Hi all. I'm trying to find family and friends of a Harry Stephens.

Harry moved to Australia,  sometime in the 70s I believe. He had a wife and possibly 7 children, who he left in New Zealand. I believe he went to Sydney.

He told me his area was in the top of the north island. Apparently when he was in New Zealand, he used to party with his nephew a bit.

Harry turned 74 this year, I believe. His birthday was in September.

Anyone who knew him or his family, please contact me.

I'm sorry but that's all the information, I really know of him

Thanks

Wayne

An alteration on this post.

Apparently Harry Stephens, came to Australia in the 80s sometime, and stayed at his nieces place in Sydney.

It's believed he travelled to the Northern Territory, when he left Sydney.

The urgency is to inform his family of some news about him.

Thanks.

Do you know if he had any Maori names? Also, any idea of place or area that he may have been from?

Unfortunately no I don't have any Maori names. If it's any help apparently his parents were Henry and Mary. Sorry no Maori names there either. His date of birth was 26/09/1945 apparently. Apparently he came to Australia in the 1980's. Sorry I don't have more information. Trying to notify family or relatives of his passing in October.

Appreciate you getting back to me 🙂

@whakapapa-club - maybe you could post this on our Whakapapa Club facebook page so the word can get out?

I have added a post on our facebook page as follows:

HE PANUI!
Harry STEPHENS (maybe aka Hare TIPENE?) born maybe 26/09/1945. Parents maybe Henry (Henare?) and Mary (Mere?). Moved to Aus in the 1980's. Maybe from Tai Tokerau.
Kua mate ia.
If you know him or want more details, post at the forum post link below
