If it is the same Te Whiu from the Hokianga, what I have been told is that he was the first to be converted to the Catholic faith and helped with the translating of the bible to maori. Let me know if its the same whanau

Much thanks for your reply. My understanding was that these two came from the Hauraki Gulf, South Auckland or Thames area.
Te Whiu Rangitakerehau is stated in one version I have but this is unclear as to whether it is the name of one person or 2 generations. I suspect the later with Te Whiu leading onto Rangitakerehau
These names Te Whiu and Te Wehi, are husband and wife but I am unsure which is which.
There is some confusion in regards to the name Te Wehi with many having it written as Wenu, Whenu or Wheu. Which is correct eludes me, perhaps they all were.
I would think their lives would have been around 1780 era a little before the main Missionary invasion, but I could be mistaken
thanks for your reply

No thats fine, I will keep you in mind if I find anything new for this line. Meanwhile I think it must be your whanau who are showing up under that name at Archives
www.archway.archives.govt.nz
Try the simple search option. Getting to the next page is often a pain on that site so I find its easier to enter the next pages number
Happy hunting

Oh I think you will find they are just "normal". Every family has the occasional black sheep and in many ways these are the ones who make family research more colourful and interesting
