Kia ora, am trying to find out the links between my great grandmother and members of the Manihera whanau who lie at rest in the urupa located down Cemetary Rd, Maunu.(not the public Maunu cemetary).
It is a very old burial site which back in the day provided a place for eternal rest for our tipuna. Both my great grandparents are buried there. The surname Manihera appears on several large headstones (one stone has the name Irihapeti Manihera) and are positioned next to where my koroua/kuia lie.
I have searched several sites (including LDS genealogy sites) and have bits and pieces of info on the name Manihera from Tai tokerau.
If anyone out there is willing to share what history or whanau connections they may have or know in relation to this urupa i would be most grateful.

Kia ora e hoa,

The name Kauwhata comes to mind. Manihera Kauwhata had many children, and some of his descendants would have adopted his first name as their surname, which was a common practise regarding whakapapa. This is only a suggestion, and may lead you towards the Manihera Whanau you seek.
All the best!

Hohaia.

I spoke with a cousin the other day concerning the urupa pass the Maunu Public Cemetery. I have yet to visit it, so I'm unsure whom the tupuna they lay at rest there. I have a strong feeling that there is a connection with Manihera Miramira, a tupuna from Kororareka [Russell] and Te Rawhiti. Kairau Manihera had 2 sons to a tupuna from here [Te Rawhiti] named Riwia Weera [Wells]. Riwia also had another relationship with Whiu Hau [Howe] from here also. My cousin is a son of Whiu and Riwia Hau [Howe].
The alternative name this Manihera whanau use is Maunsell.
Do these any of these names ring a bell to you? Wells or Weera; Hunia; Howe or Hau; Manihera or Maunsell. There are also connections with the Manihera line at Te Ahuahu [Hapu: Te Uri Taniwha].
Just giving you possibilities to follow.

Hohaia.

There are a couple of Maunsell-Kauwhata that reside in Kaikohe. If you want I can check to see whether there is a connection with your whanau m/b.

Tirarau Manihera and Kairau Manihera were brothers. Their father was Renata Manihera.
Renata's father was Manihera.
Kairau and Riwia Adelaide Weera [Wells] had 2 sons, Tom and Donald Maunsell. The parents of Riwia were Hone Weera and Marara Hunia.
Donald Maunsell died in WWII. The following is from the Commonwealth War & Graves Commission records:
21451, New Zealand Infantry
who died age 32
on 02 June 1941
Son of Kairau Maunsell and of Ada Maunsell (nee Wells).
Manihera's ancestors were of Ngapuhi and Ngai Tahuhu.

na Hohaia.
