MAXWELL, Robert / PARIHI, Mereana

I am seeking help in finding information about my 3 x great-grandmothers family. I believe Mereana was born and raised up north in Towai and married Robert Maxwell, who was born in England, around the mid 1850's; their union produced a son Wiremu Poutu Maxwell. Upon the death of Robert Mereana married Irimana Houturangi. Irimana was stolen from the East Coast / Ngati Porou during the wars and after marrying Mereana he returned with her and her son to Hicks Bay.
Any information on any of these persons would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
