Kia ora martin,
i'm also looking for some rellies of mine. My dads mum in particular. What was your papas first name, and do you know who his parents were? Mitimiti is one place that has been mentioned to me by one of the uncles. We're still not sure about our nannys name, before my dad died, he told me that her name was Margaret Martin. Dad was born in Wellington in 1939 and had a chinese dad. Dads mum died when dad was about seven years old, she was pushed out of a moving vehicle as far as he could remember, and she died as a result of her head hitting the ground. I'm hoping this tale might stir a few memory banks up, and maybe find someone that knew her, or is a descendant of hers. My step nanny is from up north. She was a Baker, and one of her sisters married a Nathan.

KIa ora
I know of some Nathans who are from Kaiwaka.My friend whose father passed away 2 years ago moved back to kaiwaka after living in Wellington for years.I was told by my friend that is where the Nathan's come from she mentioned some other surnames that have a connection Netana and Pateraua (I think that's right).My friends fathers name was Paul Nathan.I also grew up with some Nathans in Moerewa Bay of Islands, the father's name was Puhi Nathan (deceased).I will ask her next time I see her.
As for the Martin side my grandmother was a Martin from Pangaru her name is Mere Martin actually there surname was changed to Martin it was Karena before being changed by who? I don't know.I still have uncles living up there who are Topia's but there mother was a Martin I only know her by Aunty Girlie not sure on the real name.I to have a Aunty named Margret Martin she lived in Kawakawa up North.I will ask my dad about the Margret you are inquiring about.
So til then
Take care hope u have success in what u r lookin for
Ruby

Kia Ora Martin,
My mother inlaws maiden name is Martin, her whanau are from Mitimiti. Her Dad was Karu Martin,hes from a big family his parents names were Dargaville and Rachel Martin. I will have a look to see if i can make any connection for you. But as far as i am aware of the whanau i am talking about is related to the Stanaways which also have a link to the Marriners.

I am a descendant of the Stanaways. I am a great great great granddaughter of Henipapa and John James Stanaway. J.J Stanaway had 5 wives which collectively produced around 18 children. A stanaway book has been compiled from Mohi Te Hokaanga ( Henipapa's father ) to my generation. Email me and I will give you the details.

Regards

Jo
