CUTLER Alfred Rewi
Hi, my grandfather Alfred Rewi Cutler was born in Wellington around 1904. His father, Cecil and mother Constance, were born in Auckland (I think). I am interested to know if anybody has any ideas as to how my grandfather may have come to have the name Rewi as I beleive this to be a Maori name, but my father doesn't know of any Maori background in our family as his father, Alfred Rewi emigrated to Australia alone and did not speak much of his family in New Zealand. Alfred died when my father was young and my father knows of no other relatives. Any information would be helpful.
