I am looking for any information on the name Titoko, especially the name Te Uru Keiha Titoko who married Hori Clay. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
According to Koopu Erueti, the original Titoko was a tohunga of Te Whakatohea iwi. A composition of his is Waiata 223 in Nga Moteatea Vol 3. It would be probable that he is a tipuna of Te Uru Keiha as Clay is certainly a Whakatohea name. You should be able to get some information on that family in Opotiki as the first Clay was a British soldier who came to fight in the area. Sorry, you probably already know this and I'm teaching you to suck eggs.
