nanny Rangiwaru" not to sure of the last name though i think she is a Wiki (not sure!) hope this helps. Good luck
