Just checking, it the Piripi whanau are also from Waikato or north as there is a Piripi whanau from north.

Kia ora ano Sandra,

That is one thing I love about here, you learn all the time and find other bits of info to add to your kete

Okay, if you go to http://www.familysearch.org.nz/ and do a search for the surname Piripi and set the country to New Zealand, you will find a large listing of Piripi whanau. Many of them are from north, but there are also others from the Waikato area - you will have to do quite a bit of reading but amoungst it all may be the info that you are looking for.

Note, not all of the info on this site is accurate, but is a great place as a starting point

Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!

Kia ora Sandra

I got your name off my cousin and i am glad to find you. The Piripi/Wirihana whānau are from Te Hoe, Hoe-o-Tainui area. My Great Great Grandmothers name was Hinenui Piripi and i think there is a possibility that we could be whānau. I am researching our whakapapa also along with my cousin Cynthia whose mums maiden name is Piripi. You are welcome to e-mail me at busky310@hotmail.com. I am going to e-mail this panui to my cousin and who knows we might be able too make some connections.

Tena Koe I know a little bit about this line. I am researching Taramaiwhatu Matiaha. According to my husband's grandmother - Arahia, who was Taramaiwhatu's daughter - Ngamako was a sister to her mother Te Mutu, they had two brothers Topoto and Hakopa. Topoto was married to Ngahikatea the old lady with the moko, immortalised by Michael King's article on her. Ngamako had a son Timi who married Te Mutu + Taramaiwhatu's daughter - Kirikowhai - is this your line? I'd love to hear from you in regards to my own research. I've found Maori Land Court records useful for this family.

Tena Koe I am the granddaughter to Kirikowhai whom married Jim Piripi. My mother is the daugher to Kirikowhai and her name is Rangiwhia she married Sonny Moana and these are my parents. You may have had a msn from my cousin Dianne whom we are both searching for our whanau. But I was very interested in your comment about the book from Michael King writing about our tupuna. Hope to hear from you soon.

Kia Ora Cynthia I know who you are now. I'm married to Tumua, Who was raised by Arahia. Are you in Hamilton? We meet regularly with whanau in regards to the farm at Mangapiko for two reasons 1 - we plan to put a building there 2 - we are compiling whakapapa the next one is in July I forgot the date but I'll let you know - we meet at Hopuhopu. I'm happy to meet up with you + share info, we're in Ngaruawahia but in Hamilton most days, let me know if you want to meet.

I find this very interesting as the lady with the moko immortalised by michael king is my grandmothers eldest sister Ngahikatea Wirihana. I had been researching to whom she was married as she retained the Wirihana name thru her lifetime.I was enquiring as to who her husband and children were. You can email me at dorrick123@hotmail.com ij you can help.
Thanks
