Hello, I am looking for any ancestors / descendants of Eraiha Ngapaki whom married William Wood 04 December 1842 in Queen Charlotte Sound. Eraiha is of Te Ati Awa descent, but what hapu I am not sure. Eraiha and William moved to live at Pipitea Pa in 1849 until their deaths in 1863. We no nothing on Eraiha's whanau other than she was from Te Ati Awa, as at the time of William's arrival (1839) and marriage to Eraiha, that Te Ati Awa lived in this area at the time. I would assume Eraiha (hopefully) had brothers and sisters which have present day descendants, and be willing to share Eraiha's whakapapa. I am willing to share William's whakapapa in return.
