Pirimona, Watene or Tamatea - Hako Dolly  

Active Member

Married Charles Lemnos Dewes late of Ngati Porou ki Pare Hauraki (Kerepehi). Trying to trace my mothers ancestry and need urgent assistance from whanau, friends or anyone who may have some imformation. Hako Dolly Pirimona, Hako Dolly Watene, or Hako Dolly Tamatea are some of the names that have surfaced during our (whanau) search and it is quite frustrating to come so close only to be pushed further back by the advent of these new names. The first name signifies that she is from Ngati Hako but she was also known as Pirimona's Daughter. She had a brother who lived in Thames but we are unsure of his name also. If you can assist us then we would be grateful.
