Much thanks nellz for the information. Some of the Maxwell decendants in Sydney are holding a reunion over Easter. They come from Andrews brother Patricks line, send me a PM if you live in that area and would like more info on who to contact

Kia ora Joy

Patrick Maxwell is my great-great-great grandfather. One of his daughters was Okeroa who married Wiremu Reupene Hetaraka (my mothers grandfather). They resided in a settlement called Waitarata (Clevedon)where our whanau still lives today. My grandmother was Mere Mahu Hetaraka (one of their daughters).

Hope this helps.
