TE TANIWHA Huingatini, looking for parents
I am searching for more information about the family of our kuia, Huingatini Te Taniwha.
We believe she came from the Maungatautari area, her parents Mohi Te Taniwha (aka Te Taniwha) and Te Waiehu.
I had posted a search in 2005-2006 and I did have some replies but the contact information for these people seem to have changed.
Wanting to know more about her parents families.
Her children to Andrew Berriman were:
Stanley Mohi, Te Waiehu and William Berryman.
Any photo's or korero would be much appreciated!
I am also in the same boat. Huingatini was also my GGGrandmother but our connection is through the Hall whanau. Did come across some Land Court records with reference to her whakapapa but very confusing to read. Showed her hapu etc but have had a bit of a mission trying to track them. Would like to jump on board with you and see what we can come up with between us. My daughter-in-law requested info on my behalf (before I got a computer) so time for me to resume it again myself. Kiaora
Here are links to the other posts that you did in 2005 for reference 🙂

Together we will get there!
Hi there I would love what info you have I am doing my Whakapapa and my
GGGGrandmother Ripeka (Taniwha )Puha she was married to Netana Puha her Father was Arapata Taniwha so far I haven't been able to fine who his parents were so any one with the surname Taniwha is a good name to follow .
It's been a few years and lots of information later and I am continuing to search for Huingatini Te Taniwha and her relatives. Huingatini Te Taniwha had children to Andrew Berriman, Stanley Mohi Berryman, William Arthur Berryman and Te Waiehu Berryman. I am currently following a lead that she went to a mission school across the river from Taupiri Maunga around the middle to late 1800"s as the eldest child was born in 1888, Stanley. Andrew Berryman was a constable in the Ngaruawahia and Huntly area's. He had a child to Huingatini he was barely two when he met and married another woman from Ngaruawahia, Mary Ellen Dalton. He had children to Mary Ellen Dalton and then return to Huingatini to have another two children, William and Te Waiehu.
I have found online a photo of Huingatini at Whatiwhatihua the house of the Maori king Te Wherowhero? I question what the connection is but I am still on the hunt.
Would love to connect with anyone who can help solve the mystery.
Stanley Berryman, Huingatini's eldest child married Te Oke Tarawhiti of Huntly and thus the Berryman's of Huntly have emerged. Many now living in Australia.
