Tena koutou, I am trying to verify what my grand-mother's waka, iwi, hapu and marae might be. She was a Tauroa of Pupuke, Whangaroa.

I have the following which I am hoping someone could verify or correct here:

WAKA: Ngatokimatawhaorua
IWI: Ngapuhi
HAPU: Te Aeto me Ngati rangi mata momoe
MARAE: unknown (forgive me, I live overseas)

If anyone could help with info it would be much appreciated. Kia ora.

kia ora my name is Clarke i am from Pupuke also, the Tauroa family are connected to the Pihema whanau whom i belong, having looked at your pepeha so far i say kia ora, to my knowledge the marae for our 2 families is "Te Watea" this marae is situated near the end of Pupuke road, my Greatx3 grand fathers hapu was also Ngati Rangi as this is seen on his wooden headstone at Te Watea, everything else is the same as mine, however would know the mountain for that area???
