TE NGAKAUITI, Huhana: 1800s Rotorua (related to SHAW, Kate: Rotorua 1900s)

Hi there (I also posted this on the finding Whanau message board...)

I'm trying to trace this family from the Rotorua area in the 1800s. I'd like to know more about our whakapapa. Kate (Shaw) told us that we are Ngati Rangiwewehi, but that's all we know. Any other info would be greatly appreciated! I’d really like to know more details of our tribal affiliations. Here's the info we do have:

Te Ngakauiti born in 1800s, lived in Rotorua - supposedly was taken by Hongi Hika to Kororareka and came back to Rotorua (possibly with a pakeha husband).

Her daughter was Huhana Te Ngakauiti (born in Rotorua, I imagine) – she married John James Piercy.

They had a daughter named Sara Piercy who married Fox Maule Carnachan.
(from Scotland).

Kate Shaw (the well known Rotorua author and personality – who died a few years ago aged around 105 years) was their daughter. She was born in 1896.

Thanks heaps to anyone who is able to help!
