TIWAI, Rewi Help with my whakapapa
Hi I need help with my partners whakapapa.
Rewi Tiwai is my partners GGgrandfather
Rewi died 1894 and he married Taara Mete
I believe they had five children: Miriauia, Karauria, Tawa, Heneriata and Hatepe Watene Tiwai (Ggrandfather)
Hatepe Watene Tiwai died 1920 he married Airini Te Heitawhiri
They had five children:Te Ngari Whakaari (1907-1980), Merehira(1907-1935), Ngariki(1905-1907), Tauaraia (1904-1905) and Te Reihana Watene (Tiwai)(1901-1982)Grandfather.
I do not know the reason but Te Reihana took Watene as his surname instead of Tiwai.
Te Reihana married Maata Martha Awarangi and they had 18 children.
Any information would be very much appreciated. My sincere apologies if any information above is incorrect.
