Hello, Trying to locate family or information on the following,
WILSON, Charles (Charlie)
Married or relationship with
KOMENE or OUTRAM Takurua
Possibley born 1909 Aramohoe, Northland
These two likely had children, and are buried together at Kaikohe Cemetery.
Family rumour names the bride as surname KOMENE, however on grave search info it comes up as OUTRAM, so perhaps she was was married prior ? Her parents may be
Father: Matutaera KOMENE
1885 <Northland, New Zealand
Died Northland, NZ
Mother: Hana HEREPO
1889 <Northland, New Zealand
Death: Dead Aramahoe, Northland, New Zealand
Married 1910 Northland , NZ
Any assistance apprecited.
Can anyone help me make sense of the document on the following link, I found it while googling the name Takurua Komene. Being a random search its hard to make head or tail of, I know it has to do with land.
Mentioned also succession at Kaikohe is Edward Wilson-Takurua Komene, Charles above had a brother Edward who also lived & died in Kaikohe. Or maybe This Edward is a child of Charlie and Takurua.
Maybe this is a way I could locate living family, further down the track ?
Hi there, just had a look at that link it was a date set for a land succession hearing with the Maori Land Courts for a section or land for a Takura Komene. The applicant's name who was applying for the sucession was Edward Wilson.
The application number is A20050006042.
You may want to ring the M.L.Courts up north and have a talk to them. I have found the staff at the land courts quite helpful. They usually can tell you a few things over the phone.
Hope this helps.
Takurua Komene is my grandfather's older sister. My grandfather's name is Jerry Komene (Here).
Nanna Taku used to live next door to my grandfather, at Butler Road, Kerikeri.
The information you have concerning their parents is correct.
Takurua married Charles Wilson. They have 4 children, 3 boys and a girl. The boys are Billy (William), Laurie (deceased) and George. Their daughter is Alice, who is also deceased.
Years after Charles Wilson passed away, she remarried Tom Outram. They had no children.
If you want anymore information, ring (07) 3665 613.
