My grandmother was Kumeroa Rarere from Mahia, and her brothers and sisters were, Materoa, Reretapua, Te Paea, Pango, Te Teira (1), Hera, Raiha, Matetoa or might be Materoa (2),Makuini, Hami Koroni, Matekino,and Ataria Te Teira (2),
These are some of the names of their spouses: ?Hokena?, ?Cunningham, Winiata (my koro last name), ?Hoepo, ?Rahapa?, ?Wainohu and Irihapeti
Are there any descendants from any of the names above, I have met some whanau from Ataria Te Teira. I know that there were a couple of Rarere reunions in the past, but I missed them, and I did get to meet Uncle Bob Rarere but I didn't know who he was at the time, and I'm not sure whether he was my uncle or granduncle, my dad's sisters called him uncle Bob.
Kia Ora Kiriwai,have you tried the Mormon Temple at Nuhaka,they have records dating wayyy back,My Grandmother is a Tawera from Nuhaka and we are related to the Rarere family,My mum was brought up in Mahia,good luck
Kia ora Huria, thanks for your info, I do have my nanny's whakapapa, but it was all her nieces and nephews whanau that live here and overseas. And are there any (Rarere whanau) that live in the Wellington, Porirua area.
Kia Ora Kiriwai
Te Paea was my Tane"s Grandmother she was married to Pura Thomas Cuningham from Manutuke Marae. They settled in Matahiwi,Bridge Pa and Whakatu in the Hastngs area and had several children, none of whom are living.Their daughter Matarita Pukepuke was my Mother-in-law. Te Paea is buried in the Urupa at Bridge Pa and Pura is buried in the RSA section of the Hastings cemetary. There is a plaque honouring Pura at the Gisborne RSA. There are several Mokopuna, Mokopuna tuarua and Mokopuna tuatoru, many who still live in the Hastings Rohe. My Tane has two brothers who live in the Wellington area one in Waitangirua and one in Mirimar as well as brothers and sisters in Hastings. We live in Rotorua.
Kia Ora Ngatai
thankyou for your whakapapa we might all get to meet each over the internet, some more whanau from my nanny (Kumeroa) have made contact, she is from the Wainohu side. I will ask her if I can cut and paste her whakapapa on to this page,she send hers to me by private message so if its ok with her, I will do that. I live in the Waitangirua area so I most probably seen your brother in law around or even know him or know of him. So this is neat that we can share whakapapa like this.
Kia Ora Kiriwai

You can email me at this address firstname.lastname@example.org, i hope this will help you out.
kia ora IHoepo 1959 and to all our whanau who have posted up here.
I thought I'll have a quick nosey here before retiring for bed and found your post.
Nice to meet you IHoepo (cousin) and do say kiaora to your whanau. I must say if it was'nt for this site we probably not get to know each other aye, even if its not face to face, but at least we get to know all our whanau from here.
Are any of your father's brothers and sisters still living, we have one Auntie left, she is the youngest of my dad's whanau of 18, they all gone including all my dad's in-laws. But we have heaps of cousins,to name some, Winiata,from Foxton,Rotorua,Whanganui,and Raetihi and then my dad's sisters and who they married
Steadman's,Beattie's,Haddon's,Pohio,Wakefield's, Marsh,Toomey's, hope I did'nt miss anyone out.
Yeah so I wanted to get to know all my Nanny's whanau whom we never got to have much contact with, I have her whakapapa but that was about all. I have had some good contacts from here though and some have been quite funny, especially from Ngatai we ended up with a double dose of info. I was gonna email you but then I thought I'll open our site up again and maybe some more Rarere Whanau might come in.
So kiaora for your whakapapa, do stay in touch.
