I wonder if the Hinga line from Taranaki might be able to shed some light on these names. I would be very interested to see. I know there are Hinga's in the Wellington region also (since I lived a few streets away from one) and maybe their input would help also. As Hohaia says "The further you whakapapa back - we are all related"
Kia Ora Ngati Kuri.
Mihi Peka Hinga was the first wife to Rewiri Hongi Hika who was a decendant of Hongi Hika and a Maori Chief of Ngatimurukahara. Rewiri and Mihi had one son, Rewiri Murupaenga who was born in 1860 at Te Hapua and died in Te Hapua on May 28th 1928. Rewiri's wife was Emily Jobe (Emiri Hopa) the daughter of Thomas Hopa and Erina Hehi Paiuta. Emily (Emiri) was born in Pukepoto and died in 1917 in Te Hapua. I'm sorry i don't have the dates or whereabouts of Mihi Peka Hinga. My grandmother (Mihi Peka Murupaenga) was named after her. I do know that many of the old people from Te Rarawa and Ngati Kuri have some knowledge of her people.
Harata Paneere was the second wife to Rewiri Hongi Hika. There children were Nauma, Karanui, Panoro, Komene and Terekia. Nauma's wife was Makinihi Waitai and Karanui's wife was Harriet Herewini. I should also mention that Rewiri Murupaenga had a second wife after Emily Jobe. Her name was Maata Waitai. They had five children whereas Rewiri and Emily had eight children.
