TE PEINGA of Ngati Maniapoto POUTU of Ngati Raukawa
Kia Ora I am needing help with whakapapa to my Great great Grandmother Waana Kahukopeka Pororua born 1820's Pokuru Te Awamutu. She married George Gage a trader on the Waipa River. Waana's Mother was Te Peinga of Ngati Maniapoto,Ngati Raukawa and Ngati Huiao. Her Father was Poutu born at Maungatutu of Ngati Raukawa. Te Peinga whakapapas to Kuia
I would very much like to know about Waana and where she is buried.
If anyone can guide me in my search I would be very grateful.
Hi I am Sarah Allen's great great great grandaughter
Sarah was Mary Gages daughter and of course Waana (Poroua) Gage's daughter. I have photo of Waana and have been told the same photo is at Turahia Marae between Paeroa and Te Aroha and she may be there.
Our family has no idea where Mary is and thought she may have been in Ragalan. Im on the same search as you, what is your link down from Mary?
Hi Suevw, Just read through your info on the Allen side to discover you are Williams grandaughter, so Sarah who is my great x2 not x3 grandmother must have been one of the older sisters who raised him, My grandmothers has a bit of info about the family going to Opotiki. Did you contact Rikirangi Gage and come up with any info.
