kia ora, I have my Ruru whakapapa which seems to be the same as yours. Do you know anything of Te O tina's husband Edward James Broughton? Where he came from, etc i cant seem to find anything at all on him. Do you have a n email? I could try and copy what i have and email it to you. If you could pass on anything at all about the Broughton side that would be greatly appreciated.
