CLOUT, Steph: Mohi Te Hokaanga II
Ata marie whanau,
Im wanting to find information on an Mohi Te Hokaanga II one of my ancestors from the Kaipara area (early to mid 1800's). He is listed in the Marriner / Stanaway whakapapa. My memory is a little rusty but I think he had a wife named Wetekia from the Raglan area and 2 daughters called Henipapa and Witiperene. Both daughters married / lived with Captain John James Stanaway from the Kaipara. Does Mohi and his daughters names ring a bell with anyone? Can anyone fill me in on which area of the Kaipara Mohi came from and what were his iwi / hapu affiliations were? This question has nagged me for the last 10 years ... any suggestions are very welcome!
Dear Steph, Hi there. My husband's whakapapa briefly is as follows:-
Mohi Te Hokaanga II and Harihura MINARAPA had a daughter Witaperene (known as Black Ann) and she married Capt. John James STANAWAY.
Mohi Te Hokaanga II and Wetekia had a daughter Henipapa MINARAPA who also married Capt. John James STANAWAY.
Henipapa's daughter Irahepeti known as Rihi married the son of Witaperene, Ngaere Minarapa Tika-Stanaway. This couple had 6 children, one of whom was Kuwhara (known as Hera) who was my husband's great grandmother (I'm lucky enough to have a beautiful photograph of her). Hera married Hori MARENA (George MARRINER).
I've been able to find out that Mohi Te Hokaanga II was Chief Of Ngatiwhatua but not much else.
Peace, Rainbow from Australia.
