I am researching my Maori ancesters, Te Hiwi
married Hinehau Te Hau TUPOTO.
They had a daugther Te Hauauru who married a
Thomas BIRCH (Tamati PATU)about 1830 in the Hokianga.
Also looking for information about the Pa site of TUPOTO and also the Pa site Pouto Pa
on the North Kaipara, and an old Pa site of
Te Hiwis and is now a cemetery called Whataipu Pa and was on a farm once owned by a Mr Dick Pehi.
Would be gratefull of any help.
Thanks Margaret
