Looking for whanau with the surname PETLEY, or KINGI that are related to me. I have only found out recently that I am of Maori descent and that my ggggrandmother married ggggdandfather English man. I believe that Mere Kingi (ggggrandmother) was from ngati awa and also ngati maru. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Kia Ora
Cheryl Beattie, nee Petley.
