TE TANIWHA, Te Huingatini.
Im just trying to find anybody who knows of any whanau or relatives who link to Te Huingatini Te Taniwha. My mother-in Law has put together a whakapapa book but has only one missing Link and it would be greatly appreciated if anyone knew of the Kuia above. This Kuia has links to the Tauranga district.
Kia ora Char. As far as I know Te Huingatini Te Taniwha was from the Waikato area. She married twice, before eventually marrying Henare Hall aka Henry Hall or Hurimaunga Te Maanga from Ngati Tuwharetoa. They lived in both the Waikato and Taupo areas and had a number of children. One of those children was George Te Oti Hall and he travelled to Tauranga and married Mariana Borell of the Pirirakau hapu of the Ngati Ranginui Iwi in Tauranga. George and Mariana lived near where the Paparoa Marae now stands in Te Puna. They had a number of children, including Harold Hall aka Harry or Tiddles, who was my father. So Te Huingatini Te Taniwha is my Great Grandmother. I donâ€™t know where Te Huingatini is buried but I know that Henare Hall is buried in our family urupa in Te Puna. I have a photo of Te Huingatini. I could scan a copy and send it to you if you havenâ€™t got one already. Noho ora mai, Meegan Hall.
Huingatini Te Taniwha's other husband was William Berryman from Pipiriki area, Wanganui. Their children were Arthur, Stanley and Te Waiehu. Stanley Mohi Berryman married Te Oke Tarawhiti fromt he Huntly, Waikato area and they had a number of children. One of those children was Thomas Mohi Berryman who married Rangitukua Wharekura and their son Ernest is my husband. Stanley had another wife Liley Snowden. I can send you copies of the geneological lines in more detail if you want...Ka kite...Karen Berryman
If anyone has photographs of Huingatini Te Taniwha they would be greatly appreciated. When I teach my children about their ancestors and we can only give them a name it seems like something is missing but when they can also identify that person by a photo of them it has deeper meaning. Also if anyone has any information on her life that would be greatly appreciated. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org...ka kit te ano....Karen Berryman
Kia Ora ikaptm,
Thanks so much for sending the photo to my daughters email address. She's seems quite young in the photo, you couldn't tell me how old could you?
Me and my husband were so excited to see a photograph of her. He could see similarities in the facial features of Huingtini and some of his Uncle's and Aunties. We thank you and will treasure this photograph along with any other information you may have about her. We would love to know more about her character and personality and we also noticed from the photo she had a moko, any information you can give us that we can pass to our children about their great great grandmother would be priceless!! Thanks another picture in the puzzle has been filled...arohanui Karen Berryman
I too have connections to Huingatini. As far as I know, my grandmother (now deceased) maybe related to her thru the Berryman connection. Someone mentioned they have a pic of Huingatini, I was wondering, if it's at all possible, to get a look at this pic as like many, it will put face value to our whakapapa.
Hey Char it's Ani from Te Kakano. Um well Huingatini is my 2X great grandmother on the Hall side, I come from her tamahine Vida a.k.a Te Mare. My grand aunt in Te Kuiti knows abit about her. Huingatini lived at Maungatautari as a child, um I think her mother was from there. Um yup they did live in Taupo. I know korero on her father but it's best coming from aunty. just give us an email or call into the centre and we'll have a catch up. My mum looks heaps like Huingatini too.
