TAIMORIA, Erina - Ngati Wharara Kokohuia
Kia Ora everybody,
I'm still on my tangent trying to trace my Nanas great Grandmother... I have been given the possible Maori name that she may have been known as. She was known in later years as Erina Ferguson who married a Kelly but I have been given an old document with her possible name as Erina Taimoria. She was born around early to mid 1800's.
She was born in Kaikohe or Waihau/Waiho/Waihou Valley, Hokianga and the documents also say her hapu was Wharara Kokohuia.
Has anyone up there heard of this name or any Fergusson/Ferguson names? Erina had 5 boys and 5 girls and there is a rumour she may have married someone in the Leaf Whanau. She married 3 times so she may be also known as someone else.
Once again thanks everyone for your help!
