Tena koe.
Eli Manukau was of Ngati Mahuta through his tupuna Keho and Kuku. The patriarch of the Manukau whanau was Taumata Ngawhare who lived in the mid to late 1800s. The whanau kind of dispersed when Waikato fled into Nehenehenui (Maniapoto).
On their return to their tribal grounds many years later, a number opted to live at Te Pahu, Paterangi and Whatawhata, while the remainder lived in the various papakainga along the length of the Waikato awa. Some of their historical tribal areas were Tarahanga island (north of Rangiriri, and a little north also of the stream to lake Whangape), Huntly and Taupiri.
A little more explanations and some whakapapa of Eli and his brothers are in my possession at this time.
Kia ora

Tena koe Delia
I apologise for not responding much quicker to your request to make contact- have only just come back on board, as Waikato are preparing for the 40th anniversary of Te Ataairangikaahu and I am involved, albeit in a small way to making things happen for 2006.
Insofar as your tupuna Eli is concerned, I saw Toi some time back when I was in Ngaruawahia but had no chance to converse. Eli had several brothers but it would be prudent if I were to forward his whakapapa direct via e-m, coupled with explanatory notes as most names and places might get confusing considering the length of your domicile o/seas.
Expect it in about 2 weeks.
Kia ora
Romi

Kia Ora dee74t

I dont know if this helps much but I knew of some who lived in Te Awamutu when i was a little child growing up, they had much to do with our whanau as they all worked together in the woolshed. They lived on corner Teasdale and Princess Street, Their son Wayne Manukau died of a tragic accident involving a railway crossing by the Dairy factory (heading towards our place)and after that i think they moved away to Ngaruawahia. I only remember Lyn Manukau as she was a good friend of Mums.
Kia ora Kaye-kaye
