I am not surprised you are having a spot of bother, there really isn't too much infomation for others to work with, perhaps the surname of your tupuna or perhaps or sometimes a christian or nick name helps I myself come from Oturu i am also walker my dad was max and he married tea there are still some walkers at home, we left there some 50yrs ago treat yourself and go up there if you get the opportunity, its a beautiful part of NZ happy hunting and all the best with the search feel free to contact me God Bless

Boyne is related through my great grandfather Tamati PAHU TIPENE.
His father’s name is Kanapu TIPENE and his grandfather’s name is Tamati PAHU – TIPENE. Tamati PAHU TIPENE is buried at Hikinui (Oturu urupa) next to his daughter (my grandmother – Mereana TAKINUI).
Their Iwi is Ngati Kahu….a sub tribe of Ngapuhi.

Hope this helps.
