BISHOP,PEETI TUMANGO RANGI (LADDY): FROM WANGANUI
Trying to find any whakapapa on my Great-Grandfather's whanau, (Peeti Tumango Rangi Bishop otherwise called Laddy). He was married to nana Nua. My great-grandparents had a large whanau. Their eldest son is called Te Wano Bishop who now lives in Auckland.
I was told the whanau is from Raetihi,wanganui area. From Te Atihauni a paparangi tribe. The whanau marea is believed to be Putiki marea.
Any information is very much appreciated.
Who are your parents, is Wano your koro, I know your whanau very well, on both sides. I usually stay with your Aunty Aileen in Whanganui, whenever I decide to stay a night there. You shall have no problem finding info, if you want to contact Aileen, let me know and I will ring her for you or give you her phone number.
Yes my Koro is Wano, my mother is Lynette she is his secound youngest daughter.I would be greatful for any info i can get. As I don't really know any of my koro's whanau on either side except for the immediate whanau that live in Auckland.
your Koro and I are first cousins, our mothers are sisters, they shared the same mum, but different fathers, my mum was from the 2nd marriage, they have no more brothers or sisters left now, the last of the line a brother&sister, died 2004-2005 both were in their 90s, but their is one sister-in-law left. On uncle laddy's side well because I was brought up in Raetihi after moving from (Taihape where my father's whanau is from), Uncle Laddy had a few brothers and sisters living there and thats how I know them very well. Somebody else from the whanau may want to add on from here. Both sides of the whanau is huge, So stay in touch.
Hello, I think you are my cousin. My dad is Percy Tumango Bishop. My dad died here in Australia in 1991 and not long after my nana Nua died. Your koro (Wano) is my my dads eldest brother. I dont know much about my dads family, but my mum Memory Bishop (maiden name: McKay) or my older brother will know much more. I'll keep in contact.
For Alandia and Leah
Here is something that I found a while ago over the internet Mr R. P. Turoa
A direct descendant of one of the chiefs who signed the Treaty of Waitangi, Mr Rangi Bishop of Raetihi died recently.
Mr Bishop was related to Pehi Turoa, who was the paramount chief of the Whanganui River from 1815 to 1845.
Pehi's son was Pakore Turoa and his grandson Topia was one of the several New Zealand chiefs who met Queen Victoria when they visited England.
Mr Bishop whose full name was Rangiapohia Pihopa Turoa, played for the Raetihi Rugby Club and was a keen wrestler. He wrestled with Lofty Blomfield and Dave Scarrow in amateur bouts in Raetihi.
He was also a rough rider of note and broke in wild horses. In his younger days, Mr Bishop owned some of the best show jumpers in the country.
this was taken from one of the old Maori News magazines way back in the 60's when I remember the name of the book, I'll put it in.
Yes, I also found that information on the net as well. Do you by any chance have any more info on the family besides this.The only info I have is basicaly of just the immediate whanau that live up here in auckland.
Kia Ora Alandia, I to am researching the same whanau I believe Te Wano had three brothers and three sisters â€œTukahuiâ€ is my great grandmother her son â€œWairua Joker Makateaâ€ married â€œNgatano Rupuhaâ€ My Kuia from Otoko Pa. I would like to learn any as I can about â€œTukahuiâ€ such as her full name, birth/death date, Father/motherâ€™s first & last name.
Iâ€™m unsure if â€œParakiwaiâ€ is Takahuriâ€™s last name.
I have a little whakapapa on each her brothers and sisters (Te Kahu, Te Kata, Mere, Te Hira and Te Oro Kairakau - No Info on this person.
Sorry I have one name for â€œTe Wanoâ€ which I think you have â€œHinehoroâ€
