Marumaru, Morehu, Samuels
Kia Ora, I am trying to trace my ggggrandfather & grandmother who have connections to the East Coast, Napier/Hastings area. Their names are Anaru Morehu Marumaru & Ngarere Samuels/Hamiora.
They eventually ended up in the Coromandle/Hauraki area. I dont know to anything about them and where they came from apart from some whakapapa written out by my grandmother which bascially stopped with them. Their daughter Ataria Ngapiki is my gggrandmother and I cant remember if her sisters name was Hikimate or Kitemate? I know there is other children but cant think of there names off hand.
Any help or information would be much appreciated.
Kia Ora Pono,
Thanks for that I shall follow that up. I have how ever been to the land courts and have found that the other children of Anaru & Ngarere are Hori, Hana, and Rangi. And the other sisteris Kitemate.
Interesting enough in the land records it has land being passed to Anaru from a Te Reirangi Kaho...and I have no Idea who this person is.

Kia Ora Taiga,
Im not to sure if these are the same Morehu & Hamiora whanau from Rotorua. Although we do have a connection to Rotorua through my Hoani side of the whanau. If you coudl shed some more light on the Morehu/Hamiora whanau from Rotorua it would be much appreciated. Thanks heaps for your reply.
Kia Ora Matiu5, Can you send me a email. Just wanting to get in contact with regards to Rangi. As yes you do speak of the same family I am wanting to know more about. Email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
My Grandfather was Te Mapu "MOREHU MARUMARU" but he dropped the Marumaru and keeped the Morehu. My brother Wayne John Morehu may be able to help you as he is into our whkapapa in a big way. I think our tipuna came from down the East Coast up to Manaia, Coromandel & Thames where we are today. anyway this is his email address incase you want to follow it up.
Arohanui with your quest and you never know we just maybe whanau.
Kia Ora...Thanks so much for your reply. I spoke to Wayne earlier this year and yip we are whanau for sure! He was able to give me info which shed some light on a few things. I have also had emails from Matiu5 who is also whanau. Gee what a small world aye! Anyway keep in touch for sure I really enjoy finding long lost whanau its awesome.
