My Great Grandfather Arthur Thorpe used to live in Wairoa around the early 1900's. He had a relationship with Iripeti/Irihapeti PIRIHI.
My grandmother was conceived. May THORPE born 1905. She was the only child from this union. Arthur left the Wairoa district after they were unsuccessful in eloping. I believe he then left the district and travelled and lived in the South Island. Arthur would have been born around 1879. His family had a farm in the Wairoa district. His father

Would love any feedback.

Thanks

heres another to take a look at www.nzgeneology.rootschat.net/nuhaka2.html
Another place on that site is Hawkes Bay. Alot of good history in there too, I think your Nan married Matiu Smith. Goodluck with your search.

Kia ora
Just to add to your documentation
Irihapeti married Hoete or Waiariki
they had 2 children son Ahipene Hoete of Taheke-Rotorua and daugther Ruiha Hoete.
Irihapeti father was Whatapawhara and her mother was Hineringa
I'm not quite sure if this is the same Irihapeti?

Irihapeti (Peti)was a daughter of Pirihi Kaihote and Taraipine Lewis. After her relationship with Arthur Thorpe she had another with Harry Chase, giving birth to a son (George Nepia). Her last (husband) was Te Akonga Mohi...Many of their uri live in Hastings...

Kia ora ano k.sadler ma,
The name I found for Arthurs parents were Topi and Tera, although these are only oral sources could be somewhere to start from start, ah the english equivalent would be Tobi - Tobey Thorpe. Ah, the name for Peta I have is Nepia Peta Piripoi, it was still common to have fathers first name become the childrens surname and George in my info is the child of Irihapeti and Nepia.

peaceful regard

Kia ora all...one would naturally assume that George is the son of Peta Nepia...perhaps because he grew up with them...however, this was only after the age of 8...before then, he was raised by his kuia Taraipine Lewis
