Please can you helpI am trying to trace my 4 girls ancestor. I believe he came from England and settled in the far North. His name was James Edmonds. He had a son called Tamanuhiri with the Nickname Piwi. Tamanuhiri married Henipeepi Brown from Te Araroa. They had 6 children. My daughters fathers name is Manu. He died in 1996. Does anyone know of Tamanuhiri and or James Edmonds.

Check out the finding whanau link as there is a lot of korero happening there for the Edmonds whanau. i know there is a branch of the Edmonds family down the coast but I have never had the pleasure of meeting them. Also I know my nana is doing work on whakapapa for the mormon church, not quite sure of the site
