Tena Koe Uriana

If you go to www.familysearch.org and put Matehaere in the surname and set the country to New Zealand you will find records there for Matehaere, If you go through the records you may be able find something to start at.

Also there is a large listing if you put the surname Wharemate in, where most of the names are associated with Tautoro, which is just out of Kaikohe, Far North.

Note though that not all information in the familysearch site is accurate, but it is a place to start

Good luck Uriana, I hope from these searches it gives you a starting point to go from.

Tena Koe Uriana,

To add to what peralau has suggested, make sure you are in the Whakapapa Club then click Full Search. If you do one search for Matehaere and another search for Wharemate, you will get results, including people in the Email Directory who you could contact.

Good luck and let us know how you get on

Nau te raurau,

Kia ora cuz, my name is Kerrin Weston, my koro was born Tika Wetini Matehaere, the only son of Tewetini Matehaere and Waikauri 2 Wharemate. At school the pakeha teachers couldn't pronounce his name Tika Wetini and decided to change it to the more english sounding Digga Weston. He and his sisters, as youngsters were brought up at a place I know as the boat shed, which is a cave down Puketapu beach near Pihama Taranak,in fact if you get a map of Taranaki and look up a place called Weston bay it should lead you right there. Tewetini was given the task of carer of the kaimoana, when you dived for a kai, it was he that told you where the best spot is, one that he had been saving for this season and which spots to leave alone, so it may replenish itself for the next season. Sadly both Wetini and Waikauri passed away of a disease, something similar to the plague which passed though Taranaki. Though my resources are still not 100% positive of what happened to them, we do know the kids (my koro and his sisters) were then brought up with their koro and nana, Wharemate Tuarea and Te Awe, who were Waikauri's parents. If you have any other queries cuz just email me and I'll get back to you.

Kia ora, its just Kerrin again, Uriana are you uncle Westons daughter, as the only Campbells I know that are related to us living in the sth Island are his children. If so, I'm uncle Warrens son. I'm pretty sure I'm on the mark here, that would make you my second cousin, my dad and your dad are 1st cousins but also whangai brothers, as my dad who is a Weston was brought up by his aunty, Rangiwhaia Campbell nee Wetini and her husband uncle Joe Campbell, who he knew as his mum and dad.
