My name is June Nathan (nee Peters)and I'm trying to trace the Whanau of Pita Te Haara & Rihi Borrowdale/Murray, who lived in Takahue, Kaitaia. My grandfather Reihana Pita Te Haara is just 1 of 10 siblings.My father Nopera Pita was one of many children brought up by Kane & Moka Murray in Takahue. Over the years our surname has changed from Te Haara to Pita then Peters, the reason for this is not known, but you can imagine what I'm up against.
Other Whanau members were:
Kataraine, Akinihi, Tia, Wi, Ngawini, Mohi, Hermaia, Rutaina and Kane.
My aim in finding Whanau is to meet whanau in person and to complete my whakapapa.
If any Whanau members read this or if anyone knows of them, please get in touch with me
Thank You
June

The Murray whanau would be from Whangapae ki Hokianga, and the Te Haara whanau from Ngawha near Kaikohe.

Tena Koe June,
What would the connection between us be? My great great grandmother was Kataraina Pita of Takahue who married Samuel Yates, They had my great grandmother Martha who married Frank Morey. One of my questions was what is the connection between the Pita and the Murray whanau, did they just marry into each other, before I started researching this line my father seemed to think that Martha's mother was a Murray but I have yet to find the name Murray in our whakapapa. If you know the connection would you be able to tell me who the parents of Katarina Pita was? looking forward to hearing from you,
Varnya

My grandmother was Ngawini Pita who married Captain John Harrison from Dargaville. I have very close links with the Murray whanau of Takahue and I remember Uncle Moka and Aunty Kane very well. We spent a lot of time at the homestead in Takahue. I have misplaced the Murray whakapapa book at the moment but you may contact me by email and yes Uncle Moka and Aunty Kane were cousins. I don't know a lot about the Peter whanau but there is a lot of the same whanau buried in Moerewa cemetary, but I do know a lot about the Murray whanau. Your tupuna Rihi Peters (the mother of those siblings you mention) is buried in Takahue, Heio ano ka nui aku korero mo tenei wa. My name is also Ngawini so you can contact me through my daughters email: donnamuru@xtra.co.nz

I have a patai and it is this: How did the Borrowdale whanau name come into the Murray whanau. Was her last name Borrowdale or Murray? I too would like to know, because my g-grandmother was Nanny Ruhaina and her mother Rihi as well. Thank you very much (yes, sonujewels2003 is my sister, kia ora sissy!)

Kia ora esrayrakete - in relation to your patai "How did the Borrowdale whanau name come into the Murray whanau". Back in 1837 Alfred John Borrowdale of Scottish descent travelled to NZ and took on his mothers' maiden name "Murray" hence the beginning of the Borrowdale-Murray dynasty. Alfred John Borrowdale Murray went on to marry Kataraina Hone Te Koni and from this union there were 13 tamariki
