This tupuna was my grandfathers father. My grandfather was Ahita Wiremu Brooking, better known as Ahita Williams. His mum was Ani Brooking. My dad was Heemi Williams. As far as I can gather Maru Whakatipua was born in the early 1800s. Thats all I know about him. I can guess that he was either Ngatiporou or Rongowhakaata. I would like to find other whanau linked to him that i am not aware of. Kia ora
