URUROA, Te: of Whangaroa, Tai Tokerau
Seeking any whakapapa for Te Ururoa of Te Taahawai of Whangaroa. Born late 1700's?? Son of Te Koke and Nehe. I have good whakapapa for Te Koke back to Haiti tai Marangai of Ngati Kahu/Te Whanau a Moana, but would like to know more about Nehe as well.
Te Ururoa's daughter Turikatuku Makareta married James Berghan. Who was the mother of Turikatuku/wife of Te Ururoa?
Kotahi i te tatai i whakaheke mai a Kawhiwhi ki a Ururoa, kei te timatanga:
Ko Kawhiwhi i puta mai i a Te Paeora
Ta Paeora i puta mai i a Kahutaiki
Ta Kahutaiki i puta mai a Rangiawetini
Ta Rangiawetini i puta mai i a Karomehaunga
Ta Karomehaunga i puta mai i a Te Aokikarioi
Ta Te Aokikarioi i puta mai i a Te Onetai
Ta Te Onetai ka moe ia a Te Mutunga 1
I puta mai ia a Kohine
Ko Kohine ka moe i a Tapuiti
I puta mai a Te Mutunga 2 me ona tuahine ko Nehe raua ko Moerimu
O nga wahine rangatira katoa o Te Koki
Ko Nehe ka moe ia a Te Koki
I puta mai a Ururoa [a.k.a. Rewharewha Te Koki]
Ko Ururoa ka moe ia a Ruruhi
I puta mai o nga tini uri.
Kia ora Berghan raaua ko Hohaia2
My great-grandfather (ggf) was Waikeri HEKE
=Hera Kai-mau PIHEMA
I don't really know much about his tipuna except what I have found on the LDS site, following ....
My gggf, his father was Heke URUROA
=Maata Korohu TE HOKA
My ggggf, his father was Ururoa Rewharewha TE KOKI
My gggggf, his father was TE KOKI
I recognise some common names on your postings. I'm actually researching my HEKE (and PIHEMA) whakapapa.
As a result of your whakapapa haerenga:
1. Have you encountered any of my HEKE (or PIHEMA) whakapapa before?
2. Any suggestions on who I might contact to find out more?
3. Is what I have shown (from LDS site) 'correct'?
Looking forward to any correspondance.
Kia ora Phantom, the whakapapa I have for Te Koki is :
parents: Tahapango and Taingariu
g/parent: Te Puta, who was born at Taupo Bay and of Ngati Mokokohi and Kai Tangata.
ggg/parent: Rangi te Hotanga
ggggg/parent: Haiti tai Marangai who is a major Tupuna of Te Whanau a Moana/ Ngati kahu
Try looking in the http://www.dnzb.govt.nz site and also in the Muriwhenua land claim files of the Waitangi Tribunal, there is a lot of info there.
Kia ora Mark,
My apologies for this late response as my postings weren't sticking last week to this page. To your query, I can't say if this is a Kaitangata line. That whakapapa was recited by one, Ruinga Tapu at a pre-1900 Land Court sitting: Ref: 3 Northern Minute Book / folio 15. He included the 3 wives of Te Koki, the sisters Te Mutunga, Nehe, & Moerimu all of Ngati Rangi.
If I gather anymore info, I'll send it on down the line to you.
Kia ora Hamish [a.k.a. Phantom Maori],
My apologies for this very late response. I can confirm to you that the records you found on the www.familysearch.org site in regards to Waikeri Heke are accurate.
His father was Heke Ururoa.
Waikeri had 2 brothers also. They were Rika Heke and Putete Heke.
I have Waikeri born circa: 1864.
So I'm guessing that you are a descendant of either Repoama [a.k.a. Rehopoama] Waikeri Heke or Manu Waikeri Heke.
Hope this helps!
Kia ora te whanau,
My great grandmother was Ngakirikiri Wiremu Tangata married my great grandfather Whitinui Kainamu (my grandfather is Toetoe Whitinui from Kaitaia Ratana Minister).
Ngakirikiri's mum was Tura Wiremu Tangata who was married to Te Ahu Wiremu Tangata. Tura was the daughter of Hare Hongi and Mokikiri and Hare Hongi the son of Hongi Hika and Turikatuku...
In relation to Patungahere the whakapapa is all good....I have 3 womens names for Te Ururoa (Patungahere, Miriama Ngakaikarere, Rangi Puhi
Children for Patungahere
= Ururoa Paora
= Heke (Hone) Ururoa
= Raupane Erana (Snowden)
and then the children of Miriama and Rangi his other two wives or partners.
On my fathers side
Whitinui----Kainamu-----Pumipi----Te Puhi----Te Uinga---Kahu Taka----Te Kaka-----
Hapu === Ngati Uru
Iwi ==== Nga Puhi
Mountain === Pohue/Miemie
River ==== Pupuke
Marae ===== Taitimu
waka ==== Mataatua
All the best

Kia ora nga whanaunga
I too, am a descendant of Te Ururoa = Patungahere.
The heke I'v seen down to Te Ururoa is similar to mine and goes back to Ngati Pou, Ngati Uru and Ngati Manu. I'm from the Snowden line, and thats right about Te Ururoa's daughter Ellen (Erena), she is my tupuna whaea. Her mother Patungahere comes from the waka Tinana, ko Tumoana te tangata.
I am one of the many mokopuna of Henry Davis Snowden and Erena, who are my gg grand parents. My dad was Wairama, his dad - Te Ngoharawe (Barney), his dad - Haki Reweti (Jack), his parents of course were Henry and Erena.
Kia ora taatou
