Kia ora koutou

I am trying to find a connection to Te Araroa. It has been said by whanau that the name Taunoa was originally Taunoa Wanoa from Te Araroa.
I would like any info to confirm this especially from people of Te Araroa as my Grandfather always mentioned the names together and that at some time past they were split thus the whanau Taunoa and the whanau Wanoa.

Kia ora

Rev Tunoa Wanoa was an Anglican minister on the Coast during the 50's and 60's. He married Ka Grace and I can recall Mary and Sarge being their kids. At one time he was based in Te Kaha but returned to Ruatoria. Perhaps some of the Punehu issues of George Taylor can help further. Try to contact Jackie Wanoa through Radio Ngati Porou.
