Is this the Pita / Peters whanau from Whangaruru?
The Pita & Davis whanau are from there.

There are [that I have knowledge of] 2 Pita / Peter families that tatai to Ngati Wai. One family originate from Whangaruru [about 50 kms north-east of Whangarei], and the other from Whananaki [again about 40 north-east of Whangarei]. New Zealand First MP, Winston Peters is from the whanau at Whananaki. Again the Pita / Peter families I know of from those areas have been there going back to the mid 19th century.

Hohaia.

Hi, I am looking for some information about my whanau. I have very limited information, but I can trace back to my Grandmother's Grandmother (I think), who was Dorothea Caroline Peters. She married Ferdinand Heinrich Schwamn. They were from the Whangaruru and Kaipara areas. Unfortunatley, I do not know the dates. I would really appreciate any information that you might have that I could follow up? Thanks, VAM.

Kiaora e hoa,

If your Grandmother came from Whangaruru then she comes from our tupuna Peter Antonio Cantido Da Mora (see: writings by granny Waitai). My Great Nana was his daughter. Some of his uri use Pita, some use Peters and others use Antonio. He had a large family and his children had many children, some had 17 to 20 in number. He also had a wife and family in the Far North and another in Ngati Porou.

There are heaps and heaps of us all over the motu.

Give me a pm and I will send you what I have. Granny Waitai's daughter-in-law is still alive and she still holds all the whakapapa for that line would be happy to help you.

Noho ora mai,

na Noved2

Kiaora Hohaia2,

Awesome e hoa, is the Mohi Pita you talk about from Mokau ki Whangaruru. If so, he would be the same Mohi who is the son of one of my grandfathers older siblings and Hoani Tautahi Pita, son of Peter Antonio Cantido Da Mora?

I know that they followed work all around the coast, from Mokau up the east coast to the Far North, across to the Hokianga and down to the Kaipara. Even further afield to Taranaki and again to the Hauraki Plains.

When work was good at the Timber mill they moved there, if the Whaling was good they followed the Whales and again with the potato season, gum digging and so on. No such thing as unemployment in their day......

So you are quite right e hoa, their children married all over the Motu ne and are connected to Henare Kaupeka Piripi.

Nga uri o Huruiki, mauri ora.

Hi Noved2,

I am really new to this, so am unsure how to go about looking for writings by granny Waitai. I am wondering if you might be able to point me in the right direction?

Again, thank you.

VAM
