TE NANA, Hiria
could any one knowing of this name please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org. I am researching into my grt grt grt grandfather and his parents to see how far i can go back i have asked about Hiria his mother and who she was well no one knows so any help would be appreciated this is what i have so far. Hiria the person i am asking about had a child to Horace or Thomas Parkes an American from a whaling ship visiting the Bay of Islands. The child was a boy and was named William Parkes nee Wiremu Paaka our grt grt grt grandfather he was born about 1840 and married Ria Rewha. Hiria also had another child to James Clendon a boy named Himi Clendon. She then married Here Tenana in 1874 the reason for Clendon Te Nana. The information above has been gathered on hearsay so please do not get offended if i have things wrong and feel free to correct me. Kia Ora.
On the right-hand side of my great grandmother's grave is one Hiria Te Nana interred at the Christ Church cemetery in Kororareka [Russell].
My great grandmother, Ria Hakaraia died in 1896-7. I believe this is the mother of Wiremu Paaka and Himi Te Nana.

Kia ora koe Nyrenea,
Hiria's father was Te Nana 2 and her mother was Hinetara, if I'm not mistaken. I am in Auckland at the mo and all my whakapapa and notes are back at home in Te Rawhiti. I'll email the whakapapa when I get home [whenever that'll be].
Keep in touch.
Ma te wa...
na Hohaia Hakaraia.
